President Trump again went outside Washington to whip up support for House Republicans´ health care bill Monday, telling a rally in Louisville, Ky. that the legislation "is our chance to end ObamaCare and the ObamaCare catastrophe." "This is our long-awaited chance to finally get rid of Obamacare." Trump told the crowd at the city´s Freedom Hall. "It´s a long-awaited chance. We´re going to do it." In a speech peppered with shout-outs to Kentucky´s congressional delegation — "Hey, Mitch," Trump asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at one point, "we gonna

But it´s not the last chance. Only fools rush in. If Ryan and Mitch are for it then I´m against it. Repeal In Name Only, Ocarelight, I´m not buying it until I hear it´s not The Affordable Care Act Part Deux. When Mark Levin is happy with it, I´m happy with it. Until then, no way.

I am happy with it and hope it passes. Then comes part 2 which is the executive branch changes that can be made to regulations now in force and then we vote for part 3 which is about opening up insurance across state line, allowing more associations to provide insurance, and limit tort recoveries.

I hear not one Republican saying they must have insurance purchase available across state lines. They talk about general free market choice but no specifics. I hear nothing about tort reform. Their donors do NOT want the unfettered competition that would cause needed change.

When all our elected representatives have to be insured under the same set of rules then I will be happy with it.

I guess he heard from Big Pharma and the trial lawyers. I.E., competition brings down prices, and tort reform spells bye-bye jackpot.

A wave of dangerous hatred has struck our college campuses. Conservative students are being assaulted. Conservative students are being intimidated and harassed.

The demonstrators came to Ottawa’s Parliament Hill — the seat of the nation’s government — to protest or support Motion M-103, potential legislation that condemns “Islamophobia,” without even defining the word. It took about 25 police officers to prevent a full-scale rumble from erupting Tuesday afternoon as the proponents and opponents of the motion met each other with waving placards and angry words. As the two groups yelled threats and obscenities at each other, police had to move in and separate the opposing factions as they started to swing at each other. The protest started peacefully as those against M-103 sat on

The White House warned conservative lawmakers Wednesday that if they vote down the Republican health care bill there is “no Plan B” to repeal and replace Obamacare. “This is it,” said White House press secretary Sean Spicer, adding that there would not be another chance for conservatives to keep their promises to get rid of Obamacare. The bill is headed for a close vote Thursday in the House, where at least two dozen Republicans remain opposed to the legislation, which they describe as “Obamacare Lite.” Still, Mr. Spicer said the president was confident he would live up to his reputation

Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the

Politicians, journalists, tourists and members of the public were among those who became witnesses as a police officer was fatally stabbed and several people were injured on Westminster Bridge.

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.
