Trumpcare Bites It

Wow, the Trumpcare bill failed. Really, wow. I was putting a brave face on it but now I have discovered that it failed, I’m almost crying. I will probably even have an uncharacteristic alcoholic beverage to celebrate.

    Can we put to rest the following myths?

    a) That businessmen can be good politicians and ‘get things’ done’? Hell, half of the time they aren’t even good at business!

    b) Pual Ryan is a serious policy wonk. lol.

    Among other things, this will embolden moderate republicans even more. He demanded a vote and dared them to vote no on it, and like a coward pulled the bill.

    Matt, feel free to tell us how Trump is playing 12D chess here. Remember, this is the honeymoon period of this midget. lol.

    Sorry for being a downer, but I do expect administrative sabotage of Obamacare to start anytime now. These are some immoral motherfuckers we’re dealing with.

  3. I am worried by the reports that some Republicans didn’t support it because the cuts weren’t draconian enough…


  4. The “Freedom Caucus” stands for “freedom from taxes for the rich.” The final vote would have been a disaster, since Ryan was bending over so far for the ultra-conservatives that he chased away the moderates. When a guy like Rodney Frelinghuysen abandons the bill (old NJ money, dating back to when the Dutch owned NYC), the GOP has a problem. After all, as Chair of Ways and Means, he is one of those who define what the “party line” is in the House. He came out in opposition on Friday morning, and that’s when Trump’s world really collapsed.

    An intensive investigation spanning multiple countries culminated on Thursday in the arrest of the 18-year-old suspect, who holds dual Israeli and American citizenship, and his father. The teenager’s lawyer said he had a brain tumor that could affect his behavior.

    Not a great idea to evoke everyone’s daddy issues. “You can’t tell me what to do, dad! I’m an adult!”
