Crumpet Ogler told Casual to eat a dick, and then said:
no embrace of radical progressivism. My instinct that Bernie and AOC have a support ceiling that they've already hit seems to have been right. Socialism, democratic or not, and wokeness are not what the electorate wants.
"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan will return to their seats in the US Congress. The four women of color, who championed ambitious climate action, healthcare for all Americans and other progressive causes while enduring frequent racism and derision from Donald Trump, will no longer be newcomers to Capitol Hill."

"Other progressive representatives who have won re-election include Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Mark Pocan of Wisconsin. And the progressives Jamaal Bowman of New York and Cori Bush of Missouri are headed to Congress for the first time, after winning their respective elections."

"Every single swing-seat House Democrat who endorsed #MedicareForAll won re-election or is on track to win re-election. Every. Single. One."

When the reality sets in that Covid-related deaths have already exceeded 300K, the idea of not dying from a lack of healthcare seems like a pretty good idea.

The largest group opposing UHC are Republicans, of which a disturbingly large percentage are ironically pro-life. Though this seems to be a rather gray area,, unless you're poor, a minority, or a poor minority. Trump's Covid-19 treatment was developed using fetal tissue cells. For some reason his pro-life and anti-UHC supporters had no problem with this apparent dichotomy.

It's probably due to a combination of wealth, and gullibility wrapped in the whitest bow of tribalism Stephen Smith could find.
