Have any of you ever read stories about ancient and/or modern armies that decided to essentially annihilate themselves by hurling men and material at fortresses that had no real strategic value?
I’m assuming you have, and at this point that is exactly what we’ve seen done (in the political arena) by the Republican Party – wasting everything in their arsenal to replace the absurd Obamacare laws.
Actually, let’s just be real here and admit that nothing was being replaced – all they were doing was attempting to rename the policy, mix in a bit of the “Conservative” private enterprise foolishness, and finish up the job of castrating the White working class through massive premiums, impossible to meet deductibles, and rising taxes needed to care for the degenerate, the self-inflicted unhealthy, and the Third-World conquerors of America.
Two more Republican senators declared on Monday night that they would oppose the Senate Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, killing, for now, a seven-year-old promise to overturn President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement.
The announcement by the senators, Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas, left their leaders at least two votes short of the number needed to begin debate on their bill to dismantle the health law. Two other Republican senators, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of Maine, had already said they would not support a procedural step to begin debate.
With four solid votes against the bill, Republican leaders now have two options.
They can try to rewrite it in a way that can secure 50 Republican votes, a seeming impossibility at this point, given the complaints by the defecting senators. Or they can work with Democrats on a narrower measure to fix the flaws in the Affordable Care Act that both parties acknowledge.
Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, conceded Monday night that “the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful.” He outlined plans to vote now on a measure to repeal the Affordable Care Act, with it taking effect later. That has almost no chance to pass, however, since it could leave millions without insurance and leave insurance markets in turmoil.
But President Trump was not ready to give up. He immediately took to Twitter to say: “Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!”
No, Donald, they won’t.
Mitchie Boy (who is a textbook definition of a cuck due to his marriage to an Asiatic) is already going forward with a plan to push a straight up vote to repeal Osamacare, but has already hit a wall due to dissenters in his own party guaranteeing that further humiliation is just down the road.
And while we’re on this subject, Mr. President, why did the whole “remove state lines” thing with medical insurance essentially vanish from the discussion?
You do see that the GOP is going to get REKT next year because of this, right?
You do understand that the White working class was rather loudly hoping and praying that the big insurance companies would be chastised for their Jew-like practice of jacking up premiums and deductibles year in and year out, right?
And you do realize that most White Americans that aren’t trapped in a dementia dream about “Muh Reagan” (they’re covered by Medicare for the most part already) have no appetite for bizarre Republican schemes that benefit nobody but the top few percent, right?
Please tell me you’re not oblivious to these facts, Donald.
