Reuters has a piece up today explaining how the Trumpers can (are likely to) bleed-out Obamacare "through administrative actions". Exactly what I've been explaining here on the blog for the last...two months. Worth a read.



"It seems that the Trump Administration now faces a choice whether to actively undermine the ACA or reshape it administratively," Larry Levitt, senior vice president at Kaiser Family Foundation, wrote on Twitter.



"The ACA marketplaces weren't collapsing, but they could be made to collapse through administrative actions," he added.



Kevin Drum at Mother Jones caught this Trump backstabbing of GOP Speaker Paul Ryan....



Trump Tweet yesterday at 10:41AM...."Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M."



Fox's Judge Jeanine tweet yesterday at 9:21 PM...."Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the house.The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill."



On her wingnut program, Judge Jeanine Pirro tenderly defended the person whose campaign personnel are being investigated by the FBI for possible treasonous activity...



(Judge Jeanine) Pirro insisted in her first segment that the failure was on Ryan and not on Trump.



"Folks, I want to be clear. This is not on President Trump," she said.



"No one expected a businessman to completely understand the nuances, the complicated ins and outs of Washington and its legislative process. How would he know on what individuals he could rely?"



"Ryan has hurt you going forward, and he's got to go," Pirro said.



That's how a presidential sycophant talks. Synonyms of the word sycophant?

yes-man, bootlicker, brown-noser, toady, lickspittle, flatterer, flunky, lackey, spaniel, doormat, stooge, cringer, suck, suck-up



This morning, however, at 8:21AM, Tweetfingers blames the new House confederacy and it's fascist funders....



"Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!"



VP Mike Pence joins with Donald to blame the Democrats. Yes, the Democrats...



"With 100 percent of House Democrats – every single one – and a handful of House Republicans actually standing in the way of President Trump’s plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare. We’re back to the drawing board."



"It was a victory for the status quo in Washington, D.C., and it was a victory for the disaster of ObamaCare," Pence added. "I promise you, that victory won’t last long. The American people want ObamaCare gone."



"Every day ObamaCare survives is another day that America suffers," he said.



Yep, there's nothing that illustrates the suffering of America more than 20+ million Americans maintaining health care coverage. The horrors.



To conservatives,,,,,and I've always been amazed at this....admitting mistakes, errors, shortcomings, etc. is a sign of weakness which must be avoided at all costs. Refusing to take responsibility for, well, phuck-ups, like we've just witnessed with something called the AHCA, many conservatives still believe, is a sign of strong leadership.



Tell me, who out there is impressed by people in positions of authority who never take the blame for anything...and instead, always seek to blame others for stuff they were ultimately responsible for? Anyone? Of course not. The kind of people who always seek to blame others when it's obvious that THEY are responsible for whatever failure has transpired are often called...pricks. I bet you know some of those kind of people. They're not very fun to be around.



But when that prickish person who can never take responsibility for any failures is the so-called president of the United States....this never-admitting-wrong-or-failure dynamic just seems like basic cowardice to me. Yes, I'm calling Donald Trump a coward.



Trump blamed illegal immigrants for his 3 million vote popular vote loss to Hillary.



Donald blamed "the generals" for the Yemen cock-up, when he was the only CIC who authorized the raid.



The so-called muscular Leader blamed judges for rejecting his childish and amateurish "danger ban".



Trump blamed main media for uncovering the truth about those Russian connections...and for pointing out the thousands of lies Donald tells.



Tweetfingers blamed the Obama administration (falsely) for spying on members of his campaign and transition team.....members currently being investigated by a counter terrorism team of the FBI.



And now, Trump is blaming everyone but his own administration team for the failure of his own "Day One" campaign promise to...what was it again?..."repeal and replace Obamacare".



Trump is no brave and courageous Leader....he's a coward, always seeking to blame others for his own failures. Always passing the buck. He's the guy we most often seek to avoid having any dealings with in life. He's the office manager or boss who couldn't find their way out of a paper bag, and yet blames those under him/her for anything and everything that goes wrong or fails.



And now that cowardly clown is "moving on" to yuge tax cuts for his fellow billionaires at a time when the wealth and income disparity gap between the haves and the have-nots in America has reached obscenity levels.



How can such a coward....such a two-faced ass....make America great again?



Answer: He can't.



Love live the Resistance.
