AARP comes out against health care bill. Their takeaway: shortening the life of Medicare, hiking costs for those who can least afford higher insurance premiums, risking seniors’ ability to live independently, increasing insurance premiums for older Americans and not doing anything to lower drug costs, and giving tax breaks to big drug companies and health insurance companies.
In other words: A real shit sandwich.
And in the news yesterday, overshadowed by the health care shit bill, it’s Muslim Ban II. Whiter, cleaner, less offensive constitutionally, doesn’t violate due process rights of visa holders so the White House figures the courts are going to okay it. We’ll see.
So anyhow, Trump accused President Obama of releasing hundreds of Al Qaeda terrorists from Gitmo who went back to their old ways again. Only problem: Most of those were released by George W. Bush. Man, that Barack Obama and his magic negro ray of time travel mojo. He traveled back into time, all the way into the Bush Administration, and using his magic negro ray of mind control, forced President Bush to release 113 prisoners who later went on to join Al Qaeda! Wow, now if Obama could only use that time travel ray to go back in time and get us a better President…
