The AHCA has failed.  Trump and Ryan blame the Freedom Caucus for its failure. 

Not counting the Democrat opposition to this bill, there were roughly 15 votes against this bill from the Freedom Caucus.  There were roughly 18 that were not part of the Freedom Caucus.  So why is the Freedom Caucus getting blamed?  Why did the Republicans vote 60 times to repeal Obamacare when they knew it would not get passed a Democrat-controlled Senate and/or a Democrat President yet they did not vote for a simple repeal now?  Why did the House leadership construct a bill without the conservative members of the House? Why were they not allowed to even see it?  Was the defunding of Planned Parenthood permanent, or for a limited time like say one year? 

So why can't Republicans move on, and put forth a clean bill to defund Planned Parenthood?  Why can't Republicans move on, and put forth a clean bill to repeal Obamacare, or put forth a clean bill to purchase insurance across state lines, or put forth a clean bill that would eliminate the mandates, and/or get rid of the subsidies in Obamacare?  Good questions huh?  Are we to believe that Trump and Ryan are too stupid to think of those options?  I don't think they are.  Do you? 

I have heard many try to say that Trump was lied to by Paul Ryan.  The bill was less than 130 pages, was it not?  Did Trump not think a bill that would directly effect the life and/or death of every American, and effect roughly 1/6th of our economy was even worth reading, or even being part of its construction? Any plan that mandates insurance companies to insure those with pre-existing conditions destroys the free market, and will raise insurance premiums for everyone else until they can no longer afford to keep insurance.  This will ultimately lead to the few remaining insurance companies going out of business leaving us with only one option...single payer healthcare.  It works great in Canada, right Trump?

As our healthcare system continues to worsen, insurance companies continue to go out of business, and our debt continues to spiral out of control, Trump at least, is looking at the bright side of things on our behalf.

Don't you feel better already?  Me neither.

They hate conservatism because they can't sell it, and it would limit their power to legislate it.

You hit that nail on the head, Rahth!  

Good questions Rahth. Shared this.

I have a few more questions-

Does anyone else get the impression that all the drama over Obamacare and the replacement of Ocare is nothing more than theatrics?

That the feckless reps just wanted to appear to keep their campaign promises, so they came up with a plan that was assured to fail?

Are the reps & Trump using the loss as an excuse to push single payer, which Trump as well as dems have been in favor of in the past? Or is it just so all concerned, dems & rino's can keep their big money lobbyist happy?

We will likely never get the answer to these questions from our feckless reps. However, one  thing we know is true beyond a shadow of a doubt, is that the of republicans in the republican controlled congress do not represent the ones of us that sent them to Washington D.C.

It's all for show because they think we are all stupid. They thought we would fall for this. Big mistake on their part.  

They think we are stupid because, as a people, we seem hell-bent on proving them right.

Without term limits, there is no incentive to legislate away their power and control.  With term limits, there are more incentives to safeguard themselves from the government they would be leaving behind to control their lives as well as the lives of the rest of us.  Right now, they are the lords operating under the guise of servitude, and we are the subjects operating under the guise that, we the people, are the masters.  Both gerry mandering and no term limits help insure we are the ones who will always be the subjects they control, and not the citizens they serve.

A Constitutional Convention is necessary and term limits are a must for a Fundamental Refounding.  It is number one on the list of Mark Levin's Liberty Amendments:

  1. An Amendment to Establish Term Limits for Members of Congress
  2. An Amendment to Restore the Senate
  3. An Amendment to Establish Term Limits for Supreme Court Justices and Super-Majority Legislative Override
  4. Two Amendments to Limit Federal Spending and Taxing
  5. An Amendment to Limit the Federal Bureaucracy
  6. An Amendment to Promote Free Enterprise
  7. An Amendment to Protect Private Property
  8. An Amendment to Grant the States the Authority to Directly Amend the Constitution
  9. An Amendment to Grant the States the Authority to Check Congress
  10. An Amendment to Protect the Vote

Good read on Levin's book here.

#2.  Just repeal the 17th Amendment.  Then, the states are a part of Congress.

#8.  See #2 above.

#9.  See #2 above.

#10.  Is the vote not protected by the 15th Amendment?

On your question about the 15thA, according to this article...

Section 1 of Levin's amendment "to protect the vote" says:


"Citizens in every state, territory, and the District of Columbia shall produce valid photographic identification documents demonstrating evidence of their citizenship, issued by the state government for the state in which the voter resides, as a requirement for registering to vote and voting in any primary or general election for President, Vice President, and members of Congress."

And Levin on the 17thA:

  • An Amendment to Restore the Senate

SECTION 1: The Seventeenth Amendment is hereby repealed. All Senators shall be chosen by their state legislatures as prescribed by Article 1.

Exactly.  My point is that we don't really need a bunch of new amendments.  Some of the issues can be resolved by repeal of the 17th rather than add 3 new amendments which can only complicate interpretation of the Constitution and its laws.

Is there hope? Time will tell.

Trump takes Rand Paul on a golf outing to discuss healthcare

President Trump brought Republican Sen. Rand Paul to Trump National Golf Club in Virginia on Sunday to play golf with him, a little more than a week after the party's healthcare bill failed.


"They're discussing a variety of topics, including healthcare," White House deputy press secretary Stephanie Grisham said.


Budget director Mick Mulvaney, a former leading House conservative, also joined the two.

Paul had predicted in early March that the House bill would not pass the Senate. Instead, he proposed his own healthcare bill, though it was not taken up by Congress.


After Paul's comments, Trump took to Twitter to put pressure on the senator to support the healthcare bill.

"I feel sure that my friend @RandPaul will come along with the new and great health care program because he knows Obamacare is a disaster!" Trump wrote at the time.

Trump hinted earlier Sunday on Twitter that there's potential for Republicans to unify around healthcare. His tweet followed a week of attacks on the conservative House Freedom Caucus after the failure of the American Health Care Act.

Rand Paul optimistic about Obamacare repeal after golfing with Trump

Republican Sen. Rand Paul was optimistic about repealing Obamacare after he spent the day playing golf with President Trump.

"We had a great day with the president. Played some golf, and we talked and we talked about a little bit of healthcare. I continue to be very optimistic that we are getting closer and closer to an agreement on repealing Obamacare," Paul said.


Budget director Mick Mulvaney, a former leading House conservative, also joined the two on the golf course.
