      I believe that the proponents of Medicare-for-All have a long way to go to prove their case.

      Here at home, I recall that the 2016 ballot initiative; #69; went down in an overwhelming defeat with the NO votes getting almost 79% of the total.

        It's hardly comparable, chb.   A small state, in isolation, simply can't mimic a national program.  

      • JohnInDenverJohnInDenver says:

        the no votes on the 2016 ballot initiative were an odd accumulation of believers who held

        • no government healthcare
        • don't disturb my company-provided insurance
        • how much? I can't tell, so I'm voting no.
        • don't vote for this without abortion/reproductive health being included
        • probably a variety of other incompatible positions.

    Interesting summary on the Colorado Senate status popped up on DailyKos elections yesterday. 

    Colorado State Senate Preview

    A district by district estimate, winding up with

    Overview: While Districts 5, 6, 15, and 22 are on the edge of the playing field, it would be a surprise if any of those seats were to change parties. Thus, control of the Senate will likely come down to which party wins two of Districts 16, 20, and 24, with 16 probably being the median seat for purposes of control of the chamber. Given that the battle for the Senate is taking place in seats that Clinton won by 5 to 9 points in a year that’s shaping up to be good for Democrats, they have to feel confident about where the fight is taking place. In order to hold the Senate, Republicans will have to either hold both Districts 16 and 24, or lose one of those two and pick up either Districts 5 (unlikely) or 20 (more likely than 5, but not by all that much). As a result, control of the Senate Leans D.

      It would be a huge comfort to see Ray Scott in the minority, since his re-election campaign consists of hating Prop. 112 and bragging that being assistant majority leader in the Senate would mean wonderful things for GJ.

    Anybody who hates 112 can't be all baddevil

    So much winning…the good times are going to last about as long as Donnie’s romp with Stormy  

    The report expects U.S. #economic growth to decline as #fiscal stimulus begins to unwind in 2020, at a time when the monetary tightening cycle is expected to be at its peak.

    • DavieDavie says:

      Yup, and the last gasp GOP will try to cut all taxes to zero before the 2020 election to revive their flickering hopes. 

      BTW — here's an article about how Trump jumped into the USFL and MAGAed it to death (spoiler alert — he used exactly the same tactics he's using today on the world).

      When Trump Made the U.S.F.L. Great Again

      Donald Trump’s chaotic foray into pro football was a precursor to many of his actions today, Jeff Pearlman writes.

    You don’t need an ID to buy an election, just to vote in one.

    This just in:

    Chief justice refers Kavanaugh ethics complaints to judges outside Washington
