    And you are surprised about that? ;)

    Im not liberal/conservative, Im anti-idiotarian.
    At some point in the last 20 years, the left moved to the center, and the right moved into a mental institution

    I'm not sure what Kennedy was after with HMO's but I understood that it was a somewhat 'limited' concept attempting to lower the cost of health care. And then, of course the private sector grab hold when they saw $$$. To be fair Kennedy was very much into health care and two years earlier he was sponsor to a bipartisan single payer bill. We see how well his efforts paid off.

    Please remember that by modern standards, Nixon was a leftist commie. He proposed the HMO Act, and it was a bipartisan act. https://www.rand.org/content/dam/ran...GSD172.ch1.pdf

    According to Rand, the left saw HMO as a step toward socialized medicine, and the conservatives saw it as an alternative to socialized medicine. In the end, we got the very worst of both worlds at a much higher price.

    In case you’re not following the news:
    An ex-Mueller assistant said the leaked of Mueller questions were riddled with spelling mistakes and therefore must have been fabricated by Trump. Trump then proceeded to tweet that there were no questions on Russia collusion amongst them, despite several collusion questions on the leaked list.
    Comey affirmed that the FBI has evidence on Trump-Russia collusion.
    In a speech to the military, Trump said “I’m seriously thinking about adding a space force to the military” and reaffirmed planning on sending more Americans to the moon, moments after which NASA cancelled its lunar rover program.
    Bill Gates turned down a job offer as presidential science adviser, saying it wouldn’t be a good use of his time.
    Michael Cohen was ordered to pay back 282K in taxes that he hid from the IRS (fraud).
    Migrants on a caravan that Trump vowed to stop were allowed to enter the US territory to seek asylum.
    Ronny Jackson dropped out as white house doctor after the press discovered that he was being regularly drunk on the job and harassed female coworkers.
    Trump sent his bodyguards to raid (yes raid) his ex-doctor’s office and confiscate potentially compromising evidence. His doctor later confessed to CNN that the glowing letter he wrote about then candidate Trump was dictated by Trump.
    It was revealed that Scott Pruitt’s trip to Morocco was set up by a lobbyist (corruption).
    Mueller had a tense meeting with Trump’s lawyers in which he threatened to subpoena Trump.
    AND THAT WAS JUST DURING THE PAST 15 HOURS.

    Thanks for the recap. The "daily outrage" that was a feature of this administration has now become the "daily shotgun blast" - a compendium of the outrageous, disgusting, and vapid.

    The pundits are now starting to predict a much closer election than was believed. Support for the Democrats is waning with young voters - a very bad sign. Just because the Democrats can't put together a coherent plan for improving the country, and plan to run on the "at least I'm not Trump" platform, is no reason to panic.
