Progressives rejoiced after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently announced that the American Health Care Act lacks the votes to pass. Liberals must remember not to get complacent; congressional Republicans will continue to sabotage our current healthcare system through insufficient funding and "reform". House Republicans unveiled a budget proposal which defunds and slowly privatizes Medicare, the most popular entitlement program after Social Security, over the course of 10 years. Progressives need to stay vigilant in the fight for healthcare, as they must seize on the opportunity to fight for universal healthcare. Universal healthcare has a 58% approval rating. The American people have made it clear that they hate Trumpcare, now Democrats must provide America an alternative and shift the conversation so that Trumpcare can truly die and Republicans are exposed destroying healthcare behind closed doors.
