dear Brit Hume --Donald Trump is right... and why

"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel appointed!"

That's because Obama could spell "counsel." !!!

Trump has 3 days left this week...(before golfing)

Will he top himself with another scandal and in which area --

1. more Treason?
2. Sex?
3. Naked greed, nepotism and self-dealing?

I'm betting he does - and we haven't heard about Russian prostitutes in a long time, could be a nice change of pace from Treason and naked self-dealing?

Paul Krugman weighs in on Trumpcare...


This is an act of deliberate betrayal: Everything about Trumpcare is specifically designed to do exactly the opposite of what Trump, Paul Ryan and other Republicans said it would.

I don't usually like joe Manchin but...

this quote is great:

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin said Thursday at a POLITICO Playbook event that 172,000 people in his deep-red state got insurance for the first time under Obamacare.

“They don’t know how they got it, they don’t know who gave it to them,” he said he told Trump, before warning, “They’re going to know who took it away from them.”

Should there be a test given candidates running for President?

Perhaps given before the first debate they participate in on TV?

Like the GRE or SATs?

Unfortunately, I'd imagine even Bush could have passed one.

But TRUMP? No way! I think it would have saved us!!!

Or get them in a tournament with Alex Trebek -- Would love to see Trump on Jeopardy! "American History for $20, Alex" "Sorry, Donald, the war between the states was North vs. South, not East vs. SOUTHWEST."

Golden Boy has lost his luster...

Remember when Paul Ryan "wonderboy" was an up & coming "thing" - at least according to Corporate Media?

Now: 47.6 % UNFAVORABLE just 33.6 % favorable

Even Trump is beating him!

Pence claims having cancer is good for you...?

Republicans would have states set up "high-risk pools" for those with pre-existing conditions. There is no Congressional Budget Office score of the proposal yet, but the AARP has projected that premiums in high-risk pools could cost as much as $25,700 per year.
.
In an interview on "Meet the Press," Vice President Mike Pence also vowed that the Trump administration is "keeping our promises to protect people who have pre-existing conditions."

Pence explained how states could change coverage for those with pre-existing conditions.
"You take people that have pre-existing and costly conditions and put them into a high-risk pool," Pence said to NBC's Chuck Todd. "And you subsidize that so that it is affordable to those individuals.

So... $27,000 x 12 mox = $324,000

Meaning having cancer will raise your income to well over $324,000 so the insurance will be AFFORDABLE!!!
***
So this is what's behind the attack on the EPA - more cancer is good for the ECONOMY?!
