Not sure why you are insistent on celebrating it.

i'm not celebrating it, i'm laughing at it.

I mean, if you toggle to percent of income you get some kooky results. Even Clinton voters (smart adults who understand how the world works) didn't seem to have a good sense of how dollars spent relates to percent of income.

i think it's safe to say we aren't going to be moving to a single payer hc system or adopting any of the other big progressive welfare state projects anytime soon.

I would bet that a long term effect of everyone having quality care when needed would be less overall need.

i mean, no.  obviously not.

Is single payer going to solve our obesity problem?
No, but GLP1 drugs will. Obesity will be non existent in the USA in a decade.

Everyone talks about big pharma being bad (not the Danes obviously) but, folks, this is why they are how they are and we need to recognize them for it

He's right; that's why all the chicken crap paid for by billionaires throw their funds to Biden to keep Bernie from getting elected.  Nobody in the paid-for government wants Bernie in control.
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

Bernie is good to great on many fronts. This is not one of them.

The only way to fix the specific problem that Bernie is pointing at in this instance is to get rid of 401(k) and force employers to pay into pensions.

In the mean time, I sure rough ridin' hope those companies keep whipping ass because the entirety of all my market exposure is in SP500 Index funds and that's what has made those fuckers fat.
