Some BMG members have been arguing for some time that there is no fundamental difference between Democrats and Republicans. This action provides powerful evidence in support of that depressingly cynical assertion.
The “Medicare For All” debate has dominated whatever airtime the Democratic primary race has received (the apparently pointless impeachment exercise has pushed everything else off the radar). Our candidates — all of them — are lying when they talk about the ACA or anything to replace it.
The legacy of the Barack Obama administration is that failed to accomplish ANY constructive long-term changes. Even our own elected members of the House have caved, even as they perform in the off-Broadway impeachment show.
I think I’ve finally had enough. I’ve given up trying to watch the news, my wife and I entertain ourselves with “Miss Marple” episodes instead.
It’s over, folks. The American experiment in democracy has ended after a 250-odd year run.
