Keith Ellison promotes the magic bullet of Fantasycare

How about a magic trick? I’m going to let Keith Ellison make logic and reason disappear. He won’t do it in a full Tweet; no folks, Mr. Ellison only needs HALF A TWEET to astound you with the impossible.

Are you ready? Here it is:

“Medicare for All would guarantee health care as a right — and would cost less and produce better health outcomes than the status quo.”

Let’s break that down. Medicare for All would guarantee health care for all, which it to say many more people will be getting much more healthcare than they do today. In the second part of the magic trick ,he declares it was cost less than it does today! Not only that, but his grand finale comes in the form of a true impossibility, that it will produce better health outcomes!

So in Mr. Ellison’s mind, Medicare for All will provide more healthcare while costing less money and will also yield better results.

How did we miss it for so long? We’ve been debating Obamacare and Romneycare and Trumpcare and everything else for a decade now when the answer was right in front of us. The debate is over. We simply have to hand over control of the healthcare system to socialists and they’ll present us with Fantasycare. It’s so good there’s a slight chance it won’t kill you while making us all broke. Slight.

Why Republicans should hope Sanders or Warren is the Democratic nominee

Why Republicans should hope Sanders or Warren is the Democratic nominee

For the record, I am not condoning any activities by Republicans to sway Democrats one way or the other. It’s their nomination to make. But that doesn’t mean we can’t hope for an outcome, and based on a report from… wait for it… CNN, the best candidates for President Trump to beat are Senators Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders.

Both are popular, polling 2nd and 3rd with each flip flopping from day to day with the other. One claims to be a socialist while the other acts like a socialist pretending to not be one. But they have many policy proposals in common, including one that could either of them in the general election.

As it turns out, there are plenty of people who like their health insurance. To make matters worse, there are plenty of people who also do not like the idea of losing their health insurance or being forced to accept whatever concoction the government can spew forth with Medicare-for-All.

Warren and Sanders say Americans don’t like their health insurance. Polls don’t back that up.

A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds that when it comes to expanding coverage and lowering health care costs 55% of Democrats and Democratic leaning independents prefer to vote for a candidate who does so by building on the Affordable Care Act. Only 40% want do so by voting for voting for a candidate who replaces the ACA with Medicare for All.

This poll is consistent with previous Kaiser polls on the subject in finding Democrats wanting to vote for someone who builds on the ACA.

This tells us two things many conservatives have known for a long time. First, it tells us Americans like choices. Second, it tells us Americans do not want to be forced onto a government program even if it’s allegedly free… or perhaps especially if it’s allegedly free.

While most polls show former VP Joe Biden would be the toughest for President Trump to beat, I’ve long suspected his gaffes and potentially deteriorating cognitive state would make him the most vulnerable. But this new data seems to say the polls are right, that Biden may be tougher than Sanders or Warren simply because his proposed Obamacare 2.0 with a public option may be the most popular proposal out there, including with moderates.

Single-payer healthcare, which eliminates all choices while taking down the quality of services provided, could be the silver bullet that takes down the two socialist werewolves. The only question is whether Democrats or President Trump will get to use it.

Facebook uncensors Live Action after Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley intervene

Facebook uncensors Live Action after Ted Cruz Josh Hawley intervene

Pro-life activist group Live Action has been in hot water with Facebook since last month. They’ve been accused of spreading false news after a fact-check group claimed a video of Lila Rose saying “abortions is never medically necessary” was false. This drew the attention of Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, both of whom have been going after Facebook for anti-conservative bias in their censorship patterns for some time.

As part of Facebook’s International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), a group called Health Feedback used the fact-checking of two physicians with ties to pro-abortion groups. This led to the group’s page and content being censored with reduced exposure and warnings placed on their content as fake news.

Cruz and Hawley sent a letter to Facebook calling for an investigation and noting they’ve already uncovered multiple cases of unabashed bias against conservative content on pages. Facebook replied in an unexpectedly compliant manner.

“We have been in touch with the IFCN which has opened an investigation to determine whether the fact checkers who rated this content did so by following procedures designed to ensure impartiality,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “While the IFCN investigates, we are removing the relevant fact checks and have communicated this to the members of the US Senate who brought this specific concern to our attention.”

Facebook removes fact check from anti-abortion video after criticism

The fact check was published by the group Health Feedback, part of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), which is partnered with Facebook to crack down on misinformation on the platform. Health Feedback’s reviews rated Rose’s claim as inaccurate, saying, “Certain medical conditions such as placenta previa and HELLP syndrome can make abortion a necessary medical procedure in order to prevent the mother’s death.”

Live Action said that after the fact check was posted late last month, the group was notified by Facebook that its page’s content would be subject to “reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news.”

Censorship by Big Tech is an ongoing issue that requires both lawmakers and conservative users to stand out ground. They are protected as unbiased platforms by Section 230. They need to play fair.

Amy Klobuchar: ‘While Bernie wrote the bill, I read the bill’

Amy Klobuchar While Bernie wrote the bill I read the bill

Amy Klobuchar’s candidacy may be fading, but she made an important point against Bernie Sanders’s and Elizabeth Warren’s push for Medicare-for-All during tonight’s Democratic debate. On page eight of the bill, health insurance as we know it today would be eliminated.

And Pete Buttigieg seized on the opportunity to highlight his own Medicare-for-All-Who-Want-It proposal by saying he trusts the American people, which Sanders and Warren do not. The joint attacks on the staple of both Sanders’s and Warren’s campaign was meaningful.

Then, Kamala Harris was given the opportunity to pile on. She did. She echoed Buttigieg’s push for a choice between private and public plans.

The debate continues and we’ll update this as more is made of the Medicare-for-All debate.

It’s important that Democrats on the debate stage are fighting against the notion of Medicare-for-All as a universal healthcare plan. It says they’re listening and that Sanders and Warren have a harder hill to climb than before the debate.
