      The truth is that the crises we face in this nation are enormous, and we have got to think big, not small. What history has told us is that two years after President Clinton won in 1992, Republicans did phenomenally well. And the reason they did so well was because Democrats had the power, and they did not exercise that power to help working families. We cannot make that mistake again, which is why it is imperative that we come together around a bold, progressive agenda. We must join every other major country on earth and grant health care to all of our people as a basic human right. We must take on the incredible greed of the pharmaceutical industry and not force the American people to pay higher prescription drug prices than everyone else. We must raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15 an hour and guarantee equal pay for equal work. We must combat systemic racism and pass comprehensive immigration reform. We must make public colleges and universities tuition-free and forgive student debt. We must create millions of jobs by rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure and confronting the climate crisis. This agenda is not some kind of wild, radical idea. It’s what the American people want, and it’s where the Democratic Party has got to go.

      We have made tremendous progress in recent years in our efforts to transform this country, but it is a fight that is far from over.

      It’s so far gone, that we need a 3rd party to force this.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      But “centrist” Democrats and Republicans would have you believe not for profit universal health care is the craziest thing in the world.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".
