    No, they couldn't. It was fortunately just being aware of the situation and making lifestyle choices that could reduce the changes of it becoming severe. I agree with the last point, but I think many would be grateful for at least having the option instead of being denied for a variety of...

    Then I think it's fair to criticize the GOP regarding what they say they will do and what they actually do. They've had 12 years to come up with a better healthcare solution, and we don't even have concrete ideas from them. I don't think it's unreasonable to be skeptical that they will continue...

    Are there more details or just this high level overview? If it's just the high level overview that's kinda my point. We've been waiting for four years, and the GOP has had all of Obama's presidency to come up with something better. On a separate note, what are your thoughts on the GOP's...

    To be fair though one of Trump's big campaign promises was that we would have amazing healthcare. I've only really seen Trump and the GOP try to dismantle what we already have and I haven't seen an actual plan from them.

    I'm sure it meant the world to her for you to take care of her. That's definitely something that weighs on me, like if my parents were to get really sick or pass while I'm out of the country.

    What was the reason(s) you weren't able to take that opportunity? Yeah, Germany has its issues but it seems like a good place to live. It's on my list of places I'm considering.

    If we want to stop attracting some of the best software engineers in the world to the United States this is a great path to take! https://www.reuters.com/article/us-twitter-trump-germany/if-trump-kicks-out-twitter-theres-always-germany-idUSKBN2342CM?utm_source=reddit.com

    Ok, got it. When you say the trade-off is mitigated because local governments can do something, isn't it more accurate to say some local governments might be able to mitigate some of the risk, while other local governments either cannot or will not? On top of that, aren't his policies just...

    It sounds like you're trying to say that Trump isn't responsible for policy decisions that negatively impact minority communities because local governments, in theory, can try to fight these decisions. Is that the case?

    And to your point, at the state level, California has implemented stricter environmental regulations. However, that isn't stopping the Trump Administration from making threats. While it's true that local governments can make a difference, the reality is that many people will still suffer the...

    But do we agree that Trump's environmental policies are detrimental, and that they will have negative impacts on minority communities? If we're talking about the local level, then we can see that California adopted a clean slate record relief policy for certain convictions and arrests. Clearly...
