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.

A late start today, but Here’z the Gnuz!

The problem is the prices. Opaque and sky high bills are breaking Americans — and our health care system
H/T Vox
The systematic dismantling of the Health Care system may be the precursor to Single Payer…in my dreams…

And,
White House paper: Corporate tax cut would boost wages
H/T The Hill
Read the fine print…Save the average household $4,000 per year. Just more dumfukkery, there should be no expectation that any tax savings would be used for anything but automation efficiency to drop the cost of goods and stay competitive…and put more workers out of a job.

Finally,
Deficit hawks trampled in GOP tax cut stampede
H/T Politico
“But Republicans are still squabbling over the rising red ink, potentially jeopardizing Trump’s tax plan.”
What ever happened to “Mortgaging our children and grandchildren’s future”???

Open Thread, pick it up and run with it!

It’s freaky Friday the XIIIth, so, be careful out there…

And here’s whatz in the Gnuz…

Trump to cut off key ObamaCare payments
H/T The Hill
He Broke It, He Owns It. The impact will be felt by millions who remain on the ACA plans, while the healthier population diverts to the cheap, low coverage ones.
If HWSNBN (He who should not be named) thinks this will force Dems to the negotiation table, he’s wrong. Dems should come to said table with only one demand. Single Payer…

And

Roy Moore Led Charge Against Removing Segregation From Alabama Constitution
H/T TPM
Salient quote: Alabama’s state constitution still contains the following language:
“Separate schools shall be provided for white and colored children, and no child of either race shall be permitted to attend a school of the other race.”
Guess what Alabamans, YOU OWN THiS.

Finally,

In a radical departure, Trump health officials want to define life as starting at “conception”
H/T Vox
We saw this coming, with HWSNBN’s cozying up to the evangevilist crowd..

Open Thread, have a good weekend, please.

Tuesday, or, as I prefer Twozday, az itz the zecond day of the week. Here’s the Gnuz!

Trump Fixates on NFL protests while Ignoring the Disaster in Puerto Rico
H/T AlterNet via Salon
Trump has no clue about presidenting, just has to be the petty jackass
And

‘It’s God’s plan’: North Carolina church helped members commit unemployment fraud so they could keep tithing
H/T Raw Story
Good ole fashioned Xian Hypocrisy, on display at it’s shining finest.

Finally,

Last-ditch repeal bill appears dead
H/T The Hill
Once again, a small handful of ‘principled’ Republican Senators jam up the efforts of the majority party to screw the American people. Now they’ll just have to suffer with health care insurance for the next few years…pity.

Open Thread, enjoy one peace at a time.

It’s almost Friday, and herez the gnuz

Democrat on Trump pre-existing condition claims: ‘This is a lie’
H/T The Hill
Y’see, the states are going to do the taking away of the pre-existing condition requirement, so, in the Drumpfmind the bill doesn’t actually do that. Except what Senator Murphy is pointing out, that is exactly what is going to happen.

And

This report tells us why Trump is so afraid of Robert Mueller’s investigation
H/T Vox
Be afraid MrPrezidunce, be very afraid. Let’s see what happens when the micro-targeting of Russian bot election ads gets linked to Mr. Prezidunce.

Finally,

Trump hires campaign workers instead of farm experts at USDA
H/T Politico
Got Banana Republic? Cronyism? Deconstruction of the freaking regular, or even shallow state?

Open Thread, digest with appropriate levels of biotics…

Daily Gnudze

Hump day again, and here’s the mid-week Gnudze…

Backlash throws last-ditch Obamacare repeal effort into doubt
H/T Politico
We’ve got to protect our phony-baloney jobs, gentlemen

And

The bait and switch at the heart of the new Obamacare repeal bill
H/T Vox
If this passes, and the House passes it, perhaps the rubes will finally wake up.

Finally,

Tom Price spent $25,000 in tax dollars to fly from Philadelphia to D.C
H/T Salon
Yes, but he’s just entitled because.

Open Thread, enjoy one byte at a thyme

It’s Friday, in case no one told you! Welcome to the almost weekend, and here’s what’s in the Gnuz…

Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, and why Trump is so afraid of it, explained
H/T Vox
And when they get the complete set of goods on him, Trump will fire him, then be impeached.

And
DOJ warns the media could be targeted in crackdown on leaks
H/T The Hill
‘Democracy Dies in Darkness.’

Finally,
Obamacare Rage in Retrospect
H/T NY Times
Mr. Krugman nails it again
