    Does anyone here have a copy of the bill? Just curious why so many are so gun ho for this bill and have no idea whats in it. Yeah I trust Trump but not sure thats enough to blindly support this bill when I have no idea what is or isn’t in it. I still don’t see why the GOP thinks the Govt has any business in my health care. Just repeal the stupid thing and let the chips fall where they may. If it passes it passes but I can’t support something unless I know whats in it and at this point nobody probably does

      I think many are gung ho because they are willing to follow Trump no matter what. Blindly following ANYONE is a mistake. In fact, it’s foolish. No man is God and while some are honorable people, every human fails at some point. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to know what’s in the bill and having a detailed and lengthy discussion as to why it should be supported. I do realize that Trump may be doing something he can’t speak about right now because he needs the secrecy to get to a place where he can use whatever weapon he has in mind. But that does put everyone in a bad place to have to blindly support it. I think you said it well.

        Donald Trump won the presidency – the rest of these “conservatives” are absolutely worthless at best. They lead to no where. If President Trump says this is the way to go, we had better get on board. No man is God but too many cooks spoil the broth, especially conservative ones for some reason. Trust Trump, he is the only chance, like it or not.

    • If the House sends our dream bill to the senate it will require 60 votes, and cannot pass. So, it must be done under the senate “Reconciliation” rule, which only requires 51 votes. It’s either this process or nothing.

          This is a very bad bill for numerous reasons. If Sundance wants to give me a guest spot to write the reasons why I would be happy to do so (would be far too long a post for comments section). I also don’t think DJT has read the entire bill and had certain components full explained by someone with the proper knowledge. I am disappointed 😦

      The political reality that Trump is working in is that the majority of Americans believe that governments can do things to make health care better. Any party that wants to retain its fine principles at the expense of getting elected, better get used to living powerless in the political wilderness.

          I did not say I don’t support the bill, I asked why I should support the bill. Big difference don’t you think?

          My main problem with this bill is that Ryan and his cronies wrote it after having 7 years to come up with something better.

          I do not trust Ryan and am hoping Trump allowed Ryan to hang himself.

          Now, Please tell me again why I should support it.

            You have to get it (whatever that is) to House/Senate conference; the ultimate product of which will only require a 51 vote margin (or 50+1). Whatever changes can be made must be done in this fashion. If you nuke the ACA and try to go with a new bill, that will require 60 votes in the Senate (assuming it passes the House) and I have yet to hear anyone tell me where those at least 8 Dhimms are coming from . Anyway, my two cents.

              I could support the bill if in it’s failures it brings down Ryano the Rat.

              I could support the bill if it is helping Trump consolidate his power.

              Just don’t tell me it is a beautiful thing and expect me to support it. A case other than I will “love” it and it is a “beautiful” thing does not convince many to support the bill. That is what I am trying to point out.

              Messaging is important people. Not everyone just trusts Trump implicitly.

                The reasons you give are about the “health care.” They are about the people around the bill. I guess what I am saying is at this point we don’t know what the final bill will contain. It has to get to the Senate. The the Senate will do whatever they are going to do. If it passes there then it will go to both chambers for reconciliation. When the bill comes out of reconciliation we will know whether we want out reps to pass it or not.

    No need to worry about the Obamacare disaster. Ryancare was based on getting the Dems to support it. With no Dems, the votes must come from Freedom Caucus. Let President Trump work his magic. At the end of the day, no deal is better than a bad deal: the disaster known as Obamacare is the Democrat legacy. People will get care under Medicaid either way, the real problem is that doctors are leaving and retiring and the ones we’re getting are on visas. Establish 8 year scholarships in exchange for 8 years of service to hospitals and charities and watch our health system come roaring back! MAGA!

    Ryan is the big loser. The bill will eventually get changed to satisfy the holdouts.
    The deal is in motion. There can only be one winner, POTUS and he will win.

    Pyrrhic victory for FC. They have to come up with the ingredients to make the bill a winner.
    It’s put up or shut up.
    Not doing something doesn’t get them off the hook with their voters. Voters are suffering from Obamacare. The holdouts have to produce.

    Trump just waits for their inside the House battles to be over.

    Meanwhile, Ryan is the one who is calling Timeout.

    Donald should lecture Congress that in the Real Corporate World there are deadlines and Congress had 7-years to work on the New Health Care Bill. In the Corporate World, Congress would have been fired 10 times. Donald should disclose to Congress today…If the Health Care Bill is not done by Next Monday… I will not sign any bill until 2018 and tell Congress they can answer to voters.
    HIRE BIG 3 ACCOUNTING FIRMS
    Donald should Hire one of the Big 3 Accounting Firms and their Consulting department will write the Health Care Bill. The Consulting firm will be on the incentive plan paid each future year that the Health Care Bill is successful in reducing cost etc. Guarantee 100% Success…

  20. Trump’s Gameplan for Congress:

    Trump is reshaping the GOP to follow his lead, constructively collaborate and constantly contribute to enact the Trump Agenda.

    This is not a one-act performance.
    • He has to first make them dependent on him.
    • He has to bring them along to win one.
    • He has to earn their trust that he can and will deliver with and for them.

    He’s now got the Freedom Caucus swinging onto the Trump Team.
    • He’s taken command of unwinding and ending the Health Care nightmare.
    • He’s opened a seat at the table for them to contribute.
    • He’s proving that he’ll produce the funding and success needed to keep their seats – WITHOUT Globalist Pay-to-Play.

    He is beginning to co-opt the GOPe wing of the Uniparty.
    • They must come to fear the alternative to teamwork.
    • They must commit to compromise or lose.
    • They must join the Trump Team to win some or lose a lot.

    As for the Democrat wing of the Uniparty, they will soon have a reason to help some or convince their voters that it’s great to be losers.

    Everything you just said there is correct but that one quote I pulled out is what I think is really important. Some of these stooges are too busy going on TV opposing this thing and they don’t have a solution of their own that can get enough votes in both chambers to pass. They know it and they don’t care.

          The Freedom Caucus is the same group that said they would not vote for Paul Ryan only to turn around and vote for Paul Ryan. Then, when asked about it, they said it had to be done. They have done this before where they say they aren’t voting for something and then turn around and vote for it. Now, they decide to go against our President, one of their own, and they are refusing to compromise in any way. Yet, they were willing to do just that in the past.
