And “he said, my, my, said the spider to the fly…”
And “jump right ahead and you’re dead…” and it seems as though everything that President Trump is doing at present is working brilliantly. We don’t know if it is moving a four-star full-fledged general into the White House and everybody to everything goes through General Kelly first…or if it is that the economy stands better statistically than at any other time in USA history.
Then again, maybe it is that the Dow Jones Industrial Average just about toppled the 22K barrier today (did he just type 22,000?). Or even more significantly he has finally let US Attorney General Jeff Sessions do his job and from a report in the Washington Times today:
“A stunning 22 percent of the federal prison population is immigrants who have either already been deemed to be in the country illegally or who the government is looking to put in deportation proceedings, the administration said Tuesday.
President Trump requested the numbers as part of his initial immigration executive orders.
The 22 percent is much higher than the population of foreign-born in the U.S. as a whole, which is about 13.5 percent.
All told, the government counted more than 42,000 aliens in federal prisons as of June 24.
About 47 percent already face final deportation orders, making them illegal immigrants, and 3 percent are currently in immigration courts facing deportation proceedings.”
I believe that the last paragraph could have been worded differently; however, the disease of political correctness tends to leave individuals at various levels.
Please do not take this the wrong way – but even if John McCain joined Senator’s Collins R-ME and Sen. Lisa Murkowski R-AL, I believe it is fitting for the congressional leadership to let ObamaCare die its death and to come up with a completely new healthcare plan.
By the way, does anyone know just how many people were left uninsured during the ObamaCare reign? Nonetheless, I still believe that regardless of competition, insurance companies, or what have you, a national BASIC healthcare plan will suffice any person who does not have healthcare right now.
Not to be misunderstood, if a person entered with a pre-existing condition would naturally indicate that they have had insurance in the past; therefore, they would not be left to basic minimums. Again, it is the steadfast opinion of this author that the national healthcare system should start out with the essential minimums as mandated by any HMO and gradually grow from there.
