Do you guys remember the “underpants gnomes” episode of South Park? If not, the quick and dirty summary is the boys discover that gnomes have been stealing underwear from the people in the town as part of their business scheme. And when they meet the gnomes to discover the secret of the business acumen, the underpants thieves present them with this presentation on how to make money.
Phase 1: Collect underpants; Phase 2: ?; Phase 3: Profit.
Here’s the clip:
Anyway, that tweet from Rep. Ilhan Omar reminded us of the underpants gnomes and their business plan.
Phase 1: Impeach Trump; Phase 2: ?; Phase 3: Guarantee everyone — including the 4.1 million children without insurance — quality healthcare”:
1️⃣ Impeach Trump.
2️⃣ Pass Medicare for All.
3️⃣ Guarantee everyone — including the 4.1 million children without insurance — quality healthcare. https://t.co/Cs0oXHoVK1

She left out everything that has to happen between her steps 1 and 2, let alone the fact that Cocaine Mitch controls the Senate. Or the fact that Dem Sen. Joe Manchin is a firm no on MfA (and a new on Bernie as the nominee):
Democrat Joe Manchin says Bernie Sanders agenda on healthcare "doesn’t make sense at all" & he "absolutely will not” support it. Asked who he’d vote for if it’s Bernie vs. Trump in 2020 he says "it wouldn’t be Bernie" & "I’d do what’s best for my country."pic.twitter.com/wwoNlun3vm
