    Trumpcare is nothing but Legislative EVIL

  2. September 18, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    Never forget….ALL versions of Trumpcare are nothing but TAX CUT BILLS masquerading as Healthcare bills.

    • September 18, 2017 at 4:16 pm

      They’re also all straight REPEAL. They’re not replacing anything, just going back to what was tanking the industry.

      Exactly! Cannot understand doctors like Cassidy who took a vow to DO NO HARM and think it’s okay to play with people’s lives like this!

    THIS version of Trumpcare is going to just take money from those states that expanded Medicaid…and benefits those with sociopathic Governors that refused to expand Medicaid…think about that.

    Joe Biden: ‘WE ARE BY FAR THE GREATEST, POWERFUL, DECENT NATION IN THE WORLD’

    https://i1.wp.com/kctv.images.worldnow.com/images/17932787_BG1.jpg?zoom=2

    Joe Biden and wife, Jill Biden, kicked off the 2017-18 season of the Bryan Series, the annual lecture series put on by Guilford College. …
    Biden said he’s worried that the United States is at risk of losing its leadership role in world affairs because some recent foreign policy decisions — he didn’t cite any specifically — have put American interests ahead of American values. … “… We are in the position — if our values sustain who we are — to be able to bring the world together in a way that it hasn’t been,” he continued.

    “And here we are deciding ‘America first?’ Ladies and gentlemen, ‘Make America great again?’ ” … “We are by far the greatest, powerful, decent nation in the world. Ask yourself this rhetorical question: Do you think there’s any nation in the world — any leader — who would trade places with any place but us? …

      We WERE! We are NO LONGER the greatest, powerful, DECENT nation in the world. What’s so great about a country who will take healthcare away from it’s citizens for tax cuts for the wealthy, what’s powerful about a country who preys on it’s weakest citizen and what’s decent about a country who will not protect citizens who were brought here as kids only to kick them out, not give them citizenship when they are paying taxes, working, bought homes and have children born in this country?

      When I saw that (expletive deleted) saying those words, I wasn’t sure I’d heard him right, and I couldn’t watch any replays because he sickens me and the sound of his voice sickens me. Thanks for proving I’d heard that (expletive deleted) say that, because it’s all so surreal you think you’re the one going crazy!

      GA NCLB.

      I could write a book on how infuriating this is, but a couple of points.

      1) PBO speech to Cantor Fitzgerald was announced EONS ago (in FUBAR crisis-a-minute world) — from April 24:

      2) But now that the date of PBO’s speech nears, MSM can ramp up click bait with headlines that read: “Obama Goes From White House to Wall Street in Less Than One Year” — which makes it sound like PBO has a corner office on the executive level of some Wall Street firm, and to add to the click-bait factor, mention HRC in the sub-heading:

      but the article is about “Ex-president speaks to Carlyle, Cantor, Northern Trust.”

      This breathless tweet is infuriating BECAUSE OBOTS knew about this 5 frigging months ago!!!

      3) The Obama Foundation Center in Chicago is an ENORMOUS, city-scale project, and MONEY DOES NOT GROW ON TREES. Cities have taxes, fees, licenses, etc. to gather money, but PBO is ONE PERSON.

      For him to establish, nurture, maintain and grow a city-scale (or small-state style project) means that he will need dollars — we live in a capitalist society, but also a white supremacist one, so that IOKIYW (it’s OK if you’re white), but let’s attack THE LAST LEGITIMATELY ELECTED PRESIDENT for ensuring his project is a success.

      end of rant (for now, at least, LOL)

        In their eyes capitalism is bad the moment the money goes into pockets that aren’t white.

        Guess they have to cover up the dismal and pathetic MOAR, hardly shook the world, eh? Besides, the very name ‘Obama’ sells. They miss all the $$$ they once made publishing shit about PBO, all the while he got on with the work he was born to do. And is still doing. And will keep doing ~

    Hello TODbots on a gloomy sad looking Manic Monday Afternoon.
    I didn’t watch the Emmys. Never my thing these award shows.
    So Jedediah Bila, the Neo-Con on the View announced her departure today? Hmm?
    Sean Spicer was at the Emmys? For what, exactly? Normalizing all his dastard lies? Shameful.
    Thank you, NW for the ❤ You've show Us at TOD 🙂

      I hope everything comes to light with irrefutable proof, and that she does so. It would be beyond my wildest hopes and dreams that this come true and that I live to see all of these low-lifes having to pack up and Hillary with an army of smart, dedicated public servants move in. Even better if they cabal is led out in handcuffs by federal marshals.

      I hope she keeps hinting at it and driving Trumpbots out of their skulls.

      Trump straight-up said he wasn’t sure he’d accept the legitimacy of the election had Hillary won.

      And everyone knows damn well she won the popular vote.

      With information trickling out that Russia helped rig the vote totals in those swing states JUST ENOUGH, the Trumpbots have to know at some level that it was stolen, and that has to eat at them.

    The Smithsonian Channel Aerial America series featured Ireland and did a segment on The Obama’s visit, with shout out to Cousin Henry and how the visit affected the area then and now.
    So it’s headline news that PBO is speaking at a Wall Street company and getting paid for it? Jealous mofos need to keep my president’s name and his business out of their damn mouths. It is killing them that after a successful, scandal free 8 year presidency, he and his family are living their best lives: even more popular, affluent, loved, influential and ignoring the haters as they go about the world tending to their interests and having a good time doing it. Some white people just cannot stand it that anyone not white is living better than they are. Even after all of the road blocks, many POC manage to live a middle-class or higher life that gives the lie to white Anglo-Saxon superiority, hence the rabid hate.

      For the record most anglo-saxons across the water do not feel superior and there’s a strong sense of equality and welcoming. In general the Irish are poor and always have been. English working class pride got hammered going back to Thatcher and is about to take another hit due to Brexit fallout (which by the way was only a Referendum in which only a small percentage voted For so no need to go on).
      Citizen equality and respect is hard here it seems for so many reasons.

    Something has bothered me for awhile….. the sudden takedown of Louise Mensch by the “left”… even though none of her stuff has proven to be false.

    Have we again fallen for a Russian-orchestrated propaganda campaign to discredit someone?

    My mind is open, but I’ve just found it a bit on the weird side… it reminds me of the orchestrated rightwing hatred directed at Stephen Colbert, HILLARY, and others, (even Malcom Nance getting assassination threats, and he’s one that came out against her… and I trust Malcom implicitly, but… I still haven’t seen any proof that she’s spewing false propaganda.

    if someone can show me, that would be great.

    Seriously – go do what she suggests…. because that’s weird AF as well.

    GE TODville.

    I cannot believe we’re on the edge of our seats AGAIN, because GOP greed and inhumanity are hell-bent to repeal ACA.

    On a lighter note, a great read:

    From David Litt’s article (spoiler alert):

    “And then, President Obama began to laugh. Not his ordinary laugh, a self-aware one that was an act of thoughtful consideration as much as reflex. This was an expression of something visceral inside him, a place beyond even his formidable self-control. He clasped his hands together. His feet kicked off the floor. He rocked back into the couch cushions. For just a fraction of a moment, I even think he forgot which person was the president. I had never seen him laugh so hard, and would never see him laugh so hard again.”
