TrumpCare Shows Trump Cares Not for Most of His Voters

The TrumpCare bill currently being floated is not a healthcare bill at all.  It is a tax cut for the wealthiest of the wealthy being disguised as healthcare reform.  The estimates are that the top 1/10th of 1 percent of taxpayers will see about a $200,000 tax cut.  Those poor souls earning only a mere million a year will see about a $50,000 tax cut.  Meanwhile, those at the bottom and many persons over 50 will see large increases in premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket expense.  And they will get a largely worthless tax credit to help them out.   All those old angry white voters who voted for Trump thinking they were finally going to get some attention from D.C. will be left holding the bag so that Trump’s real constituency (read other wealthy folks like Trump) can get a big-ass tax cut.  Did any of you who voted for Trump really think that it would be otherwise?   Is it possible that you were that stupid?

Red’s absolute favorite part of TrumpCare is the tax break for the big bonuses paid to insurance company executives.  Red can’t imagine why that was put into the bill.  It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with trying to line up insurance industry support for TrumpCare, could it?  Nah!

Red fully supports TrumpCare with its tax cuts for the wealthiest and plan to hammer the poor and working class on health care costs-  because that is what America deserves to get for voting Trump into office.  Don’t come crying to Red when you are paying through the nose.  He has coverage.

Trump’s Broken Promises

In the first of what likely will be a long line of broken promises from the Trump administration, comes news that Mexico will not be paying for the “beautiful wall” after all.  Instead, Trump and his feckless Republican allies will rely on a previous authorization from the W. Bush era which provided for construction of a fence – not a wall.  The GOP will seek to add funding for the fence to an omnibus budget bill to lessen the chance of opposition.

Now as you know, Red fully supports the Trump/GOP agenda under the theory that America voted for these clowns and deserves to get the just desserts of its choice.  Which means that Red fully supports a beautiful wall  (not a fence) paid for by our good amigos in Mexico.  After all, what were the two most prominent items that DJ Trump kept promising over and over at his massive rallies?  It’s seems so long ago, but Red vaguely remembers that Hillary was going to prison and that Mexico was paying for the wall.  Remember “Lock her up!” and “Who’s going to pay for it?”  Guess what saps?  Hillary is going nowhere and you are paying for the wall.
