John Delaney is a Democrat running for president.
Sunday, he spoke at the California Democrat Convention and dared to suggest a less extreme path for his party, which led to him being booed relentlessly.

What was his offense?
Suggesting that Medicare for All might possibly be a ridiculous and unfeasible proposal.
Democrat John Delaney:
“Medicare for all may sound good but it’s actually not good policy nor is it good politics”
“It shouldn’t be a kind of healthcare that kicks 150 million Americans off their healthcare”
“This is called the battle of ideas my friends”

He’s literally just said he’s for universal healthcare.

To drive home his point, he even followed it up with a tweet afterward.
Our goal should be everyone getting healthcare as a right. That goal is achievable. If we make the goal the elimination of private insurance (b/c some people don't like it) then we give 150 Million Americans a reason not to vote for us, we lose every election, & Rs gut the ACA.

The exact same thing happened to former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on Saturday when he dared to suggest that socialism is not the answer.
