“How am I doing? Am I doing OK? I’m president. Hey, I’m president.” – Donald Trump in the Rose Garden after the health care vote

Finally, Donald Trump got a win! That’s right Mr. and Mrs. Deplorable your President finally fulfilled a campaign promise in Congress yesterday, he repealed and replaced (cue the sinister music) OBAMACARE! Then he took his new friends, the Republican congress men and women that represent you Mr. and Mrs. Deplorable to the Rose Garden so they could all high-five, sing Kumbaya, and have their picture taken which will become a 5 x 7 they put in cheap frame from Walgreen’s and place prominently on their desks at the capital and at their home. They will probably send one to their mothers too.

So what did you get Mr. and Mrs. Deplorable? What is so great about Trumpcare? What will Trumpcare do that (cue the sinister music) OBAMACARE couldn’t? Here is something fun you can do, call your Republican Congressman or Congresswoman and ask them that question. Better yet, start with these questions, “Congressman ______________, did you read the Trumpcare bill before you voted for it?” The next thing you need to ask them, “Congresswoman ______________, what was the CBO score of the Trumpcare bill you just voted for?” 

Let’s be very clear, Obamacare wasn’t perfect but it filled a very important hole in the marketplace. And rather than fix the broken parts your President convinced you, Mr. and Mrs. Deplorable, that it was a flawed planned because of one reason and one reason only, the name, (cue the sinister music) OBAMACARE!

So who will Trumcare benefit the most?

  1. High-income earners
  2. Upper-middle-class people without pre-existing health conditions
  3. Young, middle-class people without pre-existing health conditions
  4. People who wish to go without insurance
  5. People who want less comprehensive health coverage
  6. Large employers

Where do you fit into this list Mr. and Mrs. Deplorable? Will you remember how your representative voted when they are running for reelection in 2018? You will if you have a pre-existing health condition or are on Medicaid or Medicare.

Let’s hope the Senate can stop this reckless bill. I am not happy with the President you elected Mr. and Mrs. Deplorable but I don’t want you to pay for your boneheaded vote with your health either.

  1. Well, just because you haven’t read it, doesn’t mean you can’t VOTE on it, right? 😒

  2. Know what’s a more disgusting sight than Trump grabbing….er, his next beer? Trump gloating on national TV in front of all the “fake news” cameras.

    Hey … I’m President. Got it? No? Let me repeat it for you … I’m PRESIDENT. You know, the guy who is self-charged with getting rid of every shred of evidence the ex-leader of this country ever put forth … no matter who it hurts.
    Oh, and by the way, just in case it slipped your mind … I’m President! And believe me, I was elected by the popular vote, to be President no matter who says differently!

  4. My friend, we are at war. People like you and I versus the guys you described standing behind the POTUS. 2018 and 2020 will show us what America truly represents. If this course doesn’t reverse in upcoming elections then sadly we are faced with an increasingly ugly, populist voice of a “new America”. All the nations of the western world are facing the same scenario. Look at France’s election. Thanks for your voice.

    Well at least we know that you are “with her” when you think of the people who supported Donald Trump. Your post reinforced my decision of the America I want to get back. Thanks for the reminder.
