The 'revised' Health Bill has failed, the word "Loyalty" is being tossed about. Government loyal to the People, is key!
Chatter of the day...Healthcare...and the 30+ that stood against ObamaCare Part II.
Trump calling out Conservatives; namely the Freedom Caucus.
Chief of Staff Reince Priebus stating, "The President is disappointed with the amount of people that he thought were loyal to him, that weren't".
Isn't it always supposed to be about the Government being loyal to the People?
Which comes first?
Loyalty to Political Parties?
My way/Her way/His way or the Highway Antics?
Of course not, it must always be about the People first.
I was one of the reluctant hold-outs, butting heads, engaging in some always passionate, sometimes fiery discussions, realizing early on that it wasn't going to happen, we were not going to get a Reagan Conservative into the office of the Presidency......not this go-round!
Bucking, all while understanding Trump, all while understanding why his message resonated with the People. Trump was telling it like it was, no holds barred, in D.C.'s face, with a let's get it done philosophy!
He is still out and about with the rallies, igniting the crowds with reminders of all he has been able to accomplish and all of the accomplishments he is yet to achieve.
Yes, by all means, let's drain the swamp, build the wall, make America great again, but let's not rush through a healthcare Bill, for the sake of rushing through a healthcare Bill!
With this 'revised' Bill, a Mandate still exists; buy or be fined. Why would I have a huge problem with that in the beginning and not have a huge problem with it today? Because the Republicans are in charge and tell me that I shouldn't have a problem with it now, I need to get with the program?
What am I missing here? I, apparently, just don't get this Game called Playing Politics.
I'm still finding myself, to this day...defending Trump, when old News is brought up...old accusations, old truths... that there is no denying he was party to. I defend, because it is time to move on, the election is over and we need to get behind him and support him. So many are still in denial of the election and yet the fact remains, deny, deny, and deny, but...he was Elected!
But....I will not defend him, when he or (members of his Team), make demands on Congress, "do this or beware" ultimatums! Been there, done that. Sounds awfully Barackish to me.
We can't let our great enthusiasm about getting our man into Office, deflect us from important matters at hand.
We Stand on Principle or we don't.
There is no leaning toward Principle, there's no gradually working toward it, hoping to get there.
Credibility is lost. At the very least, credibility is questioned and takes some time to get to the point of trusting again.
It doesn't look as if any Credibility has been lost, some questioning is going on. I am questioning, but no great damage has been done, in my opinion. Hopefully, that remains the case throughout this President's Term.
Again, I get the direction this past Election took, we were in a sad state. After all, we had elected an Activist President, twice. (that, I will never get)
Obama excelled at bad-mouthing our Country and at pointing fingers...at groups of us!
We desperately needed change to come and Trump was saying all the right things. I so appreciate his coming into Washington D.C., like a man on fire, getting things done, but I don't agree and can't accept, where blame is being directed today.
Fingers are being pointed and blame is being placed, not on the disaster that is Obamacare, not on the Dems that fell in line with their Party, regardless of how they truly felt about it, no, blame is being placed on those who stood in opposition to a 'Revised' version of the same old disaster.
Blame is being directed at; a not so silent, definitely not falling in line...Minority...Conservatives.
I so admire, having conviction!
I promised the people of North Carolina's 11th District that I would fight for a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act and a replacement with a market-driven approach that brings down costs and provides more choices for the American people, I remain wholeheartedly committed to following through on this promise. I know President Trump is committed to repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a system that works for American families, and I look forward to working with him to do just that.— Mark Meadows
Thoughts on House Republicans that could not support 'revised' Health Bill:
I hope that we can revisit this, when things cool down and All can properly, get back to the People's business.
In the meantime, tax reform, Security, adherence to Immigration Laws, building up the Military and getting a Supreme Court Justice fitted for his new robe and then... on to the Supreme Court, should be front and center.
Democrats have promised to hold up Gorsuch from making it in, for that fitting.
One of our Senators (FL)...the one that did not run for the Presidency this past year, is already using the F word!
They are the best at the Game. There, a compliment from me!
