Are we talking about what people want or are we talking about what's extreme? Please pick one. Nationalizing an industry is an extremist position.

Majority of Americans want it? It's extreme. Fringe billionaires don't want it? It's moderate.

What makes anyone think the majority of Americans want single player health insurance?

For one, what is a current Medicare beneficiary going to get with a tax increase just to get what they already have?

Two, why would a worker who gets good health insurance from his/her employer want it from the feds instead?

These are two completely unnecessary changes for most voting Americans. And because of that, it is an extreme position, thought up by dopey people like Bernie Sanders who is a one-trick pony who just wants to stick it to corporations

The nation didn't tax it own citizens wages for over 150. Jefferson proudest success was not placing any harsh taxes on the individual in the United States
Sorry I stand by the founder not the group of oligarchs that have resulted in 98% of the value of our currency being destroyed and record amount of debt.
When TonyKojima says Joke Post that means your statement is 100% correct.

The good old days of Jefferson before we were ruled by oligarchs.

taxes are not theft

Open borders would be a good example of an extreme leftist position.

no it isnt. leftists reject the state.


Hahahahahah, no.

Anarchists reject the state.

Leftists love the big state (and someone else to fund it - and if not available someone to shoot when the state fails).

Conservatives b**** and moan about "left-wing extremists" and "commies" all the time, yet these people dont have any actual political power. There are hardly any left-wingers in congress, on the other hand, there are plenty of right-wing extremists there, conservatives elected them.
So there is a difference, democrats dont elect extremists, GOP is now run by them.
Lock her up!

Are you arguing that most workers get good health insurance from their employers? And that this insurance is equal or less expensive to what single-payer would cost?
