    The “ so this is what you’re saying” response is lame.

    Unlike todays groupthink, university’s as a matter of principle encouraged of all points of view. I was fortunate to be able to have Professor Tarshsis in first year.
    Perhaps you can ask Santa for a shovel for Christmas and get a grant from Ottawa to dig those holes to rebut the now largely discarded JM Keynes theory’s.
    Not to worry. You'll always have Venezuela.

    There’s hope for you too.
    Lame? And you offer a Venezuelan epithet? Yikes. That's been tried here and "discarded". Thought you'd like the irony point ...but too much Justin on your mind perhaps...

      Just a few weeks ago you did exactly that for like 5 separate responses in a row to me man. It was lame then too.
      That was different.
      I was saying it.
      And it was only once.

        • Jeffrey Sachs and multilateralism ...

          • The last debate was better but it's still the bare minimum with both of them speaking in results rather than approaches. Everyone wants better healthcare, how are you going to do it?

              Simple. A reapportionment of spending priorities ... but no one really wants to put out details. Anyone listening and checking historical policies by the 2 parties/standard bearers should have a pretty good idea...

              One more ... get off the socialism argument as a gateway to "better" healthcare. Hello Canada ... for one... actually every other western industrialized democracy.

                I'm not really sure what you're getting at here. I'm in favour of public healthcare. The details are important though, especially in a country that doesn't yet have it.

                  It is precisely why I added your highlighted text ... because you raised an issue in a country which debates this constantly (this is not a new US policy change suggestion) ... and that one party raises the spectre of socialism whenever any "Universal or public healthcare system" is proposed as replacement. That is the republicans default argument it seems against any change.

                  Yes details are important. But 2 mins. for details about a public h/c system during these debates? And can DT debate policy details of any kind?

                  • The US is still too conservative, and that is why the Democratic Party had to bring in a moderate to go against Trump. Bernie and OAC and their ilk probably don't have a chance until some of the boomers are out of the picture.. but even then typically the older you get, your politics change as well.

                    I don't really see a universal healthcare (medicare for all) type of system in place in the States for quite some time yet. There is to much influence from lobbyists, and big pharmacy especially has too much influence.

                    The Citizens United vs FEC case was a travesty and surely doesn't help matters.

                      On balance I agree.

                      This election should clarify the characterization whether the US is "still too conservative". ... and the enactment of change depending on the political rebalancing of seats in their Congress.

                      Absolutely agree on the Citizens U. ruling and the sloshing of money permissible in policy making, pol. contribs. and elections. And no accountability on where most of the funding is coming from. This contributes to the original point of why the h/c system remains expensive and the way it is (multi tier). Obama's own party denied his go at it.

                      When everyone can receive similar access to h/c as members of Congress .... lol.

                      • Are the Democrats the political equivalent of the Clippers ?
                        Empirical evidence seems to say "Yes".

                          Lol Which empirical evidence is that? Democrats have won 7 of the last 8 Popular Votes ... and are on track to win both the PV and the Presidency itself .. so I'm going to go ahead and say "Nope".

                          • This presidential election will end historically bad the way things are going. Trump is already gearing up for court.
