Why would a socialist government inherently run budget deficits? Do you really believe it's impossible for socialist governments to have a balanced budget?

Also, the ACA is not socialist. It's the biggest handout to the insurance industry and there's not even a public option for insurance.

"The Affordable Care Act" reminds me of doublespeak in 1984. It's not more affordable. It's worse. Skyrocketing premiums and super-high deductibles.

Socialist government are not designed to be able to afford their policies. Look at Greece, Puerto Rico and many European nations during the Cold War and post Cold War. In a perfect world, yes, they would be balanced. But perfect systems don't exist in the real world. There is way too much government spending involved and not enough revenue.

And yes, you are correct about ACA. My mistake. I was more in reference to socialized medicine and wasn't clear about that. Thanks for correcting me.

This doesn't make sense. Of courses they are designed to be sustainable, but just like any other system or private corporation; they can fail if mismanaged.

And as you've corrected yourself ACA is far from being "socialist".

Not for all. Mine actually went down, and there are things I use that weren't covered in the past that are now covered.

Drink THE FIRST TIME:

1. Donald Trump mentions his wealth, or how smart he is.

2. A candidate mentions Benghazi

3. A candidate says, "This president..."

4. A candidate whines about not getting called on enough.

5. Someone promises to "take America back."

6. Trump interrupts someone by saying, "Excuse me, let me answer that…"

7. Anyone mentions Hitler, Nazis or Neville Chamberlain. Includes related imagery, e.g. "ovens."

8. The crowd cheers a racist/bigoted statement by a candidate.

9. A candidate mentions his poor/hardscrabble upbringing, or a parent who "worked every day of his life."

10. A candidate talks about "stopping Hillary Clinton."

11. Anyone warns the U.S. is becoming Greece.

12. Trump refers to himself in the third person.

13. Anyone invokes St. Ronald Reagan.

Drink EVERY time a candidate:

14. Claims a positive relationship with a minority. Also known as the, "Some of my best friends are…" rule.

15. Tries to speak Spanish

16. Tries to warm up to the Ohio crowd with an awkward LeBron shout-out.

Drink EVERY TIME you hear the word(s):

17. "I'm not a scientist."

18. "You can keep your doctor."

19. "ACORN."

20. "The war on Christians."

21. "Thug."

22. "Right here in Ohio."

23. "Culture of dependency."

TAKE A SHOT OF JAGER AT ANY MENTION OF:

24. "Kenya."

25. "All Lives Matter."

So this freakshow is tomorrow, yes? When does it begin? I'm kind of hoping the timing might align to permit me an extended (and boozy) lunch...

Because belittling women's healthcare is the true way to the American woman voter's heart.
