Tulsi? Absolutly. The other two? BARF! If one of them actually wins ,I will go into posture and never come out of it. WARREN? She will take away MY HC. And probably TAX my 401K. Pete has no experience. Never run a business. Maybe if he served as Senator for 12 years. Not yet.

She won't take away your healthcare...I am guessing you have Medicare. Your's will stay the same, but maybe my healthcare would be better, since I am still working to fund the safety net insurance. I still pay taxes....a lot of TAXES, and I want the same benefits as the ones I support with my taxes. I am sick of paying the taxes that I do....from my paycheck and personal check book on April 15th and take care of people who have better healthcare than I do. It is not fair to the middle class taxpayers.

Being a corrupt businessman is not a criteria for leading a Nation of people and Trump has zero political experience. I am willing to give a new person a shot. Buttigieg is a vet, and a highly educated person. That is two up on Trump.

Two out of those three are anti-war former vets. Trump himself has been pretty good about keeping us out of MORE WAR.

America First needs to happen with our military, our trade, or families our communities, etc.

Just a question. No disrespect for Pete intended. But do you think the Saudis or any other Islamic Nation would negotiate with Pete? Knowing their religious views? As far as Warren , she has tangled so many webs about her past that she could NEVER be trusted. Also ,52 TRILLION? Where does it come from? Medicare is in the Red right now. Expand it to EVERYONE? I would be RATIONED. My kids would LOSE their excellent HC. Tulsi? Liberal ,but I would be OK with her.

Tulsi
Amy

that being said - I would never vote for a democrat - especially these socialists. They are way too far left. I find it sad that they could not get one moderate to run. I suspect Joe would have gone that way but he was forced left. I also really really like yang as a person .. He comes across as so nice but I think he would be an awful president. I think Tulsi and Amy would switch to being somewhat moderate once they got in, so I don't fear them as much as the others. I respect Tulsi because she is not afraid to say what she thinks. She waited to come out on impeachment - while the others immediately jumped on the bandwagon. Also, unlike her comrades, she came out against infanticide.

No one is for infanticide. Just stop with that nonsense.

I honestly don't care about the Islamic Nations. The faster the US closes the door to them, the better. The ME has done nothing but cost this Country money, resources and blood. The thing is...Pete served in the ME and made it out alive. Those Countries abuse women, children, animals and anything thing else they can find and probably many of them are gay as well...they just have to hide it. We don't need the ME.

The cost for a form of inclusive coverage for all...will most likely be paid for by premiums, just like we are doing now with the exception of not being ripped off by for-profit insurance companies. I don't think MFA will pass and it will not be free. She is going in with MFA but it will not shake out that way. I am thinking perhaps rolling back the eligibility age to 55 and offering a public buy in at a affordable cost not the inflated ACA costs.

I think the mantra of losing coverage is partisan hyperbole. I expect the same insurance that I pay for Medicare and Medicaid recipients. There is nothing wrong with wanting what others have....especially when you are paying for it out of your hard earned tax dollars. Medicare is in the red because our idiotic politicians, left and right have pillaged it for other causes. If the working 50 year old's are able to join, they are still working and they will pay the Medicare tax and they will pay premiums. We might save the program if given a chance. Otherwise, all those Medicare recipients will need to come out of retirement and fund their own healthcare by getting a job. The middle class is shrinking, becoming more unhealthy due to healthcare costs and won't be able to fund it adequately. If it keeps going like it is now, your kids will have to work until they drop for health insurance because Medicare will cease to exist and they will have nothing when they get old. I don't want nothing for free...I just want what I pay for.

None as of yet -
These candidate raised their hands indicating they would have government plan providing coverage for 'undocumented immigrants'.


Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Andrew Yang, Pete Buttigieg, Michael Bennet, and of course Lizzie Warren has a plan of her own.
