Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum asked President Donald J. Trump how he would protect people with pre-existing conditions, which are guaranteed under the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).

Sure, I’ll protect you. Trust me. Would I lie to you?

Here is her question:

“Because the issue of pre-existing conditions, you say you’re going to protect them.

But your administration is also fighting Obamacare in the courts.

So how do you promise you’re going to protect them based on that?”

Here is Trump’s answer:

“That’s what I said.  We want to terminate Obamacare because it’s bad.  Look, we’re running it really well, but we know it’s defective.  It’s very defective.  We got rid of the worst part.  And that was a very important thing.  You know getting rid of the individual mandate was a very important thing.

“But we want to get something — if we can get the House, you’ll have the best healthcare and health insurance anywhere on the planet.  But we have to get the House back.

“Now, that means we have to hold the Senate.  We have to get the House.  We have to, obviously, keep the White House.  But, what we’re doing is managing it really well.

“Now, it’s a case; it’s called Texas vs. — you understand — it’s Texas who is suing.  They want to terminate it.  But everybody there is also saying, and everybody — we have our great senator from Pennsylvania. 

“Thank you very much, Pat, for being here.  And Pat Toomey.

“And — but, very important — and our — by the way, our great congressmen, I have to say, they were warriors.  Right?   Real warriors, in terms of the fake impeachment.  I will tell you that. 

“But, so Texas is trying — and it’s Texas and many states — they’re trying to terminate, but they want to put something that’s much better.  They’re terminating it to put much better.  And they’ve all pledged that preexisting conditions, 100 percent taken care of.”

In summary, Trump cares about one thing: Keeping himself in power.

As for health care and pre-existing conditions, he doesn’t have a clue. It’s all a con job to fool the suckers. He is such an obvious charlatan, his followers must be the most easily duped people in human history.

Meanwhile, Trump and the Republicans have devoted years — YEARS (!) — to trying to get rid of Obamacare, and in all those years, despite repeated Trump promises, they never have come up with a plan that covers people with pre-existing conditions.

Never.

So why would they be able to, or even want to, come up with a plan, now?

This is what Trump additionally has said:

“I was the person who saved Pre-Existing Conditions in your Healthcare, you have it now, while at the same time winning the fight to rid you of the expensive, unfair and very unpopular Individual Mandate…..

“and, if Republicans win in court and take back the House of Representatives, your healthcare, that I have now brought to the best place in many years, will become the best ever, by far. I will always protect your Pre-Existing Conditions, the Dems will not!”

And while all that double-talk was spewing from Trump’s mouth, his bootlickers were in full throat. Here is what they had to say about Chairman Kim’s . . . uh, President Trump’s . . .  handling of another medical emergency, the VIRUS:

Mike Pence:
“This team has been, at your direction, Mr. President, meeting every day since it was established.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Alexander Azar:
“Thank you, Mr. President, for gathering your public health experts here today and for your strong leadership in keeping America safe. Because of this hard work and the president’s leadership, the immediate risk to the American public has been and continues to be low.

The president’s early and decisive actions, including travel restrictions, have succeeded in buying us incredibly valuable time. … The president’s actions taken with the strong support of his scientific advisors have proven to be appropriate, wise, and well-calibrated to the situation.”

Pence:
“You know, Mr. President, you said from early on that we were going to have a whole-of-government approach. But the truth is, as evidenced by all these great industry leaders, it’s really a whole-of-America approach.”

Trump:
“Right.”

Pence:
“And the American people deserve to know that, according to all of our experts, the risk to the average American of contracting the coronavirus remains low. And that’s largely owing to your decision, Mr. President, to suspend all travel from China into the United States and to quarantine all Americans that are returning. … We’re grateful for that, Mr. President.”

(Kiss) (Kiss) (Kiss)(Kiss) (Kiss) (Kiss)

Trump:
“Be sure to kiss both cheeks, boys.”

OK, that last one isn’t true, so far as we know.

Here’s what Trump really said:

Trump:
(While at the Centers for Disease Control). “Every one of these doctors said, How do you know so much about this? Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

Also, the sun came up this morning. Trump took credit for that, while both Pence and Azar complimented him for the beauty of the sky.

And this is what is running your healthcare: An incompetent and his sycophants.

If you get sick, in this greatest nation on earth, good luck paying for your medical services.

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.
