13. "it could have been overhauled much more comprehensively rather than basically tweaking

the Republican framework."

So why do you assume that Sanders just "rushed it through without pausing to look at better alternatives?"

Why do you think Sanders and Warren voted yes?

Because there were no actual alternatives, and people need actual help now rather than purity tests. I was disappointed to hear that Sanders did not bother to vote on the first draft when he actually could have.

Why do you assume that there were actual better alternatives? Have you served in the Senate?

Why do you have such a low opinion of Sanders and Warren (and any other Democrats who voted for the bill) to assume that they refused better alternatives for the public that were available?

Can you also specify what those alternatives were?
