In Rare Unity, Hospitals, Doctors and Insurers Criticize Health Bill. GOP TAHCA Takes Away One Trillion Dollars From Health Care And Gives It To The Rich!

Republicans and Donald Trump have spent 104 days from January 20, 2017 to May 04, 2017 working around the clock to destroy the lives of Millions of Americans by repealing Obamacare and implementing [TAHCA] “The American Health Care Act,” which takes away One Trillion Dollars from Health Care and give it to Corporations and the Rich. However, we must never forget the 7 years 2010-2016 the GOP Controlled Congress voted 62 times to repeal Obamacare. And yes, it is millions of uninformed, ignorant, mostly uneducated and brainwashed Americans that vote these people into Office and vote to keep them in Office. Amazing isn’t it?

 

[NYT] “It is a rare unifying moment. Hospitals, doctors, health insurers and some consumer groups, with few exceptions, are speaking with one voice and urging significant changes to the Republican health care legislation that passed the House on Thursday.

 

The bill’s impact is wide-ranging, potentially affecting not only the millions who could lose coverage through deep cuts in Medicaid or no longer be able to afford to buy coverage in the state marketplaces. With states allowed to seek waivers from providing certain benefits, employers big and small could scale back what they pay for each year or reimpose lifetime limits on coverage. In particular, small businesses, some of which were strongly opposed to the Affordable Care Act, could be free to drop coverage with no penalty.

 

The prospect of millions of people unable to afford coverage led to an outcry from the health care industry as well as consumer groups. They found an uncommon ally in some insurers, who rely heavily on Medicaid and Medicare as mainstays of their business and hope the Senate will be more receptive to their concerns.

 

“The American Health Care Act needs important improvements to better protect low- and moderate-income families who rely on Medicaid or buy their own coverage,” Marilyn B. Tavenner, the chief executive of America’s Health Insurance Plans, the industry’s trade group, said in a strongly worded statement.” Open NYT For Full Article: https://nyti.ms/2pMnxJc

The Most Powerful Country In The World, America, At A Cost of 653 Billion Dollars Annually For Defense, Is Being Wrecked From The Inside By Donald Trump And Republican Legislators And Nothing Is Being Done About It!

America was always looking for the foreign enemy trying to destroy America and it is amazing when destruction came on November 8, 2016, it wasn’t some foreign invaders, all along it was Treasonous Trump and Republican Traitors that prevailed in the most illegal Election in America that gave them the Presidency; The House of Representatives; The Senate; 32 Republican Governors and control of most of America’s 1,022 Counties.

 

Republicans are not doing one single thing to help America or the American people because, between Donald Trump and the disingenuous Republicans, they are too busy enacting Polices to destroy President Obama’s Legacy and Accomplishments that will hurt America’s most vulnerable and the Republicans really don’t care.

 

For the people that voted for Donald Trump and Republicans in Kentucky, Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin and other States, they are going to be hurt the most and it shouldn’t come as any surprise. Most Republican Voters are stigmatized with the “Stockholm Syndrome,” they are Uninformed, Ignorant, Uneducated and Brainwashed, always voting against their own interest.

 

Perhaps Republican Votes should give heed to Mark Twain that said; “When You Are Dead You Don’t Know You Are Dead, Others Do But You Don’t! The Same Is With Stupidity.”

 

What we do or where we go from here with Republicans in charge of all of the Government, Federally and Most States is anyone’s guess. Perhaps we as a country may withstand the imminent destruction of America or we may not survive; only time will tell.

 

The Corporate Corrupt Owned Media are equally responsible for this disaster. The Media did Donald Trump’s Bidding and Selling of his Lies, Scams, Conning, Racism, Bigotry, Fascism and Treason. Like Republicans, the Media is also Bankrupt of all morality or shame! God Help Us!

America May Have Had An Overdose Of The Charlatan Donald Trump And It Looks Like The Beginning Of The End For The Bankruptcy Swindler, As The 2016 GOP Hopefuls Remain Sociopaths, Blaming President Obama And Hillary Clinton For George W Bush And Dick Cheney’s Recklessness And Criminality

Posted in Politics, Republican Second Debate with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2015 by sheriffali

[NYT] So it went, somewhat tediously and surreally, for many stretches of the debate on Wednesday night and especially for the first half-hour, during which Rand Paul took the precise measure of — and raised the correct question about — the egomaniacal front-runner.

 

“Do we want someone with that kind of character, that kind of careless language, to be negotiating with Putin?” Paul asked.

 

“I think really there’s a sophomoric quality that is entertaining about Mr. Trump, but I am worried,” he added, and I nodded so vigorously at the “worried” part that I’m going to need balm and a neck brace tomorrow.

 

Paul went on to single out Trump’s “visceral response to attack people on their appearance — short, tall, fat, ugly. My goodness, that happened in junior high. Are we not way above that?”

 

No, we aren’t. Or at least Trump isn’t. And “junior high” is too easy on him, too kind. Trump comes from, and belongs in, the sandbox, as he demonstrated the second that Paul paused and Trump fired back: “I never attacked him on his look, and believe me, there’s plenty of subject matter right there.”

 

How lovely. And how adult! And less than an hour later, Fiorina had to stand there and try not to squirm as she was asked to react to Trump’s recent comments about her in a Rolling Stone interview: “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that?”

 

Fiorina held her head, including her face, high. “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said,” she stated tightly, and with more dignity than Trump or the situation deserved.

Trump rushed in: “I think she’s got a beautiful face and I think she’s a beautiful woman.” Watch out, Carly. Next comes an invitation for a private ride in his Trump-i-copter.

 

I mentioned my nodding, but my real injuries came from shaking my head, over and over, because I couldn’t quite believe the Trump-centric nature of it all. I’m still mystified that he’s done this well in the polls for this long.

 

I know that Americans have lost faith in institutions — understandably. I know that Americans are turned off by politics as usual — justly.

 

But have we sunk to a point where we’re prepared to reach for someone so careless with his insinuations, so merrily and irresponsibly ignorant, that he used some of his precious time on Wednesday night to fan irrational, repudiated fears about a link between vaccines and autism?

 

Are we buoyed by a bully who calls anyone who disagrees with him a “loser,” promises vaguely that his presidency will be “unbelievable” (his favorite adjective, and an unintentionally telling one), and presents little besides his tumescent ego and stagey rage?

 

The CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who was the debate’s moderator, pressed hard to get Trump to say, with even a scintilla of specificity, why he believes that he’d be more effective in dealing with Vladimir Putin than Obama has been.

 

And all that Trump could muster was: “I would get along with him.”

 

How? Why? Not a single detail. But Trump doesn’t do details. He just crows that he will know the most, be the best and win. He’s a broken record of grandiose, self-infatuated music.

 

The most satisfying, encouraging moments of the debate were those when other candidates tried to point that out directly or indirectly. Chris Christie did so several times. During his opening remarks, he asked the camera to move from him to the audience, saying that the election isn’t really about the candidates, who soak up the spotlight, but the people, who deal with the consequences.

Clint Eastwood The Stunt You Pulled During the GOP 2012 Convention Had A Major Flaw; “The Empty Chair Really Represents The Do Nothing Republicans.”

These Chicken Hawks Want To Spend The Money On Senseless Wars But Are Hell Bent On Cutting Social Services For Students The Poor And The Needy.

 

Hey Clint, what type of country do you envision? One where the Rich get Richer and the Poor die of lack of Food and Medical Services! Any country that fails to take care of the vulnerable in their Society has no business criticizing anyone about Human Rights, Freedom and Democracy. We know you are a good Actor, Director and Producer, but, it seems self evident that your thoughts are no different than the Repugnant Republican Reprobates.

 

We are most certain that you are cognizant of the fact that President Obama has pulled us out of the deep and unforgiving waters that George W Bush, Dick Cheney and the Republicans threw us into.

 

However, you may disagree with my personal opinion, but you of all people should apologize to President Obama for your phantasmagoric rationales and internecine Empty Chair Metaphor!

I am not suggesting this because Mr. Obama is looking for an apology, but by you taking this Giant Step may cause the Republicans pause as to the sanity of the GOP Party.

President Obama – Man On Fire – Not Having To Carry Whining Democrats On His Back; Republicans And Benjamin Netanyahu Have Met Their Match!

Meet Drama Obama Because Mr. Cool Has Left The Building!

 

Obama is gambling that he won’t hurt his party and that in 10 years Iran will be a better member of the international community. But he can’t do worse as an oracle of the Middle East than the conservative warmongers who ravaged the region.

 

 

[Maureen Dowd NYT] Washington — IN the midst of Iran mania, the president got tossed a question about Bill Cosby.

 

Would he revoke the Medal of Freedom given to a comedian who has been accused of subverting the free will of dozens of women, and counting?

 

It was a riveting moment.

 

It has been said that Cliff Huxtable was instrumental in paving the way for Barack Obama.

 

Until the nation began watching the sterling Obamas, the sterling Huxtables were the most celebrated positive image of a wholesome, engaging, upper-middle-class black family.

 

The president may have flashed back to another White House news conference in 2009 when he forthrightly — and correctly — accused the police of acting “stupidly” in arresting his friend Skip Gates on a suspicion of breaking into his own Cambridge, Mass., home. The backlash from the police led to Obama suffering through the inane “beer summit.”

 

So when April Ryan of the American Urban Radio Networks asked about Cosby, President Obama’s lawyerly side kicked in at first. He punted, saying he did not comment on cases that could be litigated.

 

Then he looked down, pressed his lips together and unleashed a well deserved hell on Cosby. Because in the sunset of his presidency, Obama’s bolder side is rising. He’s a lame duck who doesn’t give a damn.

 

“If you give a woman — or a man, for that matter — without his or her knowledge, a drug, and then have sex with that person without consent, that’s rape,” he said.

 

The father of two daughters reflected genuine disgust.

 

With Cosby, the Charleston, S.C., eulogy with the rendition of “Amazing Grace” and the visit with felons in federal prison in Oklahoma to speak up for that unloved constituency, and say “There but for the grace of God,” the president who once tread gingerly on race has discovered a more gingery voice.

 

And the chorus in the land finally proclaims: “That’s the man I voted for.”

 

Daniel Patrick Moynihan used to tell colleagues that one is only president from the inauguration to the first midterm. But President Obama is rewriting the book on Oval Office juice.

 

He has talked wistfully in private for years about “going Bulworth” and emulating Warren Beatty’s hilariously blunt senator in that movie. Now he’s doing it.

 

“This is the guy I know,” David Axelrod told me. “He’s focused on big things, speaking hard truths and damning small politics, and that is why so many of us were attracted to him from the start.”

 

When CBS’s Major Garrett grandstanded in the White House press conference, asking the president why he was content “to leave the conscience of this nation, the strength of this nation, unaccounted for in relation” to the Americans stuck in prison in Iran, Obama gave Garrett the back of his hand.

 

“Major,” he shot back, “that’s nonsense, and you should know better.”

 

Time to dismiss the Anger Translator.

 

The president is far more energized than a couple years ago, when — thwarted by intransigent Republicans and the intractable Middle East — he acted as though he would like to quit, if it was a job you could stride away from.

 

He clearly enjoys settling into his favorite role — the man alone in the arena, disdaining the flattering rituals and back-scratching of politics, the dread drinks with Senator McConnell and stupid golf with Speaker Boehner.

 “Eight months ago, he was left for dead after the midterm elections,” Axelrod said. “But he saw it as a liberating moment, the starting buzzer on the final quarter. And he is working down his list of things undone and knocking them out one after another. For those of us who were there from the start, it’s thrilling to see.”

 

Aside from Mitch McConnell, the happiest person last November when McConnell won was Obama because he was freed from having to humor Harry Reid and Hill Democrats.

 

He passed the trade bill with help from Republicans who spent years trying to hurt him and he is now teaming with the Koch brothers, who have spent a fortune trying to kill his agenda, for a criminal justice overhaul.

 

He brushed away the contentious politics on Cuba, the Confederate flag and Iran and said it was long past time to move on.

 

A few years ago, he privately fretted that he was no longer lucky. But he got lucky with the Supreme Court on health care and gay marriage.

 

He wrote in his memoir that from the time he was young, he learned the trick of not seeming angry so he wouldn’t alarm white folks.

 

But now he seems eager to mix it up as he goes through his rhymes-with-bucket list. As Glenn Thrush put it in his “Meet ‘Drama’ Obama” piece in Politico, “Mr. Cool has left the building.”

 

Obama has always radiated the smug air that he was right and any other positions were illogical. But it is gratifying when aimed at the obnoxious Republicans and more obnoxious Bibi.

 

Republicans were never going to go for the Iran deal. Their apocalyptic statements were written well in advance and they just had to hit “Send” followed by a fund-raising appeal to Jewish donors.

Obama Gains Vindication and Secures Legacy With Health Care Ruling – A Victory For The American People

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2015 by sheriffali

The Republicans that are running on empty and not doing anything to help America or the American people, they again came out in full force, “we must repeal Obamacare.”

 

John Boehner and Mitch McConnell lead the charge against Chief Justice Roberts and continue lying about how bad the Affordable Care Act is for America.

 

It is stunning to witness the stupidity of some Americans when asked if they like the Affordable Care Act, they say that it is great; then when asked if they like Obamacare, they fraught with disdain.

 

These are the people that make up the Republican Voters and yes, Republican Politicians continue to prey on the vulnerable, uninformed, ignorant and brainwashed base.[Sheriff Ali]

 

[NYT] WASHINGTON — For years, President Obama has faced the sneers of political adversaries who called his health care law Obamacare and assailed his effort to build a legacy that has been the aspiration of every Democratic president since Harry S. Truman.

 

But on Thursday, Mr. Obama walked into the Rose Garden to accept vindication as the Supreme Court, for a second time, affirmed the legality of a part of the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama said the law “is working exactly as it’s supposed to” and called for an end to the vitriolic politics that have threatened it. 

“The point is, this is not an abstract thing anymore,” Mr. Obama told reporters, with Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. smiling broadly beside him. “This is not a set of political talking points. For all the misinformation campaigns, all the doomsday predictions, all the talk of death panels and job destruction, for all the repeal attempts — this law is now helping tens of millions of Americans.”

 

Mr. Obama’s plea to stop “refighting battles that have been settled again and again and again” met on Thursday with immediate resistance. House Speaker John A. Boehner, Republican of Ohio, promised to “do everything we can” to undermine the law. Jeb Bush, a Republican candidate for president, vowed “to repeal and replace this flawed law” if he succeeds Mr. Obama in the Oval Office.

 

 

Mr. Boehner said he will continue to move forward with a lawsuit against the president that argues that Mr. Obama overstepped his legal authority in carrying out the health care act, although the case is in its early stages at the district court level and could take years to come before the Supreme Court. Other Republicans mused on Thursday about using parliamentary maneuvers to chip away at the law.

 

But for Mr. Obama, the ruling was a personal affirmation of the wisdom of engaging in a costly political fight that began almost as soon as he took office. The court’s ruling, Mr. Obama said Thursday, cements the Affordable Care Act in American history as the logical extension of Social Security and Medicare.

 

“This generation of Americans chose to finish the job,” Mr. Obama said, reading from one of two sets of remarks — one written as if the Supreme Court upheld the subsidies and another as if the court did not. Cody Keenan, Mr. Obama’s chief speechwriter, had prepared both sets before the court announced its decision.

 

Once the decision was announced, and just before walking into the Rose Garden, Mr. Obama signed the set of remarks for Mr. Keenan that were written as if the court had ruled against the administration. “Didn’t need this one, brother!” Mr. Obama scrawled across the bottom.
