Again, the UK is a perfect model to see what will happen and I can live with that - but I'm also not poor so I won't be waiting for a bed.

Reminded me of the old George Carlin Divorce Game riff: “And now let’s meet our contestants, Raoul and Congolia Breckenridge! Raoul is a pearl diver from Yuma who’s been out of work for some time now. Congolia’s hobbies are collecting foreign tennis balls and knitting humorous cummerbunds. And together they make napalm for a local right-wing group.”

Hey, she said Stein was a Russian asset in 2016 as well. Darn it, I purposely tried not to vote for a Russian asset - they're just everywhere apparently. :ohno:

She’s angry because the Russia collusion narrative that HER CAMPAIGN STARTED fell flat and now she’s lashing out

"Almost" being the key word.

The correct spelling and grammar, the heated yet rational and sane tone, the beyond 5th grade emotional level, and the pointedness without rambling and childish name-calling sort of rule out the Donald as the author.

CID, is she qualified for a cabinet position?

She also might make an interesting VP candidate. Conks don’t seem to mind her as much.

I'm also realistic that the discussion for the next century or so then will be how come the people with money go outside the system to get their health care and how come people without money are stuck in a health care system that doesn't offer the same levels of service that the private rich people's one does. You know, like the UK has been arguing about for 70 years. :coffee:

A bundle of stupid. Get the gov out of health care. Do you actually want more corruption and less health care for everyone except the black immigrant they use on the public service ads to get you to emotionally agree.

Oh yea, almost forgot, common core and the “news” are designed to educate you ignorant but emotionally agreeable. You can’t help it you got edumicated.

In one of the very first debates, she wore all white and had a neckline just low enough to show a hint of cleavage. About 30 minutes in, when they finally got to her, she had sheen of perspiration in her little lady valley. It was pretty hot. I forget what she actually said. But it looked better than what Warren said.

Serious question...In what specific ways has Medicare driven up the cost of healthcare or reduced services?
