President Trump Meets With Intransigent House Freedom Caucus – The Congressional #NeverTrump Team…

Earlier today President Trump met with the House Freedom Caucus. The HFC is a group of professional electoral abusers who create battered conservative syndrome.   The HFC has never passed legislation, nor have they ever taken a leadership role in politics when given every opportunity to actually lead.

Personally, I have ZERO respect for the caucus itself or any joined member who would put group intransigence above common sense.  The HFC are political countermeasures.

The caucus is what’s known as the “controlled opposition“, and despite the talking points to the contrary they are funded by billionaire individual donor special interests. The heart of the Freedom Caucus political nucleus revolves around the Citizens United SCOTUS decision.   Without C.U. the House Freedom Caucus collapses.

The combination of the HFC and CU is what led to multiple 2016 presidential primary candidates.  The HFC are hidden corporatists. The HFC were united under the #NeverTrump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, and they worship at the altar of Mark Levin (gaslighting on their behalf), Glenn Beck and Ted Cruz.

The entire HFC schtick is a ruse, a fraud, a long-term scheme virtually identical to the prior explained “countermeasures strategy“.   Astute Machiavellian democrats also fund the HFC through PAC’s (Political Action Committees) built to hide the intents.  Some understand this system, but not near enough.

The HFC voted to support Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House; the HFC also voted to fund the 2015 Omnibus and debt ceiling removal.  HFC members are also placed on key committee positions by the UniParty to give an illusion of divergence.  HFC participates in CPAC seal-clapping.  Sound conservative?… they’re not.  It’s a mutually beneficial UniParty ruse; nothing more.   I digress…

[TRANSCRIPT] President Donald J. Trump held a productive meeting with more than 30 members of the House Freedom Caucus in the Cabinet Room today to discuss the building momentum toward repealing and replacing Obamacare. Members of the House Freedom Caucus thanked the President for engaging with them throughout the negotiations.

The President thanked the group for their willingness to work closely with the White House and their colleagues in Congress to craft the strongest possible bill. The group agreed that their ultimate goal is to implement a system that will drive down costs and increase access to healthcare for millions of Americans. This meeting was a positive step toward that goal.

The President will also be meeting with the Tuesday Group later this afternoon and looks forward to further discussing our efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare. (more)

    Paul Ryan is a fav of the Koch Brothers and promised Koch donor retreat attendees he would go against Trump on push for TPP. Koch brothers involved with many up there (never Trump though). I think Trump’s best quality is that he listens to all sides and negotiates for the best outcome after all considered. Ryan’s Bill had some flaws. I think the HFC and conservatives in Senate have been offering some good ideas on both policy and procedure. I’m hoping Trump can pull the best of both together and force a good bill out of this from them.

      I don’t have a dog in this fight. But let me just say this: Trump knows exactly what he is doing. Either way, Trump wins. If the bill passes, and there are democrats that might have to vote for it, Trump gets the credit. If it fails, Ryan and the Dems get the blame. Some of you might toss the Freedom Caucus in for a share of the blame. It doesn’t matter. It’s going to implode on its own. Obamacare provisions that require the IRS to enforce,just might not get enforced. Insurance companies could be allowed to sell across state lines by just not enforcing anything. (Kinda like Sanctuary cities, only different.)
      My guess is it is going to pass, because Trump. If not, it will be “The Wrath of Trump.” Lots of people will be looking for coattails in a couple years.

        Good points. You realize though that insurance companies don’t want the change to sell across state lines? They don’t want increased competition. They want to each have their various state monopolies. I suspect that is why Ryan made sure to exclude that from his bill.

          I’m not so sure that it is that they don’t want increased competition. I suspect that they do but worry about being the one stuck in a bad fiscal/actuarial situation. More customers helps all of them, provided income is greater than outgo, both now and in the future. Keep in mind what limited premium prices mean when that long tail, parts of which cannot be modeled well, blow up in their faces. Also recall that No-care was designed to make the ‘private’ insurers all fail, sooner or later. That’s what removing lifetime caps and guaranteed issue do, if you can’t match assets to liabilities.

    Don’t get distracted Treepers – the HFC is a mix of good (Jordan) and terrible (NeverTrumpers Sanford and Amash). Some members are conservative, but others are libertarian spergs who despise economic nationalism/fair trade and would probably support amnesty, since to many of them the economy is all that matters.

    The bill is a first step. I stand with the President and his deal making, which includes playing ball with Ryan as a means to work out future issues that he isn’t going to be pleased with.

I will be very interested to see who goes against President Trump. Those same members will continue to obstruct any thing President Trump plans to accomplish. Pray.

      Pelosi made a remark that this was amateur hour, that DEMs didn’t bring out a bill unless they knew they had the votes.

      I think Trump is not amateur hour. Half the GOP want to undercut Trump. RINOs want to skip Obamacare and go right to the pork, I mean tax bill. Right at the beginning Trump insisted obamacare first. Trump had the leverage to insist because he had made Obamacare the campaign issue after immigration.

      So Trump forced Ryan to come up with something. But Ryan didn’t want to come up with anything, so Ryan made a bill designed to make Trump look bad. But Trump called his bluff and insisted on a vote.

      I base my opinion of Ryan’s motive on the fact he removed even the little vetting of illegal aliens that was in Obamacare, and he transferred the penalty for not buying Obamacare from a tax penalty, to making Americans hand a 30% higher premium to the insurance company.

      Both of these changes will infuriate the Trump base. So now there is nothing to stop illegals, and a poor schmo who had to drop his health insurance because his car needed a new transmission, now has to pay the insurance company 30% more? Meanwhile welfare deadbeats on Medicaid pay zero. Try to sell this at a Townhall, even one not stuffed with paid protestors

Me thinks Trump is now in a win/win situation. The narrative is set and easy to spot. DC politics as usual is a wreck. A swamp. Trump gets credit if he can get a bill to the Senate, and he will not suffer the blame if it doesn’t.

    OMG. They have had 5 years already. Is that slow enough to get it right and figure out a real process to get it done within voting constraints. Reality does not exist for these people.

    Bottom Line Reality check:
    This is the ONE attempt to fix Obamacare in 2017. Then on to other issues in 2017. Then how many want to try to fix it in 2018 just before the next election cycle? Hand grenades everywhere. Not likely. Reality can be an ugly place for idealogues (right and left).

    If all the house GOP will go on record and vote for this bill tomorrow, then at least we will find out who are for and against it. I suspect that there are many GOP House Members who are doing this negotiating act for public display, but deep down they have been bought either to be for or against repealing Obama care, not to mention the Senators who remain on the sideline at the moment. If this bill would somehow make its way to the Senate, then the same game will be played over again, then the Senators will also need to be put on record.

    All these games are played by those politicians who have already bought by the rich donors and globalists, not to mention the Democrat politicians who are enjoying this fight tremendously. The end results are we, the ordinary citizens, will suffer the consequences regardless of which elite groups would spend the most money to win this fight.

    Our President is trying to do the right thing with all his skills and years of negotiation experience but he is dealing with a new bunch of evils that do not care less about country, citizens, constitution, laws, moral, conscience, religion or anything else of values that we would hold dearly to our heart.

    It is sad that we have arrived to this point but the politicians have decided that they will replaced the good almighty and they will decide our fate at the order of their precious donors. It is also sad that we were responsible for putting these politicians in power in the first place,. May God bless our President who shares our moral, values, patriotism, and love for all of us who are the forgotten peoples left behind by those greedy and selfish politicians who only exist to satisfy their never ending needs.

    I am with Trump on getting part 1 passed, however, I havn’t gotten a ton of clarity on Part 2/3. Do you think Trump will push for allowing insurers to operate outside of the aca (but not be eligible for aca tax credits) and be able to discriminate on pricing? The best way to lower costs is to put the monetary incentive for recurring medical care and let the insurers cover catastrophic events. If someone is obese and has loads of preexisting conditions, why should they get the same rate as a young marathon runner?

    The 1st stage [repeal] has to be voted on now, or wait until next year’s budget reconciliation. However, the Secretary of HHS’ 1,422 rulings do not require new legislation. Enforcement of any Obamacare rules and regulations can be gutted quite legally by Secretary Price. The mandate for IRS penalties for non-insureds who do not buy insurance and insureds who opt out has already been eviscerated by an PDJT EO.

    Those legislators who “do not believe” in Stage 2 or 3 are either willfully stupid, or willfully misleading low information voters.

    If the House Republicans do not vote for this 1st stage [repeal] then they are signing their own ejection order from Congress.

    Without repealing the federal mandate under Obamacare that insurers cover such basic services as prescription drugs, maternity care and substance abuse treatment, you aren’t repealing Obamacare. It’s really that simple. Why pretend? I think that members of the HFC would have voted for the same repeal bill passed in 2015 (?) if it were brought up again, but most of the other Rs would not, hence the reason that they did not simply vote out the same bill again. Because of HFC, we might actually come close to repealing the darn thing.

    The Rs (and Trump) will own whatever sausage is made, so saying “you own it” just because some here disagree on certain points is redundant.

    What is the problem with letting all of the “special interest” groups (or “factions”) fight this out??? This is exactly how Madison envisioned the system. If Trump is as good as some of you believe, then he should have no problem managing the “factions.”

  41. Anyone notice WHY President Trump might be meeting with the Truckers this afternoon?

    There are 8 MILLION TRUCKERS: 1 of every 16 workers.
    Truckers are a FORCE with VERY COMMON INTERESTS.
    Truckers are ACTION HEROES who COMMUNICATE all day and all night.

    I’m watching for some frantic Congress Critters tomorrow as the field multiple calls from 8 MILLION pissed off Truckers who now know Congress is planning to stick them with another year of ObamaCare while the critters skip town next week to play at recess!

    Morgan Griffith in Virginia’s Ninth is being looked at under a magnifying glass right about now. Can’t be invisible in the SUNLIGHT, right Sundance? We’ll see how he votes and will remember him come 2018.

    I’m guessing that Trump reminded them that they HAVE HAD EIGHT YEARS!!!! to get a replacement ready and THIS is what they trot out?!?!?!? You know, we had the dems locked into the worst debut in political history with the Obamacare website roll out. It has taken these guys about 2 1/2 months to make the O’care roll out look good. Wow!!

    Never has the difference between the way things are done in competitive free enterprise, where initiative, imagination, conscientiousness, and disciplined hard work over long periods of time are essential characteristics of successful people, and the supercilious, posturing dwarfs we see in professional politicians in both parties been so evident.

    This should be the only question people are asking their representatives: You have had 8 years and you aren’t ready? You told us you were serious about the repeals you sent to Obama. If that is true then pass the same bill you passed last year and send it to the president. But, if it’s not a serious bill, then you’ve been playing us for suckers, haven’t you?

    I’ve seen enough of these guys. Let’s find out who they are and hound them out of office.

  45. OK, whenever you hear a moniker attached to anything in the District of Corruption, you should turn it on its head. Freedom Caucus means Tyranny Caucus, ACA means unaffordible non-care act, there’s a multitude of examples.

    I didn’t even need to know any names of the HFC members to smell a RAT. #nevertrumpers make me sick to my stomach, like Mark as-far-from-the-Great-One-as-is-possible-in-the-known-universe Levin and Becky and lash et. al., too numerous to mention.

    If the HFC blocks the vote tomorrow, they will be hounded out of office in 2018. Our President Trump will not forgive and forget.

    Those fools just gave the dimms an out. The dimms can walk away from this free of blame. The freedom fools will now own Obamacare lock stock and barrel. They will try to deflect to Trump but it will not work. They were the intransigent ones.

    This is now Foolscare. It’s their baby now. And Trump will go to rallies and let Americans know firsthand what happened to their health insurance.

    This bill is on the white house .gov website. I do not see what it is going to do for the deductibles, copays and premiums. We will still be paying for services we do not need. same stupid bundle of Gold, platinum and whatever the other one was. You will get charged a 30% fine if you have to resign should your insurance lapse. I do not see what it is going to do to help us out. Maybe someone else can find some benefits,

  48. By walking away, Trump has essentially fired Paul Ryan. After having tested his leadership, Trump say what many of us also saw, Paul Ryan is an underhanded SOB with an agenda and fails to lead on a broad basis. Ciao, widow-peak boy.

    The Freedom Caucus are mostly Never Trumpers, motivated not by patriotism or what is best for Americans, but by their petty hatred of Trump.
