'Not a Big Fan of Medicare for All': Pelosi Attacks Plan Backed by Leading 2020 Democrats, Majority of Party

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/11/01/not-big-fan-medicare-all-pelosi-attacks-plan-backed-leading-2020-democrats-majority

"…she is “not a big fan of Medicare for All”.

At this point she needs to be asked VERY STRONGLY: WHY NOT?!

100:1 She does NOT say: "BECAUSE MY DONORS/OWNERS DON’T WANT ME TO BE.

She, and all the other old “career-owned” sellouts need TO GO!

This should not come as a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention.
Progressive change will never come from the democratic party.
Progressive change will never occur as long as capitalism lives and breathes.
Medicare for all will remain a pipe dream until capitalism is dead and buried.

Nancy isn’t a fan of what the American people want and need.
She’s a fan of corporate health insurance donors.
She’s a fan of medical care bankruptcies, health insurance company death panels, and millions of uninsured.
Pelosi isn’t anywhere near as anti-democracy and corrupt as Trump and McConman, but she’s still a sold-out corporate elitist hack, and she needs to be purged along with Hoyer, Manchin, Cloudybootyjar, and the other “centrist” sellouts.

You are so right. Another fossilized corporate tool who is woefully anti-progressive, and yet, the sheeple keep electing her.

The further along we go in the political season, as support for the corpate candidates (Biden, Harris, Pete) dwindles and the more support that is garnered by those pie in the sky liberals Sanders and Warren, the closer we will get to a reckoning. Just like in 1968, the Democratic Party is at a crossroads. In ‘68, they chose the wrong direction, alienated the youth vote, and nearly destroyed their party, being saved only by watergate.
Will they choose wrong again? If Nancy has anything to say about it, Yes.

Her goddamn job as speaker is to represent the majority of America that overwhelmingly supports not-for-profit universal single-payer insurance! - not just her constituents, not her campaign-contributor bribers, not the for-profit health care insurance parasites, or corporate greed and profits, but the people of our republic that are being used by the for obscene profit health-care scam! If she wants to spout her personal sabotage rubbish, the she should quit the speakers platform and give it to someone who actually gives a damn!!!

Her “not being a big fan of MFA” means nothing except to prove she is NOT representing the people, but the profiteers! Pelosi is a weak, corrupt, shallow, business-as-usual DINO center-right sellout and must be removed if we are to make any real progress on reform or any of the other critical issues confronting us at this moment - impeachment, climate change and other critical environmental crises, winning the Congress and presidency in 2020 are a few of the issues that leap immediately to mind - NO, Pelosi is NOT the one to lead, never was, she only fakes it, and poorly at that!!

Either completely clueless regarding the current tide of history, or determined to lose again.These entrenched corporate-centric hacks, blinded by their greed and personal ambition, all need to go.

She’s like Dorian Gray with the portrait on full public display.

We are not big fans of Pelosi either. Time for her to go and she can take the for profit medical insurance with her when she leaves.

She’ll soon be replaced by that renowned socialist Adam Schiff.

Quite appropriate for Speaker Pelosi to announce her opinion on M4A on Dia de la Muertos. Since we know 40-60,000+ Americans die needlessly every year under our current medical delivery system. And hundreds of thousands more suffer from untreated illness, aches and pains, medical bankruptcy, etc. Just so a few 1%ers and corporations don’t have to sit on a rocking yacht on their way to eternity.
Oh wait, the Corporatocracy are persons, too. In fact, they are more real than the people who die on America’s streets every day. Mostly because people like Speaker Pelosi function as emergency scaffolding, propping up a corrupt and decrepit old status quo infrastructure.
Speaker Pelosi, quit with the old framework and jerryrigging, please. We’re tired of seeing falling objects and human detritus piling up on our byways, casualties of your love of money and political cowardice.
Vaya con dios for real, Speaker Pelosi.

one of the damn dems biggest corporate money raisers - is it any wonder she does not like something that would benefit the majority of us and not her greedy friends in big biz, wall street, etc. When are my fellow citizens in CALIFORNIA going to vote her out of office. She has done mostly nothing but shill for corporate Amerika. ugly. her New Deal father must be turning over in his grave in Baltimore. sickening person. get out of the way pelosi and let the real new democrats lead the way to a fresh start for us all.

Just more subtle about it, I think, Shelby. Of course, nowadays, the pricks don’t even try to be subtle about it, do they?

Oh BULLSHIT! Screw capitalism, and let’s work to kill it, but how do all those dozens of other capitalist countries that have medicare for all do it?

Your “black-and-white” thinking is just a form of defeatism.
