Elaine Parker of Job Creators Network writes at Townhall about the latest Democrat presidential debate, in which the potential candidates outdid themselves in promoting radical big government takeover of all aspects of American life:

On Thursday, 10 Democratic candidates took the stage for the third debate in the 2020 race for the White House. And let’s just say, crazy town is at full capacity with this crew and the policies they support.

For the most part, 2020 Democratic candidates support socialized medicine; more specifically Medicare for All or a flavor of it. In short, the program would eliminate private health insurance for roughly 200 million Americans and replace it with government bureaucracy.
