    Helps if you can see the ladder when you start swinging. I think that’s what Venec was getting at.

    Biden was way more lucid in this one-on-one than any of the others. Bernie couldn't crush him.

    Also I was pretty disappointed with most of his answers re: gorona. He could only repeat his talking points on necessity of things like M4A and paid leave (correct). But we're in a situation where even social democracy won't cut it. We'll probably need UBI-like measures before long and some form of war-time style central planning for this situation

    Biden didn't implode (he had a couple of mild senior moments) so he won by default. Sanders didn't have a great night, he's too wedded to his talking points which is great for message discipline but bad for beheading your opponent when he's full of shit.

    Biden seemed to lie. A lot. Sanders called him out a couple of times but he just lied more. The moderators and 'journalistic' analysis after the debate didn't even try to fact check.

    As an example Biden attacked medicare for all by pointing out that Italy's single payer system hadn't prepared them for the coronavirus, neglecting to mention that no medical system will hold up if the government doesn't instigate pandemic control measures until the health system is overwhelmed. But Bernie didn't point that out either so...

    Biden denied ever trying to cut social security despite calling for it to be frozen multiple times on video.

    At this point I'd much rather have someone like Yang or Gabbard who can actually understand current events and react intelligently in real time. Shit, kidnap that health minister from Singapore and make him President.

    Darkest timeline confirmed.

    Agree with the general sentiment.

    In the interests of fairness both candidates repeatedly stated that the public should be made whole for the costs of treatment/lost wages to cornavirus. Whether you believe them (cough Biden cough) or not is another issue.

    At a moment when the country is literally shutting down due to a pandemic let's all run and vote for the guy who is promising to veto medicare for all as too expensive.

    Fuck me.

    At one point Biden said "Single payer doesn't work, just look at Italy"

    The biggest cunt moment of the entire primary.

    WHO has ranked Italy as having the 2nd best healthcare in the world though. Everyone who thinks their country's healthcare would have done better is tripping.

    China and Korea got it under control with aggressive measures.

    Seriously? I would not have guessed that Italy was that highly ranked, I was expecting all the scandinavian countries, germany, australia and new zealand to top. Do you happen to know why Italy is that highly ranked?

    because they haven't spend 20 years cost-cuttting and privatizing in their healthcare sector.
