GOP senators make last-ditch bid to repeal ObamaCare

Source: The Hill




BY PETER SULLIVAN - 09/13/17 06:00 AM EDT

A small group of Republican senators will make a last-ditch effort at repealing ObamaCare on Wednesday, taking a final shot before a deadline expires at the end of the month.

The plan faces extremely long odds, but Senate GOP leadership is not fully ruling it out, though leaders are taking a decidedly hands-off approach.

The GOP faces a deadline of Sept. 30 before the fast-track authority to pass a bill without needing Democratic votes expires. The White House has signaled support, but it is far from clear whether that is enough.

So far, the only senators backing the measure are Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Dean Heller (R-Nev.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

2. I just had a conference call last night about this.

Congressmember Barbara Lee (D-CA) told us that this would be announced and that they will try to appeal the ACA with the Graham Cassidy Bill today. We need to call Congress AGAIN and AGAIN!

(202)224-3121.

The GOP has apparently been buying votes (what else is new with these evil bastards) to get it passed within the next two weeks when the calendar runs out. They can claim at least one legislative victory for the year (Gorsuch doesn't count since he is illegitimate). McCain already likes the bill which was listed as a repeal option in July when they voted last time. No thumbs down from him this go around. This is very serious and we must act in a fast and powerful way. Spread the word...call, call, CALL!

3. I'm confused

I thought the once per year 51 reconciliation vote was used already?

4. They're using the double secret probation option that nobody knows about


Hell, I'm as confused as everyone on this. Two things are certain though, 45* will stop at nothing to eviscerate anything associated with President Obama, and gopers will stop at nothing to screw working class Americans if it means more money for the rich.
