Thanks to Trump and the GOP, a California single-payer healthcare system is now possible

Call your California state legislature and encourage this.

No more premiums.
No more copays.
No more deductibles.
No more fighting with insurance companies.

Thanks to Trump and the GOP, a California single-payer healthcare system is now possible

A 2005 study by the Lewin Group found that a single-payer insurance plan would save California nearly $344 billion over 10 years, primarily by streamlining bureaucratic overhead and relying more on bulk purchases of prescription drugs and medical equipment.

The study also predicted a significant economic boost for businesses because they’d no longer be responsible for employees’ health coverage. This, in turn, would probably spur job creation.

Now I see where Anderson Cooper gets his fashion style




More expensive than Obama/Biden did in 8 years

I distinctly remember the outrage at Obama for his travel expenses.
The current expenses now dwarf the previous administration's yet where is the equivalent outrage?



.

"By one estimate the president has already rung up as much in travel costs as the Obama and Biden families did in eight years – all at the expense of taxpayers"

Trump on track to spend exorbitant amount of taxpayer dollars on travels

What happened to the "Trump-Russia Investigation" PDF?

It was a linked here via Google Documents.

The link is dead now.
Is there another?

tRump speaks their language

And that language can be summed up in one word: hatred.

That is why they follow him.
That is why they adore him.

It's pretty simple.

Where's the Republican outrage?

$11 million taxpayer dollars on three golfing vacations so far and he's only 4 weeks in office. That's already more than Obama's first year.
Where's the Republican outrage?

For the luxury of his son Barron attending the school he wants him to attend we taxpayers are on the hook for the tune of $500,000 per day to protect the Trump Tower in New York. (Trump didn't consider this before running for office?)
Where is the Republican outrage?

He's using an unsecured Android phone and conducting security briefings in front of unsecured guests at Mar-a-Lago and allowing them to take pictures of the nuclear football.
Where's the Republican outrage?

His staff is using a private email server.
Where's the Republican outrage?

High-level advisers close to then-presidential nominee Donald Trump were in constant communication during the campaign with Russians known to US intelligence.
Where's the Republican outrage?

I tell you what, if this were a Democratic Party President doing this there would be multiple investigations and impeachment hearings going on right now.

They are slowly killing Obamacare (ACA)

The GOP strategy for eliminating the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA, Obamacare) appears to be revealing itself.

A "death by a thousand cuts".

This way they can kill it it piece by piece thus hoping no one notices their fingerprints on the body. Republicans are working on funding sources in order to shut them down and starve the ACA regulations. When the ACA can't afford to go on any longer they'll blame it on the ACA itself as the reason rather than steps they've taken. Rather than take responsibility.

This is the cowards' way. This is how cowards that don't want to face their angry constituents back home act. Rather than a headline grabbing full repeal they are trying to do the same via backchannel methods.

Major Blow to Obamacare Mandate: IRS Won't Reject Tax Returns That Don't Answer Health Insurance Question

The tax agency has stopped requiring individual filers to indicate whether they maintained health coverage or paid the mandate penalty as required under the law

'Vicious' Deportation

Racist jackbooted thugs are being turned loose.
Terror and mistrust in our cities and communities is the goal.

We must rise against this because no one is safe now.
They will be coming for you next. For your political beliefs, for your religious beliefs or lack thereof, for you name it but rest assured they are coming unless we stop them.


Art Acevedo, chief of police for the city of Houston, shared Stephens’s concerns, telling The Intercept that implicit in Trump’s messaging were two false notions. The first is that undocumented immigrants are responsible for a disproportionate amount of violent crime — experts have repeatedly demonstrated that they are not, and Acevedo said his decades of law enforcement experience supported those conclusions. And second is the suggestion that local and state law enforcement aren’t already focused on arresting individuals who violate criminal laws.

“We are charged with keeping people safe from predators and from thieves and from violent members of society,” Acevedo explained. “We’re not charged with going out and wasting and spending our very limited resources booking a day laborer or somebody that, but for their immigration status, have done nothing that would harm our society.”

Rather than engaging in “political theater” designed to please its base, Acevedo suggested the administration instead listen to the concerns of local and state law enforcement executives on the ground, who have long rejected seeing their officers used as de facto deportation forces.

“Sadly, if these type of ill-advised, poorly thought out public polices were to go through — where they try to take away my ability to control the workforce, to control the priorities of my workforce — there are going to be unintended consequences and those unintended consequences are going to result in additional crime,” Acevedo said.

Anyone remember that closed door meeting between Comey and Dem Congress leaders??


When they came out really pissed afterwards?

What was that meeting about and why aren't we hearing about it??

Why is he calling them "illegal immigrants"??

Plus, you mean to tell me he talked to the Prime Minister of Australia today and was unaware of this deal?
He's just now going to look into it but somehow knows it's a "dumb deal"??
