Healthcare Is The Winning Issue For Democrats In 2020



The Democratic Party right now, at least a
good handful of some of the candidates have some really good plans on how to move this
country forward. I mean, Elizabeth Warren every other day at
this point is coming out with a well detailed plan on how to accomplish what she wants to
accomplish. We have other candidates out there, Bernie
Sanders leading the charge on issues like Medicare for all. Okay. Other candidates are little kind of milk toast
on. Some of these things may be there for them. Maybe they're not, they're not 100% sure. They just don't see how it's feasible. Hell, we've got Andrew Yang out there too,
by the way, pushing for universal basic income here in the United States, but with all these
plans and and they are some really great plans here. There is one issue that Democrats absolutely
need to put front and center and that issue is healthcare. That's it. And I'm not even saying that that is the most
important issue. I'm saying that's the one that Democrats have
to put at the front because I do believe that healthcare is one of the most important issues. But we also need a candidate that is going
to be stronger than acid with regards to combating climate change and protecting the environment. That to me is absolutely top of the list with
healthcare coming in at not even number two, probably one and a half. It's so close to climate change, but without
fixing climate change, literally nothing else will matter in the future. So anyway, the reason I say that we have to
put healthcare over climate change in talks is because that is actually what the public
wants by a 17 point margin. People say that Donald Trump's stance on healthcare
makes them not want to vote for him. In 2020 40% of people compared to 23% of people
say that, hell no, I'm not voting for this guy because he's awful on healthcare. There's your winning issue, democrats, healthcare. Now that doesn't mean that you just get to
go out there and talk about how Donald Trump sucks on healthcare. That's not good enough either. What you have to do is go out there and say,
listen, healthcare in this country is awful. The private sector, the hospitals, big Pharma
Insurance Companies, we've given them decades to fix the problem. They have failed, they failed, and we're private. Industry fails. The government always steps in. We did it when the big banks failed, gave
him a couple trillion dollars. We did it when the auto industry failed. We did it when the farming industry failed
because of Trump's trade wars. That wasn't their fault, but we still help
them and now the healthcare industry has failed the American public, but we give the health
care industry bailout. We should give the American public a bailout. It's time to stop rewarding companies and
industries and sectors that fail. Give it back to the people and that's exactly
what Medicare for all would do and that is what the Democrats need to talk about. The people in this country, broad majorities
of every single party want this. They want this poll show that people don't
want to vote for Donald Trump just because of his stance on healthcare. Republicans are so backwards on healthcare
that they had to come out publicly and say at the beginning of April that we suck so
hard at healthcare. We're not even going to bother coming up with
a plan, and so after the next election, I, they've only had 10 years to come up with
a plan, but now they're telling us to do. Even that wasn't long enough. Give us another year and a half vote for us
again and then we're totally going to have a plan for you. They won't. Their plan's going to be more of the same. Try To repeal the affordable care act. Kicked tens of millions of people off their
health insurance, no longer cover people with preexisting conditions. Make all of our premiums rise. Do nothing about rising costs of drugs in
this country. Even though the government subsidizes most
of the research and development and then their ego. That's the Republican plan or vote for one
of these Democrats out there saying, we need medicare for all. That's what we're going to do. We're going to give every single person in
this country healthcare coverage. That's it. That's what we're going to do. And according to the Koch brothers, it's going
to save us $2 trillion over the next 10 years. It's an economic winner. It is a humanity winner. And I guess more importantly for those running
for president, it is an electoral winner. Democrats want to prevail in 2020 put healthcare
front and center, because that is what the American people want. That is the issue they most want fixed. And that is the issue that Democrats are in
the lead on. Specifically those Democrats who are pushing
for Medicare for all.

  1. Single Payer is number one …because it can be achieved quickly…with in a 2 to 4 year transition time.

    Achieving cures to climate change can be convoluted in creating ….choosing….the best path way (s).
    Sorry…that should be number 2 ….for now…. since the battle for Single Payer will still be huge.

  2. Get single-payer healthcare
    Get money out of politics
    Bring back the old regulations on wallstreet, the big banks and the big corporations
    Raise rich peoples taxes so working-class people don't have to make up the difference
    Get taxpayer-funded tuition-free college
    End corporate welfare
    Get electoral reform: mail-order ballots in all the states, have rank-choice voting in all the states, open primaries, ect.
    Make the unions strong again
    Make the minimum wage a living wage
    Get out of all these unnecessary, unjustified wars

    These are all issues democrats should run on.

  3. now hold it, trump said that after he wins in 2020 that he will revamp the healthcare system so that no one will have healthcare.

  4. I retired from a hospital after 28 years my cobra cost was 570 dollars a month the cost was 1200 dollars a month fuck that Ian not giving those fucking CEO’s
    Anything moved to Thailand

  5. Last I heard medicare for all from cradle to grave with no cost at the point of service was something the Democrats don't want to do.
    We can't take the Progressive dream peace meal.
    It's got be be done immediately.
    The whole thing.
    Last I heard both the Democrats and the Republicans want nothing to do with this.

  6. Joe will be the President come the end of election night and the Trump nightmare will be over, so you radicals in the Democrat party please be quiet…Joe's got this

  7. The GOP voter is like "Wait if I have sub par insurance that gives my family slim to nothing and odds are I get bumped if I get sick BUT the poor and minorities will have nothing? GREAT sign me up for the GOP plan'

  8. People are worried for their healthcare, but the biggest enemy to healthcare isn’t the Trumpublicans who want to repeal & replace it — the real tougher enemy are the Centrist Corporate Democrat Establishment who would rather a Trump win than a Progressive win!

  9. Farron… healthcare and climate change are the main things to consider. Also, limit the mudslinging. Don't sink down to their level. Talk about a good reason to vote for you…Joe, Beto, Kamala, Bernie. My favorites but Warren is good too.

  10. If its free for all??? Whos going to pay for it. The problem with socalism is you run out of other peoples money to spend.

  11. Though I want Captain America Bernie Sanders as the new 55th president of the United States, I'm curious to see how life would be with our first female Democrat President Elizabeth Warren & first Asian Democrat President Andrew Yang.
    Independence Day Resurgence got me hyped for a female president, than again I want to be fair to Bernie Sanders & Andrew Yang upon voting I wish I could vote those three into the White House like test driving a Tesla you plan on buying.

  12. What kind of health plan do politicians have. I don’t know if they pay for the plan, if they have co-pays, hospital pays for their hospital stays. If they have 100% coverage than all Americans should also have the same coverages.

  13. The right will have a hard time to convince me to use my tax money to give free shit to corporations/health and at the same time take a pay cut, be forced into expensive housing, and to take away my health care unless i'm rich. Who could possible be so professionally retarded to vote against your own interest?

  14. Except they won't focus on healthcare. They will fight over who is the most woke and who hates Trump the most. All the swing voters will roll their eyes and vote for Trump again.

  15. Will just be more empty promises. Yang 2020 and UBI or bust, no one else is even close at making anything new, a brand new future…wake up, the party is about over, stop being slaves…if you can't see that, you are as much slaves as are Trumpanzees…

  16. Unfortunately the corporatist will take bribes from the healthcare industry so we have to get Bernie if we have any hope if fixing our healthcare system.
