Price Says 'Nobody Will Be Worse Off Financially'

So let's recap shall we...

EPA's Pruitt says, " I don't 'believe' CO2 causes global warming".

Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price said on Sunday that he believes "nobody will be worse off financially" under the Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

So there you have it.
We just have to believe my friends. Hallelujah!

Price Says 'Nobody Will Be Worse Off Financially' Under GOP Health Care Bill

"I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we’re going through," Price told Chuck Todd on NBC News' "Meet the Press."


We need an INDEPENDENT investigation!

The Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman is Richard Burr, R-North Carolina. He was an active backer of Trump during the campaign. He even boasted about getting the FBI involved in investigating Hillary Clinton.

Congressman Devin Nunes, R-California is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a former member of Donald Trump’s transition team who, prior to seeing any evidence brought forward, declared..."there's no evidence".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was part of Trump's campaign with repeated contacts with Russia during the campaign. Although he has recused himself from participating he did appoint the current Deputy Attorney General.

With these players in charge it's difficult to imagine a fair and impartial investigation can take place.
We need an independent committee outside of the political realms.

Dems threaten to pull support if Russia probe not 'legitimate


Supposedly Paul Ryan is the Republican Party's "policy wonk".
He is the one they turn to for details and the media fawns over as "intelligent".
The fact that he said this yesterday shows he doesn't have a grip on on even the basics of how insurance works.
Or, he really does know how insurance works and was preying on the ignorance of those who don't understand how insurance pools operate.
Either way it's a very troubling thing to say.

Paul Ryan: “The conceit of Obamacare,” he said at his press conference on Trumpcare, is that “young and healthy people are going to go into the market and pay for the older, sicker people.” That’s why Obamacare is in a “death spiral,” he noted.

The insurance corporations support this Republican bill. One of the many reasons is that the ACA requires at least 80% of our premiums we pay into the insurance pools goes towards actual health care. If that does not happen we receive a reimbursement check.
This goes away with GOPcare.
Interesting that the AMA, AARP, Hospital groups, Doctors, care givers, consumer groups, etc are unanimously opposed to this and on the support side are insurance corporations and the wealthy who will receive a heafty tax cut. Especially those making over $700K per year.

This bill will cause death and bankruptcy.

Who will investigate tRump/Russia?

The Senate and House investigation wings are headed by former tRump campaigners.
We can't trust the DOJ and Comey's FBI is questionable based on this last election (Hillary emails).

Will we ever get a fair hearing?
Is it possible that so much will be uncovered in initial Congressional investigation that it will force Congress to refer to an independent prosecutorial committee?

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.


Here is a cool dot gov site where with a simple registration and you can track bills.

This one is SB-562.



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.
