Wealthy Win Round One on Repealing and Replacing Obamacare But The Fight Isn't Over

Good Day World!

The wealthy win again under the Trump regime. 

The process to repeal and replace Obamacare has begun with a narrow win to send it to the Senate.

It's been commonplace thus far under our Liar-In-Chief, who has been busy signing executive orders that are leaving his billionaire pals salivating.

We had a billionaire coup d’etat when Chump assumed power with the help of the Russians.

One example of the damage he's done with his executive orders is approving the Keystone XL pipeline. Do you know who really benefits by bringing oil down from Canada?

Certainly not you the consumer. Try the multi-billionaire Koch brothers.

They own the Koch Industries refinery in Corpus Christi, which is the main beneficiary of that oil coming down from Canada, because the Koch refinery cannot handle the cleaner oil that comes out of Texas.

Then there's Dump's revival of Voodoo economics. 

That is, if you cut taxes on the rich, they’ll get so excited and go into so much busy economic activity, that the economy will grow and your tax revenues will actually rise. So cut taxes, collect more taxes.

It is a miracle that exists in fevered brains harkening back to Reaganomics. In the real world when the scheme unfolds the rich get richer...and the poor get poorer.

It looks like Round Two will play out sometime in June. Trump's minions will be trying to shove the bill thru in any way possible.

Even if it means changing a law to do it. They've already demonstrated that nuclear options are on the table when they managed to get Gorsch confirmed.

The fight is far from over however. 

As more facts about the bill come out the more likely it'll fail in the Senate. Playing politics (for some hollow victory) with Americans healthcare is par for the course coming from the wealthy and their corporations.

It is the Era of Trump, and His Billionaire Boys Club. Long live greed.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
