POTUS Trump Disgusted By Congressional Leadership Team (UPDATE)

Today members of Congress will cast their votes for or against the House-proposed Obamacare overhaul legislation. The Paul Ryan bill is a confusing, contradictory thing, largely beholden to the pharmaceutical industry that has donated so generously to his political career. (These same large annual donations apply to other members of the current GOP leadership team in the House and Senate as well.) The vote will be close and the ordeal has given Mr. Trump his first real taste of the deep-rooted, self-serving dysfunction that is Washington D.C.

While improvements to the Ryan bill have been cobbled together via input from other members of Trump and considerable effort via Trump White House representatives, it remains something far less than the sum of its parts from a party that has been promising voters a repeal and replace alternative to Obamacare for seven years – and winning elections because of that promise.

Mr. Trump has publicly given the bill support likely out of a sense of duty that this is for now the best he can get while trying to herd this mewling flock of Congressional cats. Behind the closed doors of the Oval Office, though, he is said to be disgusted by the GOP leadership that has revealed itself to be devoid of the very thing that title demands – leadership.

Via the The New York Times ;

“…He said ruefully this week that he should have done tax reform first when it became clear that the quick-hit health care victory he had hoped for was not going to materialize on Thursday, the seventh anniversary of the act’s passage, when the legislation was scheduled for a vote.

Two of his most influential advisers — Stephen K. Bannon, his chief strategist, and Gary D. Cohn, the National Economic Council director, who had a major role in pushing the bill — came to agree, and did not like the compromise that was emerging. So on Thursday night, Mr. Trump delivered an ultimatum.

He dispatched his budget adviser, Mick Mulvaney, to a conference of House Republicans and told them they had to vote on Friday. And if the bill fails, he said, Mr. Trump will move on.”

Mr. Trump knows Obamacare is a disaster. So do Republicans. And though they won’t admit it publicly, so too do Democrats. The President wanted a “rip the band-aid off quick” approach. Instead, due largely to the complicated machinations of House Speaker Paul Ryan, a version of Obamacare Light was pushed forward which angered the more conservative wing of the party. (And, it is said, many within the Trump White House who couldn’t believe how inept Ryan was proving to be.)

Hoping to salvage some version of reform, Trump went into negotiating mode, spending hours each day personally reaching out to members of Congress from both parties to garner support. He remained cordial with Senator Rand Paul, among the most vocal opponents of the RyanCare bill, and according to some, indicated privately to the Kentucky senator that the bill was in fact a  “pile of sh*t” but that at this point, something was better than nothing, and more work could continue on improving the original version as the year went on.

The New York times indicated that Mr. Trump’s son-and-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, wanted the President to back away from the Ryan proposal altogether soon after it was announced. Kushner knew it was a mess, knew it did too little while pitting conservative Republicans against moderates, and would stall the Trump agenda.

It appears Mr. Kushner was right.

Trump is left today trying to push an 11th hour success for what is, an already less-than-successful bit of legislation that will get further trampled when it is shipped off to the Senate side. Even if he pulls off this messy partial political victory in the House, it has left a very sour taste in his mouth.

Donald Trump is one who is willing to forgive, but he never forgets. He is learning a great deal about how things don’t work in D.C. Paul Ryan is a big reason for this dysfunction. Ryan appears to be doing what some very deep pockets sent him back to D.C. to do: Stall the Trump agenda until 2020 when they can be rid of him.


UPDATE: House Speaker Paul Ryan traveled to the White House today to inform President Trump the RyanCare legislation lacked the votes for passage in the House. Mr. Trump is said to have shrugged off the failure while with Mr. Ryan, and then quickly reached out to media to indicate Obamacare will fail of its own accord soon which will in turn force Democrats to have to make a deal. That might be true, but today’s failure is a significant setback for the Trump agenda as it has dominated the efforts of both the White House and deeply divided Republicans in Congress. At the very least, it is a particularly dark mark against Speaker Ryan who is now a wounded Speaker with declining leverage among his own caucus.

Look for the President to now quickly pivot to two issues he is now even more motivated than ever to see succeed – tax reform and the border wall. Apparently, he is already working the phones on those issues this evening. For Mr. Trump today has been  hard lesson. It will be interesting to see if he’s a quick learner.


Rand Paul Walks Out On Paul Ryan Obamacare Meeting: GOP Elite Refusing Repeal & Replace

It was a testy gathering among those within the GOP who are determined to keep the promise to repeal and replace Obamacare against other GOP members who are now urging a delay and delay some more, alternative.

It should also be noted that what is happening now is exactly what was foretold here weeks earlier by D.C. Whispers first:

Ryan Works With Pelosi & Schumer To Stall Trump Economic Recovery

The above scenario is now being confirmed via a report out today by Politico:

“Republicans have reached a gut check moment: After spending more than six years vowing to fix the flagging patient that is Obamacare, it’s the GOP’s own repeal effort that’s on life support.

“…I hear things that are unacceptable to me,” Paul said in an interview afterward. “If they don’t seem to care what conservatives think about complete repeal of Obamacare, they’re going to be shocked when they count the votes.”

What House Speaker Paul Ryan is pushing for (with a behind-closed door assist from House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer) is a mild band-aid approach that he hopes will allow Republicans to declare victory without actually engaging in an actual fight to repeal and replace as they have repeatedly promised since the divisive bill was signed into law several years ago.

It’s politics as usual for Speaker Ryan and those supporting him in D.C. – the very thing President Trump remarked on often while on the campaign trail – all talk and no action politicians:


Yet More Evidence Of GOP Establishment’s Opposition To Trump Agenda Confirmed

Two weeks ago, D.C. Whispers went live with the following report:

Ryan Works With Pelosi & Schumer To Stall Trump Economic Recovery

Matt Drudge was quick to second that concern. Today, Drudge has done so again, linking to yet another story that further confirms the original D.C. Whispers heads up:

Check out this commentary from an AP morning report:


…Republicans know they’ll need tons of cash, whatever they devise. The figure is currently unknown.

“Whatever we do in replacement is going to cost some money, and is there a way to generate money if we ditch all the Obamacare tax revenues or not? That’s where we haven’t achieved consensus,” said No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas…’They’re in a hell of a bind,’ said Joseph Antos, health policy expert at the conservative American Enterprise Institute.”


Disregard the now-repeated claims by GOP lawmakers regarding how “tough” it is to dismantle Obamacare. Remember, they have been running on dismantling Obamacare for YEARS. They have promised to do so. They have raised campaign cash from small donors saying they would do so. Since Obamacare became law, Republicans have been demanding it be repealed and replaced.

And yet, now these same Republicans are claiming to have no plan, no idea on how to proceed with doing just that after voters have given them all of Congress and the White House to do so.

Let that sink in, reader.

And it’s the same delay/it’s too hard/complicated tactic these GOP elites intend to continue using for much of the Trump agenda. If Donald Trump is to have any chance of overcoming all of Washington D.C. and the media elite, he needs YOU, the American people to afford him the chance to do so. For if there is one thing the D.C. elite fear most, it’s seeing their political careers sent packing.

2018 already draws near.


WOW: VP-Elect Mike Pence: “Obamacare Has Failed.”

VP-Elect Mike Pence didn’t mince words when he just stepped before the media after a meeting with Congressional leaders and declared, “Obamacare has failed and that the Trump administration’s first order of business will be to deal with that failure.

Mr. Pence went on to outline plans to “repeal and replace” Barack Obama’s namesake legislation, a move that would be a stunning blow to the outgoing president’s legacy.

GTY 630952434 A POL USA DC

Pence met with Republican lawmakers just minutes after President Obama did the same on the Democrat side. Mr. Obama is desperate to convince Democrats to do everything they can to keep Obamacare intact, despite recent polling that shows the healthcare law remains unpopular with a majority of the American people as health-plan costs skyrocket and choices continue to be eliminated.

Pence reaffirmed President-Elect Trump’s promise to “repeal and replace” Obamacare with what Mr. Pence called “market based” solutions that would allow people more choice, lower costs, and superior healthcare plans.

Here is video of some of Mr. Pence’s words on the subject today. Keep in mind, he spoke to the media just minutes after Barack Obama had left Congress, making it a particularly stinging rebuke of the president’s failed landmark legislation:


LOL: Watch Stuttering Mess Nancy Pelosi Fail To Defend Obamacare

The freshly tossed hair did nothing to hide the mental collapse underneath that newly-colored dome as Democrat relic Nancy Pelosi stuttered and stammered her way through a seemingly panicked explanation on why the disastrous Obamacare legislation has been “healthy” for America. You can almost hear the collective “Oh-my-gods” from the people standing behind her.

The Democrat Party has become a place where failed ideologies go to die, as this video so clearly shows…


Trump’s Latest Cabinet Appointment Seeks To Dismantle Obamacare ASAP

Republican Rep. Tom Price from Georgia is both a politician and a highly experienced orthopedic surgeon who has been among the most vocal and consistent critics of Obamacare, a legislative monstrosity that Price feels is denying Americans access to healthcare and forcing them, under fear of penalty, to pay for increasingly expensive health insurance they don’t want or need.

Today it is being reported Congressman Price is to be the nation’s next Secretary of Health and Human Services – a Trump pick that should send an undeniably clear signal to Congress and the American people that Donald Trump is very serious about taking on the trillions of dollars Obamacare mess.


Healthcare Costs See Largest Year Over Year Price Increase In 34 Years.


The Obama economy is an era of stagnant wages and skyrocketing medical costs which are decimating Middle Class America.

One of the quickest ways to destroy America is to eliminate its middle class.

It appears the Obama era is working double-time to do just that:

“Prices for medicine, doctor appointments and health insurance rose the most last month since 1984…a recent report by Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits forecasts that the average family health care plan will cost $18,142, up 3.4% from 2015. That’s faster than wage growth in America…Premiums on the Obamacare exchanges are expected to rise by double-digits this year.”

In November, voters will have a choice.

Hillary Clinton represents more of the same: Fewer jobs, lower wages, bigger government, higher healthcare costs.

Donald Trump represents something vastly different than the above.

America, it’s almost time to choose.


Obamacare Is Collapsing

This week Aetna, among the nation’s largest healthcare providers, announced it was slashing its Obamacare participation by 70% after determining the program was decimating its ability to provide higher quality, lower cost healthcare coverage to its members.

In a press release that accompanied the announcement, Aetna described the Obamacare model as, “unsustainable.”

The signals of Barack Obama’s signature legislation’s imminent doom have been swirling for many months, and well known by both political figures and Mainstream Media who have largely ignored the issue for fear it would play a part in swaying voter-sentiment prior to the 2016 Election.

Hillary Clinton has repeatedly gone on record indicating her total support for Obamacare, even as healthcare insiders across the nation warned the program was in a steady downward spiral.

Aetna isn’t alone in its condemnation of the Obamcare. Other healthcare giants like Humana and United Healthcare have indicated their intention to slash their own cooperation in the government program, the result of which will be potentially millions of existing plans being terminated in 2017.

This summer, millions of Obamacare plans are seeing double-digit cost increases, pricing many individuals and families out of affordable healthcare coverage and confirming what so many warned of years earlier – Obamacare would prove to be neither affordable or offer adequate coverage, leaving tens of millions of Americans paying more and getting less.

The Obama White House’s initial response has been to say Aetna’s reduced participation will not alter Obamacare’s longer-term outlook. Then again, Barack Obama’s days in the White House are quickly coming to an end. Donald Trump has promised voters he would “repeal and replace Obamacare.” If voters decide to make him President, Obamacare will most likely be resigned to the scrap heap of trillion-dollar political failures.

MUST READ: Obamacare Loophole White House Doesn’t Want You To Know About…

Pay even more money for not buying something you don’t want.

Welcome to Obama’s America…

Troubling news for all those struggling to pay for their health insurance.

If you are unable to pay for that health insurance, the penalty for not doing so is going up – substantially.

It is an odd thing to see the federal government mandating something millions don’t have the money to buy and then increasing the monetary penalty from the very people who don’t have the money to pay it.

According to a just released MSNBC report, many Middle Class families are now looking at a non-compliance Obamacare penalty that is approaching $1500.  The poorest of families will see the penalty DOUBLE to over $700.

Ah, but guess what?

The law as written has no actionable consequences for not paying the penalty.

That’s right – unless Mr. Obama decides to break the law (which he has already proven more than willing to do) the IRS has no real authority to make you pay. Even taking some or all of your refund to pay the non-compliance penalty is an uncertain possibility as outlined earlier this year by Forbes:

…So what would the penalty for noncompliance be? Jail time? Nope. The language in the Act specifically rules out jail time, saying at Section 500A(g)(2)(A):

In the case of any failure by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure.

The Forbes report then goes on to explain the IRS has no wage garnishment authority or tax lien authority related to Obamacare either. It is literally a tax for which taxpayers are not required to pay with no real penalties for not doing so.

Even the threat of the IRS taking some or all of your tax refund is appears uncertain:

“…Real consequences? Other than that potential refund seizure and a guilty conscience, there’s nothing to keep taxpayers from opting out of paying.”

Now here is where people have a legitimate power they didn’t know about because both the Mainstream Media and its political cohorts in Congress and the White House have been keeping that power under wraps.

Obamacare will likely collapse in very short order if people refuse to sign up for Obamacare, and then also refuse to pay the penalty for not doing so. And if a Republican takes the White House in 2016, this death spiral will no doubt be further uninhibited and thus, accelerated to the benefit of all.

What say you, America? Feel like going to war against tyranny without having to fire a shot?




Apocalyptic Fiction: RACE WARS: Episodes 1-2: An Apocalyptic Fiction SHTF Prepper Survival Series...


Valerie Jarrett Just Called For Everyone To, “Join The Masses!”

The call to action took place within the last hour and was in regards to a statistic the longtime Senior White House Adviser touts as proof that Obamacare is working as 17.6 million are said to have enrolled into the program.

Ignoring for a moment the socialist clarion call that is the, “Join the masses!” phrase, one has to assume Ms. Jarrett is fully aware of how misleading the 17.6 million enrollment figure truly is.

Last year an updated CBO report indicated up to 10 million Americans will LOSE their former healthcare plans due to Obamacare. This same report warned Obamacare will leave some 32 million uninsured, a nearly ten million uninsured increase from earlier estimates.

Millions who have been forced onto Obamacare find themselves with more expensive, but less accepted health coverage, particularly when it comes to specialist healthcare coverage. Millions more have been pushed onto Medicaid, again a program deemed by many to be inferior to previous private insurance plans.

The administration doesn’t go into details as to exactly who represents the 17.6 million figure they are now touting, but we know likely up to HALF of that 17.6 million are people who lost their previous coverage because of Obamacare and then had no choice but to sign up for the program.

Last year a CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) report indicated nearly 1 MILLION illegals signed up to Obamacare, despite the Obama administration’s earlier promise that that very thing would not happen.

That 1 million figure is most likely being counted as part of the 17.6 million the Obama White House is now claiming to have “enrolled” in Obamacare.

By that very then, the most honest portrayal of Obamacare is a 2 TRILLION dollar program to enroll approximately six million Americans into lower quality health insurance that many medical specialists refuse to honor.

~17.6M Americans have gained coverage as provisions have taken effect. Join the masses! Open Enrollment begins 11/1   

And guess what? Valerie Jarrett doesn’t use Obamacare for her own medical insurance coverage!

Apparently she wasn’t too keen on, “joining the masses…”

Obama White House “Giddy” Over Prospect Of Healthcare Chaos…

Either the Supreme Court will rule in favor of the Obamacare subsidies or it will rule against them.

Regardless, the Obama Machine is said to be fully prepared to pounce on whatever ruling the Court hands down this month and use it to its own advantage…

Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett are reportedly giddy over the prospect of having the Supreme Court striking down the subsidy program in a number of states across the nation. Chaos within the healthcare system will soon follow, and with the help of the Mainstream Media, the White House is fully prepared to then place all blame for the problems upon the Republican controlled Congress and anyone else who spoke out against Obamacare.

Look for stories of people unable to receive needed medical attention, claims of deaths due to the ruling, and a president unleashed upon all those who challenged a law called by his own name.

So says a D.C. political operative who now warns of a  Republican leadership oddly silent on what could soon be a disastrous political outcome for them that would be easily manipulated to favor the Democrats as the country prepares to once again cast votes in 2016.

“If the subsidies stand, he (the president) takes another victory lap. If the subsidies are struck down, he takes a far more high profile victory lap as he points to all of the short term problems that will result as the system breaks apart. If there was any time in our history where a majority of Americans would demand single-payer, it would be at that moment.”



Once that takes place, the socialist-progressive transformation of America will be complete…
