Democrats turned around today and blamed Republicans for not fixing their healthcare mess. A new healthcare plan failed in the Senate but it’s the Democrats who put us in this position.
The second in command of the Democrat Party, Rep. Steny Hoyer was involved in a discussion on CNN today about Trump saying he would let Obamacare fail. Hoyer had the absolute gall to say:
“What he promised the American people was insurance for everybody at lower cost and better quality. His party controls the House, it controls the Senate and it controls the presidency. If it fails to deliver that then the American people ought to hold them accountable.”
This isn’t the best audio clip but hear it for yourself.
What unmitigated gall. The brass, the arrogance, really.
It is the Democrats who lied to Americans about “affordable” healthcare. They swore premiums would go down, abortion would not be funded, all Americans would be covered. They single-handedly destroyed the healthcare system and they did it without any Republicans involved. They wouldn’t allow them to be involved.
Democrats will not do a thing to help now. They are refusing to do their jobs or to engage in any form of governance unless they have a “fixed” Obamacare that is meant to lead to single-payer.
Obamacare is in a death spiral. People can’t afford to use their healthcare insurance because of deductibles. The premiums are unaffordable and choice is basically eliminated.
The Democrats, including the former president and the congressional Democrats, lied to the American people repeatedly about what Obamacare could do. They called it affordable healthcare when it couldn’t possibly be affordable.
Nancy Pelosi ran around telling people we’d all pay less, everyone would be covered, and we’d have better plans. It was absurd, even on its face.
Democrats had a plan that was foiled when Republicans won. Obamacare was supposed to be the bridge to single-payer, but Hillary lost.
Now Republicans are in office and they claim they don’t want single-payer, but is that true?
Democrats created this mess. They couldn’t even set up the website. This baby is theirs.
This is very likely American’s last opportunity to straighten out the corrupt and far-left movement of our government. We are in the hands of a Democrat Party that has moved to the hard-left. They are very radical and want Americans to believe the Republicans are radical.
Liberal Republicans made certain the plan failed
Three women in the senate were not going to vote for anything. Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Shelley Moore Capito had no intention of voting for repeal and replace. They were never going to cut even the growth to Medicaid, no matter how unsustainable it is.
Mitch McConnell is working with the left of the Republican Party and setting up conservatives to take the heat. The reality of what is going on is far different than what they would have us believe.
Leftist Republicans like Collins, Capito and Murkowski want you to think the conservatives are the radicals for wanting to do what was promised and return healthcare to the free market.
Those three – Collins, Capito, Murkowski – will not vote for repeal and replace. That ends it. All three belong in the Democratic Party with John McCain. There are likely others but those three said they would not vote for any of it.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is now saying that we can repeal it and have a two-year delay were we will work out a replacement with “our Democratic friends”. Is he kidding? Schumer is no one’s friend. If he’s your friend, there’s something wrong with you.
Schumer wants to help Republicans said the spider to the fly
Schumer actually said today that Obamacare was “stabilizing” but the Republicans “started sabotaging it”.
Chucky is accusing Republicans of destroying their wonderful plan. In fact, he wants to “fix” Obamacare just long enough for Democrats to get back into office and force us towards single-payer.
Schumer claims there is an open door and it’s “time for our Republican colleagues to walk through it.”
Yes, right to communist healthcare!
Who won the election again?
Schumer is trying to destroy the presidency by separating Congress from the President. You will hear that in the next clip. If Republicans do what Democrats want, they will face incredible backlash.
Trump is frustrated
A very frustrated President Trump spoke about the failed healthcare efforts this morning.
“I am very disappointed because even as a civilian for seven years I’ve been hearing about healthcare and I’ve been hearing about repeal and replace. And Obamacare is a total disaster.”
“I’ve been saying for a long time, let Obamacare fail. It will be a lot easier. And I think we’re probably in that position. We’ll just let Obamacare fail. We’re not going to own it. I’m not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We’ll let Obamacare fail and then the Democrats are going to come to us and are going to say how do we fix it.”
“How do we fix it or how do we come up with a new plan. I am disappointed. For so many years I’ve been hearing repeal and replace. I’m sitting in the Oval Office, right next door, pen in hand, waiting to sign something and I’ll be waiting. And eventually we’ll get something done and it’s going to be very good. But, Obamacare’s a big failure…”
