Overnight Livestream – Senate Healthcare Debate and Upcoming “Skinny Repeal” Vote…

The Senate is Debating the “Skinny Repeal” (full pdf below) bill to reform ObamaCare.  A vote is anticipated around 12:00am EDT to 1:00am EDT.  The bill is below so you can review the language.

The “skinny repeal” plan would eliminate the individual mandate (requiring nearly all Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty), and repeals the employer mandate (which obligates larger companies to provide affordable coverage to their full-time workers).  The plan would also get rid of the Obamacare tax on medical device makers.  The senate debate is ongoing.

      Murkowski is also in charge of slow walking the President’s nominees. She does McGobbler’s dirty work in committee. Both she and the Hepburn wannabe Collins are paid very well by big insurers to fight any repeal and to pave the way to single-payer. What is interesting to me is that the leftists on NBC at the 2012 London Olympics had a Busby Berkeley number praising the English healthcare system as propaganda to America into accepting their system and adopting it, back in the days when Obama kept spewing lies. Now, with what happened tonight, and with the last few weeks of a dying tiny infant boy in England, we have the bookend of what can happen with such a system, yet these criminal traitors who are supposed to work for we the people, want Charlie Gard-like tragedies to happen here. These are not Americans, these are globalist scum. If only we had a referendum vote right now, we’d see the lot of them thrown out of Congress.

    If we were to riot in the streets and drag these politicians from their houses and hang them in the streets then Trump could declare a state of emergency, make Congress null and void, send them all home, and us his executive privilege to rule and reign.

    He would help us take our government back- he doesn’t want to be there forever, nor does he WANT to rule and reign, but we need him to for awhile- just to save our Republic.

      McLame’s always been a traitor. He gladly sang for the Viet Cong. He was a “maverick” on the Forrestal, which was a whitewash for not doing what he was supposed to do, killing sailors, and for which he should have been imprisoned. His daddy and Nixon saved his political career. His narcissism wouldn’t allow him to stay with his first wife whose looks changed when he returned, and from what I’ve read, he’s never been faithful to his second, whom he married for money. Out of his greed, he was involved with the Keating Five, for which he should have been imprisoned. Out of his hatred for America, he has been lavishly funded by Soros through his McCain Institute, which is little more than a Clinton-style money laundering enterprise, and for which he should be under investigation. McLame’s hatred for President Trump is such that he accepted (IIRC) monies from Hitlery, and also from Soros, to be part of their “resistance” to defeat President Trump (and thereby all of us) at every opportunity. So, the self-annointed maverick was just following orders from his controllers after he was shown the queen of diamonds.

    Please stop saying ‘throw them out’, ‘hang them’, ‘march on Washington’, or ‘vote them out’. Those are 1990’s tactics. The only way is for the states to stop the federal government cold. If you want to make a difference do something at the state level plus support Trump asking for a CoS. Otherwise when Pence or the next democrat gets in they just swing the pendulum the other way.

          A Convention of States would be the END of these United States.

          Those pushing for it have duped Conservatives, hoping that our passion for Liberty would be the mindless force that actually brings about the Totalitarian Monstrosity that would destroy Liberty, enshrine Socialism and grossly favor Islamists while Radically Diminishing the Influence of the Christian Faith.

          The Article V Convention of the States must be opposed most vociferously and the actual adoption of the Scheme be warily regarded as the Assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, the beginning of a massive Civil War that will end badly, for no enemy of the US would fail to take advantage of our disunion and confusion.

          MAKE THEM ABIDE THE CONSTITUTION THAT WE HAVE.

          Even if only the Levin Ammendments were adopted, it would not constrain Congress. Congress does not abide the Constitution that we have now!

          The Constitution is an inspired document, having an effect on the Civilizing of Man World-Wide rivaling the Holy Bible itself. The extinguishing of which would have Disasterous Global Impact.

          We have no men of the Founders’ Caliber today, Save One. Today’s men of power fight that One Good Man at every turn. That says all one needs to know regarding the nature of those charged with the “Ammendment” of the Constitution, which would be the Complete Destruction of that Instrument and a Full Reversal of it’s Intents and it’s Fruits.

    I am prepared for the flinging of snark coming my way as many will slam me for negativity. So be it. I support President Trump 100% . Yes , he did say let it explode and watch them deal. But sadly ,the president is a patriot who still believes . I was once too but no more. I watched my Constitutional Republic take its last gasp at about 1 am . Yep start piling on and tell me to buck up and blah blah . Does anyone really believe Mitch brought that vote to the floor without knowing he did not have the votes? McCain was the logical one to be the third nail and provide cover for the charade that Mitch and the Republican party were really trying to deliver on their commitment to voters. So I ask you all….what leverage is really in play where an entire two party system has zero fear of the voters wrath? Allow me to answer ,not any leverage players who could operate with impunity in a true Constitutional Republic , not on this large of a scale. Hours ago our country just cemented Universal Health Coverage for all. Maybe not this year , or the next but very soon. The President says let it collapse and then they will deal ..who is they? Mitch? The Republicans? Does anyone really think after watching last evenings vote that Republicans would not side with Schumer every time passing more bail outs to insurance companies and worse and sending them to Trump’s pen? And so he veto’s a few , rapidly this country will be screaming for relief from the horrific outcomes of the collapse and do you really believe Trump will just sit back and avoid helping? This is watching a slow train wreck ,and with each fix with the dems in full control .that make it to his desk eventually a Medicare for all will get signed in the peak of the crisis to soothe the Americans’s screams.And Our President’s signature will be on that massive entitlement! He may not want this to happen but by design it will. Meanwhile , this Uni seditious crew will limp along tax reform until it is pablum and will make no significant impact on economic engines and due to a tremendous loss of capital and weakening our president has suffered at the hands of his party ..he will be starved for some win , any piece of legislation he can sign to say see I passed tax reform. You doubt this? why would you trust any of the Rep Senate to pass his proposals tax or otherwise? They have proven they are his and our enemies last evening and have lied and manipulated us all. By this time right before mid terms , the presidency will be so weakened by failures delivered by GOP , the President will work side by side with Chuckie to pass massive infrastructure bill costing tax payers a trillion dollars! So help me see how we take mid terms? or 2020 Presidency ? And so what if we do …elections , votes , have made zero difference . We have no Representation other than Trump. The president cannot transform and implement his policies without congress. I do not blame President Trump he was delivered into the bowels of evil. For me, I see no course for hope. I know far too well that the health care delivery system has already suffered almost irreparable damage and allowing this to continue for the next few years with patches will only murder standard of care and delivery . No , your grandchildren will be living in socialist , rationed system with substandard care , One that crushes our Republic’s ability to be solvent as the dependency state explodes well beyond predicted outcomes. 20 trill debt will be 30 trill by 2028 and the damage to our tax revenue from the depression we will have once real meaningful tax reform fails and continuing economic crushing ACA will set us on a course of empire collapse. Once again all by calculated design. If you are young enough , you will live to see a new bill of rights , a new Constitution and America becoming apart of a Union with other nations. Yes ,yes cry out Debbie downer if you must but the window to really stop this march closed with McCain’s Nay! Oh we will vote good guys in ? How will you insure they are not immediately corrupted , blackmailed , leveraged? We have crossed the Rubicon now . This is far bigger than the H/C vote going down . This is part of what you and I have been witnessing as the swamp bubbles and burns . Anyone who truly believes we are winning against the swamp is sadly in denial . The swamp ate your future last might and is laughing at you .I pray President Trump and his family remain safe ( I mean that literally ). I will always admire and respect the President for his fierce righteousness and warrior stance. Unfortunately the battle was over and he and we were already captive…..we just did not know it and still had hope. When people lose all hope they do desperate things . So say I am wrong and being counter productive . But unless I witness millions in the streets demanding Congress to act and keeping that level of pressure in view and on parade I will continue to believe we lost .

Free and government subsidized health care, welfare and a ponzi retirement scheme paid for by the American taxpayer now severely threatens the ability of the average American to attain or maintain financial freedom. Our way of life is threatened and is becoming substandard due to “free” or “subsidized” government programs and their ponzi schemes. The average Americans freedom of choice of food, clothing, health care, fuel, transportation etc. has already been impacted by our dysfunctional government and to continue funding those free programs simply moves the average American closer to a life of poverty. A Native American chief is credited with saying that one day the white man would have only his money left to eat. Unfortunately by that time all but the wealthiest will have already starved to death and that is where we are headed.
