It would have been nice if he’d dropped in a stanza about the necessity of Medicare of All, but who am I to critique anyone’s creative process?
I do think Sen. Booker could have gone one step further and illustrated the poem, but I know he’s probably pretty busy, so I took the liberty of doing it for him.
