Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people. ~W.C. Fields
So thanks for the advice, but I live in the real world too. Maybe you are not capable, but I am capable of telling the difference between an ideal expressed or desired, and the reality that will develop. For example, the ideal is that the electoral process in this country allows the government to be controlled by the voters.
Reality, of course, is very much the opposite.
The ideal is that conservatism and capitalism unbridled will bring up happy days and peace and opportunity for all. Reality, of course, is that we have essentially a fascist system in play, in which the government is controlled by special interests.
So which world do you live in Mycroft? Ideal or real?
[QUOTE=iguanaman;1064449939]Reagan had the same problem explaining it. I would guess that it would help if you are from Haiti but I am not into the occult anyway.
Reagan had no problem explaining it, he had no problem demonstrating it. And again, I will point out that you lack even a basic understanding of what trickle down economics is. And I am not impress with a Paul Krugman piece in the New York Slimes. Neither are anything close to objective.
However single payer would be going from very very bad to much much worse. More government control of healthcare is not the solution. Healthcare in the private market was affordable once upon a time. In my 20s and early 30s, I barely noticed my payroll deduction for healthcare. There are market based solutions that can make it affordable again.
