Democrats Won't Like This!

"The single-payer health care system advocated by Sen. Bernie Sanders (D., Vt.) under the tagline “Medicare for all” would cost the federal government $32.6 trillion over the next decade, according to study released Monday by George Mason’s Mercatus Center, a libertarian-leaning policy center. Extending Medicare benefits to the entire population would require a massive tax increase as the government assumes the entirety of the health care costs currently born by individuals, according to the study, which aligned precisely with a similar analysis performed by the Urban Institute. The single-payer plan would reduce prescription and administration costs by streamlining operations, but those savings would be far outpaced by the cost of covering some 30 million uninsured Americans and eliminating copays and deductibles for all consumers.

It was written by a lot of really smart guys, and it has worked for over 230 years, and we're not using it anymore. THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

What Has Happened from1930 to Today?

At one time, even New York City Public High Schools actually hadgun rangeson campus.
Shooting was not just an activity for boys. Below is a picture of the 1931 girls’ rifle team outside Huntington (NY) High School. “It was common for high school students to take their guns with them to school on the subways in the morning and turn them over to their homeroom teacher or the gym coach so the heavy guns would simply be out of the way. After school, students would pick up their guns when it was time for practice,” Second Amendment advocate John Lott Jr. wrote in his book, “The Bias Against Guns.
[Yet there weren't mass shootings we see today.]
He also wrote, “Even in New York City, virtually every public high school had a shooting club up until 1969.”
