It was the envy of the world. Now the rest of the developed world has much better protections for their citizens than we do and we have a moron for president. No drama, just facts.  America is falling further behind and the other countries are catching up.  While China is investing trillions in establishing itself as a world leader, we are building a 16th century wall.
