Many times we talk about policies in the abstract not realizing that in fact, they are impactful in the everyday lives of millions of Americans. Healthcare policy at some point will affect every single American.
Alycia Ramirez unfortunately saw this first hand. Their health insurance situation or lack thereof was real. Her mother-in-law care was directly proportional to her ability to pay or get help outside of the health insurance system. Getting sicker afforded her no level of compassion in our system. If you cannot pay or you are not lucky to get outside assistance, you die.
EgbertoWillies.com: My biggest fears on Trump and Russia have been realized and it did not have to be this way.: The Mueller report is the type of result one expected from this investigation. It has always been a farce because there are two standards in this country. Donald Trump is perfect for the Plutocracy. With a people that are moving left, they ALL, our politicians with power, will choose Trump over the Left. Russia would not change that.
I am with all those who believe that collusion with Russia is clear. obstruction of justice is clear. Criminality is clear. But Donald Trump is great for the American brand of capitalism
