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.

Why a little insurrection is no big deal to Republicans

It seems inexplicable.

A group of Americans invaded the US Capitol with a plan to kidnap and kill the Vice President and the Speaker of the House, hoping that would throw the Electoral College vote to the US House, where Republicans would declare Donald Trump the winner.
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
