Haha, I will greatly appreciate watching her go down in flames.

Democrats need to pick better people to run, if she is the best of the best for their party then we might as well not even have an election.

    What I don't get is why hasn't Trump even threatened Mexico, the country he said would pay for his wall?

    Trump could shut the border until Mexico writes a check to pay for his wall. That would get their attention.

    Instead he shuts our government and penalizes our country and our citizens. Now, he is threatening to do that again. Obviously he has no winning strategy because he'll get stuffed on that again.

    Why hasn't he shut the border to get his money from Mexico?

      Short answer: It would crush our economy and not result in Mexico paying.

      Mexico was NEVER going to pay for the wall and anyone who bought into that particular Trump lie is just stupid.

      Even Trump knew Mexico would never pay. The transcript of his first conversation with the president of Mexico revealed that. I'm sure you can find it on Google if you are really interested.

          I don't know if your $155 billion number is correct but, even if it is, why would it be smart to spend an additional $ 5.7 billion on a wall that does not decrease the inflow of illegal aliens?

          On net I believe illegal aliens contribute to the US. Even the illegals who have worked at Trump's golf resorts have been paying taxes for years. And they helped Trump and his family make money. They probably also picked the lettuce in your refrigerator and helped clear the bug trees in your neighborhood.

          The number of illegal crossings of the southern border is at an all time low and most who do cross come in through regular ports of entry (border crossings). More wall does nothing to stop them. Democrats will offer plenty of money for more border agents and better technology at ports of entry and elsewhere. The most important improvement would be better technology to track those who overstay their visas. That requires computer programs and people, not walls.

    Political party lines are NOT mentioned anywhere in the entire scope of The Constitution. It only says we will have a Republican Form of Government. That does not mean a party line of Government either. Sadly millions would rather believe the party line lies from all political party lines because it makes them feel like they belong. George Washington in his First Inaugural Address warned The People about the danger of Political Party Lines. The Constitution was put together specifically to control Government NOT We The People but through brain washing the Citizens today have it backwards as do the vast majority of Politicians.

          Heaven help us if she is elected because she is a woman and or she is black or if she is a democrat black woman. We need to vote for someone who has common sense, who is intelligent and who has the best interest at heart for all Americans. Trump was a poor choice although he has created jobs and he is concerned about our porous borders. And, Hillary was a poor choice. No choices in 2016. But as I said, I would having a hard time accepting Kamala Harris.

Trump's approval rating is at an all-time low of 37% while in-house democrats....34 %.
Do you know why? Nancy Pelosi and Chuck during the government shutdown is the main reason I'm coming up with. Our political system has turned into an embarrassment. Trump's antics are expected by most, but nasty Nancy is the icing on the cake.
The fighting between the two parties is making many me madder and madder. My wife and I are discussing what country would be a nice place to retire in, and we WILL be leaving. This is just sickening.

    It is a mistake to think blame for the shutdown is shared equally by Trump and Pelosi. Trump and Trump alone shutdown the government. He and the Republican House rejected at the last minute a funding compromise agreed to in December and passed by the Senate.

    Once Trump resorted to extortion by shutting down the government, Pelosi had no choice but to dig in on wall funding. For the same reason you don't pay off terrorists, you should never yield to extortion. If you do, then every disagreement provokes a new extortion.

    Trump turns out to be an unreliable deal maker and the blame lies wholly with him.

Well, a few things are clear:

1. Most commenters have not listened to Harris' speech. If you had, you'd have noticed it is not filled with hate or partisanship.

2. Harris has a good command of the issues and is left of center but not nearly as far left as Warren, AOC and many of the crazy lefties. I think she would do well among independents and Republicans fed up with Trump's chaos and stupidity.

3. Harris has likeability. This is a quality that turned out to be key in Trump vs. Clinton and Bush vs. Kerry. In both of those races the less qualified candidate won because he was more likable. IMO, Harris is both qualified and likable.

4. Harris will have to fight against the disadvantage of being a woman. As much as that shouldn't be a factor, one only has to read comments on thepinetree to realize there is a segment of the population that will never vote for a woman no matter how smart and qualified she is. Many posters are so afraid of a strong woman that they retreat into rude comments, much like a socially awkward 8th grader with a bad case of acne.

      The party will either allow impeachment, or resignation after the Mueller report is out.
      To continue to support a traitor, the evidence is overwhelming showing Russian collusion and influence over tRump, and many Republicans.
      The GOP is fully pro Russia, the vote last week in the Senate by Republicans to ease sanctions on some Russian oligarchs shows this. The vote is public record, not fake news.
      America is a corrupted Plutocracy presently. Too much Billionaire $ is allowed to corrupt our political system , thanks to Republican SCOTUS Roberts, and the Citizens United ruling.

      So what now? Continue with the corruption which is obvious with the Billionaires of the tRump administration, who gave their Billionaire pals 2 tax cuts, and screwed the middle class, poor.
      Or end the corruption by voting for a known honest Democrat with impeccable history of representing the middle class.

      In polls the vast majority want medicare for all, free college , and higher minimum wages, all poll at 75% and up. The American public majority are progressive, not conservative.
      It is only thru voter purges, broken voting machines in key states, (27 GOP controlled) Russian influence , that we were saddled with a clueless racist narcissistic sociopathic ill man child, who caused a government shut down with no change, no wall will come out of this fraud of a cause.

      With tRump ruining the Republican brand, he is done, thankfully he will be gone by Christmas.

      Medicare for all will not work, who will pay for it? Medicare was paid for by the recipients for years and it's going broke. Everyone covered with less services, longer waits, that is what you want? Think about it, Canadians are not happy with their services and come here and pay for better care.

        I prefer a version of Medicare for All in which Medicare is opened to people not yet 65 but at a cost to them equal to the actual cost to the government of providing that health insurance. Thus for people less than 65 Medicare would be a option that you could choose rather than private insurance. Medicare has very low overhead so it would be a strong competitor to private plans. Of course, if you have health care through your employer, nothing changes.

        For people too poor to buy even Medicare coverage, we would continue to have free insurance for them (i.e., Medicaid) or for the medium-poor there would be partial government subsidies (i.e., like Obamacare except Medicare would be an option on the exchanges).

    Kochs - Medicare For All Best
    Posted on: 2019-01-28 16:01:07   By: Anonymous
     
    The Koch bros had multiple studies made, all showed a cost of $10 -20 Billion per year, without the Insurance Cos, and $38 Billion with the Insurance cos administration. This study showed savings also due to negotiated drug pricing which the Ins cos were shown to not achieve savings such as seen with the Va.

    Medicare for all would be paid by an increase of the Billionaires tax , a tax on instant trades on Wall Street, and possibly a small increase in income tax.
    Other subsidized programs such as college, would be paid from increases in the minimum wage.

    Fox has tried to tell a lie that other free health care programs in other countries such as Canada shows these countries have better care outcomes at 1/3-1/2 the price of the US for profit system.

      Neither party is doing a good job of looking after OUR money. The GOP tax cut increased the ANNUAL deficit to $1 trillion.

      The Democrats are at least talking about ways in which they would increase taxes on the very wealthy to pay for some of their pie in the sky programs. I favor taxing the very wealthy more (say those with more than $50 million net worth or making more than $10 million per year) but there is not enough to be had from those people to pay for all the Medicare for All or free college programs.

      So, again, neither party is showing any fiscal responsibility.
