The Zika crisis will hit throughout the SE "red" states, especially among the poor (majority white), that have not accepted Medicaid expansion or the ACA. Can the Democrats campaign for an expanded health agenda for all health issues with this?

On Jan 1, 2016 Social Security issued a zero increase. We need to change the formula and it must address Cost$ of Food and Healthcare. Also we needs some kind of action to Stop any party from not "Giving Advice & Consent" on Presidential appts.

Fairness in education, health care, work, finances. Take from the rich and give to the poor. Be concerned more for others than yourself. Go into this to SERVE, not to make money and show off. There is too much greed no true Christianity Stop hating

Working folks & retires PAID for these programs. Retires continue to pay for Medicare. They are not freebies. Welfare & foreign aid ARE freebies. Why do Republicans never bash them? Because every cent spent winds up in the pockets of big business?
