Trump said on day one he would get rid of Obamacare and we would get health care that was better and cheaper. Obviously he had no clue what he was talking about.

On North Korea we will be lucky if the two bullies who run the two countries involved don't blow up the whole world.

More Libertarian Claptrap. Were it not for Bush II's unmitigated fiscal ineptitude, there would never have been a reason to run up the debt.

Unless you can offer detailed, specific FACTS to support that statement, it's pure accusation devoid of evidence. But hey, that's the only way you know how to roll, isn't it?

Pretty simple!Maybe even you can understand it! Healthcare was supposed to be self sustainable under Obamacare and it isn't! North Korea's weapons capabilities ballooned big time under Obama while he wasted time with worthless sanctions!

Donald Trump has spent much of his first year in office trying to sabotage the American health-care system. These acts of administrative vandalism have been about as subtle as the president’s taste in décor. In interviews with major publications, Trump repeatedly threatened to destabilize the Obamacare marketplaces — by abruptly halting subsidies to insurers — as a means of eroding popular support for the law.

His Health Department took taxpayer funds that it was supposed to spend on advertisements encouraging people to enroll in the Affordable Care Act and spent them on ads encouraging the public to support the law’s repeal. His administration signaled that it might not enforce the tax penalty for refusing to sign up for insurance.

And, in recent weeks, the White House slashed Obamacare’s advertising budget by 90 percent, while cutting funding for the law’s outreach groups.

PHILADELPHIA—House Speaker Paul Ryan told House and Senate Republicans that lawmakers likely won’t repeal and replace Obamacare until March or April.

Trump sent 18 tweets on Puerto Rico on Saturday. And made things a whole lot worse

By Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

Updated 7:09 AM ET, Sun October 1, 2017

In an 11-hour period beginning at 7:19 a.m. and ending at 6:46 p.m. Saturday, the President of the United States ripped off 18 -- yes, 18! -- tweets dealing with the dire situation in Puerto Rico following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria.

What's more remarkable than Donald Trump -- aka the commander in chief, aka the most most powerful person in the country -- tapping out 18 tweets on a single subject in less than 12 hours is the tone of those tweets: Negative, defensive and dark.

Puerto Rico is not a nation. They are part of the USA.

Trapped in the mountains, Puerto Ricans don’t see help, or a way out

The day Hurricane Maria swiped through these mountains, the loose, wet dirt started to tumble and roll. It broke through the gate and through the door. It moved with ferocity and determination. It covered and filled everything.

“It looked like chocolate,” said Ferdinand Ramos, a 63-year-old retired police officer whose home was directly in the path of massive landslides. The viscous mud crashed into his living room and kitchen, leaving a shin-high sludge.

Then, for almost nine days, Ramos and Norma Jimenez and members of their extended family were trapped on their property. No one came to help. Their home on the remote outskirts of this town 60 miles southwest of San Juan became a prison.

Even after they cleaned up inside, they had no way to leave — the mud, broken trees and chunks of debris had piled up outside. On Thursday — eight days after Maria had passed — a municipal utility worker cleared their street.

The family had almost run out of drinking water. Their isolated community of Caonillas had received no aid from the local or federal government, residents said. And they had no way to make the perilous trek to town; the winding roads had been obliterated

It wasn't sick until the Republicans cut off food and water.

And by the way, the only states 'struggling', are the ones that rejected federal ACA contributions. Go figure.

So, if the 'horse' dies... it'll be murder by GOP. whistle

Away from his teleprompter, Trump causes more trouble for himself

MSNBC 4 hours ago

Yesterday morning, Donald Trump addressed the nation on the mass shooting in Las Vegas, and managed to stick to the carefully written script on his teleprompter. There were no asides, no tangents, no tantrums, and none of the staples of this president's approach to communicating with the public.

Many observers exhaled deeply when it was over, relieved that Trump didn't use mass murder to say something offensive. Some in the media were a bit too effusive in their praise of the remarks, probably because they were pleasantly surprised the president resisted his usual impulses.

The trouble, of course, was that Trump's speech didn't sound anything like Trump. The Atlantic's David Frum, a former George W. Bush speechwriter, explained, "Speeches are watched as well as heard, and the viewer saw a president who wished he were somewhere else because he had been compelled to pretend something so radically false to his own nature."

This morning Trump briefly spoke to reporters as he departed the White House for a trip to Puerto Rico, and without the benefit of his teleprompter, the president was free to say what he was thinking. Reflecting on the Las Vegas slayings and the first-responders at the scene, Trump said today, "Look, we have a tragedy. What happened is, in many ways, a miracle."

He then turned his attention to Puerto Rico's crisis, and the "great job" he believes he and his team have done. The Washington Post reported:

Trump's mixed reviews, however, did not stop him from lavishing praise on himself and his administration. On Tuesday, as the president, clad in a black windbreaker and khakis, departed the White House, he said [San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz] has "come back a long way," before returning to one his favorite topics -- himself and his own performance.

"I think it's now acknowledged what a great job we've done, and people are looking at that," he said. "And in Texas and in Florida, we get an A-plus. And I'll tell you what, I think we've done just as good in Puerto Rico, and it's actually a much tougher situation. But now the roads are cleared, communications is starting to come back. We need their truck drivers to start driving trucks."

According to a variety of media accounts, Trump went on to say that Puerto Ricans "have to give us more help."

Wait, it gets worse.

Once the president was speaking to his fellow Americans on the devastated island, Trump added, "Now I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack."

As if locals, struggling to survive, really need to hear right now about the fiscal challenges the president doesn't understand anyway.

He added that Puerto Rico has had it rough, but the island didn't suffer a "real catastrophe" such as Hurricane Katrina.

All of this has a familiar feel. The day violence erupted in Charlottesville, Trump responded by blaming "both sides" -- racists and those who oppose them -- for the unrest. A day later, the president delivered more sensible remarks from the White House while reading from his teleprompter. But Trump soon had a meltdown during in a press conference, at which he spoke without a prepared text, and ended up defending at least some of the bigots as "very fine people."

Now we're seeing a replay. Whether the president understands this or not, Trump tends to cause the most trouble for himself when he says what's actually on his mind.
