In response to a confession. Yup, I understand all of that and I never said immigrants shouldn't be allowed insurance coverage. I'm saying it's absolute bullshit to charge working poor American citizens a penalty for not being able to afford ridiculously expensive insurance that doesn't cover jack shit, and then in the same breath say that people who are in the country illegally should get free coverage. That's what Biden is offering up and it's WRONG.

In response to a confession. Biden has said he wants to bring back the penalty to punish Americans, while providing free healthcare to illegal immigrants. I think that's what the OP was referring to?

A huge part of the problem is that Americans think that health care COSTS what they are being CHARGED for it. It doesn't. Ask.... shit, any other country in the world. You are being grossly overcharged for everything. No wonder Americans are so worried about how to pay for universal health care. They think health care costs a fortune. Not for the rest of the world, America. This is what your government has done to you, brainwashed you into thinking that is what it actually costs. You just don't know any better. Time to wake up and take a look at what's possible in other places across the globe. This is NOT as good as it gets, America. Do better.

In response to a confession. I agree with the ACA penalty, but I disagree with you on insurance for illegal immigrants. You realize that we all pay for their insurance anyway, right? I'm tired of people saying they don't want to pay for them (or anyone else who's uninsured). We already do! Why do you think a Band Aid at the hospital costs $20? Why do you think your premiums are so high? Because you're covering everyone else. We really need universal healthcare. Period. it works in just about every other industrialized nation. And, here's the kicker, it actually costs LESS than what we pay in the US. So you can pay less for healthcare, have the security of never losing your coverage, and have everyone covered for less than you pay now. I honestly don't know how people are against it. People talk about caravans. Well, there are actually caravans and bus trips of US citizens to Canada so they can get healthcare and prescription meds. And a lot of those people actually have insurance, but it's still cheaper in Canada.

Democrats don't keep losing based on being too centrist. The electoral system favors rural over urban. It comes down to having a candidate who has a message/platform people can believe and trust in. Trump's platform? Take on politicians and pander to people's base instincts-and his base is still lapping it up no matter how much he lies 100%

In response to a confession. People can vote for whomever they choose. It's none of your business. Welcome to democracy.

I wasn't a fan of Biden before, but he can go jump in a lake after saying he'd bring back Obama's penalty for not having insurance and that he'd enact healthcare for illegal immigrants. I had to pay that fucking penalty two years in a row. I was working at a job that didn't offer insurance and the ACA was over $500 a month. I couldn't afford insurance and had to take out fucking loans to pay the penalty. But sure, let's give free healthcare to people who are in the country illegally. I hate Trump, but he was right to remove the penalty. People don't NOT have health insurance because they're being flippant and irresponsible. They can't fucking afford it!

Have you ever considered the possibility that the Dems courting the center is why we keep losing? Gays + Feminists = almost half of the population, and young people are swinging *way* more progressive.

In response to a confession. A lot of those scum were children. I was in college during those years, studying sociology. We did an in depth study about unmanned drone strikes and, sorry, but you're wrong. Many of the people who were killed were never verified as the enemy. I'll never forget the interview we watched with a soldier who was ordered to strike, and seconds after he followed through with the order, 3 kids ran around the side of the building. They were killed. He eventually killed himself. As for the cages, they've existed for years. The migrants have been traveling here in caravans since around the Bush admin. It's a protest for how the USA has destabilized their countries. Children often travel alone, or are brought by gang members/drug runners to help with entry. The kids were held in these same facilities and the numbers have always been high. Not saying any of this to excuse trump, who obviously is a racist, but none of this is new. It's just more televised. This has needed fixed for a long time.

Amazing to see but Trump actually made a accurate fact based tweet today. Never thought he had it in him.
