The Democratic Primary: A Comment

The question is not whether to pursue big, structural reforms. The question is whether to focus on big, structural reforms that the American people support now. There are many such reforms. Medicare for All is not one of them, as revealed by good polls.

Hardly anyone talks about one possible scenario. A “public option” attracts many people to switch away from their private insurance. Then, support for a complete transition to Medicare for All might be much stronger.

  1. I don’t get it , Wade. That’s what almost all the Dem candidates are arguing against Bernie and Elizabeth. Did you watch the debates?

  2. My understanding was that 70% of voters supported Medicare for All. Wade, could you give some details about any polls that showed a different result? Thanks.
