If you have have no insurance… If you are counting on health care expansion… Donald Trump has a word for you… 


The word is NO!!!!! 

This is believe it or not a post that  has nothing to do with emails. It has nothing with Trump being a racist,  a bigot,  a liar,  a misogynist  or even being remarkably ignorant of the world we live in.   It has to do with Donald Trump being dangerous and the incredible consequences his election would have for the poorest and most vulnerable people in this country. 

For several years now a lot of my energy,  my heart,  my soul has went in the effort to close the coverage gap in Tennessee and give access to medical care to 280,000 poor people in Tennessee.   In the last years I have met people who have had loved ones die from lack of access to medical care.   I  have met person after person who has suffered horribly simply because they are poor.   I know people right now that have ran out of wait and probably won’t make it another year. 

In the link above Donald Trump tells those people tough luck.   He says the ACA is gone first thing if he is president.   Once again a Republican is using people’s lives for political capital.   It is called murder. 

Throughout the country I don’t even know how many people will be affected.   He has no real plan.   I wonder if he begins to realize how many people he will destroy.  I wonder if he cares. 

I  have been involved for a long time now.   I don’t think any of this is a matter of opinion.   Everyone involved in Tennessee knows the presidency of Donald Trump is the end of health care reform. 

The House of Representatives used to repeal the ACA as a matter of entertainment.   I don’t know even how many times they killed it.   They didn’t have to have a plan or to worry about the consequences of their action.   They knew no sane President was going to let them hurt millions of people just to toot their own horn.   You want to know something scary.   With Trump the worst impulses of the Republican Party will be able to play out.   The House of Representatives might matter.   State governments that are trying to gather the courage to say being a Republican does not have to mean letting poor people die will find it harder to step up and be decent people.   

If Donald Trump is elected there will be blood on his hands.   It is that simple.   Emails whatever you believe are not the moral equivalent of murder.   If you think so I pity you you. 

Trump is a guy desperate for votes. 

Too desperate.   Too ignorant.   And I am sorry just evil.  Some people reading this may be mad at me for being so blunt.   Be mad. 

No one should have to die because they are poor.   It should not be a capital offense and for way too many it has been.   No politician should ever go unchallenged that tries to profit from it.
