    But once the arena shifts away from the campaign trail to Congress, where the proposal would have to pass via a narrow margin in the Senate and despite fierce opposition from well-funded industry groups, Biden’s plan would become a daunting challenge to enact.

    Surveying this landscape, some Democratic congressional aides and outside health care advisers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said they expected the party would start next year with a more modest package of fixes to ObamaCare that did not include a public option in an effort to get some early points on the board.

    In fact, House Democrats already passed such a bill in June, increasing financial assistance under the health law and undoing some of President Trump’s actions but without a public option. That measure is already written and ready to go, and it also includes provisions to lower drug prices, a top Democratic priority.
    Oh, did you already forget that the DNC explicitly ran ads against M4A or a public option?

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/0...den-dnc-399370

    But not like it matters much when it didn't get talked about at the DNC or really been mentioned since. About the only progressive measure I've heard Biden literally say in any interview is that he'd work towards a 15 USD/hour minimum wage, and only when people explicitly ask him about that. Nothing about the specifics for climate other than Paris Accord, nothing about healthcare other than he'll stop Trump/Reps from repealing it as they've been trying to do, etc etc.

    Also, the fossil fuel subsidies thing not being an issue for you I take it?

    Oh, remember the Tara Reade thing? Looks like someone has actually bothered to look into the story.

    Well since the hill article explicitly said exactly the opposite of what you said it did and a brief skim of the Biden website page still advocates for the public option I honestly decided the vox article was a waste of my time.

    Man, that's some selective reading of the hill article to get that it doesn't say anything about Democrats not wanting to work towards a public option, when it literally says Democrats are leaning towards dropping the public option due to concerns that the healthcare industry is pushing extremely aggressively to not doing a public option (but tax credits are ok).

    Time to go back to ignoring this thread for the most part until at least a month after the election because of how much a shitshow it's going to be election day and the mail-in ballots trickling in.

    actual article: so and so said it should happen, so and so said it shouldn’t. The Biden campaign declined to comment.

    You: WTF Tobias selective reading?!

    To be fair, "No comment" does mean that you aren't going to do something, but don't have the balls to actually say so becasue you'll catch shit for it. Because if it was a ridiculous statement they'd come out and say that it was fucking stupid. I get that it's a few weeks until the election and you can't bog yourself down responding to every little question from all over the place, but healthcare is important enough it should have a clear policy. No comment on it seems really suspect.

    Speaking of Healthcare, the Alberta Conservatives just took a vote the other day to make American style healthcare the priority issue in the next provincial election. I wonder how badly they're going to self destruct? They only just pulled themselves together from the last time.

    Eh. You also have to consider whose asking for comment. Remember in end game politics you have literal thousands of news agencies and tens of thousands more individuals pretending to be news agencies vying for your attention. Thehill isn’t a complete tabloid, but it’s not exactly a top tier news source. Honestly if I had been communications director instead of drafting a statement I didn’t have time for I probably would have just said no comment or referred the questioner to my website.

    healthcare is important but you can talk about that during the debates or in a stump speech, and in a time crunch you have to be willing to let the little satellite bubble news sites go by the wayside when you are putting in 20 hour days just to try to keep the right stories up on the FOX to MSNBC brand-width going

    Apolitical my ass, Chris Pratt is part of a church that’s pro gay conversion therapy. That’s pretty fucking political.

    Does he go around flaunting it, though? Also, when the Quad does finally fight China, how about Australia lead the vanguard?

    Dude if he’s attending that church he either supports gay conversion therapy or doesn’t care about the suffering it causes.

    Either way, screw him.

    Fuck him, and fuck RDJ, Mark Ruffalo, all of them. Brie Larson, Tessa Thompson and Zendaya went through hell on Twitter and there was nary a word from them, now people make a dumb meme about Chris Pratt being the worst Chris and suddenly they all jump to his defence? This "old boys' club" mentality is the worst.
    Also, yeah, Chris Pratt is a prat, and fuck the manchildren who defend him just because he plays Starlord.

    To amend my previous comment in response to this, it’s also possible the no comment thing was a bit of political gamesmanship intended to draw folks offsides before the debate in which he reiterated support for the public option and rebubbed it “bidencare”. I thought that was a good moment from the debate.

    For the record, I'm in favour of violence as a legitimate tool of protest. That said, fuck those assholes for trying to coopt and subvert Black Lives Matter protests.
