Trump Believes That Democrats and Republicans Will Work Together to Craft New Health Care Plan. He’s Also an Idiot

Maybe the Ghost of Christmas Past came to visit President Donald Trump to show him what a xenophobic, racist asshole he’s been since birth. And maybe that miserly, cynical fuck stick has had a change of heart, and by “change of heart” I mean an angioplasty of his senses to open them up to reason and sound thinking.


Now Trump believes, after sneaking language to dismantle Obamacare into his tax-scam bill (the scaling back of single-payer mandates doesn’t disable Obamacare, but let’s not tell him this), that Democrats and Republicans will “come together” to create a new health care plan.

“Based on the fact that the very unfair and unpopular Individual Mandate has been terminated as part of our Tax Cut bill, which essentially Repeals (over time) ObamaCare, the Democrats & Republicans will eventually come together and develop a great new HealthCare plan!” the president wrote on Twitter.

Trump ran on a platform of destroying the first black president’s single biggest accomplishment of creating affordable health care for all by swearing that, if elected, he would eliminate Obamacare his first year in office. After several failed attempts, the president had to resort to sneaking language into his deplorable tax bill to repeal Obamacare’s requirement that people have health insurance or face a fine, Politico reports.

So now Republicans will finally allow Democrats to sit in on the health-care-plan creation process, but who knows if this will actually net anything workable? But it’s Christmastime, so I’m trying to be optimistic.

The GOP and Dems already came together on a health plan, the ACA. Created by a GOP governor, adopted by the Dems, fought against by the GOP, even though it was originally a GOP plan, sabotaged by the GOP at every opportunity after it passed and after 53 tries, was never repealed nor found un-Constitutional by the Supreme Court.

The GOP already have a plan they prefer: death to poor people. You know, those death panels they warned us about. It’s their wet dream.
