Mick- great explanation for why Dems can't win and GOPers can't govern.

 

Dems don't show up for elections because the leadership cannot forment a solid position that they will support and the GOPers won't, and that somehow is more important than all the fantastic things they've done to make life better for the 99%.

 

Republicans always show up because the GOP has presented solid (as in unchanging) positions that mesh perfectly with the racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, better-means-Commie attitudes of their base, but which they can never deliver.

I see the Commies at Standard & Poore's have estimated between 6 and 22 million people will lose their health insurance under the Reopublican plan. This is the plan GOPers have carefully designed so EVERYONE will have ACCESS to health care (which everyone already has) but does NOTHING to make it affordable. Republicans have also made sure all American's have ACCESS to Rolls Royce automobiles and private jets, with the same increase in Americans actually having either.

 

Seems the low estimate of 6 million Americans losing their health coverage is IF the Teabaggers (40% of the GOPers in Congress) agree to giving subsidies to the poor. The high number - basically everyone who got coverage for the first time because of Obamacare, is if the Teabaggers will not go along with subsidies to the poor. The baggers have made ending all support for poor people the keystone of their benighted agenda, so looks like the number will be 22 million with no insurance under the Republican replacement of PPACA.

 

Aren't all you Hillary Haters so proud?

Umbarch64- One of my biggest fears is that Dems will once again get complacent like they did yhis election year, and then the midyear elections will be lost. We must ALL KEEP ACTIVE AND VOTE WHEN THE TIME ARRIVES.

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

The main reason you have not seen serious proposals to repeal the ACA, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and Unemployment benefits is the upcoming 2018 mid-terms. 

 

Even IF "the donald's" misdeeds reach impeachment levels, Pence is in the wings, waiting.  Vote in the 2018 mid-terms to continue this imbalance of power and you will see those 'serious' proposals forced through the legislatures, signed by POTUS and on the books

SCOTUS will do nothing to curb this...even if the imbalance about to happen there does happen.

 

The argument that control over these things should be returned to the States is absolutely bogus.  Such action will not and cannot work....so they will fail...at which time they will be eliminated.  You've already seen that tactic at work.  "The donald" restated that tactic in regard to the ACA recently.

I suspect you either heard it or read about it.

Actually pc6063, the Republican health care bill shouldn't be referred to as "Trumpcare". The proper terminology should be "Trumpdon'tcare".

Mick-whining? Really?  The election is over, and as i have said REPEATEDLY, concern is over Trump's agenda, not his party.  bill is bad--schumer's point was that many--including republicans--think this is bad for all-he encouraged bi-partisan cooperation. 

Of course, Dems must take  blame for Trump, something else i have said more than once. So folks LIKE ME, understand what happened and why, which does NOT NEGATE the new health care bill, is totally lacking, which is what this thread is about.

 Just a few quick comments Trump care.

one -the Republicans keep saying they're going to keep their  promise to repeal the ACA . Yet all over the country, people are letting them know that that is not what they want.

two--trump said,  if we don't get this bill through we will continue with Obamacare, and when that fails, we will blame it on the Democrats. another example of his maturity level and his critical thinking skills. 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Are you or do you live with someone with disabilties?  Your costs will go up, with less coverage.

Trump care is really a tax break for the rich, not a health care program.  That's the motivation of so many of our Republican collegues.  To take people whose income is above 250 thousand and give them an average tax break-- to take the top .01% and give them an average tax break of over two hundred thousand dollars while making these people pay more, it's horrible.

President Trump has talked about helping working  America, but the plan he has embraced helps the rich and hurts the average American.

That's not surprising given all the other things his administration is doing.  His administration has developed a pattern, health care is part of that. They talk like populists, but act like those helping wealthy, special interests time after time.

No one likes this bill--hospitals, doctors, governors, conservatives, liberals, non-partisan groups, and most of the people here (crowd gathered around him) will no longer have affordable health care. So Democrats are here today to tell our Republican friends to turn back, drop this irresponsible pattern, stop this effort to repeal and we'll work with you to improve the Affordable Care Act."

 

This bill is getting resistence from Republicans as well, and may be DOA.  One last thing, AARP does not support this bill as it stands.

 


The Experts have been saying this about the Republican Bill for 8 years - so how come Clinton - Schumer - Pelosi - Wassermann-Schultz and the rest of the Democratic Leadership across the country did such a horrible job getting people out to vote

 

WHY

 

Because they along with all Democratic Incumbents are Incompetent - devising a National Strategy that was only concerned about keeping Democratic Incumbents in place in Washington and like always taking the White Middle Class Working Poor - The Minorities - and the Elderly for Granted like they always have

 

Oh we don;t have to worry about that part of our base - they always vote Democratic because we keep telling them how much we are going to do for them

 

STOP BLAMING REPUBLICANS FOR WINNING - that's what they are supposed to do 

 

BLAME DEMOCRATS FOR SIMPLY TALKING THE TALK - and never delivering -

 

Folks like yourself who are still buying into this Blame Game and any other Democrats who support this craziness will still be whining and whining and whining and thinking that if we just continue to support these same leaders and their policies of Blaming Everyone Else for their Failures - Hoping this one next time - following the same failed policies and the same failed strategies from the same Failed Democratic Leaders - things will be different 

 

Democrats across the Country already know Trump is bad for them

 

Democrats across the Country already know Republican Policies are bad for them

 

What Democrats across the Country can't seem to understand - is following the same Failed Leadership is going to result in waking up every AM with the same knowledge and understanding that Trump and the Republicans are bad for them and having no one Representing them that knows what to do about it except - Remind us Everyday what a bunch of Incompetents are leading us and whining is the way to a better life
