1. K&R, Peggy.

I wonder if we will be able to do any of this.

2. I think we're more likely to do a good bit of this than we are to...

implement Medicare for all or spend $16 trillion to address the climate crisis.

We 100% SHOULD have a single-payer health care system and spend $16 trillion on the climate crisis - but it is unlikely.

No matter who gets elected - it is our responsibility to push and prod and demand and protest to MOVE on all of the issues that will otherwise get stalled in Congress if we wait until a future election cycle,

3. What is gratifying to me right now

is happening on the state level in Illinois.

We have one of the most progressive governors in the country, and he has a Democratic super majority. Our governor is a billionaire, so they are not all bad.

GOTV people. See what Democratic leadership can accomplish in states like California and Illinois.
