The other issue is this... It needs to be an amendment.

We can't play with people's health like this, where they have coverage, then there's a chance in management and all of a sudden they don't.

Agreed. It’s a crying shame that we used to amend the constitution for things that matter, and yet in my lifetime the only attempted constitutional amendment was the single most pathetic thing a group of politicians could ever argue about.

End slavery
Women can vote
Alcohol is immoral and its existence is against our virtues
Jk on the last one
Leadership limits to avoid seizure of power
What happens when the leadership hierarchy is unexpectedly shaken up
You can’t burn a piece of cloth


Wait what

In Canada we have universal healthcare, but private insurance exists for supplementary spending. It is typically paid for by the employer with the employee making a contribution, not huge, depending on whether they have a spouse and dependents. This covers:

- prescription drugs (not sure if it's the same across all provinces but here they are free for all kids, seniors below a certain income threshold, people on social assistance, etc but everyone else pays)
- hospital expenses (if you want semi-private or private accommodations as opposed to a ward room to be shared with up to 4 patients)
- massage therapy, physio, occupational therapy, dentistry, orthodontics, prosthetics, vision care like glasses, contacts, etc.

Additionally we also have entirely private medical care facilities in a very limited fashion. The wealthy go to MedCan or something similar for their annual physicals, quick work ups, etc. Typically provided to executives by their employers. Fertility clinics are also outside of the public sphere - some provinces cover very limited fertility treatment for "free" (in reality they cover a small percentage of costs for a certain number of cycles), but generally they are unregulated and can and do charge what their American counterparts would. Meaning tens of thousands of $.

Right now, there is space for Biden, and his appeal to working clas whites is real.

Not seeing space for Sanders.

imagine being so utterly morally bankrupt that you unironically call the basic concept of fairness "this ideology" with a perfectly straight face on national television on a network that literally has the word "fair" in its slogan.

Don't worry, they will soon trot out Joe the Plumber Part 2 to explain to us all how these tax proposals will kill the American Dream.
