President Trump Holds Roundtable Discussion On Healthcare Proposal…

Earlier today President Trump and Vice President Pence held a meeting with key congressional committee leaders to discuss the ongoing healthcare reform.

[Transcript] 11:50 A.M. EST – THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, everybody.  I want to thank each of the House committee leaders for being with us today.  Your devotion and leadership has been amazing, and I want to just applaud you and the diligent work of your committees to advance the Obamacare repeal-and-replacement legislation that we’ve been talking about for a long time, and that we’ve been running with and I ran with, and I can tell you.  And that’s what people want, they want repeal-and-replace.  The bill passed just now through Ways and Means, and it will — I think the committee just voted recently, right?

REPRESENTATIVE WALDEN:  Yep.

THE PRESIDENT:  Your other committee —

REPRESENTATIVE WALDEN:  Energy.

THE PRESIDENT:  Energy and Commerce.  And it was a very good vote, and congratulations.  That was a good job.  Amazing.

We must act now to save Americans from the imploding Obamacare disaster.  Premiums have skyrocketed by double-digits and triple-digits in some cases.  As an example, Arizona — which I talk about all the time — 116 percent increase and it’s going up a lot higher.  ’17 would be a disaster for Obamacare.  That’s the year it was meant to explode, because Obama won’t be here.  That was when it was supposed to be — it will get even worse.  As bad as it is now, it’ll get even worse.

Choices are disappearing as one insurer drops out after another.  Today, one-third of all counties now have only one insurer on the Obamacare exchanges, and the exchanges themselves are a disaster.  The House repeal-and-replace plan ends the Obamacare tax hikes, cutting taxes by hundreds of billions of dollars.  It eliminates the Obamacare mandate that forces Americans to buy government-approved plans.  We all know that one.

It provides states with flexibility over how Medicaid dollars are spent, giving power from Washington and back to local government, which we all want to see.  We’re going to do a much better job.  And the plan empowers individual Americans to buy the health insurance that is right for them, not the plan forced on them by government.  You all remember, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan.  I know, Greg, you’ve never heard that, right?  But it was said many, many times, and it turned out to be not true.

This is the time we’re going to get it done.  We’re working together, we have some great results, we have tremendous spirit, and I think it’s something that is just going to happen very shortly.

So thank you all very much, and we’re going to get to work.

    This part of Ryan’s plan has to change immediately:
    The bill’s provisions increase healthcare costs for Trump voters in critical states. As an analysis conducted by the Washington Post shows, voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin will see their tax credits decrease under Obamacare 2.0. “If you’re a 40-year-old making $75,000 a year, you’re going to get a 75 percent or higher increase to your tax credits—a beneficial situation for you,” the Post explains. “If, however, you’re a 60-year-old making $30,000 a year, you’re going to see a reduction in those tax credits (unless you live in Upstate New York or Massachusetts or parts of central Texas).”

    In other words, senior citizens—who vote regularly in mid-term elections—will see their healthcare costs increase under the Republicans’ bill.

    Plus, Obamacare 2.0 phases out credits for people who start earning more than $75,000. Why? Because screw the voters and they’re on their own? What a great message to send to the middle class! Not only are Republicans hurting people struggling to make ends meet, they also punish you if you make too much money. Everyone loses, except perhaps insurance companies.

    At this point in his administration Obama had already gotten the stimulus bill passed and was about to turn to healthcare.

    If President cannot get this the AHCA done he will be significantly weakened.

    There will be plenty of opposition from the Democrats, the MSM, the medical lobby and the insurance lobby without taking fire from the Right.

    There is a lot not to like about this bill but after having vented over the past few days I’ve concluded we have to suck it up and support the President.

    More than that — we have to make it clear that the Freedom Caucus guys will pay a big price if they sabotage it.

        Exactly. It would be more productive to compare this piece of legislation with something that actually worked. As far as healthcare goes, we can’t just let everything collapse by doing nothing. That’s not the answer for the millions of Americans that would be affected but you are correct that we have to get it right. There is no such thing as a take two on something major like this. You basically get one stab at it and so with that opportunity, it has to be right the first time.

      Pinkie, you will recall that during the Obama “stimulus” (what a misnomer) vote there were Republicans who voted with the Democrat majority to pass it. And the Pubs had their own stimulus champion in GWB in 2008.

      The likelihood that even one Democrat will vote with the Republican majority (smaller than the Dem majority in 2009) on repeal/replace health care is next to zero. Dems stick together. Pubs do not.

      For all the reasons Sundance has outlined for several days, yes, we will “have to suck it up and support the President.” As long as the bill doesn’t force citizens to purchase insurance with items they will never use as Obamacare did, this new health care act will prove to be as good a deal as possible under the circumstances. Single-payer it isn’t and will not become.

      It is not a “win” if the Repubs pass bad legislation to “repair” Obamacare, and I think it will harm perspectives on Trump’s presidency. His presidency and legacy are going to be measured by 3 things… jobs, getting government out of healthcare (Ryancare does not in its current state result in positive improvements in healthcare in the US, and dealing with illegal immigration (he needs to stop telegraphing he is open to backtracking on the dreamers – and if he is open to it, he is shooting himself in the foot). If he doesn’t get control and keep these campaign promises, there won’t be a second term, support for the Repubs that he has driven will flee, and even fewer will follow the law – since apparently we’ll be able to select which laws we follow. And it’ll get really easy to impeach him, which is the goal of the Dems and GOPe.

    We are dealing with Washington, with egos galore. Might Trump’s plan actually have been for Ryan’s plan to be the starting point and then all the changes done in the process will make it better and get people like R. Paul and other people like who he’s meeting with on board?

      If I understood Ryan’s presentation (and similar points made by Sundance?) correctly, the real stumbling block is not in REPEALING Obamacare (a majority reconciliation vote can be used to accomplish this) but in REPLACING it with a plan that includes better provisions and options…e.g. being able to buy insurance across state lines…which then requires the 60 senate votes that the Republicans simply don’t have (they’ve only got 52, meaning 8 Dems would also need to vote in favor of it, which ain’t gonna happen). In other words, we’d be able to repeal Obamacare but not get anything passed to replace it. But I think the Republicans feel we need to push it all through the process, and let the Democrats eventually prove to be the obstructionists and take the fallout from it. We could do nothing and simply let Obamacare implode in on itself, but as Trump said, that means many innocent working class Americans (not to include our elected officials, of course) would end up getting hurt by it. Which the Democrats (who created this fiasco in the first place) could give a rat’s ass about and who would undoubtedly, in typical slimy Democratic fashion, be quick to point the blame at Trump & Co., the very ones trying to fix the problem.

    Did anyone on here see Trump’s weekly address today? He said the healthcare bill “is a process” set up where our HHS Price will “develop” a bill during step 2 after Ryan’s bill in step 1 gets passed.Price and Trump will have items in the number 2 step that includes crossing over state lines, competition, deregulation and other items to bring costs down and quality of care up! Price takes over from Ryan. The result of that will have what Trump campaigned in the primaries regarding healthcare! Step three is getting the Price/Trump bill passed as law! That would require 8 democrats to vote for it if all 52 GOP Senators vote yes. If Dems turn it down….America can point to the Dems once again for failing us! Apparently Trump plans to campaign heavily in states where Dem Senators are vulnerable on the healthcare bill. Ryan’s plan IS NOT going to be law!!!!

    I prefer we push all 3 phases into one bill and try to get it passed. Yes it will inevitably fail as Democrats won’t budge in the Senate. But then we get a win on optics- the benefit of showing Americans we tried to bring relief but the Democrats refused to help out. ObamaCafe will then collapse under its own wait. Then we start fresh and can then ram the replacement through after the midterms.

Health care needs to have upper cervical spesific Chiropractic. That type does not crack the back or neck not manipulating the spine. Imbalances in the spine causes hips and knees to wear out. The top bone in the spine must be positioned properly beneath the Foramen Magnum. The sooner this is done the better. Upcspine, Upper cervical health centers. or The Spesific Chiropractic.

    Let’s be clear about one thing: the American Health Care Act is NOT a repeal of Obamacare. To say it repeals Obamacare is like saying they’re getting rid of a cheeseburger and replacing it with a hamburger that has cheese on it. Some of the toppings are different. They’re pushing mustard instead of mayo. They dropped the pickles altogether. Nevertheless, it’s still a cheeseburger.

    They are cowards. They don’t really want to repeal Obamacare because they aren’t willing to take the heat that will come with it. The only reason they fought so hard before was because they knew that President Obama would veto their attempts. They could claim to be fighting the good fight knowing they had no chance of succeeding. Now, they have a chance to accomplish what they promised and they’re running away.

      Citizen 817,
      I agree with you except for one thing — calling the GOPe ‘cowards’. They’re worse — they’re traitors. But we should not be surprised at any of this. As I said in an earlier post– it’s ALWAYS –ALWAYS– about the money.
      And if you don’t remember anything else, remember this– every GOPe member voted to keep Ryan Speaker– EVERY GOPe, except for one –Thomas Massie. Every Republican POS needs to be flushed down the DC toilet, and replaced. Like my old bumper sticker from 2009 says: “Clean House and Senate too in 2010!” Only this time 2018!

    Lou Dobbs needs to take a vacation from his show, during which time he should read Sundance’s explanation of this health insurance 3-step process of repeal/replace 0care. Fortunately, the wonderful Steve Forbes was on tonight, reassuring Dobbs that President Trump will get this whole thing done. He also reassured Dobbs that Mitch McConnell will NOT stand in the way of PTrump’s tax reform. I have 100 per cent faith in President Donald J Trump to get this entire job done. Relax, y’all.

    Everytime I read about the infighting it just seems crazy to me why this wasn’t handled years ago. They had 7 years to get on the same page. Why are they being voted in if they can’t do their jobs? A bill should’ve been ready for any scenario, day 1 as a contingency. If they screw up here, forget it bring the Democrats in. At least we’d have an efficient decline rather than this nonsense.
