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.

    Ok, I’ve already seen a couple people say that Trump should force Congress to use Obamacare themselves. I think that is a modest beginning, and anything less than that is unacceptable. Our president has been as nice and accommodating as possible. Now it’s time to make them suffer.

      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.

    Trump said throughout the campaign that letting Obamacare implode would be the best thing to do politically but not the right thing to do to the American people.

      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.

    The Repubs clearly want to lose the House and/or Senste in 2018. There is no point in voting for a Dem in Repubs clothing. Worried about Impeachment of President Trump? Why would anyone be.ieve these republican backstabbers wouldn’t vote for impeachment as well?

      I work for a company that has thousands of “contractors” as a response to the Obamacare issue. There are no benefits for these people who work alongside those who have great benefts.

    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.

        https://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2017/04/19/exposing-the-real-agenda-behind-the-push-for-an-article-v-convention/

        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.

    This is not as bad as everyone thinks. Yes the bill failed but it will just let us replace a lots of RINOs and it saved the house from having to vote on a bad bill. The bill was bad it did not address most of the issues that are wrong with the Healthcare system. Now we have a chance to add as many as 14 pro trump senators in 2018.

    We need a third party.

    The Republicans aren’t interested in working with Trump yet our base is large and not going anywhere. Technology can replace many of the organizational functions of a political party and our base throws off a ton of small donations that, together, add up to a lot of money.

    The GOPe will disappoint us every time and it seems our only option is to elect a lot more GOPe senators.

    Third party. It’s time.

  27. 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.
