Want to see some to see some thing really horrific?
They will join the 24 million whom Affordable Care left uncovered.
This post implies that the ACA is a failure in part because it left 24 million uncovered.
So hopefully SanchoPanza will hold the GOP's "replacement" to the same rigorous standard: if it leaves 24 million (or more) without high quality health care, it will be a failure.
I appreciate it. Dogma isn't talking points anyway; if someone wants to propose that "tax cuts for the rich are good for the working class" because someone mentioned "trickle-down" economics once, and won't look at the failures of 1980s fiscal policy as disproof of that proposition, then there's no point in trying to persuade them otherwise. Just like if someone wants to propose that Donald Trump is a perfect gentleman, and won't look at his taped recordings with Howard Stern or Billy Bush as disproof of that proposition, then there's no point in trying to persuade them otherwise.Quote: Face
Just thought I'd put it out there to encourage some ME level of discussion. His rap is on par with SOOPOO stating in real terms the effects of the ACA. Opinionated and biased, but real talk. Wild allegations and tired talking points strike me as the flip side to the "He's a Kenyan!" hogwash I had to endure the last 8 years. So to ME, I give thanks for your effort.
Also to ME, I'm of age now. If you need a running mate, I bet we could pull off a decent lefty/righty combo and nail that middle majority. I sure could use some of that lifetime healthcare ;)
To be fair, they didn't think they'd win until about October. And ironically, Obama and Trump now agree with regard to the ACA: if the GOP has a better plan, they're all for it, but don't just blow it up without a replacement.Quote: Dalex64
6 years with no alternative plan developed, and now they want to whip one up in 2 weeks.
The two-page synopsis also included allegations that there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, according to two national security officials.
I'm less of a lefty than you might think.
I'm just not mean-spirited, and I think the prevailing conservative social policy is mean-spirited, not "compassionate conservatism" as Bush once coined. I think it's a pathetic failure of execution, in a country as wealthy as we are, that anyone has to go without food or water or shelter or clothing or basic health coverage. A woman died last week in Portland of hypothermia after she was evicted from low-income housing and couldn't take care of herself.
I perceive the conservative movement as one that implies people who are failing deserve to fail, and people who are succeeding deserve to succeed. But that philosophy implies that Trump and I are deservedly successful, and millions of struggling working-class Americans are deservedly failures. I think that's an invalid conclusion and therefore the premise is flawed. I think that the rights granted to us under the Constitution come with a cost, and we should be more willing than we are to pay the price for them. Nobody living in the United States got to where they are solely by themselves. Nobody. To quote the loser of this year's election, "it takes a village."
