It is very clear you are cutting 850 billion dollars in Medicaid, for the poorest of the poor. If you want to do it, embrace it. Do not lie about it. Stop lying about it. We know you are lying about it. We are not stupid.

I never thought Joe would become the voice of conscience on political issues--change is possible he shows, giving us hope. Thanks Dandelion

It helped to push him there when the President attacked both of them. Trump use to be their darling. Trump is the perfect example of shooting yourself in your own foot.

I watch Morning Joe and I am so glad he now maintains his disgust with Trump and has recently announced he is leaving the Republican party this week on his show and on Stephen Colbert. I often wanted to punch him. I had to mute Joe and MIka often when they were trying to be "supportive" of the "president" but now that they have come back to reality, I can actually listen/watch a whole show without getting infuriated.

A leopard doesn't change it's spots. He may be leaving the GOP but his alt right attitude will not be going away.

As Lisa points out - he's serious about this!

This video is from a couple of months ago, but a couple of days ago (11 July)
Joe Scarborough Tells Colbert He’s Leaving the Republican Party
On Tuesday’s Late Show, the Morning Joe co-host railed against the G.O.P.’s refusal to disavow Trump’s racism, and announced that he plans to become an Independent.

(By the way - the rest of that May 26 show is worth listening to, as well)

And watch Joe on Colbert's show the other day: Joe Scarborough Explains Why He's Done With The GOP

The two major parties have completely lost their way, and I would say the main reason is the pernicious effect of money in politics. Until something is done about that, I don't see much possibility in any big change. I hope more people begin to defect from these organizations that no longer are guided by the values and principles they once held.

I wondered when I read this if others had seen Colbert earlier in the week, and it seems Lisa and Evelyn have. I almost always watch his show. I used to watch Morning Joe sometimes when I had cable but I haven't had it for about three years. I think it takes some guts for Joe Scarborough to rethink his membership in the Republican Party, and I was pleasantly surprised by his statements.

Waiting for "monied interests" to come around is like waiting for food to effortlessly to appear on your table. When the constituency stops with their apathy and complacency and takes its rightful place in governance equilibrium will be restored and we the people will begin to thrive again.

Know your political representatives, put their address and phone number in your contact list. Know, discuss and reflect on their activities with your friends and neighbors. Offer your suggestions and support for your priorities to those elected officials so that they can govern appropriately on your behalf and when they know you are there for them and they have your support "they" will have NO reason to look for their reelection for money to entice voters, because they already have them.

I just saw him in the Colbert late show, and he said he has become an independent, and he also just released and album with his band. I didn't know he was a hidden singer and muscian. Mybe he change jobs, and mellow out. Thank you Dandelion

On the other side of the pond, it is obvious that Trump is ground-zero for distrust, suspicion, and sloppy thinking. The massive cuts on healthcare serve no rational purpose other than to show the bizzaro group think of the GOP who have shown all the human warmth of a bath of liquid helium, goes to show that whilst all over the U.S. there are people whose lives are being destroyed for lack of proper health care provision, and there is no sight more odious than the rich, powerful and arrogant trying to keep it that way. Particularly the bloated Orange fool who has demonstrated on a daily basis that he is too stupid to realise how stupid he really is.

Anyone who thought the Repugs currently running the White House and Congress really care about the American people are delusional or stupid or both.

Joe is wrong on one account: The GOP is already in their own hell!

Thank you, Dandelion.

Judging from the letters to my local newspaper, either Republican voters believe every word their politicians and Fox News say or they flat out don't care about the lying. It's hard to find optimism in that.

We don't have enough money for Medicare, schools, infrastructure, et cetera - but we sure have plenty for fighting pointless and unwindable foreign wars.

The Rethuglicans are coming apart at the seams, but the Democrats are scarcely an alternative. What we need is a Progressive version of the Tea Party. Whoops, we already have that: Bernie Sanders and his supporters. Get up everybody, no more sleeping in bed: rise up and RESIST! We have a year and a half to save this country by legal and peaceful means.

Agree with most of what everyone has said.

There's an obvious disconnection between what people EXPERIENCE and what they're TOLD by Mainstream Media, which paints the rosy picture of right-wing ideological policy making things good for everyone, whilst painting the horrors of Socialism. . . . when it's clearly the exact opposite, when one's eyes are open wide.

Did you-all get even a hint when GW Bush was out promoting capitalizing Soc Security & handing it to Wall St ? Didn't you-all get a hint that during the 90's the Clinton's failed to convince the republicans to reform healthcare before the crisis was bigger ? Didn't you-all get a HINT when republicans ran the country between 2001- 2009 and we all fell through the roof through the floor .? The republicans are good at B.S. actually experts and the voters have short memories.....or as Karl Rove took measure on how stupid Americans are ...he used dirty tricks that are still being used to swing voters easily to the right.
