Here is exactly how incrementalism moderate democrats elected Donald Trump:
"Obamacare is like having a $5.00 coupon for a $3000.00 item"
That is poor people subsidizing health care for better off people. The government is responsible for making people poor because over the years laws have been changed, repealed and created to kill jobs while making it easier for Wall Street to make getting more money easier, faster and quicker. Drug technology has advanced to refining and creating more drugs that are priced inexorably out of the reach of poor people. Medicare co payments for some cancer drugs is over $200,000. Mostly people with expensive health insurance plans can afford those kinds of co-payments. Moderate Democrats overlook the poor people in favor of claiming victories for exclusive programs. Thank you moderate Democrats for electing Trump. Spending millions of dollars on sure win states and ignoring some states . Hillary spent 12.36 million dollars for each electoral vote in California.
“I’ve never seen a campaign like this,” said Virgie Rollins, a Democratic National Committee member and longtime political hand in Michigan who described months of failed attempts to get attention to the collapse she was watching unfold in slow-motion among women and African-American millennials.
Bottom bottom line Clinton barely beat Obama's votes in 2016 while Trump out performed Romney. Hillary remained stagnant by not losing any votes to Trump but Trump increased his totals.
Hillary lost WI to Obama's 2012 vote count by over 300,000.
Final tally Trump out performed Romney by over 3 million votes and Hillary fell short of Obama by 76000. If Trump had Romney's vote count Hillary would be President. Trump gained over 3 million more votes than Romney.
If Hillary had opened up the party to the middle class she would be President today. A moderate Democrat can't win while the lower classes suffer.
