Now THIS is something I can get behind!
Mitch McConnell, who I rarely agree with on anything, just announced that “Repeal and Replace” is dead in the Senate. Under his dreadful leadership, he can’t put together a deal.
By the way, have you noticed how President Trump has really kept his distance from this whole thing, preferring to let them duke it out in Congress? My theory is that he is letting them fail miserably several times and then he will swoop in and cut a killer deal once Obamacare has totally failed. The Art of the Deal in action folks! Trump is playing chess while everyone else plays checkers.
But now a new development just turned up. With Repeal and Replace dead, McConnell is now calling for a vote just on Repeal. Come on folks, that’s something all republicans should be able to agree on, right? Repeal the mess of Obamacare! Any republicans who don’t vote for this will expose themselves for the gross RINOs that they are!
The McConnell plan calls for a Repeal now and then a two year period to implement something better.
I still think ultimately even this will fail and RINOs will vote against it. But in the long run, I believe it all falls perfectly into Trump’s plan. If the Congressional Republicans can’t even get this done, our President will swoop in to pick up the pieces and cut a glorious deal that we will all be very proud of. Watch!
From the NY Post:
Declaring defeat in the current effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday night that his chamber will vote to completely repeal President Barack Obama’s health care program — with a two-year delay to come up with a replacement.
“Regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of ObamaCare will not be successful,” McConnell said in a statement.
McConnell wants the Senate to vote on a 2015 bill that passed both chambers and was vetoed by Obama.
The two-year delay would “provide for a stable transition period to a patient-centered health care system,” McConnell said.
