Trump Attacks Rand Paul On Obamacare Repeal

Politico reports:

Libertarian-leaning Sen. Rand Paul is “such a negative force” on Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning amid a final GOP push to overhaul the nation’s healthcare system.

Senate Republicans have restarted in recent days their stalled efforts to undo former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare legislation, throwing support behind a bill authored by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would block grant money currently spent on Obamacare to the states.

Republicans have only until the end of September to pass the bill via a Senate procedure called reconciliation, which would allow the GOP to approve the legislation with as few as 50 votes instead of the usual 60.

    “Graham-Cassidy Bill is GREAT! Ends Ocare!” – says it all. In Trump’s addled brain, actual consequences are irrelevant and simply collateral damage. Its all about damaging the legacy of the black guy who made fun of him at the Correspondent’s Dinner.

    This sounds like orchestrated theater to suggest that the Republicans aren’t all thrilled with this, so it must be a compromise, and therefore it’s not that extreme, and it must be not that bad.

    amid a final GOP push

    Let me know when we get to the final final final final final push.
    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

    • billbear1961

      I know–it’s always the FINAL push, until their next GODDAMNED attempt!

      I’m so SICK of this relentless evil SHIT!

      Christ, how I hate these evil, lying, murderous BASTARDS!

      If they vote for this, this country better see some of the largest and most relentless PROTESTS in its HISTORY–until they reverse themselves!!

      This bill is cold-blooded MURDER–there is NO excuse for it–NONE!!

      It is depraved EVIL!!

      • kanehau

        It’s their final push because they soon lose the 50 vote minimum and it goes to 60 – and they know they won’t get shit past if that happens (and it happens on Sept. 30).

          …assuming McConnel doesn’t turtlefvck the rules somemore.

          For the year but next year they’ll try again

  • Sam_Handwich

    has the CBO scored this piece of shit yet? i can’t imagine it’ll come out any better than the previous proposals

    • Ernest Endevor

      No. And there won’t be time before a vote. They don’t care. They need to pass tis so they can claim that further tax cuts for millionaires are ‘deficit neutral’.

    • fkevin

      No, it has not been scored. It was never reviewed or debated outside of closed door committee either. Supposidly, the CBO is fast tracking a limited review for next week.

    I guess I’m behind on my Capitol Hill lingo. Ocare? O brother. : )

    Why do I believe this is all staged?

    • billbear1961

      Because it is?

  • David Walker

    I guess you could define “overhaul” as “completely gut,” “kill program and people,” “destroy any remaining respect one had for one’s government,” or “you’re paying my insurance, so fuck you.”

    • billbear1961

      Politico SUCKS!

      They consider white supremacism a “partisan issue,” but won’t place quotation marks around “overhaul.”

      • The_Wretched

        Politico serves just 1 function – it shows what the ‘beltway wisdom’ is.

    One of the groups which will be hardest hit when this passes are poor men on HIV medication.
    So glad all you gay men stayed home or voted ‘Green’ to teach those of us gay men who vote for the Democrats a lesson. So very, very glad. Hope you’re proud of yourselves, you’ve just taken a large number of your brothers back to the mid-80s.
    I wouldn’t wish Aids on anyone, not even you, but boy, if anyone deserved to face the disease without help….

  • Rex

    Really all this is about is removing the first black president’s name from healthcare. If it kills a few thousand people, no big deal.

    • Todd20036

      Few million….

    • billbear1961

      It will kill tens of thousands a year, and millions, including CHILDREN, will suffer for no remotely defensible reason, whatsoever!

      There is NO excuse for this depravity–NONE!!

      We were so close to having a great sequel to Obama.

    • Goodboy

      What a wimp speech. I would’ve said Canada is the greatest most powerful country on earth that you should fear or will destroy you.

  • Todd20036

    The mere fact that they’re trying to ram this through without any input or committees or amendments from the democrats.
    As much as the Nazis like to claim, republicans were able to hold hearings and add amendments to Obamacare over a course of months.
    The democrats did not try to force legislation through under cover of darkness like the Nazis are doing.
    And the really sad thing is that Graham was supposedly one of the few moderates left. We all know where that went.

    • BudClark

      … up Miss Lindseybelle’s pure white ass …

  • This is even worse than the last bill and this one might actually pass. I’m hearing that the phones are not ringing in the senator’s offices not even the so-called moderate ones. 🙁

    • Goodboy

      The public is getting worn down by it.

      • Indeed we are. And we’re not even a year in. Our exhaustion is what they are counting on. The outrage subsides and the protests diminish and they ram through their horrid agenda.

  • greenmanTN

    It’s obvious that he doesn’t have a single fucking clue what’s in this bill, he just wants to “win.”

    He reminds me of the guys you see at a carnival who will spend $50 at the shooting gallery to win a prize that costs 50 cents and will fall apart before you get it home.

    • lattebud

      But walks around proudly displaying it for several hours and embellishes the story how he won it.

    And they want to have you believe that burning down the house is the only way to repair the house! The pure deception is breath taking. The sooner they burn it down the better for them in their reality.

    What a surprise, they’re both lying.

  • Richard B

    By now, you would think the American public knows these soulless malevolent Republican soldiers don’t give a crap about making sure 30 million poor people have access to quality healthcare. The focus of their mission is to kill Obamacare to fund a trillion dollar tax cut for the top 2%.

  • BudClark

    If this bill passes, I will die in the streets in short order. So will countless thousands. That’s what they want … so they can give more money to their plutocrat Nazi 1% friends.
