[Marxism] Barbara Lee Town Hall Meeting

Liberal icon Congresswoman Barbara Lee held a town hall meeting in Oakland
on Saturday morning (Feb. 18). The focus of the meeting was to “defend and
improve” the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare”.

It seems that this will be the focus of the Democrats as they deal with
Trump and the Republicans. In line with this focus on health dare, some
Democrats in the California State legislature are introducing a bill for
“single payer” health care in California. It is extremely unlikely that
this bill will pass, so what is more likely is that it will be used as a
means of bringing more people into the (liberal Democratic) fold. And even
if it were to pass, as the fate of single payer in Vermont shows, it’s not
possible to introduce single payer in one state along; it has to be on a
national basis. (In any case, what’s really needed is to take profit out of
the health care system entirely – for socialized medicine, in other words!)
