ObamaCare déjà vu? Moderates extracting
‘payoffs’ for vote on health bill

Fox News, by By Brooke Singman

Original Article

Posted By:iamshazzam, 7/17/2017 6:10:53 PM

Even with the Senate health care bill on hold pending the return of a key lawmaker, moderate Republicans already have extracted what critics call "payoffs" from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in exchange for their support. Those familiar with the process, even from the other side of the aisle, told Fox News “this is how things get done.” But the sweeteners are reminiscent of the wheeling and dealing then-Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., did to pass ObamaCare, which Republicans criticized at the time.

Comments:
Why don´t they just "kill the bill?" There is NO provision in our constitution that makes "health care" a right.

Kill it. Kill it and bury it with shovel and then bury the shovel.

Our givernment does not have a constitutional right to utilize my tax dollars to pay for another persons health care!! It is time our elected officials, those who now hold the majority, thanks to us, get their act together and bring our government back to a constitutional government. Stop this madness! If they want to dedicate dollars to health care, take all the "supposed global warming" dollars they have confiscated on a lie, and put those in a fund to take care of people who can´t (or won´t) take care of themselves.

Good for you, #3. We are so disgusted with this circus! Republicans in Congress (House & Senate) better abide by Republican principles and stop being part of the swamp.

Another example of Republican "leaders" simply being "Democrat lite". The UniParty is exactly that.

I think they should say, " If you like Obamacare you can keep your Obamacare", "If you like paying a penalty for not having Obamacare you can keep paying a penalty for not having it". If you can find an insurer to cover you. (sarcasm on)
I think all those who love Obamacare should be able to keep it, they think it is so good, especially all the politicians who have the best care there is should have been mandated to have Obamacare ever since it was passed.

It´s called politics, and the only way you get to a consensus is to make adjustments and make concessions.

Like the old saying, you shouldn´t watch laws or sausage being made, both process are not pretty.

Politics is the art of the possible, no matter how much I don´t like the damned bill, it is probably the best that we can get with this particular set of RINOs.

I´ll take any baby step on the right direction and come back next year for more.

#7 - the problem with your post is: "consensus" with the democrats means doing it their way. We didn´t vote this last election to keep "getting along" with the democrats. Plus, the republicans will never take the next step. Instead, like dumbo´s, they will think they need to give in to democrats in order to win democrat votes. Never gonna happen! Stay true to our base and they will remain in congress. Give in and we will vote them out!

Why should the Soviet Party and the Repuke Party repeal anything? THEY ARE EXEMPT! They´ve got the best health care in the world. As long as they are exempt ... pffffft! Who cares? Let the surfs eat cake... and die!

Jeb Bush slammed Republicans Saturday for giving President Trump a free pass on Russia — while blasting President Obama for the same thing. “If your opponent does things that … your head explodes on … then when your guy does the same thing, have the same passion to be critical,” the former Florida governor fumed at Ozy Fest, a Central Park festival hosted by the digital news magazine Ozy. Jeb’s jab appeared to be a thinly veiled reference to GOP leadership going easy on Trump for not criticizing Russia for its alleged meddling in U.S. elections. Trump has deflected criticism

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is urging South Carolinians to vote against him when they disagree with his support for a national amnesty plus a greater inflow of foreign workers to take Americans’ jobs. “To the people who object to this, I don’t want you to vote for me because I cannot serve you well,” he said in a Capitol Hill press conference July 20. He continued: The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the [2 million younger illegals] ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend [President] Ronald Reagan

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was promoted to White House press secretary Friday, and it didn’t take long for liberals to attack her appearance and politics. While Sanders is just the third woman to serve as press secretary — following Dee Dee Myers and Dana Perino — some questioned the idea that Sanders’ ascension is a win for feminism. Mediaite published an article shortly after the promotion announcement that accused Sanders of “hurting women.”

While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen. John McCain has irreversible brain cancer hit me harder than any such news since I sat in a seventh-grade classroom and our science teacher ran down the hall shouting, “The president’s been shot.” That president, JFK, was a war hero, too, but not one of McCain’s stature. Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the

Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn

The last Republican to run against Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) called on him to step down "as quickly as possible" following his Wednesday cancer diagnosis. Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) in the 2018 Republican primary and made her comments about McCain on an Indiana talk radio show Thursday, CNN reports. A surgeon and former state senator, Ward argued that advancing the federal government´s business and President Donald Trump´s agenda gave McCain reason to step aside. "I hope that Senator McCain is going to look long and hard at this, that his family and

Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau resigned on Friday at the request of the city´s mayor, who said that she and the community had lost confidence in Harteau following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman. The death of Sydney native Justine Damond, 40, from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen fired through the open window of a police patrol car, has outraged her family members and the Australian public. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called it "shocking" and "inexplicable." Mayor Betsy Hodges said in a written statement that she and Harteau agreed on Friday that Harteau would step

Deep State leaked top secret information on Friday to The Washington Post in their continued attempt to destroy the Trump administration. The latest leaks prove the Obama administration was spying on the Trump campaign. President Trump tweeted on Barack Obama’s illegal spying on his political opponents in 2016. POTUS Trump tweeted this in March. (Tweet) Since that time we now know that the FBI was investigating the Trump Tower servers during the election. We also know Susan Rice lied at first but then admitted when she got caught that she was unmasking her political opponents phone calls. Rice blamed racism after

The lead voice actor for The Emoji Movie insisted in an interview Thursday that the movie is a very, very important way of fighting President Donald Trump´s administration, rather than just a film about talking faces. Sitting down with HuffPost, comedic actor T.J. Miller trashed his former co-workers on HBO´s "Silicon Valley," saying they did not do enough to stop Trump. "Right before the election … I asked, ‘How much money did you donate, you Hollywood elites? How much did you donate to Hillary Clinton´s campaign?´" he recounted. "And everybody in the cast said nothing. They hadn´t given a dollar."

WASHINGTON- U.S. investigators examining money laundering accusations against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort hope to push him to cooperate with their probe into possible collusion between Trump´s campaign and Russia, two sources with direct knowledge of the investigation said. Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is examining Manafort´s financial and real estate records in New York as well as his involvement in Ukrainian politics, the officials said. Between 2006 and 2013, Manafort bought three New York properties, including one in Trump Tower in Manhattan. He paid for them in full and later took out mortgages against them. A

Mueller sent what is called “a document preservation request,” asking that Team Trump save “any subjects discussed in the course of the June 2016 meeting” and also “any decisions made regarding the recent disclosures about the June 2016 meeting,” CNN reported, citing a source. “As you are aware the Special
