Report: Paul Ryan’s Plan Could Force 15 Million to Lose Health Coverage

BreitBart.com 11 Mar 2017 Analysis from the Brookings Institution says that 15 million people could lose coverage under Speaker Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has yet to score the Ryan plan, although the Brookings Institution’s report does not bode well for the House leadership’s bill. The Ryan plan reports, “We conclude that CBO’s analysis will likely estimate that at least 15 million people will lose coverage under the American Health Care Act (AHCA) by the end of the ten-year scoring window. Estimates could be…

Disentangling Obamacare pits Republicans against Republicans

WASHINGTON— Putting President Trump at the center of a fierce intraparty clash, conservative members of Congress and House GOP leaders are waging a standoff over the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Republicans have vowed to dismantle Obamacare since it passed with only Democrat votes in 2010, but reaching agreement on what should come next since gaining full control of Congress and the White House has proven difficult. After seven years of struggling to write a replacement bill, House Republican leaders released the AHCA on Monday. The House Ways and Means…

BREAKING : Nancy Pelosi DEMANDS to Know What’s IN THE HEALTHCARE LAW Before It Passes – TruthFeed

In one of the most shameless hypocritical statements to date, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Speaker Ryan demanding to know what is in the American Health Care Act before it passes the House . Unreal. You’ll recall, Pelosi is infamous for saying, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it,” regarding the Obamacare. Watch the video: From Breitbart House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif) sent a letter Tuesday to Speaker Paul Ryan (R.-Wis.) demanding to know the contents…

Some Trump Boasts Stumble, But Jobs Do Grow

Some of Donald Trump’s boasts from the first weeks of his presidency were dashed by developments in recent days. For example, builders of the Keystone XL pipeline were let off the hook from a buy-American requirement that Trump had promised. On another front, though, there’s now some substance behind his cherry-picking claims that jobs are growing under his watch. A robust jobs report gave him a fresh load of cherries. Over the past week, Trump took credit when it was not always due and assigned blame that was misplaced. Two…

Trump’s War on the Truth Tellers – Robert Reich

Found here . My comments in bold. More textbook misdirection from Dr. Reich. By his title it is clear he presumes the veracity of the media and government agencies like the CBO. But he never defends their accuracy or objectivity, he defends their credibility. He pretends he’s outraged by Trump’s supposed lies, but never contests them, he only diverts to something else. Trump is right, these institutions are a joke, and everyone knows it. Unfortunately for Dr. Reich, those institutions are doing just fine undermining their own credibility. Hardly anyone…

President Trump mustn’t let haste make waste

THE BOTTOM LINE It seems Trump cares more about being able to claim he kept his word than he does about solving the serious problems that provoked those promises, and that led voters to elect him. Opinion: 5 myths about historically black colleges Halfway through his first 100 days in office, President Donald Trump has checked some boxes on his list of promises, but often in a haphazard fashion. At times, it seems Trump cares more about being able to claim he kept his word than about solving the problems…

Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad CBO?

This is a good piece. The points it makes are important, especially in your ending paragraph. We do need the CBO. We do need some kind of objective measurement of a bill. At the same time, as you note, we need to focus more on the intended consequences of a bill, and ensure they’re added to the mix. We also need to get rid of the Tea Party in Congress. They’re the ones who are obsessed about dollars and cents, to the point of stagnation.

The Ethics of the New GOP Health Plan – Violating Justice & Solidarity

The Ethics of the New GOP Health Plan – Violating Justice & Solidarity by Craig Klugman, Ph.D. Whatever one may think of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it began with noble intentions. The ACA was built on a philosophy of providing more people not only with access to health insurance but also with assistance to pay for it. The goal was not to derive a right to health care for all Americans, but rather to provide a level playing field for all people to purchase health insurance. Toward that aim,…

Thanks Eags, For Teaching Us That Il Douche’s Thomas Cromwell Is Steven K. Bannon

Take an anti-nausea pill before reading Eags’ takedown of Steven K. Bannon, currently serving as assistant to the President and White House chief strategist, in the Trump administration. Before the was such a thing as Prime Minister in English government, Thomas Cromweell was the equivalent of a PM during the reign of Henry VIII. Eags draws interesting parallels between Henry VIII/Cromwell and Il Douche /Bannon: Henry VIII married 6 times and there have been 6 marriages for Il Douche/Bannon combined. The parallel that was most attractive to this blogger: Henry…
