    Boy, that's going to go over well. Did Trump run on that? If he didn't, it doesn't matter, it's clearly what America voted for.

    Between the healthcare, the lack of education, and the roll back of environmental policies- a lot of these people are just going to go away.

    I have a default setting of assuming they believe about 50% of what they're saying. The rest is fan service.

    But not before they spawn, particularly since they start in their early-to-mid-teens.

    Otherwise the problem would be its own solution.

    I'd say it's all fan service. Half of it they realize they're lying ("your jobs are coming back"). Half of it they've convinced themselves is true, even though it isn't ("cutting taxes on the wealthy will help the middle class").

    If Pence and Ryan believe it then they're dumb. And I don't think they're dumb. I think their top drawer snake oil salesman who only care about themselves.

    Pence is a true believer...ask anyone from Indiana. Ryan has never wavered...

    If they werent true believers they would be pivoting.

    ??

    They do believe what they are dolling out. The message hasn't changed for a decade now.

    BTW, one question I have- when your insurance lapses, and you pay the $300 re-enrollment penalty- who gets it?

    IF the insurance company does, then they have major incentives to make sure people don't renew their insurance so that they can get an extra $300 out of their customers.

    So, the American Hospital Association doesn't like the proposed law. Not a fan of the new uninsured ER coming, maybe. So axing that'll be next when they rewrite it

    Pence is dumb. Ryan's not dumb, he just has dumb beliefs, so presumably whoever programmed those in was dumb.

    I work for a very large company, part of which is one of the largest health insurers in the US. I now get to sit on a committee that will be trying to figure out what to do regarding a potential new ACA.
    Tempering my own feelings will be interesting as we discuss this at work.

    The old ACA, the new ACA, both are about globalist control and destroying the market into a single payer system.
