This should probably be renamed to American politics thread as it'll probably be overtook by only two ideologies...

@racob7: But it's the fate of (presumably) your country at stake in these elections, how do you find them amusing?

I actually enjoy having nice, calm, and civil talks with people about politics. People usually say they find it awkward talking to people in real life about politics, but I have never had that problem. You just always have to remember that people have different opinions on stuff.

Can we turn this in to THE politics thread please? So people can keep there discussions all in one place instead of 12 different threads on what type of fake tan Donald Trump uses?

Ok so, what do people think of the Universal Basic Income?

There have been a lot of threads lately that seem like the type that pop up on /pol/ on 4chan, except this is CV, and not 4chan, our rules aren't as flexible, so lets bump this thread and some other threads may be locked and you may be directed here. Enjoy!

@beast_mode999 You do realize 2 million jobs >>>>>>> 200,000 jobs, right? It's basic math. Also, around 2009, the Obama administration actually tweaked the definition of what having healthcare actually means, greatly skewing the numbers in his favor to bolster the appearance of the act. Lastly, those "millions" of healthcare plans gained by Obamacare include ALL health care plans, not just those from the Affordable Care Act. It doesn't take into consideration those who were already going to gain insurance, those who gained insurance due to their employment, those who were going to get one as a result of adulthood, those who were forced to get one because of ACA, etc. They're very vague numbers pushed by Democrats to bolster how "good" it actually is.

False 2 million jobs lost working hours... That doesn't mean 2 million jobs were destroyed.

What did they tweak the definition to mean then?

And those millions of millions of healthcare benefits gained by Obama care... Was the official number of people directly affected by Obama care

WAT? It's the same thing! People are still losing income, and money is still being lost in the economy! That's why it's THE EQUIVALENT of 2 million people being laid off. Also, some of those 2 million job hours loss were ACTUAL layoffs. The fact is that it's been killing people's income.

Lol no it's not. WOW. Please define what fewer working hours are please... On top of that please provide evidence for these 2 million lost working hours.

And I want you to give me the number of "actual layoffs" of those 2 million jobs.

On top of that during this prsesidency the 15 million other jobs were created.

15 million>>>> 2 million... Simple math

If you are talking about the CBO

There exact words were people would DECIDE not to work not "loose their jobs".

I'd like to see Gary Johnson at least participate in the presidential debates, I think a lot of people would be interested in what he has to say. He's reached 13 % in the polls fairly recently so 2 more points and he'll be be on the stage.

I'm not talking about Obama's total presidency, so bringing up how many jobs he created is totally irrelevant, but okay. Nice try though.

The nonpartisan CBO estimates that the decline will come primarily due to workers responding to changes made by the law to federal programs and tax policy. The agency points to the introduction of health care subsidies tied to income as a key factor -- which in turn raises effective tax rates as someone’s earnings rise, therefore reducing the amount of work Americans choose to do.

“Subsidies decline as income increases, reducing the return on earning additional income,” the report says. “That decline is effectively an increase in recipients’ effective marginal tax rate, so it generally reduces their work incentives through the substitution effect.”

Yes, a lot of people are choosing to work less, but that's because they HAVE to or need to. Obamacare is increasing their taxes while decreasing the amount of money they take home after taxes.

Instead of increasing their work hours to offset this, people are just deciding not to work at all.
