    Medicare for All and nothing else, this is disgusting and roughly what the entire cost was for my wife and my daughter (who immediately was assigned a deductible upon birth).

    It’s nonsense. With good health insurance it still cost my wife and I $5,000 when my son was born. Actual bill before some were “covered” was like $50k. Who knew an epidural, which took maybe 20 min, cost $20k.

    It's a good thing the Family Values Party is the one standing in between America and free healthcare, paid maternity leave, free daycare, free college -- you know, all those things that might incentivize people to have more babies.

    Republicans: “We like this health care system where delivering a child will cost you $10k+.”

    Democrats: “Okay, well people can at least have an abortion if they need, so that’s a plus.”

    Republicans: “Now hold on there, buddy...”

    Democrats: “Can we at least have real sex education in schools instead of some abstinence only garbage?”

    Republicans: “What is wrong with you people?” Can we at least reach a bipartisan agreement where you lose your life savings in medical care costs, can’t have an abortion, and are only taught the Bible in schools?”

    Democrats: “...no...”

    Republicans: “Obstructionists!”

    Media: “Republicans attempts at bipartisan agreement turned down by Dems”

    So I'm not following this thread that closely and I see that there's a real narrative developing where Warren is supposedly not a believer when it comes to the potential disruption of automation. Whether or not that's true/argued in good faith, is there any reason to believe she wouldn't take policy positions that are ultimately supportive of the actual working class and specifically those that stand to be most impacted by continuing advances in automation?

    I’m glad the medical insurance industry is trying to get people to have less babies. Good for them.

    It’s too bad we don’t have anything objective to discuss on this topic, like recent polls showing her in third, or even second in her home state.

    We can talk about favorable poll momentum or enthusiasm within groups of most likely voters, both of which are favorable to Warren.

    She is currently trailing both Biden and Sanders in most recent polling.

    Two new polls today:

    Politico/Morning Consult National
    Biden 33 Sanders 21 Warren 16

    Emerson New Hampshire
    Biden 24 Warren 21 Sanders 13

    This is such a winning issue when this race pivots to the national election. No one trusts the Republicans on health care and every voter is frustrated by health care.

    If Warren and Sanders want to knock out Biden, they take this issue away from him.

    Trying to haggle during labor is pretty hard

    Good choice if you don't really want kids. I love my little guy and he, along with my wife were well taken care of, but its frustrating when you pay thousands of dollars a year and anytime you have a medical bill you still have to pay on top of it. Still paying that off.

    Economist/YouGov National 8/22-9/10:

    Biden 26, Warren 26, Sanders 16

    This pollsters past four in the last month have been:

    26, 22, 14
    25, 21, 14
    22, 19, 18
    23, 20, 16

    YouGov is another pollster getting consistently a little out of step with everyone else polls

    going to be interesting which of these (Morning Consult is another) ends up having figured something out or if they're in the vein of Rasmussen, internally consistent but just not getting accurate results

    Lyrtch. This was the purpose of the hypo. The polls are all over the place on Warren. Either she has eclipsed Bernie and is closing in on Biden, or her rise is exaggerated. That wouldn’t be a surprise btw since many have said that the media would attempt to prop up a female since few wanted to see the race winnow out early and come down to a pair of nearly 80yo white dudes slugging it out. Gonna be interesting to see what happens...
