Each debate there's a battle between the moderators and the Democratic moderates to see who can more cynically scare people about "losing their healthcare"


My point is that changing our healthcare system, which is something we desperately need to do, requires changing who gets billed when someone is sick and that has nothing to do with anyone "losing your healthcare" and everyone on that stage knows it

I respect those like Beto or Biden or Klobuchar who want to proceed more incrementally on healthcare but I do *not* like when they use dishonest rhetoric (directly or by implication) to make people think they're going to "lose their healthcare" if we move to Medicare-for-all
