Freedom Caucus Chairman: ‘Zero Chance’ for Tax Reform if Congress Doesn’t Start Now

July 14, 2017

House GOP Majority LeaderWASHINGTON – House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and other conservative members of the House of Representatives are calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to delay the August recess so Republicans have a better chance of passing parts of President Trump’s agenda.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday announced an August recess delay of two weeks.

“We’re almost at the 200-day mark,” Meadows said during a “Conversations with Conservatives” event today on Capitol Hill. “It’s not a good story.”

Meadows said Republicans would not be able to pass a tax reform package if they wait to begin the legislative process in September.

    Begin legislative process in September??? Surely you jest. So far we have Trumpcare passed in the House and pending in the Senate. That’s it. With both bills being effectively not healthcare, but cuts to government spending and tax benefits thrown to the wealthy, we see that nobody wants tax reform at the expense of working class people. Ryan’s bill dumps 23 million from healthcare and cuts Medicaid with more people denied healthcare, all to throw half a trillion dollars to Republican puppet masters, the 1% richest folks in the nation. It’s a tax plan, not healthcare repeal or replacement. McConnell’s secret bill is reputedly no better from what we know leaked from the smoke-filled back room wheeler dealing that’s going on as a legislative process that replaces committee hearings and public input. None of this answers the needs of Americans in an effective way, unless you are obscenely wealthy. Working class Americans get little and less than they have now. Come on 2018 elections so we can install congressmen who listen to their constituents who actually vote. They don’t want family members to die from deficient healthcare plans, or go bankrupt from higher premiums and co-pays for cancer and dread diseases. It’s still up to moderates to pull the correct lever, not succumb to pie-in-the-sky promises and rhetoric from the likes of Trump, currently a disaster and getting worse for America and Americans.

    Eight years they have had to redo Obama care. Give us the house, give us the senate, give us the white house, give us 60 senators gimme gimme gimme. Give me a break and do what the hell you were elected to do. There were several bills sent to Obama that were vetoed by our former “dear leader” so just send the best one back and should go thru with no issues. After all it was a good bill right? Spineless self centered morons.

    The lights have been turned on. There are no Republicans or Democrats. They are ALL Progressive/Communists and we know now McConnell, Ryan, McCain, Graham and others are on the Soros payroll. There is no question they won’t get anything done, no Repeal, no Tax Deductions no nothing. They never had a Repeal, it was a lie, they used it to get reelected. We know that, if they did they would have given it to Trump immediately.

    Come 2018 they must all go. Trump must go on the road and tell the country what was not done and why it was not done, and who stopped it. In fact he needs to have daily updates on Twitter by him naming those who are enemies of the people. They are the Enemies Within. They need to be taken down and soon or this country is gone.

    Trump was a gift, our last rodeo. If he doesn’t clean the nest of vipers out, take Obama, Hillary, Podesta, Lynch, Holder and all down then they will get back the power even if it means killing.

        Dear friend, millions of us know and that is why Trump elected, we can’t get passed the Main Media or the many libs on the net to get the message out, but we have to keep trying.
