UPDATE: I’m really hoping that The New York Times isn’t pulling one of its usual Fake News stunts with this story – McCain might actually die (or be forced to finally resign). If so, there will be a party, there will be drinking, and there will be confetti.
Overall, I can’t honestly see the United States solving the healthcare problem in the foreseeable future due to the fact that with current trends holding, we have no chance at making anything work properly.
A total free market – as pushed by many Cuckservatives – would fail because of greed-filled pure Capitalists (a large number of whom are Jews), and their desire to push profits at the expense of all else – they would rather see a White man, woman, or child die in the gutter than see their margins drop by one-tenth of a percent.
A middle of the road system as pushed by Trump (Obamacare also transformed into such a thing) would fail once the insurance companies figured out that they could recoup their losses from the semi-socialized areas of the plan by gouging those unable to qualify for subsidies (notice how Barry’s idea has led to premiums jumping 200-400% in some states).
And a pure single-payer system (Socialism) would fail in the current American nation due to the sheer numbers of non-Whites, as well as because of oxygen bandits among the White Race – obese slobs and junkies, I’m talking to y’all.
So at the end of the day, this whole healthcare drive is a total waste of political capital, and will remain so until more pressing issues are solved.
Not that any of this matters to those in Congress, as they and their families have nothing to worry about due to massive wealth and coverage guaranteed by the taxpayer (this coverage is also exempt from current and proposed insurance rules and regulations).
Sen. John McCain’s absence from the Senate as he recovers from surgery for a blood clot has led the GOP leadership to postpone consideration of health care legislation already on the brink.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Saturday night he was deferring action on the measure as McCain recovers at his home in Arizona. Surgeons in Phoenix removed a blood clot from above McCain’s left eye on Friday. The 80-year-old Senate veteran was advised by doctors to remain in Arizona next week, his office said.
“While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act,” McConnell said in a statement.
A close vote had already been predicted for the GOP health care bill, with all Democrats and independents coming out against it and some Republicans opposed or undecided. With the GOP holding a 52-48 majority, they can afford to lose only two Republicans. Vice President Mike Pence would break a tie for final passage.
They’ll likely fail, as they’re already missing two key Republicans needed to get the nightmare bill passed – kind of funny when you think about how Crazy Rand Paul is now the guy trying to keep the GOP from committing hara-kiri.
McCain is a three-time survivor of melanoma. Records of his medical exams released in 2008 when he was the GOP candidate for president showed that he has had precancerous skin lesions removed and had an early stage squamous cell carcinoma, an easily cured skin cancer, removed.
Just be proud that whenever you get slammed with taxes, White Man, at least it’s going to a good place – keeping John McCain alive for another few years while you struggle to afford doctor’s visits for your children.
