Obamacare Repeal and Replace Dead (As Predicted). GOP and Trump Attempt to Expand It Instead!

It's been a while since I've posted predictions, either here on my blog or on my Youtube channel, so I thought I'd post a series of small updates, beginning with Obamacare.

If you read my original post on November 20th, 2016, following the last presidential election when candidate Donald J. Trump trounced Hillary Clinton in a surprise win, you know that I predicted Obamacare wouldn't be easy to unravel.  In particular, I wrote:

Obamacare just won't die in 2017, despite a special committee(s) designed just for the purpose of killing and replacing it. Honestly, the central banks and multinational corporations that benefit from this fascist business model are so deeply embedded in the U.S. federal government, that despite having both a House and Senate that are Republican, along with a Republican (in name) President, this initiative just goes no where fast!  

Yes, that's right.  I called Obamacare and its current mutation (let's just call it what it is), "Trumpcare", a "fascist business model that does nothing more than bail out big insurance companies!  

Senator Rand Paul, Trumpcare's biggest opponent points out the following in his recent Breitbart editorial:

"The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. I want to repeat that so everyone realizes why I'll vote "no" as it stands now:  The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. Not even close.  In fact, the Senate GOP bill codifies and likely expands many aspects of Obamacare."

"The bill will transfer billions of dollars to people who will then transfer billions of dollars to insurance companies." continues Paul.  "What a great business model-encourage the federal government to use taxpayer money to buy a private company's product.  Great business model, that is, if you are Big Insurance. Remarkable."

So there you have it. One way or another, we're stuck with Obamacare, at least until 2019, at which point it should be swept off the table, and in to the garbage once and for all.  Don't expect a "replacement" either. (Good!)

BREXIT & Prime Minister Theresa May Update

Almost one year ago, I posted a prediction about BREXIT and the newly appointed British Prime Minister Theresa May.  At the time, most Americans knew little (if anything) about May.  In that post, I predicted that May's days would be (relatively) numbered:

Prime Minister Theresa May (Reuters, Nicholls)
"Keeping good relationships with her country’s nearest neighbors while honoring the Brits’ desire to remain out of the European Union is an unworkable proposition, despite May’s prowess and willingness to communicate and negotiate with other European nations. It is unworkable simply because the European Union is falling apart, and each member country has major problems of its own to manage. What’s worse, the EU is marching to war between its member countries, exacerbated by Brussels and American interests, and this will all lead to a weakened Europe by 2020." 

"With all this in mind, I wouldn’t be surprised to see May step down from her role as Prime Minister by 2019."

Since then, in June of 2017, Prime Minister May lost her majority in the general election, and positive public opinion of her is waning in the polls.  To make matters worse, Great Britain is struggling with higher than expected inflation and a waning economy.

So, what should we look for next?

I stand by my original prediction that May will be "out" by 2019.  However, the future for Great Britain is anything but secure, with calls to abandon the Brexit and rejoin the European Union lasting up to 2020. Furthermore, England will struggle to retain control over Ireland and Scotland, and may appear to be losing Scotland altogether by 2019.  However, Great Britain will remain together in its current form through 2020, and should enjoy a few years of peace and prosperity through 2023.  They will also continue as a sovereign nation, one apart from the European Union.

Still, there will come a time...around 2025...when we will see Great Britain at war once again, perhaps with one of its European neighbors such as France.
