Feb 27, 2017: Trump says that TrumpCare will be something special, fantastic, released fairly soon

David Corn: "McConnell blamed Dems for not engaging "in a serious way"...

...after forcing vote on major bill two hours after releasing it. What a snowflake."



Stunned McConnell blames Democrats after crucial health care loss

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed "regret" and "disappointment" immediately after the GOP failed to pass a minimalist Obamacare repeal bill early Friday, blaming congressional Democrats for not engaging "in a serious way" in the efforts to remedy the health care law.

"I imagine many of our colleagues on the other side are celebrating, probably pretty happy about this," a stunned seeming McConnell said from the Senate floor. "But the American people are hurting and they need relief."

"I want to thank everybody in this conference for the endless amount of time that they spent trying to achieve a consensus to go forward," McConnell remarked.

"Our friends on the other side decided early on they didn't want to engage with us in a serious way, a serious way to help those suffering under Obamacare," McConnell said.

3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!

Mike Pence, DENIED the orgasmic JOY of banging his tiny little deciding TrumpCare gavel last night

It was floated ALL DAY on TV...that Pence MIGHT be the deciding vote for the "skinny bill," which...in that form...would have thrown 16 million off of healthcare and dramatically raised premiums.

AND HE WAS DENIED.

He had to snuggle into his little Pence bed last night and weep gentle Pence tears while, instead of counting sheep to lull himself into sleep, he counted the 16 million losers who might have fallen under his mighty deciding gavel.

Just before nodding off, he forgave God for disappointing him so bitterly, and blew a gentle kiss across the room to Mommy, who had fallen asleep hours ago. In his prayers, he asked the Lord to impeach President Trump so he could be President (as he does every night), and pleaded with him to smite all of his enemies (basically everyone on the planet except Mommy..."Take your time, Lord, I know you're a busy guy."

Around 3 AM he snuck into the kitchen for two scoops ("If HE can have two scoops, SO CAN I", but left half of the bowl uneaten in the sink. "This delicious frozen dessert tastes like bitter ashes in my mouth," he wept, as he went back to bed.

"A stinging blow to President Donald Trump." He's pouting on the gold toilet as we speak.

In a stinging blow to President Donald Trump, U.S. Senate Republicans failed on Friday to dismantle Obamacare, falling short on a major campaign promise and perhaps ending a seven-year quest by their party to gut the healthcare law.

Voting in the early hours, three Republican senators, John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, crossed party lines to join Democrats in a dramatic 49-to-51 vote to reject a “skinny repeal” bill that would have killed some parts of Obamacare.

“This is clearly a disappointing moment,” Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on an eerily quiet Senate floor right after the vote. “The American people are going to regret that we couldn’t find a better way forward.”

If Sen. Franken on Rachel just now didn't make you boiling mad...

...nothing will.

He talked about what we already know...17% of America supports TrumpCare, and even his "base" knows that they will either lose their healthcare or will pay substantially more for it.

"The exact opposite of what Trump promised on the campaign trail."

He sounded, and appeared to be, tired bordering on exhaustion.

As are we all.

Maybe it won't be Russia that brings Trump down after all.

Maybe it will be this.

Senate sends Russia sanctions to Trump's desk

Source: CNN

(CNN)The Senate on Thursday passed sweeping legislation slapping new sanctions on Russia and rebuking President Donald Trump in a bill that now will head to the President's desk.

The bill, which gives Congress new powers to block Trump from easing sanctions against Moscow, passed the Senate 98-2. It passed the House on Tuesday 419-3.

The measure is one of the first major bipartisan pieces of legislation passed during Trump's presidency, and it effectively ties the hands of the President when it comes to easing Russia sanctions.

The bill also includes new sanctions on Iran and North Korea, and was a product of lengthy negotiations between the House and Senate that devolved into finger-pointing between the two parties and chambers several times before an agreement was finalized.

Hard to tell if he was kidding...he seemed serious. Would be classic if it actually happens. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
