When Democrats propose policies that work have been in place for decades and work well in all of Europe, Australia, Japan, Canada, etc. and the Republican response is that it will turn us into Venezuela we need to point out this idiocy and fast. We can't let that zeitgeist take hold and it's already easy to spook Americans by simply invoking the word "socialism" to describe anything. It's like the "I don't want government healthcare a la ACA taking away my Medicare" BS we saw when we were debating ACA. We have to make sure that moderates and on the fence Republicans don't fall for this bullshit. #progressive #politics https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/pence-likens-democratic-health-care-and-energy-agenda-to-socialism/2019/03/01/5e522bfe-3c30-11e9-a2cd-307b06d0257b_story.html?utm_term=.277ce30ea380
