18. The healthcare landscape has changed dramatically and Bernie is stuck in 1968

 

He refuses to countenance any of the regulations brought into play by the ACA and acts like it never happened. When was the last time you heard him promised to protect it? Medicare for all is a lousy idea based on the current Medicare system which is surprise, an insurance program like the ACA. But we already have the ACA so Medicare for All is not only a pale shadow of an in-place system but does damage by reducing support for it. So no, his ideas are not very good, and by my lights they are pernicious and destructive of hard-won Democratic gains.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
