Let’s start off by saying that mistakes were made. The GOP, apparently having abandoned all hope where healthcare is concerned, began challenging various Democrats on Wednesday to come up with a plan of their own: Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Bill Clinton, and even Democrat-in-Name-Only Joe Manchin.
Now, Bernie Sanders has gone in to quite a bit of detail about his ideas for universal health care, Bill Clinton has certainly had some incredibly detailed ideas of his own, Elizabeth Warren is an advocate for single-payer, and Hillary Clinton…well…we’ll just let her tell you.

Let’s get this straight: they have the House, they have the Senate, they have the presidency, yet they are so starved for good ideas that they need to steal them from the people they said were destroying the country?
