BREAKING: Trump Requests All 52 Republican Senators To White House Meeting at 4:00pm…

In an effort to break the intransigence of Republican Senators who refuse to vote approval for the senate healthcare reform/replace bill, President Trump met with Senator Rand Paul earlier this afternoon.  President Trump is trying to get the #NeverTrumper’s to support the 3 step approach.

The Senate version of the Freedom Caucus (Cruz, Lee, etc), and Senators from states who are now entirely addicted to federal medicaid spending, are not willing to support legislation that doesn’t: A.) give them a full repeal, and B.) give them even more Obamacare money, respectively.

Because of the intransigence of both oppositional sides within the Republican Senate, it now appears a vote is not going to take place this week.

That said, President Trump calling them to the White House to remind them if they don’t do it this week, the far-left-activist groups (those demanding single-payer) are going to swarm the Senators over the holiday break; and they will return to DC in no better shape than they are in today.

There is a reason why Harry Reid ‘sequestered’ the entire Senate for two weeks before Christmas 2009, never let them leave for holiday recess and forced a vote on Christmas Eve at 1:38 in the morning.  If they don’t get it done now, it’s dead.

President Trump appears to be putting the oneness of failure upon their individual shoulders and giving Mitch McConnell a little elbow room.

Failure rests on the heads of the intransigent GOP Senators.  This loggerhead reality is essentially encapsulating why Republicans always lose politically.  Their high-minded ‘principles’ never get anything accomplished unless their lobbyist lunch companions give them permission to vote.  It’s the same problem previously seen in the House of Representatives  when the original House Bill was withdrawn by Paul Ryan.

Senator Rand Paul, just like his father, believes doing-nothing is a strategy.  A clean repeal is an impossible pipe-dream.  Rand Paul is trying to convince the entire Senate to follow him to the couches and do nothing.

 

Like the financial system, there are too many complex special interests enmeshed within the construct of ObamaCare to generate any reasonable consensus on a one-size-fits-all rebuild.  Right now there are legions of paid actors, paid interests, all trying to secure their own individual stake within the aggregate healthcare market.

Big Pharma, Big Labor (unions), Big Corporations (U.S. CoC) and Big Ed (finance and delivery) all have stakes in ObamaCare.  That’s a bazillion lobbying interests, representing massive institutional systems, containing trillions of dollars, all simultaneously dispatching their Big Gun Lawyer/Lobbyists to protect their financial position.

♦Unions don’t want health insurance back in/on their liabilities.  ♦U.S. CoC Multinational Corporations (Wall Street) don’t want the liability of worker health insurance back on their ledgers. ♦Big Pharma does not want limits to how much they can charge (profits) and they want a small group of decision-makers they can purchase and influence. ♦Big Ed doesn’t want government to lose control over college education subsidies. etc. etc.

{{{Yikes – Piranhas}}}

The initial goal of ObamaCare was manipulatively sold by controlling interests as a program to insure the uninsured, approximately 30 million people (2009).  However, that was a farce clearly visible in hindsight. The actual goal(s) were established by all of the aforementioned interests.

Unfortunately, the ObamaCare scheme enmeshed, became self-actual, and weaponized itself -as predicted- against the ordinary middle class American.  150+ million people  punished. Essentially, if you are not on medicare/medicaid, or eligible therein, you got screwed on the individual market scheme.

But that’s hindsight. Done is done. That horse has left the barn, rode out of town, and is long gone….  Previous healthcare insurance toothpaste is not only out of tube, but dried, encrusted and licked away by the horse that galloped by… Done is done.

So… understanding the system has self-actuated, Trump’s team has a new approach to reversing the damage to the individual healthcare market similar to the parallel track approach of the economic financial and banking market.

The medicare (federal health insurance) and medicaid (state health insurance) systems will remain the government safety nets for older and lower income populations.  [Medicaid income eligibility qualifications in a 0 to 30-50k range depending on dependents.]  This should have been the original approach all along; to cover the uninsured by giving them access to medicaid and the entire mess could have been avoided.  Alas, that wasn’t the intent of the takeover for all of the aforementioned reasons.

Under Trump’s long-term (3 step) approach – the non-government healthcare market, the majority of the population, will break free from almost all of the ObamaCare government regulations; and the insurance market will be empowered to provide an insurance product that fits the individual needs of the person purchasing the insurance.

♦Dual System Approaches – Much like Secretary Mnuchin is proposing leaving government (via Dodd-Frank) attached to the “too-big-to-fail” group of banks and cutting all else loose from the regulations, so too is Secretary Price proposing to leave government attached to the “at risk population” (Medicare and Medicaid), the group 99% of all political talking points are structured around, and cut everyone else loose from the regulations.

•Step #1 establishes the ability (decouples ObamaCare).   •Step #2 allows HHS to frame the parallel system (deregulation). •Step #3 establishes the broader parameters for the non-government health insurance market.

The House passed their Step 1 version. The current Senate bill is their side of Step 1.

Republican Senators just don’t believe the Trump Movement is real. Republican Senators listen to the lobbyists.

Democrat Senators just don’t believe in the Bernie Sanders Movement. Democrat Senators listen to the lobbyists.

Republican Senators and Democrat Senators are the UniParty.

        maga, I agree with you. They are really democrats in republican dress. No matter what good is suggested for America, they always are negative. Frankly, their states need to impeach and remove them NOW! Trump said what he wanted, and Ryan and the establishment RINOS, democrats and DINOS need to wake up and realize we elected/hired them and we own them and not they us. We are tired of their becoming millionaires and responding to those who line their pockets which is why I say we need to remove all benefits/perks and that include those humongous salaries they gave themselves and all without our authorization and hence can be removed and we must drain the Congress swamp. They had better shape up and get with OUR program and not theirs. We are tired of their nasty selfishness and we must move to remove them. They seem to think we cannot, but we can and we must! We do not have the funds nor do we want more taxes nor do we want an even larger national debt. Frankly, I think we need to confiscate those huge monies they have taken and let them live just like we do, and that money to cover paying down the national debt. We do NOT want government involved n our lives but just what the Constitution says: Defend our nation, one general currency, and encourage international business. More we do not want any more. We are a Republic of and by the People and that means we are not a democracy (just a democratic capitalism) nor do we want to be a socialist nor communist country. We need to call the shots!

      MaineCoon,

      We had a good chance to defeat Rob Portman here in Ohio last year. Tom Connors, attorney from Canton, a good conservative Independent, was among 4 other candidates running against Portman. Think of it — Portman had 4 opponents in his Senate race!
      No one — I mean NO ONE would help Tom’s campaign. Not Tea Party leaders– not State Liberty Group leaders– NOT ONE of these ‘so-called conservatives’ helped Tom– and I am talking about Tea Party and Ohio liberty group leaders at the State level — one in particular, that has a radio show and has organized State Tea party conventions.
      Hey — Wasn’t that the whole idea of the Tea Party??! to clean out all the DC RINOs?!! Remember the slogan and bumper stickers? “Clean the House and Senate in 2010!
      — in 2012– in 2014 — in 2016!!
      Of all the Tea Party groups here in Ohio, possibly only one was out there walking the pavement and knocking on doors for Tom. In my county, only 2 of us that I know of passed out flyers or put up signs. I started in August and passed out over 2000 flyers and put up almost 2 dozen yard signs. Virtually no one cared. No one helped.
      So if Tea Party Patriots or any Ohio Tea Party ever asks you for a donation, first ask them what are they using the funds for? And ask them what did they do to help defeat Rob Portman in 2016?
      As far as I’m concerned, not only has the Tea Party become irrelevant, it’s become a sham.
      And MaineCoon, you want to replace all 100 of the sewer rats??!! Please pardon my hysterical laughter.

    The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary
    For Immediate ReleaseJune 27, 2017
    Remarks by President Trump at a Meeting with Republican Senators

    East Room

    4:08 P.M. EDT

    THE PRESIDENT: Well, I thought I’d ask you folks to come say hello, and we’ll discuss healthcare. We have really no choice but to solve this situation. Obamacare is a total disaster.

    It’s melting down as we speak. Rates are going up. In fact, it’s very interesting, Lisa, that you’re sitting next to me because, in Alaska, it was 206 percent — a 206 percent increase in Alaska. And I used to use Arizona as the standard; that was 116 percent. So it’s really meltdown, and we’re going to try and solve the problem.

    So I invited all of you, and I think we have either 52 out of 52, or 50 out of 52. And John, either one is pretty good, I think, as a percentage.

    So we’re going to talk and we’re going to see what we can do. We’re getting very close. But for the country, we have to have healthcare. And it can’t be Obamacare, which is melting down. The other side is saying all sorts of things before they even knew what the bill was. This will be great if we get it done. And if we don’t get it done, it’s just going to be something that we’re not going to like. And that’s okay, and I understand that very well.

    But I think we have a chance to do something very, very important for the public — very, very important for the people of our country that we love.

    So I’ll ask the press to leave. I greatly appreciate you folks being here. We love you very much. You’re very kind and very understanding. (Laughter.) But we will now ask you to leave. Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

    Q Mr. President, what do you think of the Senate bill?

    THE PRESIDENT: I think the Senate bill is going to be great. Thank you, everybody. Thank you. Such an understanding lot.

      I love the suggesting that ALL Congresspeople have to go on Ocare.

      Sen. Paul said this morning that the current bill repeals two (2) sections of the twelve (12) section law known as Ocare. He’s calm, rational and deliberate. May be the only one responding to his constituents, rather than lobbyists.

      I still think a viable, preferable option may be to let Ocare expire and let Secy. Price and Ms. Verma do what they can to deregulate while the Ocare ship goes down. Meanwhile, loudly blaming Dems. (or the UniParty, if you prefer.)

    The time is past. Obamacare is unfixable. The President seems to believe the GOP through a phased approach will replace Obamacare in good faith. They will not. The only solution is to repeal it.

        It’s inevitable, that’s essentially the way it’s done in the rest of the 1st world.

        Singapore has a very interesting and successful variation on it.
        Americans are simple souls, they don’t understand that insurance only works if the non claimers subsidise the claimers.

    In other articles Sundance outlines how the Trump administration is using a two track approach to dismantling excessive regulations: keeping part of the old system in place for the biggest firms while freeing vast swaths of industry.

    For example, keeping all the two big to fail banks under the current regulatory scheme well freeing the smaller banks from the requirements.

    Instead of repealing and replacing Obamacare, all they need to do is got it and then permit the free market to provide solutions to all except for the very poor and the people in the Safetynet. Competition is what it is, and nobody is going to want to be on government healthcare. It doesn’t matter if it’s called Obamacare or Trump care or Ryan care or Medicaid.

    “There is a reason why Harry Reid ‘sequestered’ the entire Senate for two weeks before Christmas 2009, never let them leave for holiday recess and forced a vote on Christmas Eve at 1:38 in the morning. If they don’t get it done now, it’s dead.”

    ___________

    Which, coincidentally, is exactly what the Deep State UniParty Globalist anti-American Never-Trump Traitors WANT.

    They want it DEAD.

    They have been paid MILLIONS of dollars to KILL IT, and keep Obamacare.

    That must be the root takeaway of 20% of all the articles published on CTH!

    The only way you (we) are ever going to stop what is called here “the Big Club” is if “the Big Club” is EXPOSED in the light of day.

    If even just 25% of the voting public understood the basics that are revealed here on CTH, “the Big Club” would be toast. They can’t operate in sunlight, and if 25% (or more) of the voters were looking RIGHT AT THEM, there is no dark corner where they could go to hide.

    And none of their Marionettes (our treasonous Congress cockroaches) would be able to hide either.

    But instead, the focus is always on the Kabuki theater show, never on the Puppet Masters.

    I despise every single one of these corrupt sellouts. I don’t believe that their agenda has anything to do with mine. In fact, they are my enemies. From Rand Paul the grandstanding midget to McCain the despicable traitor to every pearl-bedecked shriveled mummy to every Mormon NeverTrumper.

    They can be bought, though. It is all about the right price.

    Why can’t the President and a few supporters of this bill appear on national tv and walk the American public through what he is attempting to do or undo.

    Didn’t Rand Paul run for pre-selection and didn’t he get beaten by Trump? Now he wants to force HIS agenda on to Pres Trump, not having done the hard yards to get elected as President himself. This fellow wants a good kick in the rear.
