By now, you pretty much expect everything said by any representative of the Trump administration is going to be the dumbest f*cking thing you have heard since the last thing said by a member of the Trump administration, but they just won’t learn their lesson. On Monday, Vice President Mike Pence — a guy who creepily calls his wife “Mother” — asked Americans to call their representatives about Trumpcare.
“This is the moment,” he says. “Now is the time.”
Pence on healthcare: “We are very close … this is the moment, now is the time.” Asks for Americans to call their elected officials. (!)

You know what you should never do with a bill that is polling so low that if it was human and percentages were ages Ted Nugent would write a song about double-teaming it with a cop? Ask people to weigh in. You should never ask people to weigh in. But Mike Pence opened up that can of worms.
Trumpcare is the least popular bill in three decades, with a recent USA today poll finding that only 12% of Americans support the Senate plan — and based on the reaction to Pence’s request on Twitter, people are listening to him. He’s also going to hate what’s happening:
Imagine how far your head must be up your own ass if you think it’s a good idea to ask Americans to call about a bill polling in the teens

I’ll call my elected officials, but I don’t think Mikey will like what I tell them.

I’ve called my Senators repeatedly but I’m sure Ted Cruz and John Cornyn are ignoring my concerns about their horseshit bill.

I’m not sure this will accomplish what you want it to @VP. Nobody wants your awful health care bill. And we’ll make sure our Senators know!

The Trump administration is either oblivious or doesn’t care that this tax cut for the rich thinly disguised as a health care bill. Our money is on the latter. After all, Republicans are currently scrambling to buy stock in health insurers, all of whom stand to profit from being able to bilk customers by gouging prices for people with preexisting conditions and all of the other terrible things the Republican plan will let them do.
