Dems Push Pelosi for Single-Payer Health Care After AHCA Fails

Local public radio station KQED reported:

“I extend my hand to the president if he wants to improve the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi told a crowd of several hundred people gathered at a town hall meeting at Balboa High School in San Francisco.

The first audience question was more of a long argument for a socialized health system that some are calling “Medicare for all,” which would eliminate insurance companies.

Pelosi, unruffled by the at times unruly crowd, noted: “I supported single payer since before you were born.”

It doesn’t need to be improved. And not repealing it is not a “win” for this country, Hillary Clinton and everyone else on the left.

Sit down, let’s talk a minute.

So this year, I did the unthinkable. I actually bought insurance through the marketplace. I didn’t have a choice. I am trying to start up a small business right now, and I didn’t have insurance last year, so my taxes really hit me in the gut. I managed to avoid the tax penalty, to be fair. But I don’t know how much longer that will last. I avoided it because my state didn’t expand Medicaid. We have a new governor now, so that could change, meaning next year my taxes would be devastating.

My experience? Well, I have been out of work for a while, so my income was listed at very low rates (I have had some contract work, but nothing steady). I didn’t qualify for a subsidy. Which is fine. I don’t expect you to pay for my health coverage; I don’t want you to! And since I am starting a business now, I don’t know what that would do to my insurance anyway if the business picks up in a few months.

I got my card and my insurance was active as of March 1. So I decided to make some appointments. I needed to visit an Oby/gyn (for those who weren’t aware, yes, I am a female). It’s been a few years, and the doctor I had gone to before had retired, so I needed a new one.

Now, there was only one insurance company offering plans in my state, so I had to pick a plan from them. I have a mid-range plan. I went to their website to search for doctors who fit. Joy of joys, there were tons of Oby/gyns listed! I was overjoyed to see page after page of doctors to choose from, and I began comparing and contrasting. I chose one and was happy with my choice – a middle aged African-American woman who graduated from a really good school and has been practicing for twenty years. I was thrilled with my choice. Picking an Oby/gyn isn’t easy. We all hate them. But this woman just seemed… OK. I don’t know how to describe it, she just felt like the perfect doctor, someone I could get comfortable with, which is important to someone like me. I don’t get real cozy with doctors easily, especially doctors that have to go into my private areas for exams, because that isn’t an area I let a whole lot of people examine!

Just as I was about to hit send to make the appointment, a notice popped up saying that they were out of network. What? I thought the search I did showed me doctors who were in network only. Nope! I went back through to find another doctor because I need them to be in network; out of network was just too unaffordable, and I have some problems with my lady bits that could require a hospital stay at some point in my life, so I have to keep costs down.

Folks. I went through page after page after page of doctors. I opened up pages for 40 doctors. Only one of them accepted my insurance. I was floored. There was no choice there. I had only one option.

Curious, I began searching around in other areas for other doctors. It’s a good thing I don’t have mental health issues, because there isn’t a single psychologist or psychiatrist who takes my insurance within 100 miles of my home. There is one eye doctor. Four primary care doctors. Etc.

Basically, the government told me I have to be insured or pay a fine. So now I am paying $500 a month for insurance that very few doctors within 100 miles of my house actually takes (and my area is extremely doctor heavy). I’m really not sure this even worth my time.

I know Obamacare was designed this way to fail so an entitlement was created, but people would scream for single payer. Do you want to know how single payer would work out? Go to your DMV. That’s how it would work out. Better yet, go to your local VA! Those waiting lists never got handled. Heck, when my dad – a combat veteran from the Vietnam War – was diagnosed with cancer, he was told our local VA wasn’t set up to do cancer treatments. I had to get a damn senator involved! And suddenly – miracle of miracles – they were able to treat cancer patients on sight (and believe me, Senator Burr had to do some work to get it to that point, this was a long standing issue, to the point that I felt I needed to send Senator Burr a letter when my father passed away so he’d know)! Imagine that! Remember that story not long ago where the people took pictures of the guy laying on the floor in the VA and the other guy in the wheelchair crying in pain? That was my dad’s VA! That’s the one he used. My father was also on Medicare at the time. Do you know Medicare doesn’t cover cancer treatment? Not at all! He had to pay for chemo and radiation out of pocket and with the help of a grant my mom applied for. That, folks, is your government run healthcare.

So do I support single payer? Not on your damn life! Repeal the damn thing!

Authorities Destroy Tiny Homes Built for Homeless Because They ‘Create a Sense of Terror’

Image: Truth and Action

“Elvis Summers crowdfunded tiny homes in part through his nonprofit, Starting Human, and raised over $100,000 for what he viewed as a decent, if temporary, solution. And with the help of volunteers in the contracting and construction business, built some 40 tiny homes of wood with steel-reinforced, locking doors to provide solid shelter for struggling tent-city residents.

Summers, who experienced houselessness in his 20s, viewed the little, self-sufficient houses as a creative solution to L.A.’s colossal homeless issue — particularly as the wooden structures provided a solid home base for those seeking jobs or drug and alcohol treatment.

Summers’ project went swimmingly — individuals who’d survived in flimsy tents with little to no security felt the dignity of a structure to call home base.

That is, until the city of Los Angeles put its foot down, kicked several tiny home residents, out, and transported the structures for demolition.

“About my house, you know, you know I had a peace of mind,” Willie Hadnot toldNPR shortly after losing his home. “I could shut the door, go lay down, quiet. And that’s what I miss a whole lot, man. I don’t want to start crying.”

Suddenly evicted tiny house residents weren’t permitted to retrieve their few belongings — including medications — before police and garbage trucks hauled the homes away.”

The next time someone tells you all about how liberals are for the “little guy” and that they are the party of compassion, show them this article. This is how much your liberal politicians give a crap about the “little guy” and the poor in this country. They fight to let everyone over the boarder who can jump, while at the same time destroying what little the homeless citizens around them have. Seriously, they wouldn’t even let them retrieve their few belongings from the tiny homes before destroying them. All because… well, basically, because they don’t want the homeless around them. They are disgusted by them. And that’s sad and pathetic.

Discussion About GOP Replacement to Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House Intensifies in White House, Congress

“Speaker Ryan proved today that he does not have the best interests of the President at heart,” said another source close to the president. “He sold out the president and showed his word can be taken with a grain of salt. There is only one course of action that should be taken to move past this catastrophe and that is the swift removal of Paul Ryan from the speakership.”

I’m not going to get too excited about this, because there was a lot of talk about how necessary it was to remove John Boehner back in the day, too. But when the chance came, they voted him right back in. So no, I’m not going to hold my breath, because the Republicans are proving yet again – on a lot of things – to be a lot of talk and no action.

House GOP Leaders Pull Paul Ryan’s Obamacare 2.0 Bill Off Floor Again

CNN reported that the bill was pulled at President Donald Trump’s request despite earlier reports that the President wanted a vote—whether or not the bill had the votes to pass. Later reports indicated it was Ryan who urged Trump that the bill needed to be pulled. It was unclear as of Friday afternoon who was ultimately responsible for the decision to pull the bill.

The vote was previously scheduled for Thursday evening, but was canceled within hours of the White House assuring that there would be a vote.

And the Award for “Most Disturbing Tweet Ever” Goes To…

What the actual f%$^?!

Pardon me for not really caring about how diverse the victims of a terror attack are! They could have all been purple midgets for all I care! The point is they are all victims of another terror attack!!!! 

How does someone type that out into their Twitter editor, read it over, and decide that it is completely appropriate and should be shared with the world?

I have to be straight with you folks… I read this article yesterday and got so infuriated I didn’t post it when I saw it because I just could not digest this. What I saw in the aftermath of those attacks was this: one of our best allies just went through a terror attack. My fellow human beings lay about London injured, dying, or dead, and there wasn’t a damn thing I could do to help them. I wasn’t checking for their skin color, nation of origin, gender, or anything else. I was trying not to scream at my TV, and I was trying to keep the tears that slipped out from turning into an all out bawl fest.

This sick POS was checking their creds. I’m sure the POS that carried out this attack had an ethnic check list. Oh, no, wait, he didn’t.

Mr. Eaton, you disgust me.

Schumer: Democrats will filibuster Gorsuch nomination

Senate hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch ended Thursday on a confrontational note, with the body’s top Democrat vowing a filibuster that could complicate Gorsuch’s expected confirmation and ultimately upend the traditional approach to approving justices.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he will vote no on President Trump’s nominee and asked other Democrats to join him in blocking an up-or-down vote on Gorsuch.

Under Senate rules, it requires 60 votes to overcome such an obstacle. Republicans eager to confirm Gorsuch before their Easter recess — and before the court concludes hearing the current term of cases next month — have only 52 senators.

Republicans have vowed Gorsuch will be confirmed even if it means overhauling the way justices have long been approved. Traditionally, senators can force the Senate to muster a supermajority just to bring up the nomination of a Supreme Court justice. If that is reached, the confirmation requires a simple majority.

In a speech on the Senate floor, Schumer said: “If this nominee cannot earn 60 votes — a bar met by each of President Obama’s nominees and George Bush’s last two nominees — the answer isn’t to change the rules. It’s to change the nominee.”

And their only real reason is because they are ticked off that Hillary isn’t picking the Supreme Court justice. Oh, and he believes in following the Constitution as it was written. God forbid.

We’re beyond the point where these people need to grow up. Now they need to be removed. What are they going to do, obstruct for four years?
