Honestly listening to Paul Ryan talk is as grating and sickening as listening to Obama talk. They are cut from the same cloth.

Yep. I am not sure I am up to it this early. 😯 I have to leave soon to meet a friend. I think I will put it off until I get back.
I’m out soon. Hopefully some brave soul will give a synopsis or we can read a transcript.

I think this piece of carp health care replacement bill is Ryan’s baby. He never wanted to repeal and replace Obamacare and this is his way of sabotaging this replacement. I have the feeling that President Trump has outsmarted him somehow (that I don’t understand). I bet he knew that Rand Paul and the others were going to tear into this.
As cetera pointed out earlier, this is well worth reading:
Why ObamaCare Cannot Simply Be Repealed…
♦ Option #1 – We can do nothing – and allow ObamaCare to collapse on it’s own. In the interim many Americans will be negatively impacted and the more vulnerable and needy will be worst hurt. Premiums and co-pays continue to skyrocket while the insurance system tries to preserve itself.
♦ Option #2 – We can Repeal and Replace using the three-phase approach being proposed by Tom Price, Paul Ryan and Donald Trump:
1. Pass reconciliation legislation targeting the financial mechanisms.
2. HHS rewrites rules.
3. New laws are proposed by a full congress to adjust ObamaCare and add to it, and laws debated/passed.
Yes, this has it’s risks. No guarantee you’ll get the cookie you want in phase three.
♦ Option #3 – Pass futile structural repeal bills in the House, and watch them pile up in the Senate without the ability to pass and earn 60 votes. Shout and holler some more, gnash some teeth, and wait for 2018 when Republicans will attempt to win the other 8 seats needed. Again, even less of a guarantee on the outcome.
Those are our options.
….Unless you want to eliminate the Constitutional Republic and kill the vote threshold in the Senate. Even nasty Harry Reid didn’t do that when he created it.
