I am very disappointed that we are down to Senator Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. Neither of them were on my favorites list but I will vote for whoever is the final nominee. Still not sure who I will vote for in April.
But right now, Senator Sanders isn’t making me more interested in his candidacy. Right now as a US Senator, he has a chance to really shine and act presidential and make some major noise in the Senate as they debate financial and federal support for all Americans affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Instead he tweets this:
Yes, I love the sentiment. Regular readers know that I support a comprehensive, universal, single payer system…and you know that I have expressed doubts about Sen. Sanders messaging around his Medicare for All proposal.
But damn, it’s time for a short term plan to support and protect Americans who are suffering from the overall affects of the pandemic. I don’t need to hear the same campaign stump speech that I’ve been hearing since 2015.
Do your job! Show me what you got!
