Single payer advocates need to state repeatedly: We will not support the same process that got us RomneyCare.
Start strong, instead of pre-compromising.
Form a coalition who won’t back down, instead of capitulating like the lily-livered Progressive Caucus did.
Stand up to r-party horseshit about supposed death panels by directly calling them lying liars.
Never stray from a “better and truly universal coverage with lower costs” message.
And call out the sell outs in the d-party for being the corporate sock puppets they are.
In the end, we might not get a bill. But we’ll know who gives a damn about actual voters --and who we can persuade to form that leftie alternative to the obviously unreformable d-party.
