I was kinda getting concerned about KSA’s failure thus far to slaughter AAAAALLL the children of Yemen yet - but the president’s going to veto!

Pro-life presidents are the best. #ThanksTrump

“US Senate to hold vote to block arms deal with Saudi Arabia”…
It’s such a wonderful feeling to know I can never go on hajj because I’ve trashed Saudi Arabia and MbS so much on Twitter.

Much ra7ma. Wow ummah. Very mutadayyin.
Thomas Friedman would be allowed to do hajj before me.

1/ OK so here we are preparing for Trump’s primetime address from the Oval Office. I think it’s important to look back on how we got here and analyze Trump’s strategy. If you’re like me, you wanted Trump to do this on day one and every day since. It’s been hard to be patient
2/ It’s important to know that Trump always plays the long game and as every great strategist he doesn’t move all his chips in until the right moment. (Keep this in mind when you fear Trump will never hold people accountable for the corruption in 2016.)
3/ It only makes sense that this strategy and the timing around it was discussed and decided on going back to at least the transition. So as they sat around that table, why would they pick this option? Because it gave them a guaranteed win. That’s right, 100% certainty of a wall.

Hey Twitter fam.
Me and The Wife have had a tough day, but I want to thank all of you for your immense kindness to us.
I have said repeatedly on here that reaching out to people--strangers--who are struggling is the best of us.
You all are the best.
I'm grateful for your support.
So I have a new series of tests to go through.
More specialists because of "co-morbidities" (confluence of things that can kill you).
More fun times with my exorbitant health insurance ($1,978.10 per month for an HMO--#ThanksTrump!) and the dreaded "prior authorization."
The plan is to keep living, writing, finish the two books that are overdue to the publisher (thanks for my fab editors) and keep loving The Wife who has loved me since we first met on the 26 bus on our way to our all girls high school.

It's a good plan.
I hope you'll support me.

Hours of my work day and my very limited energy have been spent fighting with my health insurance company about my coverage.

As of January, my freaking premium now costs $1,978.10 PER MONTH.

This is what Trump did to sick people & everyone applauded last night at the #SOTU
I have no idea who has this kind of money but it's more than I make.

The sicker you are, the more expensive your plan.And there's no option because the #GOP allowed health insurance companies (who just got a huge tax cut) to charge whatever they want for coverage.
So The Wife, who is the same age as I am and who has the exact same plan, pays $239.00 a month for hers.

This is America right now for sick people. I would qualify for #Medicaid expansion if I lived in a different state, but I do not.

This is madness. Just madness.

This former tax attorney is about to go on a #twitterstorm about this #BillionairesFirst tax program & how it is contrary to our values 1/12
#BillionairesFirst tax plan eliminates the adoption deduction. There are 125K adoptions a year that cost about 20K a year. 2/12
#Sec1308 eliminates the deduction of medical expenses. Until #MedicareForAll we need this deduction. 19% of Americans used this in 2015 3/12

.@somuchweirdness suggests I explain how Trump stopping CSR payments actually effects ppl.

Because I always listen, will tweet that soon.1/
CSR payments reduce the size of deducts & co-pays for low income exchange consumers.

Insurers who participate must continue 2 pay them.2/
In the remainder of 2017, insurers will pay them as required-- approx $2 billion+-- but govt won't pay them back as promised. 3/
