Thursday, when Ryan wanted the House to pass the bill, was the anniversary of Obamacare's passage. It was, notably, the seventh anniversary, not the eighth. That means that Trump and Ryan could take 364 days to pass this bill, and they would still be on pace. Take a week. Take a month. Take the time to write a bill that doesn't merely check a box, but that actually reforms healthcare.
There are many issues plumbed in these polls, but what comes through loud and clear is that, by hitching his popularity to Paul Ryan and Ryancare, President Trump has suffered a devastating drop in approval among the staunchest of his core constituents.
Conservatives are getting next to nothing in the #Ryancare bill. It’s time for conservatives and for President Trump to take his own deal making advice and walk away from this disaster – there are better deals available and the price of giving illegal aliens taxpayer subsidized health care is way too high. We urge CHQ readers to contact House Freedom Caucus members to urge them to stand tall against bullying from establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan.
Not even GOP leaders are dumb enough to “deal” with Democrats on the Gorsuch nomination. Plus, Trump and Obama haven’t spoken since January 20 and the media thinks it’s weird, and, Media still implying Trump is only helping the economy to enrich himself.
There's plenty of reason to doubt that this partial repeal — the bill repeals all of Obamacare's tax hikes but not its regulations — is "the best bill that can pass." For one thing, it's unclear that partial repeal will get more Republican votes than full repeal would. Second, we don't know whether Republicans can repeal the bill through budget reconciliation because Republicans haven't tried to do it.
The House votes today on #Ryancare. In his desperation to maintain federal government control of the health insurance and health care markets establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan is turning more and more to the ugly corruption of the Democrats’ former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We urge CHQ readers to contact their Representative to demand they vote NO on this corrupt disaster.
In going to the extreme in opposing Neil Gorsuch Democrats are searching for rock bottom. Plus, What will the repercussions be for the Republicans who vote for Ryancare?, and, To have higher quality public debate America needs higher quality and relevant education.
Here’s hoping all of that information about the mess of Obamacare Rep. David Schweikert has shared over the years inspires him to keep his promise to not support measures that do not successfully and smartly repeal and replace the worst health care bill in history.
Much as we’d like President Trump to succeed, providing subsidized health care to illegal aliens is too steep a price for conservatives to pay to support the President in his optimistic push to use Speaker Paul Ryan’s disastrous Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or #Ryancare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
It’s well past time sanity was restored to the Senate confirmation process – let the dance end. Plus, Is Trump a failure as a negotiator if the Ryancare bill dies?, and, Stakes heat up on Ryancare as Trump warns conservative holdouts.
The only parts of Obamacare establishment Republicans want to repeal are the parts in the current House bill, they are perfectly happy to keep the regulations and other Big Government parts of Obamacare and have no intention of establishing a free market health care and health care insurance system.
Gorsuch and Comey might have dominated TV but Ryancare is still the hottest topic in Washington. Plus, Democrats obsess – again -- on Russia during Comey testimony before the House, and, Democrats give truth to Mark Twain saying about idiots and Congress.
With the Gorsuch hearings set to begin, liberals prime their First Amendment protected slime machine. Plus, Crooked Hillary comes out of the woods – what’s she up to now?, and, Is the very public fight over Ryancare actually good for the GOP?
Not even Trump’s legendary hospitality can make Paul Ryan’s awful plan smell right. Plus, Why Paul Ryan needs Trump but Trump doesn’t necessarily need Ryan, and, John McCain vs. Rand Paul reveals yet another conservatives vs. establishment divide.
#RYNOCare is destined for failure and we conservatives need to call and tweet House Freedom Caucus members today to tell them to stand firm against this bill, and that we’ve got their backs when the establishment comes after them!
Government can’t fix the insurance market; all government can do is destroy it. It so happens that’s what the Democrats are counting on. Obamacare was designed to collapse into single-payer socialized medicine, so they’re going to do everything they can to resist efforts to alter the current trajectory. Don’t fall into that trap.
Ryancare is a twofer for Ryan: He and his big government DC pals continue to control people’s lives by controlling the health care and health insurance markets and they screw Trump in the process.
American Action Network, a political action committee with ties to former Speaker John Boehner and current Speaker Paul Ryan, is airing a half-million dollars’ worth of television ads in the districts of 30 Freedom Caucus members urging them to support Paul Ryan's #RINOcare bill.
Eight years after Obama and Pelosi set out to pass Obamacare, Republican Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican President Donald Trump are embarked on similar path that, if it continues, will have disastrous political consequences for the Trump and Republican brands.
In lifting the curtain on its proposed replacement for Obamacare, the GOP leadership revealed a plan, eight years in the making, that replaces Obamacare entitlements with GOP entitlements. Call it “Abominable Care” if you’re a die-hard free marketer. From a traditional conservative perspective, entitlements and government mandates are central to socialism. So the GOP leadership has shown the world once again it does not consider itself to be mankind’s last best hope for staving off socialism.
