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.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
