Voters won´t forgive Republicans
if they fail to repeal ObamaCare

The Hill, by Tim Chapman

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 3/2/2017 5:54:29 PM

Two months into a new Congress and a bill to repeal ObamaCare has yet to move. Initially, Republicans had hoped to put a repeal bill on President Trump’s desk on his inauguration day. Then the timeline moved back to Presidents Day in February. As we head into March, the timeline threatens to slip again as a GOP plan to repeal and replace is coming under serious conservative criticism. The draft repeal plan leaked last week replaces parts of ObamaCare with a plan that centers on a refundable tax credit — a new program that conservatives fear could cost nearly as much

The fuse is lit and getting shorter. Trumps calls on Congress "All talk and no action" sound very true. Trump and his team better get on a strong offense or they will not survive past May 2017. I am sick of Obama care that I am on and I know a lot of people in the same boat. The government has no business being in the health insurance business.

Lemme see - we got the house, we got the senate, now we finally got the White House - wasn´t that the final part RINOs say they needed in the last 3 elections?

Damn straight they better REPEAL IT. Never heard the ´replace´...stuff. I don´t need OR WANT Feds to ´help me´ choose what type of insurance I need, want, or can afford - just get out of the damn way you weasels.

And you damn better repeal all of the Obamacare taxes I am paying too!

#4, I also have my doubts about The Hill which is why I noted that the author is the Chief Operating Officer for Heritage Action for America. If you are a conservative that should suggest some credibility.
But maybe not.

I live in Nebraska´s 2nd District. We just elected Republican Don Bacon to his 1st term, he is a retired Air Force Brigadier General. He may turn out to be a big weasel, since he is not going to hold actual in-person town halls like all his predecessors have done. Now I wonder if we elected a cringer and a weeny-boy. He won by a narrow margin, so if he caves on repealing Obamacare, the voters will turf him out next year.

Let´s just see how McCarthy, Ryan, and MCConnels play this thing out. We know Graham and McCain will vote no on repeal when it
gets to the Senate if ever, along with Snowe, and the rest of the RINOs following the lead of their real leader Schmuckie Shoomur. I don´t feel good about it at all. It will be a fake repeal and even worse fake replacement. But im waiting in patience and praying to God to help me keep my faith strong.

We all know this is true. Doesn´t matter if its from ´The Hill´ or not. I am extremely ticked off at these Rats. RepubliRats. We KNOW Mumbles McConnell is AGAINST anything that is GOOD for America so he will try to undermine it. Why in the world doesn´t Trump throw McConnell´s wife Elaine Chao out of the Office of Transportation, that he put her in charge of? THAT might get the chinless, spineless Mumbles McConnell´s attention.

As for Rat-Ryan, who knows? All I know is that THIS is all out war on these pieces of dog excrement. This country cannot survive this BS! How about letting US HAVE the SAME PLAN that Congress enjoys??!!

I don´t believe this story. Sure republicans would be upset with no new healthcare plan bt who else are they going to turn to. If nothing else,Trump has brought the advance of socialism to a screeching halt.

Trump has a lot more control over what happens at the border,using existing laws.ICE roundups are starting to happen and agents have more say so in doing their jobs.

Tom Cotton Nails It On The AHCA
Powerline, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: danvillebill- 3/22/2017 4:41:10     Post Reply
Sen. Tom Cotton announced today that he will not vote for the American Health Care Act in its present form. He released the following statement: "Despite the proposed amendments, I still cannot support the House health-care bill, nor would it pass the Senate. The amendments improve the Medicaid reforms in the original bill, but do little to address the core problem of Obamacare: rising premiums and deductibles, which are making insurance unaffordable for too many Arkansans. The House should continue its work on this bill. It’s more important to finally get health-care reform right than to get it fast."

Almost a year to the day she announced her last bid for federal office, Nevada Republican Sharron Angle on Tuesday announced a primary challenge to GOP Rep. Mark Amodei in the 2nd District. The 2010 Senate nominee ran for Senate again last year, losing to former Rep. Joe Heck in the GOP primary, 65 to 23 percent. The tea party favorite previously ran for the 2nd District when it was held by now Sen. Dean Heller. “The reality is the President can lead, but he cannot do it alone," Angle said in making her announcement.

Headlines about “the end of the republic” litter political commentary across the political landscape. They usually mark the beginning of a discussion of the merits of Donald Trump as president of the United States, but his ascendency is not the leading sign of a collapse of American society. For that, see a recent poll indicating a tectonic shift occurring in the political preferences of U.S. adults. When you consider current trends in cultural norms and widely held beliefs, you will see that we are headed toward the end of the American experiment.

I continue to worry about Steve Bannon. I see him in the White House photos, but he never has that sprightly Prince of Darkness gleam in his eye anymore. His governing philosophy is being completely gutted by the mice around him. He seems to have a big influence on Trump speeches but zero influence on recent Trump policies. I’m beginning to fear that he’s spending his days sitting along the wall in the Roosevelt Room morosely playing one of those Risk-style global empire video games on his smartphone.

Key Conservatives Come Around

Several key Republicans on Friday endorsed the health care overhaul bill crafted by GOP leaders and the White House, saying President Donald Trump had agreed to changes they favored minutes earlier during an Oval Office meeting. With a vote on the so-called American Health Care Act scheduled for this coming Thursday in the House, the news was welcomed by supporters of repealing and replacing the 2010 health care law. Just over a dozen Republican Study Committee members told reporters outside the West Wing that leadership of the conservative caucus is now a “positive yes” after the president signed off on

The latest poll by USA Today and Suffolk University carried some eye-opening numbers about public disapproval of the media´s aggressive attempts to run the country. It found that President Trump has a 47% approval rating and that 44% disapprove of him. That´s not surprising. The media talk about his unpopularity all the time. But here´s what they don´t talk about: their own numbers. Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of their job performance. A whopping 50% have an unfavorable opinion.

Most Americans are worried about our domestic crises. Obama left office after doubling the debt to $20 trillion. Near-zero interest rates over eight years have impoverished an entire generation of seniors — and yet remain key to servicing the costs of such reckless borrowing. Over the last eight years, GDP never grew at 3 percent annually, the first time we’ve seen such low growth since the Hoover administration. Obamacare spiked health-care premiums and deductibles while restricting access and reducing patient choices.

   

 



 
Today’s Political Polarization

Polarize” is a funny word. I hear it all the time, including from my own mouth. The country is polarized. The parties are polarized. President Trump is polarizing. I think that’s true, but I don’t think the word means what people think it means. First, let’s go to the dictionary. Merriam-Webster offers three definitions, the first two scientific and then this: “to break up into opposing factions or groupings, (e.g.) a campaign that polarized the electorate.” That looks right to me. But when people hear the word “polarized,” they think it means something like “the maximum distance” apart from each

In Monday’s Morning Jolt, Jim Geraghty usefully outlined some intriguing statements made by former Obama national intelligence director James Clapper regarding the FISA surveillance controversy. Clapper’s remarks, in an interview by NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on Sunday, are being taken as a blanket denial of the allegations that the Obama administration used the Justice Department and FBI to investigate Trump-campaign figures, potentially including Trump himself.

Trump Pushes GOP Health Care Bill

The unstoppable force of Republican promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act ran headfirst Tuesday into the immovable object that is conservative objections to key tenets of the legislation. Which side gives ground in the coming days could determine whether the GOP succeeds in its long-standing goal to overhaul the health care system. The stalemate, one day after Republicans released their long-awaited plan, quickly put the future of the legislation on shaky ground. Speaker Paul Ryan guaranteed his party would have the votes to pass the plan, while conservative lawmakers insisted that they have the votes in both the

The “Day Without a Woman” strike on Wednesday may mean a day with fewer smiles. While not every one plans to skip work, many who want to show solidarity with the growing feminist movement said they plan to strike from unpaid work that women disproportionately do, including cooking, cleaning and, some said, smiling. More specifically, fake smiling. Some feminists say the happy face they sport by habit — or on command — is a form of unpaid “emotional labor.”

CBS´ Leslie Moonves on Tuesday signaled his approval of the Trump administration´s deregulatory agenda, which could allow the network to buy up more TV stations and get more revenue from retransmission consent fees. "Overall, advertising is very strong. Our balance sheet is strong. So looking forward, the news out of CBS is pretty positive and I´m feeling very optimistic about the world," the exec said Tuesday. "Obviously, there is a lot of information coming out of Washington and although we are not the enemy of the people, we welcome the deregulations that are going on there."

Former President Barack Obama´s journey to French Polynesia was undertaken so he could write his memoir. Obama arrived at a luxury resort frequented by Hollywood stars in mid-March, though it was unknown at the time what he was doing there. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Obama is writing his White House memoir during his extended stay at the eco-friendly resort in French Polynesia´s atoll of Tetiaroa.

With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members.

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Sunday that Democrats are ready to work with President Trump to fix Obamacare if Republicans abandon their drive to repeal the law. The New York Democrat made the offer in the wake of Friday’s decision by Mr. Trump and House Speaker Paul D.

The first cocktail party at Barack Obama’s new office last month was certainly more casual than any he had hosted in recent years. The wine bore a random assortment of labels, as if assembled potluck-style. The self-serve appetizers were set out in the narrow hallway. The host, tieless, eschewed formal remarks, as a few dozen of his old administration officials — Joe Biden and former chief of staff Denis McDonough, as well as more junior ones — mingled in a minimalist wood-paneled suite that could be mistaken for a boutique law firm. “It was a bit of a shock to
