His plan to eliminate my federal pension COLA was just announced as part of his FY 2018 budget proposal. There were other proposed changes too (e.g., high 3 years would be replaced by high 5 years) but none would affect me as I am retiring this year at the end of FY 2017.

Then he stood behind a monstrosity POS bill, personally helping to push it through the House, that will effectively end all health insurance for me and millions of other Americans, and could cost the lives of some people very near and dear to me if it stands. And then he giddily celebrated that impending loss of healthcare of millions of Americans in the Rose Garden. It was shameful.

Is that enough to warrant how Trump has personally affected my life, OP?
He has only been in office FOUR MONTHS. The community organizer had 8 bleepin years to get an Affordable Plan out there and lookie what happened. I'm willing to give the man time.

Yes, this. He and the rest of the GOP (Grifting Obstructionist Plutocrats) have caused me, and many other people, a lot of anxiety about whether or not we'll have health insurance in 2018 and beyond. They are playing with people's lives just so they can undo whatever the black guy did. Despicable.

He made a deal to hurt democracy with a hostile foreign power. That is enough for any patriot, how do you overlook that ?

And each and every day there has been lies, failures, incompetence and broken promises. Again, even before throwing his hat in the ring, trump was a well-known and admitted lifelong fraud, liar, cheat and swindler. What could possibly go wrong electing such a sleazy, infantile narcissist to the highest office in the land?

...and was obstructed every step of the way. having to modify the ACA over and over until it lost its teeth, to please the GOP in Congress.

That's super for you. Are you expecting him to suddenly grow a brain and a conscience?

I believe that confuses thinking someone a jackass with hating them. Distinctly different things, he's not worth the energy hate requires.

He said he had a wonderful health plan that would cover everyone and be affordable. He made that promise LONG BEFORE he got into the office. And he had absolutely nothing. Not one single idea of his own. NOT ONE.

So he pushed through a POS bill that he didn't even read, because he doesn't really care about healthcare for Americans. That, it turns out, was just another of his many, many lies.

He lied. Plain and simple. Refute that if you can.
