    I'm sure there were some white papers or plans floating around at various thinktanks. Most of the ideas have been around for decades though … expanded HSAs, selling insurance across state lines, etc. They never really energized anyone. I think they just figured "one of those nerds like Paul Ryan will come up with something."

    No border wall, no healthcare plan, no Hillary Clinton in jail, no pandemic response playbook. So much winning!

    I thought he released his healthcare plan a week or two ago when he told people to start wearing masks.

    It's all part of the conservative playbook:

    1) Lie to get people to vote you into office.
    2) Appoint conservative judges to rule in your favor on cases because the things you really want to do are extremely unpopular and would be a death certificate for your members if they ever had to actually vote on those policies.
    3) Do virtually nothing while you have complete control of the government.
    4) Blame Democrats for failure to get anything done.
    5) Rinse and repeat.

    That's exactly what Trump did in 2016 and 2018 and is doing now. He's selling people on some great healthcare plan so that they support him and reelect him while he dismantles anything currently in place and then when it's never replaced as that was never in the plan he will just say it was because Democrats blocked it all.

    I read his healthcare plan. It was only 5 words: Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV. Just remember those 5 words, and you will be A-OK.

    Funny thing is, none of those words were right. The test was "Face, velvet, church, Daisy, red".

    Don't know about the whole plan, but the preliminary one for seniors goes something like this...

    But Brian Wilson's Smile was promised for even longer and when it came out it was, you know, it was OK. Maybe trump just needs even more time, like until January 20 2021?

    If you prefer no plan for things I certainly see why you voted for Trump. So far he's delivered mightily.

    I'm on record as saying the ACA was terrible legislation and the biggest blemish on the Obama administration. If you and I agree it was a pile of shit, offering a better alternative should be relatively straight forward. But the GOP has literally offered nothing in 3+ years. What a joke of a political party at this point. Demand better, my friend.
