The gall of this man. The nerve. The indecency of his statements is so worthy of condemnation that I can't believe everyone isn't telling him to go fuck himself right to his face:
President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering critique of the Affordable Care Act at the White House on Monday and ratcheted up the pressure on Senate Republicans to keep their campaign promise to repeal and replace the law.
Speaking on the eve of the Senate's critical vote that could seal the fate of Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare, Trump drew on the stories of struggle of Americans who joined him at the White House to remind Republicans of their seven year-old promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.
"For the last seven years, Republicans have been united in standing up for Obamacare's victims. Remember repeal and replace, repeal and replace, they kept saying it over and over again. Every Republican running for office promised immediate relief from this disastrous law," Trump said. "We, as a party, must fulfill that solemn promise to the voters of this country to repeal and replace.
"But so far, Senate Republicans have not done their job in ending the Obamacare nightmare. They now have a chance however to hopefully -- hopefully -- fix what has been so badly broken for such a long time and that is through replacement of a horrible, disaster known as Obamacare," Trump added.
Oh, that'll fix everything. Once a president with 36% approval and the FBI coming at him on all sides calls you out, you've got to vote to save him in the United States Senate, don't you? Uh, hell no to that. If they vote, don't be shocked to see a dozen Senators abandon him. But, remember this--if the Senate votes in lockstep and finally repeals Obamacare, that's how you'll know the fix is in and they were all bought off. It won't come down to doing the right thing because it's everyone for themselves at this point.
Trump is such a bad liar. Would now would be a good time to point out that Obamacare works pretty good, thank you for nothing, motherfuckers? This is proof that Trump is lying and it should be waved in his face by every decent American in the land:
When you look at the peak number at that chart, which is 18% uninsured, that's when Obamacare kicked in. The result was a plunge in the uninsured rate. That means the goddamned law was a success. This is the chart that drives Republicans crazy. It proves they're lying about Obamacare. It proves that the law worked despite their efforts to let Red states opt out of the expansion of Medicare. The chart you see above makes it possible for every American to conclude that Trump is an inveterate liar who hasn't been acquainted with the truth for the better part of 70 years. It was called the Affordable Healthcare Act for a reason--it was designed to give Americans healthcare that wouldn't bankrupt them. It allowed millions of Americans to stop worrying about whether or not they were going lose everything they owned if they got sick and couldn't afford to pay their bills.
So, is this the discourse Trump wants? He wants to lie about this shit in front of a bunch of kids? What a disgrace of a human being. What a horrible thing to do. There really is no end to how low he's going to sink this country, is there? Today the gutter, tomorrow the sewer.
God, we are so totally fucked, aren't we? We are completely fucked if this continues.
