THE PUMP DON’T WORK, ‘CAUSE THE VANDALS TOOK THE HANDLES 3.11.2019 The Moderate Voice

Anyone opposed to Medicare For All ain’t got the sense God gave a goose. The Republican refrain that America can’t afford it can be found in Chapter two of their disinformation handbook entitled: “But Her Emails”. The healthcare industry is but one of the major business sectors in America to experience what is called disintermediation. Disintermediation means cutting out the middleman, and that, among many other things, is what Medicare For All does.

Fox Backfires Again: Asking Audience About Restaurant Tips 12.10.2019 Crooks Liars
You'd think everyone on Fox News would know better than to continue to ask their audience about anything. Remember the backfire when they asked a live audience to proclaim love for private insurance? It happened again, this time about tipping waitstaff at restaurants.

Syndicated columnist Michelle Singletary wrote a really good column on "tipping 20% no matter what." I highly recommend you go read it. Singletary says she used to feel that as a customer she had a "right" to deduct from a restaurant tip if the service or food was low quality. She's come around to believe that (a) no other worker has their pay deducted when they have a bad day, and (b) that it's the restaurant industry that shifts the burden of wages onto the customer that is at fault. Singletary also had advice for how to deal if you have poor service or a problem with the food. (Short answer: speak ...
