Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, March 20, 2017

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney threw cold water on the promise that "everybody" would get health insurance under GOP legislation -- a promise that was made by none other than President Donald Trump himself. "We don't have universal -- the only way to have universal care, if you stop to think about it, is to force people to buy it under penalty of law," Mulvaney said Sunday on ABC's This Week. The expectation of everyone in the nation getting health insurance if Trump took office came from promises he himself made. "We're going to have insurance for everybody," Trump said in January. "There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it. That's not going to happen with us."

candidate Trump:

May 21, 2015
I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.

Sept 25, 2015
Everybody's got to be covered.

Feb 17, 2016
We're going to have great plans. They're going to be much less expensive and they're going to be much better.

Oct 25, 2016
You're going to have such great healthcare at a tiny fraction of the cost, and it is going to be so easy.

Nov 13, 2016
It will be better healthcare, much better for less money. Not a bad combination.

""We don't have universal ― the only way to have universal care, if you stop to think about it, is to force people to buy it under penalty of law," Mulvaney said Sunday on ABC's "This Week.""

Everyone knows that is a lie, we could simply enact Medicare for all. Oh but billionaires and millionaires think tax increases for them are too high a price to pay to insure all Americans. To me those wealthy people are unAmerican and should not be defended, protected, respected. They want to live in the wild west where everyone takes care of themselves well let's start right now. That means all of their wealth, all of their property, etc. is only theirs as long as they can defend their ownership of it. If you want a civilized society realize that healthcare is a basic need not a privelege for the rich.

The GOP will pass this POS health care law, Trump will sign it. The next day he will say "We gave coverage to everyone on tv."

He is pathological.

#8 Another tolerant member of the left who if someone said this about Obama would call the police. Notice to ABLOCK, get a job and get off your parent's plan, you might feel better about yourself.

#9, everything #8 said is true. Its just not nice to wish cancer or anything else, such as prison, upon Trump.

The Right said FAR WORSE about Obama. Far far far worse. And most of it wasn't even true.

Yep. She saw you as not a real man ("She told us that some day a real man was gonna hep us out." - #17 | Posted by phesterOBoyle at 2017-03-21) 06:13 PM

"She four-saw President Trump"

What is a "four-saw"?

Is that some kind of chainsaw for guys with small junk?

Again, your Granny pegged you perfectly.

"What is a "four-saw"?" [Sic]

Let me try to splain [sic] it yet again..
My granny foresaw the election of President Trump, the man that will help us.
Yes granny was right.
