  1. Isn't she the one who said Obama voters were racist for not supporting Hillary?
  2. Top is still the same. Harris seems to be eating into Beto's support. Booker continues to wallow with the ones we know don't have a shot.
  3. LMAO
  4. IIRC, if enough candidates qualify and they need two debates then they're going to randomize the candidates so there isn't a main group and a kid's table group. Though if it randomizes them so the top candidates are in one debate then, yeah, no one is going to give a **** about the other one.
  5. Harris isn't doing that hot in her home state.
  6. I'm just going to stop it there. The top tax rate in Canada is 33%.
  7. It's mostly due to elective procedures. Otherwise their wait times are comparable to ours.
  8. If you want the Australian system then you need to first break private health insurance and then let it come back in a limited form. You're getting the order of operations wrong by trying to implement a public system while the private system is still firmly entrenched.
  9. Indeed. They aren't as good.
  10. I think it does that if you say you intend to vote for that candidate.
  11. They have an idea of what it is and have fixated on the slogan, yes, and that is why the Dem establishment is attempting to redefine what "all" means. Private health insurance and your job providing it, presuming it even does, is so ingrained in our psyche that most people can't imagine something better and saying you want to replace feels like when a parent tries to take their kid's safety blanket away. That is why, as I said, it's important to campaign on it and win people over, to show them that though they're losing their safety blanket they're getting something that actually secures them and frees them to pursue jobs they want instead of any one that offers health insurance.
  12. It'd be interesting to see how they'd do that. The 6th and 7th districts are already designed to crack significant blue strongholds in Dekalb and Gwinnett that have populations too large to put in a single district.
  13. You need to have the political will to campaign for it to convince people. That started during the 2016 primary and is why it's even in consideration now, to go along with many other left-wing positions (eg. wealth tax). Corporate Dems don't and never have had the will to campaign for much of anything. It's why they target half measures before starting and water them down from there when there is pushback (eg. Obamacare).
  14. That isn't really the point of that tweet. She bought herself an astroturf social media following to appear more popular than she actually is.
  15. Down goes another flavor of the month.
