I know it’s hard to forget because of all
of the crimes the president seems to be committing. Most of them just right out in the open now. But we also have to remember that his administration
is actually still making rules and still trying to do really horrible things to this country
that are not illegal and therefore unfortunately not getting the uh, air time that they deserve. And one of those things folks happens to be
the fact that Donald Trump and his department of justice, along with 18 Republican attorneys
general from across the United States are arguing in court that the entirety of the
affordable care act should be struck down. The entire affordable care act should be gone. That is what the Trump administration is arguing
in court right now for the fifth circuit. But here’s the thing, Republicans, including
the Trump administration itself, according to interviews that the Washington post did
with current administration officials say that they’re very worried about this court
decision and that if they get the decision they want, which is that the affordable care
act gets struck down, they’re going to ask the judge, the court, the circuit to a stay
the ruling until you know, after the 2020 election and should they lose the court case? Obviously they’re going to appeal it, but
they’re going to ask that the appeal be delayed before it goes to the Supreme court till after
the 2020 election. Now, why on earth if they’d been fighting
so hard for nearly 10 years to dismantle the affordable care act, would they not want to
do this right before the presidential election? The answer is because they know that the public
actually likes the affordable care act, as crappy as it is. Here’s the thing, folks, for a very long time,
support for the affordable care act was about 50 50 on a good day, you could find plenty
of polls that showed majority didn’t like it. Plenty of the show to majority did like it,
but it all evened out to about 50 50 until again, year and a half, two years ago. Remember when Republicans had all their majorities,
they had the Supreme court, they had the presidency, house and Senate, and they said, we’re going
to repeal the affordable care act. We’re going to do this. Suddenly the public realized, especially by
having all those town halls where they called out those Republicans, they realize they like
it and ever since then the affordable care act has had a net positive approval rating. People like it now, but the administration,
the Republicans all over the country don’t want to give up that fight because it’s a
thing that Obama did. They hate Obama with a blind passion that
makes no sense. So they want to get rid of it, but they don’t
want to feel the repercussions of their own policies. So they want the courts to not give them a
positive ruling until after they all get reelected. Then at that point to hell with everybody,
we don’t care. You lose your health care. We don’t care if you can’t get covered for
preexisting conditions. We’ve already admitted that we don’t have
a backup plan. So yeah, oops, you’re all screwed. But we got reelected so nothing else matters. This is the plan that they’re doing right
now, folks, right now. This little disgusting, deceitful plan is
in motion by the Trump administration and scores of Republicans all the way from the
state level to the Senate. This is what they’re trying to do. You know how we defeat this, not just at the
ballot box first, we do have to defeat it at the ballot box and then we can defeat it
once and for all. Enact Medicare for all. Get every single person in this country covered
for their entire health spectrum. Whatever it is you need, you’re covered. Go to a doctor, whichever doctor you want,
we don’t care. You’re covered prescription drugs. Here you go. You already paid for it with your a premium
that’s actually lower than the premium you pay now. So everybody’s fine. So then, then watch Republicans try to challenge
that in court, right? What’s going to happen if Democrats like Bernie
Sanders succeed? And giving everybody in this country, healthcare,
every single person and corporate, uh, premiums that your boss pays for, you disappear. They don’t have to pay that money anymore. That’s more money in their pockets. You John Q taxpayer, have more money in your
pockets. Cause yeah, your taxes went up a little bit,
but your insurance premiums disappeared and the taxes aren’t as high as your premiums
were. So you’re saving money too. And again, best of all, you go to any doctor
you want. Anytime you have a problem, you get your medicine,
you move on with your life, fewer people die. Productivity goes up because there’s fewer
sick days from people too scared to go to the doctor. Everybody wins. And if Republicans try to take that away from
us, it doesn’t matter if you’re left, right or center, there will be a revolt in this
country because people are going to like it. How do we know that? Oh, because Medicare as it stands right now
for the elderly has an overwhelming approval rating of more than three quarters of people
on it. Say that they like it, they love it. But that’s the only way to end this Obamacare
drama once and for all. And I can tell you one person who’s never
going in that drama, Joe Biden, Joe Biden, is staking his entire presidential campaign
on the fact that he worked with that Obama guy, and this is their baby, and he’ll never
let anyone touch it. And if we leave it as it is, or if we enact
any kind of half-assed Medicare, for some people who may think they want it, plan Republicans
will dismantle it in the future. The only way to prevent that full coverage
for everyone then nothing they can do about it.
