Jimmy vs. the Nazis

Kimmel vs the Nazis WP

A while back, Jimmy Kimmel had a Senator Bill Cassidy on his show.  Bill PROMISED Jimmy that he would write a bill that would make sure that Jimmy’s son would remain able to have health insurance.  See, Jimmy’s newborn was born with a heart defect and is only able to live because the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — makes sure those with preexisting medical conditions are able to be insured.

Well, it turns out that Cassidy is a Republican and *surprise* Republicans are half-witted white supremacist LIARS.  Cassidy is the Cassidy in the Graham-Cassidy Republican Healthcare poison pill.

Surprise, it wipes out coverage for people with preexisting conditions.

Jimmy had to endure some anti-science cretins who came out against *him* for calling Cassidy out for lying right to his face on national TV.

Of course, first came Cassidy himself.  Then Lindsey Graham.  Then Fox talking slime, Brian Kilmeade and was followed by some condescending tripe out of Chris Christie’s fat mouth (even though he, too, was even against this sick bill.

So, Jimmy sat down with his son who is alive because of Obamacare, and wrote a nice monologue response to Cassidy and Lindsey Graham.

As you’ll see in Jimmy Kimmel’s video from his show last night, below, Kimmel basically roasted to charcoal all involved in this sick, bigoted mess of a tax giveaway to the super-rich under the guise of “healthcare,” and also noted that:

  1. The Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill would gut $243 BILLION from federal healthcare assistance.
  2. States would be able to price you out of your of coverage under the Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill if you dare have a preexisting condition.
    – This means that if you have a preexisting condition like MS, a heart defect, cancer
    in remission, diabetes, etc., that you may be granted healthcare, but it would be
    allowed to be so expensive as to price you out and then not even cover your
    preexisting condition anyway.
  3. Federal funding disappears completely after 2026 under the Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill.
  4. The Graham-Cassidy TrumpCare bill would no longer make insurance companies pay for essential care like maternity care; cancer screenings; or pediatric visits.
  5. The American Medical Association (AMA); the Muscular Dystrophy Association; the the National Multiple Sclerosis Society; Blue Cross / Blue Shield; the ALS Association; America’s Health Insurance Plans; the Cistic fibrosis foundation; the American Medical Association (AMA); the American Hospital Association; the Association of American Retired Persons (AARP);  the National Council for Behavioral Health (represents more than 2,000 mental health and addiction treatment groups); the American Academy of Pediatrics;  the American Cancer Society; the Cancer Action Network; the American Diabetes Association; the American Heart Association; the American Lung Association; the Arthritis Foundation; the National Health Council; and the March of Dimes all spit on this vile bill.

Kimmel shows he very much gets it.  It’s Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, along with Trump and all of the rest of the Deplorable anti-science, pro-rich daddy tax break Senators who actually back it who don’t.

Even with as much of a BAD joke as this bill is and with as ZERO support as it has, don’t assume it is going to crash and burn.  It is still up to YOU to activate and make it DIE.  Until we depose this criminally illegitimate poseur of a President and right the good ship America, we are going to have to FIGHT for every breath.  Nazis never let up.  These Nazis have an ex-KGB spy for their leader.

FIGHT!

Flood the lines of these “swing voters” with phone calls and tell them mitts off ACA.

Start making the calls!

Democratic Governors Pick Up Where Trump Tripped and Dropped the Ball

Governors Take Control WP

California governor Jerry Brown has had to take the reins to right California’s ecological wagon as Trump spooked the horses and left it careening toward a mountain bend.  Old West movie stylz.  In a nut-shot to Trump, Brown has announced plans to have California host a Global Climate Summit this summer.  Not to mention the fact that he has already announced that California — the 5th largest economy in the world — will abide by, and exceed the goals set by the 2016 Paris Climate Accord.

Governors Take Control 2 WP

Donald Trump has completely dropped the ball for America where US climate maintenance is concerned.

He’s hired a director of the Environmental Protection Agency who vowed years before to destroy the agency, and has sued it to do just that.

“For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn.

USA Today –> https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/2016/12/07/donald-trump-scott-pruitt-environmental-protection-agency/95104512/

Now, as head of the agency, he it taking counsel from Oil Industry executives and has slashed regulations that protect Americans from their air and water poisoned by corporations.

Below, a TV interview Brown gave to a hostile reporter.  He handled himself with, dare I say, Presidential demeanor?  And, no, I don’t think Jerry will or WOULD run for President in 2020.  The right will just have to continue looking for the Donkey to pin the target on for now.  Jerry will retire to legend and mountains of gratitude from his constituents when his next term runs out.

Since our Executive and Legislative branches of government have completely let us down, it is up to Democratic Governors of the states with more than 4 million more voters than the Right Wing Red State Confederacy to save all out butts.

Pretty Lindsey Flails in Idiot Pants

Gay Lindsey.jpg

I hear that sweet little Lindsey Graham has an amendment to the super-secret Nazi “Kill  the black guy’s healthcare law” bill ready to shiny-penny it past his naive base.  He’s rumored to be ready to offer free bags of Skittles for all the Rainbows in his district if they’ll be cool with losing their healthcare.

Skittles are expensive, but he has to placate the gay following Trump’s attack on the “T” from the mighty LGBT who are / were serving in the US military. 

I’m being sarcastic and just plain silly, but there’s nothing of any serious merit to ANYTHING the Nazis are trying to shove up our tailpipes with this aggravated rape of a bill.

The New Statesman –>  http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/health/2017/07/no-time-civility-towards-republicans-even-john-mccain

I heard he just called the latest “skinny bill” his Reich has proposed as a fraud.  A fraud he would go ahead and vote for.  As long as the NOBLE congress pinkie swears they’ll create an extra-legislative council of some sort to not pass  it and work on a brand new one, or some stupid BS.

The Flushed Legacy of the Former Maverick

mccain tumor face WP

John McCain has a cancer that is going to kill him. And, that is truly too bad.  It is so sad.  Truly.

John McCain was allegedly a “maverick” at one point in his career as a Senator.  His campaign staff likes it pointed out and FOX News is always happy to do so.  Press junket style.

Upon his diagnosis, he was pretty much futilely operated on.  It was performed on him at our taxpayer expense.  That’s alright, because that’s how we do in America.  We look out after our own.  We bring them comfort and aid when they are down.

But, before he even had time to heal, he rushed back to Washington D.C. so he could vote to make sure that he could participate in stealing healthcare from between 22 and 33 million other Americans who he feels are less worthy of healthcare than he is.

The a woman screaming at him as he exits the Senate vote is part of letting the “maverick” know that his shameful action today is ensuring that this will be the entirety of his legacy.

Trumpcare is Terminal

USA REPUBLICANS SENATEThe Senate has taken some hard body shots this week because it has come out that as HORRIBLE the House Trumpcare bill was, the Senate’s is much, much worse.  At least for everyone not in it to mine for huge tax cuts to their riches.

CNBC –> http://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/21/opposition-to-republican-obamacare-replacement-grows-even-among-gop.html

Well, I don’t think Trump will be able to hack it in battle.  Coward.  He’ll try to blame it on “obstructionist democrats” and just say, “fine, keep your Obamacare and enjoy the poorhouse.”

It will give him a foil to perpetually campaign about.  “Obama and his secret socialist healthcare DISASTER that we have to fight, fight, fight, ‘cos he has a bunker in Washington, and he’s coming with NATO strike forces to TAKE YOUR GUNS!”

There won’t be a “repeal/replace” orgy.  So, we need to focus on the next target for his destructive, flea’s attention span.

Schumer Calls Out SUPER-SHADY Republican Senators

Dem ACA Schumer Speech Header WPThe biggest news right now isn’t the monumentally epic Russian Spy US government takeover story.  Nope.  What’s going on in the shadows is even more frightening.

The video below shows Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sounded the alarm speaking in Senate chambers today.  Following is Chris Hayes explaining exactly what Mitch McConnel is doing, with the help of Andrew Slavitt, the recently “recent” administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Here is a Washington Post article about the shady dealings, and below it, the video.

Trump Tweets in his Big Boy Pants Again

Trump Big Boy Pants Tweets WP COPY

Published in Magnana Mouse

Trump haz a sad.  His hapless Republican party passed a little 5-day stay of execution for our government.  They passed a bill that keeps parks open and lights on for five whole days.  And, to do it, they had to omit any mention of funding a stupid wall.

It funds Planned Parenthood.

It doesn’t gut healthcare.

It’s basically a huge loss for King Douche — the negotiator.

So, of course he tweeted like a 13 year-old who has to wear a helmet on the special little bus.

First, he shows off that he knows how a bill moves through the Senate.  Or, doesn’t:

Trump Tweet 1

Then, President Baby-hands tells us how we might fix it.  Like, how you fix a dog:Trump Tweet 2

He really told us.

So, Twitter kind of told him.  And, sources say he didn’t appreciate it.

Trump Buttons WP

First, Mike Williams comes in with a shot across his humanist bow.  Maybe King Dumbass just didn’t know how much a government shutdown will hurt every American.

Trump SUCKS 1

Sure, that’s it.  He’ll see that and realize the cruel err of his ways.

Hahahaha.  Ha.

So, he quickly came back with another angle:  Shame him by letting him know that he’s sounding more like America’s enemies than Captain America:

Trump SUCKS 2

Nice try.  Mike wasn’t paying attention when Trump vied for most vile Authoritarian of the year like it was a 3-point contest.

So, Charles Blamesco came in and dropped the mic explaining to the baby-handed freak of inbreeding that the way he goes about going about is how every bond villain has exited stage left since Ian Flemming went big screen:

Trump SUCKS 3

It’s funny, but it should rightly scare the bejesus out of you.  Trump is attacking the Judicial branch of government and is trying to minimize the ability of the legislature to more than rubber-stamp his executive orders.

Making them all no more than Reich commanders.

He really expects to become King of America.

He Loves You Like the Baby Jesus

0Trump - Believe Me WP

Cross-posted in Magnana Mouse.

He spoke.  Using the best words he has.

It’s clear that he loves us all, every one.  Like the baby Jesus.

He feels such amazing empathy to all the people afflicted with pharmaceutical pain killer addiction.

And, he’s going to save EVERYONE.  Problem solved.

You just have to believe.  Have faith.  If you just have faith in your baby-handed God, he will guide you back to Eden.

Obama Cares FTW

Obama Cares WP

I’ll bet that the GOP FAILS to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare).  They’ll have to fix the parts of it they messed up when Obama and the Democrats worked themselves to the bone to maneuver around Republican obstruction and obstinance just like they’re showing in their crazed attempt to repeal JUST BECAUSE IT BEARS A BLACK MAN’S NAME.

The GOP will scramble to fix it piece-by-piece.  It’s still going to be the healthcare that the first Black President brought us.  No matter how many band aids they slap on it,  it stays OBAMA up in their face. 200 years into our dystopian future, our healthcare will still be OBAMA CARES!
