White House Admits Trump 'Insurance For Everybody' Guarantee Isn't Going To Happen

Source: MSN/Huffington Post

WASHINGTON ― White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney threw cold water on the promise that “everybody” would get health insurance under GOP legislation ― a promise that was made by none other than President Donald Trump himself.

“We don’t have universal ― the only way to have universal care, if you stop to think about it, is to force people to buy it under penalty of law,” Mulvaney said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

The expectation of everyone in the nation getting health insurance if Trump took office came from promises he himself made.

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said in January. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” In 2015, Trump similarly told CBS’s “60 Minutes,” “Everybody’s got to be covered.”

If Trump's promise is cruel, backward or racist, then he will certainly keep his promise. However, if the promise actually helps the work class or middle class, then you can be sure that it is a lie.

It's called Brownback syndrome. Less and less and less is MORE! We'll all be FREE! Free and totally screwed, but mostly free. You'll be free to snooze on ANY park bench you choose! How can that be bad?

7. Solution: send everybody to the Gulag. Mulvaney is subtly warning us...

“The only way to get truly universal care is to throw people in jail" - Mulvaney

Why not? Deport as many as you can and Gulagize the rest of us. Then we can all be Ivan Denisovich's

Showing more of the quote --

“The only way to get truly universal care is to throw people in jail if they don’t have it. And we are not going to do that,” Mulvaney added.

Uhh huh.

10. The one thing we can afford to do, and as a nation have a moral responsibility to do, becomes

Trump's greatest lie. So how is that president gig working for you Orange Anus? Ready for some down time at Mar-a-Lago? How about a Russian lap dance?

He was obviously lying. Some people are so stupid, or so blinded by hate that they can't see the forest for the crap being dumped in front of it.

20. Single payer, Mulvaney. Never heard of it, dolt?

And that's the key truth about dRumpf, in the last sentence. Every stated goal that involves violence, hatred, punching down -- all those ones are gospel truth promises that he'll never reneg on. Every statement that made him look like he wasn't an evil hatefilled nazi p.o.s., but was a 'populist', those ones were all lies that he intended to reneg on.

His actions are supremely easy to predict. There's no uncertainty about how he'll act, no confusion about which promises he'll keep and which he'll prove he was lying about. And all the 'hate violence war punishment death destroy' promises, he'll try to push them through by saying 'I campaigned on this promise, and got elected'. All the promises to help Americans, he'll be far too busy pursuing his latest twitter war, so he'll trot out a brain dead nazi like Mulvaney to explain the fiscal realities that make those promises 'inoperative'.

dRumpf is the strongest, toughest, most badassed man in the world, all his flunkies are terrified of him, quake in their boots at his approach. Unless that flunkie is telling him 'no, we can't help Americans, we can't afford it.' Then shitler slinks off whimpering.

21. You said it exactly, 100% right, but I would add one additional clause.

"If Trump's promise is cruel, backward or racist, or benefits him personally, then he will certainly keep his promise. However, if the promise actually helps the work class or middle class, then you can be sure that it is a lie."
