    NO UBI. The way to deal with it is to phase it out. Means test all current recipients and all new applications, then set a date in a few years after which all new enrollments will end, then get rid of the tax and the trust fund and pay for those left on it from the general budget until they all die.

    If forced to choose he would choose Trump. Trump is as good or better on foreign policy than Bernie would be and far better on almost anything else.

    Bernie is a flip flopper on foreign policy.He voted for the Kosovo war. He supported the Libya war. He supported saudi arabia's war in yemen when Obama was president. I voted for Trump in 2016 but I don't know about 2020. Because Trump supports saudi arabia,gun control & he bombed syria twice. But Trump did some good things like killing daca,the paris deal & he goes after the MSM!

    https://www.city-journal.org/bernie-sanders-expensive-spending-proposals It’s been a difficult time for Senator Bernie Sanders, who was hospitalized two weeks ago after suffering a heart attack and whose 46-year-old daughter-in-law has recently died of cancer. Given Sanders’s age (78) and health and familial challenges, his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination looks like an uphill battle. For the time being, at least, he pledges to continue his campaign. And so long as Sanders remains in the race, it’s worth taking his policy ideas seriously, since he has unveiled expensive new spending proposals on a near-weekly basis. All told, Sanders’s current plans would cost as much as $97.5 trillion over the next decade, and total government spending at all levels would surge to as high as 70 percent of gross domestic product. Approximately half of the American workforce would be employed by the government. The ten-year budget deficit would approach $90 trillion, with average annual deficits exceeding 30 percent of GDP. The $97.5 trillion price tag is made up mostly of the costs of Sanders’s three most ambitious proposals. Sanders concedes that his Medicare For All plan would increase federal spending by “somewhere between $30 and $40 trillion over a 10-year period.” He pledges to spend $16.3 trillion on his climate plan. And his proposal to guarantee all Americans a full-time government job paying $15 an hour, with full benefits, is estimated to cost $30.1 trillion. The final $11.1 trillion includes $3 trillion to forgive all student loans and guarantee free public-college tuition—plus $1.8 trillion to expand Social Security, $2.5 trillion on housing, $1.6 trillion on paid family leave, $1 trillion on infrastructure, $800 billion on general K-12 education spending, and an additional $400 billion on higher public school teacher salaries. This unprecedented outlay would more than double the size of the federal government. Over the next decade, Washington is already projected to spend $60 trillion, and state and local governments will spend another $29.7 trillion from non-federal sources. Adding Sanders’s $97.5 trillion—and then subtracting the $3 trillion saved by state governments under Medicare For All—would raise the total cost of government to $184 trillion, or 70 percent of the projected GDP over ten years Such spending would far exceed even that of European social democracies. The 35 OECD countries average 43 percent of GDP in total government spending. Finland’s 57 percent tops the list, edging France and Denmark. Meantime, Sweden and Norway—regularly lauded as models for the U.S.—spend just under 50 percent of GDP. The U.S. government, at all levels, spends between 34 percent and 38 percent of GDP, depending on how one calculates. Sanders’s agenda is virtually impossible to pay for. Adding $97.5 trillion in new spending to an underlying $15.5 trillion projected budget deficit (under current policies) creates a ten-year budget gap of $113 trillion. Yet Sanders’s tax proposals would raise at most $23 trillion over the decade. His Medicare For All financing worksheet contains $16.2 trillion in mostly-broad-based tax increases, which rises to $19.3 trillion after replacing the worksheet’s original $1.3 trillion wealth tax with the recent $4.35 trillion version. Social Security expansion would be financed by $1.8 trillion in new payroll and investment taxes. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the financial-transactions tax intended to pay for Sanders’s college agenda would raise $777 billion. The climate proposal and family-leave proposals each contain approximately $200 billion in specified tax increases. Repealing the 2017 tax cuts—beyond what is already accounted for in other proposals—would raise at most $1 trillion. Sanders has backed away from his previous support for a carbon tax. Tax rates would soar. Sanders would raise the current 15.3 percent...

    Bernie would not be any better than Trump on foreign policy, he'd be far worse on the Fed because he'd nationalize it and print zillions of dollars for his communist initiatives and he'd absolutely destroy civil liberties with an out of control micromanaging communist tyranny, so unless all you care about is drugs then let's stop talking about him. The USSR is what Bernie wants and that's not constructive.

    It's the being personal friends that has nothing to do with how much they have in common, I never said they didn't have anything in common, I said Ron had far more in common with Trump even though he is not friends with him because he never worked with him personally.

    The Trump administration plans to unveil efforts on Friday to crack down on counterfeit and pirated goods sold on major e-commerce sites and urge companies to do more to vet third-party sellers and increase self-policing efforts.Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf and White House adviser Peter Navarro will be among officials at a news conference on Friday to discuss the effort at the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center in Arlington, Virginia, administration officials said on Thursday. Foreign sellers face little risk of prosecution, an administration official told Reuters, so strong U.S. government action "is necessary to fundamentally realign incentive structures." Law enforcement agencies are planning "immediate actions" to identify counterfeit goods and seek "all available statutory authorities to pursue civil fines and other penalties against these entities," according to a DHS report reported by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday and confirmed by an administration official. The Trump administration is also seeking legal authority "to explicitly permit the government to seek injunctive relief against third-party marketplaces and other intermediaries dealing in counterfeit merchandise," the official confirmed. The official said that if companies adopt the best practices, the administration believes it will substantially reduce trafficking in counterfeit and pirated goods.

    Being friends on a personal level due to having worked together on common issues has nothing to do with how much they have in common, no matter how bad you think Trump is Bernie is 100X worse, Trump is far closer to Ron and Ron would be working with him on far more than he worked with Bernie on if he were still in the House just as Rand does in the Senate. Bernie is a USSR style communist.

    Working on a few issues together where they overlap has nothing to do with whether Ron would vote for him. Even if we take Ron's quote about Trump out of context and assume it was absolute under all circumstances and that his position hasn't changed now that Trump has an actual record in office it doesn't matter, he would be even less likely to vote for Bernie, he'd vote 3rd party or not vote. Bernie bro.

    Trump and Ron are on the same page on far more issues, Bernie is an unrepentant communist tyrant. Ron may have worked with Bernie but he would NEVER vote for him, he'd be far more likely to vote for Trump, vote third party or not vote.
