Despite dogged attempts by Donald Trump and the GOP to throw salt on Obamacare, early data shows that Americans are signing up for it in record numbers.
In what looks like sabotage to anyone with eyes, President Donald Trump, who could not repeal (or replace) “Obamacare” through his lame-dick Republican-led Congress, has taken it upon himself to just fuck with all aspects of the program, effectively making it “dead” through his asinine actions.
We know that “the truth” is a relative concept in the Trump White House, so no one was surprised when President von FuckFace (kudos, Stephen A. Crockett Jr.) declared that Obamacare was “finished,” “dead” and “gone” Monday.
Donald Trump, saddled with a Congress that couldn’t repeal Obamacare, finally took matters into his own tiny hands yesterday. Unable to toss out the Affordable Care Act outright, Trump has instead opted to sabotage it.
The president of undoing former President Barack Obama’s legacy is back on his bullshit, signing an executive order Thursday to undo portions of Obamacare because he and his lame crew can’t present a decent health care plan that makes sense.
In theory, a cable news network holding debates between members of different parties arguing over the merits of their respective policies seems like a novel idea. However, because we largely consume for-profit media, these debates often prove to be more about spectacle than anything substantive.
Republicans are trying to repeal Obamacare again. At this point, the efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act have passed the point of political failure and have become embarrassing. Republicans are like the creepy guy who keeps shooting his shot even though he keeps getting curved. The Republican Party…
One of the biggest losses in the Trump era hasn’t just been common decency, civil discourse or some semblance of global respect. We all knew those Ls were coming when Donald Trump won the Republican presidential nomination.
No one ever taught me about Emmett Till. When I was 11 years old, I was sitting in a room filled with black men at my uncle’s New Jersey apartment. As they joked around with one another in the bawdy way men are apt to do when they’re by themselves, a traditionally attractive white woman popped up on the television…
Early Friday morning, the seven-year effort by Republicans to repeal Obamacare came to a thundering end—at least for now—when Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) came through and dropped that no vote down like:
As Senate Republicans huddle in a Capitol-building closet and deliberate on how to strip people of their health care coverage through a dangerous mix of alchemy, conservative math, obfuscation and outright lies, let us remember the important part of the story of the GOP’s efforts to snatch Obamacare from millions of…
Senate Republicans have delayed their plans to vote on their newest Trumpcare bill because they now realize what many knew when GOP leaders locked themselves into a room to craft this deadweight anchor of a bill: It’s trash.
This vomit-inducing Senate revision of President Donald Trump’s initial trashy health care bill was doomed from the time Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thought it was a good idea to have an all-male GOP lineup working behind closed doors in secret to create it.
If the Trump administration has its way, religious employers will be allowed to deny their female employees contraceptive insurance coverage. Currently, under Obamacare, birth control is deemed an essential preventive health service that is fully covered.
Thursday morning, while we were all preparing to lose our health insurance, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) stood on the House floor and gave the kind of speech that would have you nodding your head and saying “Amen” if you were in church. When she was done, Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) called her “hysterical.”
House Democrats taunted their Republican counterparts as GOP representatives passed a bill that would erase the signature legislation of the Obama administration and replace it with a tax break for the wealthiest Americans and simultaneously karate-chop 24 million Americans in their soon-to-be uninsured throats.
House Republicans introduced a health care amendment Tuesday night that would allow individual states to opt out of Obamacare’s provision prohibiting insurers from charging higher rates for those with pre-existing conditions, with one catch: Members of Congress and their staff would be exempt from the higher premiums.
Looks like those “California girls” (in this case elected officials) continue to tell it like it t-i-s.
Brutal. Shameful. Embarrassing. America hasn’t seen a politician take an L this bad since Papa Pope read Fitz. In case you missed the sound of a million souls crying out in joy, then suddenly drowned out by loud laughter, the Republicans’ ill-fated attempt to scrap and replace Obamacare flopped miserably today.
White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney has been working tirelessly to push this bullshit Republican health care bill through the House.
