President Trump

Despite subtle threats from President Donald Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan canceled tonight's vote on repealing Obamacare. The vote is rescheduled for tomorrow.

Republicans urged Ryan to cancel the vote on Thursday because there weren't enough yes votes to approve it.

Desperate to keep his promise to the American people to repeal Obamacare, President Trump threatened GOP members to get it passed or "seal your fate".

Some Republicans fear that if the hobbled bill isn't passed tomorrow it could affect the midterm elections and Trump's chances for reelection in 2020.

GOP leaders couldn't agree on Paul Ryan's healthcare proposal, which includes repealing tax increases on the wealthy and increasing premiums for the elderly.

Lawmakers say they want to make sure healthcare costs and premiums go down. "We need to get this bill right," said Congressman Paul Labrador in an interview with Fox News.

"We promised the American people that we're gonna repeal Obamacare… we're going to replace it with a good bill that actually brought healthcare costs down, and this bill doesn't do that."

Thursday was the 7th year anniversary of former President Obama's signing of the Affordable Healthcare Act.

    Who is going to pay for Healthcare for the poor Americans? Who?! I certainly don't want to contribute hundreds of dollars more monthly! Yet I agree it's wrong to deny people insurance based upon preexisting conditions. We wouldn't have all these issues if the cost of healthcare wasn't so expensive!

    Well the Koch brothers said they would fund any repubes who voted no because this version didn't gut ACA enough

  • Quitedeliteful

    Well now Trump said this was more complicated and convoluted than his pea-sized brain could ever have imagined. Obamacare isn't perfect. Instead of trying to tweak it and make it better these fools want to reinvent the wheel and leave people out here with nothing.

    Dump ready for his victory lap and everything. The great DEAL MAKER struck out. This is just the beginning. Nunnes doing the Comey at the last minute didn't work. Barak laying in the sun chilling.

  • hottlanta

    Still no word from Leroy Cox and the LBGTQ community even though they high-jacked the civil rights bill for their agenda.

  • NegraGata

    You know I read that djt doesn't really know what's in that bill, he just wants to win...I absolute detest this man, he is the scum of the earth and he needs to be squashed along with his cabinet.

    So slightly off topic I was watching FULL FRONTAL w/Samantha Bee and there have been elections in various citizens where people didn't get out an vote this CRAZY politicians out of office. The one I remember the most is LA, California. After the women's march which reported at least a million marchers, they didn't even bother to get out and vote for the mayor. I believe the turnout was 11.45%. My thought is don't march then turn around and not exercise your right to vote the very people you don't want in office out of office. We'll never make progress doing that dumb stuff. There were other places as well, but since I'm in Cali I remembered that one.

  • hottlanta

  • A D N

    Wow! Power in numbers. I really didn't understand the issue until this post. Yesterday's subject led me to think it was just an issue with kids running away from home and police not getting involved.

  • hottlanta

    Dump is hating President Obama for real now. He is gonna say he had something to do with this. You know if Dump didn't want to personally put his name on it, it is no good. Now he gonna deal with North Korea because ole boy overseas is missle happy.

  • A D N

    Did you see the picture yesterday of Trump walking outside in the WH hall? He looked so distressed. All of those years, he bashed Obama, I bet secretly, he now admires him. But Trump won't give up. He fired Nene because he hates quitters.

  • hottlanta

    Watching the news cycle and he is a NO SHOW. Gonna get my run on tonight come back and see what happens. He it hating on Obama because Obama is chilling and he gotta work. Dump usually clocks out at 2:45pm for the weekend for his Moscow Castle. He might call in sick.

  • AlwayssB

    Trump will win, because Winners don't lose!!!!!! Bet on it!!!!!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    Obamacare will be repealed. It may take a few more weeks but it's gone. The Republicans are just debating over the fine points. Ryan's part will be removed and there will be no more OBAMACARE. Get used to it.

  • SumthinSweeter

    God don't like ugly and that is what this fumbling bumbling embarrassment of a political/presidential administration is full of. Ugly ways, ugly people and ugly outfits!

  • GuestSTAR

    Not the Moscow Castle,......Lol

  • SumthinSweeter

    well alright then. yes and yes. loving this post. you wanna be a woman than stand up for us and with us.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Yup and during his campaign he was too busy trying to please the rednecks. Now the "whole" America and the World now see's how unprepared and uneducated President Tang is politically and ethically.

  • bemetoo

    I thought Nene quit before she could be fire

  • missmiami305

    Sounds like somebody keeps writing checks that they can't cash.

  • missmiami305

    he's a hater and haters never win nor get far.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I hope the people send a message in the 2018 elections vote them out.

  • Li

    Lower the eligibility for Medicare to 62. Let employers who offer insurance keep their insurance without interference from the government's mandates.

  • hottlanta

    Yep Dump getting ready to check out tomorrow and play golf at the Moscow Palace so that vote gotta get in before 12noon. Notice how he is staying out of it and if it fails he is gonna say I had nothing to do with it, the Republicans had 5 years to come up with a plan before I got into office.. Me and my neighbor was talking tonight about how he got hate for President Obama but he don't understand people all over the world loves him. How many black folks do you know that can stay on Marlon Brando private island and hang with Virgin Airlines and stuff. Dump betta hope President Obama better not die under suspicious circumstances or he will have hell to pay. Folks tonight putting up the major healthcare CEO salaries online and everything, they are going in.

    Worst administration in history smdh

  • hottlanta

    Now I see why Dump wanted this day to abolish Obamacare. This was the day that Obamacare came into law March 23, 2010. But he failed to realize that President Obama had 100 hearings and they trying to get it passed with 1. He wanted to be on the Dump train to say Dumpcare got passed on the day that President Obama signed it into law. I love my people.

    God don't like ugly and both Trump and Ryan have egg all over their faces.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Dumb ninjas. Vote them out, and rename the White House, The People's House. Leave the Afforable Healthcare alone, and let people live. SMH!

  • hottlanta

    Yeah talking about getting insurance out of the government hands and into the hands of private insurance with less regulations and the elderly will have vouchers. They can charge as much as they want to once they take it out of the government hands. Privatization is all about for profit. Really there are a lot of elders who have no one but themselves, old and can't do anything. A lot of them are not computer savvy and don't have access to a computer at home. They can't afford to pay $50.00 a month for internet service. Someone had me dying when they said Dump gonna have his Dump University Insurance offices to handle our insurance and we know how that is gonna turn out. They are protesting fierce and it's gonna continue into the weekend.

  • Michelle

    They fear it will impact him winning re election in 2020. As if he is going to make it to 2019 ??

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Wishful thinking

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Hahahhaa he said dont ask me for no money either!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Dump is a special kind of stupid. His mean spirit and vindictive behavior will forever haunt him. He is one I can honestly say, will likely spend eternity in hell.

  • Zizzle

    if it fails he is gonna say I had nothing to do with it

    You called it! He said exactly that. LOL! Blaming Democrats because he couldn't get enough Republicans on his side. ? The loon lives in a reality of his own making.

  • A D N

    He brought her in and fired her because she quit lol. Trump style.
