Greta is right!


She does have a point, though--why can the US afford unlimited war and tax cuts but not (to save money overall on) Medicare for All?

The average American pays 60% of his income in all the federal and state taxes and fee they pay, that high enough.

That is literally the easiest question of all to answer.  Literally.

If the U.S. were ever to stop displaying it's military dominance over the entire world, then it would lose its financial domination over the entire world.

If the U.S. $ stops being the major reserve currency, then the U.S.A. could not run the massive trade deficits it runs because the rest of the world would be unwilling to fund them (via buying U.S. Treasuries).

If that were to happen then the U.S. could not afford to offer Medicare for all, or any other welfare programs.  It would literally end up a third world shithole.

THAT is why.  Do you comprehend it now?  You are Canadian, right?  You live in a country of 34 million people, in a country 3 times larger than the USA, and with massive levels of natural resources.  That is a world apart from running a country of 320 million people.

IF you have a brain, please engage it before your next retort.  TIA.

So this is why Thailand and Sweden have universal health-care?  Thanks for making this so clear!

I don't know about Thailand, or care. It is a 3rd world shithole.

As for Sweden, I am an expert.  Sweden has less than 10 million population and, like Canada, has a wealth of natural resources.  It is the sale of iron ore, copper, timber and other essential raw materials that finances Swedish society.

If you think Sweden is in any way a model of how a country should be run, may I suggest that you fuck off and move there.  Only then will you have any clue at all about what you are talking about.

Basic income tax rate: 32.65% (on income from $3k to $45k).
Higher income tax rate: 32.65% + 20% on income from $45 - 65k)
                                      32.65% + 25% on income from 65k and up).

VAT (sales tax): 25%.
Social security tax: 28% i.e. if an employee earns $10 an hour, the employer has to pay $2.80 an hour for social security on top of that.

As for free healthcare, in Sweden you have to pay $20 every time you see a doctor, the cost of prescription medication is the full cost of the medicine, and nobody gets paid for the 1st day they are off sick (no matter what your job title, or how much you earn).

On top of all that, 58% of Sweden's tax revenue is now being spent on housing immigrants and giving them free money every month, in exchange for no work.

Sounds like paradise, no?  :shrug:

That pretty much says it all. Every race had the same start in life as Whites from the beginning.  Look at Africa, and latin America and even the middle east how did they screw up?

­Lies.

And even if that were actually true, the average American would save money overall (and receive far better coverage) because they wouldn’t have to pay for shit insurance.

She has a valid point.

The Republicans have a bigger problem. They have lost everyone except their Trump loving base. Unless you love The Orange God Emperor and spend all your time foaming about Crooked Hillary, there is no place for you in the GOP.

And that means the issues people really care about, like health care and jobs (remember JOBS?) aren't getting discussed.

The Trump base doesn't care. They are happy to kneel before their Orange Demigod and openly admit they don't care that he lies to them. They only care about punishing liberals.

Now the Dems are picking up the issues Republicans once owned, like the economy and appear to be the only party that cares about fixing things.

Republicans should be losing more elections but they have gerrymandering and Fox News to help them.

But even that only goes so far. Republicans should be able to figure out that assholish behavior has diminishing returns, but they are Republicans. Independent thought is not in their wheelhouse.

:libduet:

Absolute bullshit.  Trump supporters are the ONLY people who DO care about jobs.  Getting illegal immigration under control, and re-instituting import tariffs on imported goods from the rest of the world is the way to create more jobs in the USA.

If you were literally mentally retarded that would be patently obvious to you.  As it is.... :mittens:

Sure, if you look at world history through a Eurocentric lens.

Read about how western colonialism destroyed the great cultures of Africa, India, and China.

Go ahead.

Republicans thought that :gwb: and :palin: were fit for office. 

They also backed Trump, who bragged that his followers were so dumb that he could shoot someone in the middle of the street and they would still follow him.

Republicans calling someone stupid has as much credibility as the Catholic church lecturing us about child safety.
