GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE

Well, after I huffed and puffed and explained here that a large share of the cost of universal health care would come from the companies now providing health insurance to half of all Americans, sure enough when I looked at some of the details of Warren's newly released health care plan, I found that almost half of its cost comes from taxing those companies for what they are now spending on health care.  I should have known this would occur to her.  :)

It's not too late to get into the race!

You're in strange company.

Billionaire George Soros likes Warren too. However, that's not necessarily a point against her and he detests Trump as much as you do.

Interview with Soros, an interesting fellow, who studied philosophy and originally wanted to dedicate himself to philosophy.

I hang out with billionaires whenever I can. It improves my credit rating. :)

I know that Soros donated money to Revolución Democrática, a Chilean political party which is about as left as Bernie is, without the burn, without the passion. They were criticized by much of the left for accepting Soros's money, but as long as there were no strings attached, I don't see the sin.

Professor, it sounds like you may be making the error that Matt Bruenig corrects in this piece?

Christopher M, I have just read the piece you referenced, and I can say with great confidence that I didn't have a clue! I would be very interested to hear Warren's response. Thanks for wising me up. :)
