    Where I come from, what we call (and what you and many others deride as) “political correctness” was called “being polite” or “being respectful”.
    Yeah, we have to put a stop to that. Right now.

    The smartest thing Poppy Bush ever said was to characterize Mr. Reagan’s idea of “trickle-down economics” as “voodoo economics”. The idea that rich people will create jobs because they get more money is indefensible. No one, regardless of how wealthy they are, creates jobs unless he/she thinks those jobs will profit them, and I see nothing wrong with that.
    But if the “little people” have no money to purchase goods and services, there will be no demand for more goods and services, and the wealthy will not create jobs. Simple economics.
    This is not to say that I am for giving away “free stuff”, which is a typical knee-jerk response.
    Also, let’s keep things in perspective: we are building tanks that we will never ever use, because the plant is in Ohio, and we know how important Ohio is in presidential elections. We pay millions for food stamps for people who work full-time at McDonald’s, and at Wal-Mart because their wages are not sufficient to keep the bill collectors at bay. This and many many other examples of corporate welfare cost the US taxpayer far more than all the welfare cheats that you can muster.
    “Job-killing regulations”? We deregulated the trucking industry: no more owner-operators….only a few large firms to work for. We deregulated the airlines: remember Braniff? Eastern? National? Pan-Am? TWA? All gone, and the ones who survive are in and out of bankruptcy. We deregulated the banks…..remember 2008?
    So, the right answer is to increase spending while cutting taxes and getting rid of regulation…..stupid is as stupid does.

    Regardless of how poor a candidate Hillary Clinton is, regardless if all the claims made by the Republicans are true, she is still far and away more qualified in terms of knowledge, connections, and temperament than Donald Trump.
    Trump is intentionally ignorant, and appeals to those who are the same. Trump is a thin-skinned bully, who is more interested in trying to shame those who do not love him than anything else. He should not be class president, let alone president of the United States. He has emboldened racists, white supremacists, Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan. There is a reason why white folks in Texas took their big guns and their confederate battle flags (“it’s not hate, it’s heritage”….right…and when I see a Nazi flag, I think Oktoberfest!) to stand out front of the NAACP and state that White Lives Matter. There is a reason why David Duke has decided the time is right for him to again run for Senate as a Republican.
    Mark my words: if Trump wins, mosques will burn to the ground frequently enough to remind us of the black churches which were burned in the 50s and 60s.
    I think Ms. Clinton has way too much baggage. I don’t think she’s capable of beating too many competitors as a result. But she’s a shining star compared to the quicksand that is Donald J. Trump, and if stopping the Trump train requires me to hold my nose and vote for her, that’s exactly what I (and many like-minded Americans) will do.

    " Increasing coverage while decreasing premiums defies third grade arithmetic."

    And this differs from cutting taxes while increasing spending how? I’m not saying that either policy is economically sound, but there are a lot of angry people sitting in glass houses in both houses of Congress.

    “Then he alludes to something more up his sleeve. But he doesn’t want to telegraph his plans, so his great ISIS busting move will remain a secret.”

    See Richard Nixon’s claims for a “secret plan” to end the war in Vietnam. Everything old is new again.

    Your posts should be required reading. Not only are you perceptive about the relative values of our different countries’ approach, but you have personal insight as to how it works.

    Well stated.

    Sorry it took so long to reply. What you describe is illegal behavior, and you can take it up with your insurance company. I hate them, but admire their ability to put the screws to their member doctors.
    Unless the rules are different in other disciplines, this kind of violation could get the doctor(s) kicked out of the plan. And once you’re asked to leave one plan, many other plans follow.

    There’s a reason David Duke (former Imperial Wizard of the KKK) is running for Senate in Louisiana (as a Republican….). He states that it’s because “majority people” are now not afraid to speak their minds in agreement with the KKK’s principles.
    Thanks, Mr. Trump. Another bullet point in your list of legacies.
    Make no mistake: if Trump wins, mosques will be burned to the ground in numbers that will remind us of the days when black churches burned in the South during the fifties and sixties.

    Read the article. I was also surprised. Interesting to see that Mr. Steele did not see himself as part of the reason that Mr. Trump needed to blow up the party.

    Many people in this country are one heart attack away from being homeless. This was true before Obamacare. It is true now.
    Every industrialized country except the US has universal health care. All systems have flaws. But we are exceptional, aren’t we? Can we not examine all the systems that are in place, implement the good parts, and work to minimize the bad ones?
    And for those who point to VA as not working, I do agree. This has less to do with the setup and more to do with the lack of responsibility and accountability of those in charge (including Congress). If the American people assume that the government will always screw things up, therefore we must live with it, more than health care will go down the sewer. If we allow slack behavior, we deserve it.
