House PROGRESSIVES just reelected Nancy Pelosi. Only corporate Democrats voted against her. #ForceTheVote was our best chance for a House vote on Medicare for all. The Democratic Party cannot be reformed. It’s time for a #PeoplesParty!

Pelosi wins Speakership for fourth time in dramatic vote

Heading into the vote, there were also open questions surrounding the intentions of several incoming progressive lawmakers — including Cori Bush (D-Mo.) and Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) — who had knocked off Democratic incumbents in the primaries and had declined to forecast how they’d vote in the Speaker’s race.

In the end, however, those newcomers declined to go after Pelosi, citing a need for Democrats to unite heading into the new Congress.

#ForceTheVote Town Hall

Dear progressive members of Congress,

We invite you to join us at a live town hall meeting on Wednesday at 8:30 pm ET to discuss forcing a vote on Medicare for all.

Tens of millions of Americans are struggling without health care in the middle of a pandemic and we have a fleeting opportunity to bring Medicare for all to the floor of the House for a vote. Medicare for all is overwhelmingly popular and forcing the vote has enormous support in the progressive movement. Please join thousands of your biggest supporters to discuss #ForceTheVote.

Ms. Wood’s daughter Charlie was born premature. The cost of keeping her alive has been devastating. It turned Ms. Wood from an ACA advocate into a Medicare for All advocate. Please listen to her testimony from last year’s committee hearings on #MedicareForAll. #ForceTheVote

It’s tough to condense #MyStory on why I believe in #ForceTheVote , but I gave it my best shot

The short version is that I’m tired of seeing people suffer in one of the most powerful countries in the world, and it’s time to hold our representatives accountable for change.

2 new members of the progressive ‚Squad‘ won’t say whether they’ll support Nancy Pelosi’s fourth bid for house speaker

(27.12.2020)

Reps.-elect Cori Bush and Jamaal Bowman on Sunday declined to state in a CNN interview whether they would support California Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s bid to be reelected as Speaker of the House of Representatives.

30.12.2020 - 03:30 [ Katie / Twitter ]

There’s no reason for a progressive to vote to confirm Pelosi as speaker again without concessions. Period. @AOC @AyannaPressley @IlhanMN @RashidaTlaib @PramilaJayapal @RoKhanna do what we elected you to do and force the vote! #ReplacePelosiJan3 #ForceM4ALLVote

30.12.2020 - 03:00 [ Tamburlaine / Twitter ]

You do realize that not only can the Squad #ForceTheVote on M4A, they can even #ReplacePelosiJan3 with *ZERO RISK* of a GOP Speaker? They need 5-8 holdouts. The GOP doesn’t have the votes. And this isn’t being discussed at all. Why?

House Progressives: #ForceTheVote on Medicare for All Now

Rep. Nancy Pelosi is running for her fourth term as Speaker of the House. The election is in the first week of January and this time, because Democrats lost seats in the House and were left with a slim majority, she needs votes from congressional progressives to get re-elected. ​

Pelosi is refusing to bring Medicare for all to the floor of the House for a vote in the middle of a pandemic that has killed 300,000 Americans.

Voters sent progressives to Congress to fight for Medicare for all and this is their fleeting moment of leverage. Establishment Democrats make demands of Pelosi for their votes and so should progressives. Wall Street makes demands of Pelosi for their support and so should progressives.

Dr. Cornel West and Jimmy Dore join the People’s Party Advisory Council, launch MPP organizing campaign to Force The Vote on Medicare for all

Public intellectual and Harvard professor Dr. Cornel West and political comedian Jimmy Dore have joined the People’s Party Advisory Council. Together with the Movement for a People’s Party, they are launching the Force The Vote petition and organizing campaign. The campaign aims to pressure The Squad and House progressives to refuse to vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Speaker until she publicly pledges to bring Medicare for all to the floor of the House for a vote. Nearly 10,000 people signed the petition overnight.

Dore hosted Dr. West on The Jimmy Dore Show Friday evening where they broke the news. “We’re joining forces with the Movement for a People’s Party. We are ForceTheVote.org,” said Dore. “There’s never a wrong time to do the right thing. And now is the time, in the middle of a deadly pandemic. There’s never been a better time to have a Medicare for all vote.”

The Revolutionary Struggle Is A Fight Between Movement And Inertia

(16.12.2020)

The pandemic and a Democrat-controlled House presents a once-in-a-century opportunity to shove hard toward getting Americans the same healthcare rights afforded to everyone else in every major country on earth and forcing all House Democrats who oppose it to expose themselves to their constituents instead of passing the blame to the Republicans. With things getting more and more desperate, waiting for the next once-in-a-century opportunity to even begin pushing is a ridiculous proposition.

Former Sanders spokesperson: Progressive base confused by ‚ambiguity‘ over how to replace

(18.12.2020)

In contrast, she said, “this question of whether Pelosi should be ousted altogether, and whether we have to do so because there’s not someone in the ranks, is a new one.”

“It’s an interesting conversation given that we’ve had now two years of these progressive ‘Squad’ members in office who came in really hot to do something about Nancy Pelosi and to threaten her leadership at that point,” she added.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rejects left-wing calls to force Pelosi to hold a ‚Medicare for All‘ vote in exchange for her vote for the speaker

(16.12.2020)

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is publicly rejecting those calls, saying that Democrats don’t have the votes to pass „Medicare for All“ in the House and there are other options the party has that would affect real change.

20.12.2020 - 23:20 [ Movement for a People’s Party / Twitter ]

There’s a feud on the political left right now. It all started when @jimmy_dore made a video arguing that House progressives should refuse to re-elect Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker unless she puts #MedicareForAll to a floor vote.
