"If he had known how McCain would have torpedoed the ObamaCare rescue effort, or how the Democrats would try to blame us for the sky high costs, Trump probably would have left it alone. I wish he would have. But - no good deed goes unpunished."

I know I am not the only one who has noticed this. Frankly, I would be amazed if ANYONE on the Red Team has not. What is it? Health care. I'm sorry - wrong term. ObamaCare. That is what healthcare is today. Yes, even after almost two years of a Trump Presidency, we still are saddled with ObamaCare - and the sky high costs which come with it.
Here is the best part. The part which takes gonads the size of Texas. The Democrats are running ads on how un-affordable healthcare is. Like it is our fault or something. We tried, we really tried, try to fix this thing. The Republicans have had numerous bills brought forth while Obama was President. Bills to kill ObamaCare. The only things which got killed in the process, were the bills.
Then the best chance we had to kill ObamaCare, was right after Trump became President. It was nip and tuck, but we could do it. Heck, we had the House, the Senate, and the White House. PLUS - this was a promise we made to the American people.
The "Death to ObamaCare" Bill passed the House - and then it was on to the Senate. Once it passed the Senate, Trump was ready to sign it. His pen was locked and loaded. Then our last Republican, came up to vote. The Senior Senator from Arizona. The Senator who could have brought this very important bill over the finish line. To put an end to this nightmare, for once and for all. And then, our winning vote, our Republican Senator who not that long ago ran for President against Obama, turned out to be the losing vote. The Senior Senator from Arizona put "thumbs down" on the bill. So, ObamaCare remains the law of the land.
John Adams said "Facts are stubborn things", so I will not bore you with any more facts. ObamaCare was 100% Democrat owned, and now the Democrats are trying to tar and feather the Republicans for the sky high cost of healthcare. It is kind of like blaming the United States for starting World War II.
Did I tell you yet what the solutions are to healthcare? The ones the Democrats have put forward? Euro style single payer. Some call it "Medicare for all". Others call it the $30T money trap. I call it VA for all. Those who have lived it, call it rationing for all.
Margaret Sanger would have loved it. Abort babies which are not up to snuff, nor wanted. Then euthanize old folks who have lived long enough. Heck, everyone knows that most of our medical costs come from dealing with the old folks. Get rid of them. With rationed care, once the old get sick, give them some happy pills, then put them someplace nice to die.
Donald Trump had it right as soon as he became President. He said, "Part of me wants to leave ObamaCare alone. We own 0% of it, and the Democrats own 100% of it. But that would not be fair to the people suffering under the costs of it."
If he had known how McCain would have torpedoed the ObamaCare rescue effort, or how the Democrats would try to blame us for the sky high costs, Trump probably would have left it alone. I wish he would have. But - no good deed goes unpunished.
