Now Obamacare brings chaos to the Senate
as Democrats vow to bring all business to a
halt over repeal effort - and leaders consider
CANCELING August vacation to finally pass*

Daily Mail [UK], by Nikki Schwab

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/19/2017 7:08:19 PM

As Senate Republicans write an Obamacare repeal behind closed doors, their Democratic colleagues plan to protest the GOP´s moves in public. Politico reported that starting Monday night, Democrats will halt Senate business by turning down ordinary requests, like scheduling votes or lengthening committee meetings, in order to disrupt business and highlight what the Republicans are up to. This comes at the same time some Senate Republicans are urging their peers to cancel August recess, in order to finish the health care repeal and move on. With Democrats in the minority, the only thing the party can do is put up procedural hurdles.

One thing you can say about Democrats is that they do everything in lock step unity with many Tepublicans falling in line. Whereas the Republicans are like the Keystone cops after a night at their favorite bar. In spite of the current majority, the Dems are still running things. Republicans consistently give in to fear of getting negative press. That´s what drives them. No guts no glory. Gutless pathetic buffoons they are.

You know those screaming and badly behaved kids that some parents bring to the grocery store? You know how annoying they are?

That´s today´s dem party.

Remember when they called Republicans obstructionist?

Fox Business News has been discussing the need for them to stay in session and GET SOMETHING DONE! Sorry to shout, but our Congress - both houses - is a disaster. There are rays of hope, but the culture of lackadaisicalness (is that a word?) must go. And the backbiting, manipulating, grandstanding, and posturing that so many of the so-called “leaders” do incessantly.

It may be the most noxious Swamp.

Wasn´t Obamacare rammed thru by the Dems without any input from the Repubs or any votes from them either. If it was the way to do business then, seems like it would works now. Stay in Washington Repubs and do your job....!!

#2 – You are being too kind calling the Republicans, “Gutless pathetic buffoons…”

They are not gutless, they are not stupid, nor are they feckless. They are Uniparty traitors who sold out the American people decades ago. Notice “some Senate Republicans” (and just who might that be) are asking colleagues to cancel their August recess (yeah, right). If that is happening (with Fake News abounding that’s a big “if”) it shows that fear is beginning to creep into the ruling elite class. They sense their power leaving them and flowing towards Trump at an ever-quickening pace. Our President grows stronger every day.

To me, it just makes the democrats look small. Anyone with a mild inkling of changing back their vote in support of a democrat would have to be wondering why. They are a fringe party with no clear path forward to secure the populous trust again.

My thoughts are with #8. Let President Trump use recess appointments to replace the Obama holdovers with his own people and finally get some sludge out of the swamp.

I doubt that the feckless GOP leadership will get anything through in August, anyway. Even if they get their act together and settle on an Obamacare replacement, will they go "nuclear" to pass it? Will McCain, Collins, Flake (and even McConnell) have the loyalty and courage to be rid of their precious Senate rules and traditions?

IMO, keeping the Senate in session will likely result in the worst of both worlds. Just let Obamacare collapse, and then there might be motivation on both sides of the aisle and voter pressure to do something about it before the 2018 elections. That would put the Republicans in the "drivers seat" - if they ever learn how to use their leverage.

I just can´t believe these Democrats. Over a thousand of them have been wiped out by Obamacare and yet they keep fighting to save it. It´s like those Japanese soldiers that fought for years after WWII ended because they couldn´t believe they lost. You would think those Democrats would beg Republicans to get rid of Obamacare but they seem incapable of learning their lesson.

Staying in session allows the opportunity to get a few things done. That would be nice. But more importantly, it eliminates the hostile, ready to kill Left from TV coverage of ´protest´ at town hall meetings in August. Imagine the ´I just ate a feces burger´ look on the Kneepads´ faces when the much anticipated, non stop evil Rebublicans getting hammered by ´average´, angry l eftist Americans in town halls doesn´t happen? Imagine how apoplectic the liberals that have planned these demonstration (and no doubt violence) will be when the Rebublicans eliminate the August recess and thus the town halls? This is two birds with one stone and should be a no brainer. But I expected the Rebublicans to screw it up.

Congress only shows up to pretend work 3 days a week. That´s when they aren´t on vacation every time you turn around. Those 3 days of pretend work are exhausting. They should give up their August vacation to finally do something that will earn their enormous paycheck for doing nothing.

Donald Trump has hit out at Barack Obama following claims the former President had knowledge of Russia trying to hack the US election but allegedly failed to do anything about it. The Washington Post reported on Friday that the CIA had top-level intelligence last August that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered an operation to help Trump win the US presidential race. Trump has now spoken out about the claims and questioned why Obama refused to act in an interview that is set to air Sunday on Fox & Friends Weekend. ´Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew

Washington - The closely guarded Senate health care bill written entirely behind closed doors finally became public Thursday in a do-or-die moment for the Republican Party´s winding efforts to repeal Obamacare. The unveiling of the 142-page bill marks the first time that the majority of senators get a look at the plan to overhaul America´s health care system. With Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pressing ahead for a vote next week, senators now only a handful of days to decide whether to support or vote against the bill.

President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the

Ex-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s testimony Wednesday should mark the definitive end of “Russia hacked the election” hysteria. Too bad it took so long to get to this point. Johnson told the House Intelligence Committee outright that the Russians failed to alter “ballots, ballot counts or reporting of election results.” Yes, it’s clear Russia (with Vladimir Putin’s full approval) orchestrated cyberattacks designed to influence the 2016 contest, and also pushed fake news. But the hack, and release via WikiLeaks, etc., of Democratic e-mails produced nothing game-changing. The biggest impact was to confirm the obvious: The Democratic National Committee favored Hillary Clinton from the
