Trump is your classic bomb-thrower - he has no idea what should happen, he just likes to tell everyone else that his/her policy stinks. He is about as far from a policy wonk as you can get. Kind of like Ronny Raygun in that way.

No socialized anything. Don’t have the money, not my problem.

Don't you have a trust fund to fall back on? I am pretty sure I have seen you mention it in this forum before. How many people, even if they do live responsibly, can say the same?

Medical bills bankrupt many people because they can get into the hundreds of thousands or millions. It's all a mess and something needs to change. I am not sure of the best way, but the answer isn't "Who cares, pay for your own problems" when the costs are unreasonable even for fiscally responsible people.

I agree healthcare reform is desperately needed. What concerns me is the talk from some Democratic candidates of healthcare for all, free higher education and “open borders”. You’re only fooling yourselves if you don’t think some Democrats are looking for open borders. Look at Calif Gov and Los Angeles Mayor speaking out against the last announced raids by telling the farther individuals how to avoid getting apprehended and that they stand with them in solidarity. Now these were individuals who already had their hearings and ordered return to their country of origin. If you think the illegal immigration problem is a big problem now, wait until it gets around that free healthcare and college to anyone who makes it across the border.

He has no environmental policy other than to dismantle protection for the sake of the big environmental offenders bottom line.

He lied to his fans about the Mexican paid for wall over and over again.

No infrastructure bill.

No negotiating for cheaper Rx drug prices.

Draining the swamp was actually the involuntary draining of his swamp and it's still filled with filth. His tax cut for the rich was surely achieved.

His hate-and fear mongering is only the distraction it is designed to be. My five year old nephew is too smart to fall for his giant con job smoke and mirror show. How do grown-ups buy into this?
Oh cool, something you and Trump have in common.

The less the Federal government does, the better.

Yep...and he destroys Obama's Iran nuclear deal because he a jealous birther and then lies and claims how great he is for stopping a planned attack at the last minute to prevent collateral damage. And people buy this **** of poop. He breaks what is not broken and then takes credit for fixing it. Maybe he should have been a plumber.

The so-called "Affordable" Care Act was not affordable for thousands of people, with it's sky high premiums and deductibles so high as to make it worthless. Might as well take your money and toss it in the trash, because that's what you were doing.

Socialized medicine will be even worse. We will all pay and get poor care in return. Look at Canada. They are even denying care to the elderly. Remember when people talked about 'Death panels?' Canada has them.

I agree but that doesn't address what is being said here. He said he had a wonderful program that every one was going to love. Where is it?

The reason Democrats keep prodding Republicans to propose their own program is because an even worse Republican plan is the only thing that will bail them out.
Which seems the best we can hope for out of the Republican's.

Everyone has them. We always have. Insurance turns down care here also.
