Glad you agree with me Todd that it took more than McCain for Trump to lose on healthcare

Paul Emery

There were three Pubs that voted against it Todd.

While some in our nation worry about straws at McDonalds:

Even India can destroy a satellite. If a few key satellites go 'missing' and we have an EMP 'event' we won't fear China, we'll invite them in to save us.
Won't they be just too happy to oblige.

Things could get interesting - or not.
In 1939 the Germans were developing jet aircraft and we still had biplanes. Geography was our friend, but we can no longer count on that.
Of course, our newer generation is woke - so I'm sure our enemies are really impressed with that.

Yeah Todd. McCain all by his own "pettiness". Anyone who supports Trump loses the privilege to use that word.

Walt

Yet LIB news gets a pass.
https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/04/02/house-democrats-want-oversight-over-fox-news-editorial-decisions/
"House Committee on Oversight and Reform chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) wrote to former Fox News reporter Diana Falzone last month demanding that she turn over any documents relating to Trump’s alleged extramarital affairs."

How COMMIE of them.

Paul Emery charmingly, even winningly sez: "Pubs have no viable plan to replace Obamacare."

Of course not. Obamacare isn't viable, no new plans are viable. All new plans have to meet the needs of everyone. Marginal healthcare treatments are covered, end of life treatment isn't cut back, doctors/nurses/etc. don't take a 50% haircut in pay, poor people get insurance for free, illegal aliens get insurance for free, middle class gets insurance for far less than what it costs, drug companies don't cut back on R&D, paperwork and approval still has to get done by somebody, population continues ageing.

Oh wait! I know! MEDICARE FOR EVERYONE!!! lol. What BS.

Again, a quick question. How many years between age 21 and 65 did you buy your own health insurance?

Todd Juvinall

Paul Emery 722 I am not agreeing with you. You put words and intent in others. Stop it. McCain switched the vote which would have been the passing vote. All others were well known. You are simply ignorant.

No that would be you trolls that have no rights. We can say anything we want. But you lib trolls are all PC and pathetic. McCain was petty and even his funeral was petty.

Walt

This what happens when your viewers figure out they have been lied too.

"This has to be a bitter pill for CNN. For years now the far-left network has done everything in its power to bring Carlson down. By any measure, CNN has conducted what can only be described as a straight up, deliberate demonization campaign.

CNN has also participated in the effort to have Carlson blacklisted by advertisers due to his right-of-center political beliefs. Since the fake news outlet cannot beat Carlson in the ratings, it is hoping to drive him off the air through McCarthyism.

Obviously this has backfired in a big way."

George Rebane

It appears that one of the many unfortunate deficits of our progressive brethren includes not knowing that in group decisions, especially in highly politicized and evenly divided legislatures, one strong and respected member can and often does sway the outcome. It was ever thus.

Bill Tozer

Priceless, simply priceless. Children say the earnest things. Such projection.
Punchy talking about credibility?? Oh my, I heard it all. “....and it makes him look really stupid for him to assume....”. “Goodness this guy is ignorant.”

Scenes @ 8:01 am.
That pretty much sums it up. Was waiting for the cry of “20 million people are going to die in the streets” as was the mantra of ignorance from the ignorant ones just a couple of years ago. 20 million people will die on the streets if the Unaffordable Care Act is repealed!”, yet they could not answer how many people died on the streets before Obamacare. Mercy.

At least the Botox Queen has learned her lesson and does not want to appear as the biggest fool on the planet. She has others that do that for her. Now she says “people can die”.

“Oh wait! I know! MEDICARE FOR EVERYONE!!! lol. What BS.” Yep. The current slogan is “Medicare for all is Medicare for none.”


Walt

Emery has splain'n to do. If socialized medicine is so great, then why in HELL is Mick Jagger getting heart surgery here in the U.S. and not back home in the U.K.?
He should be getting the rock star "go to the head of the line" treatment.

Let's have the excuses Emery. Your own damned words,, not some piss poor cut and paste.

Bill Tozer

Guns grabbers commission two studies. Both do not yield the results they were seeking.

“A study on state-level gun control laws in the U.S. shows that bans on “high-capacity” magazines and “assault weapons” do not lower homicide rates.”

“The study was headed by Boston University School of Public Health’s Michael Siegel and another listed study author was Harvard gun control advocate David Hemenway.”

“The study, The Impact of State Firearm Laws on Homicide and Suicide Deaths in the USA, 1991–2016: a Panel Study, isolated four states to study ten different types of gun control to see if certain gun controls were successful in reducing homicide and/or suicide rates. Via their research, they discovered that “high-capacity” magazine and “assault weapons” bans do not lower homicide rates.”

“In an interview with Futurity.org, lead study author Michael Spiegel elaborated: “Although I completely understand the desire to ban assault weapons, I just don’t see empirical evidence that such bans have any substantial impact on homicide rates. These bans are most often based on characteristics of guns that are not directly tied to their lethality.”

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/01/study-assault-weapons-and-magazine-bans-do-not-lower-homicide-rates/

Something for the next Townhall Meeting on scary guns. No use quibbling over the term “assault weapon” anymore. They will never get it right. :)

Walt- Probably the same reason my dad went to Sweden for a knee replacement instead of VA. The best of the best ain't necessarily in your home port.

In addition to having lost any credibility they have lost their voice, no on watching -

Throughout all of last week, CNN’s primetime lineup averaged a limp 2.474 million viewers, while all on his own, Carlson averaged 3.475 million viewers.

Here is the specific breakdown according to Nielsen:
Anderson Cooper: 810,000 viewers
Chris Cuomo: 875,000 viewers
Don Lemon: 789,000 viewers

This means that Carlson not only beat all three of these left-wing hacks combined, he beat them by a cool million total viewers.

Sweden? Maybe cheaper,,, not necessarily better.

Plenty of people go to Hong Kong for teeth implants from here.
The price is the reason.

Paul Emery

So what George!!! the bottom line is Trump didn't have the votes. He failed to convince one democrat and had three Repubs go the other way. Are you saying that's an excuse? He lost, pure and simple and it will be tougher next time around because he almost certainly won't have the House on his side. Gosh and Golly, he might actually have to negotiate a deal!!

Bill Tozer

Well, fellas and the ever gracious Miss Bonnie:

It looks like just about all the Leftinista declared candidates are all in for Medicare for All. Punchy has been since forever. So, I don’t know what the fuss is all about.
Credit Kamala Harris for coming out and saying it. Just dismantle private health insurance, throw 180 million people off the coverage most of them like, and stick everybody on government run government owned health insurance. End it, don’t mend it. See Bernie’s poll numbers lately? Not bad. Medicare for All!

What more is there to say? Don”t think anyone on the left is for Mend it, Don’t End it. Maybe the Iraq vet Hindu from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard is not all in on Medicare for All, but I doubt it.

Might be worth seeing what Howard Schultz has to say for those in the middle. He is pretty good with numbers and does use Monopoly money when doing a budget.

Paul Emery

Walt writes: "why in HELL is Mick Jagger getting heart surgery here in the U.S. and not back home in the U.K.?"

Why? Because he wants to and can afford it. I have no problem with private physicians do you? By the way why did Rand Paul go to Canada for hernia surgery?

Walt

Kinda shoots the shit out of your own argument Emery.
Under what YOU want, that would be ILLEGAL. Miss what your pals in D.C. are stumping for? "End private insurance". That would also mean, YOU can't pay that hospital and Dr.s OUT OF POCKET.

Just like with an injury OWNED by worker's Comp. W.C. won't pay for the treatment, and my Doc. can't do a thing without their approval.
That's your Kalif. health care at work.

Truth does not matter to Trump. Never has. Con man and you buy it.

"Trump said Tuesday that his father was born in Germany, even though he wasn't.

It is at least the third time he has said this.

"My father is German - was German," Trump said. "Born in a very wonderful place in Germany, so I have a great feeling for Germany.""

BFD OOzzzz..... Maybe that's what Pops told him. You know,, "family lore"
I don't recall you whining about Izzy Warren the fake Indian, who profited off that lie...
Care to show how Trump did?

Better sent that info to Adam Schiff for brains.

Ozz

Walt-
You mean that the lying gene in inherited?

Paul Emery

I am not a supporter of ending private insurance . I never was. Show me where I supported that. I believe we need a general affordable and if necessary subsidized insurance for anyone who needs it.

Bill Tozer

Don @ 10:07 am..... Tucker single handily beats CNN combined.

Yep, and now they are going back to attacking the dreaded FOX New Network again with a vengeance, pun intended. Oh my. They will never learn a thing when they are convicted they are not only right, they are infallible. They are free to believe whatever they wish.

This is CNN: Now they think it is the Police State’s job to protect Hillary from mean words, lol. Oh my. Should the FBI have “allowed” folks to have fun and revel in chanting “Lock her up, lock her up”? Do we need a permission slip from the hall monitor?
Yo Christine. This is America. In your native Britain, they took away people’s guns and throw citizens in jail for Facebook posts. And in London, someone is attacked with a machete or knife every ninety minutes. Oh, the Lock Her Up chant drives the Clintonistas nuts. Drives them Coo-Coo for Cocoa Puffs.

PaulE 1015am - Don't confuse excuses with explanations. It is you and yours who were confused about why the Repubs couldn't pass healthcare. And then, with your impeccable logic, you went on to accuse Trump of "lying". One of the reasons you guys elect idiots and bad guys to public office is that you may not know how they will operate in a political institution. Or, then again, if your hand is out for a government check, then you know exactly what payment you require for your vote.
