    He didn't say he wanted them in ovens. He said they should go back and fix their countries they came from.

    I don't agree that is a good or smart tweet. It was xenophobic, but not racist.

    Calling everything one dislikes racist does everyone a disservice.

    "Tell the truth, I think, for a change," Carter told MSNBC when asked what advice he would give Trump.

    We can also agree Trump is very good at shooting himself in the foot. That's the life of the modern day conservative.

    Yes, we should not call something racist just because we don't like it. However, in this one particular case, it really was racism. And if you're going to say that he never mentioned race, then you could also say that in my hypothetical example, ethnicity is never mentioned. The point is that he used a racist trope.

    The definition of "racist" as "anyone who is white" is itself racist.

    We need to fix this country. The necessary first step is getting Trump out of the White House.

    No, that's what stupidity and a complete inability to control his mouth gets him.

    You haven't been able to point out a single thing that I've gotten wrong. But you seem to have difficulty understanding what's involved.

    This economy isn't likely to last until 2020. He's already had to bail out farmers. Thousands of auto workers are out of work due to his tariffs, which also mean that he's abandoned free market economics, and retail stores across the country are closing.

    How the Nation’s Healthcare System Can Improve

    The 2020 election is coming. And health insurers are worried.
    https://fortune.com/2019/03/25/medic...ate-insurance/
    A groundswell of support for Medicare for All among prominent Democratic presidential contenders has spooked the industry, with some candidates professing the private health insurance sector may (and even should) eventually be tossed into the dustbin of history.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders—author of a comprehensive Medicare for All bill—has never shied away from a fight with large corporations, and universal health care has long been one of his hobbyhorses. But candidates occupying a more centrist space in the Democratic Party, such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Cory Booker, have all cosponsored Sanders’s legislation.

    The bulk of the Sanders bill would be paid for by a 7.5% payroll tax on employers and 4% from workers’ paychecks. The current system of Medicare and Medicaid would be scrapped and replaced with a significantly more generous program. Everyone in the United States would be covered, no opt in or out.

    The big catch: You’d lose your current employer plan. “The Medicare for All bills proposed by Sanders … would effectively eliminate the role of private health insurance providers,” Larry Levitt, senior vice president for health reform at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, told Fortune in an interview. “The idea of eliminating an industry and companies that are this large is unprecedented.”

    Under the plan, private insurers would be banned from competing with government coverage, relegating them to the role of selling supplemental insurance—table scraps compared with the $600 billion feast that private insurance is today.

    Democratic politicians are finding themselves increasingly comfortable with that situation. Harris told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “Let’s eliminate all of that,” referring to the insurance industry (she later softened her stance). Gillibrand has called it an “urgent goal.”
