Why Trump wants a quick "repeal and replace" for the ACA...

He has a TV mind. A short attention span - just like his voting public.

First, even Trump knows any GOP plan is going to suck in real-life terms.

And, sure, some of his stupid Red state white voters will get hurt and scream.

But the GOP has gerrymandered safe districts for the Senate and House so 2018 is not going to be a problem even with lots of bad publicity.

So what concerns Trump is TRUMP.

2020

And he knows that the US public, as well as CNN, MSNBC and the lot of them have short attention spans JUST LIKE HE DOES!

And THEY WILL FORGET ALL ABOUT IT by the time 2020 comes around.

Much better than having it hanging over him for the 2020 elections.

And sad to say he's right.

Post your Trump term movie mashup...

(Tv shows, songs, plays, books, movies ,etc.) = a mashup that best characterizes how you see the next 4 years playing out...

My take: MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER meets DR. STRANGELOVE

GOP to announce sweeping plans to ensure Voting Rights...

Soon to be Attorney General Jeff BEAUREGUARD Sessions (sometimes termed the 3rd, other times termed the somewhat limited) hinted at plans to ensure minority rights.

First would be a total privatization of highways allowing toll roads to be sold to "investors" thus limited inessential travel, especially for minorities, thus saving them essential dollars for drugs and alcohol according to Trump advisor Rudy Giuliani. Certain whites in areas like Appalachia would be given vouchers to use for local meth consumption. Joe Manchin enthusiastically added bi-partisan support for the measure.

Then under a new GOP-led federal aide program headed by new Secretary of Labor Andrew Pudzer, minority voters would be educated at mass educational centers in primarily Red Southern states, whimsically to be called "Plantations."

Upon graduation after a short 20 year program as servers in Hardee's and Car'ls Jr.s, they would be guaranteed the right to vote at 3/5 of any Caucasian ballot, even Mr. Trumps! (speculation abounds regarding Pudzer's nickname "Pud," seeing how others have mentioned it was a prime factor in his selection by Mr. Trump.)

unconfirmed rumor "Tex" Hall to be Trump's Bureeau of Indian Affairs head...

Republicans rumored to cite his expertise in Ethics handling as prime qualification (his environmental concerns a close second for their praise):

Fans of George Lakoff, David Cay Johnston, Robert Reich and Mark Blyth...

Having witnessed Trump and company slice through the Republican contenders with pithy shorthand phrases like:

Lyin' Ted Cruz
and
Little Marco

and seeing him effectively do the same with Hilary:

"Crooked Hilary"

I think it's important to give a moniker for the Evil that's coalescing now in Washington. Something that will STICK with them like superglue and remind voters every time their slime makes the news.

I propose THE THREE LITTLE PIGS -- Ryan, Trump and McConnell.

Stick this on them and make American think of it with every job loss, every inane expenditure (The WALL, The cost of ACA repeal, etc.)

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS - If I could figure how to include a photo I'd put those three in black SS uniforms with armbands - McConnell is a ringer for Himmler, TRump's funky hair equals Adolf's and Ryan is a skinny slime like Goebbels. But American know from nothing as this person proves:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/05/health/obamacare-florida-republican/index.html

If life were a Roadrunner cartoon I'd like to shove a thousand knives in this guy's head - but they'd hit nothing but AIR~!!!

This guy just may be the stupidest person in America. The problem is he has lots of relatives - enough to elect Trump. But even the ACA can't cure stupid. But if we hit the evil trio with a nickname crafted to disclose their 1% policies for the super rich, maybe, just maybe enough cartoon-watching Americans will remember at election time.
