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.

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.

All the Gnuz that’s fit to blog…well, at least some of it.
OK, not a whole lot, but here’s three for your daily perusal…

Soviet leader Nikita Khruschev’s granddaughter: Trump’s attacks on media are just like Stalin
H/T Raw Story
Ouch. From a person who’s nation knows what defines a dictator

And

Fed up with Congress, Trump whacks Obamacare with his pen
H/T Politico
An executive order is expected to encourage creation of skimpy, cheaper plans that would take healthier enrollees from Obamacare.
Skimpy and cheap works great until you get sick, or have a pre-existing condition, etc. Welcome to $10,000 deductibles.

Finally,

GOP Senator To Trump: ‘Are You Recanting Of Your Oath’ Of Office?
H/T TPM
Oath? What Oath? HWSNBN* doesn’t remember any oath. And if he did, he certainly had no intention of honoring it. Honor is for suckers and losers.

*HWSNBN=POTUS (He who should not be named, yes, ripped off from Harry Potter, totally)

Hump Day arrives, and here’s the HD Gnuz:

File this one under just Nucking Futz.
Zinke: Taking Down Confederate Statues will Upset ‘Native Indians’
H/T TPM
The dumfukkery is now an avalanche of the stoopid

And

Trump asked for tenfold increase in US nukes in meeting that prompted Tillerson’s ‘moron’ remark: report
H/T Raw Story
So, we need to take our nuclear arsenal up from the current 4,000 to the mid-sixties level of 32,000? And violate how many treaties we are signatories to?:?? Yes, a moron would think so…

Finally,

4 things Congress and the White House could do to stop Puerto Rico’s crisis from getting worse.
The local government will run out of money in a few weeks.

H/T Vox
But they won’t. Don’t really give a crap. They’re folks of the brownish persuasion, you see.

Here’s whatz in the gnuz this Mondayish Morning:

Smerconish says Corker’s Building A 25th Amendment Case
H/T C&L
Even though this tack hasn’t got a chance of being carrier out by the bootlicking Republican Congress, it’s nice to see the Senator from Tennessee getting a roundhouse right to the ample gut of HWSNBN. (He who should not be named)…

And

Trump reignites NFL protest controversy by ordering Mike Pence to leave a Colts game
H/T Vox
Hilarious, but taxpayer costly (to the tune of $200,000) Kabuki theater, demonstrating the depths to which the Vice President will abase himself to ingratiate and pay fealty to HWSNBN. On a brighter note, he escaped having to watch two of the worst football teams play an hour of crapball.

Finally,

http://thehill.com/policy/finance/354297-five-challenges-facing-gop-on-tax-reform
H/T The Hill
Crunch time, as in nut-cracker if they don’t somehow manage to pass something, anything, a tax cut, tax reform, tax man, no, wait, that’s a Beatles song…

Open Thread, survive the week, resist.
