I think some in the Democrat party want to be more like the Nordic countries, I think they're calling it Compassionate Capitalism. I understand those on the right wanting to use something like a Venezuela instead. This: "The Nordic countries don’t actually do much of those things. Yes, they offer government-paid healthcare, in some cases tuition-free university educations, and rather generous social safety nets, all financed with high taxes. However, it is possible to do these things without interfering in the private sector more than required." Sounds a lot like what some Dems are wanting. Even some of the slings towards Bernie was that he owned multiples houses. Again, sounds more like the Nordic setup. That's great. Of course during the recession it usually goes up, went up to 10% last time. And has nothing to do with what was being talked about. ------------- Trump already working on the scapegoat list for when the economy falters: Trump Takes Swipe at Fed as Stocks Tumble President says Federal Reserve has ‘gone crazy’ on short-term interest rates https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-takes-swipe-at-fed-as-stocks-tumble-1539210531 ----------- wanted to add. We have people here that live in countries with Universal Health Care, let's just ask them. Do you like it? What's good, what's bad etc. Somebody ask Gilsan: "Does Portugal have universal health care? The SNS is characterized as being national, universal, general and free. It is national as it should be provided nationwide, although presently it still only covers Continental Portugal. It is universal as all Portuguese citizens and foreign residents have access to it." Would he give that up in favor of a U.S. type system?
