Because they’ll be faced with the reality that they virtually deny publicly now, that while they’ll promise you everything, they’ll deliver what government always does- poor service. And remember how they’ve also said they will get rid of any private insurance, so you wouldn’t have an option.
Dan Riffe, “policy guy” for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told old people that a future public healthcare option will not pay for things like hip replacements. Here’s a screenshot because for some odd reason he deleted it.
