    Ways and Means Committee Chair Doesn’t Want Medicare for All Hearing to Mention “Medicare for All”

    Rep. Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat who has been in office since 1989, told the Democrats on the panel that he didn’t want the phrase “Medicare for All” to be used. Instead, he said, the hearing should focus on all the different ways to achieve “universal health care” or “universal health coverage,” which he said was a better term to deploy. Medicare for All, he argued, was wrong on policy and is a political loser, sources present for the meeting, held last Wednesday, told The Intercept.

    • From the perspective of getting doctors on-board he may have a point. We need to address the common complaints about Medicare if we want something called "Medicare for all". I frankly think expanding access to the Medicare system is the easiest route, but we have to sell it as stable, efficient, and accessible, and we have to address reimbursement levels vs things like doctors' debts.

    Anyone know when the Recall Sullivan group has to file financial reports with the Secretary of State?  It should make for interesting reading.

    Michael Flynn has himself a new attorney, and I dare say we haven't seen wingnut lawyerin' of this quality since lawyer/dentist Orly Taitz was working diligently to get Obama booted from office for want of natural born citizenship.
