The judges appointed by other Democratic presidents in less progressively friendly electorates says otherwise.
Plus Congress has a say, it isn't a unilateral decision. Including those progressives I'm Congress in which he will need their support.
And not sure how going 6-3 in the other direction for next few decades gets us closer. In fact it ends the dream. Even at 5-4 it's already a pipe dream until a conservative judge retires or passes.
The amount of influence courts have had on the ACA has been extremely minimal, as I expect would be the same with M4A. Now, the step you continue to breeze past of "some distance future where progressives get elected and put it into law" is the main issue.
And supporting the DNCs chosen corporate establishment candidate after they killed M4A doesn't give me hope that they won't do the same in the future.
They already lost once in 2016 and didn't change, if anything they've moved even further right. But now if they win with Biden they will suddenly listen to the progressive wing of the party rather than killing those policies? This literally makes no sense.
Supporting Biden sends them a clear message, you can kill M4A and you'll have my vote anyway. That's the message that you think ends with us having M4A? I don't.
There is nothing to indicate Joe's nominations would be any less favorable towards M4A than Trump's.
We've already witnessed the sort of conservative nominees Joe Biden has supported for the Supreme court and it's not bode well for the future.
Corporate judges are corporate judges regardless if a dem or a pub nominates them.
The current democratic leadership is as beholden to corporate America as the republicans.
There is no reasonable argument to be made that Joe Biden is likely to nominate judges that favor M4A. None.
