Sen. Rand Paul: Been told to ‘take it or leave it’ on Obamacare strategy

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, walks to a room on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, March 2, 2017, where he charges House Republicans are keeping their Obamacare repeal and replace legislation under lock and key and not available for public view. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)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.

Thank you for bringing it back up 

No.....but Dee retired and is not posting anymore. You have to go to the Command Center site for updated stuff. What I am doing.

I sent Steve an email a couple of days after to find out if he was going to replace Dee, but I've never gotten an answer back from him.

Thank you

Please keep us informed once you do hear from Steve

Miss your 'biting' wit and cool pics  :)

Like many....it's up and running, but not really being monitored or articles specifically sent out.  But you're still able to go through all the articles that anyone has posted and comment on them, or post some of your own that you'd like to share.

The Bill is indefensible... and DOA in the Senate.  This whole exercise is deliberate and scored to make it appear as if the GOP attempted to repeal the ACA... The GOP has had 7yrs to draft legislation to assist the private sector and individuals to secure affordable health care and they have not done so. It is as if they want the old and infirm, the disabled and poor to pass away for lack of affordable private health care... options.

America's health care system is broken... The Commonwealth Fund provides a report which compares the U.S. with 10 fully developed industrialized nations: France, Australia, Germany, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Norway, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the U.K. They were all judged to be superior based on various factors. These include quality of care, access to doctors and equity throughout the country. Results of the study rely on data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Health Organization and interviews from physicians and patients.  The US Health Care System ranked 10th out of 10.  See: http://time.com/2888403/u-s-health-care-ranked-worst-in-the-develop...

Both Political Parties in the US have failed to provide a system of health care that is responsive, effective and cost efficient... American's are dying for lack of affordable health care.  It is one thing to say everyone has ACCESS... but access doesn't mean one can afford or fully engage the system. 

Emergency room care is becoming the mainstay medical care for many in our society... However, it is becoming scares and is not an effective way to access comprehensive medical care.  By the time one is sick enough to access emergency care, they are critical and once in the emergency room, they are generally stabilized and released to go home... and die... hardly comprehensive or cost effective care.

Ronald you are more right than you let on... yes, the elite believe the bubble and impending bust they've created can be ameliorated if enough people would just die.

This is the explicit premise of one of Obama's last Executive Orders, the November 4th EO making the "Global Health Security Initiative" into a public policy agenda of the US bureaucracy.

The GHSI is one of those "public/private partnerships" the elite love. It includes all the usual suspects, CDC, WHO, Gates, Ford and etc foundations... plus two proteges of the outgoing Secretary General, social scientists who have published "peer reviewed" articles asserting that the most cost effective way to reduce the cost of pandemics is for there to be less "vectors and victims" -- right, to stop pandemics people need to be dead.

Just that insane... and evil.

Alleged Trump Dossier Source Has Overstated His Business Connections{Click here to read}

" A Belarusian businessman who is said to be the source of the most salacious claims made in the Donald Trump dossier has overstated business ties to at least two major U.S. companies, The Daily Caller can report.

Sergei Millian, who is reportedly cited as “Source E” in the 35-page document, has claimed that his small trade group, the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce (RACC), has struck partnerships with major companies like Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, International Hotel Group and the Trump Organization.

But representatives for Delta Airlines and International Hospitality Group say that Millian has, at best, overstated his working relationships with those companies.

The Trump Organization has also said that Millian has completely fabricated his claims about his work with the company. "

{Bold added by John Barr}

Surprise, surprise... liars, lie... and the MSM take them as their allies... The wicked run with the wicked accusing the just of their own unrighteous conduct.

We Fight Back.

This week, Congress is taking critical votes on TrumpCare, their “plan” to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The same plan that would cause 24 million more people to be uninsured over the next 10 years all so insurance execs and those at the top can get another tax cut.

Fight back.

Starting tomorrow, members of the House will take the next step in passing TrumpCare and stripping health coverage away from millions of Americans. And on March 23rd, the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, the full House of Representatives will vote on the bill. We are ready to fight back to protect our care. Are you?

Here's what you can do:
  1. Share the graphic above!
  1. The White House is looking for ACA stories. Submit your story, then tweet about it.
  1. Join your neighbors this Thursday and Friday, March 16 and 17 at your representative’s office to tell them Trumpcare is wrong for Americans. Find an event near you.
  1. Rally to protect the ACA and the millions whose lives depend on it on March 23 by joining this DC rally or find an event near you at ResistanceNearMe.org.

Thank you!

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
