President Trump’s team reported great beginnings for his conservative agenda to the thousands of conservatives assembled at CPAC, however, something was definitely missing.
The Democrats and their media mouthpieces know that Obamacare has decimated their party. Thus, they desperately want to deed it over to Trump and the GOP. They couldn’t care less if their reasoning fails to pass the laugh test or how many rhetorical pirouettes they must execute.
The simple reality is this. If Planned Parenthood is going to be defunded in Obamacare, reconciliation must be used. Otherwise, the provision will succumb to a Democratic filibuster, and be removed from the bill. The longer the GOP continues to delay on repeal, the more unlikely it is they’ll be able to use the reconciliation vehicle to repeal Obamacare, much less to defund Planned Parenthood.
The President’s order is by no means ordinary. Nor is it a symbolic bone thrown to his supporters to convince them that he is keeping an empty campaign promise. It is, rather, a clear signal to the bureaucracies that ultimately answer to him as the head of the executive branch. He knows the policies of some Presidents tend to evaporate, despite having been passed by Congress and signed into law, due to the intransigence of federal bureaucrats. Trump is telling them that this isn’t going to work with him.
President Obama is the most unaccomplished man to ever hold the office and has been given an eight-year free pass and never held to account for his failures; while Donald J. Trump hasn't even been sworn in and is already a human pinata for the snowflake right and the radical left.
Get government completely out of the healthcare industry where they don’t belong. Don’t try to write whole new policies. Let the insurance companies create policies to fit the market’s needs.
Schumer said Republicans are like the dog that caught the bus. If Obamacare lives on, Democrats will be that dog. But is this what they really want, including the political suffering that the misbegotten health care program carries with it? I think the answer is yes. They're saving a great liberal dream. They can't let it die. They're addicted.
As a recent NewsBusters study shows, so far in this news cycle, the major networks have skewed the coverage of the effort to defund Obamacare to make it look like the repeal effort is not about Obamacare’s failed business model and job killing taxes and regulations, it’s all about Planned Parenthood.
When I was in the Senate, they would use every excuse to avoid fighting for conservative priorities. “Wait until we get the House.” Done. “Wait until we get the Senate.” Done. “Wait until we get the White House.” Done and done. There are simply no alternatives left but to repeal Obamacare and win the fight (a shocking prospect for some!)
The Republican Study Committee, led by Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina, is proposing to replace President Obama's healthcare law with a system where people can get tax deductions to help buy coverage on their own instead of through an employer.
In reality, these cuts will merely stop forcing hardworking Americans to pay for coverage they themselves cannot afford because of the “Affordable Care Act.” Meanwhile, these Obamacare dead-enders also insist that any revenue policy that fails to punish successful Americans amounts to “tax cuts to the rich.” This is why their side keeps losing elections.
Obamacare is a failure by every objective standard. It doesn’t work, the voters hate it, and the Republicans have a mandate to put it out of its misery. No amount of Democrat obstruction, fake news, phony studies, whining from #SnowFlakes, or snark from #SoreLosers can save it. It’s time to pull the plug and move on.
When the Founders proclaimed that our rights came from our Creator, no future president or governing body could ever change, or rescind them, because they did not render them. This act ensured that our property rights were free from seizure... if we paid attention.
President-elect Trump, we do not want to 'repeal and replace' Obamacare any more than we want to 'fix' Common Core, or 'tinker' with HUD's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. We want these centrally controlled mandates run down, rooted out wherever they lead, and vaporized until there is no trace they ever existed.
The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044. We urge CHQ readers to call Congress to oppose the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 34) and to join other limited government constitutional conservatives in opposing this one last giveaway to Obama’s priorities by the feckless Capitol Hill Republican establishment.
Last Tuesday’s exit polls have a story to tell about Obamacare for anyone willing to listen: “Voters feeling that the law went too far are breaking decisively for Trump, 80 percent to 13 percent.” In flyover country, we call this a mandate.
Trump gives states flexibility to improve Medicaid for the poor. His plan resembles what House Republicans are pushing, which means it might actually get passed. On Nov. 8, voters have the chance to rid this nation of ObamaCare. They should seize it.
The only thing that has caught the left by surprise is that Obamacare has burst into flames so much faster than even severe critics -- such as myself -- ever thought possible. The left was praying the bad news wouldn't be exposed until after the election. Now at least Americans will go to the polls with the ugly facts right in front of them.
Obamacare is harming individuals who buy coverage through its crumbling exchanges as well as those covered via their jobs. It’s long past time to stop the madness.
Some states with tight Senate races are seeing their Obamacare rates climbing next year even more than the average 22 percent increase announced by the Obama administration on Monday, as Republicans use the spikes to try to get the upper hand in a close battle for control of the chamber.
