Paul Ryan is counting votes as House Republicans lobby their leadership for changes to the healthcare bill. The GOP bill is still not a “sure thing” as every Democrat has promised to vote against it, and many of the most conservative members of Congress feel they cannot vote for it. So, can Steve Bannon save the bill from an ignominious defeat?
President Trump and the bill’s supporters in Congress are working overtime to convince conservatives that they can support this bill. Meanwhile, even those who don’t like the bill recognize that repealing Obamacare could reduce the federal deficit by as much as $1 TRILLION over the next ten years!
The sleeping Giants of the Obamacare debate are the Republican moderates in the House. It is because of this faction of the GOP that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) says he CANNOT just repeal Obamacare.
Peggy Noonan at the Wall Street Journal argues that for healthcare reform to succeed, President Trump has to reach across the aisle and make some concessions to the Democrats. The only problem with Noonan’s thesis is that the Democrats already have most of what they want with Obamacare. If Trump wants to get the Democrats to the negotiating table… he has to repeal Obamacare first.
Judge (and hopefully soon, Justice) Neil Gorsuch may be an even stauncher defender of the First Amendment and freedom of religion than Justice Scalia was!
If there is anything good that has come from all of these liberal tantrums it’s that liberals have started arguing for MORE federalism and states rights! Will wonders never cease?
The man who recently jumped the White House fence was on the grounds for a full 15 minutes before he was caught by the Secret Service. That is what we call a security failure.
More Secret Service failure: a laptop holding the floor plans for Trump Tower, and information about Hillary Clintons email investigation were stolen from a Secret Service agent this week.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is still arguing that she did everything right and that it was her viewers who get everything all wrong.
Lockheed Martin just finished a new battle laser for the U.S. military!
