Well, Paul Ryan and his team of RINOs are at it again. The establishment is doing their best to thwart Trump, almost as much as the Democrats!
The American Health Care Act was set to be voted upon on Thursday, but the Speaker of the House pulled it and guaranteed the president that the vote would happen on Friday.
So here were are, Friday. And guess what happened? NOTHING – the vote was pulled AGAIN. Ruh row, Speaker Ryan!
At approximately the time that the U.S. House of Representatives was supposed to vote on Speaker Paul Ryan’s Obamacare replacement bill—the American Health Care Act (AHCA)—news broke that the vote had again been canceled…
CNN reported that the bill was pulled at President Donald Trump’s request despite earlier reports that the President wanted a vote—whether or not the bill had the votes to pass. Later reports indicated it was Ryan who urged Trump that the bill needed to be pulled. It was unclear as of Friday afternoon who was ultimately responsible for the decision to pull the bill.
The vote was previously scheduled for Thursday evening, but was canceled within hours of the White House assuring that there would be a vote.
Vice President Mike Pence had canceled Friday plans to travel and promote the AHCA in two states to remain in Washington, D.C. and work with the President.
White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Thursday that if the House Leadership’s bill failed, Obamacare would remain, according to several reports.
“There were a lot of emotional pleas last night that might cause people to take off their thinking hats and react with their hearts, rather than their heads, and support what we all know is bad legislation,” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said on Friday morning to SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily.
Thanks to Paul Ryan being unable to prepare a proper new bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, he was unable to corral the House Republicans to vote for this bill. His apparent lack of leadership is of course, making President Trump look like he cannot lead. Which we know is not true. So the real question becomes, is Paul Ryan doing all of this on purpose? Is he actually a RINO, and a part of the establishment that is trying to stop Trump at all costs, including at the expense of losing the Speaker of the House role?
I am hoping that the Speaker is in a complete meltdown over this, and that the president ensures that Ryan’s antics never happen again. Every American’s healthcare is on the line here, and that is something that should be taken seriously instead of playing power trip games and attempting to shut down the president at every turn.
Only time will tell. In the meantime, we look forward to watching Trump lead us to a great bill that will ultimately repeal and get rid of that horrendous law known as Obamacare!
