Warren is the one to challenge Sanders. Lets put them up, side by side,

for the nation to see.

There is a con here, and the American public needs the chance to see, for real choice.

(I get we are waiting a couple more weeks to see how things shake out, and I think we need to wait a couple weeks. I am just jumping ahead so people can consider. I am not even bothered with a brokered convention if that is where this takes us.).

Democratic Party, our Democratic base, our candidates get behind Warren, the strong arm of who we are. Let us remember Pelosi and her fight the last two years. We should have had a woman President in 2016. Lets have one in 2020.

Sanders whole self is in hypocrisy and hypocrisy is never a win. His words when they suit him, and when they don't, he goes 180. There is not even a consideration of the ridiculous that we are suppose to accept.

I would be a hypocrite to run in the Democratic Party with all I have said. To...
I will release my medical records before a first vote, that is the only fair thing to do.

I really think seeing Warren this last week that she is the one.

I am not going to argue or try to convince anyone. I was elsewhere on the internet and saw some people I have known for a lot of years fall into the koolaid. It is what it is. I will die soon, so life is experiences. But it would be a wonderful opportunity for progression too, and righting the wrong of Trumps ego self running the nation.

The working poor and Sanders M4A.

Lets follow this thru even though we know Sanders can't get it passed.

I make $11.75 an hour in a high cost state. I cannot afford monthly living expense though I live dirt poor. And I am good with that. I do not have a lot of needs or wants. Food, roof over the head, pay my bills.

Still, I am looking for ways to reduce more because my cost of living exceeds my wage. I am old. I will not be hired elsewhere at a greater paying job, increasing monthly income. I am still throwing out apps, but I do not see it happening. To reduce monthly cost I went from ACA silver at $148 a month to ACA bronze at $1.11.

I am also taking my car insurance from full coverage of $600 to liability of $385.

Everything I can do to reduce monthly expense so my wage can cover expenses. Even a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner five days a week, cause food isn't that big a deal.

Every little penny is considered.

Sanders wants M4A. Think of the people without insurance, Sanders says. No. I say Sanders is thinking about the middle class. They are paying a higher cost, they are the ones Sanders wants to help because Sanders plan will cost me more in payroll tax and income tax and not be a mere $1.11 a month. That we can be sure of.

I guess I can have that peanut butter and jelly sandwich every other day.

So, when Sanders puts out a message to shame us for not backing his M4A plan because we are thinking about only ourselves instead of those without insurance, I ask him. What about me?

Medical records pledged by Sanders

Comprehensive medical history

Operative notes from any cardiac procedures performed

List of medications

CT scans for patients with aortic problems

Recent tapes and reports from diagnostic tests such as echocardiograms and cardiac catheterization

The tapes are important for our physicians to interpret your tests rather than relying just on the paper report. We may request other records depending on your specific diagnosis and what other testing or procedures you have had.

You can obtain your medical records yourself or with our help. Sometimes patients can get the records faster directly through their referring physician's office. Please note some medical offices charge a fee to provide you with your medical records.

You can start the process by calling your doctor's office to get a copy of your medical history and test reports. You also will need to get actual tapes from recent diagnostic tests you have had such as echocardiograms and cardiac catheterization.
