Kaiser Health Tracking Poll – May 2017: The AHCA’s Proposed Changes to Health Care – Medicaid

Kaiser Health Tracking Poll – May 2017: The AHCA’s Proposed Changes to Health Care – Medicaid

KEY FINDINGS: The American Health Care Act (AHCA) includes substantial changes to Medicaid – the program that provides coverage for medical care and long-term care services to low-income people. Overall, six in ten Americans (58 percent) say Medicaid is either “very” or “somewhat” important for them and their family – including a majority of Democrats (64 percent) and independents (57 percent) and nearly half (46 percent) of Republicans.

Points to Ponder

Never Take Advantage of Someone Who Loves You

NeverAvoid Someone Who Needs You

Never Betray The One Who Has Trust In You

Never Forget People That Always Remember You

Never Speak Ill Of a Person Who Is Not Present

The time has passed to take action – But it’s not too late

Don’t waste your time questioning the conscious of a hard core Trump supporter. If you can continue to respect a person who sexually gropes women, lying more than 50% of the time, and obstructing an investigation by Congress, then you have bought into beliefs and practices, outside the mainstream morality and values of our culture. In recent surveys Trump’s approval rating has reached a low of 34% which can be interpreted to mean they still respect his presidency. They also believe he’s doing an excellent job as President although relatively few can name a single accomplishment other than signing executive orders. Most of which are lingering in legal turmoil and future lawsuits that may drag their disposition out for years.

The rest of us has to fight to maintain the American values of non-obstructive voting rights, the freedom of women to choose, and fair none discriminatory practices by government. Even Thomas Jefferson knew the division among party leaders would do harm to the country. Jefferson once said, “The greatest good we can do our country is to heal its party divisions and make them one people. I do not speak of their leaders who are incurable, but of the honest and well-informed body of the people.” (Letter to John Dickinson J. MSS. July 23, 1801). Most of us realize that Republicans place party first and country second. For if you are illegally obstructing people from voting, what does that say of your value for country and the freedoms it was created upon?

So what can the rest of us do? Brand Trump. This is a tactic that worked for him and we should use it to the fullest extent possible. Never just referred to him as Donald Trump – referred to him as Lying Trump, The Liar King, The Groper in Chief, or pick another phrase and consistently use it. Each day or even each week, point out his inconsistencies and lies and share them on social media. Remember, the tea party movement was predicated on a constant message that was rarely truthful. And we must do the same without any hesitation or respite from action. Be “Indivisible,”  impossible to divide or separate.

Insurance 101 For Paul Ryan: The Healthy Are Supposed To Help Pay For The Sick

Paul Ryan is aghast that healthy individuals are paying into an insurance pot that’s used when people are sick. But … that’s exactly the way insurance works.

Twitter positively erupted Thursday to school Mr. Health Insurance on the concept.

Everyone pays into the pot and draws on it when they’re sick. Younger people, who tend to be healthier than older people, pay for health insurance like everyone else. They’ll rely on it when when they need it, probably more when they’re older and there are younger, healthier people filing in behind them. It’s the same with car insurance. Some people pay for decades and never get into an accident and never collect on their coverage (though the likelihood of anyone never using health insurance is unlikely).

The Trump Circus | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

 

Bill Maher, HBO host of Real Time, on Friday called Russia’s influence in the 2016 election “the worst political scandal in American history.”

“OK. Let’s talk the Russians. I do feel an obligation … to put the facts ahead of the entertainment. I always try to get both in. But I feel like our country is hanging by a thread right now,” the “Real Time” host said on his show.

“Stop looking at the distractions and the clown show, and look at what matters. Which is, I would say, this is the worst political scandal in American history, and it’s not going away.

“The crime is treason. The crime is colluding with Russia to fix an American election!”

Trade Punishment for Trump Voters

Trade Punishment for Trump Voters

President Trump meets with Shinzo Abe on Friday, and one subject is sure to be trade. The Japanese Prime Minister may be too diplomatic to say it, but someone should tell Mr. Trump the damage that his trade policies are already doing to the rural and farm-state voters who put him in the White House.
