AOC lowers expectations on Medicare for All, admitting Sanders 'can't wave a magic wand' to pass it

What’s going on? Have these people suddenly figured out that big promises without a clear plan to carry them out and a damn good idea what’ the cost will be might not fly with people who can actually think logically and count?

AOC lowers expectations on Medicare for All, admitting Sanders 'can't wave a magic wand' to pass it

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday that if Sen. Bernie Sanders were elected president, he still might not be able to get Medicare for All, his signature health plan, passed in Congress.

“A president can’t wave a magic wand and pass any legislation they want,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., told HuffPost this week.

While Ocasio-Cortez rarely tempers expectations when championing ideas like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal to fight climate change she helped author, she went on to suggest that under a President Sanders, a “compromise” might emerge on health care, even though she still considers Sanders’s bill the gold standard.

“The worst-case scenario? We compromise deeply and we end up getting a public option. Is that a nightmare? I don’t think so,” she said.

3. Don't worry. She's still as stupid as ever.

She always rambles on about getting rid of the Electoral College. Getting an amendment passed, much less that one, is light years harder than getting legislation though both federal houses.

5. MFA is so important they passed the ACA instead and gave the American people

a 10 year preview of just how incapable they are to effectively govern.

6. Back then I was an Obama supporter. But my

eyes started to open and my brain started working when during the healthcare hearings Max Baucus had doctors and nurses hauled out in handcuff and jailed for attempting to explain what a totally UNWORKABLE boondoggle it was. I

n fact, that lead to my being booted from Daily Kooks because I got into it with a complete tool named Denise something or another who told me I was a ‘racist’ and had no right to say anything negative about Obama and anything he was trying to promote.

It didn’t end well. I have never been banned but I am not allowed to post because there was no fucking way I was going to put up with that crap.
