Right now I’m listening to the Congressional Progressive and Tri- Caucuses’ press conference demanding a strong national healthcare option, and vowing to not vote for the so-called Blue Dog’s watered-down plan. While I’d rather see a Single-Payer system, I guess I’m ready to concede to the moment and see us win something decent, even if not perfect. Also, while I’m not always that into electoral politics, it’s still inspiring to hear Congresspeople talking about healthcare being a human right.
Also, while I’m at it, a friend of mine is part of a group organizing young people to fight for quality healthcare for all. They’re called Young Invincibles, and I highly recommend checking them out.
