Share

As the GOP prepares to vote for the 71st time (seriously) to repeal the Affordable Care Act, we see no single consistent vision for how to cover more people for less money. Latest plan is to dump the problem off on the states.

#TeleprompterTrump vs #UnscriptedTrump

Share

Trump’s friends/defenders… like Jerry Falwell Jr on “Meet the Press” yesterday… only see “#TeleprompterTrump”… the Trump that has his comments carefully written out for him by a professional speech-writer that tends to say the […]

Trump is the Living Embodiment of Plato’s ‘Republic’
