The clock is ticking on the Democratic primaries, and America’s under-performing healthcare system has never been a more important issue.
In 2016, both the GOP and Democratic fields were crowded. Obama was ending his eight-year term in office, and both sides of the political aisle were revving up their campaign engines to make a gun for the White House.

Remember when Chancellor Palpatine was granted emergency powers in Star Wars? This is a lot like that, only our “wartime enemy” is now the deadly respiratory virus COVID-19, instead of the fictional Confederacy of Independent Systems.
Even with a campaign for the Democratic nomination on the line, Bernie Sanders has demonstrated a willingness to put partisan politics aside to meet the threat of the COVID-19 crisis.
