What Sort of Nation has the U.S. Become?

I’ve used various terms to describe our economic system in the U.S.; Corporatocracy (rule by corporations), Kleptocracy (rule by those who have take from those who have little), and even fascism (corporate government merging-militant militarism-extreme nationalism-racism).

Since the Republicans now have gained full power in DC with Donald (Captian Queeg) Trump is president, and seeing what they are saying and doing, we can add another to our little group of descriptive nouns: Idiocracy (rule by the stupid).

“The Republican healthcare plan wants to crack down on ‘high dollar lottery winners’ – how many of those are there?”

In the draft law now known as TrumpCare, Republicans have inserted language relating to “‘high dollar lottery winners’. . . (almost six of the draft law’s 66 pages are spent on these Americans).”

These people, according to Republicans, are apparently still on Medicaid, cheating the taxpayer.
