President Obama will huddle with House and Senate Democrats on Wednesday to discuss their fight against Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare in the new Congress.

The meeting will take place in the Capitol Visitor Center’s auditorium and last for about an hour, according to a congressional aide.

Stung by a November election that handed Republicans the keys to health reform, Democrats are brainstorming ways to push back against GOP plans to use a fast-track budget tool to gut the Affordable Care Act in the first months of the new Congress.

Sen. Bernard Sanders, Vermont independent, and Democratic congressional leaders have called for nationwide rallies during a “day of action” on Jan. 15 to decry the repeal and potential plans to replace Medicare’s open-ended entitlement for seniors with a premium-support model favored by Speaker Paul D. Ryan.

White House guidance provided to Congress said Mr. Obama will thank Democrats during the meeting — first reported by Politico — for helping him drive the uninsured rate to historic lows. He will also discuss ways to strengthen the law.

Bernie Sanders, Democrats call for rallies to protest GOP health plans

‘Day of Action’ would coincide with MLK Day, early action in Congress

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Sen. Bernard Sanders and Democratic leaders on Wednesday called for nationwide rallies as part of a “day of action” this month to protest GOP plans to dismantle Obamacare and revamp the Medicare program for seniors.

Mr. Sanders, the Vermont independent who emerged as a progressive hero during the 2016 campaign, warned in a “dear colleague” letter that Republicans in charge of both chambers will use a fast-track budget tool to gut the Affordable Care Act, imperiling coverage for millions.

He also said the GOP could pursue a “voucherlike” system for Medicare, a nod to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan’s longstanding plan to replace the program’s open-ended entitlement with a “premium-support” model.

The letter pinpoints Sunday, Jan. 15 — the day before Martin Luther King Day — as a day to publicly resist the GOP’s ideas.

“Rallies will be held around the country to vigorously oppose the Republican plan to end Medicare as we know it and throw our health care system into chaos,” Mr. Sanders wrote, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and incoming Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of New York.


This is the same old game plan that cost the dem's to loose elections all a cross America for the last eight years, they cant understand that America will never be in favor of a Socialist rule and no matter how big of a mess they make Americans will know that they are to blame and become even more insignificant then they are now !

Bernie is a very sick individual to take such a stand.

He can rally his ilk all he wants.

The people have spoken -- we do not want the barryscare program the democraps single handedly shoved down our throats.

They truly are tone deaf in every way.

The GOP has the House, the Senate, along with a strong Republican president that has an aggressive mandate to implement for the people. He won this election based of that very fact. There should be absolutely NO excuses. Period! We cannot allow these anti-American Socialists to go on with protecting the unconstitutional debacle known as Obamacare.

The Trump administration mustn't stop with that ridiculous law either. Let the DEMs scream and rant all they want. They've been legally neutered and we must let them know that wonderful fact every day, through the non-stop reversals of their ideological driven agenda.

Remember, we've endured eight miserable years of Obama running unchecked, with no real hope in sight.

Now is the perfect time, with unprecedented power, to correct every single policy that has caused millions of Americans enormous damage and NEVER look back. This precious period of time may never happen again and it must not be squandered over personal feelings regarding a selfish legacy. Obama governed against the will of the people and now it's payback time. Obama, How does it feel to be irrelevant? 

Screw Obama and his destructive Marxist legacy!

Dont underestimate the underhandedness of these low-life bums,Communists and IslamoFascists.

OScumBag is building his private army.  Oil your weapons.

Vicious, evil, vile.  He hates America and the dem/socialist/communists who agree with him are no better.

Pres Obama can now go back to the job he has experience in "COMMUNITY ORGANIZER"  funded by George Soros.

Bernie is the perfect figure head of the progressive"communist" party. Thank God the people woke up to the hijacking of our nation. Repeal and replace. My premium was raised 150 percent. I had to search for affordable insurance on my own. I wouldn't take a tax credit if I was starving.

The American Action Forum finds that the cost of 2016 benchmark Silver plans will increase by an average of 27 percent in 2017 for a 27-year-old non-smoker. While the lowest cost Bronze plan will increase by 22 percent in 2017.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
