S1E32 - Medicare4All and why our reps should hold their vote for Pelosi being Speaker.

Why they should hold their vote and what YOU can do!

Episode Notes

Medicare4All and why we should get our reps to hold their vote for Pelosi being Speaker. Let me start with this will NOT risk a Republican being Speaker, if Pelosi doesn't get enough votes it goes to committee and she and others can run, so this is win/win/win,there is no downside. The Dems aren't even allowed to vote on it due to Pelosi withholding their ability to even vote on it. 70% of us want it, why is she blocking a vote?

70% of the whole country, close to 90% of Dem voters. So right now it's both parties that are the problem. IF they vote on it we can see who should be voted out both House and Senate. But right now the first block is Dems, not Repubs. If they claim they are for it they need to prove it. Dems first talked of a National Health Plan in 1946. The UK implemented a National Health Plan in 1947. 3 generations ago. Three Generations Ago. If the Dems support it they need to vote on it and prove it, then they can use that as leverage to either force Repubs to vote for it OR use it to show Repubs should be all voted out in the midterms. It's win/win/win for the people, but bad for their corporate doners. Who do they serve? Us or the corporations? My life, your life, 330,000,000 lives or a few suits that are swimming in money? The majority wants it, there's the bill, vote on it.

Let me add in, while Jimmy Dore is the one that mainly has brought this to the front and set it into motion, as he said and should be obvious, this is not about him, liking or hating him and his delivery is NOT part of the issue, it's about the health and life of 330+ MILLION people, so please, let's keep the focus and not get sidelined.

Also, there are obviously many videos, articles and so forth, one I would recommend is by a guy that goes by the shortened version of his last name Orfala so you can just look up Orf on youtube and can also search Orf Rukus, he made a short clip of AOC making the exact point she now is opposing.

But please, don't fall into sidelined debates where this issue is distorted and identity politics can it's citizens with some form of Med4All, it is actually cheaper than the system we have now by getting rid of the useless parasitic leaches known as private insurance, by stopping the gouging by the pharmaceutical industry and cutting overhead, and it covers us all saving lives and money all at once.

I could go on about the betrayal of the people by both the Democrats and Republicans, I could list stats on the millions of people dropping into poverty and the needless suffering and early death that accompanies poverty. I could state the disgusting numbers associated with both parties serving their big corporate doners and ignoring our LIVES out here. I could go on about there never being a better time to demand Med4All, but in the interest of keeping the focus I'll skip all that and just hope that you understand the importance of speaking up NOW and demanding Pelosi let the will of the people be paid attention to and a floor vote in Congress (A RECORDED VOTE, NOT A VOICE VOTE) be done on Med4All.

Thousands and thousands of people dying and millions suffering is intolerable and MUST change!

PLEASE call your reps and the reps listed below. Just leave a short voicemail, it won't take long.

Demand they NOT vote for Pelosi unless she lets a vote for Med4All happen AND HAVE IT AS A RECORDED VOTE, NOT VOICE! And again, this will NOT risk a Republican being Speaker, if Pelosi doesn't get enough votes it goes to committee and she and others can run, so this is win/win/win, there is no downside.
