He Chose… Poorly

No. We’re not even going to pretend to defend/explain that one.

If you truly are planning to fight, fight, fight the only ones who stood on principle when your friend O’Ryan tried to “replace” Obamacare with Obamacare, then we can only conclude that you’re not interested in a second term.

The landslide that carried you into the White House was not built on a deep and abiding desire of the disappearing working and middle class to be forced to line insurance companies’ pocket books and feed the lazy and greedy with our ever decreasing cash reserves.

If you think it was, then you’re quite obviously not the businessman we thought you were. Oh, we knew that you weren’t a rock-ribbed conservative, but we had gotten the impression that at least you were the kind of person who knew which side of the bread the butter could be found on.

You’re on your own with that one.

Here’s a suggestion, though: There already exists a bill that has sailed through both chambers once already, a bill that actually does what you promised you would do, unlike O’Ryan’s shit sandwich, a bill that could be on your desk for signature in a matter of weeks.

Why don’t you try that one?

Thatisall.

Everyone is entitled to make a few mistakes. We have a president who has shown the capability of learning from them and moving on, unlike the the previous bunch of idiots who just doubled down on their mistakes.

Oh yeah, after 18 months of “Funemployment” I start a new job Monday. Not a great job. Pay is half what I made at my last one, and it’s a big step backwards. Still, money coming in instead of just going out.

Exactly. Is this some Clintoonesque triangulation or more playing tridimensional chess against establishmentardians’ checkers? Either way, he must surely know alienating your staunchest allies isn’t a strategy for Making America Tired of Winning.

And he was doing so well up to now. Not that I trusted him really.

With Trump, you always need to consider that he’s probably thinking several moves ahead in the game.

While I can’t and don’t completely disagree with you, Misha, on your deciding to see it that way, I will note that I didn’t support Trump for POTUS so that he could fix Obamacare. Now, if he cucks on The Wall, we have a problem, and I will have a problem with him. On Obamacare, my problem is with Paul… Read more »

Oh no. Like I said: I really can’t completely disagree with you. I find it disappointing as well.

I’m just more pissed off at Ryan and the rest of Congress than I am Trump.

Oddly, the only people who’ve really covered themselves in any glory in this mess has been Rand Paul and Tom Cotton.

But on the other hand…

Hillary. Will. NEVER. Be. President. 🙂

The healthcare issue is a disappointment, but I’m with Ironbear on priorities. The first job of and government is to defend the borders. Everything else is secondary. The only thing that comes close, IMO, is the coinage. However as you pointed out, Imperator, they could easily take one of the bills already passed, dust it off, and pass it again.… Read more »

If he does just two things – the wall and lowers taxes on corporations (IE on ALL US CONSUMERS – corporations do not get taxed, the products you buy from them are taxed) I will be satisfied enough to vote for him again while we watch the economy take off.

Brendan the moniker “freedom caucus” is the name the leftards (and that includes the media, D party and establishment Republicans who want to retain power and the status quo) in the U.S. Senate have assigned to the small group of conservatives that want really want to eliminate nationalized health care (Obamacare) and so have blocked the vote on modifying around… Read more »
