    Ha! Exactly. How many COUNTIES did he win in NY in 2016? Something like all but five of them.

    Just what we need: more stupid FLD's running around in the urban centers of those states. The real question is how much stupidity can they bring to Florida and Texas.

    Emergency care already takes place. If someone calls an ambulance for a true emergency, they aren't going to NOT treat them. If someone can come to the emergency room with a cold and not get turned away...

    It seems obvious this is not what he is talking about, unless he is a complete idiot....

    Never mind.

    True, but Biden will never make it clear, because simply saying he wants to give them free, full healthcare, which US citizens don’t have, would not go over well outside the coasts.

    The two most effective ways to engage large groups of people are to 1) scare them, and 2) make them mad.

    I for one am concerned about 'scaremongering.' Both sides do it. Both sides have scared people and made people mad. The more this goes on, the more people there will be who will want to hurt other people.

    This isn't political differences so much as it is a political feud. People are now scared of the other side, and mad at the other side, and that's COMPLETELY crushing any likelihood of reason playing any sort of a role. I think it has been that way for a while, but it is worse now than it's been in my lifetime. Throw in the fact that politicians are more than willing to use fear and anger as tools for their own personal selfish gain, and that's making things even more of a mess.

    I think DJT's informal unpredictable approach is a disaster in a lot of what he does especially domestically. However, it is perfect for the trade war. It may crater markets but it's a price worth paying IMO.

    The greatest threat we face is the the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. If you live in Ohio, you should be aware OH HB 70 is current in committee. I'd urge you to contact your representatives and preemptively voice opposition if you believe in Federalism. If NPVIC passes the threshold*, NY and CA will usurp the voice of the midwest and south. That's not hyperbole. We should all be very afraid of the democrats' scheme to destroy state rights and the equal representation of a diverse federal citizenry through the dictatorship of a popular vote. I for one am not from NY or CA, I don't live in NY or CA, and the people of NY and CA do not represent my values and beliefs. I have no desire to be beholden to them.

    *In my view, NPVIC is almost certainly unconstitutional. But there will be a hell of a political and legal battle over that if it comes to it.

    Why is it worth it? I am genuinely asking and interested in your reasoning?

    Amazing how the Leftist Dems in the House are way more concerned with perpetuating a non-crime, and the alleged "obstruction" of that non-crime by throwing up red herrings and smoke by wanting to hold countless "hearings" and "conferences" to further a disproven Conspiracy Theory. Rather, how about actually addressing legislation that may help solve the current Immigration Crisis- which it really is despite Jim Acosta's carefully placed visit to a remote Texas border location where no one tries to cross- and health care and infrastructure issues. How about just stopping the Trump Derangement Syndrome and maybe do something you were elected to do?

    This next election is gonna be fun. A bunch of 2 year Reps that got elected that will be running for re-election on a platform of nothing done but preaching hatred of the current administration and boolsheet. Can't wait to see that empty sheet of accomplishments. That's definitely a plan to govern, Dems. Keep shooting yourselves in the ass.
