Insulin should have a co-pay of about $2. Or less.


u/Colorado1996 Jan 14 '22

I think there’s a strong case that insulin should be free. But ya I’ll take $2 or less


u/Reutermo Jan 14 '22

It is free by law here in Sweden. Have been since the 60s.

If ever there was a state financially and socially ready to leave the union, it’s us. If it could be done without closing borders or too big a disruption to transport and trade, i wonder what that would look like with a few decades of preparation.

With our ~54 electoral votes gone, the US would never elect another left president. It'd be Jesusland for real

If CA ever tried to leave the country many other states would follow suit.

I honestly wouldn't hate America splintering into several different countries.

Use Canada as the connector. Most blue states are either connected to another blue state or to Canada. If Colorado can be persuaded to join then New Mexico and Colorado would also be connected to Greater Canada. So if they all join Canada then the coastal and blue Midwestern states can stay together (Hawaii can also join if they want) and still be basically tied with China in terms of GDP.

Canada's economy is close to that of Texas so that'd be a consolation for losing the wealthiest red state. Canada also has a lot of land and untapped natural resources.

That's what the Jesusland map is. Basically the west coast, New England, north Midwest, and Hawaii join "The United States of Canada", and the rest of the states become Jesusland.
