Trump's Latest Scam Is Killing People

Thom plus logo More Americans are now going bankrupt because of medical bills because of a scam the Donald Trump instituted, thinking it will help him get reelected.

When Trump ran for president, he promised to replace Obamacare policies with insurance that was better and cheaper. Ignoring the "better" part, and focusing on "cheaper," the Trump administration has allowed short term (maximum 90 days) "emergency" policies to extend out to three years. These "emergency" policies do not cover pre-existing conditions and allow insurance companies to dump you if you become too expensive. They were the only loophole left in Obamacare, and Trump has taking that loophole and turned it into an industry.

So now, people looking for cheap health insurance policies are being directed to these scam plans both by the Centers for Medicare Services and by insurance hustlers. As a result, people are now getting sick and discovering that their health insurance policies don't cover them.

Trump's latest scam is literally killing people. If you buy what you think is an Obamacare policy during these final few weeks of open enrollment, make sure it actually is.

Trump twat is instrumental by cause

The disturbing lack of power to think and reason has been deliberately denied to our younger populace by a failing politicised education system

The intentional result has manifest in many new "mental disorder" issues

Young people are trapped in a life conception of anxiety, fear, doubt and desperation

Doctors prescribe pills that knowingly reduce mind power... for personal gain!

Medical treatment is denied to almost 50% of the populace

The least efficient and expensive healthcare system in the world is simply driven by greed

In the land of the free... when is anybody going to get the fact "the american dream" is NOT for the masses???

American is no longer the land of the free when people in political office can be bought off for any reason. As long as money is considered free speech we will have to fight for our very lives. Greed has taken over politicals so they are now slaves to their money masters.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
