Thank you Bernie for getting the response on record that anyone who wants the vaccine should be able to get it regard of income!
We definitely have invested enough in the process to deserve that – and despite administrative heads in the sand, infectious diseases don’t disappear from communities if only the wealthy are protected!!!
This is why so many people love Bernie—a politician you can believe in.
“Free at the point of service is not free” But since we’ve already spent billions where is the accountability in Bernie’s plan?
Many sane individuals have no desire to receive a hurriedly developed vaccine
The question that should be asked of T-Rump on every possible occasion is that which “patriotic” American fascists asked of everyone who did not enthusiastically support their blood lust in the weeks following the events of September, 2001: “WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA SO MUCH?”
I still have my “Not In Our Name” posters, from a short-lived movement begun by families of the survivors.
Health officials might agree but the capitalists, Big Pharma and the Senate will not.
Why did this take so long? Mouthbreather needed this in the face months ago. Masks were ALLOWED to become a political weapon that has KILLED many thousands and many more to come.
Yes. As economists frame it: TANSTAAFL (There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch), meaning that there are always “somebodies” who are paying for the lunch. Their point–which they state and immediately ignore–is that the money exchanged for the lunch is not its true cost, which is the total of all of the resources of all kinds that have been consumed in the making of the lunch.
Ironically, “mainstream” economics simultaneously insists that the money price of anything–“How much’ll ya gimme for it?”–is the one and only true measure of value. One more example of why that discipline deserves to be seriously disciplined.
Question: What specifically do you see as needing and lacking accountability, and what entity or entities are to be held accountable for it?
Biden And The Democratic Establishment Will Not Fight For Medicare-For-All For The People.
The GOP And Trump Are Fighting To Kill Many Of Us By Denying Us Any Healthcare.
“The Hawkins Healthcare Plan With The Green Party Will Cover Everyone Birth To Death.”
Is There Really Any Question Who America Needs?
Excellent comment and so true.
Answer: Accountability is the consequences for taking an action, in this case it involves several actions across multiple medical settings. (a huge undertaking) The idea that HR 1384 simply expands and improves Medicare doesn’t correlate with the text of the bill tasked with establishing a single payer system. Accountability would include the claims made about what it does and no one seems to be able to grasp that as a problem. (well almost no one) I think this comes from years of never asking questions about healthcare or costs. There are people that know but they are not vested in sharing that information. I’m short on time right now or I would give some examples. I think my biggest complaint is all the propaganda and half-truths being written. Ugh.
We’re not going to have a choice. It’ll be forced on us, despite not working. They’re already signalling that they’ll take anything:
“FDA TO ASK FOR VACCINE TO BE 50% MORE EFFECTIVE VS. PLACEBO:”
The Chinese have gone as far as using their whole military for what is effectively a clinical trial:
And then there’s going to be mass tracking, too:
“2022: A Vaccination Passport. The EU Keeps Quiet Over Suspicious Documents”
“Mass-Tracking COVI-PASS Immunity Passports Slated to Roll Out in 15 Countries”
It’s not being widely reported, but this thing has aspects that act like AIDS:
There are good reasons why we have been unable to design a vaccine for HIV. We probably won’t get one for this, either. We don’t even have a vaccine for standard coronaviruses. They tried, but they ended up with damaged or dead animals (and people) because of what’s known as “paradoxical immune enhancement.” Look up what happened with the vaccine for respiratory syncytial virus. Same thing happened when they tried to make a vaccine for coronaviruses.
They’re going to make some shit, slap dash and poorly tested, and then their buddies in government will force it on us in what’s effectively a clinical trial. But who cares, they’ll be making bank.
