Bernie Sanders has been hospitalized for ("mild") heart surgery. I'm
wondering which comprises the biggest blow to his campaign: the surgery
itself, or how so few news outlets seem to think it a top story...

A stent -- or, in his case, two stents -- is not a big deal. I guess
you could call it "heart surgery" if you like, but they didn't have to
open Sanders up to do it.

Yeah, I wondered if, even with the "mild", I'd overstated. But then,
right there on my local nondescript radio station, came "heart surgery".

No Facebook posts about it, nor is it trending on The Twitter.
It's almost as if nobody cares.

That's the phrase the AP used, and I'm here to tell you that
broadcasters frequently depend on the way the wire puts things when the
poor sap reading and writing the stuff has no idea about it. "Heart
surgery" is not wrong, but you could reasonably take it as a bit of an
exaggeration. On the radio, I would have called it a "procedure" and
then described it briefly.

Is it a top story? It's one of them, for sure, and of course people
are going to want to know how he is.

This should not keep Sanders sidelined for long. Of course it's going
to prompt people to think about his age and fitness, and that's
something he'll have to confront.

Since early tonight, the wires and the TV have been calling it a
"procedure." My mad journalizm skillz are intact.

So what - that's nothing Reagan and Trump had to overcome which they
did. By all means criticize his politics but it is highly unlikely
Bernie has a date with the Grim Reaper any time soon.

At 78? Think again. BTW there was no shortage of people who
questioned Reagan's fitness and mental acuity. They were simply
outvoted.

And of *course* this is going to cause people to wander about Bernie's
fitness for office. How could it be otherwise? That's how this stuff
works. Some of it is going to slop over onto Biden and Warren, who are
both in their 70s.

I'm old enough to remember all those discussions. No question these
issues affected some people's votes but at the end of the day we know
who won. Reagan even engaged in self-deprecated humor on this point
even when he was on a stretcher following his shooting ("Sorry honey I
forgot to duck!")

As for "stopping over" it's been said about pretty much any candidate
north of 70 years in recent decades.

I don't think so. Sanders' base of support isn't going to support any
other Democratic candidate for nomination. A whole lot of them went to
Trump in the 2016 general election.

They just don't care about his age or whether he'd be a good president.
They just support the ideas he stands for. They've demonstrated their
willingness to support people who have turned out to be truly lousy
elected officials.

<sigh>

This is regretfully true. What is frustrating is how self-defeating
it is. Do Sanders' supporters really believe in a progressive
agenda? Well, getting Trump elected has achieved the total far
opposite.

No, hancock, they truly believe in the populist crap Sanders spouts,
which is why a lot of them voted for Trump in the 2016 general election.
There's no strongly united progressive base. Supporting Sanders isn't
the same thing as supporting the Progressive Agenda.

Obviously, I was talking about how Bernie-ites support people like Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez in Democratic primaries, none of whom are actually
Democrats.

I really wasn't talking about the Progressive Agenda nor Trump.

Inserting things into your heart is never "mild"... especially not at
that age.

But, that said... he'll probably be up and out in a day or so.

You're sent home the same day you have the procedure in the UK, provided
you have an adult to accompany you and stay with you overnight. If you
don't, it's an overnight stay and you're packed off home the next morning.

No need to get bogged down in semantics Mr. Pig -
you can stick a fork in Bernie's campaign - he's done.
The combination of his age, crazy, angry "old man" rants
and health problems has finished him.

Bernie and Pocahontas are fighting for the same block
of far left wing Socialists. She is surging and the
majority of left wing loons will swing over to her.

Which is good news because she will definitely
lose to President Trump in 2020.

There are always some risks to a cardiac catheterization. And they're
uncomfortable... but generally safe.

I can only speak from personal experience. Shoving a tube up your groin
and into your heart isn't fun.

But it beats cardiac arrest. Bernie's stents should be good for a
decade at least.

Sanders presidential campaign pivots health scare to Medicare for All message
Simon Lewis OCTOBER 2, 2019
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-sanders-medicare/sanders-presidential-campaign-pivots-health-scare-to-medicare-for-all-message-idUSKBN1WH2DC


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential election campaign on Wednesday sought to use news the candidate had a heart procedure to highlight the benefits of his trademark Medicare for All healthcare plan.

Sanders’ campaign canceled campaign events and pulled TV ads after the 78-year-old U.S. senator had two stents inserted into an artery after he experienced discomfort during a campaign visit to Nevada on Tuesday.

The candidate would rest for a few days after the relatively common procedure, his campaign for the November 2020 presidential election said.

Sanders’ speechwriter, David Sirota, said in a daily newsletter that the unexpected medical procedure was “a perfect example of why the United States needs to join the rest of the world and pass Bernie’s Medicare for All legislation.”

Sirota cited a 2018 paper by researchers at the London School of Economics that found cardiac implant devices cost up to six times more in the United States than in some European countries with government-run healthcare systems.

Sanders advocates an approach that would extend the existing Medicare program for Americans aged over 65 to all Americans and largely eliminate the private insurance industry.

Sirota argued the gulf in price was in part due to the U.S. healthcare system’s “complex web of payers - rather than a single-payer Medicare for All system that can negotiate better prices.”

As many as 1 million Americans a year get stents, a procedure that involves inserting a balloon-tipped catheter to open blockage and deploy tiny wire-mesh tubes to prop open the artery.

“I’m feeling good. I’m fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover,” Sanders tweeted on Wednesday afternoon, his first public statement since the procedure.

“None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!”

I was thinking that Sanders' only option at this point is to transform
this event -- i.e., this publicity, supposedly never "bad" -- to his
advantage. This seems a worthy try on such short notice...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential election campaign on Wednesday sought to use news the candidate had a heart procedure to highlight the benefits of his trademark Medicare for All healthcare plan.
Sanders’ campaign canceled campaign events and pulled TV ads after the 78-year-old U.S. senator had two stents inserted into an artery after he experienced discomfort during a campaign visit to Nevada on Tuesday.
The candidate would rest for a few days after the relatively common procedure, his campaign for the November 2020 presidential election said.
Sanders’ speechwriter, David Sirota, said in a daily newsletter that the unexpected medical procedure was “a perfect example of why the United States needs to join the rest of the world and pass Bernie’s Medicare for All legislation.”
Sirota cited a 2018 paper by researchers at the London School of Economics that found cardiac implant devices cost up to six times more in the United States than in some European countries with government-run healthcare systems.
Sanders advocates an approach that would extend the existing Medicare program for Americans aged over 65 to all Americans and largely eliminate the private insurance industry.
Sirota argued the gulf in price was in part due to the U.S. healthcare system’s “complex web of payers - rather than a single-payer Medicare for All system that can negotiate better prices.”
As many as 1 million Americans a year get stents, a procedure that involves inserting a balloon-tipped catheter to open blockage and deploy tiny wire-mesh tubes to prop open the artery.
“I’m feeling good. I’m fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover,” Sanders tweeted on Wednesday afternoon, his first public statement since the procedure.
“None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!”
I was thinking that Sanders' only option at this point is to transform
this event -- i.e., this publicity, supposedly never "bad" -- to his
advantage. This seems a worthy try on such short notice...
Of course Sanders has much better insurance than what he wants to
foist on us.

wondering which comprises the biggest blow to his campaign: the surgery

You do enjoy typing in circles, don't you? Here it is again: Sanders
is now running about saying his heart attack demonstrates why we need
Medicare for all but he can't speak to that since he has far superior
coverage. Additionally if he does force Medicare for all on us, he
will ensure that he exempts himself from it to keep his superor
healthcare. Summary: If Medicare for all is so necessary and vital,
why does he want to force it on all of us yet it's not good enough for
*him*?

do(, he's doing exactly what I stated.
Yes. So, your complaint is either that his insurance is unfairly good
or that ours is (would be) unfairly bad -- which would be addressed by
worsening his or by improving ours. And since 'worsening his' doesn't
have a point that I can see, 'improving ours' seems to be what you're
advocating ... i.e., that he should give us *more* free medical care.
You do enjoy typing in circles, don't you? Here it is again: Sanders
is now running about saying his heart attack demonstrates why we need
Medicare for all but he can't speak to that since he has far superior
coverage. Additionally if he does force Medicare for all on us, he
will ensure that he exempts himself from it to keep his superor
healthcare. Summary: If Medicare for all is so necessary and vital,
why does he want to force it on all of us yet it's not good enough for
*him*?
Because he's concerned about the well-being of people who don't have,
and can't afford, the quality of coverage Medicare provides. Duh.

Bernie Sanders has been hospitalized for ("mild") heart surgery. I'm
wondering which comprises the biggest blow to his campaign: the surgery
itself, or how so few news outlets seem to think it a top story...
Sanders presidential campaign pivots health scare to Medicare for All message
Simon Lewis OCTOBER 2, 2019

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential election campaign on Wednesday sought to use news the candidate had a heart procedure to highlight the benefits of his trademark Medicare for All healthcare plan.
Sanders’ campaign canceled campaign events and pulled TV ads after the 78-year-old U.S. senator had two stents inserted into an artery after he experienced discomfort during a campaign visit to Nevada on Tuesday.
The candidate would rest for a few days after the relatively common procedure, his campaign for the November 2020 presidential election said.
Sanders’ speechwriter, David Sirota, said in a daily newsletter that the unexpected medical procedure was “a perfect example of why the United States needs to join the rest of the world and pass Bernie’s Medicare for All legislation.”
Sirota cited a 2018 paper by researchers at the London School of Economics that found cardiac implant devices cost up to six times more in the United States than in some European countries with government-run healthcare systems.
Sanders advocates an approach that would extend the existing Medicare program for Americans aged over 65 to all Americans and largely eliminate the private insurance industry.
Sirota argued the gulf in price was in part due to the U.S. healthcare system’s “complex web of payers - rather than a single-payer Medicare for All system that can negotiate better prices.”
As many as 1 million Americans a year get stents, a procedure that involves inserting a balloon-tipped catheter to open blockage and deploy tiny wire-mesh tubes to prop open the artery.
“I’m feeling good. I’m fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover,” Sanders tweeted on Wednesday afternoon, his first public statement since the procedure.
“None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!”
I was thinking that Sanders' only option at this point is to transform
this event -- i.e., this publicity, supposedly never "bad" -- to his
advantage. This seems a worthy try on such short notice...
Of course Sanders has much better insurance than what he wants to
foist on us.
Your complaint is that he's not giving *enough* free medical care?
No. Please read what I wrote again, this time for comprehension.
No. Please *write* what you wrote again ...maybe without 'foist'.
Nope. It's correct the way it is. Please try reading again.
Sanders has much better insurance than what he wants to foist on us.
That accuses hypocrite Sanders of giving us *lesser* insurance -- an
unusual complaint from an anti-socialism acolyte.

and exempts himself from "Medicare for all" (which politicians always
do(, he's doing exactly what I stated.

multi-millionare, spends all his time raving about the "wealthy".

Bernie Sanders has been hospitalized for ("mild") heart surgery. I'm
wondering which comprises the biggest blow to his campaign: the surgery
itself, or how so few news outlets seem to think it a top story...
Sanders presidential campaign pivots health scare to Medicare for All message
Simon Lewis OCTOBER 2, 2019

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential election campaign on Wednesday sought to use news the candidate had a heart procedure to highlight the benefits of his trademark Medicare for All healthcare plan.
Sanders’ campaign canceled campaign events and pulled TV ads after the 78-year-old U.S. senator had two stents inserted into an artery after he experienced discomfort during a campaign visit to Nevada on Tuesday.
The candidate would rest for a few days after the relatively common procedure, his campaign for the November 2020 presidential election said.
Sanders’ speechwriter, David Sirota, said in a daily newsletter that the unexpected medical procedure was “a perfect example of why the United States needs to join the rest of the world and pass Bernie’s Medicare for All legislation.”
Sirota cited a 2018 paper by researchers at the London School of Economics that found cardiac implant devices cost up to six times more in the United States than in some European countries with government-run healthcare systems.
Sanders advocates an approach that would extend the existing Medicare program for Americans aged over 65 to all Americans and largely eliminate the private insurance industry.
Sirota argued the gulf in price was in part due to the U.S. healthcare system’s “complex web of payers - rather than a single-payer Medicare for All system that can negotiate better prices.”
As many as 1 million Americans a year get stents, a procedure that involves inserting a balloon-tipped catheter to open blockage and deploy tiny wire-mesh tubes to prop open the artery.
“I’m feeling good. I’m fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover,” Sanders tweeted on Wednesday afternoon, his first public statement since the procedure.
“None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!”
I was thinking that Sanders' only option at this point is to transform
this event -- i.e., this publicity, supposedly never "bad" -- to his
advantage. This seems a worthy try on such short notice...
Of course Sanders has much better insurance than what he wants to
foist on us.
Your complaint is that he's not giving *enough* free medical care?
No. Please read what I wrote again, this time for comprehension.
No. Please *write* what you wrote again ...maybe without 'foist'.
Nope. It's correct the way it is. Please try reading again.
Sanders has much better insurance than what he wants to foist on us.
That accuses hypocrite Sanders of giving us *lesser* insurance -- an
unusual complaint from an anti-socialism acolyte.
Is Sanders on Medicare or something better? If he has better coverage
and exempts himself from "Medicare for all" (which politicians always
do(, he's doing exactly what I stated.
Yes. So, your complaint is either that his insurance is unfairly good
or that ours is (would be) unfairly bad -- which would be addressed by
worsening his or by improving ours. And since 'worsening his' doesn't
have a point that I can see, 'improving ours' seems to be what you're
advocating ... i.e., that he should give us *more* free medical care.
You do enjoy typing in circles, don't you? Here it is again: Sanders
is now running about saying his heart attack demonstrates why we need
Medicare for all but he can't speak to that since he has far superior
coverage. Additionally if he does force Medicare for all on us, he
will ensure that he exempts himself from it to keep his superor
healthcare. Summary: If Medicare for all is so necessary and vital,
why does he want to force it on all of us yet it's not good enough for
*him*?
Because he's concerned about the well-being of people who don't have,
and can't afford, the quality of coverage Medicare provides. Duh.
You mean the "quality" that he exempts himself from? Duh.
Well, I often *hear* that cons don't understand helping those less
well-off than themselves, but I've seldom seen it in the wild like this...
Amazing how you continue to ignore Sanders' hypocrisy in favor of your
own narrative.
Troll time. I'm out...
Right. You spend all your time ducking the subject but I'm the
troll...

Right on. Too bad his other policies positions prevent me from voting for him.

Wait, I thought the "knock" on Bernie is his godless socialism,
with socialized medicine as its evil beating heart...
My position on any issue depends on the issue, not the politician
or party.

It's just unexpected to hear someone dislike Sanders while approving of
the centerpiece of his socialism.

I’m all for commie-pinko socialized medicine but at the same time,
I’m all for eliminating virtually all weapon laws short of WMDs and
I'm opposed to the race/gender war the politically correct Left
keeps shoving down our throats.

I don’t need a politician or political party to tell me what to think.

Or that he has full health coverage.
