Thanks A Lot, John McCain

Man, the GOP never ceases to amaze me, son. I mean, they are just hell bent on getting rid of a healthcare system that’s actually helping people. On the real, who needs a replacement plan, right? Let’s just repeal the current law with NO hope of finding a substitute. Listen, that’s basically what the Republicans are doing right now, fam. Like, they can’t get a bill of their own passed, but still “need” to destroy the Affordable Care Act. All I know is, John McCain is no better than the rest of his constituents. All in all, thanks for nothing, McCain.

So, before I continue, let me be clear about something. I have nothing but respect for McCain’s service to this country. Nothing can take away from the fact that he’s a war hero. In addition, before he made the MONUMENTAL ERROR of choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate, I wasn’t entirely mad at his previous presidential bid. With that being said, I can’t condone his fuck shit in regards to healthcare. For a man who’s supposed to be a “maverick,” he’s essentially choosing his party over the American people.

Now, for those who are unaware, the Senate had an emergency healthcare vote yesterday. The wild thing is, they weren’t voting on a replacement plan. Why? Because they don’t fucking have one, man! Instead, they just voted to begin debate on repealing ACA. Meaning, these clowns are determined to get rid of Barack Obama‘s plan, despite the fact that they have nothing to offer. Ultimately, the vote passed 51-50, with Mike Pence serving as the tiebreaker.

To make matters worse, after his ridiculous vote, McCain still stated he wouldn’t vote for the proposed GOP bill. So, why the FUCK did he make this vote, bruh?! That doesn’t make any sense, fam! He admitted that they have no plan and he admitted that ACA’s popularity is rising while Republicans fumble the ball. By and by, this administration would rather burn down the establishment than admit that no one wants what they’re selling. Fam, I truly don’t understand how ANY of these politicians sleep at night.

In the end, a cancer diagnosis won’t stop me from calling McCain out on his shit, man. I wish him the best in regards to his health, but it’s ironic that he clearly doesn’t wish the same for us. All in all, I wonder if McCain even knows who he’s fighting for anymore. Real talk, it ain’t the American people, son. Not in any shape, form or fashion. LC out.

Greg Gianforte: The Stone Cold Steve Austin Of Politics

Bruh, what manner of fuckery is this? I mean, is this how our politicians are getting down now? Look, I know we’re in the age of Donald Trump, but there has to be a limit to the foolishness, right? Son, Greg Gianforte really just took a hatred of the press to the next level. For a moment, he forgot he was running for Congress and took up Stone Cold Steve Austin‘s mantle. All I know is, I’m not sure how practicing wrestling moves can help a campaign.

Now, I won’t lie, son. When I first heard the story I’m about to tell, I laughed. Like, I couldn’t fathom the idea of a politician doing what Gianforte did, man. So, for those who are unaware, Gianforte physically attacked a reporter. It all began when Ben Jacobs, a journalist from The Guardian, walked into Gianforte’s campaign headquarters and put a recorder in front of Gianforte. Apparently, he wanted to know Gianforte’s take on the latest Congressional Budget Office report. This newly-released document stated that 23 million people would lose health insurance under the recently-approved American Health Care Act. Needless to say, Gianforte wasn’t thrilled by the question.

From there, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck, body slammed him and then started punching him in the face. Now, how do we know all of this? Because Alicia Acuna, a Fox News reporter, was one of the people in the room when the assault occurred. Meaning, they were able to refute Gianforte’s claim that Jacobs was physically aggressive towards him. All in all, Gianforte went into Wolverine berserker mode and started bugging out on Jacobs.

Man, what in the fuckity-fuck is good in these streets? Son, this dude is running for Congress? Like, he’s trying to be down with the House of Representatives? For real?! How the fuck can anyone in Montana vote for this dude if he behaves like this? How can this man be trusted by anyone? For God‘s sake, he attacked a man for asking him a question! How does that action exude any type of leadership or self-control? At this point, Montana should be ashamed of themselves if they elect this clown. Hell, he was just arrested for what he did to Jacobs. Ultimately, he doesn’t deserve a seat in the House, fam.

In the end, our political system has gone to Hell, son. Listen, I literally can’t guess what will happen next with our elected officials. Seriously, everyone has lost their fucking minds around here. At this rate, I might really have to run for office, man. I mean, I’m competent enough, right? Right?! Yeah, I thought so. LC out.

217-213

Now, for anyone who’s confused by the title of this post, let me explain. Those numbers represent the votes it took for the GOP to destroy healthcare. At this point, if anyone has a pre-existing condition, then get ready for Hell. The Republicans have essentially ensured that the sick among us won’t be insured. All I know is, the 2018 midterm elections can’t come soon enough.

To begin, let me talk about myself for a second. In my lifetime, I’ve dealt with depression, migraines, acne and multiple knee surgeries. In addition, my mother has multiple sclerosis, my family has a long history with diabetes and I’ve lost several loved ones to cancer. All of this is notable because every condition I’ve just listed is considered a pre-existing condition. Under the American Health Care Act, insurance companies can now make healthcare unaffordable for people like us.

Essentially, under this new bill, insurers can raise premiums for anyone with a pre-existing condition. Basically, if anyone is sick and can’t afford a plan, they’ll have to deal with high-risk pools. These pools give companies the right to charge sick people higher prices than the general population.

In my eyes, it’s like people are being punished for being unwell. All I want to know is, why is being sick such a fucking crime? Why do our elected officials care so little about the less fortunate? Hell, based on statistics, the 11 states with the highest rates for pre-existing conditions all voted for Donald Trump. Well, I hope they’re all happy with their choices when they can’t get a doctor to cure them.

Ultimately, I’m at a loss for words, son. In the end, I better see everyone at the ballot box during the midterm elections. We need to get these crooked motherfuckers out of office, man. *Sigh* LC out.
