Trump demands list of congressional Republicans who recognize Biden’s victory

President Trump on Saturday demanded to know who the congressional Republicans were who acknowledged President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election.

The president was referring to a survey from The Washington Post that found that only 25 Congressional Republicans acknowledged Biden’s victory.

Those numbers will likely continue to grow as more Republicans [we hope] grow sufficient backbone to stand up for reality versus cowards in suits. So far, only 30% of Congressional Republicans even dared to answer the question.

A moot point, of course, after the archaic Electoral College submits their required vote, real soon now.

Co$t of care for the Trumpkin?

President Donald Trump spent three days in the hospital. He arrived and left by helicopter. And he received multiple coronavirus tests, oxygen, steroids and an experimental antibody treatment.

For someone who isn’t president, that would cost more than $100,000 in the American health system. Patients could face significant surprise bills and medical debt even after health insurance paid its share…

Across the country, patients have struggled with both the long-term health and financial effects of contracting coronavirus. Nearly half a million have been hospitalized. Routine tests can result in thousands of dollars in uncovered charges; hospitalized patients have received bills upward of $400,000.

Trump did not have to worry about the costs of his care, which are covered by the federal government. Most Americans, including many who carry health coverage, do worry about receiving medical care they cannot afford.

You and I paid for his care. A level of care we’ll never afford on our own. A level of care that Trump and the Republican Party will never advocate for ordinary Americans. In truth – they’re working as hard as their evil little hearts allow to slash and cut the level of federal medical care we currently have at hand.

Republican alumni support Biden

A group of former George W. Bush administration and campaign officials has launched a new super PAC to mobilize disaffected Republican voters for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The group, launched…under the name “43 Alumni for Biden,” “seeks to unite and mobilize a community of historically Republican voters who are dismayed and disappointed by the damage done to our nation by Donald Trump’s presidency,” according to a release. The formation of the group is the latest example of efforts being made by anti-Trump Republicans to defeat the President in November.

Karen Kirksey, the director of the committee and who worked on the Bush 2000 election campaign and in the Labor and Agriculture Departments, said the endorsement of Biden is “not necessarily in full support of his political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation.”

Welcome aboard, folks. “Better late than never” is an acceptable excuse at election time. I guess.
