So, I've been reading a lot of commentaries saying "Y'all Dems better not pursue Medicare for all or you'll lose the moderate votes". Look, Not that I am particularly fond of medicare for all, but the logic from the supporters is not that hard to understand:
a) There are countries that have universal healthcare and it seems working. 1/


b) Obama administration forfeited public option to get support for the ACA, it got attacked, became a political liability and caused Dems two elections, and got repealed anyway.

c) Clinton had a relatively moderate platform. It's not like she won the presidency. d) And look like what happened to the moderates on the right like Kasich. So tell me, why should someone on the left trust this time would be different?
