Trump open to tweaking Republican health care bill

Posted March 14, 2017

It would also necessitate Trump's sons to get out of the politics game.

"Last year alone, premiums spiked by 25 percent and millions of Americans have lost their health insurance plans and lost their doctors", Pence said, touting the Republican reform plan, unveiled just this past Monday, as the solution. Trump renewed many of his campaign promises, such as eradicating Islamic State group and bringing America's infrastructure to the 21st century.

In the last part of his speech, Trump promised to send "Congress a budget that rebuilds the military, eliminates the defense sequester and calls for one of the largest increases in defense spending in American history".

Trump won the Republican primaries and then the presidency because a significant portion of the American electorate is angry about the status quo over which both parties have presided in recent years.

Congressional Republicans had been calling for the same since Obama rammed through the original package on Christmas Eve, 2009, utilizing plenty of back room deals (remember the "Cornhusker Kickback"?) but without a single Republican vote.

But conservative lawmakers continued to criticize their own party's bill Sunday, led by Sen. The real estate mogul sounded like an (unlikely) champion of the long-suffering working class, which suggested that he might actually call the rhetorical bluff of party elites and govern like the populist he claimed to be during the campaign.

For President Trump, it's important that we give credit where credit is due and point fingers in shame when that shame is deserved.

But some Republicans oppose the replacement plan, which is where the whips come in. They are still blaming him.

"This would be the first time the government has executed cuts of this magnitude - and all at once - since the drawdown following World War II", the story said. This is due to Obamacare being implemented. Talks between German officials and the Trump administration suggest that there will be close cooperation between the two countries on policy toward Russian Federation, a senior German government official says.

The bill's supporters tell you they believe in choice, but they neglect to say that the choice can be between health care and, you know, food. Barack Obama visited Canada on February 19, 2009; George W. Bush traveled to Mexico on February 16, 2001; Bill Clinton went to Canada April 3-4, 1993; George H.W. Bush journeyed to Mexico February 10, 1989; and Reagan stopped in Canada March 10-11, 1981, just days before he was shot and survived an assassination attempt.

By many accounts, the House of Representatives' proposed replacement for Obamacare - the American Health Care Act - needs work. That means he will own it - and if it passes and inflicts enormous pain on these already angry voters? They know that now it could become law. That's what Trump is doing by supporting this sadistic bill.

So the Republicans will put forth a new national healthcare plan. If we're lucky, he'll be a Bernie Sanders-style democratic socialist. He added, "It is a disaster and 2017 will be the worst year yet, by far!"

As Trump explains it, Obamacare is already so bad, so flawed, that if left alone, it will eventually destroy itself. Pray we don't encounter them.
