Trump/Ryancare Bill pulled…No Vote….

Sensing  that Republicans did NOT HAVE THE VOTES and not wanting to throw GOP House members to dogs in next years Midterm elections,,,,

Trump has asked Speaker Ryan to NOT  do a vote that would  be politically hurtful…

Donald Trump losses another ‘deal’….

Immigration was the first one….

The Republicans  have spend years knocking Obamacare

They now have taken a hit and do not know WTF to do

Barack Obama has to be smiling

The Republicans have made the program more popular THEMSELVES….

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

“We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview.

In a news conference shortly after the decision, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) conceded that his party “came up short.”

The decision came a day after Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and Ryan.

“I don’t blame Paul,” Trump said, referring to Ryan….

  1. The reason the GOP failed to pass anything is the same reason Trump became the nominee.

    Their dysfunctional.

    He blew by 16 other candidates because they could not unite behind anyone of them.

    It’s the same reason he is President but that is dysfunctionalism of a different sort.

    The bill never would have made it out of the Senate.

    Now comes tax reform.

    We shall see.

    1. What will Trump Do?

      HHS Sec Tom Price offering few hints on whether Trump admin will try to make ACA run smoothly or go Samson and destroy the insurance market

  2. I think the best moment of Ryan’s talk during this whole thing was that he said the Republican Party now needs to learn how to govern, because the last 6 years we were just against everything…Seeing him be that honest was pretty interesting.

  3. Once the Supreme Court seat is filled (By nuclear option of course) he will get a fair hearing.

    Just because someone is considered by some hypocrits to be a bigot does not mean he has bad ideas.

    1. It’s Trump that Trump CAN do policy changes thru HHS Sec Price….

      He probably shouldn’t change things too much
      Might land him in court like with immigration
      Doing that would bring protests and problems to lawmakers that he needs on his side for other stuff,…

  4. They didn’t hear me screaming my no vote from suburban Chicago, but I note that Scott was kind enough to mention it for me at the time.

  5. “Certified Republican”

    He was the nominee of the Republican Party.

    Can’t get more “certified” than that!

  6. When they asked Trump about his healthcare plan in the campaign, he said it would be “something terrific” and a bunch of idiots put on red hats and thought they could believe him.

    Now he quits. He’s either a complete con-man or an agent of the Democrats. Maybe both.

  7. Trump is praising the Tuesday Group and attacking the Freedom Caucus now.

    Yet, his “no compromise with libruls” fans will continue to stand by him in spite of the complete illogical nature of doing so.

    Paul Ryan with be the patsy, and they will try to force him out, because it’s something that Trumpists and Democrats will find they can agree with each other on.

  8. My boss is not yet ready to meet with me so here I am briefly..

    Trump ensuring that Obamacare remains the law of the law for the forseeable future certainly gives credence to my theory that he was a Democrat plant.

    This all worked out perfectly for you guys!

    Trump’s loyalists in the “base”, who ironically wanted the bill voted down (very interesting) are going to turn all their fire on Paul Ryan. While Ryan does look very bad after this, why should he get most of the blame?

    Trump said “he alone” could fix anything.

    It’s going to be a rough ride for the stock market in the short term.

    1. Darn CG!
      You are taking my talking points!
      I have pointed out that Trump ‘adopted ‘ the Grand Ole Party to get an address change!

  9. Trump is a choker. I don’t know how anybody can ever take his bravado seriously after this.

    Mitt Romney, who had a full percent higher of the national vote share in 2012, would have gotten Obamacare repealed and replaced and the bill would not have been incredibly unpopular and it would have improved the lives of a lot of people.

    Trump should just quit today and go back to his Tower and let Mike Pence have a shot of at least trying to be a President.

    1. Lot of us have been pointing out Trump ‘s MO

      People just focus on the Style

      Not the lack of substance

      Trump will fly down to Florida for some R & R….

      Ryan has a mess to clean up

  10. I am going to sound like “jack” for a second here, but every single conservative leaning voter who supported Donald Trump in the primaries or who later on rationalized to themselves that he would be able to get things done if somehow put in office ought to feel like a DAMN FOOL.

  11. So, Trump is a quitter and a fraud. Who knew? It was pulled at his request. I guess he didn’t want to have to have people vote against him and he doesn’t intend to “go after” them.

    Complete dysfunction. But this is a perfect representation of the unholy alliance of those who believed in Donald Trump and the dangerous Tea Partyish Freedom Caucus who insist on purity. Paul Ryan, whom I have admired, looks very weak after all this too. When he got into bed with Donald Trump, whatever his reason might have been, he should have expected this though.

    For the sake of the country and the rights of Americans to have a better health care system than we currently have, I hope everyone pitches in to try to come up with something better. If Obamacare cannot be fully repealed, then there should be lots of ways to try to fix it.

    The Republican leadership ought to be willing to try something else and Democrats need to be willing to not just be obstructionist but to try to work with them to at least fix Obamacare. The Freedom Caucus may oppose anything, but there ought to be enough votes to come to several compromises.

    Maybe a future President will be less toxic and less dysfunctional for long-term sustainable conservative reforms. DJT is not that person. He ought to just shut up and stay out of the debates and let the grownups try to salvage some sort of deal.
