Who’s Running This Circus?
I’m beginning to feel we’re living in a three ring circus. One ring is cruel to animals, another testing the limits of human flexibility and, of course, the ring full of clowns.
This is not Barnum and Bailey, it’s our government. Talk about ‘SAD’.
The orange clown only cares about ‘winning’ but, he hasn’t been doing it much lately. When plan A goes down the toilet let’s try plan B and, whatever you do, don’t put my name on it!
I don’t know about you but, when I first heard of ‘The Freedom Caucus’, I thought they were the ones leaning slightly left. HA! They are anything but. I think the name refers to their want to be free of citizens who may need some help from the government.
They want to pare down this bare bones healthcare bill to the point of it being, essentially, non-existent. This from the Goldman-Sachs crowd who, like the orange clown, never had to worry about paying for healthcare in their lives. I do wish they’d given some consideration to seeking mental health care, though.
The moderate R’s are gaining some respect from their constituents for having the sense to listen to those they represent and vote against this disastrous bill.
I have to say, our Congressman, Frank LoBiondo, has not only listened to us, he actually responds to us on Facebook and e-mail. He is a Republican and we may not agree on much but, he is paying attention. I respect that.
It amuses me, slightly, that Ryan doesn’t want his name on this bill and neither does anyone in the White House. It’s like they know it’s poison and will haunt them forever. What a legacy!
In the meantime, if they had simply tweaked the ACA instead of being hell bent on erasing it and treating it like a scorched earth policy because, *Obama*, we’d be on the right track. One-third of the people who voted for the orange clown did not realize the ACA and Obamacare are the same thing anyway!
I hope they all go down in 2018. That’s what is causing the panic you know, the ones who will be up for re-election don’t want anything to do with this issue. They sat on the sidelines demeaning Obamacare and wasted seven years doing nothing to come up with a workable replacement but, now they’re in the corner.
After all, as our ‘fearful leader’ asked, “Who knew health care could be this complicated?” Apparently, everyone but him and the R’s in congress.
After years of governing by obstruction, they have the nerve to expect everything they throw out there to be accepted ASAP and voted into law no questions asked. Payback is a bitch!
More importantly, responsible healthcare is a necessity. If they can’t find common ground and work for the people, not the donors who bought them, their constituents who believed their rhetoric about working for the common good, they need to be FIRED!
As 2018 looms we will see if they’ve learned anything.
Tell me how you feel about this in the comments.
