“Italians don’t have to worry that tests won’t be available,

or that they’ll have to pay for those tests ...

They don’t have to fear that if they seek help now they’ll get a bill later

or that medical costs will bankrupt them,” writes

 
Why I’d Rather Be in Italy for the Coronavirus Pandemic -
 
"..........Last night, after President Donald Trump abruptly announced he was blocking travel from Europe to the U.S. — though officials later retracted and clarified much of that statement — people in Europe raced to airports, reportedly paying as much as $20,000 to try to catch flights out. And still I am trying to figure out how to make the opposite trip.

Even as the death toll back home continues to climb and the lockdown gets stricter by the day, I would much rather weather this pandemic in Italy than here. I just can’t shake the terror that the United States, my adopted country, is fundamentally unequipped to handle what lies ahead.........

Latest reports on TV state that the hospitals and healthcare systems in Italy are already severely taxed and overwhelmed in some areas.

I’ve always said I’ll support the nominee. That hasn’t changed.

But I reject the idea that we can’t push politicians to earn our vote & adopt progressive policies that the majority of our party supports.

If we keep giving our power away to politicians then nothing will change.

-_-

Do the majority of people who consider themselves Democrats really support progressive/socialist policies?  I know other Democrats and none support the progressive/socialist agenda.

Regardless, the elections are not about advancing the progressive/socialist agenda, but about replacing Trump and as many Republicans as possible at all levels of government.

Hey, Tulsi didn't even place.

I saw this story on CNN and at first felt it had to be a joke.    It wasn't but it came off as such.

Let's be clear—any rescue of the airlines must put workers first.

That means: Paying all workers at least $15 an hour

Ending stock buybacks

No outsourcing jobs

Expanding benefits

Workers sitting on corporate boards

 

We cannot repeat the failures of the last bailout.

Here Sanders is right;   No private company \ industry should get a taxpayer funded bailout unless as part of the package management salaries are capped at 200K for a 2 year period as well as other measures that ensure the bailout doesn't benefit the top 5% of employees or stock holders.

It is time for Sanders to do the right thing for America and the Democratic Party.  End his campaign now and join Team Biden.  This would also enable states to cancel remaining primaries.

He might even credit you in the speech he has announced.

But I agree.

The presidential candidate’s team indicated that he might consider stepping aside, and conversations were underway with Joe Biden’s camp.

  • Sean Sullivan, Michelle Ye Hee Lee and Jenna Johnson
  • Bernie Sanders signaled Wednesday that he was open to ending his presidential run after another round of landslide losses to Joe Biden, and new signs emerged of communication between the two camps as some Democrats hoped for a swift end to a bruising primary.

    Sanders campaign officials said the senator from Vermont planned to leave Washington and return home, where he and his wife, Jane, would talk to supporters and determine the future of his presidential run. The campaign also suspended its Facebook ads and, uncharacteristically, made no request for donations in an email to backers updating them on the situation.

    Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said that aides to the two candidates have been in touch regularly to discuss the public health crisis that has gripped the country, disclosing talks that could form the basis of a broader agreement on policies and might make Sanders more comfortable leaving the race.

Sanders' campaign raises over $2 million for coronavirus charities

BURLINGTON, Vt. — The Bernie Sanders campaign is focusing its resources on fighting the coronavirus pandemic, and his supporters appear to be following suit. In the last 48 hours, the Sanders campaign said they’ve raised more than $2 million from 50,000 donations for select charities.

This is good, but I still say the most positive thing Sanders could do is to get out of the race, endorse Biden and implore his supporters to work and vote for Biden's election.

Wouldn't hurt to find someway to work for McConnell's defeat in Nov.

While I do not think Sanders will be elected, I agree with the notion here of motivating the Democratic base and the poor so that people actually vote this election, unlike last time.

What is Bernie up to these days?  Seems he is using the current situation as a platform to promote his agenda.  As below article says, once he is out of the race (and he will be), the media and public will no longer pay attention to him.  

Still seems to me that he could better help the Dems win in Nov., if he left the race even though he would lose his pulpit.

Maybe he is waiting for the dust to clear so that people will pay some attention when he bows out and whole heartedly endorses Joe Biden.  No one gives a bleep about any of this at the moment.

I assume Sanders is in contact with Biden and his team with regards to the Dem party platform and V.P.  selection.      Biden has stated he will select a women for V.P. so now the only question is will it be a progressive or moderate and if white or person of color.

Sanders has some pull with regards to how passionate an endorsement he will give.       Some of the pundits have said that Amy Klobuchar would be the best choice since she would help with Minnesota,   her home state.     E.g. Harris is from CA and Dems have CA in a lock,  and Biden does well with African-Americans so he doesn't need a boost there (and Biden has Obama in his corner and we all know Obama can rally that segment of voters).

But Klobuchar is a moderate and Sanders and his most media-savvy supporter A.O.C.  (who has mocked Biden),   are likely advising Biden's team;   you wouldn't get passionate support from the progressive wing of the party with that ticket!

Before anyone gets bent out of shape I know this was only a poll but the one that was posted only a sort while ago showed that Elizabeth Warren would give Biden more of a bump than any of the others.

IMO Amy Klobuchar is like giving them what they already have.  Tim Kaine was not a brilliant choice for Hillary Clinton.  But hey,  right now Biden doesn't have a chance against the war time President.
