President Trump Delivers Stern Remarks During GOP Senator Luncheon Discussing Healthcare (Video)…

“For seven years you promised the American people you would repeal Obamacare. People are hurting and frankly inaction is not an option.”

~ President Donald Trump

President Donald Trump held a luncheon for Senate Republicans on Wednesday and delivered stern remarks toward their failure to reach agreement on repealing or overhauling Obamacare.  President Trump demanded they keep their campaign promises and find a new healthcare approach.

.

President Trump told the 49 senators who came to a White House luncheon today they should not leave Washington for a planned August recess until they can find common ground on healthcare and do the job Americans are paying them to do.

            You know, you are on to something that would work. Threaten to shut down the agriculture subsides to all the oats, corn, wheat and barley growers in the three county area surrounding the Western KY bourbon trail, and the law firms in Louisville and Lexington who represent them, and guess what we get Rand’s vote and the Turtle magically becomes an advocate for Trump.

          Don’t blame it on us in Kentucky. He has this state locked up. Our current governor, Matt Blevins, gave ole Mitch a run for his money and Mitch helped him to become the governor to get him off his back. Mitch brings home the bacon to the people of his district.

Matter of fact, the Kentucky house went Republican after some what 60 years, the Governor signed right to work and did away with prevailing wage. Kentucky is on the move.

The way they talk the state is ole boy, Boss Hogg corrupt, and has a contingent of trashy people who would rather work less than prosper more. That’s coming from Kentuckians, so don’t shoot the messenger. I used to visit there a lot as a child and have personally noticed property has gone downhill a lot over the years in some places, but I think a lot of that can be blamed on the fact that Kentucky’s demographics match the segment of the American population that has been hit hardest by globalism.

It never occurred to me the information would completely disappear, but it has.

    I have a different take on what is going on here.

    PDJT gave the senate a chance to do their job, and as we knew they would, they failed to do it.

    He told them in no uncertain terms to at least repeal o’care.

    But, I don’t think they will. Those three women senators who should have a (D) by their name rather than an (R) will vote against it.

    So what will PDJT accomplish?
    (a) put all the senators on record so he can help primary the traitors.
    (b) Over 95 percent of republicans will be on record as having tried to repeal and replace without a single democrat helping.
    (c) He has positioned himself and the vast majority of Republican congress as blameless for the next couple of years as O’care truly dies on its own.
    (d) At that point dems will be forced by constituents to actually govern and help the republicans replace O’care with a functional program.

    At least I hope this is the outcome. If the repubs do repeal without a replacement, those idiots will let the two year grace period go by without a good plan to replace it; just like they have let the last 7 years go by. They’ve been paid not to replace it by the lobbyists. And then we will take the blame for repealing a perfect program like O’care (remember, the MSM has never acknowledged it is a failing, unsustainable program).

            Absolutely, but people like Collins and McCain have “guaranteed” seats due to name recognition so they can essentially ignore the voters.

            And with no dem support it only takes a few republican defections to torpedo the bill.

            Any replacement bill that isn’t a giveaway to business and insurance companies will lose by one vote in the Senate. Guaranteed.

            If we repeal o’care with no replacement, all public pressure will be on us, and we will get zero dem support. That makes it easy for the repubs to arrange the vote to lose by one.

            If O’care dies on its own, public anger will be focussed on both parties, and we might get some dem support.

            Anyway, this is just my take on it. Time will tell, but PDJT has played it as perfectly as this rigged game allows,

The press says he’s against it because 200,000 Nevada Medicaid recipients will lose their coverage if the bill passes. What’s more accurate is that perhaps their coverage will be cut back more than they would like, like what happened to millions of the rest of us. Sorry but I don’t sympathize anymore. My insurance premiums tripled since 5 years ago, so I finally had to dump the good plan I had and go with the cheapest option. Now I am paying approximately the same premiums I paid 5 years ago, but nothing is covered, so I’m getting raped at the pharmacy and doctor’s office. God forbid someone in the family ends up in the ER.

          My message to Sen. Heller is this: stop being stupid and thinking you are buying 200,000 votes by voting no. Myself, and many many others WILL NOT vote for you if you stop the health care bill. In case you are too stupid to realize it, Dean, you were seated next to President Trump during the meeting because he wanted the whole nation to watch as he set your ass on fire.

        If the ‘single payer’ is the patient, that is the ideal situation. Of course, that is not what the politicians, or the insurance companies have in mind, now is it?? All medical expenses should be between a doctor, hospital, etc. and the patient. Then we would see medical expenses come down to earth quickly! Very simple really, and certainly doesn’t take a genius to figure it out.

      Geez, people we don’t need a replacement ! Before O-Dont-Care I had great insurance. Now I have no insurance as my lowest premium bronze plan under O-dont-care is $1400/month for one individual with a $6700 yearly deductible.

      Just let the insurance companies do what they did before Obozo blew up the individual market.

        Tom, the problem is that O’care threw a lot of responsible, insured people off of their policies onto O’care.

        Many of these did or now have pre-existing conditions. I O’care goes away without a replacement for them, they are uninsurable through no fault of their own.

        I’ve got great insurance, so it doesn’t affect me, but I feel the country has a responsibility to those that O’care disrupted. I’m not a very social person, yet I could easily count ten people I know who lost their insurance and were kicked onto O’care because employers were jettisoning their health care to let O’care take the cost.

    I LOVE our President! I felt his heart today! We as Americans will NEVER EVER have another President that loves the citizens and the country like he does.

    I love the fact that he had some of the “Medicaid Whores” right next to him. Heller (NV), Murkowski (AK) and Capito (WV). He gave Capito, Murkowski, Portman (OH), Hoevan (ND) and Heller an out by saying he doesn’t want to see just a straight repeal. He also put tremendous pressure on the other 2 RATS (Lee from UT and Moran from KS) that decided to blindside him Monday night by saying they would not vote for the 2nd revised bill to go to the floor.

    Folks I know exactly what our LION is going to do about allowing insurance companies to be sold across state lines. He is absolutely right that it would take 60 votes. He is going to come out with a super bill that includes Elijah Cummings proposal about lowering the cost of prescription drugs. Don’t forget that our President met with Cummings back in early March. Democrats will feel the pressure of the world to support it because not only is Cummings a Democrat but he is a BLACK Rep. from Baltimore.

    The letdown of the last 48 hrs has left a whole in my heart. I am not going to get excited like I have in the past. I will sleep like a baby though knowing our President left it ALL on the field!

    Rep. Elijah Cummings said that President Donald Trump was “enthusiastic” about legislation that he was co-authoring to give the federal government more power to negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies to keep medical costs down for Americans.

    “What we have is a lot of companies, pharmaceutical companies, that are raising the prices of drugs unreasonably,” the Maryland Democrat told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. “You go to a drug store in January, it’s $100. You go back a month later, it’s $600. We see it over and over again.

      When I saw President Trump’s kids in action, I thought to myself a man who can raise children such as that and earn their love and respect as adults and coworkers, well, that really says something about the character of Donald Trump.

      And I agree, I see articles all the time about how Pence is a snake and plotting against the President. I just don’t buy it. Pence is sincerely a Christian, and I see that look he gives President Trump and the look on his face is surely the same expression on mine when I watch the President.

    My suggestion: Dismantle as much of Obamacare as possible in step 1, with the original Cruz Amendment (or else pass it separately as part of step 3.)

    Right now the GOP is crashing against the Maginot Line defending Obamacare. The Cruz Amendment goes around it, bypassing the defenses, and allows insurance companies to sell “pre-ACA” policies. You know – the one Obama lied about you being able to keep?

    Under the ACA Americans have been forced into the Obamacare Concentration Camp; the original Cruz Amendment tears down the fence.

      6×47 your killing me! I don’t want to get my hopes up again but your absolutely right about the Cruz amendment and it has nothing to do with the Cuban. His amendment would kill the entire concept of Obamacare and show how much of a fraud it was. I think Uniparty Republicans are petrified of that. That is why they never allowed the CBO to share his score. The public cannot see it or else this mirage all goes away. Our President also hinted in the clip there was something there for the folks with preexisting conditions.

      I shared this in the past but felt it would reiterate your point and my point:

      This article really does a great job articulating what Sundance from TCTH has been saying about separating those Americans that need to continue to purchase the Obamacare plan versus the others that just need the insurance of their choice that meets their need.

      https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/06/22/if-you-follow-president-trumps-healthcare-path-heres-what-you-get/

      There are approximately 1.5 million Americans that have no choice but to purchase the Obamacare plan with all 10 essential benefits. There are nearly 300+ million Americans that don’t either because they have insurance through their employers, Medicaid, Medicare or because they are healthy and only need a catastrophic policy.

      http://www.kitv.com/story/35892263/why-the-cruz-amendment-is-smart-policy

      From the article linked above:

      The Cruz amendment — which has been inserted into the GOP Senate health plan — is smart, because it doesn’t take anything away from anyone. If you want Obamacare — you can have it. You can have the coverage for the 10 “essential benefits,?” you can have the subsidies and the exchanges that were supposed to save $2,500 per family. It’s still there for you.

      The Cruz? amendment creates what is called a “Consumer Freedom Option.” This essentially allows an “off-ramp” from Obamacare for the tens of millions of Americans who don’t want it. The “Consumer Freedom Option” allows insurers who offer Obamacare-compliant plans to offer a range of much less costly plans. In other words, it empowers people and families to pick and choose what they want in their own insurance package

      What about families or individuals with lower incomes or healthy life styles that want the other extreme? They want slimmed-down coverage that protects them from major medical expenses — a bad injury like breaking a leg, or a serious disease with costly ongoing treatments. ?These families may voluntarily choose to pay for more routine medical expenses, like a checkup or a visit to the dentist’s office, out of pocket. One benefit is that since more people will pay directly for medical services, they are likely to shop around for the best price, and this competition will lower prices for everyone.

      Cruz provides billions of dollars of subsidies for people who have pre-existing conditions and high medical costs. This number is much smaller than the media is saying. Cruz believes the number of people without private insurance (mostly through their employers), who don’t have adequate coverage for preexisting conditions is about 1.5 million people. Why contaminate a functioning insurance market for 300 million people, to give coverage to 1.5 million?

      If his amendment stands, the left’s grand vision of a single-payer government-run health insurance dystopia will go up in smoke for good. The left wants everyone in the same insurance boat. No choice. No competition in plans. But once people are given the right to choose the health plan that is affordable to them and tailored to their individual needs, they will resist single-payer, one-size-fits-all insurance. It doesn’t take a village to buy a health plan.

      In CTH parlance, Assad is one of the “zookeepers” that Obama/Clinton tried to kill. The Russians stepped in and saved Assad, but the Big Cats are still out of their cages and armed.

      If the US quits arming and training the Syrian “rebels” then it clears the way for a broader de-escalation and focus on destroying ISIS.

      We truly have a weird dichotomy happening in the 2018 Senatorial Elections. Here is some information pertaining to who is up for reelection in 2018. Please keep in mind that this dichotomy is tremendously in OUR favor.

      Thirty-four of the 100 Senate seats are up for reelection.

      The Republicans will be defending just 9 seats, while the Democrats will be fighting for 23 — plus another 2 held by independents who caucus with Democrats.

      Democrats are expected to target the Senate seats in Nevada, Arizona, and Texas. The ONLY state we may lose is NV! We will win TX and AZ. The question for both of those states is who will be the Republican nominee. At the end of the day I believe it will be Ted Cruz in TX and Jeff DeWit. Both will win against the Democrat in November 2018.

      I think what’s happening is this: As President Trump continues to un-mask “The Big Club” and “The Establishment”, more and more of the true believers (including some ‘never-Trumpers”) are experiencing the cognitive dissonance of watching their political heroes betray them and the ideas they cherish.

      These insufferable self-righteous prigs are like the farm animals at the end of “Animal Farm” looking through the window at the card game and being unable to distinguish the animals from the humans. Or in the case, the CONservatives from the Progressives.

      And then they see the one leading the good fight with wolverine-like courage and tenacity in Washington, DC is … that man they thought they hated so much, President Donald J. Trump.

      The scales are beginning to fall from the eyes … slowly, but surely.

      What a great time to be alive!

    The only thing missing from PDJT’s scolding to the Senators today was a phrase he has used before ” go home to mommy” seriously these over paid buffoon’s surely are not representing us at all just their own special interests.Grandstanding, lying, whining, uncooperative is what most are.

    Perceptions:
    *Capito and Murkowski (her especially) look like there is a horse’s head under the table. Neither skunks applauded after President Trump’s remarks. Body language was cowed on both of them. Would have loved for the camera to pan over at Murkowski when Trump talked of Alaska premiums doubling and how it was hurting the people of AK. Yeah, defend that MurCOWski.

    Somebody please ‘esplain Capito from WV to me.. What up with that? Does she think the 27 point margin Trump win in WV meant her rogue act would go unnoticed? Is she trying to out Democrat Manchin? He’s definitely out-Conservativing her…

    And then the seating – I noticed that Seema Verma was next to Collins who sat next to Grahamnesty and Toomey. And then Pence. Bookended. Collins looked like she walked to the WH because her broom wouldn’t start. And Graham looked as nervous as a wh*re in church – or him in church, same difference. Lee, on the other side of Pence looked like he’d gotten an F on his homework. And he did.

    Putting the snark pen down. Our President spoke with our Voices today. He made us heard!!! All that was missing was the line “There’s no crying in baseball!” Get to work.

    Can they hear us now? We shall surely see — because we are watching.

    Just sent my note of gratitude to the president via whitehouse.gov Feel free to do the same:
    Thank you Mr President for trying so hard to repeal and replace Obamacare! This is a total disaster that I tried to stop years ago. No one would listen because Obama was lying to everyone.
    I really enjoyed your message to the Republicans at lunch today. Thank you for serving them a “cold can of whoop azz”. Let’s see if they finally fulfill the will of the people and their campaign promises!

    Portman is our Medicaid whore and I just gave a 15 min rant to an aide and he listened. I will work my tail off to primary him and told the aide the same… this is a fight and I love a good fight! I don’t qualify for a subsidy so I pay the penalty, I’ve not had insurance in over 4 years. If I am sick I go to an urgent care and pay cash and honestly it works beautifully for me, so until they fix this debacle I’ll gladly pay 150.00 dollars to be seen and get a shot if needed.

    These elected frauds in the senate, which include most of them, do not give one whit about the people who elected them. They can’t see past the thousands of dollars they get from the lobbyists. I heard either Rush or Hannity yesterday say that in an interview with Cruz, the first time he was elected, Cruz said his biggest surprise was actually going to work and finding out that the majority worked 90% of their time raising money to be re-elected, and the other 10 still doing as little as possible. This is NOT to say I am, or have ever been, a Cruz-bot, because definitely NOT true, but I think that does describe most of congress, both houses. And isn’t it too damned bad that so many of these crooks are lawyers?? No wonder our system, etc., is in shambles as they know how, and work, to shape the law(S) to benefit THEM!

    I think another thing we can do is call and/or write these crooks yet again, and again, and again.

    Just read this at Gateway Pundit:

    THE LIBERAL MEDIA IS COVERING UP JOHN McCAIN’S LIFE-THREATENING BRAIN SURGERY! Dr. Milton Wolf is a board-certified diagnostic radiologist in Kansas. The good doctor is also President Barack Obama’s second cousin, once removed. Dr. Wolf ran for the US Senate against Senator Pat Roberts in 2014 and narrowly lost to the longtime senator in the GOP primary.

    Americans need to organize cold anger non violent protests. Clog up the works. Sit in the door ways. Fill the room so they [the establishment] can’t function. Until we get our Health Care repeal and a good replacement that works for us. This needs to be a national movement. Someone should set up a website. I would if I knew how to. Otherwise they ain’t listening.

    Interesting comment from LI,,, just wanted to share… from Fen

    http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/07/what-the-heck-is-going-on-with-healthcare-reform/#comment-767735


    I have known McConnell. He has balls and he has spine. He is highly intelligent and very shrewd.
    He has been a US Senator for 30 years. A whip for 5 years. The GOP minority/majority leader for 10 years.
    You don’t accomplish all that via cowardice or incompetence.
    He’s just not on our team.

    BTW he was a Senator for 32 years… mentioned later.

    I have no idea who this person(Fen) is… none,, it pretty much mirrors what SD has told us. A couple comments up from that one Fen said.

    Short version – the GOP Congress has a pattern and history of pretending to support something for the base, but sets up the process so that their attempt fails, while making it appear they tried everything possible to get it done.

    In this particular instance, I would chat up lobbyists for the Insurance industry. I suspect that the current status quo is exactly what they hoped for, and that large sums of money are being kickbacked into campaign war chests of the GOP.

    hhhhmmmmmmm, now where have I heard the exact same thing???

  36. The good thing about President Trump is – he NEVER says that the sky is falling to scare gullible people.
    Couple of examples:
    Paris Accord – We will see. If things changes as per our expectations it is fine, if it doesn’t it is going to be okay.
    North Korea / China – We will see. If China helps, it is good. If they don’t it is going to be okay.
    Of course this is not verbatim but paraphrasing him.
    Contrast that to any other “politicians” in similar situation and the message will be sky is falling, e.g. every politicians reaction to U.S. withdrawal from Paris Accord – when the matter of fact will be, if asked, what is the composition of atmosphere, most will draw blank.
