He is on fire!!! SNOWY
I couldn’t find a post of on this and was starting to panic. LOL! Thanks!
Nicely timed to pre-empt O’Reilly too!
“He would rather be with the people than the politicians, pundits, and bureaucrats.”
C-SPAN2 too. “A protester, and that will be the news story tomorrow ...”
It appears Freepers are sleeping. I wasn’t expecting this. Hope I’m wrong.
Trump interview with Tucker Carlson right after the rally. GO TRUMP GO!
Tell me about it, I’m watching it with my leftist relatives and they are visibly melting in front of me LOL!
I’m watching!! Needed my Maga fix!
So far his only mention of healthcare was how quickly he wants to get it done so he can get on to cutting taxes.
He’s just talkin common sense. Why is though so hard for so many voters?
Awesome rally. "President, he or she, fortunately it will not be 'Hillary she'" -- crowd erupts!!
To funny. Loving it
I liked his comment about going back to the first EO and taking it all the way to the Supreme Court.
This court ruling in HI has him really frustrated.
Still, so far, only mention of healthcare was carefully couched to get a cheer from the crowd re: tax cuts—oh, here we are now...
Yeah, he just laid into the 9th circuit. Now, he’s on Obamacare. I don’t think that he’ll have a lot of detail, but he is certainly reminding everybody about the way it was passed.
How did they like his attack on the Ninth Circuit?
He just gets better!! Go Trump MAGA!
I'm not sure that he's totally frustrated about it - it was likely that some whacky liberal would oppose it somewhere. I think that it does serve to illustrate who needs to go in the judicial branch. I mean, they're ruling directly against a constitutionally granted duty of the President.
“This court ruling in HI has him really frustrated.”
What on Earth does he expect? The Left to just stop and follow a Constitution they don’t believe in for even a second.
He will not stop this from happening until the Left is taken out by force. Congress will not act, they’d be happier to return to the swamp and suck the mud. The Left won’t stop, they will use every judge they’ve appointed to stop him at every turn, particularly on immigration, because that is the way they will take the country and turn it into a Marxist tyranny. He’s going to have to ignore their “rulings” and force his way - either by getting immediate action on Gorsuch or by simply ending the issuance of all visas from anywhere in the world.
He repeated on repealing and replacing 0bamacare so that pretty much puts Paul Ryan's version in the trash can.
There may have been a heckler - it was removed quickly.
I didn’t hear that at all. I heard him pushing the Obamacare 2.0 tax credits. He seems not to have heard, learned, or understood anything that anyone has explained to him re: faux insurance markets killing our healthcare system and killing us with spiraling costs.
I think that Ryan is trying to pull a fast one with the "3 part" plan. He'll push through the first part, then nothing after that. They'll drag their feet because that's what RINOs do best.
He is still talking 3 phases NO GOOD!!!
RIght—he continues to pitch the same snake oil that Ryan sold him.
I think that the tax credits are going to stay regardless. My employer gets one, and has for many decades. That’s great for those of us that work at large companies. But that benefit doesn’t help the small business or sole proprietor much at all.
That’s a great visual!
Yeah, he did say repeal and replace but if it’s with Paul Ryan’s version in three phases then that is absolutely NO GOOD.
Congress will do to Trump like they did to Reagan with Amnesty where they made promises on illegal immigration reform and they dragged it out and it never happened.
I hope President Trump listens to the American people on this where we want nothing to do with Ryan’s plan.
Fundamentally agree, although there may be other ways to rein in the courts such as by removing jurisdiction. The courts are going to be used to obstruct or stop Trump at every turn. Judges need to be taught their limits in whatever manner gets the job done.
Tax credits are a massive new entitlement that just further distort the already distorted healthcare market.
It is a mistake that we have tax deductibility for employer provided insurance, as that distorts the market as well. But there is no difference between tax credits and outright subsidies. That only compounds the error with how employer provided insurance isn’t taxed as the regular compensation that it should be taxed as.
The result of that has been to create massive third-party inefficiencies that remove market signals and price discovery from the healthcare market. That your employer deducts it is, however, something completely different and right—that is deducting a business expense so they just pay taxes on their profit.
“Repeal and replace” is part of the big Obamacare 2.0 lie.
What a shame that after all of this, Trump goes out to the people and repeats and pushes it!!!
Oh, and what your employer gets is in no way a tax credit. It is just a routine tax deduction for a business expense.
That Trump, on top of the three phases, “repeal and replace” when they’re not really repealing, trying to hook us on the tax credits, etc., further tries to dangle these great tax cuts we’re going to get if only we will let and encourage our Congressional reps to back the further destruction of our national healthcare markets is just insulting. Really offensive that he thinks we’re that stupid and easily bought off.
That IS EXACTLY what will happen, I am afraid after phase 1 they will lose the senate and WE will be screwed again, they promised Reagan wall with amnesty do we have a DAMNED WALL.......NO!!! Trump believes this IS the only way IT IS NOT!!! 2 years for costs to go down for people is to DAMNED long!!! WE will NEVER SEE phase 2&3 NEVER!!! RYAN wants Trump to be a one term POTUS and he will succeed, we will NOT see the wall, tax cuts WILL BE a whole lot lower for the PEOPLE, but not for his buddies in the Chamber of Commerce businesses, there will be nothing but excuses!!!
Pretty much the rest of what Trump has done is the sort of executive order that a Democrat president coming in in less than four years would simply replace.
This Obamacare 2.0 monstrosity is the first and to date only significant legislation that Trump is working with Congress to get passed and it is a total, frickin’ disaster. But he just keeps trying to push it.
Correctomundo. Phase II and III will never happen. Too much federal involvement anyway. Just repeal Obamacare, rip it out by the roots, salt the ground so it can never rise again, and then allow the free markets and the state and local governments (through the people) to do their jobs—with NO federal government intrusion or involvement. The constitution clearly reserves health care and insurance matters to the states and the people. Wish Trump did not have a blind spot in this regard. Cut, baby, cut. Cut spending, cut taxes, cut government, cut regulations, including cutting unconstitutional federal government intrusion into our free enterprise health care systems!!
Ryancare MUST DIE!! Trump must know it’s a disaster! I can’t believe he would consider it! WTF!!???
Well, hopefully we can get to President Trump and remind him what happened to President Reagan and amnesty, so he doesn’t make the same mistake. I hope there is enough push back, so that a much better plan comes forward.
LYIN RYAN will get his way on this DAMNED bill, then it will come to tax cuts and LYIN RYAN will again feed him a bunch of BS about the HC bill being so expensive Trump WILL HAVE TO LOWER his tax cuts to the middle class because we can’t afford it, AGAIN the Lobbyists, and Donors of RYAN will succeed Trump WILL BE a one term POTUS and we will have LYIN RYAN to thank for it!!! HIS MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!! I am VERY SURPRISED Trump is buying this BS!!
>Ryancare MUST DIE!!
Any “care” that does not REQUIRE every able-bodied citizen to work and pay for their own upkeep is doomed to failure.
We can not afford supporting the lazy, allowing welfare cases to pinch off welfare babies, or any other free crap for the lazy.
Force birth control on any persons not supporting themselves and their welfare “babies.”
No more free lunch.
It is very disappointing. But he’s got Pence and Priebus advising him, then also his lifelong Democrat son-in-law as a senior advisor, and a Goldman Sachs Democrat as his economic advisor.
We know that the likes of Paul and Cruz have been talking to him, but it is hard not to get the sense that he just didn’t listen to them—and thinks he can fool us on this.
Vlad, is that you?
