“Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead” seems to be part of progressives’ commute playlist this morning, as news of the death of their political donor boogeyman, David Koch, reverberated around the internet. Several leftwing celebs jumped to Twitter to celebrate the billionaire philanthropist’s death, as he was a major donor to the Republican party. Too bad the man was probably one of the left’s better friends across enemy lines for his support of abortion and same-sex marriage and opposition to President Trump in conservative circles.
Business dilemma: Faced with the choice, do you continue to soak up government subsidies to fund 97% of what your operation, or do you forswear the pork and concentrate on the 3% (really, just 3% you swear!) If you’re America’s largest abortion mill, you go with the latter. The Trump administration is forcing the professional baby killers at Planned Parenthood to make that choice, decreeing that healthcare providers receiving government funds via Title X may not use the money to promote or provide abortions in any way, shape or form.
On August 1, PolitiFact took meticulous exception to a new Trump ad that shows NBC debate moderator Savannah Guthrie asking ten Democrat presidential candidates in June "Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants." The announcer said "These Democrats support giving illegal immigrants free health care at our expense." PolitiFact proclaimed this was "MOSTLY FALSE," because they didn't say "free health care" by raising their hand!
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has lots of big ideas to redesign the United States. She dreams of Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, forgiving student loans, waging war on corporate America and more. On the debate stage in Detroit, Warren pushed back when others raised doubts about her ambitious agenda: "I don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for."
After repeatedly offering a blase attitude about the idea of eliminating private health insurance and adopting a Medicare for all plan, CBS on Thursday actually managed some tough questions to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Actually pushing the socialist on the desire for eliminating private health care, co-host Anthony Mason demanded, “A CBS News poll found that nearly two-thirds of Democrats think a national health care plan will work better if it competes with private insurance. Doesn't that suggest you're trying to sell something that Democratic voters do not want?”
She’s a former stripper turned rapper. He’s the aging star of the 1988 classic Honeymoon in Moscow. They’re teaming up for the zaniest buddy-comedy/caper picture of the political season: Booty and the Borscht!
During a live edition of NBC’s Late Night early Thursday morning, left-wing host Seth Meyers attacked MSNBC’s Chris Matthews for daring to challenge Elizabeth Warren on her extreme socialist health care plan following Tuesday night’s Democratic debate. Meyers savaged the Hardball host and accused him of trying to “mansplain” to the 2020 presidential candidate.
The Trump administration made positive headlines on Wednesday after Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced the United States was looking at allowing FDA-approved drugs to be imported from foreign counties, such as Canada, where they were cheaper. Despite previously decrying the skyrocketing price of prescription drug costs, that evening, CBS Evening News chose to ignore that major proposal to aid struggling American families and instead hyped a new statue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Reacting to night one of CNN’s Democratic debate, on Wednesday’s Today show, NBC News political analysts and former Senator Claire McCaskill was relieved that the radical health care plans advocated by Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders were hammered by their fellow 2020 candidates. McCaskill also completely rejected any possibility of such extreme proposals ever becoming law.
CNN host Anderson Cooper pressed Warren on what her ideas would cost people, particularly union workers, who liked their health insurance. Meanwhile, MSNBC host Chris Matthews absolutely grilled the Senator about how much taxes would need to go up to pay for it all and her refusal to answer the question.
The second round of Democratic presidential debates featured another helping of radical leftwing ideas, including $500 billion in slavery reparations, and repealing or altering the Second Amendment. But curiously, one major progressive issue, abortion, was left out in the cold – which sparked the public ire of abortion giant Planned Parenthood and other “reproductive healthcare” disciples.
