    I don't want one dime of my tax dollars spent on illegals... for anything except to send their criminals a$$ back across the border to leach off Mexico. What Mexico does with these criminals border leaches , i care less.

    TULSI GABBARD is the only candidate to address the three most critical issues America (and humanity) face today: 1) America's downward slide from a constitutional republic to a fascist state, 2) America's regime change wars - they are crimes against humanity and are stealing funding from our domestic programs, 3) Climate change - Trump denies the threat of climate change though the US is the world's leading contributor to climate warming per capita. Four more years of Trump and humanity is probably gone before 2100.

    *Excellent..... well.... hummm. Now, let me ask a basic question to all our hard working Republican Representatives to rather continue with their efforts to get rid of all those plastic puppets, their remnants and their 5G technology as well.*

    What?! They rammed Soetorocare down our throats...and it's STILL not good enough? Nope.... they're not going to stop until they've taxed the American middle class Out Of Existence. And THAT, NOT health care, has been the objective all along.

    I don't think our Democratic party has a real handle on what they want to do with healthcare. Even Republicans agree that our system isn't the best, but I wish they could all take a deep breath and work together to create something that everyone will be happy with. Forget the political points!

    Democrats should run on healthcare, education and marijuana.
    - Healthcare is a kitchen table issue that needs working out. Republicans have offered NOTHING except to try to destroy Obamacare. No replace. Just repeal. And don't think for a moment that Trump wants to save pre-existing condition protections. (Can we use initials for that? Maybe PECPs? People leave out the word, "protections", and say "I'll KEEP pre-existing conditions", because it's a mouthful. Without the word, "protections", they're being vague or even saying the opposite.
    - Education is a Democratic issue. Trump reflects a failure in the public education system. It's the Republicans who call teachers unions "terrorist organizations". It's the Republican Betsy DeVos who is screwing public educators further for the profit of private, and faith-based private school administrators.
    - The numbers don't lie. It's time. One party better claim the legalization platform before the other does. Marijuana legalization is DIRECTLY tied to problems in the prison system. Dems should take those bragging rights back from Trump/Kushner's so-called prison reform initiatives, which left much of the problem unaddressed.

    If the Gov provides nothing else it should provide clean water, clean air and Health Care. We can defend and educate ourselves.

    I think we’re going to eventually get to Medicare for All but for now, I think we can start with Medicare for All Who Want It as an option for the ACA but ACA has issues that definitely have to be addressed. However, I also think that the folks who think they can go to Medicare for All five minutes after the inauguration are kidding themselves. We need to work this in steps to help ensure we don’t have as many problems in roll out which an incremental roll out will help prevent (hopefully).

      If unfunded, it will just result in rationed care, aka SlobCare 2.

    Democrats, please find a message...outside of impeach Trump, and learn how to stay focused on the fight and stop taking Trump's bait, as he is effectively distracting you!
    It's been nearly a week and a half and I haven't consistently seen one child on the border in a cage, because you, CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, WAPO and more of fixed on this deflecting tactic that Trump spoon-fed you!

      Lor M - Democrats in Congress can't do a thing about it because Republicans in Congress refuse to work with them or pass any Democrat-sponsored bill. Republicans have done NOTHING about health care except try to destroy the ACA. Trump has been promising to replace ACA with "something wonderful", yet neither he, nor the Republicans have made one proposal. I want them to reinstate and improve on ACA, which most people approved of.
