Pelosi does NOT join the Sanders Single Payer movement….

The House Minority Democratic Leader Nanacy Pelosi isn’t running for President…..

So she doesn’t have to pass a litmus test on this….

She isn’t doing Sanders dance that she knows won’t fly….She will have to work to do fixes to the existing Affordable Healthcare program also known as Obamacare….

She has carefully walked around Trump’s basic idea….

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declined to back a single-payer health care bill drafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) , saying she is instead focused on efforts to shield Obamacare from Republican attempts to rescind it.

“Right now, I’m protecting the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi told a small group of reporters in her Capitol office Tuesday. “None of these other things … can really prevail unless we have the Affordable Care Act.”

The House’s top Democrat said she would review the legislation, which Sanders is rolling out to much fanfare on Wednesday.

The single-payer bill has quickly attracted support from a flock of Democratic senators in the mix for the 2020 presidential race, suggesting that it is rapidly becoming a litmus test among the liberal grass roots….

James, The definition of “adjective” is not open to debate. This is stuff you should have learned in grammar school. I am not sure whether you were deliberately trying to irritate with your 1:23pm or whether you genuinely don’t know what an adjective is and just don’t want to take the time to learn its definition. Either way, comments like that won’t get new readers.

I haven’t heard anything back yet, so most likely I won’t be offered the position, but I am not really disappointed. I can’t say I am convinced that I want this position. There appears to be little, if any, job security, and that is increasingly important at my age. Also, I could see a probable personality clash in the future with one of my associates who made rather sarcastic comments about liberals during the interview. That was a little unprofessional on her part given that… Read more »

Well yeah James.

I mean since this is your site and all the articles posted are by you with your commentary,why wouldn’t one offer comments on what you have written

However, if you wish to request I no longer offer comments on what you’ve written ,then the question arises,why do you have a “comments” section at all?

You will often find that James’s headlines and/or commentary on his posts are not supported by the actual information in the body of the article.

Per James’ post, Pelosi did not say she is opposed to single payer, she just said she is not supporting it right now.

My best bet is that she will soon support it.

I was right.

It was good.

I’m not too concerned about the insurance companies James .Im sure they appreciate your worry on their behalf.

Now how about paying your premium this month?

One difference is that insurance companies are spending money to create their own forms and processes, making it more difficult for providers. A single payer system would have that standardized. I am sure that non-insurance employees would under-estimate the cost savings there.

Pay taxes or pay the insurance companies.

Explain the difference James.

Nancy Pelosi seems to be doing exactly what a caucus leader should be doing: gauging the current consensus among her own members before committing to an approach. And since she was Speaker when the ACA passed in 2010, it’s hardly surprising that she doesn’t yet want to let it fail if it can be salvaged, before venturing forward to the next logical alternative: some single-payer initiative. ¶ Remember that saving the current ACA’s solvency is also in the interests of many (e.g. health insurers, HMO’s,… Read more »
