Water Hole: No Running Water on Navajo Nation Reservation

 

Can you believe that?

 

$ 600 billion a year for the military and US citizens don't have  even a communal well.

 

How hard can it be, how much can it cost, to drill a few wells?

 

Would it cost hundreds of thousands of dollars?

 

This has been going on for what ..... 100 years? The US government can't drill one well per decade?

Republicans may have killed Obamacare already - by removing the mandate, millions of greedy GOPers will opt out and the insurance industry told us back when the program was being developed a mandate was necessary to make covering pre-existing conditions affordable for the people who would use Obamacare.

 

GOPers ranted and raved for 6 years they would kill health insurance for 34 million Americans. They failed to do this openly, so the Orange Toad will kill it by stealth the same way GOPers destroyed the War on Poverty programs.

 

Any Republican who used their opposition to PPACA to feed their base for all those years simply cannot be believed to have changed just because some of that base now realizes what will happen to their health care without PPACA.

Interesting topic that illustrates the Repubs can't discuss anything about anything other than their talking points.  Fact is, for two years Repubs have controlled the House, the Senate and the WH and other than their destructive tax cuts, have little to show for their legislative agenda.  McSally should be complaining about her own party.  FACT, there was bi-partisan support for an immigration bill earlier this year, but the racists in the White House and so-called Freedom caucus determined it wasn't racist enough.  McSally should be whining to her party leaders; not to her base.

Arizona Republican Senate Candidate Says She Doesn’t Want to Talk Health Care—Just “Things That Matter”

 

Martha McSally said she’d rather talk about the caravan.

 

Less than two weeks before Election Day, Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) has joined the the chorus of Republican incumbents who are now claiming that they want to protect preexisting

conditions despite voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. But when asked about her position by a local news station, the Arizona incumbent made it clear that, well, health care doesn’t actually matter to voters.

 

“Can we please talk about the things that matter to most Arizona voters instead of repeating the Arizona Democratic Party press releases?” McSally shot back at a CBS 5 Phoenix reporter. The interview comes on the heels of the release of McSally’s latest television ad, suggesting that the candidate, who voted for a bill to repeal of Obamacare in 2017 that would have weakened rules to help those with preexisting conditions, was committed to protecting them. How she plans on doing that, however, is unclear given her attempt to shift the interview to immigration policy.

 

“This is ridiculous, honestly. Do you have anything to talk about like the caravan or job opportunities?”

 

This isn’t the first time that McSally, who is in one of the most competitive Senate races in the country, has shrugged off an issue that didn’t align with one of her key talking points. In an October debate, she punted a question about climate change in a similar manner, saying  “I mean we do have to address the issues of climate, and water is so important for Arizona, it’s our lifeline.” But, she said, “we have to talk about the military! We have to talk about our veterans! We haven’t had any opportunity!” Instead of discussing either, she launched into an attack against opponent Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s (D-Ariz.) nearly two-decades old comments protesting the United State’s involvement in the Middle East.
