Deja Vu all over again

dollarsignThe Senate GOP tax scam… er… bill… is on hold tonight. Seems the Senators are uncertain they’ve set the stage for sufficient transfers of money from poor and middle class Americans to the 1% to successfully pass the bill. Also, they may be looking for ways to throw even more than the projected 13 million off the insurance rolls before they come to a vote.

A powerful California politician was excoriated in 2010 for saying, of the ACA, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Now that’s the reality for this bill, still being re-written only minutes before it was scheduled to go to the full Senate for a vote. Strangely, though, the right wing that went nuts about Pelosi’s statement is mum on the current shenanigans taking place in Congress.

And did you see Lindsay Graham’s comments today about the media and President Trump? “You know what concerns me about the American press is this endless, endless attempt to label the guy as some kind of kook, not fit to be president.”

And did you see Lindsay Graham’s comments in 2016, about Donald Trump? “Donald Trump is not a conservative Republican. He’s an opportunist. He’s not fit to be President of the United States.” – via Twitter, 17 Feb, 2016

Yeah. Deja vu all over again.
