Millionaire Pelosi Repeats Insurance Co Lies on Medicare for All
by Register Peace & Freedom or Green

The outrage of robot voting in San Francisco for the Democratic incumbent when it is not possible for a Republican to win is brought home with the re-election of 79 year old millionaire Democrat Rep Nancy Pelosi, who again repeats the insurance company lies about Medicare for All, HR 1384.
See “Pelosi Accused of Deploying 'Most Dishonest Argument' Against Medicare for All” by Jake Johnson, 4/5/19 at
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/04/05/pelosi-accused-deploying-most-dishonest-argument-against-medicare-all.

For more on HR 1384, see https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1384/cosponsors?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22HR+1384%22%5D%7D&r=1&s=1
It currently has 107 co-sponsors; it needs 218. The Democrats are the majority in the House of Representatives with 235 Democrats out of 435 members of the House (also known as Congress).

According to the above Common Dreams article, her latest legislation is to give more of our tax dollars to insurance companies under the “Affordable” Car Act, which still allows for lots of personal bankruptcies due to inability to pay medical bills and for those who cannot afford the high deductibles, the entire Affordable Care Act is a farce.

The anti-HR1384 Medicare for All Democrats whine that it costs too much, ignoring the facts that (1) life is priceless and (2) they join with the Republicans in giving $1 trillion a year of our tax dollars to the war machine to maximize the profits of the oil companies and the munitions makers, the only reason the military exists.

The United States has the highest infant mortality and lowest life expectancy in the industrialized world, and life expectancy has been declining since 2014, when Democrat Obama was president. It is a sign of profound backwardness and a very weak labor movement when we see who has socialized medicine, as follows:

All of Europe, Israel, Rwanda, Cuba, Canada, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, China, Taiwan, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand.

San Francisco millionaire Rep. Nancy Pelosi not only opposes Medicare for All, she opposes the Green New Deal, supports the US military base known as Zionist Israel and supports Trump’s anti-communist hysteria and sanctions against Venezuela and Cuba. So long as such a reactionary congressperson as Nancy Pelosi is re-elected to represent San Francisco, no one in San Francisco can claim that there is anything progressive about San Francisco.

If you want socialized medicine as exists in the rest of the industrialized world, and some of the non-industrialized world, such as Rwanda, your best vote is for the 2 parties that support socialized medicine, at the very least HR1384, namely Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party, which also support the Green New Deal and oppose sanctions against Venezuela and Cuba in particular and oppose the war machine in general, of which Zionist Israel is a part.
