    Indeed. I find it hard for any conservatives, or at least Trumpers, to get down on Bernie when there is a bromance between Donald and Putin. For that matter speaking of oppressive Communist regimes...

    Made me laugh, too.

    I at least read wiki on Cuba. Their health and education systems looked pretty good to me, at least for a third world country subject to sanctions.

    #3 It is simpler and doesn't have the other distracting graphics that for me don't add much. I think you only need one graphic.

    As long as the Senate remains Republican most of Bernie's proposals are a long way off if at all. It's like how Donald was going to deport all the illegals and get rid of Obama Care.

    That's my take. Everyone should have either an Advantage plan or Medigap, plus whatever it is people should make sure they have some sort of drug coverage. I recall there is a penalty for...
