This needs to happen. Make these Corrupt Elitist Pigs (Pelosi, McCain, Schumer, etc) have the same Health Care as us.
In an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News that was aired on Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence was asked to reflect on President Trump perspective on the so-far failed efforts on the part of the Senate to produce a suitable health care reform bill.
When Carlson asked Pence, “Why should Members of Congress and their staffs have a better deal, not subject to the same rules as everybody else is?,” the Vice President answered:
“That’s pretty typical of Washington, isn’t it? You, more often than not, see one set of rules for the American people and another set of rules for the political class here in our nation’s capital. but as we move forward, the point is that whether the president makes a decision, it would be his decision whether to rescind that special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs.”
He went on to say, “What we want is a health care system that works for all of the American people.” Pence explained that one element of health care reform should be cheaper coverage. “I think the primary goal first is to give people freedom over their own health care choices again,” said Pence.
Pence said that the Trump administration intends to keep its promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
Back in 2013, as the January 1, 2014 implementation date for ObamaCare’s individual and employer mandates approached, members of Congress were worried less about how the law would affect their constituents than they were about how the law would affect themselves and their staffs.
From The Hill:
If Susan Rice did nothing wrong, and was just “doing her job” then why did she FLAT-OUT LIE and claim she “knew nothing” about the unmasking?
FLASHBACK: Susan Rice said ‘I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that account today’.
Susan Rice lies effortlessly. Now, we know for a fact, each time she blinks is a lie.
Let’s face it… our whole political system could be compromised. How many Republicans have been surveilled (probably all of them, because we’re all surveilled now) and changed their votes because they’ve been compromised in this or other ways? Will we ever know?
Why did Supreme Court Justice Roberts change his vote on ObamaCare at the last-minute with a nonsensical decision? What convinced him to change his vote and damage his reputation?
Why did Republicans so often, so inexplicably, cave under Obama when it mattered most? Why do reformers, who are sent to Washington to – you know – reform, so often turn to swamp rats? Why do the conservative wolves always turn to wimps when it really matters? It can’t just be just about the money.
Why does so much of what we’re told, and even the way these people talk on TV, look like C-grade kabuki theater or something out of the Soviet Kremlin? Why does so much of what these people say look like bad acting? Why were most political speeches so damn hollow before Trump came on the scene? Hmm…
We don’t live in the free country we thought we lived in. Many of us just didn’t know it. We live in the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. More specifically, the Soul Snatchers.
Fake News?! We’re a Fake Republic. Let’s face it. And just electing Trump doesn’t begin to restore what the Founders gave us (and we lost).
We live in a world where the CIA is funding ISIS, pretending to be Russian hackers and actively working to take out an American President. And top Republicans support them!
It seems like between the CIA, NSA, IRS, DOJ, the State Department, refugee policy, etc., etc. Obama, weaponized the entire American government against its own citizens and targeted political opponents.
The former national security adviser — THE FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER — uses the national intelligence system to spy on political opponents. And the top Mainstream Media news agencies — CBS, CNN, ABC and NBC — just don’t think it’s worth reporting as front-page news.
If Trump accomplishes nothing else, he deserves praise for exposing all of this!
The Healthcare Bill’s failure is just part of the ‘Art Of The Deal’.
Trump is playing 4D chess and is way ahead of them.
Congressman Thomas Massie Is BLOWING THE WHISTLE on the Establishment. They are funding Ad’s against Conservatives who oppose ObamaCare 2.0 (RINO-CARE).
DRAIN THE SWAMP!
Trump’s balls are contagious!
Want to know how the swamp works? According to the Washington Post, American Action Network (AAN) is running ads against conservatives who haven’t agreed to vote for Obamacare 2.0. AAN is associated with Boehner, Cantor, current members of GOP leadership, and DC lobbyists. But who has regularly donated to AAN? Pharmaceutical Manufacturers.
If you think Obamacare 2.0 is going to lower drug costs, guess again. Here are the links where you can verify these and other facts.
I’m blowing the whistle at my own peril but it’s time to #draintheswamp. Please share if you agree.
The VA Health System is a tragic warning against Government-Run Health Care!
Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell… are they members of D.C.’s Corrupt Bastards Club?
They told us in 2010, 2012, 2014, that they couldn’t do what we wanted them to do without Republican majorities in the House and Senate.
We delivered. They did NOT!
DRAIN THE SWAMP!
THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS CONGRESS
Let’s compare what President Trump has accomplished since the inauguration (with that enormous crowd!) with what congressional Republicans have done.
In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat Boeing into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, imposed a terrorist travel ban, met with foreign leaders and nominated a Supreme Court justice, among many other things.
(And still our hero finds time to torment the media with his tweets!)
What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking?
More than 90 percent of congressional Republicans kept their jobs after the 2016 election, so you can cross “staffing an entire branch of government” off the list. Only the Senate confirms nominees, which they’ve been doing at a snail’s pace, so they’ve got loads of free time — and the House has no excuse at all.
Where’s the Obamacare repeal? Where are the hearings featuring middle-class Americans with no health insurance because it was made illegal by Obamacare?
The House passed six Obamacare repeals when Obama was president and there was no chance of them being signed into law. Back then, Republicans were full of vim and vigor! But the moment Trump became president, the repeals came to a screeching halt.
After the inauguration (gigantic!), House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put out a plan for repealing Obamacare … in 200 days. They actually gave their legislative agenda this inspiring title: “The Two Hundred Day Plan.”
TWO HUNDRED DAYS!
What was in the last six Obamacare repeals? If we looked, would we find “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” carefully typed out 1 million times? Seriously, what does Paul Ryan’s day look like?
This is the Silence of the Lambs Congress. They’re utterly silent, emerging from the House gym or their three-hour lunches only to scream to the press about Trump.
To the delight of the media, these frightened little lambs are appalled by nearly everything Trump does. They’ve been especially throaty about Trump’s temporary travel ban from seven terrorist nations — as designated by the Obama administration (and by everybody else who hasn’t been in a deep freeze in a Finnish crevasse for the past decade).
Just like the six Obamacare repeals, a refugee ban was already written and passed by one house of Congress. Then suddenly: the Silence of the Lambs. McConnell and Ryan are hiding under their desks, as Trump is being attacked from every side.
Way, way back, 15 long months ago, congressional Republicans didn’t have a problem with a total ban on Syrian and Iraqi refugees. Not for a mere three months like Trump’s order — but permanently, unless the director of the FBI, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and the director of national intelligence personally certified that a particular refugee posed no danger to the U.S.
That bill passed the House with an overwhelming, veto-proof majority, including 47 Democrats. Then it went to the Senate to die.
But when President Trump imposed a comparatively mild three-month ban on immigrants from Syria, Iraq and five other terrorist nations, the same Republicans who had voted for a limitless ban on refugees whiled away their days calling reporters to denounce Trump.
A little more than a year ago, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, bragged in a press release that he had introduced the House’s refugee ban, calling it a bill that would “protect Americans from ISIS.”
But when it came to Trump’s three-month pause, McCaul told the Post that Trump’s order “went too far.”
I guess that ISIS problem just sort of faded away. (Or maybe we should check with Mrs. McCaul, inasmuch as it’s her family money that makes Rep. McCaul one of the richest members of Congress.)
Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., who voted for the House’s permanent refugee ban, demanded that Trump immediately rescind his travel ban, babbling on about the “many, many nuances of immigration policy” — which he must have learned about on one of his congressional jaunts to a Las Vegas casino.
Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., said that Trump’s order “overreaches and undermines our constitutional system.” Evidently, he was suddenly struck by the realization that it’s “not lawful to ban immigrants on the basis of nationality,” despite having voted to ban refugees on the basis of nationality just 15 months earlier. (I’m OK with this, provided the Syrians, Somalis and Yemenis are sent to live on Justin’s street after being told about his support for gay marriage.)
Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Ben Sasse, R-Neb., both rushed to The Washington Post with this refreshingly original point: NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS! Why, thank you, senators! Where would the GOP be without you?
The Post also quoted spokesmen — spokesmen! — for Republican Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Rob Portman of Ohio and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina complaining about not having been briefed on Trump’s order. The senators themselves were far too busy to talk to the press because they were — wait, what were they doing again? Words With Friends? Decoupage?
Since the election, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., has been mostly occupied polishing his anti-Trump quotations to get a pat on the head from an admiring media. He complained about Trump’s order, saying it was “poorly implemented” and that he had to find out about it from reporters. (I wonder why.)
This is the moment we’ve been waiting for our entire lives, but Republicans in Congress refuse to do the people’s will. Their sole, driving obsession is to see Trump fail.
I am not presently calling for these useless, narcissistic, Trump-bashing Republicans to be defeated in their re-election bids, but they’re on my Watch List. To be cleared, they can start by getting off the phone with The Washington Post and passing one of those six Obamacare repeal bills.
A new Government program provides FREE GAS CARDS to Welfare Recipients.
I don’t know if this is true but it is very believable.
First it was Obama Care, Obama Phones, Obama Weed and now Obama Gas. Yes, you heard that right. The White House has quietly used a provision in the law to roll out a nationwide program of free gas for the poor. According to The Detroit News, the Obama administration is using its authority under the Affordable Care Act to “improve transportation routes to hospitals”. This would make it possible for welfare recipients to receive these preloaded gas cards.
This is a $2 billion a year program that will distribute 40 million gallons of gasoline for FREE each year. It will be dispensed at any gas station that participates in the program by accepting this form of payment. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will be operating the network. Over 3,000 gas stations in 38 states have been approved to accept this payment in their stores.
Dori Salcido, assistant DHHS Sec. for Public Affairs explained, “It is not something we are publicizing very much, for obvious reasons. But under the law we are well within our rights to offer this service and we think it’s good public policy. How are people supposed to get to the doctors office if they don’t have gas in their cars? Health insurance is worthless if you can’t make it to your appointments. This is just another fine example of government stepping in and solving big problems.”
This type of program has worked well in oil-rich nations like Venezuela and Indonesia where they subsidize gas for the poor. However, this practice has never been tried here in the United States. This is causing much controversy with some taxpayers who are upset to see their money subsidizing others. One taxpayer, Ross Blake, shared his thoughts, “So basically I’m being punished for not living in the ghetto. I have three kids and a mortgage. Life isn’t cheap for me either. I could use some free gasoline too.” A person like Blake will unlikely be able to use this service.
“Access to this gas card is determined by income,” says Ebony Jackson, a caseworker at he Department of Health and Human Services. “If you are receiving food stamps or cash assistance from the government, you will be approved. All you need to do is apply. The card will supply anywhere from $50 per month to $150 per month in free gas depending on the individual’s income. If they have no income, benefits will max out at $250 per month. This will help the unemployed person go to and from job interviews.”
The gas card scandal was uncovered by Nolan Finley, a conservative Detroit News columnist widely known for his groundbreaking exposé on Obama Phones. Finley says, “There is a blatant economical bias in the program and that is only one of its many outrageous aspects. The President is only trying to increase his popularity. This is something you normally only see in Third World countries. I’ve never been more scared for our democracy.”
