Trump urges speed on uninsuring millions
Trump is urging Republicans to HURRY UP and repeal the ACA, so that 20 million people can be stripped of their health insurance RIGHT AWAY.
The rich dude who has never had to worry about health insurance for a day in his life is in a big hurry to take it away from people who don’t have much money, because he’s just that kind of guy.
The rich dude who cut off benefits from the family health plan that were paying for the medical care of his nephew’s seriously ill little boy can’t wait to throw 20 million people off health insurance.
The rich scumbag is a rich scumbag, and he’s ten days from being president of the US.
Republicans in Congress are nowhere close to agreement on a major health bill that would replace President Obama’s signature domestic achievement.
Of course they’re not, and they never will be, because there’s no way to “replace” it without just doing the same thing all over again. They’re obviously not going to replace it with universal coverage via single payer, so what’s left is mandatory insurance for all plus subsidies, or nothing. Nothing is what we had before, and it’s all the Republicans are ever going to come up with. They are ideologically opposed to the very idea of universal health insurance paid for via progressive taxation. The alternative is no health insurance for the poor. There’s not some big unexplored country in between where people with low incomes get health insurance by MAGIC.
Mr. Trump issued a political warning to Democrats who might stand in his way, saying he would campaign against lawmakers, especially in states that he won in November.
“It may not get approved the first time, and it may not get approved the second time, but the Democrats who will try not to approve it” will be at risk, warning that “they have 10 people coming up” for re-election in 2018. That alluded to Democratic senators in states he won.
“I won some of those states by numbers that nobody has seen. I will be out there campaigning,” he said.
In 2000, during a family dispute about the details of his father’s will, Trump, who was by then fabulously wealthy in his own right, cut off benefits from the family health plan that were paying for the medical care of his nephew’s seriously ill young son.
That’s what he is.
