I got into an argument with someone yesterday because I was saying the exact same thing. He responded to my criticism of the ACA as “Republican Lite” by saying you have to wind up in the middle somewhere to get things passed. When asked what legitimate reason I had for voting for Bernie in 2016 I said imagine if we started the negotiations further left.
I feel so dumb and short-sighted. This whole time I was thinking these nut jobs hated abortion because they want people to be punished for having icky gross premarital sex (I’m sure a lot of evangelicals actually oppose it for this reason), but the rich and powerful hate it because it cuts down their supply of cheap and exploitable labor.
