an important but often overlooked point.

my and your insurance helps pay for people who don't have insurance and don't pay their medical bills. those people are free riders. they actually do have insurance--me and you and everyone else who has a policy. the obamacare mandate requiring everyone to pay for a policy addresses this flaw in the system.

is there any other way to address free riders? hospitals aren't going to start kicking out the uninsured, are they?
One way is to "force" everyone to purchase insurance, maybe by imposing a financial penalty or a tax on people who don't. That way no one is a free rider.

Attendees said that Trump seemed intensely focused on getting a bill passed and is acutely aware that action on healthcare will lead to future momentum for tax reform and infrastructure investment. He did, however, leave left some senators with the impression that he didn’t fully understand the specifics of disagreement among Republicans. He told the senators that he wanted a deal and he understood all their concerns but made clear the details mattered less than the conclusion: A win for him and his party.

Cornhusker kickback?
For months, Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have been pushing the Trump administration to expand the number of foreign guest-worker visas issued to help businesses in their states prepare for their summer peak. The two senators are also considered crucial votes on the health care bill currently floundering in Congress.

So career staff at the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security took note last week when senior political officials ordered them to immediately draft a rule that would increase the number of H-2B visas, specifically mentioning innkeepers and fisheries in Maine and Alaska, according to three people with knowledge of the discussions.

The guy on the right eating up whatever shit flow is spilling out of Dumps pie hole is the star of the show, but why does Pence always look like he's peeking into the girl's locker room whenever he's within smelling distance of the guy? Man, I want to smack the malignant brown stain off that fucker's "for sale" sign he calls a nose.

Buzz Aldrin is the star of every show, because he's Buzz Aldrin. Maybe he was making a political statement, maybe he had to pee (he's 87). He's still Buzz fucking Aldrin. To infinity and sad!

Oh that's Buzz. Thanks, I didn't get the context. Hilarious.

“We know what this is, space. That’s all it has to say: space,” Trump said as he prepared to sign his executive order. He then turned to Aldrin and asked, “There’s a lot of room out there, right?”

Have we ever had a deeper thinker?

Sure, if you think moderate Syrian rebels fighting vs. Assad = ISIS then, yeah.

Or, and this is a big, OR, like the rest of the factual world thinks this is just another instance of pandering to the desires of Putin? Then you might need to dig a little deeper than Drudge Report or RT or whatever shit factory puts these ideas in your head..

Rebels last to find out. While the president made the decision a month ago, it was up to Reuters to break the news to some rebel leaders, who hadn’t been told. "We heard nothing about this," one Syrian leader said.

“We definitely feel betrayed,” said Gen. Tlass al-Salameh of Osoud al-Sharqiya, a group affiliated with the Free Syrian Army, told other Post reporters. Salameh and his deputies say that they have received CIA support to fight the Islamic State in eastern Syria but that they have also fought battles against pro-government forces. “It feels like we are being abandoned at a very difficult moment,” Salameh said. “It feels like they only wanted to help when we were fighting [the Islamic State]. Now that we are also fighting the regime, the Americans want to withdraw.”

This is a great quote...
Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates had no illusions about the end goal of the Saudis. The Saudis always want to “fight the Iranians to the last American,” he told his French counterpart in 2010. Since then, the Saudi appetite for a U.S.-Iran war has only grown.

The Republican president has a job approval rating around 40 percent. The GOP has an unfavorability rating around 56 percent. And Republicans trail Democrats by nine points in an average of "generic ballot" polls.

All of which makes it notable that the Republican National Committee is trouncing the Democratic National Committee when it comes to raising money, especially from small donors.

The numbers are striking. In June, the RNC raised $13.5 million to the DNC's $5.5 million.

For 2017 so far, the RNC has raised $75.4 million to the DNC's $38.2 million.

The RNC started the year with $25.3 million in cash on hand. Now it has $44.7 million. The DNC started the year with $10.5 in cash on hand. Now, that has fallen to $7.5 million.

As of June 30, the RNC reported $0 in debt. The DNC reported $3.3 million in debt.

A look inside the numbers is even worse for the DNC. Looking at collections from small donors — that is, those who contributed less than $200 — the RNC raised $10.5 million in the months of May and June. The DNC raised $5.3 million from small donors in the same time period.

Donald Trump has been asked to make a ‘dummy’ State visit to Britain this year to show he can avoid embarrassing the Queen. He has been invited to come for brief talks with Theresa May – but with none of the Royal pomp and circumstance he wanted. The decision will be hailed as a victory by nearly two million people who signed a petition calling for the trip to be downgraded to spare the Queen’s blushes because of Trump’s ‘misogyny and vulgarity’.

“We won and won. So when they said, there is no way to victory, there is no way to 270. I went to Maine four times because it’s one vote, and we won,” Trump said. “But we won – one vote. I went there because I kept hearing we’re at 269. But then Wisconsin came in. Many, many years – Michigan came in.”
This is from Trump's speech to the Boy Scouts of America. ](*,)

You can't make this shit up.
