Sen. Rand Paul on Friday said conservatives are being told to “take it or leave it” when it comes to the emerging House GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, setting up a major clash with leaders hoping to mark up legislation as soon as next week.
Republicans are trying to repeal and replace as much of the Affordable Care Act as they can under a fast-track budget process that allows them to avoid a Democratic filibuster.
Leaders have outlined a three-week timetable to get the legislation over to the Senate, where it must meet arcane budget rules and gather consensus among Republicans who hold a 52-seat majority.
Yet a trio of Senate conservatives — Mr. Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah — have objected to the House GOP approach, on top of centrists who are worried about unwinding Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid for the poor or defunding Planned Parenthood over its abortion practice as part of the draft plan.
Now you are talking my language. "Remove the road block to Trump's make America Great Again Agenda." We cannot allow that our great leader Trump faces any roadblocks. Thanks for joining me in proclaiming that Trump needs to indeed reign supreme! Any opposition or dissent needs to be removed immediately and permanently. A big thanks to you, my friend!
Exactly correct! (G)OP "leadership" at it again!
Get government out of the health industry mandate business. Government will skrew it up even worst if given half a chance. Allow Capitalism to govern prices and rewards. The people are not as stupid as those in government that just want power over them.
The only solution... if the politicians' goal is a solution!
No G-Dam replacement No Gov. i my life or my health care. create a free and open market and get ride of state lines and allow them to compeat for the peoples busniess
stalling until it dies a natural death aint all that bad an idea at this point. it doesn't work. its not designed to work. its only designed to grab the congress by the throat and FORCE them to design another replacement fiasco . we dont need this. the destruction of our govt is what communists seek. just say NO MORE and wide open REPEAL it
Yeah....I think if they let it continue for a while longer so it can continue IMPLODING....it's going to be really hard to continue to call it the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT
Colonoscopy with a bent fork? We could retire wealthy Frank....selling tickets for people who want to perform this procedure on him ;o))))
The TEA Party needs to keep up the pressure on the White House... at least the new President is predisposed to listen to us, unlike the prior occupant...
Please use these two short links to go to web form Action Items where you can make your voice heard, directly to the White House and your reps in Congress:
1. Tell Trump No Vax Mandates: http://tinyurl.com/vaccinepolicy
2. Support Sen. Hatch's HSA bill, to include access to dietary supplements and natural remedies; this would be a game-changer! http://tinyurl.com/naturalremedieshsa
If we speak up, Congress and the President will listen!
Which creep is "telling them" that?? And, BTW, WE DON'T WANT A REPLACEMENT! Leave the free market the hell alone!
I would heed his warning. Since Paul Ryan will do what he wants. The people want a repeal and Rand thinks he won't do it. So all eyes on this.
