Bob "liberal" Woodward - voice of reason


  • Garbage Dossier should not have been party of an intelligence briefing. 
  • Information should never have been leaked. 
  • Former intelligence leaders should not be saying the things about Trump that they have.
  • Current intelligence leaders should have but didn't condemn such talk.

After 8 years of Obama did you really expect anything other than a politicized intelligence community?

Especially when an outsider like Trump who offends the sensibilities of the Washington establishment gets elected president?

PNC said...

Wait... so we're back to leaks being bad again?

It's so hard to keep track of where you Republicans stand in the age of Trump.

If Ted Cruz hadn't been such an obnoxious weirdo, he would be President elect.

You mean if Ted Cruz hadn't spent half of the campaign acting like Trump's bitch...

I just learned Trump will swear to the oath on Ronald Reagan's bible. I sure DO hope it's fireproof. 😂😂😂😂

Trump declined to reveal specifics in the telephone interview late Saturday with The Washington Post, but any proposals from the incoming president would almost certainly dominate the Republican effort to overhaul federal health policy as he prepares to work with his party’s congressional majorities.

Trump’s plan is likely to face questions from the right, after years of GOP opposition to further expansion of government involvement in the health-care system, and from those on the left, who see his ideas as disruptive to changes brought by the Affordable Care Act that have extended coverage to tens of millions of Americans.

In addition to his replacement plan for the ACA, also known as Obamacare, Trump said he will target pharmaceutical companies over drug prices.

“They’re politically protected, but not anymore,” he said of pharmaceutical companies.

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better.”resident-elect.
Donald Trump said in a weekend interview that he is nearing completion of a plan to replace President Obama’s signature health-care law with the goal of “insurance for everybody,” while also vowing to force drug companies to negotiate directly with the government on prices in Medicare and Medicaid.

The devil is in the details. He declined to discuss the details. Reading between the lines, it is in effect, as close to a single payer system that has ever come out from a Republican.

He also said "Trump said he expects Republicans in Congress to move quickly and in unison in the coming weeks on other priorities as well, including enacting sweeping tax cuts and beginning the building of a wall along the Mexican border.

Trump warned Republicans that if the party splinters or slows his agenda, he is ready to use the power of the presidency — and Twitter — to usher his legislation to passage." The interview was conducted on telephone.

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better.”his is almost the plans proposed by Bernie Sanders. The insurance companies will be required to work with Medicare and Medicaid. They would also require them to accept patients with pre existing conditions and that families would continue coverage until they are 26.

In affect, this is Obama Care with the improvements that may Democrats wanted to do, but they ran into a brick wall from Paul Ryan and the "freedom caucus".

He threatened to use Twitter to apply pressure on the Republicans who would not cooperate. This would not be part of a budget resolution, so it would require 60% votes in the Senate. He said that it's not a single payer system, but in affect, that's what it is. He is a very different form of Republican.

PNH good to see you again, confused as always and never answering a question so you voted for who , by name for President, come on be proud.

Permanente Senior Advantage, maximum co pay for $ 4,400/year. Costs a cool $150/ month. $5.00 doctor appointment Kaiser. My transplant will be the $4,400. No insurance like you want, it would probably be $500,000.


HB let us know that a bill of $162,000 would have "bankrupt his family" knowing that bill was paid thru Medicaid and now we might be on the hook for another $500,000, with no ROI.

President Trump in under 5 days, how much damage can the sitting Golfer cause during this time.

guys, PNC is the poster known as "proud neocon" if memory serves.

not pnh.

carry on.

I would have said the entire campaign. It reminded me of Dr Smith saying "Evil knows evil ..." in Lost in Space. Which fits pretty well with "obnoxious weirdo" also. Tactically stupid, letting Trump roll back the Republican nominees thinking he would win in the end.

Clinton had a decent chance against Cruz also, but she'd have probably lost.

Yes CH, leaking an investigation of bullshit rumors is what the CIA does in a propaganda campaign to destabilize foreign nations. The question is why are "former" intelligence officials operating this way here in the USA, and what do they expect to happen?

If the "garbage dossier" is part of an intelligence briefing, why isn't it classified? Is there an expectation that President Trump won't or can't look into it?

The argument you seem to be making is that the CIA is actually engaging in a propaganda campaign to destabilize our own government, with explicit help from former officials.

it's simple.

lifetime civil servants are usually lifetime liberals. government employment is all they could ever handle. they'd starve in the private sector. and the election of trump means their ox is being gored. so, former or active, they remain parasites on the system and real or perceived, trump is a threat to their livelihood.

As usual, you are talking out your trump.......LOL

I am arguing that it has that appearance. Having no knowledge of actual CIA operations, I couldn't tell you if or how well appearance reflects the actual fact.

If I had to guess, the culprits would be disgruntled elements of the intelligence community rather than an active operation.
