Corporate Democrat Ruben Kihuen Now LYING About ‘Medicare for All’ Bill

Corporate Democrat Ruben Kihuen of Nevada's 4th district recently learned that he's being primaried by a real progressive named Amy Vilela, who is challenging him namely due to his unwillingness to cosponsor John Conyers' 'Medicare for All' bill (H.R. 676). Now that he has an opponent that STRONGLY supports H.R. 676, he's trying to make himself look better by obfuscating and outright lying about John Conyers' bill. In this segment, we call him out for the misinformation he's deliberately spreading, and tell you how you can help support his opponent.

  1. Dude- he can’t be wishy-washy on single-payer AND have Villela primarying him. He *will* lose.

    And people who get insurance from employers *STILL* pay for it and have outrageous co-pays, premiums, co-insurance and deductibles. You got it, Mike.

    • He is getting paid to run the campaign in this way. If he loses, his backers will definitely make the risk he took worth it.

      He will get paid even if he loses, for the effort to maintain the status quo.

    • Exactely – but if more and more lose their seats the donors will not finance enough golden parachutes for everyone. And the sellouts becom eincreasingly useless for the special interests. Maybe the come up with something for the big shots in the parties but not for everyone. Labour in the UK shows that effect. The Labour Members of Parliament (many of them) subverted the Party leader directly elected by the base.The governing Tory party called a snap election last April – they thought it would be a landslide win, that they could expand their slim majority. Nope, on the contrary they lost the absolute majority and Labour won seats. – But before, the media, and every establishment figure, everyone – except the Labour base – was convinced Labour would be slaughtered, that would have meant a number of MPs losing their seat. – And let’s face it, these folks invest in their political career when others citizens build their professional life. What are they going to do, when no one gives them a job ? Starting a biz ? (I mean a real and productive one , not some consulting/lobbying scam). Being self employed or an entrepreneur i’s not everyone’s cup of tea – although it would be a worthwhile experience for them.

      to their great relief they could keep their seats and then some – and it is very satisfying to watch how they have become tame and do not backstab their progressive leader every chance they get. They were really scared to lose, and not everyone is a big number.

      In Europe the campaigns are (mostly) publicly funded, there are fairness rules for TV, caps how much may be spent on TV ads, etc. European politicians are still almost as much captured by special interests as the U.S. politicians who are openly bought by the donors.. The reason is the dilemma – what is an ex-politican going to do. you can lose an election, or get burn-out, or just want to do something else. – and some just want to make much more money than was ever possible with a political position. – In all these cases it pays really off to think of the interests of Big Biz while in office – they have the cushy jobs as backup or as reward.

    • Lou G You remove the middle man, the health insurance industry, and pay higher taxes if necessary to pay for your health care. Your doctor is paid by the government instead of health insurance. If you look up a handy little military healthcare called Tricare, you’ll find that this is socialized medicine.

    • Happens for Congressman and Senators
      Ask yourself why they’re keeping it to themselves if we have the “better” system.

    • Lou G It seems highly possible. It is certainly gaining ground. I thunk it’s just a matter of time. Just my opinion

    • I am in his zone I will vote against him. I emailed him a couple of months ago asking why he won’t back HR 676 when his platform was all about expanding healthcare. I got some BS reply about how the republicans are trying to take away the ACA and that we need to stand strong to defeat them. Coward. I will be reaching out to Amy to volunteer for her campaign.

    • I’m in his zone. But we could sure use the help. We need volunteers. Join us if you can and sign up to volunteer at

  2. has anyone looked into how much money we spend paying our congressmen and senators? what if we made those unpaid volunteer positions where they get paid in experience and the chance to serve the american people?
    could we use the money we save by not paying our elected officials a salary to give everyone healthcare?

    • D G what if you made a law that if you become an elected official, all your bills are deferred until after your term is up, also would need term limits on positions.


    • they work like less than 6 months out of the year and definitely less than 10 hours a day. they can get a second job and work that second job while volunteering in office as an unpaid civil servant. the job shouldn’t be for those who have and can make the most money-it should be for those most willing to do it properly. the job is to serve the american people both in your district and across the nation-if people are looking for a high paying career, they should look elsewhere.

    • Look at how much is being spent on war. THAT has ALREADY bankrupted the country. Single-payer healthcare, on the other hand, will SAVE MONEY because it is both CHEAPER and BETTER.

  3. Your a loser if you can’t figure out how to rip off the govt. of the people. Many do but much don’t bother trying and to the ambitious crook goes the spoils. Spoiled genes inhabit the human genome is the only explanation for such systemic corruption at every intersect of import and optimal potential for good progress.

  4. Government fucks up everything it touches. Tell you what — you pay for your healthcare, I’ll pay for mine.
