Trump fails to repeal Obamacare, gives up

Post by Ben Mothafuckin' Reilly on Fri Mar 24, 2017 8:43 pm

Washington (CNN)House Speaker Paul Ryan sensationally pulled his Obamacare repeal bill from the floor Friday, a day after Fake President Trump had threatened to walk away from health care reform if he didn't get a vote.

After a dramatic day on Capitol Hill, Ryan rushed from the White House to Capitol Hill to tell Trump he did not have the votes to pass the measure, the culmination of seven years of Republican efforts to eradicate President Barack Obama's proudest domestic achievement.

As Ryan presented the dire vote totals in his meeting with Trump, he explicitly recommended the President pull the bill, according to a senior GOP official. The decision was ultimately Trump's. Trump made the call at 3 p.m., as the rest of House leadership was gathering in Ryan's office.

Ryan told fellow Republicans they are "moving on" from health care, Reps. Andy Barr and Bill Flores told CNN.

The decision to delay the vote marks an acute embarrassment for Trump, who had gambled big by presenting holdout House conservatives with a take-it-or-leave it ultimatum on Thursday night and put his own credibility on the line.


It also puts Ryan in a much weakened political position, after being defied by his own conference, which seems just as unsuited to governing in the Trump era as it was when it was effectively a protest coalition under Obama.

It became clear during a day of intense political intrigue Friday that despite fierce arm-twisting by Trump, Ryan and other leaders that the votes simply were not there to pass the bill and the leadership and the White House were headed for a lopsided defeat.

They were unable to narrow the schism between Freedom Caucus conservatives, who believe the bill keeps to much of Obamacare intact and moderates who worry they will pay an electoral price if millions of Americans lose health insurance.

The House meltdown on Obamacare repeal has perilous implications for the American health care system, with Republicans apparently unable to repeal the law but also unwilling to fix the deficiencies that the White House says will collapse the law.

Politically, Friday's momentous events will race like wildfire through the Republican Party's conservative, establishment base which has been told repeatedly by candidates that the first order of business with the GOP President in the White House would be the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

I think people are starting to see trump for what he is and that he does not care for Americans. He only cares for those who blindly follow him. If he cared, he would never look to repeal something that helps millions. With something that will end up denying health care to millions.

This will be what ends up destroying Trump. He is banking on hate and even worse hoping for a terrorist attack to play off and create a climate of fear. Putin did this when he came to power and as seen. Never rescinded his power. This is why its best to allow egotistic narcissists to create their own downfall

This is the beginning of the end.  Without the savings from ending Obamacare, the Republicans can't engage the tax cuts issue.  Without tax cuts, they can't afford infrastructure improvements.  Without infrastructure improvements, they can hardly justify the $25-billion necessary for the wall.  

No healthcare, no influx to the economy from tax cuts.  No infrastructure improvements.  No wall.  No immigration halt.  Trump is the guy who could make the deal????  He can't even unzip his own fly.

Without healthcare, the next programs fall like dominoes.

Absolutely right, Obamacare repeal was the key to his whole ugly agenda. What does it say about him that he just rolled over?

He either thinks he has other tricks up his sleeve, or he's got no stamina for a long battle.

Pity that Nancy Pelosi's sarcastic ironic wisdom is lost on those thickos who put blind faith in the bliovating businessman with zero political experience.



TYK channel (video below) is the sort of outfit that some people sniff at. The very same people who constantly sniff the bliovator's butt. But the hosts talk sense.


Anyone who wants to see what raw passion looks like, should watch this in its entireity. I seriously thought Anna & Genk would combust in front of my eyes, they're brilliant!  Shocked  Laughing
