Trumpcare is dead. Update!

Courtesy of WaPo:

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. 

“We just pulled it,” President Trump told the Washington Post in a telephone interview. 

The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers – and the defeat represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. 

The decision also casts doubt on the GOP’s ability to govern and to advance other high-stakes agenda items, including tax reform and infrastructure spending. Ryan is still without a signature achievement as speaker – and the defeat undermines Trump’s image as a skilled dealmaker willing to strike compromises to push his agenda forward.

Trump has previously said that if this fails he wants to move on, so there is little chance the Republicans will attempt this again.

And let's face it they really don't want to anyway.

The response on Twitter was epic!




Now all we have to do is sit back and wait for the next Trump failure.

Update: Even Paul Ryan gets it.
Update 2: Trump says the real losers today were Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
No buddy, YOU were the loser today. And so were the rest of the Republicans.

By the way according to the CBO Obamacare is in no danger of "failing" anytime soon.

      It's dead. People will always pay attention to healthcare, and there's no reason to think the GOP could magically summon up enough votes with Congress members willing to lose their seats. Trumpcare is not dormant and it is not a zombie. It's dead.

      Delete
    6. They'll quietly tweak it behind the scenes until they've got enough votes on board. Then it will suddenly come before a vote and pass.

      This is how they do things.

      But first they'll kill it by starving it to death. They control the budget, so they'll withhold money. This is now they killed public education. They cut funding and added unfunded mandates until schools simply couldn't maintain the quality education they had always provided. Then the set up unreasonable goals and pointed and said "See? Failing!"

      They'll do the same to Obamacare. They already choked the funding that would allow the insurance companies to operate in some of the smaller markets. They'll keep doing that until it can't function or enough people complain.

      The only way to really save it is to make sure the Democrats have a majority in 2018 and 2020.

      BUT if congress uses their CRA they could permanently cripple the ACA.

    In a statement shortly after the bill was pulled, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said, "So much for the 'Art of the Deal,' poking fun at Trump's 1988 book.

    "Ultimately, the TrumpCare bill failed because of two traits that have plagued the Trump presidency since he took office: incompetence and broken promises," Schumer said. "In my life, I have never seen an administration as incompetent as the one occupying the White House today."

    "They can’t write policy that actually makes sense, they can’t implement the policies they do manage to write, they can’t get their stories straight, and today we’ve learned that they can’t close a deal, and they can’t count votes," the New York senator continued, adding, "I also have seen a president break as many promises to working people as this president has done in just over two months."

    http://www.businessinsider.com/democrats-trumpcare-trump-schumer-pelosi-2017-3

    The Republican healthcare plan just failed because Trump is bad at making deals

    ... Unfortunately, unlike the general endeavor of being a "famous, rich business guy," there is no way to adjust the presidency, so it's heavier on the marketing aspects and lighter on the dealmaking aspects.

    It's a president's job to make deals. And Trump's lack of talent for dealmaking is going to be a major liability for him in office.

    Republicans lied about healthcare for years, and they're about to get the punishment they deserve

    It's hard to decide which would be the more politically damaging outcome for Republican politicians: passing the American Health Care Act, and therefore owning the premium increases and coverage losses it would cause; or not passing the bill, and therefore failing to do anything that can be framed as "repealing Obamacare."

    Each option is a political nightmare for Republicans for the same reason: Each would amount to an admission that Republicans cannot deliver what they have promised for years on healthcare.

    For years, Republicans promised lower premiums, lower deductibles, lower co-payments, lower taxes, lower government expenditure, more choice, the restoration of the $700 billion that President Barack Obama heartlessly cut out of Medicare because he hated old people, and (in the particular case of the Republican who recently became president) "insurance for everybody" that is "much less expensive and much better" than what they have today.

    They were lying. Over and over and over and over, Republicans lied to the American public about healthcare.

    It was impossible to do all of the things they were promising together, and they knew it.

    Then they unexpectedly won an election and had to face the question of whether they would break all of their promises — or only some of them.

    And if they don't pass the AHCA, well, then they'll have broken all of the promises.

    Either way, Republicans will have to face an angry electorate in 2018 and 2020 that did not get what it was promised. The exposure of Republican healthcare lies will do grave damage to the party, and that damage will be richly deserved.

    Hillary Clinton on Friday cheered the cancellation of a vote on a GOP ObamaCare repeal bill, calling it a "victory for all Americans" but cautioning that "this fight isn't over yet."

    Clinton tweeted an official statement along with a handful of stories from people who have benefitted from ObamaCare.

    "Today was a victory for the 24,000,000 people at risk of losing their health insurance, for seniors, for families battling the quiet epidemic of addiction, for new moms and women everywhere," Clinton said in her statement.

    "Most of all, it's a victory for anyone who believes affordable health care is a human right. We cannot forget: This victory happened because people in every cover of our country committed their time and energy to calling their representatives, showing up at town hall meetings, and making their voices heard."

    "The fight isn't over yet," she added, saying that "we will have to push back on future bad ideas and embrace good ones to make health care more affordable."

    Clinton ended her series of tweets with a call to "continue to stand up, organize, resist, put forth good ideas to improve the existing system and people's lives."

    9. DNC's strategy was flawed. Google it if you're open to facts. They ASS U MEd that those that voted for Obama would vote for Hillary. They failed to deliver on past promises. They took voters for granted. They didn't listen to their boots on the ground. They abandoned their 50 state strategy. They have been giving up control at the local and state level for almost a decade. They failed to make a case to the common people as to why they should give the Democrats one more chance when they have failed to deliver on previous promises. And most of all, they failed to continually remind them of what had been done for them.

      The last thing you need to tell an angry voter is you should have gone to college and gotten a better education because those jobs aren't coming back. That may be reality but that's not what they want to hear.

      Trump told them what they wanted to hear and he made them feel like he was listening and that he cared. Sure it was all a con and he is a big fat liar. But this was an election of emotions, not facts.

      The DNC blew it. Hillary should have paid more attention to what Bernie Sanders was doing. If she had pivoted and campaigned more like Bernie, if she had even picked him as a running mate, she probably would have won the electoral college and her popular vote would be even higher.

    New Poll Shows Trump’s Base Eroding, Approval Rating Sliding, as 60 Percent Find Him Dishonest

    ...Inside the numbers, Trump’s support is eroding among Republicans—dropping 10 points—and his support among white voters and men—two demographics whose support was crucial to his election win—has also dipped. Trump’s personal characteristics are also proving to be deeply unpopular. According to Quinnipiac’s nationwide survey conducted March 16–21, some 60 percent of Americans think the president is not honest and does not share their values; 66 percent believe he is not level-headed; and 57 percent say President Trump does not share their values.

    Kochs pledge millions to GOPers in 2018 -- if they vote no on health care bill

    The advocacy groups helmed by Charles and David Koch have unveiled a new pool of money for advertisements, field programs and mailings that would exclude those who vote for the health care bill they oppose on Thursday. The effort, which they described as worth millions of dollars, is an explicit warning to on-the-fence Republicans from one of the most influential players in electoral politics not to cross them.
    The Koch-aligned networks oppose the bill because they think it does not do enough to scale back former President Barack Obama's health care policies.

    "We want to make certain that lawmakers understand the policy consequences of voting for a law that keeps Obamacare intact," Americans for Prosperity president Tim Phillips said. "We have a history of following up and holding politicians accountable, but we will also be there to support and thank the champions who stand strong and keep their promise."

    It's like making a shit sandwich and then blaming your kids for not wanting to take a bite, I mean what the fuck level of mental idiocy does this asshole function under?

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-obamacare_us_58d59300e4b02a2eaab43e03?


    In the moments after it was announced that his health care bill was dead and pulled from consideration, President Donald Trump had pinpointed the culprit. Democrats, he explained, were to blame for the failure because they refused to provide him with any of their votes.

    “We had no Democrat support. We had no votes from the Democrats,” Trump explained. “With no Democrats on board, we couldn’t quite get there.”

    “When you get no votes from the other side ― meaning the Democrats ― it is a very difficult situation,” he said elsewhere.

    Given how divided the alt-right and moderate GOP Congress is, we might have the gift of seeing NONE of his bills make it through to a vote, or watching that asshole get impeached

    Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) says FBI Director James Comey is “tainted” by ties to the Clinton Foundation.

    “The swamp runs deep,” she wrote on Facebook. "Where are congressional ‘investigators’ on this conflict of interest issue?”

    “Why aren’t dots more clearly connected by those in authority, those privy to information that we peasants are not?” the GOP’s 2008 vice presidential nominee asked.

    "Why is tainted Comey still part of Team Trump? How long does he get to ride the train?”

    Republicans more afraid of voters than tRUMP!!!

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/24/us/politics/trump-white-house-health-care.html

    "WASHINGTON — When Speaker Paul D. Ryan arrived at the White House on Friday to inform President Trump that the health care bill he had made his first major legislative push could not pass, Mr. Trump had one reaction: He wanted revenge.

    Furious at rebellious Republicans who refused to back the measure, Mr. Trump demanded that defectors cast “no” votes for all to see — even if it meant the measure’s high-profile defeat, broadcast live on television.

    But over a lunch of chicken, brussels sprouts and twice-baked potatoes in the Oval Office, Mr. Ryan pleaded with Mr. Trump to reconsider.

    A loss could do lasting political damage to Republicans who supported the contentious bill, Mr. Ryan argued, especially those in competitive districts who were vulnerable to primary challenges. It would do nothing to isolate or punish the Freedom Caucus, the conservative faction that had resisted the measure all along, he added.

    And it could alienate rank-and-file Republicans needed to push through other challenging initiatives in the weeks to come, including an increase in the debt ceiling, a sweeping tax cut and the president’s promised $1 trillion infrastructure package."

    "The president of the United States and members of the party that controls Congress are saying that they see problems in the health care system and their plan is to stand by and do nothing while people suffer.

    This is breathtakingly cynical, and reveals the Republican Party’s priorities. Getting rid of the dreaded Obamacare at any cost is more important to Trump and his party than acting to improve the health care system for the people they represent."

    "Rather than try to help people, Trump will actively avoid helping. Even if you accept his highly debatable premise that the Affordable Care Act is irreparable, what he’s saying is that because he and the Congress his party controls failed at the first hurdle, they will now do nothing to solve the problems with the American health care system they themselves have been decrying for seven years.

    Indeed, the Trump administration instead has taken steps to suppress health insurance enrollment and make the ACA work worse. More may be coming."

    "At this point ― seven years and a day after Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law ― legislating and regulating to make its health insurance markets work better is a responsibility Trump and congressional Republicans accepted when they took their oaths of office.

    This isn’t “helping Obamacare,” it’s helping Americans. There’s no such thing as Obamacare anymore. It’s just the health insurance system.

    In the words of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Friday: “Obamacare’s the law of the land.”

    But if you’re one of those people who can’t afford your health insurance or your deductible, Barack Obama can’t help you anymore. Donald Trump can. And he just told you he won’t."
