Re: How Long Will The Shutdown Last? (Dec 2018)

Any compromise outcome of all of this should be a means of never allowing a government shutdown (i.e. regular employees being furloughed and/or forced to work without pay for an unspecified period of time) to happen. Just make it a law that we can't do this and we don't do this again. It serves no p...

Re: Republican Party

Some of that is also Trump-related (and related to grown-ups not knowing how to deal with him). The Fed seemed to want to show it's independence from Trump and doing the opposite of what he was arguing for just for the sake of showing they weren't going to cowtow to Trump, even if raising the rate ...

Re: Republican Party

Well, true. The fed hasn’t helped, that’s for sure. The last rate increase was completely unnecessary. I can't say whether the last rate increase was unnecessary or not. But the posture of the Fed being hell bent on continuing to raise in the future regardless of what the data says was unsettling t...

There's no way Trump reschedules it. He wants the spectacle of having everyone in the room while him and Pelosi agree to never agree with each other (or find a compromise). He has no shame so he'll gladly step to the microphone. I can't see how she'll be okay with that, though. I wonder if they can...

I agree, there will always be two health care systems - one for everyone, and then the one for the wealthy. That's how it works pretty much everywhere where there is a nationalized health care system (the NHS in the UK is a perfect example). I think we should do that TODAY - there's no need to wait...
