Steve Plonk here...I just couldn't be silent during this awful government shutdown.
Both parties, collectively, need to stand up to Trump if they haven't already.
The president has no excuse to hold the paychecks to government workers hostage
because of a petulant tantrum about "the wall". It is both cruel and ludicrous at the same time.
Peoples' lives and livelihoods are at stake. This shutdown needs to end as soon as possible.

As for a so-called "state of emergency"...this thing only exists in Trump's pointy head.
If the president follows through on the above, he will cause more snafus than already exist.
Heck, customs agents and air traffic controllers aren't even being paid now. If that isn't
priority for national security, I don't know what it is. The FBI is also being shortchanged!
I continue to hope and react in order to get our senators to stand up to Trump!

Bizarro World, a proponderance of the preposterous, an abundance of absurdities.

Me too Steve. Like he has to endanger the country in order to protect it. :(

glad you are back

Trump appears to be creating his own national emergency all by himself! His own cabinet and the Congress need
to stand up to him. I appreciate your well wishes and will post as much as I am able.

Looks like congress tried to stand up to Trump and his "national emergency" at the border. Too bad that they
didn't have enough votes, so far, to override Trump's veto. Congress must continue to stand up to Trump's agenda.

I had a crazy idea the other day. I was thinking about starting a "Draft Hillary" movement for 2020.

Sorry, it took so long to answer back. My computer was "on the fritz".
It is doubtful that Hillary would run again...I watched some of the Democratic debates &
find myself undecided, but waiting to see who emerges from the fray.

I think that insurance must be open-ended toward "single payer". I seems that individual states
could have insurance bidding by insurance companies with comprehensive plans.
The lowest equitable bidder could be chosen by each individual state & approved by the feds.
That way, each state would have a single payer, & eventually the federal government would
subsidize each state, respectively. That would be a good compromise. No one has thought of
coverage in quite that way yet. I am hopeful that healthcare plans will change.
