Sources: Graham Wrote Repeal
Bill To Cater To Murkowski

Daily Caller, by Robert Donachie

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/21/2017 6:11:45 PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina specifically wrote his bill to repeal and replace Obamacare to provide concessions to Sen. Lisa Murkowki’s home state of Alaska, a conservative Hill staffer with first hand knowledge and one conservative strategist told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The Independent Journal reported Thursday afternoon that Graham and Cassidy were trying to “buy” Murkowski’s vote through a series last-minute changes to their repeal bill before the legislation is expected to go up for a vote next week. Sources told TheDCNF that Graham did not sell the bill to conservatives as trying to

Comments:
How disgusting. You knew that little crapweasel sure as heck wouldn´t draft a bill kowtowing to a conservative. Allegedly she is one of the holdouts of this bill. Is she playing some sick, stupid game then? I didn´t know I could despise politicians any more than I do now. I´ve never seen such horrific behavior in my entire life. I know politics has always been bad, but this takes the cake. The thought that any of them care about their constituents or this country is a total and complete joke.

I am so fed up with these "Republican" extortionists who demand concessions for their state in order to be appeased enough to do the right thing. They think and act like Democrat thugs. And I long for the day when they will get their just rewards...

No problem. "Bribe" away. Don´t care how it gets done, just get rid of it. Would have paid a lot more in "lawful" political bribes to stop it in the first place.

Please!! This is how ALL legislation is done. Yes, I think they should change it to make Rand Paul happier (remove all coverage requirements) Actually, if the Obamacare doesn´t specify that coverage requirements are "determined by the Secretary of HHS" then they should be.

You know what´s funny? Cuomo, the demonrat libtard governor of NY is having a hissy fit too because he´ll have to pony up even more money for his gold-plated Medicaid voting base. And I mean gold-plated. It pays for everything including diapers. All he has in his corner is Chuckie and Jellobrand, who would be neutered in the vote. He wants to run for President and can´t afford to cut back Medicaid for his voting base. He won´t be able to dole out free money from his ´let the good times roll from Wall Street taxes´ either. And if he hikes taxes, he´s done for. Too bad; so sad.

You are exactly right, #12. Playing the game with OPM is a delicate balancing act but the point is eventually reached when the owners of the OPM begin to realize that the gimmedats have no interest in giving back anything that is already on their gift list, they keep expecting the gifts to get bigger and now Santa Claus is in a real bind. California and Illinois are beyond the point of no return but New York is quickly catching up.

A federal investigation launched in 2016 into possible bank fraud by Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, is still underway -- with “a potential” grand jury review possible. The probe could thwart Sanders’ 2020 presidential ambitions -- as well as the Vermont political plans of Jane Sanders´ daughter, Carina Driscoll. Individuals questioned by the FBI confirmed to Fox News that the investigation was still open, with FBI agents interviewing at least one witness within the last six weeks. Jane Sanders is under investigation following a land deal she clinched when she was president of Burlington College in Vermont

Those looking to celebrate "Resist-mas" now have the perfect accessory: a Hillary Clinton tree topper. The newly-released 3D-sculpted ornament features the former first lady "in her iconic power suit with angelic wings." The tree topper sells for $107 for a standard-size tree and more than $900 for a tree taller than 10 feet. U.K.-based Women to Look Up To is selling the item, along with similar ones to honor Beyonce and Serena Williams.

The Justice Department has launched a federal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices and the sale of fetal tissue. In a letter first obtained by Fox News, Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd formally requested unredacted documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the same panel that led the congressional probe into the women’s health organization. “The Department of Justice appreciates the offer of assistance in obtaining these materials, and would like to request the Committee provide unredacted copies of records contained in the report, in order to further the Department’s ability to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of

Fox News For Comparing FBI to

Last night during an appearance on Fox News’ Hannity, anchor Gregg Jarrett went full conspiracist on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, likening the FBI to the KGB while saying the Bureau has become, “America’s secret police.” Host Sean Hannity completely endorsed Jarrett’s tirade, stating it was “not hyperbole.” In a panel discussion on CNN’s The Lead this afternoon, former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) took some pointed shots at Fox News and Jarrett for pushing that level of conspiratorial rhetoric about the FBI. “I can’t tell you how dangerous this is,” Rogers, a former FBI official, told anchor Jake Tapper.

Judge recuses in Michael Flynn case

President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, will face a different judge to be sentenced than the one who took Flynn’s guilty plea to a felony false statement charge last week, court records show. Judge Emmet Sullivan was randomly assigned to take over the case after Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself. A court spokeswoman confirmed to POLITICO that the reassignment of the case was due to Contreras´ recusal, but did not immediately respond to a query about the reason. Sullivan is an appointee of President Bill Clinton, while Contreras was appointed by President Barack Obama. Flynn pleaded guilty last Friday to a

The House Ethics Committee on Thursday cleared Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, of allegations that he disclosed classified information earlier this year. Nunes was forced to step aside from the helm of the committee’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including alleged collusion with President Donald Trump’s allies, in the wake of his March statement that members of the Trump transition team had their communications legally monitored by the U.S. intelligence community. The Ethics Committee, however, announced Thursday that it would close its investigation following consultation with experts in the classification process, a step that

Wray said he was not prepared to discuss applications tied to the FISA process, but Jordan pressed on.

WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Democrats are still unwilling to leave for the holidays without a DACA fix, declaring today that "we´re not going to turn this country into a reign of terror of domestic enforcement ...and have the DREAMers pay that price." Thirty-four House Republicans sent a letter Tuesday to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) calling for a solution to save 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals beneficiaries from deportation before the end of the year. Pelosi said at her weekly press conference today that a DACA agreement is one of Democrats´ priorities, but "Democrats are not

Former Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-Tenn.) was fired from his job at Morgan Stanley after an investigation into a harassment complaint from a female co-worker, HuffPost reported Thursday. The woman, who requested to remain anonymous, alleged that Ford forcibly grabbed her one evening in Manhattan several years ago. She also accused Ford of harassment and intimidation, according to HuffPost. A spokeswoman for Morgan Stanley confirmed Ford’s firing, telling the news outlet he was terminated “for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies.” The report comes amid a wave of sexual misconduct allegations in recent weeks against prominent politicians.

Rumors that the Republican National Committee was built on the site of an ancient moron burial ground gained new credence this week when it confirmed that it was renewing its support for Alabama´s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. I shouldn’t joke, because the worst thing about the RNC’s decision isn’t the stupidity — though the stupidity is real, and spectacular — but the moral obscenity. Last month, the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled out of their joint fundraising agreements because Moore had been credibly accused by several women of having preyed upon them when they were teenagers,

WASHINGTON — John Conyers III, who was endorsed by his father on Tuesday to succeed him in the House, was arrested in February after his girlfriend suffered knife cuts during an argument. Mr. Conyers, in an interview Wednesday, tried to head off a possibly disqualifying scandal just a day after his father resigned from Congress amid multiplying allegations of sexual harassment. As issues of sexual harassment and abuse roil Washington, any violent altercation against a woman could doom his effort to take the seat that his father held since 1965. The younger Mr. Conyers said that the couple began arguing around 3

How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was

At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.” The stock market has gained about 30 percent in value since

Sen. Al Franken took a quick glance up at a jam-packed Senate press gallery as he entered the chamber Thursday, preparing to ask Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan, who was presiding over the chamber, to allow him to make the speech that would end his political career. A senator who has long dodged questions from reporters, he finally had one for them. "Ready?" And with that, Franken, D-Minn., set out on his farewell address to the Senate — a 12-minute speech where he continued to proclaim his innocence against eight women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.
