Re: Communism in America

The Fair Tax isn't the worst idea by far. However, the probability of getting the Fair Tax as it is presented is rather unlikely. The Constitution states:

The Congress shall have...

Re: Communism in America

Single Payer would reduce the size of government. Medicare as we know it would be abolished. And current Medicare funding would be put into the new and streamlined Single Payer system.

Re: Communism in America

Single Payer would reduce the government's involvement in healthcare, because it ties the hands of the insurance industry who keeps lobbying for laws that allow them to corner and gouge Americans,...
