As head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal counsel, William Barr wrote a memo concluding that the FBI could forcibly abduct people in other countries without the consent of the foreign state. He refused to provide the complete memo to Congress, but said he would provide an account that "summarizes the principal conclusions." Sound familiar? read more

In 2018, statewide Dems received 54% of all votes, which translated into a superminority of just 36% of state assembly seats due to a blatantly partisan gerrymander. The latest statewide poll shows Wisconsinites leaning far to the left of its Republican-dominated legislature on a wide number of issues. read more

Confidence that human activities are raising the heat at the Earth's surface has reached a "five-sigma" level, a statistical gauge meaning there is only a one-in-a-million chance that the signal would appear if there was no warming. Such a "gold standard" was applied in 2012, for instance, to confirm the discovery of the Higgs boson subatomic particle, a basic building block of the universe.


No one familiar with both those plans and Medicare would claim Medicare is in the 90th percentile.

I didn't make that claim, but in your frothed up state you may not have noticed that.

I can guarantee you, these people exist.

I never denied that they exist. I'd simply like to know how many of them there are, since your shtick is to rely on their existence to aegue against M4A. We can't understand how to address your supposed problem without knowing how big the problem is. But you prefer to keep it nebulous because a moving target lets you keep arguing.

You're also going to deal with folks in the 80th percentile and 70th percentile who all will be asked/told to take worse health coverage than they currently have.

Then they can buy a supplemental plan, like they do in Canada. Taking into account the projected savings from our curent system where Americans pay $3.5 Trillion/year for healthcare, perhaps it's a wash or a slight increase. In exchange for everyone in the country having access to quality healthcare? Again, if these people are going to bitch about that i just don't care.

Those are the best-paid workers in the country, with the deepest pockets, and they'll have the most to lose.

That lie again? Some of the people with the best insurance are the highest earners, but many of them are police, firemen and other government or unionized workers who are not necessarily the highest earners but simply get insane benefits as part of being in government in a strong connunity or being unionized. The fact that you only work with high net worth individuals does not mean they are the only people in the country.
