President Trump Is Calling for Complete Repeal After Talking with Rand Paul

This is the tweet we’ve been waiting for but will congress go along with it? President Trump is calling for two bills on Obamacare, one a repeal and the other a replacement.

A complete repeal of Obamacare, every word of it, to be followed quickly by fixes of the healthcare system, is what was promised.

Republicans have been looking to basically fix Obamacare with a partial repeal. It’s not what people on the right wanted to hear.  The right-wing expected taxes eliminated, regulations abolished, tort reform and competition across state lines.

No matter what bill they come up with, it’s bound to make a faction within the Republican Party unhappy. And, there is no way Democrats will vote for anything less than some fixes until it collapses, paving the way for single-payer.

Any bill Republicans come up with will be inferior, better than Obamacare, but not great. It will be labeled Trumpcare and Republicans will be saddled with it. The Democrats will blame Republicans for their horrendous bill.

President Trump’s tweet followed a meeting with Rand Paul who has the solution most on the right would cheer.

Paul’s idea is to break the bill into two. First repeal and then replace. Paul suggests that we put whatever money into Medicaid necessary and make accommodations for the pre-existing conditions.

“So what I’ve come up with and I talked to the president yesterday about this is what about dividing the bill in two? Do the repeal, which no Democrat will vote for. Repeal the taxes, repeal the regulations, and do a fix to Medicaid that helps to pay for everything.”

“No Democrats will vote for anything good like that. But Democrats will always vote for spending. So the big government Republicans that want more spending, take the spending and put it in the bill that Democrats will vote for.”

  1. This is the very definition of a bi-partisan solution – giving the Dems an opportunity to bargain on the replacement medical system while getting rid of the worst piece of legislation since the TARP bailouts. Of course just as the “palastians” don’t really want their own country, so too the Democrats don’t want compromise of any kind – ever. At this point the Republicans should stop caring what the liberals think and just do what most Americans elected them to do. Let’s be honest: is there a Democrat alive today who gives a damn what the other side believes? No, so why should the right keep taking the high road when their opposition is LITERALLY advocating civil war and has full control of a phony media? F’ em all…get the job done, make it nigh impossible to UN-do and then let history be the judge. After all, that’s what liberals always do!

  2. Rand Paul is exactly right. REPEAL this disaster. Then let the markets do their job. We had a good plan BEFORE “o”bamacare. Government needs to get OUT of the health care industry. Semper Fi
