Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Just the latest in Trump's colossal fuckups.
Trump punts on health care until after the 2020 election


By Jeremy Diamond and Kyle Feldscher
(CNN)President Donald Trump on Monday night backed away from his push for a vote on an Obamacare replacent until after the 2020 elections, bowing to the political reality that major health care legislation cannot pass in the current Congress.Trump's statements come a week after his administration announced that it now agreed with a judge's ruling that the entire Affordable Care Act should be scrapped. The opinion was a dramatic reversal from the administration's previous stance that only portions of the act could not be defended.



"The Republicans are developing a really great HealthCare Plan with far lower premiums (cost) & deductibles than ObamaCare. In other words it will be far less expensive & much more usable than ObamaCare. Vote will be taken right after the Election when Republicans hold the Senate & win back the House. It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America," Trump declared in a series of tweets. "Also, Republicans will always support Pre-Existing Conditions. The Republican Party will be known as the Party of Great HealtCare. Meantime, the USA is doing better than ever & is respected again!"

3. *sigh*
I live in New Mexico. It's widely believed by ignorant people that Americans need a passport to go here. I hope there isn't a disaster here during Trump's administration.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

You just have to love the concept of "we'll give you great new healthcare after the election!"

Trump and the Repubs had two years of total control and couldn't get anything done, so now let's wait another two and magically it will be done.

As someone has already posted, plenty of his supporters will buy the BS and be waiting for great new healthcare.

He pulled the same bullshit right before the mid-terms. Remember that 10% middle class tax break and pay raise for the military?

I still can't believe he got away with that one (yes I can). By next year he'll be promising them free memberships at his golf resorts.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

The sad part is, I'm sure there are morons who believe shit like that and will vote for him again, looking forward to the healthcare "changes" that will never come.

I'm convinced a large percentage of the MAGA crowd know he lies, are glad he lies and feel it's something that he needs to do to fight the Fake News and Socialist snowflakes. There's even so called Evangelicals out there who are completely supportive of his lies.

It's literally how he built his company. Then on Tuesday, rather than paying he would sue you with a team of lawyers resulting in you having even less than you did Monday!

The hardest thing to swallow about this is there are thousands of doctors, lawyers, computer programmers, engineers, architects etc who are OK with this shit. And they're selling out for absolutely nothing except possibly a tax cut if they're rich enough.

If anyone had any doubts about this being a vanity project, those should be gone now.

That's really all he wants - a structure of some sort with his name on it, as president, that cannot be removed, unlike how the associations at his apartment buildings are removing his name from them.

Crowbar? It's held on with a couple small rivets. They could probably remove it with a flathead screwdriver.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Well I was talking from the other side.

Either way, it's far from something that can't be removed. It'll be gone before the week is over.
