Negotiator in Chief Will Negotiate But Will Not Accept any Changes
Republicans Willing to Improve Bill But Current Version is What They Will Pass
If there was any doubt that the Feeble have taken over the Home it is dispelled in a story in the WaPo about the Republicans and debate on their version of health care reform, or what should be dubbed Non Health Care Reform. For example there is this.
"White House press secretary Sean Spicer later said that Trump supports the Medicaid provisions in the current House bill. Spicer told reporters that Trump was willing to hear from a variety of voices but rejected the notion that he was negotiating.
“Right now the date (sic) that’s in the bill is what the president supports,” Spicer said, adding: “It’s not a question of negotiation.”
Okay, then why hear from anybody if the President is unmoving on the bill? (answer: he’s is open to anything, all he wants is something passed, doesn’t care what).
Then there is this.
“We’ll continue to listen; we’ll continue to make improvements where we can,” said Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), chairman of the
and Means Committee. “But there’s no question: This is the bill at the end of
the day that will come to the president’s desk.”
Okay, then if the current bill is the one that will get to the President, how are the improvement going to get in there? (answer: they won’t be improvements in health care or health insurance, they will be improvements in punishing low income folks and raising health care costs and cutting taxes on the ultra wealthy)
And there is this.
“We are ready to go, and the worst thing we could do is hit the pause button and continue Obamacare and its broken policies,” said Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee.
Uh Greggie, don’t you know your bill essentially continues Obamacare until 2020? Oh, you don’t. You say you didn’t read it all and the part your read you didn’t understand, just that Paulie told you to support it and you did. Well that explains it.
