I suggest death panels 

I get the joke, but it truly is an issue; we spend billions of dollars a year on very expensive care on people who have no chance of recovery, largely because if someone is well insured, it only takes one family member unwilling to let somebody go insisting on heroic measures. At some point it needs to be addressed. I know first hand how hard it can be; and often times family physicians are reluctant to be honest with family members holding on to desperate hope.

I wasn't kidding 

 

There is a ton of cost after someone is clearly near the end

Medicare picks up 80%, unless they’re in long term care. That’s all insurance at that point, or it falls on the individual who of course dies and then it’s back on all of us. Insurance is a total scam. Simplify the system already.

Social Liberal, Fiscal Conservative Voters Preferred Trump

 

February 5, 2019 at 9:26 am EST By Taegan Goddard 20 Comments

 

Nate Silver: “We do see, however, that it is a natural group for independent or third-party candidates to pursue. On average between the various issue combinations, 8 percent of socially-liberal-but-fiscally-conservative voters went for candidates other than Clinton and Trump in 2016, a bit larger than the overall third-party vote in 2016, which was around 6 percent.”

 

“But the headline is that, when choosing between the major-party candidates, these voters were more likely to go for Trump than Clinton. Among the 25 combinations of socially liberal and fiscally conservative views, Trump won the most votes 19 times, Clinton did so five times, and there was one draw. And on average between the 25 combinations, Trump won 52 percent of the vote to Clinton’s 40 percent. That’s not a huge margin: a 12-point edge among 16 percent of the electorate. But it adds up to enough voters that, if all of them had gone for a third party instead, Clinton would have won Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Florida, and therefore the Electoral College.”

Schultz is a threat to dimms because he is practical and not a loon. He made reference to Kamala Harris' comment that we should abolish the insurance business.

Your socialist clown show is the reason somebody like him can't run as a democrat. Your obsession with color and race or vagina vs cock. Your party is a fucking joke.

If the left wasn't so far off the grid to the left a guy like Schultz could be a real viable candidate for the Dems.

Howard Schultz Asks Audience to Clap

 

February 8, 2019

 

Washington Post: “The ticketed crowd of several hundred seemed at times uncertain about whether it was witnessing an academic lecture or a political barnstorm, with only a few attempts at applause during his remarks. Twice Schultz found himself asking the audience to clap, first after he praised the university for its efforts to control tuition costs and later when he pledged to release his tax returns if he declared himself a candidate.”

I don't know anything about him, but everyone that knows him says he is a total asshole.

Insurance is nothing more than a racket.

Always has been. They actively seek to not pay out legitimate claims all the time.
