Embittered Failed Nominee and Establishment Figurehead Clinton Again Lashes Out at Sanders, on Ellen DeGeneres Show

Hillary again lashed out, telling DeGeneres that his “failure to deliver the moon” could further public distrust in politics.

“We need to rebuild trust in our fellow Americans and in our institutions, and if you promise the moon and you can’t deliver the moon, then that’s going to be one more indicator of how we just can’t trust each other,” said Clinton of the Vermont Senator.

Sanders has repeatedly polled as the most trustworthy candidate in the Democratic field by a sizable margin, rated as one of the top candidates in head to head matchups against President Trump.

The remarks seem reflective of increasing levels of desperation among the Democratic establishment that Sanders will win the nomination, and in some quarters the fact that he may end up in the White House, hurting some of their big donors who donated to ensure more corporate friendly policies.

I often think it would be helpful if the Sanders campaign would devote some advertising to showing just how a socialized medicine system would work, especially the money part. It seems apparent to me, just on the face of it, that it would be much cheaper than anything else, what with no advertising costs, greater ability to control drug and hospital costs, not to mention the psychological benefits of relief from payment anxiety, which itself would lead to dollar savings when patients seek preventative care instead of waiting for expensive interventions.

But it would be good to see all that put into figures: the taxes vs. individual payments and all that. Otherwise, opponents keep talking about "pie in the sky" and "unworkable". Maybe Sanders has covered the cost comparisons somewhere, but, if so, it's not obvious to most people.

Also, there's a whole "triage" question that should be dealt with. We've all read stories about how government health care programs in other countries, like England and Canada, deny care for certain rare or expensive cases. It seems natural and proper that this would happen sometimes, because it is the case that there is not an unlimited amount of money to cover every possible illness. But people worry, and rightfully so, in my opinion, if they think they are now better covered by their present plan and that socialized medicine would "take something away" from them. So that, in my mind, is a big subject that should be aired more and thrashed out.

Fred:

I see Stephen suggested you do an article. I'm wondering if you contact the campaign committee and told them you were working on an article, that they would supply that information for you?

Thanks, guys! I feel like I am good for writing a few good paragraphs from time to time, but I don't know if I could do a sustained article. I just started reading some of the writing tips on the OEN faq page -- maybe I'll get inspired.

How would one contact the Sanders campaign committee, anyway?
