  1. If we are always requiring health care, than the insurance we use to for the care is really no longer insurance. Anyways, the GOP plan is still shit, that will hurt the people with preexisting conditions and the poor the hardest. If this plan were to actually be signed into law, the GOP would get slaughtered in 2018. They need to implement my plan! Remove the preexisting conditions clause from private insurance. Fold all existing federal healthcare programs and money (including Medicaid) into Medicare. Anyone who was denied private insurance can enroll in Medicare and pay monthly premiums and copays. If you're low income there can be assistance to help you pay for your Medicare, but government assistance is prohibited from supplementing private insurance costs. Remove the tax incentive for employers to directly pay for/provide health insurance. Instead the tax incentive would be when the employer deposits money to the employee's health savings account. Employees can then use that money to either: Pay for medical services directly, buy private insurance, or pay for Medicare.
  2. It's a battle that can't be won - The GOP will then nuke the filibuster completely, which means the court will have a huge chance of going 6-3 in the GOPs favor when Ginsburg dies in the next year or two.
  3. From what I understand, if the Li-ion battery is installed in the device, it's ok. But if it's a "loose" battery (who carries around loose lithium ion batteries anyways?) the luggage will get rejected.
  4. Technically, anything can be an impeachable offense. As long as enough members of Congress agree that the president should be impeached, it can happen.
  5. Yeah. He should be charged with gun crimes.
  6. The reason you just give it to everyone is for simplicity's sake - fewer resources have to be used to verify and enforce who is entitled to get it. Are you a citizen/legal resident? Are you over 18? If you answered yes to these two questions, you'll receive UBI. Any UBI system that takes income into account will have to divert extra resources to fight fraud and result in more obfuscation of income.
  7. Ideally, every adult would receive that $20k, regardless if you made $1 or $1 million dollars a year.
  8. I support the idea of basic income, if it's paired with the elimination of other welfare programs. All adults, regardless of income or means, should receive it.
  9. Maddow really blew his load early on this one.
  10. I think the GOP will eventually come around to a public option. Shit like Ryancare is going to get them trounced in 2018.
  11. What would Jesus do?
