Trump says 'there is no such thing as Obamacare anymore'

Trump says 'there is no such thing as Obamacare anymore' and 'short-term fix' in works.


President Donald Trump on Monday said there is "no such thing as Obamacare anymore" — one of a series of claims about health-care policy that he repeated in the face of either strong evidence or arguments to the contrary.

Supreme court to reexamine union fees.

Last time the SCOTUS looked at this issue they were deadlocked 4-4. Now Gorsuch is on the bench.

Remember the democratic party is not the end goal its a means to the end goal.

The democratic party is vehicle that we are using to get us to the desired destination. We have a set of ideals and policies that we stand for and use the party to come together in strength to accomplish these goals. We don't blindly follow the party because sometimes that will lead us incorrectly. We need to be true to the ideals we care about - let those be the guide and we won't fail. So if Bernie is a way of implementing the ideals - yes, I will support an "independent" to accomplish those ideals. Use the tools that are available to accomplish our goals the best we can.

The "I stand with Bernie" thread!

It seems a lot of trolls are trying to tear him down. But I'm here to say I support Bernie 100% and will not let the infiltrators take that away from this community. Who is with me?

We need to get away from executive orders (DACA)...

because what one president does the next can undo just as easily. We need to pass real legislation so the president can't just scrap it! When we controlled all 3 houses we passed ACA, but why didn't we pass DACA?! Seriously why?

So if Irma destroys Mar-a-Lago...

I'm sure tRump will make sure he gets large amounts of government assistance. Isn't that a conflict of interest?

The public is growing numb to tRump's antics...

as such tRump is having to resort to ever more outrageous behavior to elicit the same reactions. tRump craves the attention and his behavior's are starting to bore people. He is an attention addict looking for his next high. So a couple questions.... 1. what will he resort to next to feed his need for attention - where does this lead? 2. at what point will the repukes draw the line and replace tRump with Pence?

A reality star presidency - The Mika and Joe saga.

While everyone is focusing on the political distraction and ploy that is tRump's tweets he is methodically continuing his march on the freedoms of everyday Americans. The collusion with Russia is on a unbelievable scale. Immigration rights are being eroded even as we speak. Health care is being taken from us. The environment is being destroyed for the financial gains of the rich. tRump is careening us towards war with North Korea. The level of assault on the economy hasn't been seen in decades. Oh, but the Mika and Joe saga is so fun and entertaining. Don't let them frame the narrative!

Let's not forget Mika and Joe are a big reason tRump is in the oval office...

Mika and Joe are not our friends! Don't forget the past. These guys were wining and dining with Drump. There show was very friendly to tRump prior to the election. tRump is certainly showing his backstabbing ways in this story, but lets stay focused on the goal - Russia and healthcare.

We need to run more Bernie like candidates.

Progressive populism is the recipe to start winning some of these races. This was a district tRump only won by 1.5%! I'm sure a Bernie like candidate would have pulled this one over the finish line.
