Pence says momentum building for House to pass health-care bill

by

PenceVice President Mike Pence told an audience in Florida Saturday that the White House is “working around the clock” with Republican lawmakers to pass an administration-backed health care bill to repeal and replace Obamacare ahead of a House vote next week.

“Every day, more and more members of Congress are getting on board,” Mr. Pence said during a visit to a paper company in Jacksonville. “We’re counting on Florida. We need every Republican in Florida to support this bill and support the president’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.”

Two House lawmakers from Florida, Republican Reps. Ron DeSantis and Bill Posey, are members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus that has been mostly opposed to the new legislation. Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, has also expressed reservations about the bill.

Republican House leaders are preparing to bring up the health-care legislation for a floor vote on Thursday after the administration agreed to amendments that would make changes to Medicaid, the insurance program for the poor. The changes would give states the option to impose work requirements on able-bodied people who get Medicaid, and allow governors to accept a block grant of federal funding for the program instead of a per-capita allotment.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH RAND PAUL’S PLAN?

    WE HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Looks like the good little Catholic boy, Ryan. might get his massive Killing Machine in place soon. People of all ages, HE’LL KILL THOUSANDS BY TAKING THEIR HEALTH CARE AWAY. He’ll kill more than the Christians killed during the Crusades. And the Republicon Bible thumpers will say, Sorry, we didn’t Ryan was going to kill so many with his Voucher program. Oh well!!!!

    1. Retired says:

      How do you know all this , are you inside of Ryan’s Head or are you up the medias rear ??? No one really knows what’s going on until it hits the floor and then there can be so many add ons that nothing will happen .

      1. Bob says:

        If you paid attention, you’d know the pretend Catholic, Ryan, got stomped running for VP on the same “Loser” agenda he’s pushing again. Hopefully, the rest of Congress will tell the Joker to go “Jump in the Lake.” Since you’re Retired, I’d be scarred to death of Sellouts like Ryan and Chump!!!

        1. Retired says:

          Why don’t you sign up for the Speakers news letters , that is if he will except you ??

          1. Bob says:

            Hey Retarded – You didn’t respond to my comment regarding Ryan getting his butt kicked while running for VP. That voucher plan he had back then was the same LOSER he has now. The voucher is only good to wipe your butt with. Maybe that’s good enough for the Uneducated!!

          2. Retired says:

            If you were not so ignorant you would know his leader was the cause of loosing .

    2. Walter Flatt says:

      WE AS CHRISTIANS ARE NOT AFRAID TO DIE. ARE YOU.

      1. Bob says:

        Tell me Mr. Braveheart. If you’re so fearless, why aren’t you over in Iraq or Syria? Or do you prefer to follow in the footsteps of Chump (5 deferments) and Cheney (also 5 deferments). Republicons are always so willing to send someone else’s kids to die. Now they want to take Health Care from millions to give the FAT CATS MORE TAX BREAKS. How Sad and Greedy the Upper Crust is!!!!!!

  • Webb says:

    Well…I guess Total Repeal is No Longer an option with Obamacare.
    Will this legislation become a Broken Promise…
    We Wait…Price Options at Hospitals, Doctors and Drug Companies would be nice to know what we would pay for services.

  • Howard A Milor Jr. says:

    Vote NO on the house healthcare bill

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Gotta do something, bro. care su$$s and has basically destroyed my Ins.!

      1. Retired says:

        It [ ACA ] has also damaged what kind of care the elderly get . The same goes for drugs that the Dr. prescribes, the Insurance now is saying you don’t have that disease so now you get something different . The Cheapest of cheap generics.

  • Roadrunner says:

    Why can’t we be like Canada. They have free health care, why not us. Increase Taxes by 10 bucks per working person, and that would pay for it. I am sick and tired of Insurance Companies, and Doctors, and Hospitals getting filthy rich of the poor.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      It’s called socialism, after a while you run out of everybody else’s money! Why does everyone with a serious problem in Canada come here for their problem, and their Doctors are basically on a salary!!

      1. Retired says:

        It is getting worse than at VA centers in the US..

        1. Walter Flatt says:

          TRAVELING HUNDREDS OF MILES AND WAITING MONTHS TO GET TREATMENT. WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO TO ANY DOCTOR, HOSPITAL, AND PHARMACY OF OUT CHOICE. THIS WOULD BE SAVE TAX PAYERS BILLIONS A YEAR AND WE COULD GET A LOT BETTER CARE. MOST DOCTORS ARE FOREIGN, A LOT ARE MUSLIMS AND I AS A COMBAT VETERAN DO NOT FEEL GOOD WITH A MUSLIM TAKING CARE OF ME, AFTER ALL, WE ARE AT WAR WITH THEM.

          1. Retired says:

            That will never Change Until the VA gets a good house cleaning from the top down , Moving the top people does not solve the problem . Our Clinic near by is good . Starting to see the same draw backs as a retired military since the ACA took affect .

      2. Walter Flatt says:

        WE SHOULD START TAKING CARE OF OUR OWN, FIRST.

    2. Webb says:

      Socialized Medicine…Puts your needs at the Back of The Line!
      Ask the folk’s in England…and Canada!
      I agree on Cost of Hospitals and Doctors and Drugs…This is where Cost Reduction is needed!
      But Government Interference in our Healthcare…No Thanks

    3. Walter Flatt says:

      WHY DONT YOU TALK TO CANADNIANS AND ASK THEM WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT THE CARE THEY ARE GETTING. THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE HEALTH CARE THEY ARE GETTING NOT. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, NOTHING IS FREE, SOMEONE HAS TO PAY FOR IT.

      YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO A DOCTOR OR HOSPITAL. STAY AT HOME AND USE HOME REMEDYS.
