I f we can remove some of the costs associated with products that we trade globally, Medicare for all could make us more competitive with the rest of the world. Medicare costs would be absorbed through some kind of taxation, but as long as we still have the so-called free trade, we will always be more expensive if we do not remove the outrageous costs of present day insurance from the costs of goods.

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
