It is ironic, isn’t it? everything Bernie has been trying to do for us and then an actual pandemic hits (before the election). And the current incompetent president screws up the US handle and preparation for it. I’d be defeated if I were Bernie but he is damned determined to continue fighting. I seriously don’t understand why so many Americans are against universal health care. Here in Europe, we pay way less for insurance and get absolutely no hospital bills. We can go to the doctor whenever we feel like with no punishment, and because of that, we get preventative care much more often, which actually makes universal health care cheaper than whatever it is America is doing.
We didn’t learn anything from the 2008 financial crash, we didn’t learn anything from Sandy Hook, why do people think we’ll learn anything from coronavirus? Once the pandemic is over and the dust settles the country will resume business as usual. I wish it were otherwise but it isn’t, systemic change is impossible in America. Do you think Bernie would have made things better? Like a president has a magic wand that makes all good things happen? Bernie’s pie in the sky would have assured that nothing was done at all.
