‘Repeal and replace’ plan
forces state-run exchanges to
grapple with uncertain future

Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr.

As Congress plans the repeal of Obamacare, government websites set up to sell insurance under the program are beginning to grapple with an uncertain future and whether they can adapt to a GOP model down the road. State-run exchanges in more than a dozen states cost billions to set up, and they serve as the public delivery system for Obamacare-compliant plans and federal subsidies that make coverage more affordable for low- and moderate-income Americans. Yet, they’re also the “front-door” for determining whether customers qualify for the federal-state Medicaid program or tax credits on the individual market —

Comments:
"Repeal and Kill it." First, have people forgotten during the last two years of the last administration, Congress KNEW that 0bamaCare would implode by 2017, but kept kicking the can to fix (repeal) it down the road to where we are now. This is no surprise to those snakes on both sides of the aisle. Second, before it existed, and was fraudulently to US to help "20 million" uninsured (welfare and illegal aliens), what was working before? Tort reform and health insurance competing across state lines has been outright ignored.

Tort reform does not belong in Congress. Read the Constitution. This is a state issue!!

Repeal? Are you kidding? What repeal?? There is going to be NO repeal. Unless of course you are stuck in some kind of utopia mindset that simply doesn´t exist. This is one of the main reasons this monstrosity is so hard to get anything done on. There is NO repeal forthcoming. Trump demands keeping certain parts.

Republicans will not repeal or replace anything. If their lips are moving they´re lying.

Uncertain future?!?
The future was uncertain from the beginning! In fact, it was certain to fail. They were just uncertain how to manage the failure.

US planning to create ´Space Corps´
as sixth branch of armed forces
Independent [UK], by Fiona Keating    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/2/2017 3:37:13     Post Reply
The House Armed Services Committee has voted to create a US "Space Corps", which would become a new branch of the armed forces and incorporate the current space missions of the US Air Force. If the US Space Corps goes ahead, it would be the first new military service in the country since 1947. The move has caused consternation as committee members of the panel say they were only recently informed, giving them little time to protest against the proposal. Michael Turner, Republican senator of Ohio, said he first heard about the proposal last week, when it appeared before the subcommittee on strategic force.

U.S. President Donald Trump will speak with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday, calls that come as frustration builds in the White House over North Korea´s nuclear program and overcapacity in the steel market. The talks come ahead of meetings he will hold with both leaders on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7-8 where trade practices are expected to be high on the agenda. Trump, who pledged a hard line on trade during his campaign for office, has been weighing new quotas or tariffs on steel imports for national security reasons and plans to discuss his

Damascus, Syria - A series of car bomb explosions, including a suicide attacker who blew himself up after being surrounded by security forces, rocked the Syrian capital on Sunday, killing at least eight people and wounding a dozen more, state TV reported. State media said security forces intercepted the two other car bombs, suggesting they were controlled explosions. Footage on state TV from the scene of one explosion, along the road to the airport, showed at least two scorched vehicles. The closed-off street was littered with debris, while security men roamed the area. Footage from Tahreer Square in central Damascus

Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, has had a rough couple of weeks. Yet, however many setbacks he might suffer over health care reform or other parts of the Republican agenda, he knows he has already won the biggest fight of all: the theft of a Supreme Court seat from President Obama, the installation of Justice Neil Gorsuch and the preservation of the court’s conservative majority for years to come. (Snip) Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., a staunch conservative in his own right, often seeks out points of compromise among the justices. On June 26, the court’s last opinion day, Justice Gorsuch appeared to be having none

After weeks of staying on the sidelines of the Senate´s Obamacare reform talks, President Trump dived into the debate this week with a characteristic mix of disciplined negotiating tactics and off-message detours. (Snip) But the president´s personal involvement has not come without its disruptions. Trump rankled GOP leadership Friday when he tweeted support for a healthcare strategy that would involve repealing Obamacare immediately and replacing it later with a new system — an approach he had personally criticized in the past and one that is favored only by the most conservative members of Congress.

President Donald Trump delivered a campaign-style speech heavy with patriotic themes and and support for American troops on Saturday night, and didn’t spare the news media from another dose of the criticism dished out earlier in the day on social media. “The fake news media is trying to silence us, but we will not let them, because the people know the truth,” the president said in a speech to the “Celebrate Freedom” event at Washington’s Kennedy Center. “I’m president, and they’re not.” (Snip) The speech, heavy on praise for the military and law enforcement, and for the role of religion in public life, came days ahead of the

17 Gunmen Killed in Mexico, Officials Say

Mexican authorities said Saturday that 17 gunmen were killed on Friday in a clash with members of the security forces in the northwestern state of Sinaloa. Five municipal police officers were wounded in the clash, which began on Friday evening after the authorities received an emergency call that two men had been shot and killed outside a department store in the town of Villa Unión, about 15 miles southeast of the resort city of Mazatlán. Local police officers encountered the convoy of gunmen on a rural road outside Villa Unión, and the groups exchanged gunfire, (Snip) It was not clear if any of the gunmen had escaped.

Washington - So, with this latest toad jumping from our president’s mouth, is Donald Trump acting like a sexist pig or simply a pig? I proffer, a pig. I have no doubt that he would attack a man’s appearance in the same breathtakingly below-the-belt way if he felt humiliated by that man and had the ammunition. In his vile tweet about Mika Brzezinski, he called her crazy. He often tweets that women journalists — including me — are crazy. Yet in that same tweet about Mika, he called Joe Scarborough “psycho.” And he told the Russians in May that James Comey was “a nut job.” Some, including Scarborough, think Trump goes after women

The best defense is a good offense, President Trump contended in a clutch of early-evening tweets Saturday in which he seemed to argue he should keep up his Twitter habit. “The Fake & Fraudulent News Media is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media,” he wrote at 6:02 p.m. “But remember, I won the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat #FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN!” Six minutes later, he added a stinger: “I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!

Keep Tweeting, Mr. President

The more the media and the establishment politicians scream about the President’s tweets, the more obvious it becomes that he should keep tweeting. President Trump has over 33 million followers on Twitter and his tweets are a terrific way to connect with his supporters without the filter of the liberal media. This week he tweeted about critical issues such as the House passage of “Kate’s Law” and the “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act.” These bills fulfill the President’s campaign promises to take decisive action against the threat of illegal aliens in this country. He also tweeted about his meeting with the President of South Korea and his

That is, not before wishing "the great people of Canada" and his "new found friend" Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a Happy Canada day.

A Democratic congressman has proposed convening a special committee of psychiatrists and other doctors whose job would be to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to serve in the Oval Office. Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner. But the U.S. Constitution´s 25th Amendment does allow for a majority of the president´s cabinet, or ´such other body as Congress may by law provide,´ to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants his social network to fill the role that churches and social clubs once did in communities. During a speech at the first Facebook Communities Summit last week, Zuckerberg said membership in all kinds of groups has declined in the last several decades. "That´s a lot of of people who now need to find a sense of purpose and support somewhere else," said said, promoting Facebook´s large community-support groups as a substitute. In fact, bringing people closer together is so important that "we´re going to change Facebook´s whole mission to take this on," Zuckerberg

Former President Barack Obama challenged President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement, describing it as the “absence of American leadership.” “In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership, can still give our children a fighting chance,” Obama said during a speech in Indonesia on Saturday.

The first lady issued a statement to DailyMail.com, claiming Brzezinski does not know her, hours after an explosive interview with the MSNBC broadcaster appeared online.

As usual, President Trump is outraging the political/media establishment, who all assume that his early morning tweets yesterday zinging the Morning Joe odd couple, “hitting back ten times as hard” as wife Melania once characterized his tactical doctrine, were the result of some form of derangement.

ICYMI, President Trump’s tweets this morning are sparking calls for everything from officially declaring him “incapacitated” to serve as president, to the commencement of impeachment proceedings, to the now-familiar anxiety inspired by proof that our commander in chief is completely unhinged.

Meanwhile, Tillerson’s sitting around doing what? He can’t even appoint his own deputies. The power seems to have gone to the son-in-law. This is the Romanovs. Just a thought, the Romanovs. Is it?” He later added,
