Trump sabotaging Obamacare by shutting off the enrollment website for 12 hours every Sunday of the enrollment season

12 hours of scheduled maintenance weekly though? I'm not too familiar with the ins and outs of running a website but what website requires that much maintenance downtime?

It's also worth noting that they're shortening the enrollment period by 45 days as well.

It's not maintenance. It's clear sabotage.

He can then stand at the podium, look you in the eye, and say "Look! The website can't even run properly! Obamacare is failing!"

IMO the below (from the article but not mentioned in the headline) is a far bigger and more important problem than slightly extended scheduled maintenance outages:

Additionally, the federal government has slashed marketing and outreach funds to $10 million, down from $100 million. The administration also drastically cut grants provided to "navigators" who educate and help consumers enroll in coverage.

Under Obama the enrollment period was extended several times in order to allow people more time to apply. And even a single day made a huge difference. Cutting back will certainly cause the opposite effect. Sunday is also a day when people are usually off so it could be worse than a Monday would be.

Without him telling bright and clear that his fellow party members lied to the public, makes this just a nice distraction tactic, as they know they cant bring it through, and now they can at least still pretend it was a good work and that mccain just prevented it..... Really, easy tactic in the situation. Yeah, the lying will continue, nothing, really NOTHING showed that anyone of the GOP lied from the point of their supporters or Fox News.............. its just an old man being grumpy

A Top Republican Just Issued A Stunning Rebuke Of Senate’s Trumpcare Bill 202-224-3121

The Republican in question is Brian Sandoval, Govenor of Nevada, and he is rather pissed at Heller for sponsoring the bill. Doubt it will change anything since I cannot see Heller flipping on something he wrote, but it adds more to the pile of evidence showing what a crapfest this bill is.

Direct quotes from Nevada’s Republican Governor Brian Sandoval:

“Flexibility with reduced funding is a false choice,” Sandoval said in a statement to The Nevada Independent. “I will not pit seniors, children, families, the mentally ill, the critically ill, hospitals, care providers, or any other Nevadan against each other because of cuts to Nevada’s healthcare delivery system proposed by the Graham-Cassidy amendment.”

“I have said many times before that I will not support legislation that may result in a cost shift to the State or result in Nevadans losing insurance coverage,” Sandoval said. “I cannot in good faith support the Graham-Cassidy amendment.”

If only the Republicans in the Congress could grow a spine and vote in the best interests of their states instead of the best interests of a caterpillar coiffed cheeto and his Wall Street cronies.

Trumpcare is an oxymoron.

But then how would they make a ton of money and get reelected?

Morons Who Feared Obama Would Take Their Guns Happy to Have Trump Take Their Health Care

Morons Who Feared Obama Would Take Their Guns Happy to Have Trump Take Their Health Care

I picked up a 9mm for planking (target shooting) right before Obama was elected. I was brought up around guns, had respect for them, and I never had a thought that "Obama was gunna take my guns". I remember clearly going to the store to pick up some ammo a week after he was elected. They were sold out. It was hard as hell to get ammo for the next few years, even though the manufacturers weren't running low.

I am of the firm belief that "Obama's gunna take your guns." was propagated by the gun industry, and was one of the most effective sales campaigns in modern history.

Edit: Plinking not Planking.

I have a friend who legit believes their is a classified section of the ACA that says you have to give up your guns to get healthcare.

We dont talk politics very often.

Knock knock

"Who's there? Is it Obama, and are you here to take my guns?"

"No, it's Putin, and I'm here to take your country."

"Oh. Okay then."

"I need an MRI."

"Not until I get that rifle boy."

Trumps little dick is going to cause big trouble.

seriously, this man is a 5 yo spoiled and unloved child.

poor little donny tiny hands herd someone else has a bigger one!

oh dear oh my that won't do at all!

this was what immediately came to mind when I read the article

Assange is one of the shills that claims FBI = Obama, Trump = Manafort, and legally = illegally

Assange is one of the shills that claims FBI = Obama, Trump = Manafort, and legally = illegally

Assange works for Russia. If that wasn't clear last year, it's definitely clear now.

His credibility has been gone for quite a while now.

Trust nothing this man says.

Whatever anti-establishment cred he might have once had... has been converted to rubles.

Trump is deluded, full stop.

The US has no leverage here. They agreed to the deal, and they already started the process of walking out. The world has no reason to believe the Trump administration will stick to whatever it says anyway.

Exactly. Just plug in any issue after that and it still fits.

He has proved he knows nothing about negotiation. Who wrote that book for him?

The Trump supporters who say Trump's claim "Obama illegally tapped Trump" has been vindicated are arguing: 1) "Obama" = "FBI", 2) "illegally" = "legally", and, 3) "Trump" = "Manafort"

The Trump supporters who say Trump's claim "Obama illegally tapped Trump" has been vindicated are arguing: 1) "Obama" = "FBI", 2) "illegally" = "legally", and, 3) "Trump" = "Manafort"

Don't forget the foresight of starting it in 2014. That's some clairvoyant shit, if Trump supporters are to be believed.

Trump just keeps hiring shitty and criminal people. The other people he's hired has made that abundantly clear, as well as pretty much everything else Trump has done.

Additionally, keep in mind that Trump has already thrown Manafort under the bus -- by having Spicer say Manafort "played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time":

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2017/mar/22/sean-spicer/sean-spicers-false-cla...

And more recently, Corey Lewandowski (Trump's first campaign chair) hasacknowledged the possibility of collusion:

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/corey-lewandowski-if-paul-manafort-roger-stone-colluded-to-infl...

So, the people defending Trump are basically suggesting:

1) Trump found out that Manafort was under FISA warrant

2) I guess they are saying Trump thought Manafort was innocent?

3) So Trump decided to attack Obama, and claim that Trump himself was the subject

4) But now Trump is unwilling to defend Manfort.

And somehow all that makes Trump sensible.

It is rather hypocritical of them to claim that Manafort is not a Trump insider, but wiretapping Manafort is the same as wiretapping Trump

The surveillance on Manafort was through FISA warrant.

School walkouts, police crackdown as St Louis rebellion continues

School walkouts, police crackdown as St Louis rebellion continues

How about a police service that helps the community and doesn't murder black people at will and chant that they own the Streets.

A general state strike would do wonders to this protests. Walking out of school gets attention but stopping the economy could force some change.

You say "old articles", they say "tragedies". If I murder your son for literally nothing, you just gonna be chill about it three years later?

For nothing? Yeah. But if he's running around robbing convenience stores, then I did such a shit job of parenting, I ought to be shot as well.

Jeez, the writing in this article is terrible.

The spelling errors made it unreadable. I clicked out 1/2 of the way through.
