If I were a member of the Republican “freedom caucus”, and I was being blamed for Ryancare’s demise, my mantra would be, “On to phases two and three!” Paulie Walnuts’ plan went down like a drone piloted by a blind folded man who lost a hand in chainsaw accident riding the tilt-a-whirl at the state fair. So what’s keeping the GOP from moving on to phases to and three of their boneheaded three part plan?
What is preventing enacting phase II right now? Why can’t DHS Secretary Tom Price still work his magic unwinding all of those “as the secretary determines” parts of Robertscare? It seems to me that there is not one thing preventing Secretary Price from doing what Paulie Walnuts said we would be doing in Phase II of his failed bill. There are over 1,400 citations in Robertscare that allow the secretary to set the rules. So get on with it Secretary Price. Maybe by keeping your word in this area you could generate some good will among the Freedom Caucus that you are serious about scrapping the mess that is Robertscare.
There is also nothing preventing the congress from proposing other repeal bills. I like this one, a one sentence repel of Robertscare. I’d also like to see a bill requiring all of the Caligula, D.C. swell required to live under the healthcare plan that they have foisted off on us. The azzbags exempted themselves from the bag of excrement they expect the rest of to live under. Also PDJT can revoke all of those waivers Obama issued to his donors and political allies.
One way to expose how crummy a law is, is to relentlessly enforce it. The sooner everyone is under the thumb of the stupidity that is Robertscare the easier it will be to gather public support to drive a stake through the heart of the abomination.
But what are we crazy? It’s Caligula, D.C. Do we really expect them to do anything other than voting themselves a raise and more time off?
