CNNisTrash It’s not just about their health insurance! Single payer health care would have to constrain wages also! The reimbursement rates for “providers” doesn’t just mean the doctors! It means for the entity that provides the care. It affects everyone! Nurses, clerical, maintenance etc! No this is not a conflict. M4A will allow unions to help workers on other issues like *gasp* higher wages.
Bernie’s so correct.Every civilized democracy gives its citizens health coverage as a right. This has been haggled over for one hundred years in the US. We need to cut to the chase and do it. Big pharma and Ins companies squeeze Americans to death. It has to end. And he still leading the polls.. please CNN,MSNBC and the rest of the hater media you guys are bullies your not letting Bernie fight one on one.. let the candidates fight him, not you media bullies, y’all scared to go one on one
the way he uses his hands and moves his head he could pass as richard nixons twin watch him. As liberal viewers flocked to NBC and MSNBC for the debate, there weren’t many left for CNN, which averaged a dismal 569,000 viewers from 9-11 p.m. ET. This is bullshit. Medicare4All *is* pro-labor. Imagine how much easier union negotiations would be if they didn’t have to ask for comprehensive medical plans and could focus on good wages, working conditions and other LABOR-related issues?
Bernie has triple the union endorsement than everyone else combined! All members in the Culinary Union thinking they have no medical worries! Do they ever stop & think where their medical insurance is if they get fired or laid off ? In the blink of an eye, it can happen in our economy that you get laid off! Bernie would still have you covered!
Unions do not have to worry. Zero chance Medicare for All ever gets enacted. Breaking: Polls show Biden at 5% in Nevada. LOL Ya think? LOL

Nevada caucuses: Medicare for All could slow Bernie Sanders' momentumHe should promote a public option--no dismantling of the private system. Disagree. Many feel trapped by the only industry that will give them benefits. Can’t wait to get out MedicareForAll pitchforks into Bloomberg’s little hiney. He can ask Delaney how it feels.
Nevada service workers union backs Medicare for all'It’s time for everyone in America to have access to quality, affordable healthcare.' — Grace Vergara-Mactal, executive director of Nevada’s SEIU Local 1107 union, on the union’s stance on Medicare for All. If you want health care get a job and PAY FOR IT!!! 😡 Agreed, but no need to take away private insurance from people that want to keep it. If for decades the government can’t handle the VA, how can they handle 300 million people? They can’t.

Candidates Turn on Sanders Over Culinary Union, Medicare for AllWarren, Sanders and Buttigieg sparred over the behavior of Sanders's supporters; Sanders acknowledged some people online who make 'ugly remarks' but said, 'I disown those people; they are not part of our movement.' Don’t forget the one who picked up a rifle and shot Republican Congressman If they all fight with each other it just feeds the current beast to win..... DemDebate none of these democrats are strong enough..so sad Ok I guess he just lost half his followers.
Bernie Sanders splits from AOC and says Medicare for All is 'already a compromise' | Markets InsiderSanders split with AOC at a CNN town hall on Tuesday night, saying his signature Medicare for All plan was already a compromise. AOC said last w... Here comes the bullshit. Doctors don't take medicaid and care at some offices anymore because insurance companies haven't paid their dues to doctors under these insurance users. LBJ administration wasn't it LDS church?!?! So Utah owes the country money somewhere))) 'Split' is not a synonym for 'disagrees with.'
Bernie Sanders leads in all 10 national polls released this week ahead of Nevada caucuses10 polls released since Monday show Sanders as the Democratic frontrunner, with the senator's percentage of supporters ranging from the mid 20s to early 30s. Republicans lie when they say government can’t treat American workers as good as European governments. Same polls that had Hillary skating into the WH backwards. I tried to warn you then, you are counting on a Demographic that wil not deliver on Election Day. The ‘Reagan Democrat’. BS is not going to be President ever in this lifetime!
