Establishment Republicans Battle Themselves Over Obamacare

McConnell Refuses To Work With Conservatives On Obamacare Replacement

We urge CHQ readers to call Senator McConnell’s office (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell him you want a vote on the Consumer Freedom Option. Tell him it’s time for Senate Republicans to let the American people know whether they stand with consumers who want choice and freedom or with the Democrats and their abusive and intrusive Obamcare healthcare mandates.

Ted Cruz faces tough Obamacare questions at otherwise friendly town hall

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

Near the tail end of a forum with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that was sponsored and run by Concerned Veterans for America, a conservative group, an argument broke out over the merits of repealing the Affordable Care Act. Cruz said he is pleased with the progress of negotiations to repeal the law in the Senate, although he conceded during the forum: "It's been bumpy. I am not certain we'll get it done. I hope we will.

When Ted Cruz, GOP saw troubled future of Obamacare repeal

Republicans are fighting among themselves over a bill that would make substantial changes in Obamacare but leave the structure of the law intact. And several GOP lawmakers — enough to scuttle any final agreement — are afraid of cuts in subsidies, in coverage, and in the Medicaid expansion. It all shows that Cruz was right back in 2013.

Time for Conservatives to Call Talk Radio

It’s time to call talk radio and your Senators.  Tell your Senators and your favorite talk radio show host that they need to get behind the Cruz amendment to the Senate health care bill.

Conservatives Oppose McConnell’s Obamacare Bill

Mitch McConnell’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 is a Band-Aid when an amputation is needed. This is not what Congress has promised the American people and will only pave the way for a government-run, single payer system that Republicans will own. The Senate should, simply put, start over.

Al Franken Is 'Sick,' All Right

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

This is why conservatives roll their eyes when liberal journalists lecture about the need for civility. They adore Franken's bilious nastiness as "full-throated liberalism" but freak out when someone uses Barack Obama's middle name. Their judgment of civility is as well-honed as their judgment of "news." It's all about whose ox is being gored.

Obamacare Is Working Great… In DC

DC Health Link has 20 private health insurance options to choose from, big companies like CareFirst and Kaiser Permanente. For 2017 small businesses -- like the United States Congress -- have 151 health plan options from Aetna, CareFirst, Kaiser and United. However, if you live in Virginia, Iowa, Tennessee or someplace else in flyover country you may be down to one or no choice in health insurance.

Trump Strikes A Blow For The Rule Of Law

The firing of James Comey is a much-needed corrective to the Obama – Comey cult of government by personal whim and an important step toward the reestablishment of the rule of law; it should be applauded by all Americans.

Ted Cruz Scorches FBI Director James Comey

The video of Ted Cruz questioning FBI Director James Comey is all the proof most conservatives need that keeping Comey on as FBI Director may be the worst personnel decision of President Trump’s new administration.

The House Obamacare Vote: First Step To Repeal Or Sham?

In our view all of our friends are correct; the American Health Care Act is “closer to full repeal than the old GOP bill was,” however, it is still “deplorable” for its insurance company subsidies and its sham defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Paul Ryan’s Betrayals Define Trump’s 100 Days

As well-intentioned and committed to his agenda as President Trump may be, he has failed to grasp that Paul Ryan is the author of these failures not because he is an inept Speaker, but because he is on the other side.
