Nov 15 cgd commented on A Requiem for Obamacare.
Golob is wrong about the politics. He says Democrats had control of the government and they failed to pass the public option because of an intra-party fight, but Republicans and Independent Senator Lieberman promised to filibuster it, and the Democrats only had 58 Senators plus Sanders. Without a single Republican's or Lieberman's support, there was no way to get 60 votes to break the Republican-and-Lieberman filibuster, even if the Democrats had rounded up every single red-state Democratic Senator.

Want to prevent more President Trumps? The Stranger and the media will have to do a better job of reporting the facts.

@6 The Republicans want to replace Medicare with private insurance. They just re-elected Ryan Speaker of the House. That's his plan.

@40 Here's your link of Donald Trump being racist:

I have a Mexican judge. He’s of Mexican heritage. He should have recused himself, not only for that, for other things.


Here's a video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEad6xYf…

Here's Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan calling those comments racist:

“I disavow these comments,” Ryan said. “Claiming a person can’t do the job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment. I think that should be absolutely disavowed. It’s absolutely unacceptable.”

Republican Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell also criticized Trump:


"In addition to that, it’s time to quit attacking various people you competed with or various minority groups in the country and get on message," McConnell said.

@25

“He doesn’t like blacks. He doesn’t like Hispanics. He doesn’t like disabled people,” said Jennifer Shanklin-Hawkins, who, like roughly half the Carrier factory workers, is African-American. “He’s not presidential material. But my husband and I weren’t mad or upset when he won. I know blacks who voted for him, and I want to give him a chance.”

@22 They're not all racists, but many are suckers who've been conned by Trump, and they threw out of government the wrong party. We should be raising the minimum wage, funding education for the decent-paying jobs of tomorrow, and stopping billionaires like Trump from paying $0 in federal income taxes, but that's the last thing the all-Republican government we'll have for the next two years will do.

Donald Trump was, for much of his life, a registered Democrat and has until recently been pro gay marriage


Wrong. Trump told the Advocate (Feb 15, 2000, page 24):


I think the institution of marriage should be between a man and a woman

Donald Trump lives in a 3-storey penthouse and pays $0 in federal income taxes. He and the Republicans want to cut taxes on the rich.

This first quote is bullshit. The last paragaph hasn't happened, and of course it's the Republicans who've been attacking the middle and lower classes, and are going to continue to lie and cut taxes for the wealthy. But the media, including the Stranger, have a hard time telling that simple truth. Look in the fucking mirror.

ABC news:

These emails were not sent by Hillary Clinton, and the FBI has no evidence of wrongdoing by her, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

Seemed like a bombshell? Based on what? Why doesn't the Stranger just sell out to Rupert Murdoch already. And are you ever going to correct the headline and story by Ana Sofia Knauf?
