Trump likes to say that anything against him is fake news, especially if it comes from unnamed sources. But when Trump “hears” something via Twitter or his supporters create a conspiracy suddenly it’s factual and the mainstream media won’t report the truth because it’s all “fake news” and a conspiracy against Trump by the liberal media and Democrats. Despite Loretta Lynch denying any involvement in issuing visas and having no authority over entry to the United States at airports.Read more
Over the last few months, strategy after strategy deployed by the Republican Party to make good on their seven-year promise to do away with President Obama’s signature healthcare legislation has crumbled. Even with full control of Congress and the presidency, the GOP cannot seem to come up with a health care bill that satisfies the needed number of legislators, much less the public. So on Monday night, when the idea was floated that Congress should simply repeal Obamacare and then worry about figuring out a replacement plan at a later date, people understandably went nuts.
While Democrats continue to oppose any plan the Republicans come up with to fix Obamacare or repeal it, the GOP last two attempts at repealing and replacing Obamacare have failed. In addition, any attempt to fully repeal Obamacare like they voted for in 2015 is no longer viable because of moderate senators like Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Senator Capito who refuse to vote for a full repeal bill as promised the past seven years. So as it stands today, the repeal of Obamacare has failed, as has the GOP attempt to replace it. At this point it would be better to let Obamacare fail and the burden be left on the Democrats who voted for it, without any bipartisan support. Eventually, states will have to loosen regulations that don’t allow competition across state lines and tort reforms will need to be made, along with other reforms that help bring premium costs down, along with health care.Read more
Net neutrality isn’t about censorship, but who will pay for faster Internet speeds. If ISPs are to keep up with consumer demands for fast broadband for live streaming the companies who provide live streaming and the ISPs need to work together to negotiate the cost of upgrades. Right now streaming services like Netflix expect the ISPs to pay for upgraded fiberoptics, but ISPs believe streaming service providers should pay for the upgrades. Either way consumers will need to pay more because corporations always increase prices when the cost for service increases. So if you like your Netflix and faster broadband expect to pay more. Net neutrality is not about free speech nor the first amendment, but cost control and government regulations. Remember, anytime government gets involved more regulations, control and expensive things usually come for the consumer.Read more
