AND SO IT BEGINS, THE DISMANTLING OF OBAMACARE … OBAMACARE IS TOAST!!!
Last night the US Senate voted 51-48 to approve a budget resolution that would instruct the House and Senate to initiate legislation that would repeal major parts of Obamacare. And so it begins, the begging of the end of Obamacare. It would appear that Obamacare, the so-called Affordable Care Act, is finally going to be repealed, as the disastrous Barack Obama signature piece of healthcare legislation implodes. Congress looks to do many surgical cuts to eliminate Obamacare as opposed to one swift move, much of which is due to the over-intrusive law itself. President-elect Donald Trump has stated that he wants to repeal and replace Obamacare.
The Senate voted 51 to 48 early Thursday to approve a budget resolution instructing House and Senate committees to begin work on legislation to repeal major portions of the Affordable Care Act. The House is expected to take up the legislation Friday.
Senate Democrats made a late-night show of resistance against gutting the Affordable Care Act by forcing Republicans to take politically charged votes against protecting Medicare, Medicaid and other health-care programs. The measure narrowly passed without the support of any Democrats.
The hours-long act of protest culminated in the early hours of Thursday when Democrats made a dramatic display of rising to speak out against the repeal measure as they cast their votes. The Democrats continued to record their opposition over their objections of Senate Republicans.
In his news conference on Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump insisted that repeal would not occur without a replacement plan. “Obamacare is the Democrats’ problem. We’re going to take the problem off the shelves for them. We’re doing them a tremendous favor,” Trump said.
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman Says the Democratic Party Will Not Win Future Elections if Party Taken Over by Liberal Wing
FORMER DEMOCRAT SENATOR LIEBERMAN SAYS DEMS WILL NOT WIN FUTURE ELECTIONS IF MOONBATS TAKE OVER PARTY …
In the wake of the 2016 elections, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman from Connecticut who ran as a Democrat and Independent stated that the Democrat Party will not win future elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over. He is 100% correct. The Democrat party is no longer the party of Truman or John F. Kennedy. Lieberman said, ”It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to …”. The one time Democrat VP pick by Al Gore is saying that the Democrat party is lurching too far right and losing touch with the American people. However, the Democrat party is moving far left as they had a self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders as a presidential candidate who appealed to nearly half of the party.
The Democrat party that once represented the working class people and the blue color individuals is no longer. Thus the reason why during the 2016 elections Trump not only pierced the Democrat “blue wall” of the Rust Belt, but knocked it down completely. With Donald trump victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin, his message resonated with voters who the Democrats have long forgot.
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) argues the Democratic Party will not win elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over.
“Here is my fear about the future of the Democratic Party. In a way, relatively speaking, Hillary Clinton was representative of … center-left of the Democratic Party, not the pure left,” Lieberman said in a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday.
“Now I think there will be a real attempt by the left-left of the Democratic Party to take over the party, and I don’t think that’s the way to go to make it an effective party,” he continued.
“It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to … it’s not the party that I worked so hard for when Bill Clinton was president and it’s not going to be a winning party.”
Democrats have been grappling with the future of their party following Donald Trump’s upset win over Hillary Clinton last month. Republicans also maintained their majorities in both the House and Senate.
If the Democrats keep up their far left liberal leanings, they are in for a tough 2018 midterm elections. Of the 33 seats up for reelection in the U.S. Senate, Democrats or Independents who caucus with Democrats have 25 seats to defend, Republicans only 8. Nine of those Democrats Senate seats are in red states won by Donald Trump.
Sen. Marco Rubio Rips Barack Obama Statement on Fidel Castro Death … Absolutely “Pathetic” (Update: Kaepernick Booed in Miami on Sunday)
BARACK OBAMA’S PATHETIC STATEMENT REGARDING THE DEATH OF FIDEL CASTRO …
It would appear that Barack Obama never met a socialist he didn’t like. Obama commented on the death of Fidel Castro over the weekend and it was “pathetically” eye-opening. Not one mention of the tyranny and oppression that Castro and his regime inflicted on the good citizens of Cuba. Sen. Marco Rubio (FL-R) ripped Obama for his “pathetic” comments. Of course Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT-S) had no problem with the praise of the ruthless dictator. What else would you expect from a socialist.
“We know that this moment fills Cubans — in Cuba and in the United States — with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation,” Obama said in a statement. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”
Miami Dolphins fans mercilessly booed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Sunday afternoon in Miami.
Kaepernick has been in the news recently after a tense exchange over the merits of recently deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro with a local Florida reporter. Miami, which has a large Cuban population, didn’t let Kaepernick forget about it.
RINO Sen. Kelly Ayotte Bites the Political Dust in New Hampshire … Concedes to Democrat Maggie Hassan
GONE GIRL, RINO CONCEDES IN NEW HAMPSHIRE…
Incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte has conceded the New Hampshire senate election to Democrat Maggie Hassan Wednesday evening. In the end, she lost the vote by a little of a thousand votes, but declined to have a recount. The GOP lost two seats in the past 2016 elections, having had to defend many seats. Many pundits predicted the Republicans would lose control of the Senate in this past election cycle, they got that wrong too. The GOP remains in control of the U.S. Senate 52-48.
GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte conceded to Democrat Maggie Hassan Wednesday evening, declining to pursue a recount in the nation’s closest Senate race and tipping a second seat to Democrats after Tuesday’s election.
Hassan led Ayotte by just 1,019 votes out of more than 738,000 cast, according to the secretary of state’s official tally. The margin was well within the limits for a recount, but Ayotte conceded to Hassan a day after the polls closed.
“I just spoke with Governor Hassan to congratulate her on her election to serve in the U.S. Senate,” Ayotte said in a statement. “I wish Governor Hassan, her husband Tom, and their children Ben and Meg the very best.”
Hassan was one of Senate Democrats’ most prized recruits this year, and Democrats needed every bit of the sitting governor’s popularity to take on Ayotte, who also remained more liked than not by New Hampshire voters throughout the campaign. Both Senate nominees picked up thousands more votes than the two major-party presidential candidates did in the state.
Ayotte’s defeat knocks a rising Republican star — and one of the party’s most prominent women — out of the ranks of GOP elected officials, while adding another female Democratic senator in a key state.
CNN Cuts Ties with DNC Chair Donna Brazile After Wikileaks Email Shows She was Aiding Clinton campaign with Debate Questions … CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable
CNN CUTS TIES WITH DONNA BRAZILE AS SECOND WIKILEAKS EMAILS ARISES THAT SHE TIPPED OFF TEAM HILLARY WITH DEBATE QUESTION.
CNN has cut ties, PC for fired, Donna Brazile after it became known that a second Wikileaks email showed that the CNN contributor and co-DNC chair had provided debate question to Hillary Clinton’s team prior to the debate. The lengths of the collusion and corruption between the media and the Democrat party is simply amazing. The DNC, who is supposed to be impartial during the primaries, was aiding Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders and his supported should be furious! During the Democrat primary Sander stated on many occasions that the system was rigged. Guess what, it was.
I asked this question after the first Email from Donna Brazile was made public by Wikileaks and I will say it again … HOW HAS DONNA BRAZILE NOT BEEN FIRED BY THE DNC? The media and the Democrat party act like this isn’t a big story. America, this is cheating at the highest levels!!!
WHY ISN’T CNN TRYING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS? MY PERSONAL OPINION IS THEY SHOULD BE BANNED FROM DEBATES IN THE FUTURE.
CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable” with hacked emails showing that former contributor and interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile shared questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.
Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, as well as a possible question prior to a CNN town hall, also in March.
In a statement, CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas said that on Oct. 14, the network accepted Brazile’s resignation.
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. [Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.] CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” Pratapas said.
In a tweet, Brazile thanked CNN and her now former colleagues there.
“Thank you @CNN. Honored to be a Democratic Strategist and commentator on the network. Godspeed to all my former colleagues,” she wrote.
A CNN employee, speaking on background, suggested Brazile may have met the woman who was supposed to pose the question about lead poisoning during a service event planned the day before the debate.
