Graham Goes There: He TELLS Barrett to Kill the ACA

Sen. Lindsey Graham (T-SC) (T for Trump) spilled the beans in his opening statement at the Barrett confirmation hearing. Judges and justices are supposed to be vetted for their qualifications to serve, and for their positions on Constitutional theory, and things like that.

Fox News absurdly calls Trump's ABC Town Hall an 'ambush'

I attempted to watch clips of Donald Trump’s ABC Town Hall from last night. It was like watching a concussed orangutan drown in a bucket of Yoo-hoo.  Not sure why Trump agreed to do this, as it was well outside his comfort zone — that being the twin bouncy castles of Fox News and OANN, where…

As most surely know, Trump and the Republicans have filed their initial brief before the Supreme Court seeking to overturn the entire ACA, arguing that the elimination of any tax penalty to enforce the individual mandate renders the original constitutional justification (Congress’s taxing authority) a nullity and that — under something called the “severability doctrine” — the entire…

Trump asks the pressing health care question on everyone's mind

You know the old adage: A shot of insulin, Clorox bleach, hydroxychloroquine, and a sunlamp up the asshole keep the doctor away.  Today, in the middle of some scripted lies about Obamacare and Trump’s own “health” care policies, the tweaking interdimensional fart gremlin inside the pr*sident’s head suddenly decided to chime in:  President Trump: "I don't use insulin….

Trump doubles down on push to murder Obamacare despite coronavirus pandemic

Despite calls from Attorney General Bill Barr to reconsider the administration’s position, Donald Trump today reiterated his belief that the Supreme Court should strike down the Affordable Care Act in its entirety in response to a lawsuit brought by a group of Republican-controlled states.

Kathleen Sebelius Did NOT Say She “Regrets The ACA”

Hey everyone, I rarely do this but I have to call out a diary that is currently called Sebellius Regrets The ACA. By the way, her last name only has one L in it. It’s Kathleen Sebelius. The author took a quote and edited a certain part out of the interview. Here’s the quote the…

Trump and Republicans want SCOTUS to delay death of Obamacare until after election

The background: The Trump administration and several red states have backed a — ridiculous, mind you — challenge to the Affordable Care Act arguing that Congress’ removal of the tax penalty connected to Obamacare’s individual mandate has made the entire law unconstitutional. Republicans hate Obamacare so much — because you can’t spell “Obamacare” without “Obama,”…

Trump just implied he's glad John McCain is dead and thinks he may be in hell

Am I reading too much into this? Here’s Trump’s quote from earlier today. It doesn’t quite capture the vitriol, so feel free to watch the clip for yourself. But take your Dramamine first. (Second tweet) “… both houses where we had Congress, where we had the Senate, and we had wonderful congressmen. We had the House of Representatives…
