Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the US Empire will NEVER have universal healthcare - the corporations that control the government will never allow it.
Best you can hope for is that some members of the “democratic” party will be allowed to feign support publicly (which is what this article is really about). The healthcare industry will tolerate this, knowing fully that it will NEVER happen. If it ever got close, they would simply kill it from the top, as they did in California a few years ago. You all remember what happened with public healthcare in California, or is that down the memory hole?
However, before it ever got that far on a national level, I suspect the ruling class would simply put out some doctored polls opposing it (to convince the sheeple), then rig the electronic voting machines to match the BS polls. This is how “democracy” works in the US Empire.
So don’t think we’re going to vote our way to change - as it’s not possible to fix a fake democracy by voting in a rigged election. You should have learned this from 2018, 2016, 2014…
When the REAL revolution comes - assuming we win and we don’t all end up in camps, which is a BIG if - maybe then we can have universal healthcare, and an end to Empire, and public college, and all that other stuff that every other developed country on the planet that isn’t an Empire managed by Corporations has… maybe…
Personally, I’m not optimistic. If you want healthcare, you should probably just move to a country that has it… if you can.
Sorry for the reality check.
