Trump Insures a Million More!

Trump Healthcare Confusion

Big BREAKING BAM BOOM.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) just came out, and Mitch McConnel’s Senate version of Trumpcare takes insurance away from a million less ppl than Ryan’s House Trumpcare bill!  22 million ppl get the boot instead of the 23 million that Paul Ryan would leave sick in a gutter to die!

That’s wonderful.  Really helps Trump keep his promise not to take away Medicare or Medicaid from Americans.  Oh, except BULLSHIT.  It totally still rips the programs from the needy.

Trump blames the evil of the bill on Democrats, Tweeting like a drunken mama-basement keyboard warrior that the Democrats aren’t helping be complicit in killing the now-popular Affordable Care Act by writing its heartless replacement Law.  It’s rough owning the Presidency, the House, and the Senate when trying to force shit legislation through, huh, baby-hands?

There are Monsters in your Closet

Trumpster brownshirts actually, ACTUALLY believe Trump’s BS. It’s frightening. When Goebbels was Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, he said:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” ~ Joseph Goebbels
Trump is just following a playbook, but adding in an infinite amount of little, stupid lies. He suffocates people around him in little, ridiculous lies so they are forced to look straight ahead or drown.

AARP Versus TrumpCare

AARP against Trump
At AARP, we strongly oppose the Senate health care bill that was introduced yesterday.
The bill includes an age tax that would let insurance companies charge people ages 50 to 64 five times more for health coverage than anyone else while cutting Medicaid and Medicare funding.
We will continue to fight this bill. But with the Senate likely to vote within the coming days, it is extremely important for you – our 38 million members – to call your Senators at 844-222-0110 AND tell them to vote NO on this health care bill.

Feast Your Eyes on Trumpcare

Trumpcare McConnell

Mitch McConnell has been cooking up a Medicaid-gutting bill that just like Paul Ryan’s House version, would kick tens of millions of Americans off their healthcare and completely annihilate Planned Parenthood.  Everyone knew it was going to be bad, as only old Republican white men were putting it together behind locked doors in the dead of night and had planned to drop it on the floor for a vote with next to NO time for anyone to read it first.  Forget about the fact that there would be no Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score run on it.

Today, however, the full truth was unveiled on America, as Mitch McConnell cleared his throat of this infected phlegm of a bill in a giant belch.

WAPO –>  https://www.washingtonpost.com/powerpost/senate-gop-leaders-set-to-unveil-health-care-bill/2017/06/22/56dbe35c-5734-11e7-a204-ad706461fa4f_story.html?utm_term=.ee5e854d1b13

And, full text of the bill here:

CNN –>  http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/22/politics/republican-health-care-bill-text/index.html

It gets rid of the “Net Investment Tax” (a capital gains tax) for people who make more than $250,000 per year).  A gift to the wealthy by the wealthy that prevents healthcare from being funded at all, ever.

Preexisting conditions are no longer protected for Americans under the Republican bill.  But, as much of an affront this is to Americans not suckling a silver spoon, it is STILL not cruel enough for many Republicans, who lambast McConnell’s Trumpcare bill as “Obamacare lite.”  They want it leaner and more cruel:

CNN –>  http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/22/politics/republicans-resist-health-care-bill-support/index.html

Bottom line is that the 142-page bill is Dead on Arrival (DOA, as they say).  Not a single Democrat is a mile away from even bothering spit on it as they are flushing it down, and multiple Republicans can’t even read it without spitting up in their mouths trying not to vomit.

CNN has a nice graphic that includes a list of the Republicans you will want to keep an eye on as likely no-votes.

Republicans To Watch Healthcare Bill WPYou’ve probably seen the 24-hr news-crack networks (like CNN) are focusing on this list.

Crossing into op-ed territory, here:  It’s condescending to have to listen to these asses who obstructed EVERYTHING President Obama tried to accomplish for us and have tried obsessively to take the ACA away from us just to spite the “colored boy” whodunnit.  None of these multi-millionaires gives a lick about working class poor or that dwindling dodo bird, the middle class.  They represent the wealthy and con the rest of us into believing that:

  1.  The rich will shower you with crumbs if you love and bow down low to them,
  2.  If you bow down obediently enough to them that you will be them, of course, and
  3.  “You aren’t the filthy poor you see in the mirror.  You are us, the gilded select.  And, anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to take it from you.  Your birthright.”

Don’t let them make you forget:

“I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. Goddammit, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man; no purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our Great War is a spiritual war. Our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised by television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won’t; and we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” ~Tyler Durden, Fight Club, 1999 (Chuck Palahniuk)

The Georgia Dumpster Fire Burn Continues

GA Special Election WP

And, in the end, it wasn’t all that close.  Ossoff tapped out.  There was voter suppression and voter intimidation rampant.  Those stories will surface.  And, like every other time:  nothing will be done about it.

Breathe.  This was Newt Gingrich’s old district.  Not a place Democrats waste money trying to flip.  Boy, we shre paid for a whole lotta nothing this time around.

In Flames in South Carolina

SC Special Election WP.jpg

This was expected.  This is never a place Democrats win.  Trump won here.  if it turned out that Donald really was screwing Ivanka; that Barron was their lovechild; and that there were four sons and there is early home video of him drowning them in a bathtub full of champaigne right before a 5-way orgy with Russian hookers, baby-hands would still win SC05.   They’re all pretty much focused on saving confederate war memorials.  They’re too far gone to save, really.

Therefore, we didn’t spend much DNC or DNCC campaign fundraisubg assets there.

We did pick up significant margins.  So, there’s that.

Extraordinary Measures

It was on this day in 1953 that the US executed Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for treason and espionage against the United States.

64 years ago, they fried in electrified chairs.

Rosenbergs WP

Sizzled.

History Channel –> http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/julius-and-ethel-rosenberg-executed

That was supposed to be a lesson to all those who would follow that there are consequences to one’s actions. Especially — ESPECIALLY — when those actions include colluding with an enemy of the state. Imagine what the punishment might look like if it included throwing US Presidential elections.

No, go ahead. It’s OK. Be like John Lennon. Imagine. There may be no facts in their inbred bubble, but Truth and Justice will always break through that kind of firewall.

Side note, Donald Trump was pretty much a toddler when the last US execution for espionage was carried out. Reminds me of a song of cycle:
