Mitch McConnell has done grave damage to all three branches of government. The soft-spoken Kentuckian has, in just a few short years, done lasting damage to the presidency, the Senate and the Supreme Court: the hat trick of democracy destruction. Full article at cnn.com.

Warren's M4A financing plan. Elizabeth Warren over the last few weeks has faced questions over how she imagines financing Medicare for All - and who, in the end, would be better or worse off. On Friday, she answered those questions by sketching out how much she envisions a new government-run health care system costing and, then, how the government would pay for it.

Billionaire Republican Donors Helped Elect Rising Centrist Democrats. Newly empowered centrist Democrats rode a wave of big money into office.

Former administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Dr. Don Berwick testified before the House Ways & Means Committee as part of a June 12, 2019 hearing titled "Pathways to Universal Health Coverage."

Since Colonel Trump knows more about war than the generals, they have become unnecessary. The troops need only one commander: Colonel Donald J. Trump. In his eyes, the generals are a bunch of bureaucrats and losers. On a related note, when is Colonel Trump going to have his regime organize a triumph to match the triumphs of Rome? After all, he is greater than all the generals of world history! Alexander, Scipio Africanus, Caesar, Pompey, Trajan, Marcus Aurelius, Aurelian, and the other Roman generals and emperors winning great victories are pygmies compared to Colonel Trump! So, let the divisions of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and armored cars roll down Pennsylvania Avenue, let squadrons of planes fly through the air, let the bands play for the greater glory of Dump! (I mean the greater glory of Trump!). Howard
