Ryancare

Take a breath and rewrite repeal and replace

Editors, Washington Examiner

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.

The Reason For President Trump’s Approval Problem

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.

Midnight Rules Meeting Sets The Stage For Friday Obamacare Vote

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.

Republican leaders must fight for regulation-repeal in healthcare bill

Editors, Washington Examiner

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.

On #Ryancare Paul Ryan = Harry Reid

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.

Rep. David Schweikert should oppose Ryan’s Obamacare-lite

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.

The Deal Breaker In #Ryancare

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.

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are Right About #RyanCare

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.

Tell the House Freedom Caucus: Stand Tall Against #RYNOcare

#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!

Don’t Be Covered In Lies

David Catron, The American Spectator

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 a Kamikaze Mission for Trump

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.

The Coming #RINOcare War On Conservatives

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.

Ryan and Trump Acting Like Obama and Pelosi?

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.

Call the Ryan-McCarthy bill to replace Obamacare what it is — abominable

Ralph Z. Hallow, Washington Times

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.
