Yeah, but Americans care about freedom, not privacy.


Do we really even care about freedom? Or are you talking about gratis?

Americans just like to be free to do what they tell us to. We wouldn't know tyranny if it shot us during a traffic stop.

We have liberties, that's different from having freedom.
There's no such thing as freedom, not when you have a government.

So, apparently they won't even vote on the Trumpcare bill. It was gonna fail anyway. They revised it some from the original bill, but the revised bill was even worse.
Compared to the original bill, it would cost more while the same amount of people would lose coverage.

What happened to Trump being a great negotiator and deal maker? I guess it's hard to make a deal when the product you're selling is absolute dogsh*t.

There's no way to make a decent healthcare bill that gets approved by Republicans anyway. So hopefully the Republicans will continue disagreeing on how to further destroy healthcare, and things stay as they are.

That's probably what's gonna happen. Which is just even more embarrassing to the Republicans. They've been sh*t-talking Obamacare for seven years, and once they got power, they can't even do what they've supposedly had seven years to consider.

But now the President will move onto other things. Perhaps tax reform. So let's see how that works out.

Will be interested to see how the Trump supporters spin this. Will they simply gloss over the catestrophic failure to rally any meaningful support behind his flagship policy and continue to focus on the bit-part process behind other policies, or will they blame the Republican lawmakers for the failure?

The White House is already blaming the House GOP.

They're already trying to blame all of it on Paul Ryan and the Freedom Caucus.

Breitbart has been calling it 'Ryancare' for the past couple of weeks. P amusing stuff.

If blaming the Republicans means that they'll lose seats in 2018 then that might be a good thing. Trump will get his sooner or later anyway. It's doubtful that he'll last four years and he's definitely not a two term president.

Trump sure gave up easily though. This was a big issue that he campaigned on. He has even said that it might have been one of the biggest reasons for why he won.
And he gives up after less than 100 days. Weak!

Even with a Republican majority in both the House and Senate, he couldn't get this passed. That's the major take-away from this.

 

But don't worry, he'll start blaming "the other side" (Dems) for the failure of hot garbage.

Yeah, they hate it. And they say Steve Bannon wants it to fail. http://www.breitbart...rance-industry/

They actually hate it for some of the right reasons.

Let's blame the Democrats! Let Obamacare "explode". Great idea! Instead of accepting this defeat and actually trying to improve the Affordable Care Act and working FOR the people of this country and not against them! I also don't know what the Republicans have done over the last few years. Taking a nap? So many years and they were not able to present a working health bill?
