The repeal of Obamacare comes with a huge tax cut for our ruling class and I haven’t seen any Bill Gates or Warren Buffetts or other fantastic engines of capitalism (many of whom supported Hillary Clinton by the way) say they don’t mind partially funding American healthcare with slightly higher taxes.
Not a one.
Bill Gates is obsessed with human health — why would he not speak out about the damage that healthcare repeal will cause?
I guess we’re not all on the same side. Or folks are afraid of the Trump, it’s really quite depressing to see.
From CNBC here:
But the American Health Care Act has drawn fire from conservatives who want wholesale repeal of Obamacare, and who also oppose federal aid to help people buy individual insurance plans.
There ya go.
All along Trump has been blowing gas about cheaper and better and blah blah blah and now these 25 wing nuts are going to wreck the bill that is already substantially crueler than Obamacare.
Nobody has to wish Trump any ill will as these guys might bone him extra hard, maybe even grabbing his hair while they do it.
Headline from CNBC:
Paul Ryan says he has wanted to reform Medicaid since he was ‘drinking at a keg’
So when he says ‘reform’ he means cutting it off resources to less fortunate Americans either by circumstance, location, race, etc.
He hasn’t dreamed of giving something to Americans in a bad way he has dreamed of taking away from those who already have less.
This dude is a worse fascist than Trump because he has a more acceptable operating style and that makes him much more effective and dangerous.
I hope he drops dead.
From the Guardian here:
Following revelations last year that police departments had gained special access to the social networks to track protesters, Facebook, which owns Instagram, announced on Monday that it had updated its rules to state that developers could not “use data obtained from us to provide tools that are used for surveillance”.
You could say that surveillance for profit and selling advertising is a form of social control but obviously Facebook is not reaching the same conclusion.
In other words what’s good for the bottom line is not good for the po po!
