When a child fixes you with their eyes, they see everything about you in that moment. Leaders are able to sense when they are being seen and they connect. Great opportunities are fulfilled when leaders connect and we witness it happening.
The senate, sorely needing leadership, is letting greatness go wanting in a disappointing display of weakness. Will a leader emerge today? I’ll be watching and will see it all. I don’t want to be disappointed. CBO says strong public plan like Medicare will save tax payers $125B over 10 years. Single payer is the best solution from both a cost & coverage perspective. ================================================================
Senators do historical work when they are moved by the public to do the right thing and recognize the situation for the opportunity that it is. It will be great to see how the vote comes down on public option proposals.
Success for the Senate will be measured against the objectives defined by POTUS. Reduce cost, expand coverage and improve service. Expanding Medicare meets all these objectives. So where is a better alternative?
Joe Louis is taking to the senate today. You can run, but you can’t hide. Time to show what your made of.
The primary forces influencing votes in the senate are money, public pressure and ideology. Which of these can you leverage today?
