Good Sunday morning, everyone!😊 I figured I would wander into our Nest, straighten things up (not that it’s necessary), and open the door. Several positive items: the reintroduction of Medicare For All, the positive environmental folks like Deb Haaland that Biden’s staff have hired, and the union situation down in AL. I hope the workers say yes, and give Borg Bezos a big finger! Anywho, the Nest is Open. Enjoy! ☮️😊👍
**We are early morning risers down here. No problemas in making this a double dip OT. 😊👌
From the editorial Page of today’s NY Daily News in an article titled, The Path from Poverty?
“In South Dakota, no Liberal place, there’s a new groundswell of support for expanding people’s ability to qualify for Medicaid. Before now, South Dakota was among roughly a dozen states that had resisted Medicaid Expansion for years, which became available after Obamacare was implemented.
What gives?” asks the DN. There’s more but the conclusion is, “The message rings clear…helping people stay healthy and out of poverty helps every one of us.”
Missouri was the latest state to expand Medicaid in the 2020 election that also brought us Cori Bush.
We are not going to get the prize—M4A—this year. But we very well may see the Medicare age lowered to 60 and Medicaid in (almost) every state.
The third pillar of my personal goal is for Medicaid income limits be raised to include even more people.
And yes, I am aware that this is selling out in the view of many of our participants.
"I happen to think that at the end of the day we have to end the filibuster… It is just unfair and undemocratic for a minority of the Senate to prevent what the majority of people want in this country, in the House and in the Senate," says Sen. Bernie Sanders. pic.twitter.com/I76MqjL68g
