re: Trump will not enforce individual mandate; no fines - UAFanFromNOLA
[quote]The mandate pisses me off to no end, but without it, won't the burden be shifted to those who do have care?[/quote]Yes. This also was why the Medicaid expansion was important to the law and it was mind numbing that some governors turned down free money to make a political point. If poor peopl...

re: Trump speaking in front of wall to CIA - UAFanFromNOLA
Having a speech in front of the wall is not a bad thing, and it would be similar to having a speech in front of Arlington Cemetery. Having a speech in front of the wall and then going on discuss yourself and your war with the media is extremely disrespectful to the people who gave their lives throug...
