Article claims that trump will 'lose support' of hacks like corkie. Seems to me that he never had support of the gop lifers. What is there to lose? I don't get where the ouch is.

It is about 2018 for Trump now.  He is betting that he has the pulse of the American people and the eGOP and eDNC are lost and confused about what is happening.

Agreed - both Obama and Reid created precedent that everyone warned them they would regret.

I have to believe that despite his sometimes idiotic tweets, that Trump is getting fed real data on sentiments around what the American electorate is thinking.

First, it's by Neil Cavuto.  I guess you didn't read the quote where he is starting to wonder if the POTUS is sound.

Corker has been a supporter of trump.  How quickly you lemmings forget all that has happened in life prior to a stupid tweet.

Often and numerous idiotic tweets.

Yeah, maybe you're right.

When you call people names and insult them you just sound like a douchey punk-ass b1tch. You're better than that.

I assume the data hounds are no-names with brains.  Somehow they figured out how to win a nomination and an election.

The press furiously pushes back whenever anyone suggests they're out of line, however there are limits on freedom of the press (e.g. libel) like there are on freedom of speech and 2A. The NBC reporting of "tenfold" nuke expansion was refuted by Mattis. The amount of false reporting - I suspect fed by Dem operatives like Ben Rhodes - should be investigated.

NBC may be trying to avert attention away from them not airing the Weinstein story published by The New Yorker. The author worked for NBC and told Maddow about it. http://deadline.com/2017/10/ronan-farrow-harvey-weinstein-rachel-maddow-new-yorker-nbc-news-1202186126/

On Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show, the host asked Farrow, “Why did you end up reporting this story for The New Yorker and not NBC News?” (Watch his remarks in the video below, at around the 4 minute mark.)

Responded Farrow: “You would have to ask NBC and NBC executives about the details of that story. I’m not going to comment on any news organization’s story that they did or didn’t run.”

Maddow, however, reported NBC News said what he brought to them was not ready to air.

Farrow was having none of that. “I walked into the door at The New Yorker with an explosive reportable piece that should have been public earlier. And immediately New Yorker recognized that, and it is not accurate to say that it was not reportable,” Farrow said.  “In fact, there were multiple determinations that it was reportable at NBC.”

NBC has a long history



http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jan/27/nbcs-chuck-todd-media-knew-how-hated-hillary-was-h/



Where I think political correctness got in the way of what we all knew as reporters and didn’t fully deliver was how hated the Clintons were in the heartland,” the “Meet the Press” host admitted Thursday to former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in a interview for the “1947” podcast.
“And I think it was a fear of, ‘Oh, is it going to look like it’s sexist, anti-woman if we say that?’” he added, pointing out that on the hustings he saw numerous “Hillary for Prison” signs adorning the front yards of rural America.
“I think we underplayed it a little bit out of political correctness fears,” Mr. Todd said. “No member of the press corps wants to look like they’re singling out a group and making a group feel bad, right, whatever that [group] is.

“What do I think we did wrong in this election? The biggest thing is we didn’t tell the stories of all Americans,” Mr. Todd said. “We told the stories of coastal Americans. And ultimately, that’s like the larger trust issue.”
“We were more likely to do a story about the Dreamer that might get deported with new policies than we were about the 19-year-old opioid addict who feels hopeless in Rolla, Missouri. And, I’m not, I don’t pick on Rolla, Missouri, it’s, my point is that we just, we did not equally tell those stories very well, right, and, we were not, that is an out-of-touch issue.”

It's good to see such statements made by members on the Right. Fighting against any kind of power grab by a political leader, intended or otherwise, requires accountability from all sides if it's going to have any chance at being successful.

CoS John Kelly was very impressive at today's WH press briefing - I highly recommend watching the entire thing for both the humor and substance. This was a debut performance as CoS because he's avoided interviews while learning the lay of the land. I'm very glad he took one more final question because he explained how the Oval Office operates now. Hopefully this is the start of him being more public.

I liked the way Kelly played dumb as to how to handle the entrenched media on the front row. He gave them a little jab to insure them that he knew how the game was played, and feigned ignorance at the same time. The media got played, and spoon fed. AGAIN. What a bunch of idiots.

I like Kelly. Seems to know how to be in charge without seeming arrogant. Positive. Hope a little of that class rubs off on the boor in chief.

Here's what trump refers to as bailouts. Dishonestly describing help for low and middle income families to have affordable health care as a bailout. What a douch. If you doubt the information....please take the time to click on the links before you lazily start referring to me as a liberal commie. try to be honest.

[kUuht00m_bigger]Donald J. Trump 
 
@realDonaldTrump

If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!

Trump’s reference to an insurance company "bailout" likely refers to reimbursements the federal government gives carriers who cover certain lower-income Americans in Obamacare exchanges. (We also investigated his claim about bailouts for Congress in this story.)

Insurance companies are required under Obamacare to share the cost of deductibles, copays and other out-of-pocket expenses borne by roughly 7 million customers whose incomes are below 250 percent of the federal poverty line, or less than about $30,000 for a single person.

The federal government has reimbursed insurance companies for these contributions, known as "cost-sharing reductions," or CSRs. This year, insurers are on track to receive $7 billion in these reimbursements, and $10 billion in 2018, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

"I would strongly argue with the characterization of these as a ‘bailout,’ " said Linda Blumberg, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute, who underscored that insurers are required by law to share costs with consumers.

While the precise impact of Trump’s proposal to end these reimbursements is unknown, experts have said ending the payments could drive up the cost of insurance while reducing the number of options for consumers.

"If the CSR payments end... insurers would face significant revenue shortfalls this year and next," the Kaiser Family Foundation wrote earlier this year when Trump was noncommittal to Obamacare subsidies. "Many insurers might react to the end of subsidy payments by exiting the ACA marketplaces. If insurers choose to remain in the marketplaces, they would need to raise premiums to offset the loss of the payments."

If Trump’s move resulted in higher premiums, it could actually end up costing the federal government more money than continuing with the status quo, Blumberg said.

That’s because the federal government gives premium tax credits to help lower-income Americans buy insurance (those making up to 400 percent of the federal poverty line are eligible). The law also caps the amount of income this group can spend on premiums.

Because there are more people eligible for premium tax credits (up to 400 percent of the federal poverty line) than those who qualify for cost-sharing reductions (up to 250 percent of the federal poverty line), some estimate the government would end up paying more in premium tax credits than the roughly $7 billion to 10 billion yearly reimbursements.

The Kaiser Family Foundation estimated "the increased cost to the federal government of higher premium tax credits would be 23 percent more than the savings from eliminating cost-sharing reduction payments."

I would not call them baliouts either.  More handouts.  Glad they are ending.  

2 people sitting at a restaurant having lunch. 

First one, Sally, is hard working, works as much as possible in overtime.  She makes a comfortable living - about 50k a year, and living in a metropolitan area, that is a slim lifestyle but she gets buy.  She pays over 15k in health care premiums. 

Second one, Suzy, is on medicare expansion.  She does not work.  She consumes over 15k in healthcare premiums every year.  Suzy actually has better free healthcare than Sally does.   Yet, Sally in effect pays the majority of Suzy's healthcare.

Why would Sally get up every morning and go to work?

1 story. Not the problem. Many people can't work enough to get ahead. Medical situations could be one of the reasons. The very reason we need single payer.
