How can one have a coherent conversation with a party stupid enough to think that Charles “Chuckles” Schumer and Nancy “Miss Botox” Pelosi are their two best congressmen?
The ‘rats are making a comparison between the [Un]Affordable Care Act, a/k/a Obamacare, and the just approved tax cuts. In both cases the bills passed with nary a vote from the party in opposition, and with the ‘rats making wild speculative statements. In the case of Obamacare, the bill cost the ‘rats control of both houses of Congress. The ‘rats are looking to return the favor.
The problem for the ‘rats was that everything they said about Obamacare was a lie. You could not keep your doctor or your insurance plan. Obamacare make healthcare more expensive and more restrictive. In contrast, the tax cuts will put more money in the pockets of taxpayers. Take that to the polls in ‘Eighteen.
The Trump tax cuts have cause the ‘rats to lose their mind. One such example, John Cassidy, New Yorker :
As the night progressed, it was clear that the criticisms of the bill had rattled some Republican senators. Not content to quibble over the implications for individual family budgets, some of them resorted to outright fantasizing. “First, this is not a health-care bill,” Tim Scott, of South Carolina, declared. Further, Scott went on, “No one loses their insurance.” This was nonsense. The bill that Scott was voting for abolishes the individual mandate to purchase health insurance, a central element of the Affordable Care Act. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the mandate’s elimination will result in thirteen million fewer Americans being insured over ten years.
So on what planet, does eliminating the state mandate to purchase a lousy product, to wit Obamacare, constitute a taxpayer losing? It is as if the state ordered Mr. Cassidy to feed his family steak twice a week, and then withdrew the order. Would Mr. Cassidy then complain the government was taking food from the mouths of his family? Film at Eleven.
