Americans have over $ 140 BILLION in medical debt — double what was previously known.
Because of our broken, for-profit health care system, people are drowning in debt just for getting sick.
Let’s solve this crisis once and for all with Medicare for All.

McConnell’s game plan:
1) Call for bipartisanship.
2) Dangle vague compromise.
3) Back out last-minute.
4) Threaten not to raise the debt ceiling.
5) Go on Fox News.
6) Bash Biden and Dems.
The goal is to run out the clock.

This is shameful. America’s ever-expanding medical debt crisis is immoral and inhumane.
In the richest nation in the world, no one should go bankrupt for being sick. We urgently need Medicare for All.https://t.co/RVmUTYD45b

Folks, we’ve seen this all before.
Republicans in Congress blow up the debt under a Republican president. And as soon as a Democrat enters the White House, they magically become spending hawks so they can hobble any proposed spending for Democrats’ programs.

How can Senate Republicans threaten not to raise debt ceiling (the amount government can borrow) for Biden’s proposed spending on families when they raised it to pay for the former guy’s tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations?
Because that’s who they are.
