The DC politicians are back tracking on repealing ACA.

How difficult with the majority in Congress is it to call for a vote to close up the ACA legislation and repeal the law?

Why dangle the replacement?

Reasons:
1) Their zeal to repeal Obamacare was chiefly part of their broader effort to make President Obama's presidency fail.
2) Their constituents, ordinary American people, would be outraged with obliterating the benefits of their current healthcare plan without replacing it with one that's better -- and they want to get re-relected to keep their graves train rolling.
3) Their mission is to please the health insurance industry, their "friend" and hence another lucrative power on their grave train, by privatizing our healthcare programs.

I saw aND agree fully with a caracuture drawing that I saw on Facebook of group of Trumps supporters frantically looking and waving to Trump standing tall location smiling while piss in onto their heads...They were all yelling up to him screaming...WHO'S GOING TO BUILD THAT WALL ? His response to them was..PISS ON YOU. You gullible deplorables. Your FricKen taxes are going to build it dumbasses.. I just wanted to win ... I loved it.

I am The Real Donald Trump and remind Americans that in the era of Trump there are no empirical facts! We as conservatives stand on our beliefs. If we believe enough it becomes truth! If we repeat that truth enough, it assumes the reality of a fact! And above all, remember nothing I say, and by extension my horde of faithful, is for serious consumption or literal interpretation! It's symbolic only!

it should be obvious to everyone that reTHUGlicans do NOTHING but lie, distort, and evade, and in no area is this more obvious than in regard to the ACA. Right from the beginning they've attacked and tried to destroy it without ever being able to offer ANY good reason for doing so, and without ANYTHING to replace it with.

Clearly, to any intelligent person, it's all about taking away an accomplishment of the Obama administration, because they hate him passionately - a hatred rooted in both his liberalism and race.

ReTHUGlicans are the enemies of America. Never trust them! Ever!

Republicans running scared when it comes to replacing Obamacare. It is put up or shut up time. I have a feeling this issue will cost them dearly in the 2018 midterms.

Blasphemy! The minority of Americans who voted for me will rejoice at the repeal of Obamacare and they will carry us to landslide 2018 midterms! Nevermind the 15-30 million Americans who will lose medical coverage all together! They undoubtedly all reside in one of the many liberal enclaves!

Urban League cites Obama 'failures' for black America in 'excellent' report card
By PAUL BEDARD (@SECRETSBEDARD)
(

The National Urban League issued an "excellent" report card for President Obama's eight years, but highlighted numerous and important "failures," so many that they totaled 42 percent of its review.

"While we scored many of the administration's achievements with our highest rating,'Superior,' President Obama's tenure as a whole had shortcomings due to some notable missed opportunities and outright failures, such as the economic development of urban centers, gun violence and the foreclosure rate and bank closure rate in communities of color and low-income neighborhoods. On these and other issues, we rated the Obama administration 'Fair' or 'Poor,'" wrote Urban League President Marc H. Morial.

The 16-page report card reviewed eight areas of policy impacting urban areas and African Americans, and found that Obama's success to failure rate at 57.5 percent to 42.5 percent.

WHAT A HOOT- 57.5% FAILURE RATE AND THEY RATE IT EXCELLENT. ANOTHER PARTICIPATION TROPHY)

That's it my faithful! Deny both conservative and liberal estimates of those covered by Obamacare. Deny without any contrary evidence, estimates, or proof! Never consider long reaching implications of the moves Republicans and I are enacting! All that matters is your loyalty and blind allegiance! Trust me, I am the great Donald Trump!
