Ryan pulls Obamacare repeal and replace bill...

Doesn't have the votes to pass the house... 
Look... I don't really like the manner in which this has been rolled out. I don't believe I am alone in all of this. It seems like a sped up version of how Obamacare was passed, without the full Party line support and parliamentary gimmicks. Nobody even "really" understands what it does or doesn't do. How can I say that I support or oppose something, if I don't know exactly what it is? They would be much better off getting their ducks in a row, and doing this one step at a time.
  • Find issues that are popular with the public
  • Explain those issues openly and plainly
  • Create a bill that specifically addresses these issue
Start with simple things, like repealing the mandate.  Make the CBO "specify" how repealing the mandate will somehow make people "lose coverage"... even as it would be their "choice" to do so. Create separate bills on other issues like repealing specific taxes that are unpopular and known to raise the costs of healthcare. 

Contrary to conventional wisdom I think it's a good thing that there are a variety of caucuses and groups within the GOP that have their own issues that they want addressed. I find this to be much more attractive to me as a voter than the lock step Party line attitude of the Democrats.

Let Obamacare burn to the ground.

Sometimes the American people need to be reminded of disastrous liberal policies, and feel the pain. It took thirty years to forget about Jimmy Carter's pitiful Presidency....hence the election of a community organizer. Obamacare is Obama's baby, it belongs to the liberals.

Embrace the suck.

Some times loretta needs to sit back and think the world does not revolve around her view or the republicon's agenda and that there is a whole population that are nothing but leeches in her eyes....You have the majority in both houses and 7 years of voting the ACA down and not only come up short,but blame the D's for not supporting the bill when polls clearly indicated what needed to be done. Your side now owns obama care....all of it. But are too stupid to realize that is what the people see. Argue all you want, excuses are just a bunch of BS, but you got is nothing.... Idiots.

I still haven't seen anything to suggest the Trump presidency will not be a disaster.

C.H. Truth said...

Indy - if Gorsuch gets confirmed, and Trump fills the hundred and eighty some federal judgeships that are currently open...

Then it's a win for me, compared with what we otherwise would have had.

No need, Loretta. If you want to continue acting like a spoiled brat with nothing to say.....I'll just depend on you for being an ass. Congrats on being a loser, just like donnie.

LOL!

CH "Then it's a win for me, compared with what we otherwise would have had."

Which is like saying that at least the snail crap isn't as slimy as pond scum. I don't think you can posit either one as "a win".

Forget about Republicans "owning Obamacare" - the real problem is that they "own" the Trump presidency, and this disaster appears to be only getting worse.

The fish stinks from the head down. Trump care is part of that stink.

"Contrary to conventional wisdom I think it's a good thing that there are a variety of caucuses and groups within the GOP that have their own issues that they want addressed."

The Republicans are in total control, the trifecta that was your goal since "We will do everything we have to, is keep Obama from a second term". Now that the primary reason for the people to remove and replace Obamacare, has blown up like a nuclear bomb.

Your "Trump is right" President, has been unable to unite the Republicans. He spoke with a Washington Post reporter, and he said that he didn't understand the complexity of the partisan difficulties in passing a law. He is as many of us said, a 70 year old rookie. He failed to unite his own party! And you dug into the sewer system and you think it doesn't stink. He failed, for once avoid Fake News, and smell the shit.

I worked on the expansion of the sewer treatment plant in Law Vegas. It always smelled like shit. You should be honest, that he stunk.

I'd compare you to the guy who rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic, C.H., but your captain is the guy who said "Icebergs? That's fake news!". And that's far worse.

Anyone else see the irony in the Freedom Caucus saving Obamacare?

Commonsense said...

Yep.

James said...

An increasing number of Americans are seeing that a significant naïve and hateful portion of them (but not a majority) elected a bullshitter for President.

The irony is palpable....but as I said before....they won this battle and crushed their own dream. Oh well, probably a good thing, IMHO.....Louis Gohmert should just fade away, he truly is an embarrassment to any human being.

Yep, we need some that shit you are either smoking or drinking. Difficult to understand who won what, especially for loretta who just goes with the inane flow because she is lost like rudderless ship. But, as long as you all think you are winning, will lead to more failures of the right. Good, keep believing its all you can do.

Idiots.

Yes, it is amusing. Not mentioned are the number of people, who showed up at the public events, in favor of keeping ObamaCare.

Exactly,,,,

The Insurance Companies have left or are leaving it , so let it die of its' own failure.

Next up YUGE Tax cuts and reforms.

My number one issue in tax cuts is the reduction of the US World Leading Rate and a flat lower tax for US Based Companies earning money Abroad to bring it back to work here in the USA, a flat 15 % works.

Democrats are you for growing the US Economy?

KD, Roger Krugman Pround others pay his bills said...

ObamaCare gives to the Interlopers, I was shocked they did not come out and Vote for Hillary. Like I said, the win over the next four years is the simple facts:

1, No Hillary
2, No Liberal being named to the USSC

KD, Yuge Tax Cuts to Earner$ said...

moderate Democrats " WP

Take a minute and let us know by name who are those 10 Moderate Democrat Senators and 20 Moderate Democrats in the US House?"

You can't list them, OK,

Next issue.

I see WP ran from his issue ,,,,, looks like he has Roger Krugman Syndrome .

opie said...

CBO disagrees with your idiotic post.....It won't implode, but the admin will do everything they can to sabotage it. A self fulfilling prophesy you are noted for. Idiots IMHO. they should build a wall around kansas and fill it with water to eliminate brain damaged fools like you from wasting O2.
