GUEST POST

Bribing our way to Trumpcare

by daedal2207
The disgraceful act under consideration by the Republican senators(the Democrats cannot propose any legislation) has never been openly promulgated,has no CGO analysis,eliminates medicaid,takes money from states that complied with law and hands it to states that did not,ultimately makes preexisting conditions uninsurable,provides for the destruction of medicare,is opposed by almost all the health care associations from AMA,RNA,APA,APHA,...on and on,
almost all of the health care ADMINISTRATORS,{CIGNA,UNITED HEALTH,HUMANA...on and on, almost all of the universities associated with medical education and research,Yale,Columbia,Harvard,Princeton,Stanford,UCLA,Rutgers,Northeastern,U.of Cincinatti,on and on.
The basic reason is that this proposed legislation has nothing to do with health but is a transparent way of using the health care budget(1/5 of the national budget) to effect tax reform in favor of a promised,wealthy few.

A SOLUTION TO THE OBAMACARE PROBLEM

Reports have it that, in order to win the vote of Senator Murkowski, G.O.P. leaders are willing to allow Alaska, the Senator's home state to keep their Obamacare.  This solution could be sheer genius.  If all the Senators had such a deal, Trump could have the victory he has been looking for; a 100 to nothing win, on a bipartisan basis, in addition to uniting a divided society.

GRAVEN IMAGES

Attributing special values to an inanimate object, even a, so-called, symbolic object, is akin to worshipping a graven image, a practice prohibited by the second of the 10 Commandments.

When a tribute to a piece of cloth becomes more important than a man, there is much wrong in any given society.

A WIN-WIN SITUATION FOR THE NATION?

There is a potential win-win situation shaping up in the nation's present health care situation.  Wealthy donors have warned Republican legislators that they will stop donations to them unless Obamacare is eliminated and they get a tax cut, which has stimulated frenzied activity to try to ram a repeal bill through Congress by September 30.

Now if wealthy donors stop paying off Republicans, they will be increasing their disposable income to help offset their taxes; the middle class will not have to worry, as much, about their health care , and Republican legislators will have to go back to honing their legislative skills rather than begging for donations.  A win-win situation for the nation.

HEALTHCARE COVERAGE

If a large segment, of our population, supinely allows the Republicans to take away their healthcare coverage, they will deserve the consequences.  And to you senior citizens out there, if they can take away the healthcare from such a large group, what makes you think they can't take away your Medicare, as well?

WITHIN HIS RIGHTS

To all those liberals who cannot understand the difference between Trump's hundreds of insults, inveighed against his enemies, and the single charge of bigotry levied by a young woman, working for ESPN,  I say : "Look up the meaning of  Lèse-majesté.  

Perhaps the additional knowledge will enable you Liberals to understand why the young woman should be fired while Donald was within his rights.

FIREABLE OFFENSE

To underscore the evolution, in the thinking of Donald Trump, we remind people that Trump, who kept on Michael Flynn, for 18 days after the Department of Justice advised his administration, that he had been compromised by the Russians, and allowed him to sit in on highly classified intelligence briefings during that time. 

One need only look at the risk, to his own administration and reputation, of asking the head of the Federal Bureau of gotInvestigations, to let Flynn go, and his reaction to an employee of ESPN, a sports channel, calling him a bigot.

He has gone from seeking mercy for what may be "high crimes or treason" of Michael Flynn, to demand the firing of  a lowly commentator on a sports station.
