    These current Democrats aren't real liberals. Real liberals love America and the Constitution. These creatures are godless, new age, Marxist trash.

    Four years of having to pass college classes is worth something.

    Depends on the classes and the student. I see college grads playing football and basketball, and many of them can't speak basic English.

    The more general question is whether or not we have progressive taxes.

    You mean the organizations that fight against the KKK and the neo-Nazis and the white supremacists? Geez they should just give in and make America white again
    Absolutely. But you act as though everyone walks around spitting on MAGA hatS.
    Do you feel that young people should contribute to social security? Why should they have to subsidize?

    Actually what you are saying is extremism and the inability to see people differently than you and stereotype them so inane,y..just the way trump,does. Ever see his rallies? Talk about the nuts! That’s mental illness

    I like my question. Go ahead and answer it. Why should I pay higher premiums to subsidize someone else?

    The only people I've seen Antifa harass are ordinary citizens, many of them seniors. Anyone that supports Antifa is very misguided. Everyone that works is forced to contribute to Social Security. That's the law.

    .

    Because that is how Health Insurance works. You pay your premiums while healthy and insurance pays your expenses when you are sick. The number of healthy people exceeds the number of sick by a goodly amount in all but the most extraordinary circumstances, so the insurance takes in enough to pay for the people it covers and make a profit besides.

    There is no Antifa. Antifa is a right wing false flag scam to make dissent illegal.

    my taxes subsidize children in schools, I don’t have children in school. My taxes subsidize Social Security for seniors. I subsidize roads I don’t drive on. What do you suppose we should do with people who don’t have health insurance? Let them just die on the streets? Maybe you should be angry at the insurance companies who ripped you off


    No the only people you’ve really seen antifa harass was when they went after the neo-Nazis. We never heard of them before. I don’t know anybody who supports their behavior. Though their causesis good. Unless you support fascism and racism

    Not really. Everyone that buys insurance pays premiums. We're talking about people that can't afford to buy insurance and me paying for their premiums by raising the rate of my premiums. Do you think that's fair?

    I don't think a senior citizen with a MAGA hat is a Nazi. So you support Antifa. Cool. Good luck.

    Premiums? No. Taxes? Maybe.

    IMO, we should help people we want to assist by subsidizing them, not by charging more for health insurance.

    I disagree. We have health clinics for the poor. I'm a senior citizen and I can't afford to subsidize someone else. I'm 71 years old, have paid into Medicare since I was 16 and still paying into it because I work part time. I also pay $135 a month to medicare out of my Social Security. Tell me how that is fair that I should subsidize someone else. No one is subsidizing me and I live at the poverty level. Go ahead.

    Well, good luck with that mind set because you still have 5 more years of Trump.
