It's not especially newsworthy today, though it's still of value and not unimportant for later on as the general election nears. And in some ways it may even be far more important in November than now.
It was an article in Raw Story I saw which reports that --
"A Republican-friendly pollster has found that Democrats are crushing the GOP among suburban voters on health care, which just happens to be the main issue cited by voters in the 2018 midterm election that swept Democrats into control of the House of Representatives.
"The Washington Examiner reports that a poll conducted by GOP firm Echelon Insights on behalf of political nonprofit organization N2America has found that 'suburban voters prefer Democrats over Republicans by 20 percentage points on healthcare, an issue they rank higher than the economy, and by more than 15 points on prescription drug pricing.'"
The article concludes -- “'Forty-eight percent of suburban voters are highly worried’ about losing current federal insurance protections for preexisting medical conditions,” the Examiner reports. “Trump has worked hard to counter Democratic claims that he would repeal this regulation, which was codified under Obamacare, a law the president is still vowing to undo.”
The point is that for every election issue on the table, Democrats should pound, pound and pound home health care. And this the case was before the health pandemic spread. It's near-impossible to imagine that health care won't just be more important in the general election, but overwhelmingly more important.
And it's not a case of whether it should be "Medicare for All" or "the Public Option" or "expanded Obamacare" or... well, pretty much anything. It's a case that -- Democrats want to expand national healthcare coverage in some way... and Trump and Republicans want to end it. And if Republicans try to deny it, then they have to explain the lawsuit that Republican states have instituted and that the Trump administration supports which would effective crush the Affordable Care Act.
That's the point Democrats have to make over and over and over and over and over and over...
"We want to expand national healthcare coverage, and Trump and the Republicans want to end it. Period. Full story."
And you repeat that over and over and over.
This was true several weeks ago. It's even more critical today. It will be consequential in November.
