Sunday Talks: Mick Mulvaney -vs- Jake Tapper on Bailouts and ObamaCare…

This is actually a funny video, Mick Mulvaney did great.

Bubble Boy Tapper’s furrowed brow begins deepening when he asks OMB Director Mick Mulvaney if President Trump really means he’s willing to remove the congressional ObamaCare subsidy and Mulvaney responds with a simple: ‘Yep, sure does; and I just happened to talk to him yesterday about this’…

Bubble People never know what to do when ordinary people they are questioning embrace the ugly and and say “yes, bring it on”.  Oh, the indecency….  “Fireworks”!

          Yeah, he has. I didn’t phrase that quite right. When Trump first selected him I didn’t have high expectations but he has delivered time and again since he took the position and I wasn’t expecting that.

        I am not familiar with him but like his matter of fact no nonsense attitude.
        I like Trump’s approach to making Congress and the STAFFERS suffer too.
        Staffers suffering caught the attention of Tapper. trump should make them suffer too. Why should we subsidize those useless people? I can’t think of a reason. I find it outrageous that we are doing that.

      Yes, I agree Mulvaney is honest man and I am thankful for his willingness to serve. But to get an idea of how entrenched the compulsion is to hide the truth is in Washington DC go back an listen to Mick Mulvaney beat around the bush as to what the congressional health care subsidies really are – all he has to say is that the American people are paying the premiums for members of Congress and their staff – but he just can’t. And that if working Americans are forced, by law, to pay to endure the pain of paying $1800 per month for heath care insurance with an 8 to 10 thousand dollar deductible before they can ever use it – so should members of Congress and their staff.

      Toward the end Mick Mulvaney slips in something about employer subsidy and quietly mentions that the government is the employer in this case but for the most part the idea that we taxpayers pay their premiums is lost in parseltounge.

    Tapper completed uninformed. Surprised?

    Congress gamed the system, with the help of Hussein, by calling themselves small businesses – below 50 employees – to qualify for a government subsidy to help defray costs. Something like $12,000 per person.

    I was hoping to hear more about Mr Tapper’s blue collar roots. Figured he’d be wearing a Ben Davis shirt, and have a bug thermos full of coffee next to him. Maybe start using words like “D8 Cat”, “Link Belt”, “derailment”, “Cummins diesel”, etc. Expect him to say the “jake brake” was named after him.

        Jake brake is a device in a Diesel engine that dumps the compression of the cylinder. It is very effective for engine braking of a truck without having to apply the brakes of the truck.

      • Frank says:

        “Jake Brake” is a brand name / synonym for an engine brake. Commercial trucks like 18-wheelers and dump trucks are usually equipped with one. It helps limit speed by placing some of the burden of slowing on the engine rather than placing it all on the brakes. The trade-off is that it makes the engine very loud while the brake is is active. If you’ve ever heard a big rig suddenly “growling” as it slows to a stop or slowing as it enters a curve, that’s the Jake brake.

              My drivers were and are the best. I live in a rural area and off the beaten path so I load 24/7 so my trucks never have to sit down and lose money waiting for me to get my rest. I live in a rural area so I would bring my mom down to FL from KY. and she would cook for the drivers. LOL People in my industry are always slamming truck drivers about being late etc. but it’s not their fault they have no control over others not being ready to load, weather or traffic. My drivers bring the families to meet me during there time off at Christmas, I love each and everyone of them I ever had the pleasure of loading.

                God bless you for showing them kindness and respect. I have ridden with my son, and I can tell you, many don’t. And sometimes they spend unnecessary hours getting unloaded or waiting on paperwork because some mini dictator wants to feel important, not caring that they are impacting the truckers livelihood.

                  Without people such as your son most of us would be out of business. Truck drivers work very hard and have a thankless job. I always make it a point to let the company I’m loading know what wonderful drivers they have. When I first started in this industry the whispers across this country from the east coast to the west coast and North East was I wonder what she’s (FEMALE) doing for these men they sure do like her. You get my drift of what was being implied? One transportation manager point blank ask me what was I doing that the MEN at the other stops couldn’t do for these truckers. My answer then and remains my answer today is treat them the way I want to be treated. Tell you son to stay safe and to be careful when he’s on the road away from his family trying to make a living. Tell him I care and wish him the best!

    I’ve only watched two of these things today, this one and Wallace with KAC, and the question about who will report to the Chief of Staff was almost identical. Their first stab at it, “Will everyone on the White House staff report to Kelly?” didn’t yield the information they desperately wanted, so they had to try again.. “Who will Anthony Scaramucci report to?”

    Corey Lewandowsky also did a splendid job today on the Sunday talks – against Chuck Todd who spent the whole time trying to smear President Trump – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxTOD78wtNQ

    President Trump has used Corey several times lately. After leaving the Trump campaign, Lewandowski tried starting a political consulting group with another guy, but the DC establishment stomped them and accused them of operating a lobbying business without registering as a lobbyist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corey_Lewandowski

    I’ve had a special place in my heart for CL, after the whole mess with crazy Michelle Fields false accusations.

      The piece is 18 months old, and I wonder if their stock will take a beating after their bailout money is taken away. I did find this interesting:

      “One of the program’s biggest cheerleaders, in fact, is Chuck Schumer (D- N.Y.), who will replace Harry Reid as the Democrats’ leader in the Senate next year. If Democrats take back the upper chamber, which is quite possible, Schumer will be Senate Majority Leader. Regardless, he is just one of the industry’s many friends in very high places.

    It just occurred to me that the reason that all these talking heads keep asking about who reports to who and what the chain of command and pecking order will be in the white house with General Kelley as Chief of Staff is because the MSM is really afraid of Antony Scaramucci. It seems that they recognize him as a powerful person and want to see him contained.

    As an off-topic aside, I realized as I was watching the interview, subconsciously I expected the “CNN” logo to be covering someone’s face and then being smacked around by a “Trump” character.

    I don’t see “CNN” as a logo anymore, I subconsciously, automatically, see it as a gimmick in a cartoon deathmatch – lol. If that becomes widespread, CNN will have lost their trademark, as a practical matter.
