The Most Important Legislation of My Lifetime Single payer healthcare is morally and economically right. Only the insurance industry would disagree with that. What do insurance companies provide us anyway? An overpriced payee is what they are and all they are. They don't care about our health; they are designed for their own profit.

Iowa Democrats Unite Behind Cathy and Pete Republicans didn't start winning elections by running to the center; they won by exciting their base. Of course they played on people's fears, scapegoating immigrants, women, people of color, and people's sexual orientation. Our job is to do the opposite. We have to reach out to people's decency. We just have to get better at defining what we stand for.

The 2020 Race for President Has Begun It's just the beginning. We know that Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, and the most speculated non-candidate of 2016, Senator Elizabeth Warren, may be sticking their toes in the water soon. And when since 1988 has former vice president Joe Biden not been rumored as a possibility? I still hope it's Bernie.

Bernie Releases Blueprint for GOP Demise You can agree or disagree with the senator from Vermont, but one thing you can't deny is he is a leader with a vision for what he thinks America should become, and he is passionately trying to create that world. I agree with Bernie on almost everything, and I believe he will be a prominent fixture in history books for generations to come.

So You Really Think Trump Is Not a Racist? What is your definition of a racist? Sexist? Bigot? Pay close attention to your answer; you might be on the defensive. Exactly; if you don't think Trump is a bigot then you probably are one yourself. Here is the Wikipedia definition of racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

Single Payer Healthcare Is Achievable Republicans are good at staying on-message and turning good ideas into dirty words. We need to do the same. We need to make greedy, for-profit insurance companies the boogeyman and convince people that the government can do a better job providing healthcare.

Take the Nukes Away From the Madman in the White House Neither Donald Trump nor Kim Jong-un should have access to the powerful militaries that they lead. Jong-un becomes stronger every time Donald Trump ratchets up the rhetoric. Sanctions and isolation are the right responses to North Korea. Threats and bluster only increase the chance that a catastrophic event will take place. We can no longer count on the current nuclear powers being sane enough not to use nuclear weapons.

Shocking News: "Big" Jim Justice Was a Democrat As I sat and watched the governor of West Virginia, "Big Jim" Justice, announce he was leaving the Democratic Party, it dawned on me that the shocking news was that this guy was ever a Democrat at all. He reminded me of Boss Hogg, and I'm not teasing him based on his weight like Donald Trump did when referring to the "large news" he had to announce.

The Next Step in the Healthcare Fight Of course in this Congress, there is little hope of single payer passing. It is, however, an issue on which Democrats could ride back to power. It is still true that many Americans don't understand the benefits of single payer, so it will take a massive movement in this country to win hearts and minds.

Progressives Turning Up the Heat on House Democrats Last summer Democrats passed the most progressive platform in its history. This summer it is time to bring that platform to life and make it mean something. We must return the Democratic Party to the people. The goal is to one day be able to say again that the Democratic Party puts people before profit.

The Healthcare Fight Is Far From Over In the era of Trump, expect the unexpected. The headlines say the Senate GOP healthcare plan is dead. The latest version may be, but we know they will try to dress it up and bring it back. They might not even dress it up -- they may strip it naked and promise they'll fix it up after 2018.

Progressives Are Saving the Democratic Party On issue after issue, the Democratic Party could lead but too often chooses to play it safe and take a moderate position in an attempt to get elected. Progressives have been organizing and shaping public opinion. Independent voters are ready for a bold progressive message. It is time for the Democratic Party to catch up to the rest of the American people and support a progressive agenda.

Trump Puts Politics Over Health of the Nation Trump and the Republicans are having a difficult time coming up with a replacement for Obamacare. It was easy to repeal it over and over when President Obama was there to veto the repeal. Now the votes mean something, and Republicans don't have a viable replacement.

People's Summit to Dems: Follow Us The message we have to take from Bernie and Nina is to fight for the future and support the party that follows us! We don't need to follow a political party. The movement must continue to move forward and not wait for Democrats -- if they want our votes they need to open the doors and let us in to lead them to victory.

Trump Declares Obamacare Dead I am worried that Obamacare will be repealed without an adequate replacement. The GOP says Obamacare is redistribution of wealth from the wealthy to the poor. They want the money back. They want to take from the poor and give it back to the rich.

DNC, Grow the Party and Vote for Keith Ellison a vote against Keith Ellison would be an invitation to millions of progressives to exit the party. A vote for Keith Ellison will be an invitation to stay and rebuild the party. Do the right thing and grow the party with Keith. Who do we gain or lose with Tom Perez as chair? That's right, we keep the corporate cash and lose progressive voters. The cash can be replaced; the voters are irreplaceable.

Donald Trump Is Creating Progressives It sucks that Donald Trump is President. We would be facing different obstacles if he had lost, and as I argued we would be better off. That said, we have to take advantage of the opportunities to organize that his presidency is providing. Those opportunities, unfortunately, are numerous.

Everyone Can Become a Real Progressive We need the corporate Democrats to shed the shackles of Wall Street and start focusing on the needs of the people. We need the underemployed trying to make ends meet to realize we are fighting for them. We need the women who were inspired by Hillary Clinton's receiving the most votes for president to support a progressive agenda. We are not going to agree on everything, but we need to move forward where we can.

Repealing Obamacare Will Be Negligent Homicide The Republican Party is preparing to throw millions of people off their healthcare. Many people will die of conditions that could have been prevented if they were covered. That is why I believe they would be guilty of negligent homicide. Instead of repealing Obamacare, we should take the next step toward universal healthcare and allow the federal exchange to negotiate a public option with healthcare providers.

Keith Ellison Is the Right Choice to Lead the DNC Debbie Wasserman Shultz and Donna Brazile have created an environment where progressives don't feel welcome in the Democratic Party. For us to bring many back into the fold we need a meaningful first step. Electing Keith Ellison chair of the party is the first step to healing the division in our party.
