Headline from Daily Beast here:
“Part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven’t done much is because in part the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point,”
So if you gave them 10 years they could repeal Obamacare???
I don’t think Trumpy’s timelines were the main reason why Obamacare was not sent to the grave.
Y’all had 7 fucking years to get a plan together so when you rose to power you could rock it muy pronto.
Alas it was just a massive bitch-fest designed to get Republicans elected and I maintain that neither Republicans nor Democrats give much if any kind of meaningful shit about Americans’ health care.
It’s a political circle jerk.
From Bloomberg here:
“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” the president said in a tweet on Saturday.
If Trump was smarter he would fuck over all the Republicans who just fucked him over in the health care debate by passing universal health care.
He would fuck over all those free market assholes and people would actually respect him for making their lives better.
Now I understand he’s not bright enough to see the path forward because he’s trapped in his win/loss count which is really going against him at this point.
If he wanted to make America great again he would make millions of Americans healthier and pay for it and not be such a dick.
Headline from New York Times:
Senate Rejects Partial Health Care Repeal, 51-49, thwarting 7 year effort by G.O.P.
Republicans and Democrats have used the health care issue as a way to accrue political power. The Republicans spent 7 years denouncing something while not coming up with anything that would work better than Obamacare, and Democrats spent 7 years protecting a law that has serious flaws.
Nobody gives a shit about your healthcare, they care about how their stance on health care effects their political career.
From Zero Hedge here:
And, as Axios reports moments ago, Trump is reportedly “so unhappy with Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he has raised the possibility of bringing back Rudolph Giuliani to head the Justice Department, according to West Wing confidants.” Axios notes that in internal conversations, Trump has recently proposed the idea of nominating Giuliani, “a stalwart of his campaign.”
This is a tough call and I would end up saying that it appears Trump’s carousel of douchebags is about to spin into high gear.
America isn’t getting great again fast enough so let’s get some new assholes in here to get on that.
Headline from Huffington Post:
Chuck Schumer Says Senate Democrats Are Open To Single-Payer Health Care
Is this an indirect acknowledgment that Obamacare is not the great accomplishment they’ve been trumpeting for the past 8-9 years?
We wouldn’t need single payer if Obamacare worked.
Where were these bold universal health care Democrats in 2009 when Obama hit town?
Their timing couldn’t be worse.
From the Intercept here:
Freedom Caucus members went public about their fears of being cut out of the deal. Nevertheless, GOP leaders persisted, releasing a budget resolution this week with $203 billion in mandatory spending cuts and trillions more in other reductions. That infuriated the more moderate members of bunch. It also included a “deficit-neutral” tax reform that includes an unpopular tax increase conservatives can’t stand. Sound familiar?
If he weren’t such a dick and ball show you could almost feel bad for Trump.
Trump is just the meat in a Freedom Cockus sandwich. Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right….
Couldn’t happen to a nicer piece of shit.
