YOUR DAILY DYSTOPIA | 2017.05.24

While popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп fumbles his way through his first overseas trip as President, House Speaker and Трамп regime lapdog Paul Ryan is stretching his wings as the Axios News Shapers event in Washington, D.C. Ryan told Mike Allen of Axios’ that he Donald Трамп is wrong about his assertion that FBI Director James Comey is a “nut job.”

“Yeah, I don’t agree with that,” Ryan told the crowd. Ryan also added, “I like Jim Comey.”

Aides say that Ryan will deny he disagreed with Трамп later this afternoon, and will plan on calling Comey a nut job himself tomorrow morning.

House Republicans leaders passed the American Health Care Act three weeks ago without waiting for the Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan agency responsible for scrutinizing legislation, to evaluate its effects. After the historic vote, the Republican Congress went to the White House and drank canned beer.

But today’s the day for the CBO to deliver its score on the latest version of the American Health Care Act. The last score from the CBO let the American people know that the AHCA would leave 24 million more people without insurance, and increase premiums for people, including 64-year-old Americans earning $26,500 or less, who would pay an additional $12,900 in premiums every year to purchase insurance.

Aides in Congress say that the Republicans plan to trash the CBO score, unless it’s favorable to their cause of removing health insurance from millions of Americans, in which case they plan to celebrate with more beer at the White House while the place is empty.

Speaking of hurting poor people by taking away benefits, the 2018 budget from the regime of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп promises $2 trillion in tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans, while taking away benefits from the poorest of them.

This includes $800 billion cuts to Medicaid, despite promises from Трамп in May of 2015, and on his website, that, “I’m not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I’m not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.” Trump officials have removed this statement from his website, but you can still read it on archive.org at – https://web.archive.org/web/20161130191040/https://www.donaldjtrump.com/media/why-donald-trump-wont-touch-your-entitlements

When asked whether his supporters will realize that he’s broken his promise, a White House aide cracked open a beer and said, “Hey, ask us in a week when he gets back, in the meantime, spread the word, party at the Oval Office, full kegs. $5 a head. Ted Nugent is playing at midnight.” Before anyone could ask a follow-up question, the phone hung up.
