People continue to argue that the President of the United States is one man, and one man can not single handedly destroy a nation. I would counter that Trump is one fat man and a half, and he’s doing a bang up job of it.
Don’t get me wrong, I do not mean to insult the President of the United States Virgin Islands.
“I met with the President of the Virgin Islands. The Virgin Islands and the President of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people, they suffered gravely and we’re be there, we’re going to be there, we have really, it is not even a question of a choice.” ~Donald J Trump, F***ing Idiot of the United States
Donald Trump, in his bigly geniosity (if he can make up words so can I), claims to have conversed with the “the President of the United States Virgin Islands.” USVI is a US territory, (hence the US part of the abbreviation), they have no president worthy of mention—Trump.
I think he might have had more success speaking to the King Regent of the USVI…or perhaps Virginia, the Virgin God of USVI, who wears a gold cape and rules from the cumulus cloud in the sky above Saint Thomas.
Back to the source of my anger this morning—
By signing the presidential order to end subsidies for the Affordable Care Act, Trump has essentially opened the floodgates that had contained what individuals can be charged for healthcare. Dump’s determination to destroy ACA, fueled by a racist goal to erase President Obama’s entire legacy, without concern for cost, will result in much higher insurance premiums for the middle class.
The subsidies he has cut paid the difference for low income Americans who are unable meet insurance costs. Now those costs will be disbursed among those who do pay for insurance, either through ACA or through company provided insurance plans. The result will render millions more Americans unable to afford the new premiums. They will end up foregoing medication and treatment all together.
Insurance premiums have already increased substantially for 2018 in anticipation of Trump’s shenanigans. I’m angry, and you should be too, because as always it will be the middle class who have been shat on.
Trump may claim this move will save tax payers billions. If he cared about tax dollars he’d put an end to his family and cabinet’s excessive private jet travel habits and his weekly golf excursions…to check on his properties. Trump’s administration is burning through more tax payer dollars than it would take to continue funding ACA.
Bloomberg reports estimate rather than saving tax payer dollars, this executive order will cost tax payers $200 Billion over the next decade.
Donald Trump’s campaign trail rhetoric that “Obama care is failing” was not true at the time, but he is single handedly make sure it fails now.
This will be Trump’s legacy, destroying the American healthcare system without any intention to rebuild it. Unless Congress acts on the 25th Amendment (remove him based on his insanity), or moves forward with impeachment proceedings soon, Trump will be the end of the GOP (good riddance), and the mass murderer of millions of Americans who are denied healthcare.
