Listen to Bernie on the Joe Rogan podcast. He just won my vote. Great ideas!
The Green New Deal is awesome but long term. Eliminating student debt is big for the Economy but not many poor people have student debt.
M4A would be the #1 resolution with the most immediate impact in the US.
People with chronic conditions, special needs, disabilities, mental health – almost everything under the sun will be unburdened.
We will not be beholden to our jobs. We will be healthier. People will live. Thrive.
Edit: thanks for the gold although it would be better spent on charity.
We all have or will have health concerns in the course of our lives. Not everyone has student debt. M4A will produce the most immediate and widespread reform this country has ever seen.
If I have to die on a hill, it will be for M4A.
That being said, it is vital for us to do the GND as well because we all live on this planet.
What I’m trying to say is M4A will win us the election, so we can go into government to also resolve debt crises and climate crisis, among many other issues.
Because vested interests in health insurance, pharmaceutical companies, media outlets, the Republican Party and way too much of the Democratic Party are engaged in a disinformation and smear campaign against the program.
I am well aware.
I have PPMS (primary progressive multiple sclerosis, it’s the rarest kind, and you don’t even get it to you’re like 30, well show signs) and will most likely eventually need 24-hour care (I’m only 37 right now)
so qualifying for Medicaid is ridiculous. you can’t really have any assets, and your income has to be less than $1,200 a month for 5 years.
most states don’t have any kind of in-home care with Medicare. some states, like Oregon (that I plan to move to eventually) actually do have some programs where you can be on Medicare but qualify for some in-home care from Medicaid.
so Bernie’s medicare-for-all plan would solve that for me. because then I would no longer have to keep my income at a certain level in order to get In-Home Care.
without Medicare for all my future is pretty uncertain and scary. my mom is 67 and does pretty much everything for me, so when she dies I need care, so that’ll that be like 10 to 15 years… optimistically
edit I actually cannot believe how much the voting on this post fluctuates. like if everybody that downvoted, upvoted it’d be like over a hundred. it’s really disheartening to know that there are so many people that disagree with me, and essentially want me to die.
We don’t talk enough about the gaps in health insurance
I don’t understand how someone could actually like their insurance and if they did, they surely aren’t able to keep it if their employer changes policies. My employer changed 3 times in 7 years, I didn’t get to decide anything.
