Re: A Motley Fool 7 Reasons

I thought the sum in question was to reduce the copay for the poor and is different from a subsidize to pay for the insurance?

Am I wrong?

I have a Juno Account and it has kept reasonably clear of spam, but today (Sunday the 15th) I have 27 pieces of junk mail. I wonder what has happened. Normally I either don't get any or maybe one or two.

Re: Fareed's Common Sense

Actually mass shooting get a lot of press but probably account for fewer than 100 deaths per year. What about the other 10,000 or so murders? Should we be bothered by the 18,000 per year suicides by guns?
