HYPOCRITE TRUMP Rips Obama's Executive Orders as 'Major Power Grabs of Authority'

A Cautionary Note On The Latest Effort By Trump And The Republicans To Judicially Overturn The ACA

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 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.

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.

Trump hoping to con Americans on health care for one more election cycle

Boy, this is rich: Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work. Premiums & deductibles are far too high – Really bad HealthCare! Even the Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for all, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance. The Republicans….. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2,…
