    The costs of education, housing and health care relative to wages/salary are far higher now than 40 years ago.

    Frugality only goes so far when costs rise so much.
    The tendency to funnel salaries, even welfare money into higher life maintenance choices is how the gap increases. Supply and demand it seems. People who never get above average income in their lives don't save for retirement, "sacrifice" for the concept of "everything right now", and are willingly funding the lives of millions who have a higher standard of living than their parents had without ever working a single day, and you can apply that at both ends of the income spectrum.

    Of course desirable things like education are going to have price increases as the demand increases and wealthier people are willing to pay more. Stop making these people wealthier.. work smarter, save and invest instead of buying that iPhone 11.

    Wouldn't it be simpler and much more effective to invest heavily in the health and education of Americans?

    All of the house gains were by moderate dems.
    The point being that thereís no sure fire formula. Moderates lost too, maybe less than others, but itís all highly dependent on where youíre running. Happens with republicans too, some of them disavowed Trump early because they felt it hurt them.

    College at state universities was free or nearly free for much of the 20th century. Why couldn't it be again?

    that's why RICH people come to USA from non-industrial countries with weak health care systems, and pay $100Ks CASH for treatment

    Poor people in those countries, just like in USA, suffer and die under-treated or not treated, or treated too late.

    Longevity in USA states that expanded Medicaid INCREASED while red/slave states that did expand Medicaid let their people suffer and die to spite that knitter Obama

    aka, negligent manslaughter by Repug state policy
    Will M4A maintain the quality of the care that people spend $100Ks?

    making public schools tuition free through 12th grade is just fine

    beyond that? RADICAL SOCIALISM

    In Texas, we pay for public schools through property taxes. My property taxes are 12K per year.

    I mean, it's free for the students.

    There's no tuition because of massive property taxes. Was that unclear?

    the establishment democrats helped Trump become president. they gave him lots of media coverage in the primaries in 2016 because they thought he was the worst candidate ever

    Its unclear that you understand how your and my massive property taxes came about.
    You have zero income tax and the State shifted sales tax, lottery$,... away from education and decided the homeowner is responsible. Thank your red team.

    And you whine, tinkle and fall apart like a fragile snowflake.

    There was a point in time that I thought you might have been level headed.
    Some people canít afford to pay em so sell your house and live to your standards,
    or stop your ing.

    Public school in Texas has now transformed itself to socialism because Darrin has decided his property taxes are massive.

    When did public school students in Texas K-12 first start going to school on the taxpayers money Darrin?
    So we can decide when socialism and communism began in this State?
