They should also highlight all the BernieOrBust morons who deliberately spread fake news and tinfoil hat memes. The ones who said they were going to vote for trump because he was a better alternative. The ones who spread the Seth Rich story and everyone told, you're being irresponsible, stop spreading false stories but they just kept posting obvious lies.

You mean these people?

That's undoubtedly a part of it, even the information that has already been released includes pieces targeted at the Bernie or Bust / Jill Stein crowd...

Pointing out division is not spreading it.

Trump’s interview with Sean Hannity reveals he doesn’t know how any of this works

Trump’s interview with Sean Hannity reveals he doesn’t know how any of this works

I liked the segment where Hannity asked him twice what policies would help the "inner cities", and both times Trump couldn't name a single thing, and instead just went on and on about how they're thug infested 3rd world nations.

This was sandwiched between Hannity talking about the murder rate in places like "Chicago" and praises for how wonderful the police are.

Dogs ears were exploding all over the country.

Chicago's murder rate is not even in the top 5 of US cities. Yet conservatives always bring it up. Why? Because they are racists and Chicago has a lot of black people. Oh and Obama is from there.

Who's first? St Louis, MO. And it's double the rate of Chicago.

It's also because of Chicago's gun laws. They love to point out how they don't work while ignoring the fact that people just drive 20 minutes to buy their guns in Indiana.

He also talks over the retreat bugle being played.

No, it's worse than that. He wonders out loud if the bugle is being played for him.

And then suggests that it's being played in honor of Hannity's ratings.

He is unfit. We need a 25th Amendment solution NOW

Humiliated by his failure to repeal Obamacare, Trump punishes Americans with despotic order

Humiliated by his failure to repeal Obamacare, Trump punishes Americans with despotic order

He shook hands and smiled and was about to leave the room until Vice President Mike Pence tapped him and said, “Mr. President? Mr. President, you need to sign it.”

Wow. He really just holds these signings for the applause and he could not care less what he's actually signing...

Here's the myth vs reality paper from NAIC

http://www.naic.org/documents/topics_interstate_sales_myths.pdf

It generally yields a race to the bottom. The insurance companies sell shitty plans for cheap in a state with the laxest regulations and those who live in states with better more expensive plans lose out as their costs rise. And you're stuck with the same problem from before the ACA with people being under-insured.

Furthermore, you'd have a lot of patients who when they get sick find they're shit out of luck. You bought a Utah plan because its super cheap only to find there aren't any doctors in Maryland who are in network with that insurance.

What I wouldn't give for Pence just to let him go one of these times.

Trump: tax cuts will be “biggest ever.” Top Republican senator: nope, Bush’s were bigger.

Trump: tax cuts will be “biggest ever.” Top Republican senator: nope, Bush’s were bigger.

Step 1: Give away massive amounts of cash to the richest people.

Step 2: Start more wars.

Step 3: Blame everyone else for economic implosion.

WINNING.

Step 3 Blame everyone else Obama for economic implosion

In 2001, when Grassley chaired the Senate’s Finance Committee — which oversees tax reform legislation — Bush signed into law a $1.35 trillion tax cut. In 2016, that would be approximately a $1.85 trillion tax cut, Grassley noted.

Currently, Senate Republicans are suggesting massive tax cuts, but smaller than those passed under the Bush administration. The Senate’s budget proposal — which has yet to be voted on — allows for a $1.5 trillion in tax cuts, a number that could shrink in the weeks ahead as Republicans try to reconcile what is looking like a major blow to the deficit.

Regardless, Grassley is still on board with tax reform. If Republicans manage to pass something resembling their tax reform framework, it would enact undoubtedly sweeping changes to the current tax code.

So if Grassley remembers all these details about the Bush tax cuts, how can he forget the fucking aftermath? The Great Recession doesn't ring a bell to him?

Foiled in Congress, Trump Signs Order to Undermine Obamacare

Foiled in Congress, Trump Signs Order to Undermine Obamacare

The order resulted from Mr. Trump’s frustration with his inability to persuade a Republican-controlled Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act, a pillar of President Barack Obama’s legacy. Supporters of the current health law called the order “sabotage,” a way to destroy the Affordable Care Act without winning a majority in Congress.

And so the pattern of undermining existing norms continues. I hope this will be turned down by the courts.

Donald Trump 1/26/16: "We have a president that can't get anything done so he just keeps signing executive orders all over the place."

When in the blue bloody hell are Republicans going to escape their cult of personality long enough to realize that Trump hates the US and is doing everything in his power to destabilize us?

It will.

Donald Trump doesn't seem to understand the stock market. Or the national debt.

People don't understand how stupid this guy really is. He was handed his dads empire, where the lawyers and accountants handled everything. Trump never had to learn anything, and it's clear from the fact that he still managed to destroy it all that he never did.

He's a con and a fraud, nothing more.

Or anything else.

this. I don't understand how people don't understand this. He isn't some sharp entrepreneur who took a few bucks and a dream and turned it into an empire through hard work and smarts...he is a fat rich kid who whines impotently while the adults around him try to mitigate the damage and console him. Then he takes credit for anything they manage to keep him from destroying.

Don the Con!

Obamacare sabotage.

We will make the bridge collapse with no plan for a new bridge. Just wade in the water children.

Okay so this order just directs agencies on how to issue regulation or guidance. But that is a lot more structured than other executive orders that trump has issued. For example, his immigration policy was basically a call to "lock em up" and all the agencies had to figure out what that meant. Or his transgender ban. He just said "get it done" and then the military said "wtf no..." This one is more specific and lays a groundwork for future developments. It's obvious trump actually had help writing this because it has a clear direction. The fact that rand paul likes this is terrifying. The exodus of healthy people from Obamacare plans to association health plans will leave the sick people with RIDICULOUS prices.

Better change the name to trumpcare now. Then he has to own it. Everything from here on out is something that he actively has done. Trumpcare will leave people out in the cold and calling it by its name will force him to own it.

Hahaha. Fuck you sick people. Die!

This needs to be HIGHER.

11:45 a.m. Trump begins to walk out of the room without signing the order

After making his remarks, Mr. Trump began walking out of the room, until Vice President Mike Pence tapped him and reminded him to sign the order. Mr. Trump then turned to the table to sign the executive order.

What the actual fuck

It was obamas thing

Well, that's pretty fucked up.

I'm really not understanding his thinking here. Polls show that most Americans don't want this, Congress has shown that even scummy Republican senators don't want this. Why is he doing this? Seems fucking stupid.

And this isn't the first time he's done that...

Trump to sign order to eliminate ACA insurance rules, undermine marketplaces

Trump to sign order to eliminate ACA insurance rules, undermine marketplaces

My comment from previous article posted about this earlier today -

For anyone who did not watch the press conference, Trump concluded his speech by turning to walk out the door, only to be turned around by half of the people in the room to go back, sit down and sign the damn EO. Is this the 3rd time that's happened this year?

The consequences of this election are not going to be recoverable for a lot of people.

I think his dementia has Alzheimers.

Really? That's all you got. Here's a thought. DO SOMETHING! get this fuck out of office

Oh shut the fuck up you whiny little pissant, at this point you're like a fucking dog that's been conditioned to growl whenever her name's mentioned. Check the OP's post history, he's a blatent troll and just one of many that's been pushing attacks on Pelosi to get people mad at her without them even really understanding why. You don't hit -100 on a web site that'lll applaud you for literally farting in church without a good reason.

This is STILL an alt-right news source, for some reason they're trying to act normal right now, but I'm still downvoting.

I wish Democrats would stop referring to these things in terms of emotion and instead call it what it is — a dereliction of duty

I know Nancy. I know.
