Still can't get over how @AHIPCoverage describes being a slave to your boss for health care as a happy "accident of history," like the discovery of beer.

What a pathetic organization.

How do you guys feel about the private health insurance lobby saying that it would be better to get a slightly nicer private health insurance plan than an actual raise? How fucked up is it that this is even a trade-off?
In other words, @AHIPCoverage likes #CoverageAtWork (i.e. job lock) because health insurance paid for by employers with pre-tax dollars is a gigantic subsidy to their parasitic and inefficient industry!
The @AHIPCoverage private health insurers think the primary reason for maintaining good health should be to make your boss happy and rich. #NotMakingThisUp
For the @AHIPCoverage lobbyists in the back of the room, This. Is. Not. A. Good. Thing.
A rational and effective health care system doesn't put the burden on employers to keep costs in check and ensure people have access to health care.

To borrow the words of @jeremycorbyn, "When they say we're a threat, they're right."

Yes, the #MedicareForAll movement is a threat to private health insurers who force patients to be slaves to their bosses for junk insurance.
My dear followers, how is #CoverageAtWork *a bad thing* for you and your families? Let me know!
