The Old Boys Club, the Senate, failed to repeal and replace ObamaCare
With all that Global and Big Pharma money up for grabs, one has to ask, did Mitch McConnell ever really intend to fix ObamaCare?
Time to push TERM LIMITS in the House and the Senate. With one stroke of Trump’s pen we could get rid of McCain, Graham, McConnell, Maxine Waters, Pelosi, and Schumer, problems to freedom and America, all. Our lawmakers are becoming senile.
ObamaCare creates more jobs for the IRS than doctors. So how do more IRS agents keep you healthier than a doctor?
The Senate should revisit the history of Obama’s deeply flawed HealthCare bill: ObamaCare is/was quite simply BAD LEGISLATION and as so, it is unsustainable.
As a law, ObamaCare was never crafted with legislative integrity. It was passed by Democrats with not a single Republican voting for it. It could not have become the law of the land had there not been legislative shenanigans used by Harry Reid to force it through.
We call ObamaCare a coercive law. There were people being forced to buy HealthCare Insurance they neither needed nor wanted. Coercive laws and coercive (big brother) government is the biggest threat to our Republic (and to the world) at this time.
In 2009 Harry Reid was confident he “just” had the 60 votes to get ObamaCare passed; however according to congressional rules such a bill could not originate in the Senate; it was a revenue bill. So Reid went ahead and found an old (passed) Senate bill HR3590 (a military housing bill) and stripped the bill of its original language, thereby creating ObamaCare. Huh? Duh? You get it? That’s right. ObamaCare began with a confused identity.
There were other problems to making this law: Way back then the house wanted to make some changes to the bill and the house-amended version was scheduled to go back to the Senate for final approval. Unfortunately in the interim democratic Senator Teddy Kennedy died, and was replaced by a Republican. Hello! Reid no longer had the 60 votes to get ObamaCare passed so once again he had to resort to underhand dealings.
This is what happened: The House would pass the Senate’s original bill (with no changes). Then they would table all the changes they wanted AND THIS THEY CALLED RECONCILIATION. Then they would pass the reconciliation bill. Hello! This was legislating? Excuse me? Of course it was all illegal but you see it was all so complicated that they got away with it.
Do you wonder ObamaCare is difficult to undo? It was a bill crafted from the FAR LEFT with no support from the RIGHT. So do you wonder the Freedom Caucus recently reacted by trying to craft a bill from the FAR RIGHT. That is how it goes: Action and Reaction. There has to be BALANCE TO CREATE SUSTAINABLE LEGISLATION. Trump understands this.
We all knew that ObamaCare was in no way created by politicians; but instead by Big Pharma for Big Pharma. Did not Big Pharma even bribe a judge when this patently illegal bill was challenged in court? Sadly the bill included Saul Allinsky benefits and so with some (unethical Americans and illegal immigrants along for the ride) it became popular. Many eager to ride the gravy train.
The old Harry Reid/Obama WAY OF DOING BUSINESS (which is not good for America) has to change.
One bill, one subject
Enough time for legislators to read the bill
Time for we the people to study and discuss the bill.
An up & down vote (60 majority as necessary)
Could anything be more simple?
Why is this relevant?
What is essentially wrong with ObamaCare is that TWO different legislating sets have been combined into one WELFARE and HEALTHCARE are two different sets with different applicable rules and two vastly different IDEAL operating bases. So a good lawmaker makes different laws for each of them. With Healthcare consumer choice and free competition are the senior data, with Medicaid the senior datum is compassion. Americans are not unkind and help where they can, if they can without bankrupting the nation.
NOTE WELL: there is a long, long history of the wily Obama (with the help of Boehner) socking it to Congress. There is also a long history of the effete GOP establishment going along to get along, pocketing bribes from corporate America, especially bribes from Big Pharma. (Investigating these bribes over the last eight years would be a fruitful Gongressional Investigation)
Then we can put that all behind us? Let’s all move forward in integritywith a new sheriff in town.
POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY
With Obama’s legacy on the line now and the House having passed the first GOP HelathCare bill, the global forces (historically lined up with McConnell and the Republican RINO Senators) are coming into play. We are talking a lot of money here.
Add into the mix that good conservative men, Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee want a full repeal. The Tea Party is also crying loud and clear for full repeal as promised.
Trump’s dealing skills and leadership will be put to the test as he gets good HealthCare for America passed by the Senate.
For those uncommitted to supporting Trump on Health Care,consider this: It is possible to put a man (unrestrained) in a pot with a comfortable temperature. He is sitting there comfortable so of course he doesn’t jump out. Then increase the temperature 5 degrees every half hour and, guess what? Eventually you can boil that man alive. I don’t know how true this story is but I do know that using GRADIENTS.is a pragmatic way to go.
Trump cares about the middle man. He wants us all to have GREAT HEALTHCARE. He wants to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. But he also wants good legislation, a functioning law that will last and bring Healthcare costs down. He also wants to balance the budget and it seems HealthCare is making us insolvent. The Senate (composed mainly of men of good will) would be wise to have Trump’s back for his are good goals, much needed by America right now.
After TrumpCare squeaked through the house, what was the worst that happened? We had movie star Cher (worth millions) lamenting that she can no longer get free asthma medication. LOL. . The House Bill is brilliant. It is also kind and compassionate, not taking away care from those who desperately need Healthcare. Trump & Price & Pence have crafted a Healthcare bill that will dumb down the protests, yet over time still get to the the promised land. What is the promised land? Getting Healthcare out of Government.
The new Trump HealthCare bill passed by the House rolls back ObamaCare on a gradient. That it still keeps some parts of the HealthCare organization (not the bill itself) is a plus, not a negative. I talk here of the parts of the organization running smoothly. Over the last eight years it is not just the the bill made changes, Medicine itself was changing, with new systems, new protocols, new HMOs and many, many new staff who have been trained. Trump wants to keep America employed. These are PRAGMATIC CONCERNS not to be sacrificed to ideology. Handle the potential upsets of today, but keep the eye on the mountain and we get there tomorrow. Define “get there”: as getting Government out of Healthcare.
The main thing that has to be addressed is that the way Congress has been operating for the last eight years serving global rather than America, HAS TO CHANGE.
The very first thing to fix is weed out the old guard, (term limits) for they are going to find it the hardest to change. It is also they who are more likely to have tarnished moral compasses, and who have exploited the system. (bribes, blackmail and just plain self interest) Each vote cast as a lawmaker should not be about stakeholders, but rather for the greatest good.
Failing to repeal and replace ObamaCare is dangerous to to the GOP in 2018, and it is also dangerous to the FREEDOM OF AMERICA and the FREEDOM OF THE WORLD.
Alinsky’s radical rules are a simplification of Lenin’s plan for conquest of the world. In Lenin’s writings “we the people” are called “Useful Idiots” to be scammed, manipulated and used. It is planned to use our need for healthcare to entrap us.
- Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
- Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
- Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
- Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
- Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
- Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
- Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
- Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people
Senators should also GIVE TRUMP HIS DUE. He is the right man for his time. He is very deserving of GOP support.
Trump is tasked to save the world from global corruption, from a global BIG BROTHER who wants to destroy America. For Trump to succeed he desperately needs the full, unqualified support of a principled GOP Senate, a principled GOP of Congressmen, excited and active Tea Party volunteers, an army of Trump Train social media supporters and WE THE PEOPLE.
He doesn’t have all that many clean hands around him to help him DRAIN THE SWAMP.
