Joe Biden is wildly out of step with the Democrat electorate in his obstinate opposition to Medicare for All:
Some 71% of insurance industry presidential election donations in the 2020 election cycle have gone to Democrats, while just 29% have gone to the GOP. That 71% comes to a little over $6 million in extremely cheap protection money to ensure the party putatively pushing for single payer perpetually frustrates its voters by failing to effectively do so.
Donald Trump has made hay about how Democrats want to extend eligibility for the program they (allegedly) plan on putting in place to non-citizens, but he hasn’t launched much of a full frontal attack on the idea of Medicare for All more generally. If the campaign wants effective outreach to non-whites, this is the way to get it:
Trump claimed Bernie Sanders’ plan would hurt existing Medicare users. Hardly convincing, but not hard to pivot away from. Stick exclusively to criticizing how opening it up to the entire world will put Americans last.
Contrast it to a bold Trumpian initiative called Medicare for All Americans. Biden, who has pledged to veto Medicare for All if it comes across his desk, will find himself hopelessly outflanked with nowhere to go.
