Trump Tweet Shames McConnell; Obamacare Repeal ‘Not Done’

(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tried to shift blame for his perceived failure on Obamacare repeal to President Donald Trump’s “excessive expectations” about Congress’ ability to pass legislation.

But in a tweet Wednesday afternoon, Trump did not let McConnell shirk the blame.

McConnell made these remarks in a speech to a rotary group in Kentucky:

“Congress goes on for two years, and part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven’t done much is because, in part, the President and others have set early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point,” he said. “Now, our new President has of course not been in this line of work before and I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process.”

McConnell said he would keep Congress in session until the third week of August to confirm judicial nominees and pass healthcare and tax reform. But the Senate is in a pro-forma session right now, which means no legislation will be debated.

McConnell said Congress’s work is not finished:

“So, what I’m asking of you is to judge this Congress when it finishes. How much have we done to make America competitive again and to grow again, and that’s part of making America great again, which is what the President talks about so much.”

    McConnell is a RINO and backs the lying democrats every time, so I think it is time to get rid of the RINO McConnell it’s time to drain the swamp.

    President Trump is doing such a great job despite all the RINOs, libitards, national media fake news, and establishment retards that are not cooperating with the improvements. Frankly, the proposed repeal and replaced bills were crap because they only modified obumerCare and kept most of the mandates that are so offensive. Pre-existing conditions requirement is just not workable and no one will admit it. The cost just destroys the economics — PERIOD. Last year when I heard Candidate Trump say that he thought pre-existing conditions was a good idea, I cringed. He didn’t know what the economic costs would be. Plus the Republicans only have 52 Senators and that just isn’t enough to pass almost anything when you have a McCain that is really a liberal — look what he has said about an amnesty bill since he has got is terminal C — he wants to get with Demorats and pass an amnesty bill. 48 demorats plus McCain and all they need is a few more to vote that in in the Senate. And the media is making it sound like the Republicans can pass anything at will & they can’t.

  • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

    The fix was in, the rinos were never going to pass the repeal and McCain took the fall so all the stinkin’ rinos could say they voted for the repeal.

    • fws3

      McCain is the very worst RINO, period.

      • armyisnumber1

        HE WON’T BE HERE THIS TIME NEXT YEAR. WITH HIS AGE AND ROTTEN CORE, HE WILL BE LUCKY IF HE MAKES IT 8 MONTHS. GLIOBLASTOMA IS A REALLY BAD THING… THE WORST.

        • dennis w

          THE WORST…..?????
          GREAT…..!!!!!!
          HE DESERVES THE BEST…………( CANCER ) …….THAT IS………

    • Louie Rey

      Notice how the lamestream media, which is on an endless loop of Trump bashing, only seems to go to McCain to get his “take” on what’s going on in the GOP? There’s a reason for this. They know that they can count on him for another slanderous comment which fits right in with their anti-Trump agenda. He’s turned into a pathetic, bitter old man whose usefulness has long ago dissipated.

      • dennis w

        SONGBIRD…………………………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        TRAITOR……………………………!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        DISGUSTING COMMIE RINO……………………………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Louie Rey

          Lindsay Graham is a close second as he, more often than not, is either standing right next to McCain to give their “opinions” on Trump and his actions or at the very least he’s the one that the media goes to immediately after McCain has finished denigrating Trump. Although, for what seems like the very first time. last night Graham actually commended Trump on his stance regarding that nut job in North Korea.

          • nocbsfan

            I wonder if that is just a ploy?

          • Louie Rey

            Could be but if I had to venture a guess I’d say that, in this case, he’s being sincere. I could see him being worried and wanting to cover his butt just in case that nut job actually tries something. I think it’s called self-preservation which is pretty much how all career politicians go about their lives.

          • nocbsfan

            You maybe right. I saw the broadcast as well and sat up on the edge of my seat, hardly believing what I was seeing. If he would just stay that way, things would start looking up for him, wouldn’t be bad on my moral either

  • Simple_Man

    Difficult to believe McConnell is the best we have to get the job done in the Senate.

    • Gerry Costa

      He is far from the best and Kentucky voters need to get their heads out of their backsides and oust him ASAP !!!!!!!

    • chief1937

      Agreed when he is the best we have we have nothing sorry. But just look at who elected him to his position doesn’t say too much for them does it?

  • Sparty009

    McConnell is a snake and is now trying to sell his oil. He and most of his fellow congressman believe the We the American people are stupid. We will really never know what goes on behind the closed doors with a handshake and a wink. They sit there and conspire, seeing who is up for reelection, making sure those people vote the “correct way” so they can go home to their constituents and say “I tried and will continue to fight if you put me back in office.” It’s all a calculated game. There is no true concern for saving this country from socialism, no matter what side of the aisle they sit on.

  • Louie Rey

    No offense there big guy but President Trump is right on with his comments. The fact that he questions how “quickly things happen in the democratic process” is an indictment of exactly how SLOWLY things happen in the democratic process. He’s hit the nail right on the head. You career politicians who wallow in arrogance and smugness show exactly what the problem is. In any other field of work you’re supposed to get your job done as quickly and as efficiently as possible. There are no month long vacations. Even if it were a week long vacation, which is what an American most likely would get, you’re taking a vacation from what exactly? Wearing suits and walking through marble laden corridors while accomplishing nothing? You are ALL way past your expiration date of usefulness and should go home.

    • Gerry Costa

      Louie Rey —- Exactly right !!!!! They have become so comfortable in their accomplishing nothing politics — they have forgotten or never knew how to get the job done. This is exactly why most all of Congress wants to see President Trump to fail — HE EXPECTS THEM TO DO THEIR JOBS which has become unheard of in our government.

      • Louie Rey

        “HE EXPECTS THEM TO DO THEIR JOBS” and they’re shocked by that. In what alternate universe is that an unacceptable proposition? EVERYONE who has a job is expected to do it. If not then they’d lose that job. But that’s the issue right there. As you say, they’re very comfortable doing nothing because in the vast majority of cases there are no repercussions for lack of accomplishment. That sound you hear is our Founding Fathers spinning in their graves.

        • Gerry Costa

          If you check the backgrounds of these congress people — you will find that many many of them have NEVER held a real job so they don’t know what it means to actually work.

          • rapunzel972

            Amen!

          • Louie Rey

            I thought that was universally understood. And that’s another factor in how ludicrous our political establishment is. Think about it, Hussein never ran even a lemonade stand and yet he’s entrusted with the world’s largest economy? Are you &#$^%^$^ kidding me?You’re 100% correct. They have absolutely no clue whatsoever of how to deal with a deadline, a quota, a sales promotion, etc., etc., etc. I’m surprised that Congress’ approval rating is even 10%. Must be their immediate families that were polled.

          • Gerry Costa

            100% agree — and we put the future of our country in their hands !!!!!!!

          • Louie Rey

            I’ve often said, I think you’d agree, that there are probably many, many people that would make incredible elected officials, especially a president, that just refuse to even think about running due to the over the top scrutiny that they and their families have to go through. It’s as if a person announces their candidacy and immediately there are a bunch of people sifting through their garbage to see if they can come up with something inflammatory or scandalous about them. Who the f**k needs that? And that’s why we’re left with these morons that have absolutely no shame whatsoever and will take whatever’s thrown at them just as long as they get elected. Qualifications? Not so much.

          • nocbsfan

            Man are you ever so right.

          • Louie Rey

            Like I said, who would ever want to put up with that nonsense. Only a shameless self promoter.

          • nocbsfan

            A year goes by pretty fast (for me) election is near I expect a lot of changes in the next couple of months

          • Gerry Costa

            Exactly right. The most “qualified people”(I would include President Trump in that group) stay far away from politics for that very reason. What we get left with is the sewer dwelling low-life corrupt trash as they have repeatedly proven. I think President Trump thought he could accomplish some good for America and her citizens but underestimated the extent of the inner circle of corruption that exists through both parties and all the agencies. I still back him and will continue to do so in 2020.

          • Louie Rey

            I agree wholeheartedly but what I agree with you most on is the fact that he’s being opposed by BOTH parties. When Trump, otherwise known as the bull in the DC china shop, showed up he was upsetting EVERYBODY’S apple cart. It was no longer business as usual. Why would you want business as usual when you look at the mess that’s resulted in?

          • USN Vet 31yrs Svc

            Congress is POTUS’s enemy. They have taken away is lawful right to conduct foreign policy by requiring congress approval to remove sanctions. They put the senate in a proforma condition to prevent recess appointments. The have yet to approve nominated candidates for positions.
            Damned Disgusting!!!

          • theframerswereright

            So true.

          • USN Vet 31yrs Svc

            You are absolutely wrong. They always go on vacation on time. Never miss a chance. The only priority is the next election. With, todays technology, video conference would solve talking to voters. No need to depart DC.

          • Louie Rey

            I’m trying to figure out how I’m wrong when we seem to agree on the topic.

          • USN Vet 31yrs Svc

            I was being snide. I do agree with you. the only thing that they seem to accomplish on time is their scheduled vacations. They are not in congress for the American people as they claim.

          • chief1937

            One major thing I have never understood a congress person will go into office broke and come out a millionaire did not realize the job paid so well.

          • Gerry Costa

            makes you wonder, doesn’t it chief !!!

          • Fed up!

            Ask Marco Rubio that question. Flat broke as a Florida congressman, get elected by scamming he his way as a conservative and today ask him his worth, you be amazed
            He a lying piece of 💩

          • USN Vet 31yrs Svc

            They have sold their soul’s to the highest bidder. The American People are not on the list of priorities. Unless, its for more money.

        • nocbsfan

          I agree with all you are saying,except you din’t add the news media of which they are deathly afraid, Media’s assault on our President leads them to think the media will do the same thing to them, and the media wishes to keep it that way. But for those I talk to from Kentucky says it is time for him to go. I believe that also.

          • Louie Rey

            Well, the news media kind of fits right in with the garbage that they’d be looking through. And as far as McConnell goes, he’s way past his usefulness date. The solution’s called term limits.

          • nocbsfan

            Then we are going to have to say out very loud and concise “If you want to be elected to congress will you vote for term limits ?”

          • Fed up!

            I believe that when they vote him out and replace with a true conservative

          • nocbsfan

            Only time will tell, unless he changes a lot he is on his way out.

        • IluvmyUSA

          Exactly!! What Mitch is saying is, Congress is not accustomed to doing their jobs. So if the president means for them to work and get things done, his expectations are way to high.

          • Louie Rey

            Let’s put it this way, I’m shocked that Congress even has a 10% approval rating. Who are they polling anyway, their immediate family members?

          • IluvmyUSA

            I think polls are pretty much like fake news anyway. They ask for our honest opinion and yet give back the results of their choosing. They’re nothing more than media controlled bs that’s all.

          • Louie Rey

            You could very well be right considering that the House and Senate has a GOP majority and the media is so liberally biased that they’re putting out numbers that reflect that when it’s really their distaste for that party.

          • IluvmyUSA

            Exactly!!!

          • USN Vet 31yrs Svc

            And because we said that we would repeal obumer care, you can’t expect us to mean it. We are only politicians. We have a time tested procedure, “kick the can down the road”. We have the next election to worry about.

    • theframerswereright

      Love it! So good!

      “There are no month long vacations. Even if it were a week long vacation, which is what an American most likely would get, you’re taking a vacation from what exactly? Wearing suits and walking through marble laden corridors while accomplishing nothing?”

      So true, so funny, so pathetic. Best comment of the day.

      • Louie Rey

        Thanks. It’s shocking though that the truth is not only so incredulous but humorous at the same time. It shouldn’t be that way when we’re talking about people who are in charge of our present and our future. You’d think that something of that importance would carry much more weight with these morons.

        • theframerswereright

          Absolutely agree… the situation is at a critical mass and most (politicians) just think along party lines to preserve their lifestyles. Sad.

          I’d like to see congress meet only twice a year. Maybe a small yearly salary, no benifits, no office (except in their state). I really don’t have a problem with congress and senate lifers. They just can’t keep raping the people so they can live lavish lifestyles. It’s sickening. Go back to your state and live there – and see what will benefit them. That’s why they’re elected. Right?

          • Louie Rey

            Two things, I totally DISAGREE with your acceptance of political lifers. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Thankfully he retired but Rep. Charles Rangel was in Congress for almost half a decade. At one time he was the head of the House Ways and Means Committee. Do you know what that committee’s responsible for? How American taxpayer dollars are spent. Nice, right? Except for one thing, he DID NOT PAY HIS TAXES. In fact, he was censured by Congress as a result of his actions. He never was ousted though. I do AGREE with your request that they stop raping the people. I think it was President Truman who said that “If you go into politics poor and you come out rich you’re stealing.” A perfect example besides Rangel? That despicable Maxine Waters. Her district in California is one of the poorest but at this point she not only doesn’t even live in her district but she instead lives in a $4.5 million mansion. Do you think she acquired that property through her outstanding business acumen? I don’t either.

          • theframerswereright

            All excellent points. Well put and I completely agree.

            My ultimate point is that by taking the money, collusion and corruption out of politics “lifers” would be highly unlikely… and if there were “lifers” – they would likely have an altruistic desire to be there.

            Make no mistake, everyone you mentioned is an enemy of the US and I was by no means referring to them when I wrote that. My apologies for not being clear enough.

          • Louie Rey

            No Need to apologize. I know that ultimately we’re on the same page and want the same results which are whatever’s best for America. You didn’t even have to post anything for me to realize that based on your “name.” Yes, they were right.

          • theframerswereright

            It’s always nice to be nice! Thanks Louie.

    MCCONNELL IS A HORRIFIC LEADER. PLEASE RETIRE AND DO AMERICA A FAVOR. YOU HAVE HAD A LONG TIME TO GET OUR HEALTHCARE IN ORDER AND YOU DID NOTHING. GO AWAY, YOU ARE TOO DAMN OLD TO KEEP UP WITH TRUMP AND DO AMERICA A FAVOR AND SAY “BYE BYE”.

  • Gerry Costa

    “Excessive Expectations” —- why because President Trump is wanting Congress to do EXACTLY what they were elected to do. Imagine that —- do your job and stop playing your ridiculous politicial games. mcconnell is just like the rest of the rinos — he wants to go back to the status -quo with a corrupt career politician in the Ovak Office so they can go back to their little corrupt world of fleecing of Americans. Just like the Arizona voters, Kentucky voters need to dump this worthless rino ASAP and put a conservative in office who wants to not only work with President Trump but work for American and not just what he can put in his pocket !!!!

  • TOM HENRY

    We need to get rid of McConnell. He not only makes excuses, he is an excuse. President Trump has Excessive Expectations because there is still too much crap from the previous administration and into draining the swamp.

  • phil

    McConnell aka Tooter Turtle, has had more than ample opportunity to repeal this abortion if a law. One might think that if not for Tooter this would have been repealed years ago.
    Time to repeal the 27th admendment.
    this will return the senate back to the states and take the $$$$$$$ out of Washington

  • misterguru

    They could not repeal because they said if it was repealled hundreds of thousands of Demoncrat voters would die. Hmmm, maybe they should have passed it.

  • Larry Baker

    If this congress and senate were a company they would all be fired for not performing to expectations. These idiots have been bleeding the tax payer for so many years they do not understand the concept of productive accomplishments. Its not rocket science at least repeal the ObamaCare law and let competition take over in the market place like it has for years before ObamaCare. Insurance was 45 a week for a family until the insurance companies received the ObamaCare license to steal.
    ObamaCare is a total rape of the tax payers by the insurance and pharmaceutical industries. Enough is Enough already.
    The working man is paying for benefits for people that do not want to work, illegals and muslim immigrants. Not to mention planned parenthood (I do not want my money spent on abortions).

  • misterguru

    Get your list ready for the next election to vote the Dem’s and Rino’s out. They must not have gotten the memo from the last election.

  • Maxine Albritton

    I think the democratic process could be speeded up quite a lot. I know things have to be debated etc. but the president is one who wants and needs things done in an expedient manner and I don’t think that is expecting to much. So learn to move things along better and stop daydreadming about vacations.

    • nocbsfan

      McConnell has a young wife, and has things to do. He doesn’t have time for legislation or directing the Senate, Time for a permanent honeymoon and move from Washington. He is really to old for the Senate or home life. Maybe he should go fishing except that requires some activity.

      • Maxine Albritton

        maybe the voters in his state should give him the retirement he deserves. He will still live like a king on his pensions.

        • nocbsfan

          There is most likely many people who would take it away from him, but he gets that anyway, and there isn’t anything one can do about it. I am sure he will live good enough for him on what he will get

  • rapunzel972

    Instead of blaming Trump, I blame you guys. You are not behind Trump 100% & come the 2018 elections, I hope you RINOS & demoncrats are thrown out. So, McConnell, up yours!

  • CorrectionPlease

    The job of a RINO is to get re-elected.

    Democrats don’t even worry about re-election with
    their mindless block voters, bogus registrations, fraudulent voting returns.

    Ignoring all this, the American public in its wisdom elected DRAP,
    Demo Rino Alliance Party, to run Congress.

  • chief1937

    What a bunch of double talk from McConnell to say nothing. For instance time line on health care has been debated for over a year now just how much time does one need to read and accept any proposal? If it takes a year for each bill no wonder nothing has been accomplished. Time for new leadership that really wants to lead not lolly gag around.

  • CorrectionPlease

    They can’t be challenged in primaries because corporations provide endless funding
    to beat down their primary challengers.

    Big pharma funds our Congressional Rino in NJ, Rep Leonard Lance.

    His last primary challenger, a reputable guy named Larsen,
    was made to look worse that the Devil himself
    with the corporate funding for Lance.

  • Harry Pearson

    I have to agree with Louie Rey, Congress had 7 years, 7 LONG YEARS, to have a bill written, signed, waiting to present as soon as both houses and the WH were all lined up Republican! All this shows, Mr. McConnell, is that there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans, only between politicians and Americans. Maybe, sir, you should take a good, long, hard look at that statement and see what you can do with your remaining time in office to change that.

    • nocbsfan

      Every one agrees with Louie because he never lies,,,,, much. 🙂

  • Dead Toad

    Yep this guy is about as useful as a two legged horse. He talks so slow I can barely sit through his speech. he’s like a turtle slow and clearly useless. After listening to him talk I’m not surprised he accomplishes nothing. Who voted for this idiot I think that’s the main question. I think our options have been over Limited at the poles for whom to vote for. We need more candidates on the ballot to vote for because I think this guy was probably the only one listed and people really didn’t have a choice of candidates to choose from.

  • JHW

    Time to over haul the Republican party or start a new party. Trump has showed us the true colors of republican party.

    • R G

      Join the Constitution Party or the Tea Party. They support patriots.

  • Sharon Melvin

    These RINOs work for us, the American people, and we have high expectations! He and others like him should be voted out of office. We need new blood in Washington!!!!! Stop wining and making excuses like Hilary!

    • R G

      These RINOs DON’T work for us. They work for Big Pharma companies , lobbyists, and other big business’s . They need to be removed from office by the voters. We have the job/honor of draining the swamp next election cycle in 2018 and 2020. Then and ONLY then can President Trump have a clear path for MAGA.

  • old_salty_dawg99

    Sorry there Mitch but you and your cronies are the reason laws we need have not been passed and your fault all alone. We the PEOPLE want Obozocare GONE but spineless cowards like Mitch and McCain LIED and Shafted the people as they always do. We need to throw all who voted for Obozocare the first time it passed and those who voted against repealing it this time out on there SORRY WORTHLESS Backsides.

  • I have been suspicious of McConnell for along time. Nothing has changed

    • nocbsfan

      Hmmmmmmmmmm thought that would increase by now.?

      • nocbsfan,

        I have been leery of McConnell for quite some time. He seems more RHINO in action as opposed to his rhetoric.

        • nocbsfan

          He is so much Rino now that even he thinks he is

          • In my opinion he is worse than a RINO. He is not honest, even with himself.

          • nocbsfan

            Show me a Rino who is honest with himself, how can you be a Rino and be honest Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

          • I am SICK of lying RINO’s. They are as bad as many liberals. Maybe worse.

          • nocbsfan

            Everyone is sick of them.They must be voted out in the primaries. And replaced with people who is loyal to the republican party, and they must vote for term limits. 2 terms for congress men and women And two terms for senators

          • RINO’s are supposed to be Republicans but are not. Where do we draw the line? Moderate, more right, or nut case far right?

          • nocbsfan

            RINO’s are republicans in name only. Simply using the party to gain elections. They need to go. We must stay in contact with people from Kentucky
            Wisconsin and Tennessee And do some real urging.

          • I agree with you that they are just using the party to get elected. Now the trick is to get them un-elected.

          • nocbsfan

            There is no trick, just convince voters to elect someone else Requires talking a lot, with a convincing voice. Try it you will like it

          • nocbsfan,

            Money, sir. I get hit up for money that I do not have.

          • nocbsfan

            Like they have been doing for years “I gave at the office” Now vote this way ?

          • That’s about the way it works. Except I can’t “give at the office” because I am retired.

          • nocbsfan

            So am I and have been for many years, bu they don’y know that ?

          • I know. But like you, I can’t afford to give everyone who asks, a fat check.
            Obviously they need money to finance their desires. I do what little I can but I cannot give to everyone.

          • nocbsfan

            Now you know all the sayings, “glad to see you the checks in the mail”Quit worrying about giving them money, just tell them how to vote and why.

          • I may be slow but I’m ahead of you. That is precisely what I do.

          • nocbsfan

            There ! See how easy that was ?

          • Sho nuff.

          • nocbsfan

            Now , what in the world was we talking about.

          • Yer getting old and suffering from memory loss. As for me, I am absolutely positive that I distinctly recall that I do not remember. See how easy that was?
            We were discussing McConnell? Trump? Nope. That’s not it. We were discussing my inability to send everyone on the planet, sufficient funds for all they seek to do. Ize just too poor. But I am sure you could take my place. Oh, I forgot. Yer not sending all yer hard earned money to politicians either. Sho nuff.

          • nocbsfan

            Well I tell you, been there done that, I gave Ronald Reagan $10,000,00 to have have diner with him. Although I wasn’t able to sit at his table I was placed at Nancy’s table, essentially I paid 10K to have diner with the President’s wife.

          • Nancy was better looking than Ronald. Don’t knock it.

            Yes she was, but there were eight people to a table. She did talk a lot.

          • Sometimes if we listen we learn something. Of course,women are often a bad choice.

            I don’t know this little girl was pretty sharp. Course she was in charge of California once, she talked about that a lot. She did keep check on her husband, don’t know why he was certainly well protected. And she did mention being First Lady.

          • That woman was very sharp. Best to pay attention.

            So History marches on,I feel like I was a little part of this one, even if the tickets were expensive

          • I would have loved to have been in your shoes. I well respect the Reagan pair.

          • nocbsfan

            Wishhhhh you could have also Jerry, I t was fun in those days besides I was 25 or 30 years younger then.

          • I lived in Long Beach but well before the Regans were well known for anything. That was in 1944-1946. One memory is of my sister getting me to try roller skates. I promptly fell, took them off and never put them on again.

          • nocbsfan

            Nothing adventurous about you is there?

          • I have been to a lot of places in the last 80 years. Long Beach was one of them. I have been to many different states (about 35-40), Canada, Mexico, Korea and China. I have been all around Oklahoma but never in it. I have worked on projects in Columbia, Argentina, Pakistan, Iran and Libya. Other that that, I have not done much.

          • nocbsfan

            Did you dig all those places up.? Must have been a long time since you were in Iran, they don’t like people digging in there grave yards

  • Fed up!

    Hey McCrappie President Trump is right on the mark. You talk big for seven years you Rinos, but your talk was nothing more than 💩. President Trump is calling you out, either STFU and resign or do what you promised the American voters demanded.
    President Trump is being nice, well nice no more voters are tired of Both Parties 💩 Mid terms are coming and we will vote true conservatives in office to either remove you or vote you out.

    Repeal and replace Mith Mc Connell. Lazy good for nothing parasite

  • Kimberly

    The reason we elected Trump was because ‘he has never been in this line of work before.’ McConnell is such a smug SOB. Wake up people and vote this Rhino hack out of office.

  • gideonrockwell

    McConnell is just as big a RINO as McCain. Time to replace him with Ted Cruz.

  • John

    If I were POTUS TRUMP, I’d tweet a name or two a day of GOPers that are fighting against you, and the nation but with the Dems. We need to twist their arms, not let them hide, and vote them out, if necessary.

  • AKLady

    Obamacare repeal is done’ More than enough money has been wasted on this foolish political game. John McCain’s experience with the cost of cancer treatment allowed him to see reality — as it actually exists.

  • AKLady

    How many failures will it take before the right-wing understands it is barking up the wrong tree? John McCain learned the hard way — cancer.
    If only the entire bunch of fools could share that education — it is called learning the hard way.

    08121, reply to Jack Davis @ Western Journalism, RINOS and DINOS back their criminally obstructionist Henchman, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    The republican rank and file should be smart enough to put a measure on their Republican primary ballot in every state [START DOING THIS TODAY !] voting to expel RINO senators from the party by popular vote; as well, directing those RINO’s to register themselves as the foreign agents of the pro – communist governments of Cuba, Venezuela, China, Russian, South Africa, Rhodesia, Somalia, Canada that they are.

    And, as far as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Republican process should begin with the immediate filing of charges against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for intentionally obstructing the legislative process to advance : maintain : protect his Ameri’Kan Politi’Ka ‘Klass’s self-serving looting, plundering, oppressing, and selling America out to their Alien and illegal alien henchmen.

    It seems to me the Republican Party has the authority to actually put Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on administrative leave from the Party and party duties pending resolution of the intentional obstruction charges; specifically

    1. using his office to obstruct the legislative process;

    2. Aiding and abetting the comey, Meuller, Rosenthal politically motivated, personal vendetta advancing, special investigatory fraud they simply made up and then asked their Hate America to Destruction Politi’Kal ‘Klass henchmen and stooges [who run both so-called parties] to support and validate by refusing to arrest comey, Mueller, Rosenberg RICO for their maliciously structured prosecutorial Fraud which they set in motion for what They perceive to be in/for their personal interest : political gain, revenge, and unjust enrichment…

    the same as every other criminal operation running a RICO through the office [and body] of the Senate Majority Leader – either or both of which charges, in any political situation, should immediately suspend McConnell from being the Senate Chairman.
