Trump seems to be in jubilant spirits since getting William Barr’s interpretation that the Mueller report exonerates him (despite even Barr’s interpretation saying the opposite), so he is in the mood to CELEBRATE — PAR-TAY baby!
So how does Trump celebrate?
• Immediately try to throw 20+ million people off health care
• Tried to cut all funding for Special Olympics and reduce education funding for blind and deaf until overruled by public outrage
• Reductions to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security that he promised he would never do
• Cut all hurricane relief for Puerto Rico (and withhold funds that have already been authorized)
And that’s Trump in a GOOD mood!
Or maybe Trump is NOT in such a “good” mood — maybe he is lashing out because he knows Barr’s interpretation of Mueller’s report concludes that the Trump Tower meeting with Russians, Manafort giving polling data to Russians, Trump calling for Russians to hack Hillary’s email and Roger Stone coordinating with Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks did not rise to the level of provability “beyond a reasonable doubt” as Russian collusion. And he does not want us to see the full scope of Mueller’s analysis of these subjects.
And even Barr admits that Russia committed crimes by interfering with the election, legitimizing the investigation of that crime, and that there are both inculpating and exculpating factors suggesting that Trump did try to obstruct that legitimate investigation by firing James Comey, firing Jeff Sessions, publicly undermining the legitimacy of the investigations, etc. And Trump sure as heck doesn’t want us to see Mueller’s comments on those.
And you know darn well that if the actual report were as exonerating as Trump is claiming, he would be ordering it released immediately. ANYONE who is wrongly accused of anything and HAS PROOF of their innocence, wants that proof of innocence made public and they want it FAST.
Trump has become the nation’s Death Panel.
Guns are America’s version of universal healthcare. There is nothing a dose of lead won’t cure. Have you ever heard of anyone having health complaints after getting brains blown off by an automatic rifle ?
Careful, Mr. Trump, if you take away the means of survival for enough of us ordinary people, who’s going to pay the taxes you rich people depend on?
REASON EXPLAINED: ACA is sometimes referred to as Obamacare.
(I’m sure it isn’t, but) the sleeping cat makes it look like a reference to the late Sir Terry’s Discworld. But the Discworld’s Death would never wear a MAGA hat
and of course, coverage for preexisting conditions is part of the existing health act, so be ready to kiss that good bye if it can not be renegotiated (and that one took a LOT of work to negotiate, but the team then was not lazy and knew how to negotiate).
He won’t be able to do anything because the House won’t hear of it. In fact, I fear not much will be done the next couple of years because of a Congress stalemate unless it is bipartisan.
There is an alternative to MAGA-Death:
USA has the lowest life expectancy compared to all other developed countries.
Make America Grim Again!
I wanted to go as the GOP healthcare plan for Halloween but I couldn’t make it out of the house.
Well, we need to do something about those greedy, selfish people who go and get sick after paying premiums, and then expect to be taken care of! We all know that only bad people get sick, and therefore it is well within an insurance company’s rights to deny treatment to them! They need to save that money for CEO bonuses, just like Jesus said!
Bottom line: MAGAts have empathy only for a very restricted group of their close kin and neighbors. Or, in simple words, they tend to be mean and short sighted.
They are going with the Pence Health Care Plan:
If You Die, It’s God’s Will.
Or, If You Die, God Doesn’t Like You!
