President Trump is on one of his fabulist adventures. Bill Barr’s Mueller summary gave Trump the ammunition he needed to stick it to the Democrats. The Trumpster is on top of the world now that he believes the Mueller investigation can’t hurt him. He knows his loyal Trumpians think he won another battle in the Washington swamp. His supporters claim he won’t stop giving them more of that Trump political magic.
Most Americans want to see the full Mueller report. But Attorney general Bill Barr won’t release the report without redacting some of the juicy parts in the report. Those parts claim Trump and his campaign did collude with Russians in 2016. Congressman Jerrold Nadler, the chair of the Congressional Oversight Committee wants to force Barr to release the Mueller report without all those black marker lines. But Barr won’t do that, according to sources inside the Department of Justice. Mr. Barr said he would send the redacted report to Congress in mid-April.
The Republicans thought the Barr summary would be enough to keep Trump focused. Senators Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell thought Trump would keep his exoneration in front of the public as long as he could. But in true Trump fashion, he changed his campaign game plan. Trump wants to officially burn Obamacare to the ground. And that news sent McConnell and Graham into re-election panic mode.
According to a Republican Texas judge, Obamacare is unconstitutional. When the Republicans changed Obamacare in 2018, the change made the nine-year-old Affordable Healthcare Act unconstitutional. That ruling is in the hands of an appellate court right now. Trump’s lawyers asked the court to send Obamacare to the healthcare graveyard. If that happens, millions of Americans will lose their health insurance.
But as Politico.com explains, if Trump wins the appeal, the case will go to the Supreme Court and legal experts think Trump will lose that battle. Trump told his voter base his healthcare plan would be better, cheaper, and cover pre-existing conditions even though Trump doesn’t have a formal healthcare plan.
Trump asked former HCA CEO Rick Scott to develop a new plan. Scott, the new Senator from Florida, left the healthcare industry to enter politics because his credibility in the healthcare industry was under attack. But in Trump’s world, Scott is the best healthcare professional on the planet.
Mitch McConnell won’t touch the healthcare issue this time around. McConnell knows the Democrats won that battle during the mid-term elections. He wants Trump to go it alone in this political battle. And most Republicans think McConnell is right.
