Even Dems who arenít co-sponsoring Bernieís Single-Payer plan want Single Payer
Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/13/2017 7:12:29 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

They can get you now, or get you later . . .

Fifteen senators, including 2020 hopefuls like Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, are co-sponsoring Bernie Sanders’ single-payer health care bill. But even some of those not signing on have plans to eventually convert the country to single payer.

On today’s Morning Joe, Dem Senator Chris Murphy [CT] described his plan, which Politico has called “stealthy single-payer.” Under it, people would be given the option of buying into Medicare or remaining with private insurance. Murphy expressed the belief that:

“Given that choice, consumers would choose Medicare, and it would allow for almost a more natural transitioning to a single-payer system.”

Kamala Harris was born to two foreign nationals, she is not a natural born citizen.

Bernie’s home state of Vermont, a small, liberal ‘paradise’, tried to pass single-payer. It failed. But Dems, true to form, respond to failure by trying to do even more of what failed.

That was the original plan for Medicare.
Start with people over 65, and then just start gradually
scaling back the eligibility age until you squeeze out the private insurers one bologna slice at a time.

It's OK with them because they won't have to wait in line with the unwashed for their medical care. Require them to do so and see how quicly they change their tune!

If the Republicans won’t keep their promise to end Obamacare and then get pharmaceutical, insurance, and other deep-pocket donors in line, the only answer is single payer.

Could an expert on Medicare please explain just what they’re asking for?
You’ll still need supplemental insurance. Medicare will not approve ALL procedures. etc.
Careful what you wish for, you just might get it. BOHICA

To an Indian national and a Jamaican national.
If her parent(s) had returned to either country when she was a child she would not be an American at all.

Kamala Harris was born to two foreign nationals, she is not a natural born citizen.

So if she gets elected in 2020 or 2024 then we can look forward to four or eight more years of birther threads? Oh goodie!

There’s good reason to not want foreign nationals in the Presidency, and your falling for the “othering” and derision of people who want to follow the constitution and keep natural born citizens in that office is very telling.

“Birtherism” is the greatest Alinsky ever perpetrated.

They have gotten the American people to reject one of the most valuable safeguards bequeathed to us by the founders.
The natural born citizen clause served us well until we ignored it.
Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama should be proof enough of the wisdom of the founders when they tried to prevent him from being President by requiring someone who could only be a US citizen and nothing else.
Born here of citizen parents.
Naturally a US citizen because there is no other possibility.
One cannot be anything else and also be a natural born citizen.

It does not matter if he was born in Hawaii if his father was a foreign national.
Children of foreign nationals inherit the nationality of their foreign national parent(s).
Natural born citizen means born here of citizen parents.
No other possible citizenship(s).
Only when one cannot be anything else can one be a natural born citizen.

No foreign birth.
No foreign parent(s)
No foreign citizenship(s)
No foreign influence on the Presidency is what John Jay stated in a letter to George Washington as the reason for insisting on a natural born citizen.

Obama told us he was born a British subject.

Who believes Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Jay, Monroe, Madison, etc. would have found him to be a natural born citizen?

Who believes they would have thought the recently deceased King of Thailand was eligible to be President?
He was born in Cambridge MA.

Usurpation Day, January 20, 2009, happened with the complete cooperation of both parties.
They want the Constitution changed without the hassle of amending the Constitution.
Confuse people about the clear meaning of a three word phrase and voila, every anchor baby and Winston Churchill is eligible.

The bench was the reason the GOP went along with the fig leaf resolution for McCain that was used by the Democrats as cover for Obama.
Jindal, Rubio, Haley, George P. Bush and Cruz were all up and comers and the future of the party and ineligible.

The truth of the Kenyanesian Usurpation will never see the light of day because both parties cooperated in the violation of the Constitution

Only leftists who don’t respect the Constitution use terms like “birther”.

She was born here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So was the last King of Thailand.
Do you think he was eligible to be President?
Do you think Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Jay, Mason, Madison, etc. would have thought the King of Thailand was a natural born citizen of the US?

No because even under Medicare you have to pay for health care and people don’t want to pay for health care. That’s the whole point of FREE health care.

These people have car and cell phone payments. They don’t want to waste money on health care.
