The first step to UBI or crass vote buying?

quote [ Sen. Kamala Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, today proposed a big new tax break for average Americans.

The California Democrat wants to create a new $6,000 tax credit for families earning up to $100,000. The break would be “refundable,” which means people could claim it even if it exceeded their tax liabilities, by receiving a check from the government for the difference.

She wants to allow recipients to claim it throughout the year, up to $500 per month, rather than having to wait to get a lump sum after they file their taxes. ]

I think it is still too early for 2020 guessing but it is obvious some people are already running so here goes.

And Politico is hinting there is a deal to come between Bernie and Elizabeth Warren. But take it with a grain of salt this is the same politico that only last week said...

Bernie 2016 alums wary of 2020 sequel A large contingent of his former staffers is looking to other candidates to carry the torch.

which is total bullshit..they note two junior staffers who are looking for a job.

But they do mention one candidate I am interested in but have no idea if she has the chops it takes to get on the big stage.

And uncle Joe is making the rounds as well. And hold on to your hats Hillary is back on the stump...There is already been a parade into Iowa and Hampshire.

Democrats with an eye on challenging President Trump in 2020 are already making travel plans that could position themselves for a potential bid.

______________________

It looks like there is no doubt that Trump is running again, and I am still giving 2 to 1 odds he get primaried.... and 4 to 1 he wins and becomes the GOP nominee again. These stops he has been making the last couple of weeks are in 2020 battleground states.

That leaves open a 3rd party run down the middle, by the never Trumpers...it could get real crazy and have a left wing run if the Dems treat the progressive worse than they did last time...4 viable candidates running...wild. If Bernie /warren get the nomination that 3rd party run down the middle could be a split ticket reoublucan /democrat like what McCain wanted with Leibeman.

What was that old Arab curse..."May you live in interesting times"


Lets get through the primaries and then let the fun begin/

Question: Is Sen. Elizabeth Warren part Native American? Is that how she got jobs as a professor at Ivy League law schools?

Answer: Warren has not proved that she is part Native American, and no one has proved that she was ever hired because of her alleged racial background.


"While the vast majority of the individual's ancestry is European," he concluded of Warren, "the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual's pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago."
In short, the results pretty much agree with what Warren has been arguing for years.

From your link...showing that disgusting performance by Trump...

“Let me be clear. I never asked for, never got any benefit because of my heritage,” Warren said in a 2012 TV ad rebutting claims made by Brown.
