William Owen, a former TN lawmaker and DNC member, was among the superdelegates quoted in a New York Times article revealing an effort among party insiders to block Sanders’ path to the nomination if he wins a plurality of pledged delegates but not enough to secure a win on a first ballot.

Yasmine Taeb, a DNC member from VA, argued that Bloomberg poses a much bigger risk than Sanders despite his self-declared claim to electability.

“Why shouldn’t D.N.C. members — especially the ones of us who were elected by the grass roots — instead be concerned about a former Republican sexist billionaire who is trying to buy the election? I certainly am,” she told The Times. “I’m not concerned, however, with the progressive candidate with the largest grass-roots support across the country to win the nomination, because that’s precisely what is needed to defeat Donald Trump.”

If only Single Payer-Medicare For All activists would explain just how for-profit health insurers would be affected by NOT getting so much "health care" money to invest in Wall Street, even into the most health-damaging industries, that would be helpfully informative and effective as part of the discussion . It's integral is it not?

For-Profit health insurers are the largest bloc of investors on Wall Street, even into the worst health-damaging industries (oil, coal, cigs, pesticides, junk food, weapons, fracking, GMOs, plastics, pharms that make tobacco pesticides, etc.) but for unknown reasons, Medicare For All activists don't mention this. Why this niceness to insurers?

"Affordable" care means some folks can "afford" to unknowingly contribute to insurers' multi million dollar investments into the very industries that may have caused a person's health problems. But who knows, and who agrees, that their health insurers are doing this? Ignorance isn't bliss.

Search up "PNHP Health Insurers Tobacco" (and ""junk food") to see that inexplicably ended coverage.
