Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "When You Can't 'Buy In'."

From DC's anarchist cartoonist Mike Flugennock:

"When You Can't 'Buy In'"

It isn't just that Kamala Harris has the gall to straight-up rip off 
the name "Medicare For All" for her hack-ass healthcare proposal, nor 
is it just the convoluted, typically technocratic Rube Goldberg nature 
of her grand plan, nor the fact that it builds on the "success" of 
Obamacare – a healthcare policy written by the Heritage Foundation. 
It's the fact that Kamalacare involves the health insurance industry – 
the heart of the very problem we're trying to eliminate.

And don't get me started on all her talk about "buying in" – basically 
no different from Obamacare, where people who are already struggling 
are forced to have "some skin in the game", in the words of our 
beloved ex-President.

Oh, and it's going to be phased in over ten years. Ten years. Fat lot 
of good that's going to do for all the people having to crowdfund 
their surgeries and are being gouged for their insulin right now.
