Why do liberal/progressives hark back to decades old events to supposedly support what they want today, and call conservatives regressives?

Again, if you ever want to know what Progressives are up to just listen to what they are accusing Republicans (Conservatives) of doing.

Then you and I heard different things, but then again, I'm not a Republican.

What I refer to is things like reparations: slavery happened 100s of years ago, but want people today, who had nothing to do with slavery, and don't own slaves, to pay for what their ancestors might have done.

Healthcare: addressing it in a method that may have been applicable 50+ years ago, which is not applicable today.

By that thinking, we shouldn't have electricity, but community fires relit at Samhain... after all, it was fuel efficient and didn't contribute to climate change...

Reparations.... That is only for the fringe idiots, none of the masses in either party go along with that BS, thank God

Healthcare is a different story. With big Pharm and insurance companies running the show, it has to be tweaked constantly to meet the needs of the masses....

Parsing...

EVERY Democrat candidate (with the one exception of Marianne Williamson) has supported actual government studies on reparations put forth by Sheila Jackson Lee (ie "FRINGE")

https://www.politico.com/2020-electi...y/reparations/

Quote:
Study reparations

Democrats who support studying reparations fall in line with a plan from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), who has proposed forming a commission to define reparations and suggest the form any compensation should take. Most presidential candidates have supported her legislation and said they would sign the bill if elected president.

Sen. Cory Booker has introduced similar legislation in the Senate. Sens. Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have all co-sponsored the bill.

Former Vice President Joe Biden hasn't endorsed either bill, but his communications director, Kate Bedingfield, told VICE this year that he thinks the U.S. should "gather the data necessary to have an informed conversation about reparations."
And try to take a guess on how a fringe study on a fringe topic would turn out...

I've said this before...

Everybody keeps arguing over who is going to pay for $45 Tylenols and $4000-a-night hospital beds but NO ONE is doing sh*t about the fact that $45 Tylenols and $4000-a-night hospital beds EXIST...

Easily remedied. Do away with any government mandates for insurance, remove the tax incentive for employers to provide insurance and get comprehensive tort reform. All of those excess charges would disappear quickly.

One more...

Get rid of the regulations that force hospitals and health facilities to have an "administrator" on hand (making 6 figures) whose only job is to muddle through the paperwork...
