Ryancare Fails In The House

The announcement:

My reaction:

My prediction:

The good news is that we are done with healthcare. Trump got out before he could sink further into the quicksand. The bad news is the Republican Congress is likely useless on other issues.

  1. Chill dude, its been like 62 days. During one of his speeches he said he hoped to star the wall within his first year. Give him time.

  2. You should listen to Slattery and Duke and the plan they put together.

    They endorse a Single Payer coverage scheme.

  3. Sasha Abramsky, Haaretz, Aug 12, 2016:

    “For years now, Republican leaders have shamelessly nurtured a neo-Fascist sensibility among their base, seeking their votes with evermore-extreme policy platforms, then belatedly withdrawing from those positions once in office.”

  4. It does seem that Republicans have failed to deliver, from the Republican Revolution in the 90s to the Tea Party to today. Likely will again.
    I see you have changed your avatar again. You change you pic like a lady changes her clothes.

  5. Michael Savage was upset that Trump was prioritizing this, he said rumor is that he was forced to by Ryan’s congress, this was their hobby horse. Savage said Trump should have made the economic agenda of his rust belt coalition who tipped the election for him as priority number one. I don’t like Obamacare, but then again I don’t like the system we had before Obamacare either. I’d rather have a single payer system, how on earth is anyone going to afford new health insurance in middle age when the whole reason they need it is their old policy vanished when the Free Trade Treason Lobby sent their job to China.

  6. Start by getting a lot of stuff outside of the $$$Healthcare$$$ racket. Why did I have to saddle my insurance company with nearly $300 bill to see a Dr. for a prescription for simple conjunctivitis when such eyedrops could have simply been sold next to Aspirin in the grocery store? Why can’t women get the pill over the counter or men buy their Viagra ED meds next to the rubbers? Find little ways to get the cost out of health care. It doesn’t need to be done in one all encompassing bill.

  7. Obama did F up with Obamacare. He could have handed out “citizenship” documents to the wetbacks and sealed the deal for the democrats so they could go single payer what they really wanted, but he wasted the political capital of his first two years on a retread of “Hillarycare.”

  8. Health care costs more than rent these days, most Americans are just getting by and can’t afford a second rent payment in their budget. Take Soros corrupt money and use it to help give us a single payer system. Get the 30+ million illegal aliens out too and health care costs will go down.

  9. Ryan needs to go. I’ve said that for a long time. The punk is weak and he’s anti-White. Now, he’s just shown that as the Speaker of the House (and third in line for the presidency), that he can’t even bring in a health bill that other Republicans will support in the house. Big loser and and a big albatross around Trump’s neck.

  10. Paul Ryan is arrogant to the point of stupidity or he would have asked himself why The Donald, who likes to slap TRUMP on EVERYTHING didn’t do so this time and his surrogates were calling his plan RYANcare.

    I believe Trump rope-a-doped Ryan and his Randroids but good. He knew he could count on the Democrats to fight it every step of the way and broadcast everything Ryan put in the bill that would shaft the Blue State people who voted for him, scaring the moderate Republicans into putting concessions which would alienate the Truconservatives. Trump was smart enough to know that RINO’s bill would have not only saved Obamacare but in such a way that it would become his party’s (Rosemary’s) baby.

    I love how Trump blamed the Democrats who are chortling over their very Pyrrhic Victory at the moment. They stumped the Trump! Yay! And I also love how dramatically he gave up and declared he was walking away from the healthcare to concentrate on the other things on his agenda. I get the notion that the Republicans coerced Trump into helping them sell this plan by tying it to projects he wants to get off the table, but now they’ve rattled so many cages and pissed off so many people that they have no choice but to help him get the rest of his programs passed.

    Let Obamacare explode so that the voters will take out their frustration on the Democrats and even certain Republicans, like Ryan. NO health care plan and millions of uncovered voters will bring BOTH sides of the aisle to the table and once it does, Trump needs to further hold their feet to the fire by canceling taxpayer funded coverage, grants and subsidies to ALL federal employees and tell them that whatever plan they come up for the American people is the one they and their families will be on.

    Call it AMERICARE. How likely do you think that silly bitch Pelosi would read it before she signed it? How likely do you think the objections of Ryan and the Randroids to the single payer option would fade away?

    My conservative friends like to rail against “socialized medicine.” Look: If hospitals can’t turn away the indigent sick, you already have socialized healthcare. Who’s going to pay the costs of that patient who can’t pay for himself? You are; I am; she is; the insured person is, by government fiat on the insurance company; the taxpayer is. The costs have been socialized. Now we’re just arguing about how, precisely, the money will flow.

    If poor people and old people get their healthcare paid for out of current public funds, you have socialized healthcare. Medicaid and Medicare are socialized healthcare. What else are they? The bigger part of our healthcare system is socialized. We’re just arguing about the price.

    You nailed it. What we have is semi-socialized care where one group of people get it, but don’t pay for it, and the other group of people pay for it, but don’t get it. Not only that but the criteria for qualifying for these programs is very arbitrary and subjective. You have no idea what your circumstances must be to qualify for it. Some bureaucrat decides that and if that bureaucrat hates White people on general principles, it doesn’t matter how much your need it, your White ass isn’t going to get it.

    To me, it makes more sense to simply institute a ten percent national sales tax and a ten percent payroll tax to pay for single payer coverage that would at least take care of basic health care emergencies and catastrophic care and would ensure that pre-existing conditions would not bar anyone from treatment. The insurance companies could offer supplemental insurance plans for people who are very picky about what doctor they see and other goodies. You can still keep people in the industry employed in their call centers by turning the insurance company into benefits plan managers.

    I think if we instituted such a program, small business creation would explode, people would not do as little as they possibly could to hold onto jobs they hate. Medical expenses would not bankrupt families. I don’t understand why the right is so resistant to a plan like this.

    It’s like the folks at AltRight.come said in another thread, the well-off would not take a hit in their healthcare, because just like public schools, the hospitals and clinics in neighborhoods that generate higher property taxes would be better, than their counterparts in poorer areas, but at least people stuck in poor areas could get basic care.

    Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.

    Well, Donald Trump told us to watch Judge Jeanine’s show tonight.

    I don’t have a TV but his tweet piqued my curiosity. Found replay on Youtube.

    First words out of her mouth?

    JJ: ‘Paul Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House.’

    His critics are too stupid to realize he didn’t make billions, make deals all around the world and outwit the best shysters in NY by being stupid and clumsy.
