  1. Directly and indirectly we taxpayers paid for this event. What was the total cost and why was this money not used to address healthcare access inequalities in this country?

    Instead, we get the usual leftist cocktail of nonsense, cliches and self-promotion by power-hungry elitists.

  2. Thank you for your comment. It was stated several times during the event, noted in the program, and in our article that the symposium was paid for by the nonprofit Vertex Foundation. No taxpayer dollars supported this event.

  3. Is it racist that black males commit 57% of all homicides in this country? Yet they make up only 7 percent of the population. This is according to the FBI over a 30 year period. Maybe we should call on that population to step up, rather than blame the white Americans for their failure.
