The US....like EVERY OTHER
western country.....will eventually go to a universal healthcare system. I spent 10 years in healthcare....its broken, and the incentives and disincentives that work in most businesses.....do NOT
work in healthcare, where the incentives SHOULD BE TO KEEP YOU OUT OF THE HOSPITAL AND GET PEOPLE HEALTHIER SO THEY DON'T NEED TO GO INTO THE HOSPITAL IN THE FIRST PLACE.
I could speak for months on this...but I won't, except to say that DonnieCare may be the straw that broke the camels back. And maybe WITHIN
5 years..we can move towards universal healthcare.
Donnie's budget is probably going to gain him as much strength in the polls as outlawing chocolate.
Folks are NOT
going to like his budget.
By the way.....I heard Mika Brzezinski this morning refer to "President Bannon and Donald Trump"
I about fell out of my chair. Yes....the movement in the press continues.
The daily press conference yesterday was a "tad" contentious. That's what happens when "Spicey"
has to continually run out and lie for Donnie. And yes....Donnie has now doubled down on his lies. There is NO TELLING A SOCIOPATH HE IS LYING.
He has NO IDEA
where the truth is.
This week will certainly jar several more Republicans to realize that "Houston.....we have a problem." I wonder when the banter in the press will move to "is he mentally ill"? It IS
heading there. And Donnie will likely be the one to move that thought process along as he continues to implode and make bad decisions.
Wait till the headlines in home newspapers read: "Trump golf weekends rather than meals on wheels." Think that will do his polls any good? Me neither.....
What about this: "State Dept spending cut more than 30% because we're fighting less wars......defense spending incrased more than 10% because.....just in case?"So let's take a step back and look where we are:1) Russian investigations
continue to go forward.....and we are LIKELY
to be getting more news in the coming 4 days....and from the look of Diane Feinstein and Chuck Grassley....it VERY LIKELY
will "move the needle".https://www.rawstory.com/2017/03/senate-intel-leaders-feinstein-and-grassley-grim-and-silent-after-trump-russia-briefings-with-comey/
the look of....."gee, you have just won the lottery
." 2) DonnieCare:
Not exactly getting 5 stars from the critics. Some of his base is NOT
going to be thrilled.....just like a lot of other people in rural America.3) Budget:
going to produce good headlines for Donnie. His budget is likely to lose him more ground in the polls.
So Donnie has at least 3 things going AGAINST HIM
. Four...if you count all the golfing he continues to do. He has NO CLUE
how bad that looks.
I'll be looking for polls to be into the mid 30's by the end of next week.....which would be an all-time low for Donnie (38 is the lowest he has been so far).
I hope Donnie is going to enjoy his golfing this weekend.....because he has a LONG LONELY ROAD AHEAD OF HIM.....
Maybe he will be comforted to find out that Mike Pence might be joining him. That lying VP is also going to be in hot water.....
It is clear to me that President Bannon and Donnie have some seriously bad times ahead.....as do many in his inner circle. Again....keep your eyes peeled on Mattis in coming months. He is important because he is the ONE GROWNUP
in the room. If he were to get into a "head to head" battle with Trump over things.......he could jettison and THAT
would push the panic button for many Republicans in both the Senate and the House. We're not close to that yet....but that is a VERY REAL POSSIBILITY
down the road.
