Howard Schultz is on The View saying the Medicare for All is free.

Free government healthcare. I took that to mean that no one who would have to pay into Medicare premiums.

I always thought that we would have to pay some premium or extra taxes, but it would still be much less than private insurance.

Am I wrong? How would he get such an idea?

I'm adding this.

He just said the important issues are not abortion or race but financial security.

Now, we know where this guy is coming from, in my opinion.

Watching my 401, the stock market is a f***ing yoyo.


A nearly 700-point gain in the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA and a surge in the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP midday Friday has resulted in the equity market seeing panic-like buying. The moves come on the back of dovish comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell during a panel discussion with his predecessors in Atlanta.


Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said Friday he's flexible about future monetary policy moves, proving some comfort to investors that have grown anxious about the rate-hike path of the central bank as signs of slack in the global economy appeared to mount.

Are some entities using the stock market to scare some people into selling so they can buy at a bargain?

I admit I know very little about what i would call the backroom deals, but these wild swings just don't seem normal. Then again, what is normal these days.
