Trump voters remorse

Postby Cadfael » Mon Jan 02, 2017 9:04 am

When you find a Trump voter wondering if they might have made a teensy tiny mistake, put it here.

COAL MINERS WORRY OBAMACARE REPEAL COULD MEAN LOSS OF BENEFITS
Neil Yonts, a Democrat and coal miner for 35 years initially supported Hillary Clinton, but ended up voting for Trump.

“May be a mistake,” says Yonts, “but, I heard him say he’d bring coal back.”

Yonts began reconsidering his votes after being diagnosed with black lung disease.

“When they eliminate the Obamacare they may just eliminate all the black lung program,” says Yonts. “It may all be gone. Don’t matter how many years you got.”

Three sentences in the Affordable Care Act made it easier for victims of Black Lung to get monthly federal benefits is they worked 15 years or more in the mines – and if they died the benefits automatically extended to their widows.

Patty Amburgey just received her first payment after her husband, Crawford, died in 2007 after 32 years in the mines.

“To see it, in somebody you lived with 45 years go from a vibrant man to a child is very hard,” says Amburgey.

She says getting the payment can also be difficult: even with the law, it took her 3 years to receive a payment.

Saw this and immediately thought of Henry. Also wonder if having arch enemies like Trump and Walker will increase your lifespan.

I don't think so, dog. The right is going to find that they've hit upon something the left has lacked for lo these many years; motivation to organize and act as one. There's lots more energy out there and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

The right organized to make Obama a one-term president and failed. The left is going to show them how to do it and we're going to use many of the same tactics they used. Minus the racism, homophobia, xenophobia, and misogyny.

Entered Clinton instead Trump and got 521,000 results. Trump regrets only totaled 517,000. What's your point?

If you want to compare Trump with Clinton, who got nearly three million more votes in the last election?

Don't you mean:

"If you want to compare Trump with Clinton, who got nearly three million more votes in California"?

Actually, 4.3mm more (8.7mm to 4.5mm)

Those 3 million votes got her a set of steak knives.

So she's got that going for her, which is nice.

I assume the Clinton buyer's remorse was due to the realization that Bernie would have been a much better candidate. Henry already knew that of course.

Where is your subject and where is your predicate? Two clauses do not a sentence make. What are you trying to say? A conditional clause and a modifying clause is still just two clauses.

Cute. But you could just as easily label that map "United States Population Density"
Oh look, someone already has.

In other words, the majority of voters - by a large margin - voted for Clinton. So what was your point Lyin' John?
