By comparing the cost of procedures in the US to other industrialized countries like Australia,UK, France, New Zealand, Netherlands we find that health insurers pay much more for hospital care.

The Trump and Republican tax incentives for children has been targeted to help high income families instead of low income families and is costing the government 127 billion dollars. People earning 15K a year get $75 per child while the program was extended to people earning $400,000 a year.
Donald Trump promised to bring jobs back to America and revive manufacturing jobs in Midwestern states. His trade polices have had the opposite effects. This is a clear indication that Trump's policies have benefited the one percent, instead of the 99 percent. Voter's need to be reminded that when economy really breaks down because of Trump's policies he will not be able to rescue us from disaster like Obama did?
Federal reserve and the Trump white house have been pointing to the low unemployment to signal a strong economy, they were wrong. In their unemployment numbers they don't count people who have dropped out and have not found a job for 7 months or longer. Furthermore the wages, which usually go up in a strong job market have been stagnant. The economy is not as great as the politicians want you to believe.
Finland is a good example of what 'Democratic Socialism" will look like. We get great health care without the paper work and equal in quality, we pay $300 a month for excellent child care, and child will get great K-12 education at no cost, regardless of the neighborhood we live in, and today Finland is one of the world's wealthiest societies with hugely successful global companies.
In order to boost profits for his donors and mega corporations, Trump is limiting scientific research that government uses to determine public health regulations.

Saltwater is killing off woodlands all along the mid-Atlantic coast, sometimes surprisingly far from the sea. This is all a consequence of melting ice and rising sea waters. Climate change effects will cascade and men will not be able to cope. It will cost way more than what we have to do now to reverse the trend. This report here is talking about areas on NY, NJ, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, close to home!
Rapid and massive flooding of urban areas will only get worse with Climate Change. Houston is a prime example. The passed new building codes and budgeted billions for flood control in 2017. Tropical storm Imelda which hit 2 weeks ago shows that their efforts have not helped much. Houston has experienced one 500 year flood and 2 one hundred year flood since 2016. The cost of inaction or slow action will be much more. We need structural change.
We elect our representatives to protect us from harm and not work in the interest of fossil fuel industry and other big businesses.. Trump and his administration have rolled back, or are in the process of rolling back more than 80 environmental rules often without notifying the public. These role back could lead to thousands of extra deaths from poor air quality. #VoteBlue
In the current American system, recovery is only for those with a stock portfolio, American middle class who live on salaries and savings have little chance of realizing the American dream. Trump was elected because people were angry and he has made the problem worse.
Well funded organizations funded by special interest like the Koch brothers are advancing causes that harm the society by framing the issues in terms that mislead people into voting against their longterm interest, in search of profits for their own investments while misleading the public.
Certain services in our society need to be focused on providing services, instead of driving profits. Education is one of them. Putting poor children at a disadvantage because of their economic plight harms the entire society. We need local officials in control of education and provide them with the resources they need to do their jobs.
