Presiding over Obama Care….after all those promises?

Trump promised to REPLACE…then he went to REPEAL…there were months and months of “GET RID OF OBAMACARE FIRST ON THE AGENDA IF I WIN!”

Suddenly, he won and they’re saying “maybe next year…”

This is the kind of situation America deserves better on……..I don’t want to vote for things and find out someone (and all the many minions who were in on his promises) was talking without knowing THE FACTS.  The Republicans in power were talking with him during the candidacy;  did nobody say “you can’t DO that!” or “Don’t promise anything too soon,”  or “We have this great plan so yes, you can roll it out immediately!”  Suddenly, he’s in power and everybody’s back stepping on healthcare?   The Republicans kept saying they have plans but …really?

I, the one who’s always saying “I wish Trump would wait and do things right,” thought he, at least, had enough input on healthcare to support his WE WILL DO IT NOW promises…I’m a bit nervous about this administration which makes wild promises, or threats, and seems not to know what they’re quite talking about….?

What were your thoughts when he suddenly said “maybe at the beginning of next year?”

    Not shocked or surprised. I believe he has made clear his desire for government health care. But it’s not just Trump. Very few republicans are constitutional conservatives. Most in Washington are colluding btwn parties and way out of step with the real America. We should definitely stay “nervous about this administration,” Z. Trump can be somewhat malleable when his ego is stroked, so hopefully the good people around him will herd him in the right direction occasionally (like the Gorsuch pick). But obamacare? I’m afraid we may be stuck with it (or worse)

  2. ObamaCare’s tentacles extend throughout the healthcare system. I’m not sure that Trump knew the full extent of those tentacles. Hell, who does understand? Look how long the ObamaCare bill was — and later it was tweaked multiple times.

    I could not have phrased this any better. When our two major parties primary response to a clearly unconstitutional and untenable government action, is to merely find a way to make it run better….rather than consigning it to where it belongs…..we can see that there’s no true desire to pursue Constitutional Conservatism.

    I agree with AOW. Having worked in Healthcare Administration, Obamacare will be very difficult to dismantle without causing even more harm if not done correctly. The reimbursements are so tangled up with Medicare, medicaid, the insurance industry, rules and regs for hospitals, requirements for care and so on. It was over a thousand pages long and the regs for implementation thousands of pages more. Sadly it may be better for it to collapse on its own so people want the GOP plan turns out to be. To flat repeal Obamacare would be a disaster. I have heard Ryan talk about it and he gets it. I also feel that at least wait for Tom Price to be Secretary and get his input before anything is done.

    And my point is Trump had to know that a quick end to Obamacare would be impossible; it can’t be that NO REPUBLICANS involved closely with healthcare the last few years didn’t KNOW this is going to be much tougher to do that Trump and they promised.

    Bunkerville is right; I’ve heard Paul Ryan talk about it and he does get it. For those who said “Trump listens” I need to remind them that, months ago, I told them, second hand, that HE LISTENS TO NOBODY.
    Yes, Bunker…Tom Price will get in and hopefully talk publicly about what CAN be done and WHEN it can be done.

    Off topic but what the hell…..Here is the Jihadi version of “Housewives” of Jihad…

    The BBC did something no one expected and amusingly mocked the Islamic State and women who travel to Syria in a clip from their show Revolting.

    The short video is designed as a fake trailer for a show parodying Real Housewives. There are actually some fun shots thrown at Islamists, feminists, and the religion of Islam itself. It’s borderline politically incorrect, which means it’s way funnier than anything the BBC has ever done before.

    Are you surprised to see British Muslims get offended for a comedy mocking ISIS?

    Thoughts… Trump was campaigning – no question. He tells us this when he said he could have won the popular vote if he campaigned a different way. So job 1 was to get elected. For me the jury is out on what sort of plan will replace ocare. Trump says it will be doctor and patient focused, so let’s see. It has to be that.
    (IBM offered obama hardware and software to eliminate the reported 50% fraud in mediocare, wonder if they’ll offer it to Trump.)

    I’d like it to happen before next year becuse there is a bunch of really nasty bits of ocare to be implemented in 2017 and 2018. Are the repubs holding it back so people will see first hand how disgusting it will be and almost everyone gets on board for replacement? If he waiting on solid footing in the supreme court becuase you know the vampires are going to go sue happy with whatever the replacement is.

    Rand Paul says he has a replacement, wonder what is up with that.

    I generally like what Trump’s been up to. I like the cabinet picks a lot. I like seeing the media being held to account, instead of just letting them run wild like Bush did. If Gorsuch ‘fixes’ the supreme court we can make some conservative progress.

    Mal and Kid; too many Americans have been stuck ‘in between’…not financially okay enough to have insurance and not poor enough to get it for free…lost homes, lost financial futures, etc. They’re the people who needed help. Mal’s right; most people, very poor, DO get help.

    Also, because of the nightmare of PAPERWORK, I’m hearing more and more excellent doctors a few years from retirement who are retiring NOW because the paperwork is choking them; just not worth it…not enough time left for patients….it’s horrible.

  53. Z – I absolutely agree with you, as I have in the past; the U.S. media generally fails to educate the public. But where there will be calls that Islamic terror attacks in Europe don’t really get covered well here, the same can be said for any other part of the world. We simply don’t get news of these events from Turkey, southeast Asia, India, etc. It’s largely a matter of bandwidth though. No media outlet can air coverage of every event globally; we only really see those that either affect U.S. interests….of have a high casualty count/take place at a tourist landmark. Low-grade terror attacks here really don’t get covered in other parts of the world either.

    This is how it’s always been. Media consumers have a limited attention span, and really only care about the pop culture landscape, sadly.

    Trump’s Twitter feed is where I get most of my entertainment, and where I see most of his lies and immaturity. I wish he’d left his personal phone in NYC or Mar-a-Lago on Jan 20th.

    I just signed up to Follow Trump on Twittter and have to say I was less upset after seeing them in a row than when I hear them singularly in ‘hate Trump’ articles.

    I just read that Tom Brady might be friendly with Trump but his wife has been tweeting slams, too.
    EVERYBODY IS AGAINST TRUMP>…..and the media LOVES TO REPORT IT.
    I don’t think he has a chance.

    I was thinking that if we have a bad attack again, he’ll be probably good at dealing with it but then I realized that HE will be blamed by Americans for it..”he said too much” “He hated Muslims,” etc etc….they’ll all BLAME HIM no matter WHAT. And that’s not right.

    I ran across this…apparently, this guy knows the score was put up before it was over but nobody’s talking about it elsewhere!?
    Also, Super Bowl must have been rigged “because Trump left the party he was attending to watch it early.” Oh, and “Russians rigged the election, so who’s to say the Bowl wasn’t rigged??”

    You can’t make this stuff up.
