Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

We flipped the House thanks to Pelsoi who guided all the candidates to run on health care

on the danger of eliminating the ACA and, with a hint about the child temperament in the White House.

Many of these new voters are white suburban women. (Yes, Black women were, are, important but I don't think that they voted for Republican reps earlier).

I have no doubt that these white suburban women like their private health insurance. And if our candidates will talk about eliminating private insurance, we will lose these votes.

Yes, we candeamnd to "stand on principles." I've heard Republicans in California in the 90s claim this until they lost all state offices.

The most important goal is to win the elections and then, once we control both the White House and Congress, we can start playing with the wishful list. Personally, I think that we need to start by tweaking the ACA. There is plenty there.

The way to get to a single payer system - which does allow for private insurance - is to take employers from the business of providing health insurance. Let employers pay employees what was paid on their behalf. Only if most voters have to get their own individual insurance will they be open to a single payer system.

Oh, and by the way, until I joined Medicare, for more than 10 years, in two different stated, I carried an individual policy. Got tired of employers changing carriers, of losing jobs and not be able to be on my spouse's policy, of knowing that employers can and do know about medical conditions of employees and family members.
