CNN: Obamacare 2017 enrollment hits record, despite Trump's threat to repeal

Even before the election, there were concerns that customers would be deterred by price hikes -- the average premium for the benchmark silver plan soared 22% for 2017 -- and the fact that some insurers pulled out of the exchanges.

However, administration officials sought to portray Obamacare as strong and crucial. Even if Trump and Republican lawmakers repeal the health reform law, they are likely to keep it in place for at least two to three years while they formulate an alternative.

Democrats put into place a policy that actually helps Americans WITHOUT any Republican support. So, fuck the media meme that Dems don't care about the working class in America.

What does Putin want in return for helping Trump win the presidency?

Putin is a gangster. Probably the most successful gangster in history. When a gangster does you a favor, he/she wants something in return. So, what does Putin want in return?

I stopped watching "Morning Joe".

I'm tired of being enraged on my way to work in the mornings.

Holy crap! I was at that very location in Berlin, Germany back in September!!!

It was an outdoor exhibition center when I was there, and it was very popular. I walked around there several times during my stay there.

During my trip, I took a cab, and the driver was very nervous that Trump may win the election. I re-assured him that Hillary was going to win. That all seems like a life time ago.

Trump gets a new performer for his inauguration.

Putin is lending him this guy:

Rogue One: Best Star Wars movie ever. Better than Empire.

Go see it. If you're a true fan, then you will really love it.

What made it the best movie in the entire franchise was that it's the only one that truly conveyed what was at stake and the real sacrifices that had to be made in order to defeat the Empire. The other movies (notably the prequels) were all cutesy and fuzzy.

The connection between Trump and the BREXIT vote is: government austerity

When democratic governments stop spending money on its people to directly improve their lives and cuts such spending which creates economic hardship and pain, then the public's faith and trust in government erodes. And, as the economic pain grows, populists leaders who offer a scapegoat (historically a racial/ethnic minority) find political success.

LeBron James wears a safety pin on the cover of S.I. What's the significance?

Since last month's presidential election, the safety pin has become a symbol of solidarity with those Americans who fear they'll be disenfranchised by a Donald Trump presidency. The pin is intended to show that the wearer is a safe person to turn to.


LeBron is a better human than Jordan who did jack shit when Jesse Helms was Senator from NC.

My original post got my racist Southern White Senators mixed up. I meant Jesse Helms, not Strom Thurman. Racist White people all look alike to me.

Tillerson has a direct, financial interest in lifting all sanctions against Russia.

Literally, he stands to make millions, maybe billions, of dollars if sanctions are lifted against Russia.

But, Hillary made a speech once, so...
