    Those 3000 people must be so relieved to find out they're not actually dead.

  • mackjeez (Sep 20, 2018)

    The GWU researchers who were commissioned by the governor of Puerto Rico also counted those who died in the six months following, in what they claim is as a result of poor healthcare provision and a lack of electricity and clean water.. This left the death toll numbers to heavy interpretation, they even included a large numbers of elderly people and people that died of natural causes. Even Harvard researchers pointed out they were not giving a precise figure, not even close, and that there was an eleme...

    I almost feel bad for laughing

  • S Austin (Sep 17, 2018)

    Trump has made sure that THIS Texan will be voting Blue ALL the way from now on.

    Nobody cares, dunce. Believe it or not, the universe doesn't revolve around "Austin city limits" and PBS.

    “running neck and no neck against Ted Cruz”😂😂😂

  • CareerFireman (Sep 15, 2018)

    WilsonThere's no excuse needed for being anti-Commie/Socialist, so what's your excuse?

    He sounds like my grandma in her first stages of alzheimers...

    Please let this nightmare of an administration be over already.

  • Pat Gannon (Sep 14, 2018)

    Follow the money!!! Who is profiting by keeping Trump in office? Hint: "ratings".

  • crystal chandelier (Sep 14, 2018)

    johnCaulder, Yes, obummer is still blabbering . He is a puppet, doing what he is told, just like the paid trolls on here. LOL. sad state. They ddo alot of denial. their poor brains. .

    "Medicare for all" is the reality in allmost every western country. -- AND IT WORKS !! -- There is nothing wrong with it... actually it is a really good investment in the country itself. Only healthy people can WORK, make money, pay taxes and could keep the stuff running. I really do not get why so many americans still think this is a bad thing.... especially exactly the people who benefit from it most!

  • Bladimir Valdes (Jan 18, 2019)

    Because Republicans afraid of people taking "their" money little they know they ain't the only ones paying taxes

  • Homer Dalaine (Jan 3, 2019)

    I would guess these are the people the term "ugly American" was coined for.

  • F That (Sep 13, 2018)

    Forget trump , take back the congress as to stop the damage being done to our environment, education, healthcare, etc. vote darn it, vote.

  • Max Mac (Sep 14, 2018)

    Is there anything that can get Trump removed from office? His behavior is not normal and continues, day after day to get more ridiculous. A dark time in America's history. Can you believe that this guy is responsible for appointing judges that will serve for decades when he can't make the simplest judgement calls on obvious tragedies. The republican party are complicit in abetting this madness. Vote out these republicans that disregard country for personal interests.

  • yin shah (Sep 21, 2018)

    Max Mac that’s your reasoning, not mine. My point is we can’t control what has been done, but only what is being done to us now. I believe i was replying to someone else. You need to chill and not take on everyone, even those who is in agreement with you.uj

  • Wayne Black (Sep 14, 2018)

    It's a real shame the Republican Party can't grow a backbone and kick the pos out now.There is more than enough evidence trump has no skills to be a dog catcher, much less a president of the U.S.

  • Kain Nosgoth (Sep 24, 2018)

    Even more of a shame that people don't know the REAL reason the Puerto Rican relief aid never got there: "El Frente Amplio", the Puerto Rican Trucker's Union.They used Hurricane Maria as leverage in opposition to Puerto Rican lawmakers passing Senate Bill #525 into law. That law now allows for UBER and other NON-UNION drivers to assist in public relief W\O interference or bullying from El Frente Amplio. It's hard to imagine that a group of people would put their own interests above the welf...

  • Aaron Brall (Sep 15, 2018)

    The republican part voted for him and over 50% of America voted for him because they knew he was the right man and what do ya know, Trump has don't great things to America.A stop to immigrationLowest tax rates in 30 Years Lowest unemployment rate in 18 YearsBooming economyStrengthened relations with other superpowers (Russia, North Korea, UK(That is just to name a few
