1.2.16

LIVING AT THE EXPENSE OF EVERYONE ELSE.

There was a short and instructive snippet in yesterday's Meet the Press.


First, check out Mrs Clinton blistering a voter at a town meeting.  Her point is technically correct, as universal Medicare is a specific form of repeal-and-replace, and a President Sanders might have trouble getting that specific form through the House and the Senate.  It's unlikely, though, that her interlocutor was asking about medical savings accounts or interstate sales of health insurance, two forms of repeal and replace that might work.  Mrs Clinton also appears to be resisting some tax increases.  Perhaps Mr Sanders will steal Vice President Mondale's old line about raising taxes (She won't tell you.  I just did.)

Then catch the soundbite from Representative Pelosi.  "We're not running on any platform of raising taxes."

The state is that grand fiction ...

Nine months to run.
