Creppelrm--Maybe it's because one plan will cause people to lose insurance, sicken, and die--and the other just seemed distasteful.

IDK-just putting that out there!

What really get's to me is AARP has catered to Paul Ryan and the Republicans and now is in panic mode telling their members how bad Trumpcare is when they should have been warning it's members long ago about the Republican plan to dismantle Obamacare.  They never once had a good word for former President Obama's health care plan.

Yesteday when Paul Ryan's tape saying he really didn't support Trump (back when he still had at least a remnant of a backbone), was leaked, I said, watch out--he's being set up so that Trump won't have to take responsibilty for this first draft of the "death care" act falling.

CNN just reported--SOME "TRUMP LOYALISTS ARE  SAYING THIS IS SPEAKER PAUL RYAN'S PROBLEM

and

SPEAKER RYAN HAS GOT TO GO.

Thinly veiled distractions--Trump and fellow idiots don't even play their own game well.

Once again I bring up John Boehners comments from a few weeks ago who said the Repugs. will not be able to repeal Obamacare, and that Repugs. could never ever agree on ANYTHING related to healthcare!!

No matter how bad Democrats seem when Republicans get into power it's easy to see they're a thousand times worse.

 

This GOP health care plan robs the old, sick, and poor to give rich people tax breaks, and still  makes 24 million uninsured, dropped from the insurance plan they have now. 

 

That's just the beginning, this plan will make the numbers on the uninsured go the wrong way for as long as it is in place.

 

Talk about a death panel ........................ the real death panel in the US is not having health insurance.

 

The people most affected ........ 50 to 64 years old in red states.

 

 

 


Wish I could give you more that one kudo.

Yes, indeed they are. 

 

I really dislike "I told you so"s.  They accomplish nothing toward fixing a problem and irritate a lot.  Just once of in a while though, I can't resist.  So...here goes....."I told you so".  Republicans have been taken over by the RRR aka TEA Party.   Yes, it's still there.  You can't see it 'cause they stopped wearing 'don't tread on me' T-shirts.  Oops, didn't mean to do a pun.  Now that it's there....hee, hee, hee.

 

The Republicans refused to admit they had some really bad apples in the barrel with all the others.  They figured they could use all the extra apples to make applesauce before the rot spread and THEN get rid of them.  Wrong.  

 

By the time they did admit it, it was too late to do anything about it and the whole barrel was rotten.  Even to make applesauce.  Might even be too late to use that barrel again.  They could have fixed it before that happened.  They were told.  They didn't.  Now, folks are beginning to learn that you can't eat apples picked out of that barrel...they may look good on the outside, but the cores have gone bad.

   Listening to Paul Ryan whine is bizarre.   His argument is that the CBO only scored Part 1 of  Trumpcare.    Well, gee whiz, that was what was sent by Ryan to be scored.  During an interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum, Ryan noted that Republicans cannot include every provision they want in this initial bill to repeal and replace Obamacare because they must use the reconciliation process. That process only requires 51 votes in the Senate, so it could pass with only Republican support. Ryan said that Republicans have a "three part process" because of that restriction. The second phase would be regulations from the executive branch, and the third phase is additional legislation that would need Democratic votes in the Senate to pass.

 

     Are the GOP going mystical - please ignore everything we sent to be scored - just make stuff up.

 

    Donald is seeking cover - Breitbart is attempting to put all the stink of Paul Ryan and give Donald a new white sheet.  

 

     Apparently Donald is not so great  a CEO.- if his minions are uncutting him and OMG sullying his name via TrumpCare.

CNN--JUST IN--According to a senator who met with Trump last night, White House is admitting that Health Care Bill cannot pass in its present form.

News Story said some senators are actually worried about their constituents, others don't think it goes far enough.  Others, according to earlier reports, are just plain worried about their jobs. 

Stay on your toes--keep being vocal!!  Keep calling reps!!!
