Paul Krugman Has a Very Good Point on Trumpcare....

Paul Krugman
It is so bad that the Keynesian hack, amidst lefty propaganda, actually uses some truth to attack it. He writes:
Given the rhetoric Republicans have used over the past seven years to attack health reform, you might have expected them to do away with the whole structure of the Affordable Care Act — deregulate, de-subsidize and let the magic of the free market do its thing....But Republican leaders weren’t willing to bite that bullet. What they came up with instead was a dog’s breakfast that conservatives are, with some justice, calling Obamacare 2.0....
Given the sick joke of a health plan, you might ask what happened to all those proclamations that Obamacare was a terrible, no good system that Republicans would immediately replace with something far better — not to mention Donald Trump’s promises of “insurance for everybody” and “great health care.”
But the answer, of course, is that they were all lying, all along — and they still are. On this, at least, Republican unity remains impressively intact.

And I agree with this:
 Trumpcare — the White House insists that we not call it that, which means that we must...
Trumpcare may be more Tiffany Trump than Ivanka, but it is still Trump's (perhaps adopted) baby:

Donnie is behind this Mussolini-like healthcare plan 100%.



  1. (((Krugman))) only speaks the truth when his party is out of power. What a coincidence.

  2. Krugman aside: "Trumpcare" sucks. ALL gummint controlled healthcare sucks.
    Stop using the term "healthcare" for health INSURANCE. Healthcare is something you buy with cash like cornflakes. It can be and should be CHEAP. Health insurance is something you buy against that catastrophic situation. Also cheap. This is not rocket science, kids.
    The whole "pre-existing" condition thing is a side show. If it needs to be addressed, it can be addressed as a totally separate issue.

  3. What else do you expect from the Party of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt? Looking for the positive, maybe screwing around with this might take the eye off the ball of more regime change ...
