In too many ways to count, now that a minority of Americans have successfully reaffirmed their delusional, blinded faith in the Almighty Businessman, but we’re especially fucked on healthcare. The Clintonian crypto-fascist Right wing of the Democratic Party–when not busy concocting nonsense about Russia to explain away how their own favorite flavor of fascist predictably lost to a barely house-trained orangutan in a suit–is desperately attempting to protect its own preferred set-up to insure for-profit, private health insurance providers–legislation known popularly as Obamacare or the ACA (the Affordable Care Act, shortened from the official “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”)–from the depredations of Trumpcare, the “alternative” to Obamacare/Romneycare currently being hatched in the fetid bowels of Congressional Republicans. Yep. Fucked.
The focus of the Establishment Democratic Party narrative–save the ACA!–however has kept the only genuine solution to America’s healthcare woes–namely Medicare for All/single-payer–in the background at best. The American people need to move it to the foreground.
Married to the Sea, one of the outré online comic sites that I frequent, with it’s usual bleakly humorous take on life in general, has also been uncharacteristically–synchronistically?–topical of late.
