On evening before Memorial Day, President Trump took a moment to tweet his thoughts on what needs to happen in regards to healthcare.
I suggest that we add more dollars to Healthcare and make it the best anywhere. ObamaCare is dead – the Republicans will do much better!

Forget about the awkward terminology of “add some dollars” instead of “spend more money.” While “spend more money” is obviously the better choice for someone who says they have the best words, it still says the same thing as “add more dollars.” What is that, you ask?
Both phrases say one thing…GROW GOVERNMENT, an idea that is supposed to be completely antithetical to republicanism.
Essentially, Donald Trump wants to outdo the Democrats on spending and pour more money into Obamacare, money which, I suppose, will just appear out of thin air.
The United States is already over $20 trillion in debt…and rising. We spent eight years with a president who put Keynesian economics on steroids, doubling our debt in his time in office. This has buried future generations in such an insurmountable amount of debt that many have wondered if we have reached a point of no return. Now, the “Republican” president is calling not for an increase in free market principles but more spending to supposedly improve it.
One would think Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media would be cheering the fact that Trump wants to outdo Obama in spending to show that “Republicans will do better.” Of course, they will still attack him over it and so-called Republicans will cheer his big spending idea.
It’s like we’re in a warped universe where up is down and left is right.

Pro-tip: Republicans should be on the side of Friedrich Hayek, not John Maynard Keynes when it comes to spending. Otherwise, right is left and America is then screwed.
