Fun fact - did you know your eyes always see your nose but your brain mostly just ignores it. Bet you can't stop seeing it now can you? Big Grin

I bet it affects binocular vision to some extent. But we are used to it. If you get Abe Lincoln's nose and deep sockets, it might become more apparent.

Don't bother, it's not worth it. I just found that the "expert" who is in charge of developing this rather consequential undertaking doesn't understand the fundamental concept behind insurance funny as all fuck. In a morbid sorta way.

I knew Paul Ryan as vile but not dumb. This is eye opening.

"Higher-income Americans could pay fewer taxes, get more tax benefits. The legislation would eliminate two taxes that Obamacare levied on the wealthy to help pay for the law. Nearly everyone in the Top 1%, who earn more than $774,000 a year, would enjoy a hefty tax cut, averaging $33,000, according to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center. Those in the Top 0.1% would get an average tax cut of about $197,000.”
Some smooth-talking administration lawyer was saying on TV this morning that this is not Trump's total tax plan, it is just a side effect of the health care bill. But -- and trust the administration on this!! -- over the next year or two, taken as a whole, there will not be tax breaks for the wealthy. Really. Honest.

What I don't get is how some worker can vote republican or conservative at all. Its blatantly obvious that they only give a big fuck you and a saturated belch in the general direction of working people. Same goes for Dump. Didn't they notice on which party ticket he was running or were his racist slurs sufficient to get them hooked and to hold still for the sordid lead pipe treatment?

I think they mostly believe the trickle down economics idea. The golden boy will usher in a golden era for them.

Trouble is, the golden boy is really orange Blink

Much of it is due to the right-wing and alt-right media (Fox, Brietbart, Limbaugh, etc etc) that continue to spew lies as truth. Goebbels (I think it was Goebbels) said something like, "Tell lies often enough and people will start believing them as truth." (The quote is something like that; I'm too lazy to look it up at the moment.)

Given that the conservative mind is predispositioned to respond to fear* more than being rational (which is why they are also more likely to both make up fake news and believe it**), they are more likely to believe those lies and respond accordingly.

** Studies show conservatives are more likely to think false information about threats are credible and Why conservatives might be more likely to fall for fake news

You know what trickles down? Diarrhea. That's what they get. But only if the super rich overfed themselves on tax payers dollars.

It is not a mystery at all.
