McConnell - Repeal now, replace later...

After arguing from the beginning that repeal and replace had to take place "together" the Senate Majority leader suggested last night that he would put forward a clean repeal.

Most people expected that the Republican Senate leader would follow through with his threats to "work with Democrats" if the latest efforts failed, but it looks as if that was another bluff (at least for now).

I expect this is the actually the "last" last chance for the GOP senate to come together and do what they have promised for the past elections... which is to repeal Obamacare. If they cannot muster 50 votes for exactly what more than 50 of them have voted for multiple times in the past, then I would certainly expect McConnell to drop any further attempts to undo Obamacare.

But of course, this is the Senate. The world of the never ending positioning and grand standing. It would not surprise me in the least if at least three GOP Senators who voted for repeal in the past (when it didn't matter) will no longer support the same vote today (when is actually does matter). It's just the nature of the political beast.

It would certainly make for an interesting political atmosphere over the next year or so, if indeed Obamacare was repealed. Would the Parties work together? Would the Democrats try to sabotage anything new for political purposes? Would Republicans who were against these repeal and replace plans, actually support these same plans in the future, if Obamacare was not still the law? The questions abound.

This is exactly what the GOP deserves for putting the concerns of the wealthy ahead of what most Americans need.

The Democrats' new motto should be AMERICA FOR US ALL.

If I really believed James was a pedophile, I would report him.
I would be legally required to, for the protection of children.
Because I do not really believe he is a pedophile, I do not
report him. Instead, I hide behind a false identity and make
statements about him I cannot back up.

That they did not have a plan ready to go on day one is a gross malpractice of leadership.

Ronald Glass, former director of democratic initiatives in Russia for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has broken a long silence, condemning then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s inaction after Russia banished the USAID program from its borders in 2012.

“She was absent. The silence was deafening,” Glass said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group. Glass, who is now retired, also worked for USAID on “democracy governance issues” in Afghanistan, Honduras and Columbia, as well as Russia. The agency is part of the Department of State.

Glass, who described himself as a “social liberal,” said he was prompted to come forward by the “mind boggling” assertions from the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and other leading Democrats who claim they were tough on Russia. Glass has never previously commented on Clinton’s failure to respond to the Russian expulsion.

“No push back on this global issue? I never expected it of my own government. Never,” Glass said, calling the expulsion “one of the most strategic moments in U.S.-Russia bilateral relations ever.”



“I can say even the most liberal people at USAID — and even the Hillary supporters I talked to at the time — were quite upset the mission was closed,” Glass said. “For them the closure was just a tragedy and a travesty.”

Then-President Barack Obama’s failure to issue any official complaints or protests limited public awareness of USAID’s expulsion, while the national news media covered the story for a single day.

A review by The DCNF of the 30,490 official government emails Clinton stored on her private server and turned over to the State Department in 2015 revealed that neither she nor her aides addressed Russia’s expulsion of the agency.

personally, i'm not surprised the senate fucked this up. there are too many squishes in safe seats like collins from ME, and too few guys with a clear eye for a real solution like cruz, lee and paul to get a workable bill passed.

shitcan it in its entirety and start over. oh and be sure to block every democrat and their shitty amendments from the process. turnabout is fair play.

opie said...

Yep... it is the senates fault.....At least rathole can't blame his contingent on trumps failure. Loretta elected one of the no votes, so lets blame loretta for electing a loser who voted for the people, rather than the party. Ironic isn't it.

Trumpcare Collapse Shows Why GOP Cannot Govern

"In truth, it was never possible to reconcile public standards for a humane health-care system with conservative ideology. In a pure market system, access to medical care will be unaffordable for a huge share of the public. Giving them access to quality care means mobilizing government power to redistribute resources, either through direct tax and transfers or through regulations that raise costs for the healthy and lower them for the sick. Obamacare uses both methods, and both are utterly repugnant and unacceptable to movement conservatives. That commitment to abstract anti-government dogma, without any concern for the practical impact, is the quality that makes the Republican Party unlike right-of-center governing parties in any other democracy. In no other country would a conservative party develop a plan for health care that every major industry stakeholder calls completely unworkable.”

“Every attempt to resolve the contradiction between public demands and conservative ideology has led the party to finesse it instead. That is why Republicans spent years promising their own health-care plan would come out very soon. It is why their first and best option was repeal and delay. And it is why they are returning to that option now.”

James said...

Read that last over and over and over. Learn something for a change.

"In no other country would a conservative party develop a plan for health care that every major industry stakeholder calls completely unworkable.”

BTW.....made a mistake this a.m and stopped on faux news while the trump care was tanking....they were covering the expanding Susan Rice problem and made in america....Always wondered where you got your leads since we all know you are not smart enough to think on your own.....

Laughing loudly, James said...

Rat, put your legal name here calling me a child molester and I will see you in court. If you really believed I was one, you'd risk everything to rescue the poor children you falsely say I'm molesting. You know you're lying so you do nothing. You're the biggest fake here, and that's saying a lot. :-)

Tell that to the Regional Office of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Illinois and Wisconsin. They require all their pastors to undergo frequent background checks.

You are all liars and cowards. And Commensa is a false witness.
