was the ACA "doughnut hole" specifically calculated to...

Energize lower-class racial strife in red states?

Just wondering.

Recently encountered red state man making $7k/year faced with paying over $400/mo for insurance, no subsidy, no version of medical in his state; might even have been black himself - totally against Obama and "Obamacare."

Got me thinking. Was this DELIBERATELY done? Not just to thwart democrats but because of some long-term plan hatched in Kotch-like Republican think-tank?

suggested required viewing...

No more Corey Bookers voting against Seniors and people hurting for Rx drugs
No more Feinsteins voting for Sessions and that crowd
No more Trump sympathziers.
No more ACA surrenderers.
No more pragmatic appeasers.
No more considering Social Security and Medicare cuts as a "Grand Bargain."
No more 1% BULLSH*T and fellow-travelers on the Democratic side.

Or do we need a new party? Maybe that's the reality.

Please watch this:

I like this one better:

Sorry for the weird editing - I updated with another video and it repeated the original. This morning I tried to edit and instead it cut the original. So there's some trick to editing your posts here that I don't yet know.

Hearing the Trump team lies is a privilege...

not a right - so sayeth the Queen of Evil:

The administration may “rethink [its] relationship with the press” if the media continues to criticize Spicer, Conway threatened.

Should we embrace a coming economic collapse?

Because it's almost a given we're overdue for one of those periodic capital market corrections like 2009. Even Trump's minions are worried about this.

And since in the last one --
No one from Wall Street went to jail
The Republicans launched the Tea Party to capitalize on it and put the blame on Obama when it was Bush and his ilk's fault
The Republicans are still attacking even the weak responses like Dodd-Frank with a goal to eradicate them...

what happens when THE FIRE NEXT TIME hits? (just saw an ad for the Baldwin film opening in Feb)

will it be 1932 again?
will there be an FDR emerging?

will the Tea Party protesters finally see the wolves in sheep's clothing? Will they go along with another bailout?
Will Dem's cave enough to give them bi-partisan cover or will they have b*lls enough to make the Republicans own it?

or will things turn even darker like Germany in 1933?

How many of you will wake up...

Every day during the next 4 years with the awful thought lurking..."Is this the day he pushes the button?"

Life imitates Art...

Now it begins!

2017 - going to be like Watergate on Steroids...

Looks like the press is finally waking up now that the cast of villains is assembling.

"Chaffetz Skipped Meeting With Ethics Chief He Threatened To Subpoena, Emails Show" -- huff post (Hoist by their own Emails!)

The Daily Show will be about The Daily Lies

The Russian Mafia and their Amerikanski friends

It's like an all-star team of daily scandal makers. 1972 rerun only bigger. Sure it might get familiar after a while but the sheer number of villains and their amazing audacity ensures at least ONE big scandal soon to come. And among the craven bunch at CNN, MSNBC and the like, at least one journalist is surely going to seek to make it big by exposing them.

Grab your popcorn!
