ACA repeal---TAX CUT for the wealthy

If this isn't BAD enough Rand Paul is pissed because there is still some Obama stuff left in. Hope you DIE tomorrow Rand.

But wait Rand,all your RICH buddies get a tax CUT when this passes. Feel better NOW??


"Higher-income Americans could pay fewer taxes, get more tax benefits. The legislation would eliminate two taxes that Obamacare levied on the wealthy to help pay for the law. Nearly everyone in the Top 1%, who earn more than $774,000 a year, would enjoy a hefty tax cut, averaging $33,000, according to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center. Those in the Top 0.1% would get an average tax cut of about $197,000."

1. But... But... our President says we'll ALL be covered! And we know...

... he always tells the truth!

Well, that was Candidate Trumpy. Not Prez Trumpy. Prez Trumpy doesn't care what he signs. And when the GOP sends him a health care bill to sign, Trumpy will be his true self: lazy and ambivalent about anything that won't tarnish his brand. So he'll sign the revised Death Bill and then sell it to his Fanboys, who will LOVE the fact that Trumpy is momentarily paying attention to THEM. (And remember what Trumpy says: Any attention is good attention.) That will be all that counts. So he'll have the support of about 25-30% of the population by redefining/reframing the poison and making it look like a wave of Golden Chariots pouring over the ridge.

If anything, Trumpy knows how to market. And his Fanboys will lick his privates for a little pat on the head.

3. And a direct hit on Medicare, since the ACA contained taxes on the rich meant to shore up Medicare.
