Trump Asks Why Congress, Insurance Companies Are Exempt from Obamacare Failings
Breitbart.com ^ | 31 Jul 2017 | Adam Shaw

President Trump took to Twitter Monday to ask why insurance companies and Congress are not being hurt by the failings of Obamacare just as the American people are being hit.

Trump started the day by noting that the unpopular healthcare law is “hurting people” and asked why it isn’t also hurting insurance companies, and also why Congress is exempt.

Trump had previously threatened to end what he called “bailouts” for insurance companies and Congress after the failing of the GOP-led Senate to pass either a healthcare reform bill, a flat-out Obamacare repeal, or a so-called “skinny repeal” of Obamacare.

The vote on a “skinny repeal” failed Friday after three Republicans, Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Susan Collins (R-ME) and John McCain (R-AZ) defected and voted against the measure. The vote failed 49-51.

In the wake of that vote, Trump accused those who voted against the bill of having “let the American people down” and said that it was time to “let Obamacare implode, then deal.”

...

“Don’t give up Republican Senators, the World is watching,” he urged in a tweet on Sunday.

1) Trump has been letting our communist enemies in North Korea know that he’s done talking. He’s about to take action.

2) Trump is letting our communist enemies in Congress know that he’s done talking. He’s about to take action.

Just on Rush’s show:

Repeal and Replace Republicans in Congress. Likewise, I will add the same for the RATs. Repeal and Replace RATs.

In other words, Repeal and Replace Congress. Great new slogan for The Deplorables, ya think? And, a caller suggested that We The People find candidates to run in the primary and find them NOW!!! Hear, hear!! Let’s Roll.

Comments.

Congress is exempt from its own failings.

It has been that way for far far too long.

Insurance companies ??

Because they can and are just leaving the markets.

Bernie wants to punish them with single payer.

What is particularly stinking about this cabal called Congress is they passed a law signed by Obama that allows them to engage in insider trading without consequence.

Every time I think of that I want to throw up.

Because our government is bought and paid for by insiders and leftists in cahoots with their favored crony-capitalists?

Of course he’s right to ask the question.

This is putting more heat on Congress than they’ve experienced in many years. The heat will be felt by Dim and Republican alike.

Because the Insurance Companies will be beating them over the head with dollars at the same time the electorate is burning their offices to the ground.

Simply brilliant politics.

Why isn’t McCain in an endless line waiting with everyone else for an appointment to treat his cancer?

Repeal and Replace Republicans in Congress.

Only those patriots who through their voting records have proven to be rock solid can stay on. All others should be primaried out on their keisters.

Back when ‘HillaryScare’ tanked, part of what did it in was the pushback from the insurers and pharmaceutical industry (e.g. the “Harry and Louise” commercials). The second time around, with Obama and the academic know nothings like Gruber, they wanted to avoid this pushback.

The consequence? They rolled over for the insurers, and made promises to the pharmaceutical industry, all on the backs of the patients and the caregivers. Why? Because those groups didn’t have the money or clout to fight back, AND, there were factions within these groups that could be exploited to further dilute their influence (e.g. the complicity of the AMA and AARP).

So, we wound up with the stupidity of Obamacare, which gives us the cluelessness of the typical academic (like Gruber), the unworkable ‘deals’ with the insurers and pharma, and the ever-growing bureaucracy of anything the government gets involved with. Entirely predictable, and tragically damaging.

All this political corruption and the stench associated with it has got to be exposed!! Special thanks to James O’Keele, Jay Sekulow, Sara Carter at Circa News, and others for investigating and exposing the bottom feeders and traitors in Congress, Deep State, MSM, and elsewhere!

How can the millions of Deplorables help? We The People have got to take our country back. We The People have got to find “honest” patriots to hold office.

Comments and/or suggestions anyone?
