Orchestrated Chaos

It is well known that major powers that are responsible for orchestrating global chaos. By their very deeds, they have proven to be incapable of feeling compassion for poor people suffering. They have created a system of Geopolitical upheaval, mayhem, and pandemonium that benefits a few while murdering and ripping millions of innocent men, women, and children from their families, cultures, lands.

Many leaders in developing countries have been convinced by arms merchants and war mongers that they must fear their neighbors and sometimes even their brothers. Consequently, those leaders end up spending millions of dollars on artilleries, guns, bombs, tanks, warships, fighter jets, and other killing machines while their citizens go un-educated, un-housed and un-fed.

There are individuals on both side of the political divide that have said that the ACA need adjustments; however, most Republicans are hell bent on “throwing out the baby with bathwater”!
President Trump has aggressively and forcefully thrust the Republican control to Congress to push out the GOP bill, the American Health Care Act. The world is now aware that Trump and the U.S. House of Representative were unsuccessfully in moving their Health Care Act forward.
Trump’s approval rating hobbling around 37% and GOP’s American Health Care Act approval rating standing at 17% was not enough to move Republican on the far right or those on the center-right to vote for the GOP healthcare bill.

America, The RICHEST Country on Earth Is “Leading From Behind” In Providing Healthcare For All Its’ People!

When it comes to the provision of “Universal Health Care” we are either too SELFISH or too STUPID to understand the TRUE VALUE of providing HealthCare for All Americans. Our political leaders have the best healthcare that the people’s monies can buy. Do they think that the American people are less worthy of protections from unforeseen medical risk than other in developed countries?
The June 28, 2012, passage of President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act,” better known as Obamacare,” has pushed the “Obstructionist Republicans” even further out of their “Secret Closet.” Many of the closet obstructionists are the “Same Group of Republicans” who held a “Secret Meeting” on President Obama’s inauguration day, January 20, 2009, to design a plan to “Bring Down” President Barack Obama before he got started.
Republicans have voted 52 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). They have used every trick in their arsenal to repeal the Affordable Care Act in its entirety. They have relentless worked to chip away at the law by targeting individual provisions, withholding funding, and undermining implementation.
