GOP Odds Rise On ObamaCare Repeal

by
September 20, 2017

Lindsey GrahamThe Trump administration and Republican leaders in Congress are going all-in on a last-ditch effort to replace ObamaCare.

Earlier this month, the GOP effort was all but dead as Republican leaders pivoted to tax reform. But the health-care legislation has picked up a significant amount of momentum over the past several days.

“I’ve never felt better about where we’re at,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of the bill’s sponsors, told reporters after senators met with Vice President Pence to discuss the new health-care proposal.

“At the end of the day, I really believe we’re going to get 50 Republican votes,” he added.

    I saw a woman on the news a few days ago and she was saying that you can ask anyone from Canada about health care and they will tell you how great it is. I have talked with more than one or two and they say it is terrible because if you have a problem and can wait long enough to see a physician you will be seen but that is if you don’t die while you are in that long waiting group.

    Trump and the republicans were elected and/or reelected to repeal Obamacare. Not try to fix it. It was one of the highlights of the 2016 campaign. Repeal Obamacare now and then work on a replacement. The voters did not want a watered down, quick fix, throw together, doctored up, Obamacare band-aid that Congress will, most likely, exempt themselves from.

    I suspect Republicans in Congress kept promising to repeal Obamacare, for the last six years of the Obama Administration, and secure the border during the campaign, just to try and earn brownie points with the voters. I don’t believe there was any intention of doing either. Even Senator Cornyn admitted that. I think Trump winning the White House caught everyone flat footed because they expected a Hillary win. Now they seem to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to find the right spin.

    They could have started working on a replacement back in November. They also had six years that they could have had experts working on a replacement that would make sense. They obviously didn’t do either. Looks like the promise to repeal is turning into a lie. What happened to the alternative to Obamacare the Republicans claimed to have had back in 2009? Was that also a lie?

    If Obamacare is not repealed, we will have a major promise broken. A lot of voters are not going to be happy. Remember when George H. W. Bush said “Read my lips” in 1988? We all know what happened in 1992 as a result of that broken promise. Trump and many Republicans can kiss reelection good-by. The Democrats will regain full power over Congress and the White House by January 2021. In the meantime the people are left holding the bag. Instead of replacing the RINOs with Democrats, I hope they can vote them out in the Primaries.

    President Trump: Just let it die.

  • Jose says:

    It appears that the “repeal and replace” is to make it more costly for some with pre-existing problems, reduce medicare benefits, etc.
    Same old BS from politicians who cater to those that pay them to do their bidding instead of thinking of those that voted them in.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Plain and simple, give us what you have congress, you work for us and ARE NOT entitled to anything better, in fact you’re not worth anything any better! Like my doctor told me, from what Obama did to our healthcare system, it’ll take years to straighten out, if it ever happens!! Their was a lot of fine print in his healthcare scam, but in the end it was meant to FAIL and go to a Gov. run socialist system like Sanders wants!

    Sen. John McCain (doing his victim charade with cancer cure) is circulating hourly TV ads in ALL of Arizona advertising his NO vote on Repeal and replace. John McCain is married to: 1) insurers; 2) Big Pharma; and 3) Hospitals (Honor Health in AZ is largest rip-off yet, Banner is next on this list of flim-flam healthcare, HMO’s also). John McCain, continues his “feel MY Pain” campaign. His interest? Self interest. Vote this sleezebag out NOW. Pray. Amen. God Bless America and ALL Americans. Drain The Swamp. Read A Bible. NKJV Psalm 128.

      I think people are just now realizing what McCain really is. The same thing he has been all along. A high priced POS.

    Oh please!! Let it die and get the government and all of their red tape, regulations and waste out of healthcare. ANYTHING that the government put their hands to has failed or been more costly, corrupt and ineffective. Ex: Postal system, Social Security funding, (because it was borrowed from endlessly), Billions of dollars to dictators, trillions of dollars in aid to other countries, Veteran’s Administration. The list goes on and on. The free market is the answer. Competition is what got us here not government regulations.

  • Cadfael says:

    Repeal is all that is required! Government, whether federal, or state, needs to once and for all get out of medical health care. A doctor and patient, maybe some insurance company is all that is required, no need for politicians, bureaucrats, information and privacy snoops, busy bodies and hyper active neighborhood and culture “nudgers” and nannies. One’s health should once again be one’s own, and no one else’s business. If politicians absolutely have the urge to legislate something they can start regulating the out of control trial lawyer lobby that is driving health care and insurance costs through the roof with their class action, and other law suits against medication manufacturers and health care professionals; their liability insurance costs are passed on straight to the patient, as well as increased research costs due to regulation, and costs for procedures due to Obama’s tax on medical devices. Health care costs should be completely tax free, government not being involved in running it would strengthen that claim!

      That is exactly the way I feel. If you really want to screw something up, have the government take it over. The Govt. take over of healthcare began with Hillary under Bill, Maybe I should re phrase that, she hasn’t been under Bill in quite a while. I digress.
      If we couldn’t afford healthcare before it was because of the government. All these supposedly intelligent people who have raised the deficit to over 20 trillion under Obama but with the consent of the republicans is suppose to make people want to vote the A holes back in. Please give me a break. I would rather have the local government rather than the federal govt. not that they are any more honest, just easier to reach. Why do these mafia politicians feel so safe after screwing 330 million people?

    Don’t need to “replace it”. Govt IS the problem.
    Just REPEAL it and let capitalists and entrepreneurs do what they do
    which is fight like cats and dogs to provide the best product or service for the most competitive price. No Govt. red tape or huge bureaucracy, better service, way cheaper, way more options. Win Win Win! It’s so damn easy.

    Once again the Republicans are calling changing part of a law repealing it. They can’t in fact repeal it and they know it. All they are doing is making it worse for everyone except the very rich and the insurance companies. They are rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. None of the problems with healthcare in this country are being addressed, people will get less healthcare and the cost for a lot of people will go up. Jobs will be lost and people will be put at risk. Thank you GOP for caring. I guess trying to fix the problem is to hard for you. After all healthcare is hard, ask the President.

  • TexRancher says:

    Will the gutless wonders really do the job they were elected to do? Remains to be seen. As long as Ryan (Eddie Muster) and McConnell (Chicken Little) stay in power, the chances of the will of the people being honored is slim!
