As a party, we must push for a future where every resident has the ability to thrive. That means we need a platform that works to rid our society of oppression and greed. Unfortunately, in my view this platform does not do enough. 2/2— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) August 16, 2020
I cast my DNC ballot last week. I’m proud to have voted for @BernieSanders, but I had to vote against the platform. My people are dying, & I cannot support a platform that does not include #MedicareForAll, which would save lives. Tens of thousands of lives. Literally. pic.twitter.com/pGIAhiPiXc— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) August 16, 2020
