Trumpcare Bill Fails To Pass Congress!

Eddie Munster Paul Ryan - BIG LOSER TODAY

President Donald J. Trump suffered a major loss today. The "dealmaker" couldn't make the deal. 

Of course now Trump is now blaming the Democrats for the failure of the bill to pass. This is interesting since the Republicans hold a HUUUUUUGE majority in the House. 

Paul Ryan was hellbent on passing Trumpcare yesterday on the seventh anniversary of the signing of the Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare") into law.  Guess he and his cohorts won't be doing a circle jerk on that mean spirited goal of taking away healthcare from 24 million Americans.

One would only hope that Trump learned a lesson today.  That he is not the Emperor.  He is not the king.  He is the president of the United States and he will have to work with ALL of the members of Congress, including the Democrats and yes, the much hated Nancy Pelosi.  

Today was a good day for America folks. Twenty-four Americans didn't lose their health care.

Are their problems with the Affordable Care Act?  Absolutely!  Now let's work with the Democrats to fix it. Put the American people first. Of course the only answer is a single payer system.  Let's do it!

Trump has to learn how to lead, not bully and threaten Tweet.

Doesn't matter. Trump tried his best to help the American people. Obamacare is failing. It should be bankrupt by 2018. Practically no more insurers will sign up for Obamacare. The American people are the losers. Not Trump.
Trump said he's just going to wait it out. Then when Obamacare goes belly up I hope he tells the Dems to go fuck themselves. As should you too.

I am still puzzled as to how he blames this on Democrats when so many Republicans opposed the effort.

Trump never takes responsibility for his failures.

Maybe Trump will read your blog comments, my advice, bring together moderate Democrats and Moderate Republicans, and negotiate amendments to improve what needs to be improved.

Ron - I'm guessing there is a lot of talent in both parties. It's unfortunate about the animosity. It exists here in Canada as well - and probably elsewhere. And members just rooting for their own team won't rectify or solve the problems of the whole. Defeat can be a good thing. It can be humbling. We all have leanings one way or another for whatever reason. I try to keep my eye on policy no matter what the party. Getting things better is what's most important. And I'm truly not trying to speak platitudes.

I think Trump is taking the right shift on this ObamaCare is going to implode on it's own - why should Trump beg the Republicans to get a plan together?? Let Paul Ryan fail... seriously he is the worst.

I am of the opinion we should all get basic healthcare and as with Medicare Secondary pay up your services. Stop letting the insurances companies make all the money and provide little.

Ron said...

I agree with you Melissa. Medicare for all and supplementary insurance just like seniors have now. The government has an obligation to take care of it's citizens. No one should go bankrupt because of one medical emergency.

I'd imagine their goal will now be to make ACA less 'user friendly', so that they can then 'save' us all from it by instituting a healthcare plan that's less humane, less inclusive...but it will be 'better' than the ACA, right? Uh-huh.

I'm healthy, knock wood, but I think of those whom I know with pre-existing conditions who did not have health insurance until the ACA came 'round. Should we really revert to the 'bad old days' of letting people who are ill and suffering be uninsured? -not very Christian, I say.

Ron said...

Exactly David. Both parties should work together but I doubt that will every happen as long as Trump keeps referring to the Affordable Care Act as a "disaster". The Republicans (Trump and Price) are all about sabotaging the Affordable Care Act now. They do not care for the average American, only cutting taxes for the very rich.

Ron said...

The answer is a single payer system like Medicare. But the heartless Republicans will never agree to that because they do not care for the average American. Only cutting taxes for the very rich.

Ron said...

For sure Trump and is sycophants (Tom Price, secretary of Health) will do everything they can to sabotage the ACA. The irony is that the Republicans are the party of the "good Christians (evangelicals) don't seem to practice the Christian principles that Jesus Christ proclaimed.

It's Obama's fault - or the democrats i forget which. I am certain by April even the entires GOP will be held blameless for their blunder.
