Elizabeth Kucinich and Fannie Lou Hamer Soul Sisters

Yesterday's Facebook Poll Shows Private Insurers Favored by 70%.

Democrats lack marketing skills and political adeptness. The poll I took on Facebook this morning referred to "government run" healthcare. It is no wonder 70% of the respondents voted against it. The government loses wars, kills innocents and mocks the Constitution.
The leftists should realize this is not an academic debate. The public doesn't care about the civil right of health. They view the 47 millions of uninsured as undeserving lay abouts. The unemployed should rise up and get a job.
This is a pocketbook issue. The Veterans Administration provides the lowest cost and best health care in the USA. Private industry wastes 30% of premiums on advertising, sales commissions, profits and big executive salaries. A recent study rated the VA better than private industry throughout 278 rating categories. Obviously, the right thinking legislators should base a universal plan on the Veteran's Administration example.
I post this Elizabeth Kucinich video on how best to pitch single payer.

What Will We Do to Those Who Don't Vote for Single Payer?

Why do we urge our legislators to pass single payer? They have refused this for the last 60 years. The President speaks of public option as a compromise. He won't get that either.

May I suggest a new strategy? At least one committee should put a straight single payer on the floor. It could be an adaptation of the Veterans Administration program, the best we have. If we can't get reconciliation for that, anybody who failed to vote for it should be tried for murder of the 18,000 people who died last year without proper insurance.

As great as she is, Elizabeth Kucinich can not lift us to political respectability by herself. We need more Americans to stand up for what is right. I would choose Fannie Lou Hamer as a role model.
