A Fake $200 prescription card won’t make up for losing your monthly Social Security check or your Medicare. I hope some of these older people don’t fall for this scam.

He thinks seniors are stupid, that they don’t know he is trying to completely destroy social security and Medicare.
He also thinks they’re easier to pay off than the hookers and porn stars he bribes.
$200? Didn’t Stormy cost you way more than that when she wore her Ivanka costume to bed with you, Donny?
If you want to bribe seniors, Donny-baby, at least give each of them the $150K like you gave Stormyvanka.

The U.S. arranged for an IMF loan to Russia just days before its 1996 election. Russians who hadn’t seen a pension check in months suddenly got one the day before or the morning of the election, thanks to Yeltsin’s election advisers from the U.S.

Sad state of affairs when our two major exports are arms and ratfucking.

Well, at least Big Pharma’s bribery of the Bleached House and Congress are not pathetic. USA USA USA USA USA USA!!!

Although this is a ridiculous and ineffective move, it will give the impression to a few that Trump is doing something for the needy. To a few, this will look to be in sharp contrast to Biden, who offers nothing. Recently Trump mentioned considering a pardon for Snowden, discussed the influence and war mongering of the MIC, and talked about reducing troop levels and extricating us from some of our regime change military excursions. Of course, he is just saying these things to get votes and is disingenuous, but look how easy it is for him to look as if he is to the left of Biden. Biden and the democrats are willing to lose rather than move left. Biden is, and has always been, a republican.

Meanwhile Trump is telling workers that they won’t have to pay back four months of FICA withholding and FICA withholding will end permanently if they vote for him. The GOP will have bribes that pander to every voter demagraphic before the November 3 election.

Once in a while the stark truth of “The love of money is the root of all evil” comes to the surface for all to see.
I wonder if it is still illegal to give a share of trump enterprises for a vote? And who is watching anyway?

Trump managed to surprise me on how stupid and out of touch he can possibly get.

$200 won’t come close to covering ONE MONTH of my meds.

Funny how you can watch his pathetic little mind at work. He is so blantant. He thinks everyone is corrupt like him and will respond to his con man come ons. Unfortunatley there are a lot of people who are as corrupt, desperate or pathetic like him. The rest of us just watch in amazement.

Please check out a prescription discount APP.
An example is GoodRx.
May be saving you time and travel
plus may be competition out there.

Thanks. I already use goodrx. It saves me money on one of my drugs to not use insurance. ($37 is so much less than $1200.) It does not save time, travel, or energy, because it also means that I have to go to more than one pharmacy. And one of those don’t have drive thru.

There is no competition. Just a roulette wheel.
