Mais vraiment, qu'est-ce qui pourrait mal se passer d'ici l'élection présidentielle de novembre?
Sur #Trump et #Obama, dérouler mon thread ici:
2) Ce "basculement" des relations entre #Trump et son prédécesseur #Obama depuis vendredi, qui traduit 1 division haineuse entre 2 nations US et met en doute 1 règlement du conflit normé par les élections, est 1 suite logique de l'antagonisme depuis 15 ans de 2 projets politiques
3) Barack #Obama a voulu, dès 2004 et son discours fondateur de Boston, réconcilier la nation US, en étant l'un des 1ers à percevoir les ferments de division induits par le recours au tribalisme partisan comme élément de surmobilisation électorale...nytimes.com/2016/07/27/mag…

Barack #Obama déclare donc bel et bien la guerre à D.#Trump en laissant fuiter cette évaluation de sa gestion du #COVIDー19 : 1 "désastre absolument chaotique". Aussi important politiquement qu'inhabituel pour 1 ex-président envers son successeur. thehill.com/homenews/admin…
2) D'abord sur les modalités, il n'y a pas de doute. #Obama a laissé ses anciens collaborateurs auxquels s'adressait le coup de fil privé pour les encourager à rejoindre #Biden confirmer la bande audio- où il accable #Trump qui avait fuité sur Yahoo News. Rien d'accidentel donc.
3) Par ailleurs, les propos de B.#Obama sont d'1 gravité extrême pour un ex-président, gardien de l'Union, de surcroît qui a été élu puis réélu avec 1 confortable majorité populaire. Obama parle de l'abandon des poursuites contre #Flynn, ex-conseiller sécurité nationale de #Trump

@smc429 @kaitlancollins @realDonaldTrump 1/ The other side also sold stock. Ask @SpeakerPelosi what her husband did in the same time frame. And @SenFeinstein did also. The media conveniently leaves out the fact that both sides have crooks. We need people of integrity.
@smc429 @kaitlancollins @realDonaldTrump @SpeakerPelosi @SenFeinstein 2/ since when giving “tide over” money stealing our money? I would say it is just the opposite. @BarackObama never gave us any help. His policies kept us in recession for 8 years!
@smc429 @kaitlancollins @realDonaldTrump @SpeakerPelosi @SenFeinstein @BarackObama 3/ Also, the @DNC was the group that passed #ObamaCare which effectively killed health care for self employed. A $10,000 Deductible and $1500 a month, means you spend $28,000/year before healthcare kicks in. Unless you are on welfare. Then it’s free.

1/ #Genius plan: @realDonaldTrump I have an idea to turn you into the USA hero of this worldwide #COVID medical crisis. All you need to do is undo the executive orders you have signed intended to cripple #ObamaCare.
@realDonaldTrump 2/ Then with one sweeping emergency executive order you force all the remaining states to accept the #MedicaidExpansion. Voila. All people have health coverage and you can call it #TrumpCare.
@realDonaldTrump 3/ Everyone will love you and the feathers of the Insurance Companies and big Pharmaceutical Companies will not be ruffled too much.

#stockmarketcrash @POTUS @GenFlynn Trump and team are breaking up the monopolies and extracting the fiat money from our economy! All expertly planned. Have faith; there is no better business person to lead us through this transition than our fearless President!

OK peeps - buckle up for the TRUE story about #JoeBiden's notorious 2018 trip to my #michigan district MI-06). (Includes great #LizWarren cameo!) #michiganprimary

PLS RT @briebriejoy @DrDooleyMD @AbshirDSM also @sunrisemvmt @NaomiAKlein (for Fred Upton enviro tie-in)
The NYT "reported": "There is no evidence Mr. Biden was motivated...by anything other than sincere admiration, stemming from Mr. Upton’s role in crafting the 21st Century Cures Act after the death of Mr. Biden’s elder son, Beau, from cancer in 2015." nytimes.com/2019/01/23/us/…
Here come the facts!

1. Biden collected a $200K check for that speech. (How sincere!) It also took place during a VERY close House race in one of the narrowest-red districts (R +1) in Michigan (MI-06).

“If health economists were in charge of the health system, not a lot would change,” which tells you just about all you need to know about most health economists in the United States. @afrakt ow.ly/bJO030qj6KX
@afrakt More constructively...the responses to this survey's normative questions confirm something that I’ve observed anecdatally: there is a mountainous structural ideological-bias problem in #HealthPolicy.

cc: @KosaliSimon, @cawley_john
@afrakt @KosaliSimon @cawley_john The health policy professions skew left, because federal and state health policy skew left; thus the set of individuals who select into these professions skews toward those whose ideas concern *how* government should allocate resources/regulate rather than *whether* it should.

1. I may be speaking heresy but IMO the reason that @JoeBiden is not getting traction is because he appears slavishly tied to #ObamaCare. In 2013, because I'm self employed, I was cast in the Obamacare rate setting pit of hell. But I fought it and got my own policy. #HoganCare.
2. It was an odd time. I had my own census taker to hung around bothering me. The local dominant health insurance carrier brought in a specialist from South Africa to deal with me. The pitch the Democrats gave me was that it as just the first step. An anchor on which to build
3. the system. They shamed me with the memory of FDR so I shut up and didn't risk torching the ACA. Joe needs to have a better idea than continuing an admittedly flawed program. The party can shut folks like me up but the economics of health care swung the midterms remains key.

A THREAD ‘honoring’ the man and legacy of BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

THREAD: Let's examine all the possible ways this @ebruenig tweet represents #FakeNews -- and one of the sillier arguments for #SinglePayer I've heard in a long time... 1/
@ebruenig First of all, @ebruenig said she's uninsured because she switched jobs from @washingtonpost to @nytimes -- but she didn't say exactly why. It's possible that both @washingtonpost and @nytimes don't offer health coverage to their employees, but I doubt it... 2/
@ebruenig @washingtonpost @nytimes If she had Exchange coverage while at @washingtonpost, she could potentially qualify for a special enrollment period, if her income dropped to such an extent that she now qualifies for #Obamacare subsidies... 3/

@MeghanMcCain ‘s father never “earned” his seat. He trashed 3 MILLION dollar aircraft (in Spain, The Gulf, & on the USS Forestal, killing 134 men) then DISOBEYED ORDERS after only 2 months in Nam, flying over Hanoi, getting shot down; which earned him time in the Hanoi Hilton.
3/ He parlayed these disasters into a 30 yr career in politics built on faux “hero” status. I agree with #Trump “I like people who weren’t captured.” Full comment here: politico.com/story/2015/07/…:

The #ACA/#Obamacare has been law for a decade. It is not and has never been insurance. It provides for the healthcare marketplace where people can shop their states' private insurance companies for affordable plans. It also provides tax credit subsidies for those plans.
The #ACA also expanded #Medicaid to cover more low income people. And created coverage for the #Medicare "donut hole." The law also stipulates that being female must be covered (it was not before the ACA) and that women must not pay more than men for the same plan, like before.
The #ACA also requires insurers to cover #PreExistingConditions like #cancer or #diabetes. The ACA charged the states with providing access to health insurance for low income people via #Medicaid.

THREAD: Let's unpack the inaccurate and/or misleading statements in this @AOC tweet, most of which have to do with the #SpecialPrivileges provided to Members of Congress and their staffs.

Follow/RT for further details... 1/
First off, @AOC claims that she’s buying coverage “off the Exchange.” That statement is either inaccurate - perhaps she meant “from the Exchange” rather than “off the Exchange” - or outright false. 2/
.@AOC can’t buy coverage away from the Exchange in DC because @DCHealthLink prohibits it.

This screenshot shows that my former client eHealthInsurance doesn’t offer plans in DC - because it can’t. 3/

1/ President #Trump wordt in de Nederlandse mainstream media continu weggezet als een slechte domme onbetrouwbare leugenaar, die tot weinig anders in staat is dan liegen. Nooit wordt u eerlijk geïnformeerd over wat hij allemaal heeft bereikt tijdens zijn presidentschap tot nu toe
2/ Een overzicht v/d successen van #Trump.

Sinds hij aantrad als president:
🔵 werden ca. 4 miljoen nieuwe banen gecreëerd in de #USA;
🔵 hebben meer Amerikanen een betaalde baan dan ooit eerder in de geschiedenis;
🔵 is economische groei in #USA vrijwel continu 3 à 4%
3/ Sinds #Trump aantrad als president:
🔵 werden 400.000 banen voor fabrieksarbeiders gecreëerd in de #USA;
🔵 groeide werkgelegenheid in fabrieken harder dan gedurende de afgelopen 3 decennia;
🔵 is het consumentenvertrouwen van burgers gestegen tot het hoogste punt in 18 jaar.

How is it POSSIBLE that nearly 10yrs in people still don't know the #ACA and #Obamacare are the same thing and still think ACA/Obamacare is insurance when it isn't?
The only insurance in the US comes from the healthcare industry.
Medicare, Medicaid and ACA only provide subsidies.
If your argument is you want to keep paying extravagant health insurance premiums rather than have the government subsidize your health insurance payment, you are too wealthy. The rest of us need help desperately. Medical bankruptcy is more than half of all bankruptcies.
My health insurance premium is a staggering $1,978.10 per month for an HMO. That is unsustainable. My wife has to work three jobs to help pay for it. If I lived in Canada I'd pay that PER YEAR. In England & France, nothing.
Let's stop lying about healthcare costs & who benefits.

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

This is a scheme in which the Obama administration collected less in taxes from health insurers than they were required to do under the Affordable Care Act, created a plan to pay insurers selling policies on the Exchange considerably more than originally projected,
and stiffed the United States Treasury on the money it was supposed to receive from the taxes. This diversion took place in spite of a statute that explicitly prohibited it. The consequence of the diversion of funds was to enrich insurers.

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

The GOP is still determined to end access to #healthcare for millions of Americans like me with #cancer and other life-threatening #PreExistingConditions.

Trump joins #antivaxxers to attack #Obamacare thinkprogress.org/trump-anti-vax… via @thinkprogress
Also, before the #ACA (also known as #Obamacare, which is a law not insurance) became law, women paid twice as much as men for health insurance, pregnancy was a #PreExistingCondition, mammograms and PAP tests were out-of-pocket expenses and 60M Americans were uninsured.
The #ACA has expanded #Medicaid in many states, created the healthcare marketplace which shows people a range of options within their states for affordable healthcare & it has saved millions of lives.
ACA will still be law after #M4A because it's essential healthcare protection.

@Priyanka_Dayal What is confirmed here is that @UHC “put the bottom line above [Kate Weissman] as a patient.” @Priyanka_Dayal, you have helped place health payers on notice. Denials for proton therapy and violations of ERISA will not stand. The status quo is unsustainable and #change is coming.
@Priyanka_Dayal @UHC Very smart person right here 👇🏻
@Priyanka_Dayal @UHC Most painful abt certain aspects of the piece is attempt to provide legitimacy to insurance practices that violate the law & deny millions of valid health claims. Lending credence to hackneyed industry arguments is, to quote a federal judge, “immoral and barbaric.” #protontherapy

Prosecutors didn't even find "one bad sentence" in the "millions of pages" the @WhiteHouse turned over to special counsel, @POTUS, on the phone, tells @seanhannity, calling the investigation an attempted "illegal takeover" of the country.
"I was the most innocent human being," @POTUS tells @seanhannity.
"The end result is no collusion, no obstruction," declares @POTUS.

I am scheduled for my 3rd surgery since December on Thursday.
Please do me a favor and promise to call your reps and senators and tell them you support and need the #ACA/#Obamacare and they only have your vote if they reject Trump's efforts to kill it.
Here's a thread on why:
1/
Many Americans think the #ACA/#Obamacare is insurance.
It is not.
The #ACA is a law governing insurance companies & forcing them to cover women & people with #PreExistingConditions.
The #ACA also says women cannot be forced to pay more than men for insurance.
#ProtectOurCare
2/
The #ACA/#Obamacare also provides for children 26 and under to be covered under their parents' insurance plans.
The ACA also created the healthcare marketplace, which provides tax subsidies for those unable to pay full-price for health insurance.
