Seven years of planning, and they don't want to touch the result.

Maybe the solution is to just require them to participate. Then the healthcare system would be fixed very quickly.


You mean, like they did on the original OdumboCare?

I think of him as a joke, a clown running for president as mentioned in a magazine. I'm completely baffled as to why one would give this sort of speech the day you announce your plan to run for presidency. He just lost that chance that very same day. What a fool.


I am very supportive of Trump and his immigration policies. As for his policies towards the banking and financial sector, we are starting to see positive changes early on with a lot more necessary work.

He is a mess and an embarrassment to the country. I understand wanting change, but Donald fans made a bad decision by having this guy be their representative.

From another person and in another situation, it could appear to be a carefully planned move: Have someone credible but with no official voice say you're about to do something and then look at the reaction. Discredit the speaker if it's not popular. That said, I don't see how a careful planner could possibly think it would be a popular move.

Or use it as a way to appear less vindictive...a bit weird to couple with asking your cabinet to swear an oath to you. Not likely.

Or the guy could have talked about it to generate a negative buzz to dissuade Trump...seriously considering the move...from doing it. More likely. Talking to Trump in a way that will get him to at least listen, if not likely to change his mind.

Hillary would been just as hilariously bad, but potentially much more dangerous due to being in the "Politico" club. No thanks.

And yes, I'm admitting things haven't been good for DT at all. He's just not part of the club and likely never will be.

I'm on a long road trip, and I have to say that it's really driving home how outdated the Senate and electoral college are. There are so many states that are nearly empty yet wield immense per-capita power.

You can't deny someone the vote because of their race, sex, or wealth. But it's still okay to reduce the value of their vote by 95% based on where they live.

Because giving the blue states even more power is a good idea. You will see a civil war if that happens.

I think we'd see a government that more accurately reflects the will of the people.
