Watch Trump Admit That He Deliberately Hid the GOP Tax Scam’s Sabotage of ObamaCare

It took nearly a year after the election of Donald Trump for the Republican controlled Congress to pass a significant piece of legislation. And the bill they managed to shove down America’s throat is literally the most unpopular bill in thirty years. The GOP Tax Scam will give the rich a massive tax cut paid for by millions of average Americans. And it will still balloon the debt by as much as two trillion dollars.

Included in the legislation is a provision that has been mostly kept under wraps. The bill eliminates the individual mandate language of the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) that requires people to either get health insurance or pay a fee. The purpose of this requirement is to incentivize younger, healthier people to participate in the program in order to keep premiums down for everybody, as well as to be certain they were covered in the event of a medical necessity.

Well, now we have proof that the effort to repeal the individual mandate was deliberately hidden in order to deceive the American people. And that proof came straight out of the mouth of the Deceiver-in-Chief, Donald Trump. At the cabinet meeting held Wednesday morning to gloat about the bill’s passage, Trump raised the issue of ObamaCare and how this the bill addressed it:

“When the individual mandate is being repealed, that means ObamaCare is being repealed. […] We have essentially repealed ObamaCare. And we’ll come up with something that will be much better. Whether it’s block grants or whether it’s taking what we have and doing something terrific. But ObamaCare has been repealed in this bill.”

First of all, the repeal of the individual mandate does not repeal ObamaCare. To be sure, it is a serious blow that will cause premiums to go up for everybody. And apparently Trump thinks that’s worth bragging about. Yet he can’t articulate how he would replace ObamaCare, other than to lamely proclaim some mysterious “terrific” new program. It’s typical of his ignorant and childish rhetoric that employs vague language and superlatives that say literally nothing at all.

But that wasn’t even the worst part of his brief comments. He went on to make a surprising confession about the intentional swindle he incorporated into this initiative (video below):

“We didn’t want to bring it up. I tell people specifically be quiet with the fake news media because I don’t want them talking too much about it. Cause I didn’t know how people would…but now that it’s approved I can say the individual mandate on healthcare, where you had to pay not to have insurance – think of that one, you pay not to have insurance. The individual mandate has been repealed.”

Have you ever heard a president, or any national leader, say out loud that they purposefully withheld information from the public in order to fool them into supporting a dishonestly presented bill? Trump’s admission explicitly notes that he directed his administration to suppress this news by concealing it from the media. That’s an overt acknowledgement of fraud.

Trump must not be allowed to get away with this. Come November 2018 he needs to be rebuked by voters returning control of Congress to the Democrats who can then proceed with impeachment hearings. Unless, that is, special counsel Robert Mueller comes to America’s rescue before then.

  1. THIS is why this narcissistic, egotistical, pathological lying, bigot in chief MUST be removed from office. Not just because of the dealings with Russia and the illegal acts against the country he falsely swore to serve. It’s the fact that since he MUST be the center of attention and since his alleged brain connects directly to his mouth without any evidence that it passed through any degree of intelligence beforehand, he will say ANYTHING. Admit to crimes, admit he’s a moron, admit he is a failure in everything he ever tried, admit he is quite willing to rape a twelve year old, admit he hates the guys he supports five seconds after saying he supports them one hundred percent, ANYTHING. If it fits the situation — and even when it doesn’t — and especially if it piques his tiny little mind, he will say it.

    Then, it’s the “fake news” media lying when they quote him exactly.

    But even when this affects his most worshipful supporters, they STILL won’t turn against him! What, what, does he have to say and do to make them abandon this creature?!

    Donald Trump has now done practically EVERYTHING the FucksPods and TrumpBots accused Obama of doing, and they have orgasms about how wonderful their Beloved Leader is. They have accepted actions by Trump that they wouldn’t have permitted from ANY OTHER PRESIDENT — Democratic OR Republican.

    The FucksPods and TrumpBots are just as much victims of Trump’s depravity as anyone else. And still they make excuses. FucksPods go on CNN saying that any investigation against Trump “seems like a waste of time,” while demanding more and more investigations on invented scandals like BENGHAZI! and EMAILS! and ACORN! and WHITEWATER!

    What will it take for these people to abandon Donald Trump? The Republicans abandoned Nixon for far less.

    • “What will it take for these people to abandon Donald Trump?”

      If you mean Republican voters, they are already falling off. His approval keeps getting lower. But there will always be a base of maybe 30% Deploarables who are essentially brain dead. And we don’t need (or want) them.

      If you mean Republican pols, forget it. They don’t give a shit about anything but themselves and maintaining power. We don’t need them either.
