The beginning of the end ...

The cover up is on. Trump fired the FBI chief who is conducting an investigation to get at the possible collusion between Trump's campaign and ties to Russia.

But Trump didn't care for Comey long before today's action. Three things:

  1. Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton in the FBI investigation of her email practices (remember Trump was in full "Lock her up" mode at the time);
  2. After Trump became president Comey never backed up Trump's accusation that President Obama had spied on him; and
  3. Comey told Congress, during sworn testimony, that the bureau was investigating ties between Trump's campaign and Russia.

That's enough to make a very, very small man very, very pissed. 

I predicted before the So-Called President's inauguration that Trump would not last his full term. Remember Trump saying the job was harder than it looks? Time to bail. 

But this development means the White House in full cover up mode. Firing Comey will have the opposite effect from the one desired. I suspect that agents in the FBI will double down on the investigation on Trump and Russia ties.

It took 64 tries ...

it took 64 tries for Repubs to finally get the ball over the goal line. They voted to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act this morning. They are sooo happy. Their coach, Toady Paul Ryan, gave a disgustingly obsequious speech on the floor of the house. Of course he didn't mention that this version of the bill is worse than their first try a month ago. They can't be proud that this was done on the backs of the poor and the sick. 

They voted for the bill without knowing its cost and how many people will lose their health insurance  Shame. 

As I said before, elections matter. This Republican Clown Posse should pay for the worst vote these current members have ever cast. Can't wait for the 2018 House elections. 

Get the iprofit making insurance companies out of health entirely. Join me in advocating for single payer health care ... like every other industrialized country.
