Epic FAIL.

I have a question for all of you Trump supporters. Just to be clear this is not a rhetorical question. I'm genuinely curious as to what your reasoning could possibly be. Here goes. How can you continue support a "president" who not only failed to deliver on his key promise, but had no idea how he was going to do so? Yes! I'm talking about Obama Care or the Affordable Health Care Act. Trump promised his constituents that he would repeal Obama Care because it was "terrible" and it would put a strain on the economy. Playing on the innate hatred of the average American racist to invalidate an idea that the Black president conceived and put into motion. Trump did not offer a solution, a better idea, an alternative or an improvement. Unless you count a health care plan that would have stripped 24 million Americans of basic care and would drastically hike premiums for people over 60, a solution, a better idea, or an improvement. But of course, no sane person would. The fact that this bill failed is not surprising in the least given the fact that House Speaker Paul Ryan has absolutely no concept of how insurance works. Then again maybe he actually does and chose to present old facts as new horrendous ideas. Ryan said that under Obama Care young people would have to pay for older people. In other words, everyone would contribute to a "pool" that would benefit each other when needed. But that is how insurance does and has always worked. So, at best Ryan is spelling it out and making it sound worse than it is, and it worse he's preying on those who are uneducated and or ignorant. Either way it is a gross misrepresentation of the facts. An "alternative truth" as they say. But here is the truth. There was never any real GOP interest in a viable option in regards to healthcare for the American people. The primary goal of the Republican Party is and perhaps always will be to destroy the Obama legacy even if some of their poor constituents suffer. I imagine by now that many who cast their ballots for Trump are beginning to realize that the enemy of their enemy is not their friend. He is actually everybody's enemy.
