The bizarre strategy of Firedoglake
Saturday, December 5, just as Heathcare-NOW! and others were calling on their supporters to push for Bernie Sander's single payer amendment, just as the Pennsylvania single payer movement was gearing up for their big hearing before their Senate Banking Committee, readers of FireDogLake were asked to support a very long shot Democratic Candidate for the US Senate. Failure to pony up was instantly interpreted as lack of commitment on the part of single payer advocates.
More recently FDL Action has been sponsoring a petition against Bernie Sanders, of all people.
NTodd is underwhelmed.
Well Jane, what is the grand strategy? How is going after the Senate's only socialist going to get us closer to single payer? How is backing a NY long shot going to get us closer to single payer?
And most of all, how is the continued newsblack out on news about Pennsylvania and other state single payer movements goint to get us closer to single payer?
What is the strategy? What is the plan?
