GOP Nervous About Future of Health Care Bill


May 6, 2017 By Taegan Goddard

A top Republican emails Mike Allen: “I think the reality of the Senate process is setting in.”

“The legislation is likely to take a month or two to wend through the Senate. And Republicans are queasy about getting the likely result back through the House, then to President Trump’s desk.”

Playbook: “We’ve been talking to top House Republicans about the politics of this plan. Put plainly, there is a lot of concern. The politics around the AHCA are very tricky for the GOP. Many very senior Republicans were extremely unhappy with the celebration in the Rose Garden. The optics, they say, were horrendous. Of course, Republicans say they’ll be able to sell this plan to their constituents. They have promised their base that they would repeal Obamacare, and this makes good on that promise, they say. Midterms are base elections, and this could energize core GOP voters.”

1. It is just the opposite...the time for repeal was if Romney was elected...so the GOP misread the

electorate and will pay a price...I hate and despise everyone of them.

2. Now that more people understand Obamacare is really ACA?

Will it energize their base. They energized their base by lying to them. However the reality of losing healthcare is winding its way in to public consciousness.

It may energize voters but not in the way they think. Or at least I hope it will and we can rid ourselves of these evil corrupt people.

3. Unhack the fucking vote or Dems will not stand a chance.

The voting system needs serious reform, and a way to double check. Everyone should have access to being able to vote, and not be suppressed from doing that.

The time to address this is NOW, not down the road.
