Donald Trump, Wannabe Canadian

If you missed it over the weekend, I read Donald Trump's long-forgotten 2000 campaign tract and found a politician who once believed that America should transition to a universal, Canada-style single-payer health care system.

I seem to have been the only person who actually went back and checked the thing out. Over the weekend Trump lit up a Tea Party rally in South Florida, and answered questions about his more current diversions.
