Trump promises to permanently eliminate the funding mechanism for Social Security and Medicare if reelected

The past few days have been absolutely fucking nuts. Donald Trump promised to defund Social Security and Medicare if reelected, accelerated his work to destroy the U.S. Postal Service in advance of the 2020 election, and once again claimed wrongly that it was him, and not Barack Obama, who signed “Vetrans Choice” into law.

I thought we could discuss Trump’s new health plan today — the one he promised to have signed into law yesterday — but apparently it doesn’t exist yet… In Trump’s defense, he’s only had 3.5 years.

Gary Peters on health care: “I put it all an the line to make (the ACA) happen, so don’t question my motivations here.”

Michigan Senator Gary Peters held a town hall meeting today at Eastern Michigan University. As it was just announced yesterday evening, attendance was relatively sparse. I’d say there were maybe about 125 people in the audience, most of whom, judging by how people introduced themselves when posing questions to the Senator, were from Ann Arbor. […]
