Trump plans to cut funding to NATO

https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/27/politics/trump-nato-contribution-nato/index.html

Another win for Putin. The US really is controlled by Russia now. I don't think we can survive until 2020 elections at this rate.

Thoughts on joining Healthcare Exchange

Looking for some advice. I have a healthcare plan that's pretty decent overall, but has gotten insanely expensive. Over $400 a month premiums now, and I'm a millennial. This plan isn't part of the ACA, it was an older plan grandfathered in.

I can get a plan on the healthcare exchange for less than $200 a month. The downside is, it's an HMO instead of PPO that I have now, and it has higher max out of pocket costs (although it's a lower deductible.)

Is it worth moving onto the exchange if I can get a cheaper premium? I've had my current plan so long it makes me nervous to jump into the ACA options, but over 400 a month is a lot and goes up every year.

Andrew Weissman on Rachel right now.

He said every piece of evidence in the impeachment inquiry fits, and the evidence keeps building. He said there is no counter narrative, and all the evidence points to one thing: Trump is guilty of high crimes.

Basically the impeachment hearings had no effect. Half the country still doesn't care that Trump committed high crimes and betrayed America. 50% is not enough to get Republicans to turn on Trump in the Senate.

Sounds like Jury tampering.

A picture of just how bad today was for Trump and the GOP:

Very bad news. Menashi was confirmed by evil Republicans.

The American Bar Association said he was unqualified to be a judge. He's never tried a court case in his life. He doesn't believe women or minorities should have equal rights. He's involved in a criminal scandal related to DeVos.

And by a 51-41 vote (all Republicans but Collins voting in favor), he now sits on the 2nd Circuit of Appeals for life and has tilted the power of the court to Republicans.

Our Judiciary is completely destroyed for the rest of most of our lives.

I honestly do not believe America can be fixed at this point. I think this country will be an authoritarian dictatorship within the next few years.

Frustrated with Congress' limited ability to hold people accountable.

Anyone just endlessly frustrated with how hopeless holding people accountable is?

Trump is guilty. There is absolutely no doubt about that. Today's testimony alone is enough grounds to remove him from office tomorrow. And every single Republican, especially trash like Nunes, Jordan, Graham, etc. will never ever change their view no matter how much evidence comes out.

And since the DoJ is insanely corrupt now, we have no real mechanism to investigate Republicans who are helping destroy the country.

Trump is getting impeached, obviously. But he's not going to get convicted, which means he will go into the 2020 election openly cheating without a single real consequence.

Jordan, Nunes, etc. will face no consequences for their destruction of the country.

I just hate that there are so many evil, corrupt people involved with this, and we have no real way to hold them accountable. Voting them out isn't satisfying enough and is hard to do anyway.

I'm venting, but I wish Congress could to something like form an independent commission with prosecution power to start investigating everyone involved in these crimes. Nunes, Jordan, Meadows, Gaetz, Graham, Barr, Pompeo, Mulvaney, Kushner, Don Jr, Ivanka, Trump... ALL of them..

Referee files lawsuit confirming Jim Jordan covering up abuse at Ohio State

I doubt anything will happen to him, but if Katie Hill had to resign over a relationship with a staffer, Jim Jordan should be forced to resign over this.

I don't know how to get the House to start an ethics investigation into this.

John Bolton is a traitor.

After refusing to show up for depositions today, he put out an opening statement through a PAC blaming everything on Democrats.
