  • I lived in Finland almost 30 years and avg tax rate of 31,3% is awful. this avg of +-30% is something for middle class people pays, for salaries 5k/month and more you pay +-50%. Many people speaks about tax paradises like Malta (my current place) but rather tax paradise than the paradise of tax collectors !

  • Good luck finding a doctor. We will end up with a two tier system. The rich who can pay for their care and the rest of us not having access to care. Doctors can't stay in business getting paid at Medicare rates for everyone. You will wait forever to get surgeries etc. These people are idiots. We can't allow them to have any more control of our lives. They don't care about us. They only care about power.

  • Gotta love all the external countries commenting on America's way of life. Without us you wouldn't be able to afford your precious tax free tuition, or health care. We literally pay you billions of dollars in defense funds so that you can defend yourselves. God knows you cant or wont whenever you're threatened by a neighboring country. NONE of you would even exist if it weren't for the U.S. and Allies entering the 2nd world war. The United States of America, the only country IN THE WORLD where free speech exists. If you said half of the things you like to post like coward internet warriors, in your own countries, You'd probably be beheaded. America's the worst, just don't be gay in Iran because then they'll throw you off the top of a building. Americans and their love of guns, hahaha pewey, except hows that knife crime going over in the UK? Gun buyback yeah, Australia has a handle on that. Still having shootings and knife murders. So don't sit there on your high horse and down us Americans. Maybe the next time some dictator is knocking at your door, we'll sit here on OUR high horses and look down our noses at you. Just ask the French how well it went when O'l Adolph came a knocking. Their government, which you people want in every aspect of your lives, rolled over and played dead. Handed the keys to the country right on over. (NOT blaming the valiant French people. They fought for years to liberate their country after their government failed them)

    • @SpecialistBR Yeah, and we pay most of those countries defense funds. Don't come at me with bullshit. Leftists, gotta love it when they only pull out one segment of an entire argument to TRY and make a point. WE PAY THEIR DEFENSE FUNDS!!! There would be none of those countries without the United States or the monies that we pay so they can afford to arm their armies. They had better come to our defense. BETTER meaning that in my mouth every god damned shit hole country that you listed above, BETTER get out of bed and walk on nails if we ask them to. When they STOP taking US dollars then you can talk shit. Until then, recognize, that you come from a 3rd world dirt hole that no one cares about. When you can support all your cute little free tuition and free health care on your own, then you can talk shit. Until then, if I want to hear shit from you, I'll squeeze your head.

    • I don't know if you were even born before 9/11/2001, because you sound like a toddler. But after that day, when more than 3 thousand americans were killed by terrorists that your government helped create back in the 80s, every member of NATO stepped forward in helping the US and most of them even sent troops to Iraq and Afghanistan to fight alongside US troops. So you better wash your mouth before talking about Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland, Georgia, Ireland, North Macedonia, Switzerland, Sweden, Ukraine, Australia, Bahrain, El Salvador, Jordan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Mongolia, Singapore, Singapore, South Korea, Tonga and the United Arab Emirates because they also literally spilled blood in foreign soil to help defend your personal safety and freedom to come here to TRvision and say stupid shit.

  • Yes that's right little stevie, keep pushing your show closer and closer to the edge of that political cliff ahead, host all the 2020 democratic candidates, make fun of Donald, beef up those anti-conservative undertones, and whatever you do stevie, make sure you cater to your audience, after all.. your audience is clearly the majority, and even though the democratic party will lose to the bad orange president, you need them to be as informed as possible about this election so that when Trump gets reelected, they can remember what they've learned from you and your leftist media comrades while they throw the next round of temper tantrums. And while you watch these Americans hating & hurting other American brothers and sisters from the safety of your studio, just remember that some of that American blood that will be shed is in large part due to YOU being a bitter baby about 2016. It will be largely on YOUR hands because instead of using your reach and influence to try and bring us all together through logic, hope and love, you decided to spend these 4 years using it to divide us through illogical emotions, fear and hate. I know Trump isn't the best president ever, but he's who we have, and despite being a flawed human being just like you and I, he actually has gotten a lot done so far for the benefit of this country, I do not agree with all of his moves but if I did I'd be a sheep, and anyone that dismisses all of the good things he's done because of the bad things, is a sheep as well. The more you whine, and call us all names, the more we will support your opposition. Instead of shutting down conversation, let's have some civility about this and build a new coalition.. ?

The Democrats are just trying to make it worse.. if I were illegal, they would put me on public assistance. But I'm an american so that makes me a deplorable human being..don't understand how you all can lie to yourselves about healthcare for all...

  • She is a lying toad ! And I am not even a braindead Yanks like most of her stupid naive supporters ! She is not Native American. The Harvard Crimson, the daily student newspaper of Harvard University, was founded in 1873. It is the only daily newspaper in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is run entirely by Harvard College undergraduates. In 1996, Harvard believed that Pocahontas was a Native American. Here's the extract of the article. "Of 71 current Law School professors and assistant professors, 11 are women, five are black, one is Native American and one is Hispanic, said Mike Chmura, spokesperson for the Law School. Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American." www.thecrimson.com/article/1996/10/22/survey-diversity-lacking-at-hls-pa/

  • Actually the Constitution does not say the President must ask Congress to use military force, the War Powers Act puts weasel words on that. The Constitution is simpler, it says *only* Congress has the power to declare war. Which IIRC was last done for WW2, not Korea, not Vietnam, not any middle eastern incursion....weasel words.

  • I think what she missed saying is that yes, your taxes will probably go up a little, but your out of pocket costs (insurance, co-pays, etc) will go away. Any increase will come from money you were already spending and now won't have to spend. So you will actually end up paying less.

This country was built of off hard work never quite figure it out on your own no help no handout God fearing people. It's taken generation of people sacrifice to build the greatest country man has ever know and you snowflakes are trying to destroy it. You cannot take something from someone that's not yours . That's called theft . You cannot spend what you don't have.

  • Hawi Jack: let me answer that for you. These are the tax rates in the Netherlands in 2019: Taxable income Percentage Up to 20,384 euro 36.65% From 20,385 till 68,507 euro 38.10% Above € 68,508 euro 51.75% Not specified here are various rebates e.g. anyone earning less than € 20.384 gets a tax rebate of 2,477 euro. There are also housing (rent) and health care subsidies. And if you own a house you may deduct the mortgage rent from your taxable income first.

  • She refused to answer the question. Multiple times. Also, the president is allowed to use military force if whoever is sitting in office deems it necessary; they just can't declare war or utilize a prolong engagement without congressional approval. "Prolong engagement" isn't really defined though; but if the president wished to conduct a strike without congressional approval he is well within his power to do so.

She, like the vast majority of Democrats is also a traitor to America and the American people. Politicians who use their political office for personal gain can be impeached; Therefore, most of the Democratic party (Probably all) can and should be impeached.

  • I have Rheumatoid Arthritis in my spine (and I’m only 40; it happens), spinal stenosis, severe spinal nerve damage from 6 impacted discs in my spinal cord, spinal bone spurs, degenerative disc disease, neuropathy, gastrointestinal problems from the Rheumatoid Arthritis, and I have continuing cognitive issues from having Lyme disease in the past. I have a good job with good insurance (that I pay $489 a month for), but because of my numerous health issues which prevented me from doing my job, I had to go on disability through my employee benefits which only gives me 75% of my original wage. AND I SPENT OVER $16,000 DOLLARS OF MY TAKE HOME PAY ON MEDICAL COSTS AND PRESCRIPTIONS LAST YEAR ALONE; JUST FOR ME ALONE! I have a young adult disabled daughter (who has schizophrenia) and a teen disabled step daughter (she’s Autistic) who live with us for their own safety, and both have special therapies and a lot of medicines that are outrageously expensive. But they must have them to survive! I cry so many nights when I’m trying to go to sleep from the sheer stress of worrying about how I’m going to take care of everyone. We live pay to pay, and many times I’ve had to choose between paying the electric bill, the mortgage, or the phone bill. And many time I’ve not gotten my own medicines because one of the girls needed a refill on theirs. And I always put my kids before myself and would go without in a second so they can have what they need. Sometimes it’s just impossibly hard and we just scrape by. Despite both my husband and I being college educated (we both have Master’s Degrees) people with decent jobs and having worked hard all our lives! But Healthcare is eating my family and I alive. We’re drowning and need a life preserver. I hope 2020 brings it. This is the perspective my vote will be coming from.

And of course the rich will continue to use private cause its faster service, but at least you leave the poor with one way to get treated. Just don’t take private away. Lots of people will loose their jobs too. You will loose a lot of votes!.. America is all about having freedom of choice.

How can you just ignore the economic terrorism the US has been waging on Iran for years?

  • 4:03 Warren explains her plan to cover "Medicare for all" is to tax people that make over 50 million a year 2 cents for every dollar they make over 50 million. According to the Social Security Administration, in 2017 only 205 people in the USA earned more than 50 million dollars. These 205 people made a combined 19.95 billion dollars in 2017. Estimates for what it would cost for everyone to have medicare is between 28-32 trillion dollars over 10 years, or roughly 3 trillion per year. To put it all into perspective, Warren could tax these people 100% of what they earn and would still fall 2.8 trillion dollars short PER YEAR to cover the cost of medicare for all.
