Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he was abandoning efforts to pass a bill to “repeal and replace” Obamacare after it lost support in the Senate. Instead, he will endorse a bill to fully repeal the law and give Congress two years to create a replacement. [So far no one has had the courage and wisdom to suggest that government should stay out of health care altogether, but this rejection of Obamacare could be a start in that direction.] –GEG

GOP Senators Jerry Moran (Kansas) and Mike Lee (Utah) announced Monday night that they will not be supporting the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare

Now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is moving toward a full repeal of Obamacare and will leave Congress two years to create a replacement.

The statement came late Monday evening after the support for the bill collapsed.

The Examiner reported:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell late Monday announced he was abandoning efforts to pass a bill to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, and said he would instead push a bill to fully repeal the law and give Congress two years to figure out a replacement.

He announced that major shift in strategy after GOP support for a repeal and replace strategy collapsed in the Senate.

McConnell, R-Ky., said he would take up a House health bill that passed the lower chamber in May, but with the first amendment being a 2015 repeal bill that gutted Obamacare.

“Regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful,” he said in a statement.

This is what President Trump suggested after the news earlier tonight.
Repeal the law now — replace it later

New TV Series Pranks Celebrities into Making Outrageous Statements

July 19, 2018 Youtube 1

In a new TV series on Showtime, Sacha Baron Cohen poses as a TV journalist or film producer and, in that disguise, lures celebrities into making outrageous statements on camera or endorsing outrageous proposals. Famous figures caught in the trap include former Congressman Joe Walsh, Senator Bernie Sanders, Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former VP Dick Cheney, and Larry Pratt, former head of Gun Owners of America. Cheney was given a waterboard to sign and actually did it. In two episodes, Cohen posed as a gun-rights advocate from Israel who wanted to interview Walsh and Pratt on the advantages of teaching gun safety and shooting skills to children as well as adults. Not suspecting that they were being lured into a trap, they both concurred with Cohen’s suggestion that kids are never too young to learn these things. When he said they should be taught starting at sixteen all the way down to three, they foolishly agreed. From that moment, forward, the thrust of the episode was that these men want to give loaded guns to three-year-olds. […]

“Senate Drops Obamacare Replacement, Congress May Simply Repeal and Start with Clean Slate” I am loathed to mention, just in passing, that the “Senat”ors took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution.” That includes the part commonly referred to as “the 10th Amendment,” which states the following: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Each of you Senators who supported anything outside of the Federal government’s purview, which includes “healthcare” or the like, has violated your Oath of… Read more »
