Here's the bottom line, other countries have single-payer or another system, pay less than the the U.S does and have a better systems.  If we could adopt one of their systems, maybe we could do the same and save money (say single-payer system, like Medicare for all.).  Are the other countries economic healthcare geniuses?  Maybe Hillary thinks so, but I don't.

We don't even have the top 25 health care system, but we pay the most per capita.  That is insane, by anyone's economic standards.

Hillary's health care plan is even more vague  than the one she criticizes.  Have you read her plan?  These are quotes from her health care page (https://goo.gl/5cuOpU):

"She'll build on it (the ACA) to expand affordable coverage, slow the growth of overall health care costs"

Oh really, how?

"Hillary believes that workers should share in slower growth of national health care spending through lower costs."

That's nice.  How are you going to accomplish that?

"Hillary believes we need to demand lower drug costs for hardworking families and seniors."

Again, how?

"She will also call for states to support efforts to streamline licensing for telemedicine and examine ways to expand the types of services that qualify for reimbursement."

Like you said to Bernie last night, the states run by the likes of Scott Walker?  Sam Brownback of Kansas?  Greg Abbott of Texas?

As far as I can tell Clinton's plan is to stay w/the same corporate health care system and try to use incentives make the corporations do a better job.  This is more of her, third way, New Democrat b.s. that makes sure her big donor friends still get paid.  Meanwhile, people remain uninsured, can't afford their deductible, can't afford treatment, are going bankrupt after medical care (number one reason in the U.S.) and are dying from lack of healthcare.  

Stop, just stop the denial that all the donations don't affect her policies when they clearly do.

Look at her healthcare page and you decide who is talking fantasy and who is talking about a real solution to provide healthcare for all. 

This sounds like more of her Wall St. advice, 
"Cut it out."

Why is Milwaukee so bad for black people?
Milwaukee is one of the most segregated cities in the country, and statistically one of the worst for African-Americans. We explore key factors in the city's racial divide ahead of Thursday's Democratic debate.

+Jordan B Sorry I can't agree on total nonsense spewed to the black community. Adopting the victimization mentality is a position of utter weakness. Strength lies in being strong as individuals that are then able to be strong as members of a group WITHOUT putting down anyone else or other group.
