    but I have no confidence that Jane and Joe Q public or the media get it enough to resist demagoguery by the right.  Again, I am commenting on the psyche of the people viewing this issue play out and how that may impact the election.  I believe that healthcare is a right and in Medicare for all - but I tend to give a lot of weight to facts on the ground.  I know that makes me an outlier here.  It would be great if the Catholic clergy were visible on this - I saw  the DC Cardinal on Moring Joe this morning and he totally stepped in it by talking about why birth control isn't part of healthcare.  Visible clergy would have the unintended consequence of moving people against them.
