  1. The US government can’t even provide adequate care for the men and women who have went to foreign soils and fought for it. How are we to trust they’ll get it right now? The only thing the US government is efficient in is incompetence.

  2. “How wonderful is this. A beautiful silver lining.”

  3. I don’t know, I work for the VA and am disappointed in our pandemic response, at least locally. In my region, some of our medical centers haven’t even closed outpatient clinics yet, and most of our non-essential employees are still required to come in to the office. We aren’t doing nearly enough for our employees to stop the spread. I’m touched that Rep. Omar believes that the public health care that we have currently is good enough for everyone, but man would we need to find people much more interested in efficiency and effectiveness than VA leadership to run it.

    In case you were wondering the VA is the Department of Veterans Affairs and is the only federal hospital system in the US. And FWIW I am an epidemiologist and a liberal so I have professional interest in public health response and socialized medicine.

  4. America will never let go of capitalism

  5. Governments are much more accountable to voters in smaller countries because voters have more awareness of what’s going on and what the government is doing.

    Meanwhile in America, the majority of voters in the Democratic Party primary support Medicare for All, but they vote for Joe Biden because they don’t know that he is emphatically opposed to it.
