“The question is clearly referring to a single-payer system. There’s no way around that.”
Can’t you read plain English? Words mean what they say! The wording is:
“A government plan for all instead of private insurance?”
That does NOT mean a single-payer system. It means “a government plan for all instead of private insurance.”
“Also, the polls in some states asked voters about publicly funded college, which was broadly supported. Those are 2 of Sanders’ major proposals.”
No citation, therefore no credence awarded. Moreover, publicly funded colleges have been around since the Morrill Act of 1862. Mr. Sanders’ proposal is not at all new or original. My education was at publicly funded colleges.
I read the piece on the Green New Deal. I do not believe that it represents genuine support for Mr. Sanders. The Green New Deal is little understood and contains a great many riders that have nothing to do with climate change. There ***is*** serious concern about climate change and an urgent desire to take strong action quickly. The Green New Deal is merely a label that people identify with climate change policy. The article you cite makes this clear with its data on awareness of the Green New Deal; the majority of Democrats have heard only a little about the GND. And I very much doubt that many people are even aware of Mr. Biden’s proposals for dealing with climate change.
Again, this is all moot. Mr. Biden is the presumptive nominee.
