As Trump Fiddles With Meaningless Tweets About His 'Health Care Plan' , Democrats Burn Him At Barrett Hearings
  By Trump tweeting out more lies about his non-existent health care plan at the same time the Democrats are explaining in detail why ending the ACA would be disastrous for real Americans, Trump played right into the Democrats hands.

We will have Healthcare which is FAR BETTER than ObamaCare, at a FAR LOWER COST - BIG PREMIUM REDUCTION. PEOPLE WITH PRE EXISTING CONDITIONS WILL BE PROTECTED AT AN EVEN HIGHER LEVEL THAN NOW. HIGHLY UNPOPULAR AND UNFAIR INDIVIDUAL MANDATE ALREADY TERMINATED. YOU’RE WELCOME!

==================================================================================================


As he has done time to time for the past four years, more often during election seasons,  Trump is proclaiming a health care plan to replace Obamacare.  Problem is, since he first started saying this in 2015, no such plan has ever been seen. On this extremely important issue, Trump appears to be feeding us flim flam. 


He either has a plan, or a concrete outline of a plan, or he doesn't. By all appearances, he doesn't. 


This incontrovertible fact unfortunately leads us to a sad conclusion  -  Trump doesnt care about presenting a new health care plan  for Americans, instead he cares about removing another vestige of Barack Obama, the Affordable Care Act. 


We can discern this from two connected facts -  Trump nominated to the Supreme Court a judge who is known to oppose the ACA. She criticized Chief Justice Roberts' opinion in a previous case which saved the ACA, and Trump knows this. He picked her because she might vote against Obamacare in the SC. 



The second fact is he has no replacement plan. He says and says and says he does, to no avail - it is all highly transparent bullshit. To save his life Trump could not explain his "health care plan" to a tv interviewer, or in a newspaper op-ed if he ever mustered the nerve to try and write something in his own words. 


Today, Democrat after Democrat used their time in the Barrett hearing to attack Trump for wanting to end Obamacare without a plan to replace the ACA guarantee of coverage for pre-existing conditions. 


One conservative commenter on tv said the Democrats did nothing to derail Barrett's nomination, but did a lot to bolster their argument against Trump.    By Trump tweeting out more lies about his non-existent health care plan at the same time the Democrats are explaining in detail why ending the ACA would be disastrous for real Americans, Trump played right into the Democrats hands.

President Donald Trump is urging the U.S. Senate to expedite the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett and shift its focus to another coronavirus relief package.
Trump reportedly said today the Lindsey Graham is giving the Democrats too much time to speak at the hearing.

Are we to assume that Trumps healthcare plan is as real as Mexico's payments for the boarder wall?

And the citizens are going to vote in 22 days and shove it up Trump's and the GOPs ass.

Biden will nominate and get confirmed along party line vote at least two moderate judges to pack the court with.....  I'm ready to bet the farm on it.

After Biden is elected, I truly hope he packs the courts.

It would set a bad precedent, but I'm not sure what other choice there is.  Republicans are willing to break their own rules to shove party above country.

Exactly. Dems need to stop trying to play nice and by the rules. The repubs clearly don't.

He already has been.  The biggest difference is that at least Democrats will use qualified people.

I find it sad that after 4+ years of trump promising his, "repeal and replace" plan, he still has the balls to say it will be coming out, "soon". There is no replace plan, there never was. 

News flash: There is no, "wonderful, inexpensive healthcare for all", plan. And if trump is reelected, there will still be no plan. Which is trumps plan for everything..."no plan at all". 

I do find it ironic that all the care donny received while in the hospital was paid for by taxpayers, (you know, that socialized medicine thingy), and still has the balls to to slam socialized medicine. 

Trump's hypocrisy marches on.
