    Why would you assume that? There are plenty of negatives with the free for all we've had our entire lives, but maybe that doesn't matter to you since you largely benefit from it.

    boisterous hubris, arrogance, self deception, conspiracy, mud slinging mixed with a heavy dose of self righteousness.

    So you think it's because I design radiation therapy plans for cancer patients that I am against single payer? Actually my job would become easier... much easier without having to learn new techniques and therapeutic modes. everyone would get treated ala 1994 style. Simple treatments for all. Screw needing to learn Proton Beam therapy or even Rapid arc or tomotherapy...

    Nope. Didn't assume that either. You said, "I assume you see no negatives with single payer." I said I didn't, but was wondering why you would ask such a frivolous question. There are negatives in any complex healthcare system. Most notably the one we have now.

    Pathway to citizenship? You mean for those brought hear illegally as small children that win all the awards in high school and college? I think there should be something in the way of allowing those individuals become citizens... Is there another immigration issue I am missing?

    raise tax rate on top 10 to 95%, no deductions. Print or borrow any additional "revenue" needed...

    We've ALL been fleeced and I've been telling you that for ten years.

    But then, I worked for 30 years in the entertainment complex and I can recognize bull**** when I see it.

    With the exception of your immigration idea (its on the right track, but too lenient), and the 500 dollars a week tax free check for expenses and entertainment, this is a great plan.

Actually, its not so much that Alf was a lousy candidate as much as it was that FDR was able to show he was working to get us out of the collapse of 1929. ****, if FDR didn't try to pack the courts in 1937, there would be no RNC. I am serious, it would have ceased to exist. Also, I am quite confident that we would have had a European style universal healthcare system by the end of the 1930s if the court packing scandal hadn't had happened. Don't believe me? Google what happened in 1930, 1932, 1934, and 1936 in the congressional and presidential elections, and the gubenatorial elections. Another party would have risen to take its place, but the GOP would have been no more.
