Because the Mainstream Media has been so quiet about it, most Americans are still unaware that members of Congress and their staff were granted a secret little exemption from Obamacare and enjoy significant subsidies to keep their own healthcare costs down. That truth now getting out there thanks to readers like you who are making it known to others. Because of that, more and more are now calling for POTUS Trump to eliminate these subsidies so that D.C. politicians can finally begin to feel the true pain of the Obamacare mandates.
This is long overdue.
D.C. Democrats and a handful of Establishment Republicans are working hand-in-hand to destroy the Trump White House. They believe they smell blood and are moving forward to deliver a nationally broadcast blow to the months-old Trump administration.
The new tool in this shed of destruction is just-departed FBI Director James Comey. Among those who are strongly pushing behind the scenes to make this happen is said to be Republican Senator John McCain.
Whispers indicate McCain’s office has been in constant contact with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, another Republican who opposes the Trump presidency, about moving forward with what would be a highly publicized Senate hearing that would highlight testimony from Director Comey in the wake of Mr. Comey’s sudden firing. Highly-placed media figures have already been notified of the plan – one that has joint cooperation between McConnel and his Senate Minority Leader counterpart, Chuck Schumer – a Democrat.
Both McConnell and Schumer’s offices are said to have “significant” contacts within the Trump White House which have been partly responsible for what a recent Drudge Report headline describes as a “flood” of leaks. The leaks and his staff’s inability to form a cohesive message to the public is said to be an increasing frustration for the new President. Reports indicate he has had angry outbursts over his White House staff being unable to push out what he feels is the real political scandal of the time – the Obama administration’s use of federal power to illegally spy on political opponents in order to influence a then-ongoing national election.
An ABC NEWS report out today described the Trump White as “deeply divided” with staff worrying there will be significant blow-back from a now-enraged FBI. This concern has likely been deepened by Congressional Democrats and Republicans telling these same staff far more significant investigations into the Trump White House are coming soon.
Mr. Comey’s firing is to be the starting point of these newly aggressive and far-reaching investigations that may not actually succeed in impeaching Donald Trump, but rather cripple him politically to the point he is unable to move forward with any of his agenda – including healthcare reform and tax reform, thus ensuring the globalist agenda continues on the march unabated.
Watch for this plan to now unfold in the coming days and weeks. While the Trump White House is not yet on life support, it is in the emergency room and the D.C. Establishment is only to happy to help it go down.
UPDATE: It is now being reported that James Comey has REFUSED an offer made to him today (after D.C. Whispers reported that offer would be forthcoming) by members of the Senate to answer questions related to his firing. Comey’s refusal came after President Trump warned Mr. Comey there could be recorded evidence of his recent conversations with the President.
Having learned the pitfalls of placing too much trust in longtime political hacks like House Speaker Paul Ryan to do what they promised they would do, the quick-to-pivot Trump White House has been quietly but forcefully waging a second round attempt at scrapping much of the failing Obamacare legislation in favor of a far more state-directed program that would place the power of the free market back to the consumer and away from the federal government. That effort is set to culminate as early as this week.
Trump White House operatives, namely White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and economic adviser Gary Cohn have spearheaded the outreach effort to critical members of Congress who are necessary for the success of Mr. Trump’s attempt to save the country from the disastrous and costly Obamacare system.
The first attempt weeks earlier fell short in great part because of Speaker Ryan’s inability (some believe it was his intent) to form a Republican coalition between moderates and conservatives. This time, Ryan’s role has been minimized as the Trump White House works directly with members of Congress from both parties to ensure a legislative victory. Priebus represents the link to the GOP establishment while Mr. Cohn has ties to numerous Democrat Party figures. Both are now working under the directive of President Trump to get Congress to start actually working for the American people instead of merely promoting time and again the same tired partisan positions.
If the healthcare bill comes to a vote, a massive overhaul of the nation’s tax system is soon to follow.
The Trump presidency is fighting the political and media establishments head-on and for now, appears to be on his way to winning at least some very important partial victories.
Donald Trump is winning converts to his cause at a remarkable rate. Multiple meetings/sit-downs/social gatherings with D.C. lawmakers have those same lawmakers leaving with vastly improved impressions of the new president.
“He was on top of it. He was energetic.”
That description came from Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma, a critical vote in the upcoming Obamacare reform legislation. It is a common theme for those lawmakers getting to really meet Mr. Trump for the first time, or, for those lawmakers getting to know him better after a tough GOP primary battle.
Such was the case with a dinner President Trump and the First Lady had with former political rival, Senator Ted Cruz and Mrs. Cruz. Senator Cruz will be a valuable source of support among the small but influential conservative faction within the U.S. Senate that also includes Senator Rand Paul. President Trump and Senator Paul have become particularly supportive of one another of late with both men seeming to genuinely admire and respect the other.
It is a kind of presidential outreach that is vastly different from the hands-off legislative approach utilized by former President Obama, who rarely met with lawmakers. Where Trump is increasingly viewed as personable and engaged in the process, Obama remained distant and detached from the work of governing. He was happy to show up for a bill signing ceremony in front of the cameras, or to give prepared speeches on various subjects, but rarely rolled his sleeves up and did the hard work of actual negotiation.
Not so with Mr. Trump who seems even more energized at the prospect of D.C. negotiations. It is a work ethic that the Establishment Media continues to ignore in favor of stories of administration infighting and political conflict. The reality is that the Trump White House, like any transitional phase of a new administration, had some hiccups, but Mr. Trump himself remains focused on the job of Making America Great Again, and is putting in an astonishing amount of time working toward that end.
