Columnist Dana Milbank deems millions of Bernie Sanders' Democratic voters to be the “tea-party” which will bring the Democratic Party down over single-payer health care. The Republicans lost their way for many reasons – one of which is dancing to the tune of corporate donors and not listening to the voters.
Rank-and-file Democrats want institutional change in the Democratic Party; we no longer want a privileged few leading our party nor our government. Real democracy is about ideas and ideals. Note the unprecedented protests when it became clear that Republicans do want to deprive many of us of health insurance. The voters are speaking and they want a “better deal” — single-payer, Medicare care for all.
