Donald Trump’s most fervent supporters are less confident of his leadership on health care even though they still overwhelmingly support him as president, the latest Bloomberg National Poll shows. As Trump calls on the U.S. Senate to pass legislation repealing and replacing Obamacare, 60 percent of all poll respondents said they think it’s unrealistic that a bill lowering premiums and covering more people will be passed in the next several years. At the same time, health care ranked as the most important issue facing the country, ahead of jobs, terrorism and immigration. Health-insurance companies and drug companies fared
Comments: Repealing 0bamaCare is a high priority to get our economic stimuli for jobs back on track. Right now, the dRATS are playing the GOP. If we replace, they win, no matter how it´s worded. If we leave 0bamaCare alone, they should get the blame for its failure, not ours to "replace" it. get it, congresscritters? Quit playing their game. You´re suppose to be in charge (and smarter than that) to fall in their trap.
Polls lie, period. They are used to advance an agenda of the organization who hired the polster.
L.dotters have seen this happen before, including me and have written about it right here, repeatedly. They are honest-to-goodness fake new, not even worth the waste of time to read ANY article touting "polls" as the basis of anything. They are tools of propoganda and manipulation.
And yeah, Hillary DIDN´t win...nor did Ossof or any of the other shoe-ins from pollings numbers.
They are lies.
Find me the Trump supporter who now has dedicded he/she WANTS Obamacare. Yeah, right.
#1, I do believe it´s time to retire the outmoded term(s) RINO (RHINO) and to modernize to "Fake Republicans". After all we should keep up with the times and a variant off of President Trump´s "Fake News" seems to be very appropriate to me.

New York - Children whose sexual characteristics don’t neatly align with the norm have for decades faced surgery to rearrange their anatomy to resemble that of more typical boys and girls — long before they were old enough to have a say in the decision. But now the practice is under assault, as never before. The American Medical Association is considering a proposal discouraging it. Three former U.S. surgeons general say it’s unjustified. And on Tuesday, Human Rights Watch and InterACT — a group advocating for intersex youth — are releasing a detailed report assailing the practice and urging Congress to ban it.

They are as bad as ratings challenged [CNN]. Lobbyist for Amazon and taxes?” he continued. He appeared to be referencing an article about his decision to end a CIA program that backed Syrian rebels.
More than 1,400 Iraqi nationals who the federal government targeted for immediate deportation will get their day in court, a federal judge in Detroit ruled on Monday.

Trump added, "We shouldn´t leave town until this is complete, until this bill is on my desk."
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said Monday that it isn’t congressional Republicans’ role to defend President Trump from the investigations into Russian election interference and pushed back against the notion that special counsel Robert Mueller is biased against the president.

Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House intelligence committee was asked for his reaction to those comments. Well, I had a couple of impressions,” Schiff told CBS´s "Face the Nation." “First, the president is clearly worried that Bob Mueller is going to be looking into allegations, for example, that the Russians may have laundered money through the Trump Organization. That is really something, in

Former President Jimmy Carter predicted the U.S. will eventually transition to a government-run health care system while addressing his church congregation Sunday. “I think eventually we’ll have a single-payer system,” Carter said while speaking to a large crowd before teaching his Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., according to the Wall Street Journal.

In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be - in his view - “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch. "I think it´s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake
President Trump´s recent comments undermining Attorney General Jeff Sessions came off as unprofessional to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who may depart his post sooner than expected, according to a report. Trump went after Sessions, his first congressional endorser and a longtime advisor, for having recused himself from oversight of the FBI´s Russia probe, speaking during a New York Times interview last week. ´I think is very unfair to the president,´ Trump said. ´It´s extremely unfair, and that´s a mild word, to the president,´ Trump said in reference to the nation´s top law enforcement officer.
