Just after Republicans blew up the deficit by gifting the wealthy with tax cuts, they’ve decided to go after Medicare and Social Security. Republicans insisted that their tax cuts would “pay for themselves” and now, they want the rest of us to pay for them. Republicans, along with Donald Trump, have repeatedly tried to eradicate Obamacare, knowing full well that they have nothing viable to replace it with. The most popular piece of Obamacare contains protections for those with pre-existing conditions. Trump somehow took to Twitter to claim that Republicans support protecting pre-existing conditions, then went on to insist that it’s Democrats who want to “destroy your Medicare.”

“All Republicans support people with pre-existing conditions, and if they don’t, they will after I speak to them,” Trump tweeted. “I am in total support. Also, Democrats will destroy your Medicare, and I will keep it healthy and well!”

Trump was quickly fact-checked in real time on Twitter by PolitiFact.

“Digging into health care law, the challenge for Republicans is that so far, none of their proposals on pre-existing conditions match the iron-clad guarantees in #Obamacare,” PolitiFact tweeted to Trump.

PolitiFact notes that during Trump’s rallies, he has been telling his supporters that “pre-existing conditions will always be taken care of by us.” During one rally in Missippi, he blamed Democrats, saying, “they have no plan,” while ignoring that Democrats already voted for the Obamacare guarantees.

In short, they’re saying that Trump is lying.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
