DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT IS A LOT LIKE OBAMACARE
To repeat – Donald Trump for President is a lot like Obamacare.
The basic concept of Obamacare – universal substantive health insurance coverage – is a good one.
But Obamacare as hastily written, without taking the time to properly and completely think it through – i.e. the Affordable Care Act (ACA) - is a convoluted mess. Its many flaws outweigh its benefits.
The concept of a Presidential candidate who is a successful businessman (not a lawyer or professional politician), a true Washington “outsider”, who speaks his/her mind, and is wealthy enough to self-finance his/her campaign so that he/she is not influenced by special interest campaign contributions, is a good one.
But Donald Trump is a self-absorbed, self-important buffoon who has no respect for anyone or anything but himself, and does not care for anyone or anything but himself. His only purpose in running for President - his only reason for doing anything - is to feed his undeservedly enormous ego. He is all ego and no character (actually he is a character, but has no character). As a businessman he consistently, and unapologetically, screws his investors, lenders, and sub-contractors.
Trump’s many, many, many, many flaws outweigh any possible benefit to his “outsider” and “financially independent” status.
The Affordable Care Act as written, like the US Tax Code, should be totally shredded and rewritten from scratch.
Donald Trump should be totally ignored as a Presidential candidate. If anything his candidacy should be treated as the joke that it, and he, is.
One last comment on Trump. Just because he is supposedly “self-financing” his campaign does not mean that, as a candidate, he cannot be bought. The very fact that he is self-financing means that candidate Donald Trump has been bought and paid for by egotist Donald Trump.
If, God forbid, the Donald does become President his main goal and motivation will be to do what is best for Donald Trump, regardless of how his actions may detrimentally affect the government or the American people.
So the bottom line is –
(1) totally rethink and rewrite Obamacare, and
(2) treat Donald Trump as the buffoon he is and totally ignore him as a Presidential candidate.
