Labor Leaders, White House Discuss Obamacare Fixes

Pressure to fix the Affordable Care Act was a topic of conversation among top labor leaders and senior White House officials this week, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and Obama aides confirmed Thursday. But those involved have been reluctant to say more.

"We were talking about health care, and we'll continue to talk about health care to try to solve problems," Trumka said during a reporters’ roundtable Thursday.

The AFL leader, along with James Hoffa, head of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and other labor representatives met Tuesday with President Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough. The visitors declined to chat with reporters about the meeting as they exited the West Wing.

“I was just told internally that we have no comment on that,” Teamsters spokesman Galen Monroe told RCP Thursday.

“We’re not going to flesh out anything further beyond what the White House might wish to chance re: health care conversations,” AFL-CIO spokesman Jeff Hauser added in a similar email.

A White House official, speaking on background, told RCP the president did not attend the meeting.

they were reluctant to say what they discussed.

well let me take a guess;

"we could go along with OblunderCare, if we don't have to pay for it, let us know when you get that worked out"

 

Trying to get it fixed for their members? Who do we have speaking for the rest of us out here? Boehner? What do these idiots know about health care. All they want are the members dues to keep coming in.

Best way to fix it is to abolish it.

Sounds like Chicago tactics  go along with me  or I will ruin the unions  forever  Threats to get the union on board for support. 

They are all idiots.

More totally insane CRAP from the REGIME!

Obama probably had a tee time for that day. Of course he didn't attend, he shots off his mouth but leaves it to his comrades to talk with the complainers. does any dough that Obama knows less about Obama care then any one in Washington? He got wound up and sent out to sell the sizzle  not the stake.

Everybody ops out! Except the little people! We get to pay for it! Well FUCK HIM!

More INSIDER plotting and scheming and Political Favoritism going on behind closed doors...Naturally Congress is EXCLUDED...there is simply no end to the Corruption of Obama, his administration and special interest (Unions) friends!!!!!...You can bet that the results of these meetings is that the special interest groups will prosper and the American people will get royally SCREWED !!!!!. Putting OBAMA into office will go down in history as the cancer that destroyed the American Republic!!!!!!!! and the ruination of the American people!!!!!

This sounds like a case of IDIOTS vs. MORONS, I can hear Trumka now. Ya know Obama we bought the election for ya, now ya owe us.

Not a Healthcare bill! An enslavement bill!!

This will destroy America and make us like Canada

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
