SOLUTIONS: (As Mark Cuban advocates)

Health Care:
Max Effort needed to find solution to the country’s health care problems.
Create a health care program that is a hybrid of single-payer & open-market.
Do means-testing.
Problem is that we don’t need insurers for national programs.
Make the United States of America — the Treasury — the bank.
Would be means-tested but graduated up to 10 % of your income.
Would never pay more than 10 %t of your income for health care,

BLM;
Treating everybody the same is not the same as treating everybody equally.
As for Black Live Matter, there’s a consequence if you’re not sensitized.
The perspective federal government should have about our citizens.
Should not be a country run by two political parties but by citizens

SAYS: [Some of What Mark Cuban said]

“I’m just looking to say —and this may be arrogant  how can I solve this problem?”

“If there’s uncertainty, I’m not going to try to hide it. I’d rather be open about my uncertainties and hopefully influence”

“OK, what have we seen that has worked? How do we get from here to where we need to be?” That’s what I’m trying to help figure out.”
