    The reassurance isn’t reassuring

  3. ….please America…vote him [ Trump ] out of office! …For all of us….for America!

  4. Winners aren’t whiners

  5. We want a NORMAL LIFE, so … We will KICK HIM OUT !!

    • Doubt it! Might get a hundred people at his rallies on a good day! Biden should have retired on top as VP now he is a joke using his record player

    • @Baron Russian bot.

    • Yes!! I agree Biden/Harris 2020!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • @Randy Couch Latest news on Dump rallies. His rallies have been linked to an uptick of 30,000 new Corvis-19 cases and 700 deaths.. During this time with this virus people are depending more and more on the medical field. So here we are getting attached by a foreign country again at our hospitals. And the people that need these services the most may not be able to get the help because of these Russian bots. You may not think much about this until it affects you, and with all the super spreader events going on with the Trump administration, there may never be another time like this when you end up needing the medical field more for your survival. Contributing the death to other conditions is completely ridicules since most other conditions are treatable through life changes and medications, where this virus has NO CURE. Covid-19 exasperates underlining conditions, THAT’S why people are dying. So, when people choose to not wear a mask and they do so because they are following someone like Trump or they think it’s just another government controlling issue, then they should take responsibility for their action and realize just how they are putting a great burden on others. Seriously, if you make that choice, then you should not expect anyone to come to your rescue when you’ve contract the virus and need the medical field to save your life. Don’t get me wrong, but the ignorance to follow Trump, a man that cares for no one but himself, and the lack of disregard for others is shameful. It seems only until after people have contracted this virus and are critically ill do they then have concerns and realize just how wrong their actions lead them into this disastrous situation. A little common sense tells us to take precautions, wear a mask and social distance from others. Personally, I have a great deal of sympathy for the people in the medical field, because they are the ones risking their lives for the ignorance of others. I’m actually at the point that when someone goes to a hospital for help surviving from this virus, the medical staff should ask them if they attended a Trump rally. And if they have, then they should be the last to receive any medical assistance. Trump is directly responsible for the death of people.

      *Biden’s Tax Plan Would Make America Less Prosperous*
      Sept 29, 2020

      *If you used your free time on Saturday or Sunday to watch football, you may have seen an ad run by Joe Biden’s campaign in which the narrator says that Biden won’t raise taxes on anyone earning less than $400,000 annually. The ad perpetuates the myth that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was a “tax cut for the rich.” As Chris Edwards of the Cato Institute notes, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act “provided the largest percentage tax cuts to the bottom two quintiles—that is, the bottom 40 percent of U.S. households.”*

      Biden is targeting higher-income earners because he has to pay for his proposed $5.37 trillion increase in federal spending. This estimate comes from a recently released model provided by the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. (We’re aware of a loose estimate that puts Biden’s spending agenda closer to $10 trillion.)

      Biden has proposed $3.38 trillion in tax increases, roughly 43 percent of which would come from changes in the corporate tax code. (Penn-Wharton doesn’t take macroeconomic effects into account, so the actual revenue under the proposed tax increase would be lower than the estimate.)

      Almost 30 percent would come from changes in the payroll tax, such as eliminating the wage base. The remaining nearly 30 percent would come from proposed tax increases and changes in the individual tax code. The Tax Foundation estimates that Biden’s proposed tax increases would be the fifth-largest since 1940. The Tax Foundation estimates that Biden’s tax increases would increase revenues by $3.05 trillion on a static basis and $2.65 trillion on a dynamic basis.

      In all, Biden’s proposals would increase the budget deficit by nearly $2 trillion over ten years. Because of the tax hikes Biden is proposing, there will be less investment in the economy, meaning fewer job opportunities for Americans.

      Biden’s Domestic Agenda: More Government

      Biden is proposing large increases in education and healthcare spending. He’s also proposing substantial increases in research and development spending for water infrastructure, high-speed rail, clean energy, and more. For our purposes, we’re focusing on Biden’s education and healthcare proposals, considering that these are the two biggest-ticket items, but we’re also going to touch on Biden’s plans for Social Security.

      Biden would spend almost $1.93 trillion on education. His education proposal includes universal pre-K, which has been something that Democrats have been pushing for years. He also wants more money for Title I schools (schools that have a large number of low-income students), two years of “free” community college, and free college for low-income students.

      When it comes to universal pre-K, Biden’s platform states, “Provide high-quality, universal pre-kindergarten for all three- and four -year-olds. For families with young children, finding highly quality pre-K is a major financial, logistical, and emotional burden, with potentially life-long consequences for their children. As President, Biden will work with states to offer pre-K for all three – and four-year-olds. This investment will ease the burden on our families, help close the achievement gap, promote the labor participation of parents who want to work, and lift our critical early childhood education workforce out of poverty.”

      Universal pre-K may sound good, but Eric Boehm of Reason explains that “studies have found that most educational gains from early childhood education tend to wash out after a few years.” Specifically, a 2013 study front the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation at the Department of Health and Human Services found that “there were very few impacts found for either cohort in any of the four domains of cognitive, social-emotional, health and parenting practices” of Head Start, which promotes early learning, once children end 3rd grade.

      Biden’s plans for higher education are problematic for two primary reasons. He wants to provide two years of “free” community college. (It’s worth noting that Congress effectively nationalized student loans in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.) The first is that more government subsidies for college will make college more expensive. Granted, the expense won’t fall on students or their parents; it’ll fall on taxpayers. There’s already evidence of this. A study from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York estimated that the cost of college rises by 40 cents to 60 cents for every dollar that the federal government spends on education.

      The second problem is that as the number of people graduating from college increases, it diminishes the usefulness of a college degree. Bryan Caplan calls this “credential inflation.” Caplan explains, “If everyone had a college degree, the result would be not great jobs for all, but runaway credential inflation. Trying to spread success with education spreads education but not success.”

      Of course, we should make it easier for people to go to college, but more government involvement in the equation only makes it more expensive. There’s also a moral argument here. Students who take advantage of “free” college but don’t finish will owe nothing. (Obviously, there may be very valid reasons for not finishing.) That would be a waste of resources, but no skin in the game may encourage a student to drop out. A college education boosts income over the graduate’s lifetime. Why shouldn’t students be asked to pay for college?

      Biden’s plans on healthcare would mean an eventual transition over to completely government-run healthcare. Biden wants to lower Medicare eligibility to age 60 from age 65. This would add 20.6 million more people to Medicare over the next five years. Medicare spending represented about 17.4 percent ($775 billion) of federal outlays in FY 2019. Spending for this program is already projected to grow rapidly, from 18.9 percent ($1.16 trillion) of all federal spending in FY 2031 to 19.2 percent ($2.1 trillion) in FY 2050.

      Another aspect of Biden’s healthcare plan is the expansion of the Affordable Care Act to create a “public option” and larger premium tax credits for health insurance. A “public option” means expanding Medicare to individuals who purchase coverage on the Healthcare Marketplace. The goal of a “public option” is to undercut health insurance companies because Medicare only reimburses healthcare providers for about 87 percent of services provided. Insurance companies won’t be able to compete. The end result will be an eventual government takeover of healthcare. Private health insurance companies will provide only supplemental coverage.

      Ultimately, healthcare costs have been rising because of the increased presence of third-party payers, including government programs like Medicare and Medicaid. Government programs now represent a higher percentage of national health expenditures than private insurance. This has consistently been the case since 2008.

  10. The Republican party is the only party that’s aggressively trying to toss out your votes in multiple states. The Republican party doesn’t believe you should have the right to vote, and even when you do, they’re actively trying to make sure that your vote isn’t counted. Let that sink in for a moment.

  11. Patriots Vote and wait for All ballots to be counted

    High security for an election in a “developed” country… nono the USA is a 3rd world country for 99% of their people

    • Non-scalable barriers are being put up around the White House. Feds are trying to erect a “Green Zone” around DC like the military has in Afghanistan and had in Iraq. So, ya, pretty much a 3rd world country at this point.

  17. Those evil dumpers are going to loose their sick minds!! Stay safe Dems!

  18. Everyone will remember 3rd Nov2020! A Day when Trump Lose his Presidency…

    • Trump will concede when the Secret Service exits him off the premises and uses his head to open the door at approximately 12AM on January 20.

    • @Dementia Joe Jinping correct me if I’m wrong but Trump was impeached, no mate there will be no reprieve from justice, you seem to be under the delusion Trump has got away with his criminal acts unfortunately your wrong, 2021 isn’t going to be a good year for him and you watching your idol sent to prison….you poor old thing

  19. Republicans: “Democracy is great…just so long as we can subvert it to gain power and maintain our corrupt minority fascist rule!”

  20. Don’t sucker for him acting like he’s planning to lose. This is one of those rare cases when you’ve got to kick ‘em when they’re down. Vote.
