Opponents of Medicare for All are usually older and somewhat lacking the empathy for perceived self-interest. Boomer Granny healthcare reality just may change that.
As people start to understand the pilfering nature of our healthcare system especially as one age, only obscene coercion will stop Medicare for All.
A personal experience with my mother-in-law is something that is about to hit babyboomers in droves. If they continue their willful ignorance of losing the little they have been able to accumulate with an overbearing extracting and exploitative plutocracy, they will pay with their poverty and the poverty of those they leave behind. This is no time for ideological fights on Medicare for All.

Young MSNBC reporter excitedly highlights Bernie Sanders’ huge money haul & solid poll numbers.
Bernie Sanders brought in a huge money hall for the 2019 fourth quarter. He has been getting better coverage on MSNBC recently because his success just could not be denied any longer. Their journalistic respect was at risk.
It was clear MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff could barely contain his excitement in reporting about Bernie which was all positive. He made sure to state several times that his reporting was based on polls. So often, these have been disregarded when talking about Bernie.
Bernie showed his prowess as he raised a ton of money in the 4th quarter of 2019. Common Dreams wrote about it.
Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign announced Thursday that it raised a “staggering” $34.5 million from an average donation of just $18.53 in the fourth quarter of 2019, the largest single-quarter fundraising haul of any candidate in the Democratic primary so far.
“Bernie Sanders is closing the year with the most donations of any candidate in history at this point in a presidential campaign,” Faiz Shakir, Sanders’ campaign manager, said in a statement, pointing to the five million individual contributions the senator amassed in 2019.
“He is proving each and every day that working class Americans are ready and willing to fully fund a campaign that stands up for them and takes on the biggest corporations and the wealthy,” said Shakir. “You build a grassroots movement to beat Donald Trump and create a political revolution one $18 donation at a time, and that’s exactly why Bernie is going to win.”
The Sanders campaign said it has raised more than $96 million since launching in February, and 99.9 percent of donors have not maxed out—meaning they can continue to donate.
In the fourth quarter, “teacher” was the most common occupation of Sanders donors and Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, the United States Postal Service, and Target were the most common employers. The Sanders campaign said it received 40,000 new donors on the final day of the fourth quarter, and 300,000 new donors in the fourth quarter overall.
