Debate is open for a bill that would cause 32 million to lose insurance, according to the CBO. A vote is planned to take place today. So far, Republicans have not found any success whatsoever when it comes to replacing the ACA in the Senate, and they only marginally opened debate over whether or not to even discuss the issue. The President has been largely inconsistent when it comes to the issue. It seems that this is a pointless attempt to discuss the issue again when still no consensus has been made and there is no compromise in sight. Even … Continue reading The Senate votes on a clean repeal of Obamacare. Again.
The Republicans narrowly opened debate over healthcare in the Senate, with Mike Pence breaking the tie over the discussion. This occurred following another tweetstorm by Trump, where he addressed the issue multiple times. Yet again, he pressured Republicans and attacked Democrats for being obstructionists, although their no votes make no difference towards the Republican majority in congress. While preparations for the vote were occurring, protesters shouted “kill the bill, don’t kill us!” and “shame”. They have a pretty good point. All the CBO scores of the differentiating Republican healthcare bills range from 23-32 million more people being uninsured under the … Continue reading The Republican healthcare disaster continues. For now.
Yesterday, the President called Obamacare “Death” in an attempt to respond to Democrats’ claim that the various failed Republican Obamacare replacements will cause people to die. Which is true. Saying that Obamacare is “death” is not. Time and time again, the Republicans have claimed that premiums would go down under their bills, which they would not, and that more people would have coverage which, again, they would not. They also claim that the rollback of medicaid expansion would be good for low-income Americans… again, wrong. We got some tweets related to the issue by the President early this morning. He … Continue reading The anti-Obamacare agenda is based in falsehoods
Chuck Schumer issued scathing words towards his fellow Democrat, Hillary Clinton, saying “When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” to the Washington Post. The Democrats have a new message which is focused on economics thankfully, although it does sound like the Papa John’s slogan. The new slogan for the Democrats is as follows : A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future One can only hope that this latest attempt to rebrand the party will bring back the working class voters who flocked towards Trump in … Continue reading Schumer : The problem was Hillary
It seems that the President is still upset about losing the popular vote. In recent tweets, he went after “Crooked Hillary” (a.k.a. the actual winner of the 2016 election). Jared Kushner also spoke about the election today, saying that the President did not win “because he got help from Moscow”. I’m sure Hillary is laughing at home as this White House falls apart. The reality is that the Russians heavily meddled in the 2016 election, and undoubtedly made a difference in Donald’s favor. More Americans voted for Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump. That is fact. Trump should be cherishing the … Continue reading Trump’s obsession with the 2016 election
He’s back! Trump took to twitter to attack someone other than the media. He railed against the Democrats as well as the “Russian Witch Hunt”, and even members of his own party. Let’s break these down piece-by-piece. Make no mistake about it, the Republican party is doing EVERYTHING to back their President. Seriously. They are throwing their own reputations on the line and rarely condemning him for his absurd and unprecedented behaviors. In fact, I would argue that the vast majority of Republicans are cowards who have been bowing down to the President, and now-independent Joe Scarborough would agree. So, … Continue reading Attack Democrats, Attack Republicans, Attack everyone : the Commander in Chief’s twitter strategy
He has gone from claiming that he would not cut Medicaid, to throwing a party upon the passage of the House bill, which did in fact cut medicaid. After that, he called the house bill “mean“, which lead to the birth of a senate bill which Trump said needed to be “more generous“. After that, when the Senate bill stalled, Trump went on a Twitter tirade where he changed his story multiple times. He went from repeal and replace to repeal only and then back to repeal and replace. This slashing of medicaid is only one of many broken promises … Continue reading The author of “The Art of the Deal” can’t come up with a compromise on healthcare.
