And,
The Health-Care Industry Is Sick
My insurer denied me coverage for a breathing machine and revealed the flaws of the for-profit health-care system.

H/T The Nation

Tis Wednezday, and herein be the Gnuz(es)

Donald Trump is a dangerously weak president
The media is crediting him with a tax overhaul victory. But he still holds remarkably little clout in Washington.

H/T Vox
Neustadt’s book was one of my favorite reads as a poli sci major in college. I remember most clearly the paragraph where Ike was asked about the power of the presidency, and he replied (as I paraphrase from memory), I’m just a glorified clerk, but, the power of the presidency is the ability to use the bully pulpit to convince others that what you are asking them to do is in their own self interest. This article is a great read for those of you who are poli-sci enthusiasts…
Trump has no concept of this. Nil. Nada. Nuttin.

And

Report: Intel Panels Interviewed Figure Who Attended Key Trump Tower Meeting
H/T TPM
Gotta wonder which Drumpf toady this witness’ testimony will show to be untruthy?

Finally,

Trump: Dems, GOP will eventually develop ‘great new HealthCare plan’
H/T The Hill
A broken clock is right twice a day.
And the next ‘great new HealthCare plan will be called Single Payer. And the current prezidunce will have had nothing at all to do with it, except get people ready by screwing them over to the point where the entire Congress and Executive Branch are in the hands of the capable.

This Visionary Sci-Fi Author Sees the Destruction of Human Civilization: Predatory Capitalism
H/T Alternet
Good read, food for thought.

Finally,

Time’s up: As CHIP expires unrenewed, Congress blows a chance to save healthcare for 9 million children
H/T LA Times
Maybe, just maybe, as Red States get screwed over, and their children lose medical coverage because the Congress is too busy giving corporations and the rich a tax cut…Maybe they’ll start figuring out they’ve been screwed, blued and tattooed.

Open Thread, let’s get through the holiday season in one peace.

And

Trump caught tweeting about the wrong mass shooting
H/T Raw Story
Fumbduck Prezidunce obviously keeping a library of insta-tweets to choose from. Sad!

Finally,

GOP targets health mandate in tax reform
H/T The Hill
They need to carve out more money to get this mess fillibuster proof. Only fifteen million or so will stop buying insurance, so that’s OK by them…Amerika the fumbduckable.

Welcome to Wednesday, why the hell is the d before the n?
Anyhoo, here’z the Gnuz

Why Trump Will Regret Passing Tax Reform
What else is keeping the GOP establishment in line behind him?
H/T Politico – Matt Latimer
This is an amazing read. Mr. Latimer hits the nail on the head repeatedly, and repeatedly, and…well, you get the idea…

And

President Trump admits he’s trying to kill Obamacare. That’s illegal.
H/T Vox
Oh, snap. More grounds for impeachment, or just another cup of weak moron cofeve?

Finally,

New health deal falls flat with GOP
H/T The Hill
You mean the Deal made between Senators Murray and Alexander? The BIPARTISAN bill that Trump first liked, then someone told him it had to pass the House.
The House, where it had no chance of passing. The passing of which would THEN render it unto his desk for signature?
Yes. That one. No wonder coward boy doesn’t like it any more. It’s a ‘loser’. Spite, malice, and failure to live up to his sworn oath of office.

Open Thread, rip it to shreds!

It’s Tuesday, so here’z the TuesGnuz…

Trump Blames ‘Generals’ For Telling Him Obama Didn’t Call Family Members
H/T C&L
Always has to blame others for his failures and lies. So, is he lying as he blames others for his bullsh***ing?

And

Trump’s Latest Obamacare Attack Triggers Rate Hikes, Lawsuits, Confusion
H/T TPM
Not just raising rates, but forcing insurers out of the market, huge swaths of people to not be able to afford health insurance, and costing the gummint billions…preziduncial.

Finally,

The 4 steps Republicans have to take to pass tax reform
H/T Vox
Phase 1: before cutting taxes, Republicans need to pass a budget
Phase 2: overcome key policy disagreements
Phase 3: actually go through regular order — or so they say
Phase 4: get this bill through the Senate’s obscure budget rules — which is the really hard part

Let’s have a pool on which phase(s) the Republican’ts will fall on their faces. Perhaps giving HeWhoShouldNotBeNamed a __________ fill in the medical condition you prefer…

Open Thread, let’s try to get through the week with our sanity intact.
