Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) says it’s time for Democrats to run on single-payer health care across the country.

President Barack Obama “tried to move us forward with health care coverage by using a conservative model that came from one of the conservative think tanks that had been advanced by a Republican governor in Massachusetts,” Warren, referring to Mitt Romney, said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Tuesday.

“Now it’s time for the next step. And the next step is single payer,” she said.

The ACA will eventually implode because the prices are way too high for people.

When it does fail, Democrats need to be ready.  People will want answers and single-payer can drive costs down and provide access without outrageous premiums.

When the Republicans are twiddling their thumbs and Trump is tweeting, Democrats should have this credible (long overdue) plan ready to go and be vocal about it.

In her Journal interview, Warren called on Democrats to ditch half-measures and commit to progressive policies that they believe in.

“It’s not like we’re trying to sell stuff that people don’t want. … It’s not that at all,” she said. “It’s that we haven’t gotten up there and been as clear about our values as we should be, or as clear and concrete about how we’re going to get there.”

Embrace progressive values… what a concept!

Government can negotiate better deals for taxpayers and we can end the absurdity of “chargemasters” and other rackets like paying $83,000 for a $100 treatment for a scorpion sting!

2020 can be won by a Progressive who stands up to corporations and vocalizes defends Progressive values.
