    A 45 year coworker wasn’t going to get insurance because of the expense and because our sociopath Trump wannabe boss is providing the worst insurance at the worst cost. I told her, she was one accident away from bankruptcy. Told her what my simple kidney stone surgery cost without the surgeon’s bill: $37,000. So she signed up the last day of open enrollment. Less than a week ago.

    She had some hip problems, figured it was from over-exercising. She found out she has torn cartilage and will need surgery.

    ACA is about not being penalized for pre-existing conditions. That those GOP psychopaths gleefully want to destroy it should make them unfit to pick up trash off the streets, much less run government.

          🙂 Email might be better since I’m unable to type fast enough while texting and answers tend to overlap. Are you going to church in the morning? I’m not, and I’m not sure yet what I’ll be doing with the evening. Since it’s Christmas Eve, recent tradition suggests heading off to the cousins for an overnighter, but the truth is I’m not in the ‘spirit of travel’.

            Yes, I’ll go to church so let’s try for around 2p my time/5p your time unless you send me an email with an alternate time.
            Until Sunday…💕

      Because Trump is nothing but a narcissistic, vengeful autocrat. He’s acting exactly as you would expect an egomaniac bigot to behave. He shouldn’t be anywhere near the White House.

    I am usually Never a Fan of The Royal Family.
    But Prince Henry, aka Prince Harry & Ms Meghan Markle are indeed too sweet, humble and kind…..Good looking too. I am cheering & RTing every time I see them. I like them. I wish them all the Goodness Life has to offer.
    One of my Relatives married a Brit…..4yrs ago.

      “The biggest tax heist” would be a better description of how Republicans plan to transfer resources from the poor and working class to mega wealthy individuals and corporations. Regular, hard working Americans are about to be robbed.

      It’s hard to believe at this stage that some are still wondering whether the GOP Congress will impeach.

      Yesterday’s gross display of genuflection should show everyone that there’s no offense committed by Trump that they won’t ignore.

      They need to go down with him.

        I never for ONE minute thought the GOP would impeach DOTARD because they STILL need him to destroy healthcare, safety nets, SS, Medicare/Medicaid, voter suppression of DEMS, and our courts. In other words they need him to destroy America because ALL of the GOP are compromised by Russia.

    just thought that we could send a word of thanks to Mr. Andy Slavitt;


    …. he did a great service at the heard of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMMS) and run Obamacare under PBO;


    ….when his official time of government service was over, he then chose to get into the fight to save Obamacare;


    …. he is one of the people I have come to know, greatly respect and admire from afar ;


    I trust his information as credible and not exaggerated;


    … he loves to educate about the consequence of health policy on us all … he is kind, caring for the most vulnerable, very knowledgeable. and steady;

    … he seems to share the traits of his boss, PBO;

    … yes, PBO attracted the best in personal ethics, work ethic, heart and brains and they keep spreading it throughout the world in service, organizing and advocacy;

    Most of the countries that voted with the US are members of the Compact of Free Association (COFA), says Daniel Kliman, a Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security, “which would explain their votes”.

    COFA is a deal struck between the US and several South Pacific islands, including Palau, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands. It was signed into US law in 1986.

    Under the agreement, the islands get US economic help, defence guarantees and a few other benefits.

    In return, the US gets military operating rights in those countries, Mr Kliman says.

    So what is wrong with Orrin Hatch? This man can not believe what he said about Trump at their victory gathering when they were celebrating their tax cut for the millionaires and billionaires. Trump being the greatest President ever, Either Hatch is sick in the head or I think they learn that to get what you want all you need to do is praise Trump.From Trump to the GOP Senators to the GOP House members they are lying bigots who care only for the rich.

      DF, I kid you not I had this exact conversation with a coworker on Facebook just yesterday morning. He wrote a Facebook post thanking Trump for the tax bill. My reply to him was something along the lines of “well then you won’t have to worry about paying taxes on the millions of dollars you get from a long lost relative.” His reply to me was, wait for it, “rich people should not have to pay taxes on money they’ll inherit.” This fucking guy receives a goddamn paycheck every two fucking weeks just like me and his concern isn’t for the working class but for a bunch of fucking millionaires. I was so goddamn pissed I just told the guy Merry Christmas and good luck. I mean what the fuck, next thing you these guys will be lighting themselves on fire like that famous photo from Vietnam of the monk lighting himself on fire to protest the war. But these fuckers will be lighting themselves on fire just to show their loyalty to Trump.

        Excellent example of the success of Republican brainwashing. They’re not saying that the middle class gets a tax break; they endorse and defend tax breaks for the rich. Because…. Trump?? Absolutely insane.

      She makes a really good point that I sure hadn’t considered- that they are afraid of him- as to why they “prostrate themselves to him”. My thinking is always that they’re just soulless, greedy pr*cks. But fear is a huge motivator for some folks.
