    I want another Acosta meltdown today.

    Hope that the search for a new Press Sec is going well. Not sure Ingraham (mentioned) is the right choice.

    Folks the Democrats are dead! The repeal and replace will come up today at the press conference because the reality is slapping them all in the face that Barry’s final piece is about to go up in smoke. Mitch has the votes! he can’t take his wife beating him up every single night to get the legislation passed so that he can move onto Tax Reform which will lead to her utopia: $1 trillion dollar Infrastructure Plan.

    I truly believe the secrecy we are seeing is because the bill is going to blow the Democrat talking points out of the water! Senator Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are both part of the 13 Senator team working on the bill. Ted has said that we need to put everything under the sun into this bill. That includes selling across state lines, grouping, medical malpractice reform, help savings accounts etc. He feels that it would be allowed under reconciliation. I am beginning to think we will see that language which will drop costs tremendously across the board.

    From the article linked above:

    A member of the Senate Republican healthcare working group is working to build support for an alternative to the House-passed Obamacare repeal bill, one that allows for cross-state insurance purchases, and includes medical malpractice reform, health savings accounts and the expansion of association health plans.

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, also wants to pass just one bill to get the job done, not two, as currently planned by House Republican leaders.

    From the article linked above:

    With a vote slated for next week and no draft health-care bill in sight, Democratic senators decided to take matters into their own hands. On Tuesday, Sens. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) took a cab over to the Congressional Budget Office in the hopes that maybe the office would let them see the “secret” GOP-backed health-care bill, Murphy tweeted.

      I think they won’t let the Dems see it because as soon as they did, we would start getting all sorts of leaks, real or fake news, about what was in it. They would just make it impossible for the Reps to come up with anything that would work. I think the Dems are getting pressure from their constituents that want something done, so they have to look like they want to help and are being thwarted.

      Folks nothing happens by chance! There was a reason that one of the two Skype questions came from Kentucky. The topic was about coal versus tech jobs. However, the reporter asked about the relationship between the current Governor, Bevin and our President. That was done on purpose. There is GREAT admiration between the two of them. Poor Mitch is dying a slow death! Don’t dare have Bevin run against Mitch in the same year our President is up for reelection. Mitch will be primaried! I have NO DOUBT in the world it would happen!

        I enjoy the Skype interventions for two reasons. First, it brings attention to concerns and topics outside the framework of the Beltway Bubbleheads, who tend to ask the same questions week after week, hour after hour, then write exactly the same op/eds (no more reporting of who, what, where, when, how and why IF they have an expert to interview) even if the info has changed. Second, it gives the press secretary, be it Sean or Sarah, an opportunity to frame an immediate topic that the Swamp Cabal would not address if it didn’t fit their politics; i.e. the coal industry.

        The LSM has become soooooo lazy as the outlets become tighter monopolies with key people related by blood and marriage. It’s nice to have representatives from other locations and smaller markets.

      As a defense attorney, I cannot tell you how desperately we need tort reform. It will never be done by the “state” I live in. NM is a welfare state. We have the highest rate of medical malpractice suits in the country. We cannot keep doctors here because we are a threat to their existence. This is one of the most important pieces of legislation for the GOP. If they do not get it done, the only vote I will ever cast again will be for President Trump.

        catmom,

        And that is the problem I see with “fixing” Obamacare. Nothing is being brought forward as to how we are going to pass on savings. When Obamacare was rolled out we were promised savings but nobody could tell us how that was going to be accomplished. This “state lines” stuff is bullcrap.

        I remember watching some news program back when they were pushing O care and they had someone from government on to tell us about it. She said that savings would come down the road when doctors were able to share information!

        I see the same thing happening again, promises of cost savings but nobody can say exactly how that is going to happen. We are just going to end up with O care under a different name.

          I am hoping that many *ambulance chasers* have moved to other states, but I have no information on that.

      I like Sean Spicer also, but I agree his speech leaves a lot to be desired. He seems to never finish a sentence and he relies too much on preformed answers such as “I’m not going to get ahead of that”. Otherwise, he holds his own against the inquisitors.

      This will be the Dem’s message and talking point for the next three months, I’m guessing. And it’s easy to smack down, just like Spicy did today. The voters of both Blue and Red states expect their representatives to get in there and work hard at doing something. No one outside of Hollywood (idiots, pretty much) or the lefty-liberal camp like Schumer truly ever thought Obamacare worked. It was a mess from the get-go.

      The Dems can most certainly involve themselves in the process – simply show up at one of the meetings, tell Schumer they want in, or call one of their Republican colleagues working on the bill. NO EXCUSES!

    Personally, I think Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is of course Deputy Press Secretary, would be the better choice to replace Sean. Sean might actually like his new position better. At least he would still continue to work within the administration.

    • I can never understand party line on Sarah. She is a fine young woman with a good head and a good command of herself but she is the little league compared to Sean. With Sean I often grasp a bit of what the inside strategy is. He clearly knows the direction and the game plan and releases only as much as in the interest of his team. He is so far ahead of the press he plays with them & reels them in. Spicer maybe too valuable a player to waste his time trying to get the press to start doing their job as unbiased reporters and analysts but I will miss the sense of being let into the world of Trump’s cabinet if he is no longer a regular on the presser circuit.

      Sarah is only acting as a spokesperson, she adds no insight and is frequently defensive and in retreat. She does not even begin to warm the room. Where Sean gently pokes fun at the offenders and makes the reporters slightly ashamed of their churlishness Sarah makes it a p***ing contest. I gain nothing about the currents or the strategy from her pressers.

    Excellent, excellent job by Spicer today. You could tell that the press was chastened by their smackdown yesterday and they were much less bold today.

    Only two questions on Muh Russia. One was a throwaway “Does Trump believe Russia interfered in the election?”, which no one cares about and does not matter.

    The second question was about the Comey tapes. Spicer handled it well.

    In total, the press is backing off, Muh Russia is fading, and Team Trump is on message. No questions from Acosta and the press is finally put in its place.

    Good work.

        Trey Yingst’s “Russian interference” question sounded ridiculous, like an ill-timed punchline to a joke or something. Gong Show caliber, it made him look even more foolish and irrelevant than the press usually looks. Painfully obvious, as you said, Stringy, “that there’s no there, there”.

    I am very disappointed in Try Yingst from OANN. He used to ask good questions that were not being asked…. now he is in bed with the dolts from CNN (who just praised him) and asking stupid questions like “does the President believe the Russians interfered in the election”.

    I think he wants a job at CNN.
