Trump is Evil. There is no other way of saying it. He promised not hurt his constituents during the campaign but then proceed to push for a health care bill that he himself described as “mean”. http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/25/politics/donald-trump-confirms-mean-health-care/index.html. Trump complained to Fox News that Obama had stolen his phrase when he wrote, “Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family — this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.” (I really miss Obama’s ability to speak correctly.) So Trump even bragged about using the word mean, but then proceeded to strong-arm GOP members of the house to vote for a ‘mean’ bill that would throw many millions of people off healthcare. Trump pushed a bill that he knew would kill thousands of people who would die without healthcare and he did it with no sense of responsibility.
The United States is known for its poor dental health care coverage. So thousands of people are crossing the border into a town called “Molar City” Los Algodones in Mexico to get dental care. There are 600 dentists in an area with 6000 people. According to Mayor Camacho, Molar City receives 6000 or more Americans and Canadians who come to get dental care every day during the winter’s mild weather.
According to the National Association of Dental Plans, “114 million Americans don’t have dental insurance, including 46.3 million people aged 65 or older. And for those who do, the costs of dental work can still be out of reach.” https://www.buzzfeed.com/johnstanton/americans-going-to-dentists-in-molar-city-mexico?utm_term=.fkOPQx2VX#.em8a6m0NA
How about drugs? U.S. pharmaceutical corporations price urgently needed drugs out of the ability of most people to pay. Many lawmakers around the country have tried to come to grips with the price of drugs, but have failed miserably. As long as Americans are held hostage by the pharmaceutical companies there is no competition and drugs will continue to be sky-high for U.S. citizens. If we were allowed to order drugs from Canada, prices would come down in the U.S. But competition is the last thing that Republicans want. http://www.latimes.com/opinion/editorials/la-ed-prescription-drug-prices-transparency-20170724-story.html
We have Ryan, McConnell and Pence as the main hawkers for Trump’s plans. They know there is evil but do nothing to stop that growing evil from destroying the United States government. And those three shameless people let our evil president cover his butt and allow him to stay out of trouble.
Starting now we must all do everything that we can to elect people who actually care about preserving what is good about this country. We must work at the city and state levels just as the Republicans did years ago. We must take back the Senate so that Trump cannot put another extremist on the Supreme Court. But we must also put pressure on the Democrats in control so that they don’t blow this tremendous opportunity.
So let’s pull up our sleeves and get started. Write, call, march.
