Trump’s got time and money and that ‘should scare us all’: former Obama campaign manager 15.3.2020 Raw Story
When I spoke to David Plouffe, the semi-legendary architect of Barack Obama’s victorious presidential campaign in 2008, it was the afternoon of March 3, Super Tuesday. So neither of us exactly knew that Joe Biden’s coast-to-coast wipeout was coming — although, re-reading this transcript, I’m forced to conclude Plouffe had a clearer idea than I […]

GMA Hypes ‘Horrified’ Democrats, Held Hostage’ by Trump’s Divisive SOTU 5.2.2020 NewsBusters

SCOTUS Punts On Obamacare; Trump Will Lie Again For 2020 21.1.2020 Crooks Liars
Rather than fast-track the latest challenge to Obamacare, the Supreme Court punted past the 2020 election. And while that appears to be a win for the so-called Trump administration, it puts Trump's 2016 lies about "terrific healthcare at a fraction of the cost and it's going to be so easy" on the front burner for 2020. [clmediameta nid=127951] Politico gets this wrong: The outcome means Trump will face less pressure to articulate an Obamacare replacement plan during the campaign. Republicans failed to agree on an Obamacare replacement when they had complete control of the federal government in the first two years of Trump's presidency, and they haven’t come up with a new plan since then. A health care proposal developed by Trump's Medicare chief Seema Verma was nixed last summer over her colleagues' concerns it would have actually strengthened Obamacare rather than replace it. Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach gets this ...
