Omar is right to point out that Delaney is not entitled to a debate with anyone.

Neither is shiattly little ben shapiro. No does, in fact, mean no.

I agree.  Men seem to think that because they demand our attention, they are entitled to it.  AOC has made a point of calling them out on that shiat.  Omar is backing her up.

I just hope that we do get to have an open debate about it because I'm sick of shoveling money to the insurance industry and getting "we're not covering that until you hit your $5000 deductible." in return and would love to get a better system of universal health care that is based on more than bumper sticker political slogans.

Who said he was entitled to one? He requested one, which he's allowed to do, just like AOC is allowed to decline. The purpose of the primaries is supposed to be to discuss these issues and figure out where the party is going.

I like her and think we need more AOCs in congress. But she's not always right. There was a video of her yesterday going at it with a guy from the FBI asking why white mass shooters weren't prosecuted as terrorists when the Orlando and San Bernardino shooters were.

It's was a great point. Why are muslims considered terrorists but white right-wingers aren't? However, her example was fatally flawed because both the San Bernadino and Orlando shooters each specifically mentioned ISIS which allowed them to be prosecuted under existing terrorism laws. The twitter video cut off before the FBI guy raised that point so it gave the appearance that AOC dunked on him when actually it was the other way around.

that being said, i hope she keeps it up. We need her and more like her in Congress.

Medicare sucks.  Giving it to everyone is criminal.  It should be criminal to give the elderly suck shiat insurance too.
 
2019-06-06 4:51:32 PM  
Delaney wants universal health care, but not medicare for all.  Which means he still wants insurance companies involved, and a plan for fed money to go to them instead of directly to healthcare providers and patients.  So, he's been bought by Cigna, United, Anthem, et. al.  Check his past campaign donations, is he on a Board of Directors, cushy sinecure after he left office?

"In the Medicare-for-all bill, it makes private insurance illegal. And there are 150 million Americans who have private insurance and most of them like it," he said.

Republican-like talking points detected. It's not that people like their current insurance, it's that that BernieCare would make private insurance all but illegal. Even in Britain you can buy private insurance above and beyond the NHS safety net. This seems...odd.

How I see it playing out
Biden gets the nomination because he has name recognition, the corporate Democrats like him and the people who are always chasing White working class voters are sure he will draw Trump voters.

Biden runs a lackluster campaign in which he points out he isn't Trump and talks about bipartisanship and reaching across the aisle, and asks America don't you want to go back to 2008

The Trump campaign reminds voters Biden was VP to that Muslim Socialist Obama ensuring he gets no Trump voters. Trump campaign with no irony points out Biden's touchy problem and calls the Democrats hypocrites for talking about Trump and women.

The Trump campaign and/or the Russians do a focused social media campaign to decrease voter turn out by the Dems.
Points will be Biden's comments about busing aimed at African Americans.
Biden's treatment of Anita Hill directed at women and specifically African-American women.
Biden's close ties with credit card companies and making bankruptcy harder to declare
Biden's history of plagiarism

Biden's attempt to explain away why he does and does not support the Hyde amendment doesn't draw in Pro Life voters like he thinks it will.

"In the Medicare-for-all bill, it makes private insurance illegal. And there are 150 million Americans who have private insurance and most of them like it," he said.

I have private insurance through my wife's employer and while it isn't terrible I would still rather have UHC. For example, because of networks, we can't go to the Hospital ER just a few minutes from our house. Instead, we have to go to one that is a 20 minute drive. Actually, we could go to the closer one but it would be out of network and thus cost us a lot more. And can I go to the neurologist that is 10 minutes away and I was originally referred to by my PCP? Of course not, because of networks again. I have to go to a neurologist who is 25 minutes away.

And of course my wife's employer changed plans at the beginning of this year and some of the doctor's we are seeing who were previously in network are now out of network, so we can continue seeing them but at an added cost. And so we've already found a few replacement doctors who are in network but I'm guessing we'll have to go through the same thing again when her employer decides to change plans again in a few years.

So I like my current insurance when it works but there are quite a few inconveniences I could do without. And I absolutely hate that they can pretty much dictate which doctors we can see and make us change after being with a doctor for years. UHC can't come soon enough for me.

Oh, I agree.  AOC has every right to say "No" to a debate, and no one as any entitlement to have one with her.  But the public also has the right to say "If you don't have a debate in public and answer questions, we won't vote for you".  I'd love to hear her answer real, pointed questions about her plan and her ideas, as I would like to hear every candidate's plan and ideas.  I'm sick to death of candidates saying "MEDICARE FOR ALL" with no plan, or "REPEAL AND REPLACE" with no plan...   We need serious people with serious answers to serious problems, answers that have been thought through beyond what they think will get votes.  Let's hear it.

I'm pretty sure that I've seen Fark jump all over people they don't approve of because those people wouldn't debate someone who called them out. So we only get to ask for public debates when we don't like the person in question?
