    This is a long, motherfucking article and I didn't break it down for you. Basically, The Intercept got its hands on the dossiers from the largest healthcare-industry lobby in America and has discovered that certain Democrats have publicly supported "medicare for all" while privately agreeing to oppose it in exchange for contributions.

    You mean, the people in power don't really have our best interest in mind?

    See, at least the Republicans are transparent for their hatred of the average person. These fuckers are the ones that whisper sweet things into your ear as they ready your ass for pegging night.

    these are 3 (out 6) of the D candidates for special election in HI. Hawaii has 2 (out of 435) seats in the House. The incumbent (she quit to run for governor) was already a D.

    We'll have plenty more of these to match in the general public, who say they support the idea of medicine as a human right, yet move up a couple tax brackets and start getting nervous. I can see it happening already as support for UHC grows.

    No, it's not all lip service. It's probably not even 10% lip service.
