Paul Ryan Has a Legislative Lyin’ Problem – ObamaCare Edition…

Today, as CPAC begins, there is an auspicious breaking of ‘I-told-ya-so’ sunlight…

On February 17th (five days ago) we posted a research and discussion outline surrounding an interview between Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Fox News Sean Hannity.   Within the outline I emphatically stated:

Paul RyanFirstly, no-one who has deep understanding of political constructs trusts Paul Ryan.  PERIOD.  This interview doesn’t change that valid and central truism one iota.  There are Trillions of dollars at stake.

Paul Ryan is setting up the groundwork in his preparation to orchestrate the financial legislative priorities of Tom Donohue, Wall Street and the U.S. CoC.   It’s a con. If you don’t grasp that basic foundation, you’ll be entirely lost for the remainder of the year. -link-

I went on to outline how Sean Hannity was accepting a construct of legislative lies from House Speaker Paul Ryan.

How do I state emphatically Ryan is lying?

Quite simply because I’ve followed his parseltongue for so many years, on budgets and immigration specifically, that I can identify exact moments when there is no doubt Ryan  is constructing a “Con”, or a “Scheme”.

Well, lookie here:  Today, Jeffrey Lord discovers Lyin’ Ryan has a problem:

[…]  Ryan specifically said the Congressional Budget Office was scoring a specific [repeal ObamaCare] plan. Yet there on the Wednesday Hannity radio show were members of the House Freedom Caucus saying they had seen no such bill.

Huh? Hannity was gobsmacked.

So stunned that he suggested he would come back to D.C. and do a joint televised interview with Ryan and the House Freedom caucus members to find out what in the world is going on.

To put it gently? Speaker Ryan, you have a problem. -link-

Perhaps, just perhaps, a few more people will now begin to stop thinking of Paul Ryan as the constitutional savior of all things Republican – and begin to see him for what he is, the GOPe gatekeeper of the Swamp and the legislative mouthpiece for U.S. CoC lobbyists, Tom Donohue and the DC UniParty BIG CLUB:

the-big-club-2

It’s not just the Jeffrey Lord’s of the world who extend favorable opinion where no favorable opinion should be extended; there’s an entire network of those who call themselves “conservative”, or even “republican”, who won’t accept or admit the scheming lies that are sold by political republicans to their constituents.

Maybe, just maybe, this example will awaken a few more people.

…. However, given the illustrative example of a standing ovation from CPAC, I won’t hold my breath.

    Hannity is nothing if not a good parrot. A parrot is a pretty bird that repeats the same meme his whole life but, unfortunately, has no idea of its own.

      What I don’t understand is why you are dissing Hannity! Hannity has upwards of 50 million fans and let his platform out to Paul Ryan to make his case. We should all be thankful for Hannity’s platform which he earned. Your angst ought to be redirected at Paul Ryan and not Sean Hannity. The end!!!

        Mr. Ryan, I don’t trust you and with good reason. Over a year ago you brought forth a plan that would undo most of Obamacare, “The House on Wednesday passed legislation that would repeal much of ObamaCare and defund Planned Parenthood for one year, sending the measure to President Obama’s desk.” The Hill, By Peter Sullivan – 01/06/16 05:48 PM EST
        Over the last six years there have been many other proposals to undo Obamacare. Now you say it will take 200 days to figure something out? You have a multitude of proposals sitting in your desk already! I think you brought repeal forward when Obama was President because you knew he would veto it. Now, that you have President Trump, you won’t bring it forward because you know he would sign it. You are dishonest on this subject.

        I don’t think Hannity has ever had an original thought. He does repeat what everyone else is saying but says it with authority so it sounds as if he claims it as his own. My larger issue with Fox News is why they give GOPe RINOs like Ryan, McLame, Graham, McConnell, et al., air time at all. They should take page out of Trump’s book and sideline them all. Ignore them.

        We already know what they stand for and giving them air time only makes them stronger and bolder in their own minds. They are traitors to the country and serve interests that are not the majority of Americans best interests. That is why we MUST have term limits. The fact that there is no progress on repeal and replace ACA while Republicans own both houses of Congress is a complete and utter disgrace.

He’s repetitive, like a parrot. I tried to watch his interview with Lyin’ Ryan, and finally had to turn it off. He just sat there and lapped up everything Ryan was spewing. Didn’t bother to challenge him on a few questionable talking points. Hannity’ s all about kissing a$$ more so than ever. Compare Hannity to Lou Dobbs. Right, there is no comparison. Dobbs is my favorite.

    What we clearly have on display is the Republican variant of the entrenched D.C. elitists’ pattern of playing the perpetual loser falling apart around them. The ACA was already written and ready to go before Obama was ever even voted on. It was passed within weeks of his inauguration. The Congressional republicans have been claiming that they want to repeal it ever since. They said they had the power and plan to do exactly that during Mitt Romney’s sham of a campaign. House Republicans voted through “repeal bills” six times when Obama was president and they knew it would never go anywhere. So what happened to all of those? What have they been doing for the last six years?

    To answer my own question, nothing. They didn’t think they’d ever actually have to do any work. They just have to give lip service stopping those darned democrats to get elected and keep cashing those paychecks and showing their face at all the right lavish parties. Life was easy under Obama. It was even easier when they were a minority in Congress. That’s why they feel no hesitancy about back-stabbing their fellow Republicans. That’s why they’ve consistently shown no interest in winning. And that’s why, now that they have a majority in both houses, the presidency, and even the Supreme Court if they really wanted, they’re more vocal than ever before about opposing the white house even though their supposed to be on the same side.

    Now they find themselves in a dilemma. The people that keep voting to send them to oppose the Democrats are expecting something in exchange for their years of loyal voting, but the people at those fancy parties are expecting something else for their years of loyal campaign donations. How do they continue to pretend they’re opposing the leftist agenda while still delivering to their paymasters without the cover of an opposing political party?

    Enter the complex sociopolitical dilemma. The problem is too nuanced for us to understand. It’s totally the Democrats’ fault still, but we’re going to have to think long and hard about how to unravel this Gordian’s knot because we can’t just abandon all these poor, poor people that have somehow come to depend on these subsidies and regulations after only a few years of them existing. It’s too late to just go back to what was working just fine seven years ago, and we don’t want people to think we’re mean to those with pre-existing conditions, do we?

    The movement to elect President Trump was just the beginning. We need to grow. We need to rally more troops in more states. We need to continue marching into enemy territory no matter what color they paint their state. We need to swarm the primaries, Republican AND Democrat. The Entrenched congressional politicians that are used to uncontested elections term after term have to go. They’re still convinced that we are a fluke, that we’ll lose interest, that they can just drag their feet and play defense for four years and we’ll go away. We will fail if we do not prove them wrong in 2018 and we need to start the ball rolling now.

    Our President is doing all he can to deliver wins for us. We have to deliver wins for him.

    Here is my issue with the Obamacare and the whole “repeal and replace” line we are being led around on…see if you agree with me.

    What did we have prior to 2010 regarding healthcare? We ALL had either our own individual plans, employer plans, some form of Medicaid insurance OR we choose NOT to have/pay for health insurance (re: single twenty-something that would rather have the extra $180 in his paycheck). There have ALWAYS been a few million that either choose to not have insurance or could get it through Medicaid or an employer if they desired.

    We have bought into the idea that the Gov’t SHOULD be involved with healthcare now and people are clamoring for a replacement if or when it gets repealed. I am of the opinion of “repeal and nothing”. Let the MARKET determine rates and coverage as it should be NOT the gov’t. The gov’t can continue to cover those that they always have covered. The Market also will now include in their plans the “up to 26yo” plan and the “pre-existing” plans, “across state line coverage”, etc as they have seen the popularity of these ideas. They will not want to be the only insurer that does not cover these because guess where people will not buy their insurance?

    We need to return to market based ideas. We need to seriously PUSH this idea to our Congress people so they know we want plans to return to PRE-Obamacare and not a replacement. The market on its own can figure that out we do not need the gov’t.

They were morally indebted to never turn away anybody – i.e. “free healthcare” for those who don’t want to pay. They had to cover their costs to treat the freeloaders. If “Repeal and Nothing” is to be viable for lower costs, some sort of guidelines will have to be made to what is truly considered an “emergency” that is worthy of the benevolence of the facility. Otherwise pricing will not decrease.

        This is a key point. There needs to be a requirement that any entity performing treatments have posted costs for treatments that are not to be exceeded, with severe penalties for failing to comply. They may apply a ‘discount’, but cannot exceed the posted amount.

        If I take my car in to get it worked on, I have to sign off on the work. But when you go in for emergency treatment, they never let an emergency go to waste. As a result, financial servitude and bondage are placed on individuals.

        The medical field, which does hold some I would call honorable and good people, is riding on the coat tails of its reputation and status for care. The corporate model of this has abused that goodwill by ripping off people and taking the original intent and focusing on the profit aspect. Requiring posted costs would force their hand.

          Everyone thinks that seniors healthcare is “free”;
          you know the one whereby you paid 3% of your
          salary?

          My sister finally got on Medicare (well, forced
          is actually the case). She pays $104.00 per
          month for Medicare; $230.00 for supplemental
          insurance that pays the 20% co pay and $65.00
          for prescription insurance. Her prescription
          insurance won’t pay for one of her medications

      I have always thought it should be repealed and to stop there. The only exception to that would be to make law enabling insurers to sell across state and other lines. That’s it. Increase competition and make health insurance completely optional. Obamacare did nothing to insure the flood of illegals and refugees.

      Just put it back the way it was and open competition. Done and done.

    If you recall, this is the same crew who installed Ryan as Speaker in the first place!

    Something seems highly suspicious about a 200 day plan. Why should a repeal take that long?

    To me the repeal/replace plan should be as simple as this:

    Phase 1:
    Repeal Obamacare and fund plans until 2018. Continue the medicaid expansion for opt-in states through the end of 2018.
    Keep the healthcare marketplace/exchanges.
    Make everyone eligible for Health Savings Accounts (HSA) except for those on high-tier (“Cadillac”) health plans.
    Eliminate insurance boundaries on state lines.

    Phase 2:
    Require care providers to list costs.
    Require providers to provide an itemized cost breakdown as part of informed consent before care is provided (except for emergency care situations)
    Exempt heathcare cost information from HIPAA/PII rules to allow a care marketplace to be established and allow people to know how much procedures cost.

    I for one want to remember what it was we wanted from a President this time around, and I have to realize that we aren’t going to get every swamp creature out. Our President is going to have to work with some of the swamp creatures – art of the deal. We are going to have to realize what we have now good and bad, and we are America – a democracy, and as such we aren’t always going to all 100% vote for every person in office. I don’t like Ryan, but there are bigger fish in the sea to catch. HRC, Obama, Soro’s, Pelosi, etc. etc.

    There is something to be said for keeping to the main objectives and goals,

    Ryan is derailing – or at very least delaying – one of the main objectives/goals, and we can find ways to put that back on track by setting Ryan straight ….Sean Hannity will help. And, we can all help by ramping up our tweets/blogs/posts about Repealing/Replacing ACA now.

    What really pi $$es me off is the fact that the House has voted over 60 times to repeal otrauma care. 60 times, but they have no plan????? All they did was blown smoke up our you know whats!!!! Nothing more than SHOW votes…..it was all a ruse. We can’t seem to get them primaried and voted out of office, and there is no way they will ever vote for term limits on themselves.

    The one and only way to send a clear message is for the working people to go exempt for at least a month on federal income tax withholdings. We have to hit them where it hurts and money, our money, is the only way to do it. SSI and Medicare taxes are separate, so we could send a real clear message.

    I know this would be difficult to get people on board, but it is the only way I see to send a message to Congress. We put Donald J Trump into office and they still aren’t listening to us nor do they give a damn about us. The only use they have for us is our Federal tax dollars rolling in every week/month. They will only take notice if and when that money stops for a month or so!!!

    Speaker RINO and all of the rest would get a real quick reality check as to who their employers are. We pay the bills, we pay for their high browed standard of living, salaries, life time full salary retirement, health insurance and their high-falutin cocktail parties. I, for one, am sick and tired of this fiasco!!!!!!

    The “200 days” is standard SOP in Congress. They have to “debate” the finer points of the bill – translated – “We are debating how much pork everyone gets out of this one.” No pork, no vote, no bill. That’s how they roll.

    Here’s a typical example: When the F15 was first accepted as the new fighter for the Air Force, it did not go into production until the powers that be added 5 TONS of stuff and BILLIONS OF DOLLARS in additional cost to an otherwise perfectly engineered aircraft. Same exact thing with the F16.

  28. I just wrote my Congresscritter denouncing Ryan’s lies about Obamacare repeal. I have previously written him that I do NOT favor any “replacement” since the federal government is delegated no authority over healthcare in the Constitution, and this is purely a state issue, just as education, and other matters not explicitly enumerated in Article I, Section 8. That is why the Left outed itself as Constitutional ignorami when they criticized Romney for implementing Romneycare in Massachusetts, as though a state matter would or could ever become the template for nationalized healthcare! This conflating of what are appropriately state matters versus federal matters provide evidence that the Left neither understands nor has the capacity to understand exactly what federalism is. If California, or New York or Massachusetts want to set up state healthcare, that’s their prerogative. However, there is no such parallel authority for Congress to do so.

    Any time I’ve seen Ryan on TV since the election, the ONE takeaway: “We’re on the same page, we’re working together” blah, blah, blah….This is half huffin and puffin, runnin as hard as he can to get out in front of the parade…and half setting Trump up for a double-cross.
    He wants to be able to say “We had an agreement. Trump is running off the reservation again….” etc

    Ryan needs to get these questions every time he opens his yap:

    1. Why didn’t you guys EVER take a stand and create a BUDGET under Obama? What in the hell were you DOING the past 8 years?
    and
    2. You obviously DIDN’T think a budget was necessary for 8 years, why are you giving Trump trouble over the budget now?

    Just wait. The Uniparty is GOING TO USE THE BUDGET PROCESS TO DEFEAT TRUMP POLICY.
    WE have to set Ryan up first, educating people about what he’s been up to, so he doesn’t have STANDING to bitch about the budget.

    Boehner: Republicans won’t repeal and replace Obamacare

    Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.”

    Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.”

    Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest.

    “[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said.

    […] ” Hannity radio show were members of the House Freedom Caucus saying they had seen no such bill […] do a joint televised interview with Ryan and the House Freedom caucus members to find out what in the world is going on.”

    To me this is key, and it does not have to be done in a “joint interview”, because their will be much interruption and vague and ambiguous answers and I’m not sure that Freedom Caucus members would publically call Speaker Ryan out on his obfuscation.

    The avenue to take is to quit giving the mic to Ryan and start interviewing the ‘lesser members’ of the committee’s and start with the Ways and Means Committee members. Remember, the ACA (Obamacare) was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court.
    https://waysandmeans.house.gov/ ~ their opening page has Ryan and Brady’s “Better Way” plan. https://waysandmeans.house.gov/subcommittee/full-committee/ ~ this is the full members link and they, even the Democrats, need a mic stuck in their faces and pointed questions asked.

    Ways and Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) 8th District – was hand picked by Ryan and the CoC cronies and is much a DC swamp creature as any … the House Ways and Means Committee, considered by many to be the most powerful committee in Congress with jurisdiction over taxes, health care, Social Security, Medicare, international trade and welfare. Get that? This is where the smoke and mirrors begin. Prior to his election to Congress, Kevin worked as a chamber of commerce executive for 18 years.

    Agree 1000%. Ryan & McConnell are leading the way to preserve the status quo anyway they possibly can. They don’t seriously want to repeal Obamacare, because they are big government crony capitalists — they’d rather make a deal with the devil to retain their powerful seats than do what’s right for the American people. I despise the RINOS – all of them!!

    By the way, when Trump chose Priebus, I thought this is not looking good. Priebus is a longtime friend of Ryan’s – both from Wisconsin and joined at their RINO hips. Then Trump chose Elaine Chao who is Tooter Turtle McConnell’s wife as Transportation Secy – her and her husband will shepherd through a huge infrastructure scheme to scam taxpayers once again and solidify his power. Too many powerful RINOS have Trump’s ear and have installed like minds to crush the American people! Because all said and done, the GOP establishment loves power and control and hates individual liberty.

    On the day of that Trump had his press conference aka “Trump v The Media: The Reckoning”, I was watching Varney & Co on FBN while awaiting the President.

    Paul Ryan held a presser in the 11:30-12 p.m EST frame about the Border Tax and Obamacare (what they would be doing after the Presidents’ Day recess).

    Afterwards, guest Steve Forbes called out Ryan on several lies about the Border Tax, including that we don’t have a national sales tax so there is no tax to remove, and that The Constitution specifically precludes us from taxing exports so Ryan stating that a Border Tax was an equalization mechanism was absolute rubbish.

    Varney posted a tiny fragment of Forbes’ statement but if anyone can find that whole segment broken up over a commercial break, it would be a credible slam on Ryan and his lies.
