So it looks like the 2020 presidential race is shaping up to be Donald Trump, who didn’t resign and wasn’t impeached, vs. Sen. Kamala Harris, who’ll try to demonstrate that the reason Hillary lost (besides the Russians) was that she was just too much of a centrist.
When putting together those campaign ads, wouldn’t it be great if Harris could count among her accomplishments that she co-sponsored the Medicare for All bill that would become the law of the land once the Dems took back Congress and the Senate in that astounding 2018 sweep?
Kamala Harris in Oakland: "I support Medicare for all" … "momentum" for single payer health care. "I've always supported the concept."

There you go.
I intend to co-sponsor the Medicare for All bill because it’s just the right thing to do.

Show me how you are going to pay for it.
I'll wait. https://t.co/AhAkahYTw7

Forget about paying for it … it’s the right thing to do.

The upside to Medicare for All is that in 25 years the medical services industry would control all politics, thus saving us the hassle. https://t.co/gUCT63M0kz

Gonna take a shot in the dark here and say she's not just doing it "because it’s just the right thing to do." https://t.co/kc7Xa1Ctc1

Someone is definitely planning on running for president. And not coming thru on any promises like this. https://t.co/1SCeJT4wLy

So when the rubber hits the road, it’s not going to be about Russia, or North Korea, or Iran, or climate change … it’s health care. Hooray for “free stuff!”
I see Kamala has been talkng to those 7 year olds again. https://t.co/xeeg8N4H98
