"Less than a month after Democrats — many of them running on “Medicare for All” — won back control of the House of Representatives in November, the top health policy aide to then-prospective House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with Blue Cross Blue Shield executives and assured them that party leadership had strong reservations about single-payer health care and was more focused on lowering drug prices, according to sources familiar with the meeting.

Pelosi adviser Wendell Primus detailed five objections to Medicare for All and said that Democrats would be allies to the insurance industry in the fight against single-payer health care. Primus pitched the insurers on supporting Democrats on efforts to shrink drug prices, specifically by backing a number of measures that the pharmaceutical lobby is opposing.

Primus, in a slide presentation obtained by The Intercept, criticized single payer on the basis of cost (“Monies are needed for other priorities”), opposition (“Stakeholders are against; Creates winners and losers”), and “implementation challenges.” We have recreated the slides for source protection purposes."

    • +Cineris and the fact you want to call fascists “conservative”, as if they belong in the USA, shows how messed up your “system” is.

    • +Majin Troll It might help if you understood the system that is here, you might understand what I am saying, your lack of understanding is evident here. The supporting Facists/corportists vs …. comment is rather irrelevant when you don’t have a socialist society that protects as well as educates it’s people. Here’s why…

      Another turn of Republican control can be extremely costly to the threads of systems in place now. If they buckle millions go without healthcare as well as proper food sources. So what you view as “not a bad thing” is extremely costly, in terms of voters who do not participate due to arbitrary guidelines. Such as my favorite candidate didn’t win the Primary.

    • ​+Cineris “Another turn of Republican control can be extremely costly to the threads of systems in place now.”
      well you arent going to prevent that by supporting corporatists.
      corporatism and fascism are allied ideologies, democrats want republicans to have control or else they wouldnt believe special interest groups controlling the government is “the way it works.”

      “If they buckle millions go without healthcare as well as proper food sources.”
      millions already do, i know you stupid democrats like to pretend the ACA made sure everyone could get insurance but that is a lie.
      democrats dont want people to have “proper food sources” because that would hurt pepsico’s profits.

      why would democrats want more people to participate in elections? that would mean more obligations to prove they are somehow different from republicans, which they have no interest in doing.

      illiberal “democracy” is the best thing for both democrats and republicans. maybe if you embraced that fact, like republicans do, instead of denying it you could convince some republicans to vote for democrats since thats all that seems to matter so you can ignore people who hate you both. LOLOL

    • ​+Majin Troll I’m not a democrat I am an independent, I’m one of those who dislike both, but I also understand who stands for what and what is lost or in danger under whom.

      There’s no hope of getting Repubs to vote Dem as they’re even more solidified into their belief systems than hardcore progressives tend to be. For even more simple minded reasoning.

      The rest of what you said shows you have no real idea how the systems work in our country and who fights to implement things that hurt those systems.

      Do you understand how Medicaid works? DO you understand what the Medicaid expansions under Obamacare did? Obviously not, so until you do. Stuff it. I know because I am on it (due to a heart condition that renders me unable to work full time)..,

      I know what repubs are trying to do to it so get off your high horse when you’re completely ignorant of what you speak.

    • they own both parties +Slap Daddy the tax cut all the corporations wanted, reps and trump delivered. we’re trying to primary them out cause 3rd parties don’t work with our corrupt election format.

      What are YOU doing about corporations running politics?

  1. Pelosi, Feinstein, Waters, Schumer et al NEED TO RESIGN. The entire ‘old democratic party’ needs to leave. They have been bought and sold too many times by corporate interests. They are poster photos for Term Limits. The old democrats are republican light at best.

  2. This is a vital story. Every democrat/progressive needs to know about this. Let it spread through social media.

  3. I do not want Nancy to tell US the men/women/children of this nation that we can’t have UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE FOR ALL. Nancy and her children have never had to worry about healthcare “since we value them more than our own.”
    I live in a very small farming community, the community paper, every single week tells of FUND RAISERS for mom/dad/children always the INSURED . This week is a lovely 4 year old who has cancer, dad is a fireman and mom is a EMT, they are suffering not only because of the baby’s sickness but THE FINANCIAL BURDEN IS SADISTIC. THIS PISSES ME OFF THE MOST, this baby is suffering while CORPORATE PHARMA tells this baby that if his parents can’t afford it then…oh well, they can have another. SICK TO DEATH OF THE LIES!

  4. SHOCKING. Why can’t you have what I have in Australia? Free medical. How DARE they not allow a little child go to the doctor. DISGUSTING. A country is judged by the way it treats its lowest member. Ghandi.
