‘RINO-Care’: Sarah Palin trashes Paul Ryan’s stripped down health care plan as more ‘socialized medicine’

Published

on

Add former half-term Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin to the list of Republicans who hate Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) replacement plan for Obamacare, with the former veep candidate denigrating it as “RINO-Care” – short for “Republican In Name Only.”

Speaking with the Steve Bannon-influenced Breitbart news site, Palin trashed Ryan’s proposal, sarcastically mocking the top Republicans behind it as “fearless leaders.”

“I do want to speak about this, but I am tempted to say not another word from our fearless leaders about this new form of Obamacare that I’m going to call RINO-care—not another word from them until we are definitively told that there is no provision whatsoever allowing Congress to exempt itself whatsoever with this law,” Palin said.

“As with anything else mandated by Congress, every single dotted I and crossed T better apply to them, too,” Palin continued. “And not just the people who they are lording this thing over because, remember, this is government-controlled health care, the system that requires enrollment in an unaffordable, unsustainable, unwanted, unconstitutional continuation of government-run medicine, and even in this new quasi-reformed proposal, there is still an aspect of socialism. That’s the whole premise here.”

Palin also accused GOP lawmakers who are pushing their version of the healthcare replacement plan of being in the pocket of big business, saying, “It would be really helpful if every single one of these politicians would do like the NASCAR drivers do—and it’s been said before—but let them wear their sponsors plastered all over their three-piece suits when they show up so we know what side they’re on and who they’re actually doing their bidding for.”

While Palin said she didn’t have any alternatives to Ryan’s plan, she stated that she has “great faith in President Donald Trump,” adding that he will “step in and fix” Ryan’s plan.

“He already has a track record of doing so well in these first months,” she added. “I’m just really proud to have been part of the constituency that wanted him in there and worked hard to get him in there.”

How the Iraq war and the Great Recession of 2008 paved the way for the Trump catastrophe

Published

on

In my dream, it’s 2021. Donald Trump has lost by the biggest popular vote margin in history. (The Electoral College? Unanimous!) Criminal charges rain down on him. As squad cars ring Trump Tower, a nasal voice shouts, “Come and get me, dirty coppers!” From a bullhorn, the reply issues: “Come out with your tiny hands in the air!”

Nancy Pelosi must have dreams just like it. “Sources” say she seeks to quell impeachment by declaring she’d rather see Trump in jail. Who wouldn’t? But would the next batch of Barrs, Muellers and Rosensteins be any more likely than the last to get the job done? It’s a sweet dream, but a risky bet.

Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats

Published

on

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."
