How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

I do not believe so. We are all humans our creator made each of us different. Until we as a people get to reality we are allowed to think differently, have different traditions based on our ancestry and personal upbringing racism will sadly exist. We need to treat everyone the way we would like to be treated. The real threat to the United Sates is political divide. This nation has lost sight of what the working people want from their political leaders.
