Why did it have to come to this situation might I ask? The Republicans took over the House in 2010 and then the House and Senate in 2014 mainly because of the discontent from the American people on Obama Care. Then the excuse by the Republicans was that they couldn’t pass it as long as Obama was president or even if it was Hillary Clinton for that matter. Now you would think all those years of talking about it there would be a plan in the ready to put forth with all the bad conditions taken out of it or remedy’s put into it that would make the new plan popular as hell plus they would have all the expanses associated with the new plan down pat but this wishful thinking could be furthest from the truth. If the republicans screw this up by putting in a bad plan because of a rush job all the gains made in the Congress in 2020 and 2014 could start evaporating.
The following was published by Fox News Politics: “The White House officials said late Thursday President Trump wants the House to vote Friday on the legislation to begin dismantling Obama Care, and if it fails, he is “done with health care,” and ready to move on to tax reform, a source told Fox News.”
“My understanding is he’s going to get it,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said on “The O’Reilly Factor.”
“We’re hoping to make this the last anniversary that any American has to suffer under Obama Care by instilling a patient-centric health care system in place, and the president has made that case to members throughout the spectrum of the Republican conference, and tomorrow, it’s time to vote,” he added.”
Now who do I give the blame to for this fiasco? Why the House Speaker Paul Ryan of course. Ryan has practically made the House chambers his living quarters through the years knowing exactly what it would take to pass certain bills and what it wouldn’t take. I guarantee, you and me can sit down right now and show the items that the American people do not want in Obama Care and what items they want to be included in it to make it work. My understanding with all the campaigning that has been done in regard to Obama Care the American people wanted to take out Obama Care from its roots and put in a new one and that’s exactly what was promised. This did not happen with the Ryan bill. They are scrambling to put this idea in or take that one out all within the present bill. Just today I heard someone say that they are thinking of taking unnecessary coverage’s such as maternity for men out just to give the idea but this has been talked about for years that they have put all the nuts and bolts into one health care system and that’s what has made it all so very expensive and they are only talking about it now at this stage of the game? This is where Ryan comes in, he did not properly make suggestions and expose the new package and he has caused confusion with all the different groups.
President Trump is working so very hard going back and forth from the conservative wing and moderate wing of the Republican party but the problem is he gives an inch to the conservatives and the moderates become unhappy and vice-versa. This is not fair to the president, just a couple of months ago he was a citizen but now he has to do this part because Paul Ryan dropped the ball. So I don’t think Trump’s bluffing that if consensus is not reached today he will move on from the health care bill, or is he! Well we all will find out soon enough wont we.
