The 'revised' Health Bill has failed, the word "Loyalty" is being tossed about. Government loyal to the People, is key!

Updated on March 30, 2017

I took an interest in Politics at a young age. The Goldwater-Johnson race fascinated me and I've been paying attention ever since.

"We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution"      - Abraham Lincoln
"We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution" - Abraham Lincoln

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?

(W)ins?

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.

Thoughts on House Republicans that could not support 'revised' Health Bill:

See results

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!

Surprise, Surprise!

They are the best at the Game. There, a compliment from me!

      The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!

      Lumping them with Dems now!

      Someone is going to have to help bring me into the light on this, because too many things are blurry and fuzzy right now. Clarity is quickly being diminished!

      A 'Revised' version of Obamacare is A-OK now because a Republican is in the White House?

      Hi Paula - It's just a privacy thing. My initials really are A.B. and my last name is Williams and this is my real face...lol. My favorite Teacher called me A.B. so it works for me!

      Yes I am familiar with Sanx. I'm always monitoring to make sure things never go too far in 'Comments Section'. I don't know if he or Leslie or a couple of other out-there leftists that have commented here, ever actually read my words or even attempt to process it. Probably not.

      a.b. Really wish I had a "name" to call you....I hate to refer to you by initials.........anyway, you & Greg need to see a perfect example of such pure unadulterated hatred & lack of maturity, that they will even tear apart the first family just for sheer enjoyment. These people are sickos.....Don't need to read the hub, just the comments, to see how LOW this jerk will stoop to attack the children of DT.

      After you see how sick and nasty people can be, a.b....feel free to delete this entire comment. No problem, I'm sure you don't want a link posted in your comments.

      Why the hell doesn't this Sanx get a job or a hobby...or maybe just a life ..and stop trolling his ignorance all over our site? Trolls are disgusting. We just get rid of one and up pops another....they're just like empty-headed puppets.

      Glad that we agree on that part Greg.

      Sanx...you obviously do not understand the role of our Government.

      Their role is to protect....not provide!

      The Government should not even be in the health care business.

      They certainly should not be in the business of Making Demands on me...purchase this product or pay a fine. Fail to pay the fine, go to jail.

      What!?!

      Please point out to me, where in our Bill of Rights or where in our Constitution, it states that your health care and my health care is a Right. While you are searching, where does it state that my Government may force me to purchase a product and then fine me or threaten me with jail time, if I do not comply.

      Feel free to copy and paste.

      We are probably stuck with some form of it, from here on out, but Republicans do not need to have joint ownership of it. That's an 'investment' they can't afford.

      Kudos to those Republicans that agree and stood firm.

      Sorry Sanx....you have failed to make your case!

      They showed their loyalty quite clearly and its up to the American people who they do not represent to remove them. They truly believe that the trillion dollars invested already in health care should be given to big pharma. They truly believe that you do not need health care. They truly believe that you should pay for health care for a policy that covers nothing. I know a few people who believe that most poor people are getting everything for free. Just think that if they have no choice but to pay for health care that it just might motivate a few more of them to get a job. Of course we have a President who thinks its smart not to pay taxes. Then why would he care if he has all you little people paying taxes for him as he gives our money to big corporations. He wants to lower the corporate tax rate because it is the highest in the World. Still you would be challenged to find a single one of these big corporations who even paid half that rate. Why would they when their best sponsors are the Republican party. When the little people stop believing things that will never improve their lives we might get some people who might. Lets hurry up and vote them out and throw the criminals in jail,

      No, I don't believe it should have ever been part of the insurance deal. You shouldn't be fined for not having insurance.

      Thanks for commenting Greg!

      Are you okay with the individual mandate?

      AB, "We the People" aren't represented by our government and haven't been for a very long time. Trump was voted in hoping that he 'might' be able to make some changes. But it looks like we can kiss that hope good-bye when he can't even count on his own party to support what "We the People" want. They are afraid of losing something because Trump was going to 'drain the swamp'. But it looks like his own party has become the quicksand that is going to suck him under because they are all a bunch of COWARDS. Just my opinion.
