WATCH- Pres. to Congress: Repeal Obamacare or Lose Your Insurance Subsidies

August 1, 2017

OAN Newsroom

President Trump has his sights set on Obamacare, and isn’t letting lawmakers get in the way.

One America’s Pearson Sharp has the latest as the president threatens to take action to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

  • Christopher Lavell

    REPEAL, PERIOD!! NO REPLACE!! Congress should NEVER have anything better than whats available to the American people!!

  • Roy Beane

    Don’t talk about it, Mr. President, …DO IT. These clowns ALL need to be kicked off the congressional gravy train and find out what real life is all about in the real world for a change.

  • Clinicaleducator1

    NOT a threat!!! PROMISE!!!! DRAIN THE SEWER!!!!

  • RURC

    I 100% agree with this.
    The fact is that congress must be forced to be the guinea pigs for anything they pass. They must use what they pass for 4 years before citizens have to deal with it. Also they must not be allowed to supplement their healthcare with one penny of their wealth.

  • chiphenry

    Repeal, not replace. It’s what they promised. President Trump, please hold their feet to the fire and if they fail to repeal, please stop those payments to the insurance companies. If they have the right to sue, let the Supreme Court settle the matter. Thank you from free Americans, in advance.

  • Blah

    The RINOs snicker knowing repeal would fail. Trump holds all the cards. Get rid of bailouts, let Obamacare fail even faster, and watch the weakling RINO’s polish Trump’s shoes to vote again! 2018 is coming b4 2020 RINOs!

  • I think everyone in DC should be required to have the same insurance as the people. They work for us! Supposedly.

  • Flounder101

    I’m all for the “You First” approach. No law should be past that congress is not first subjected to. Obamacare?
    You first. Tax increases? You first. No insider trading? Definitely, YOU FIRST!

  • aldoro

    I have insurance with Humana I don’t believe obamacare affected me in ANY way. So whats all the fuss about repealing it. Just get rid of it. Let those that are under it get insurance just like I did.

      problem is at least here in Texas if your self employed, or have to purchase your own insurance, (not through an employer) I can not get a PPO no matter how much I’m willing to spend, we are simply stuck with a crappy ass ACA HMO. I work a crappy 9-5 just so I can have a PPO when in fact I make 10 times as much money at night trading on the FOREX market and have no other need for a day job other than insurance that we can use

  • Butthep

    President, let 3 liars eat Obamacare. Don’t give Obamacare a dime.

  • Donald York

    Susan Collins is fickle, and easily swayed. Sarah Palin warned us about Murkowski, and i’m sure John McCain received a phone call from his old buddy Obama. Just saying.

  • Just do it! Maybe if they have to live under the rules they put in place, they just might, do a better job?

  • Hans Pfall

    …and on Fox last night, Charles Sour-Krauthammer was saying “But you CAN’T do that! You have to give them special perks or they’ll get mad and won’t do what you want!” SWAMP SWAMP SWAMP! Has to be business as usual or they will throw a hissy-fit.

    “Hey Congress: Welcome to what YOU wrought. You think O-Care is so great? CHOKE on it. We’re going to do a LOT more than yank your health care goodies. You scumbags have shanked us in the gut for the last time. From now on, you PAY for what you do to us.”

    MAGA, Donald. We’re behind you!!!

  • Zipp

    MAKE CONGRESSMAN PAY WHAT WE PAY, I’m 100% sure as soon as that happens there would be a whole hell of a lot more urgency for these bastards to do something for us.

    • Hans Pfall

      Not just that, make sure they have to use the same sub-standard medical “care”, wait in the same overcrowded ER’s, have to be told “we can see you in six weeks” as WE do. Oh, and make sure those deductibles are as high (percentage wise) as ours as well. Mine rose to FIVE TIMES what it was when I started. FIVE BLOODY TIMES.

      Yeah…your cushy life in Congress is OVER. Get ready for lean times.

  • andrew moore

    What do you expect from a traitor like mccain…..he sold out the American people when he made that tokyo rose propaganda recording when he was captured….Trump was right….mccain isn’t a hero he is a traitor.

  • 45MAGA!

    I hope these members will be replaced with Americans that put this country first!

  • JOHN T. FOX

    FIRST, DECLARE OSOMA OBAMA INELIGIBLE TO HAVE SERVED AS PRESIDENT. SECOND, THIS THEN ELIMINATES ALL LAWS, EXECUTIVE ORDERS, APPOINTMENTS AND DEBT CREATED BY OSOMA OBAMA. PROBLEM SOLVED!

    • If only any of your ideas could be implemented. What a wonderful country we would have!

      • JOHN T. FOX

        I KNOW! THINK OF IT, $1,000 BOUNTY’S ON THE SCALPS OF ANYONE PERCEIVED TO BE AN ILLEGAL ALIEN, TERRORIST OR GANG MEMBER. AMERICA WOULD ENTER INTO A 50 YEAR REINASSANCE!

  • Kyle Smith

    Should have been done already.

  • No Mas

    Federal employees and elected officials should NEVER receive better care or benefits than the American public they serve!!! Remember when serving the USA was unpaid and a privilege??? No!!! Me neither. They (most) all turned it into a personal cash machine!

    • JOHN T. FOX

      YES I DO AND YES THEY DID STARTING WITH CLINTON!

    • HarryObrian

      Seriously? Have you seen the pensions all the unionized civil servants are getting these days? In many if not all cases their pension is greater than their working income was and it includes free Cadillac healthcare. I personally know of a handful of small town retired firemen (cellar savers) making 6 figure pensions while their neighbors who worked in non-government, non-unionized jobs barely get by on SS and what little savings they have. And this is common place.

  • antiliberal00

    They should also be forced to go on the obozocare exchanges and pay the ridiculous rates.

    • ooddballz

      They should also be forced to go on the obozocare exchanges and pay the ridiculous rates……AND get their healthcare from the V.A.

      • Hans Pfall

        AND sit in ER waiting rooms for five, six, eight (or more) hours with a hundred people, 90% of whom don’t speak English. They lay on a gurney or sit in an ER bed for another five/ten hours where the only person you see is a Filipino nurse or orderly who ignores you. THEN get to “see” a doctor for 30 seconds who doesn’t listen to you and orders some X-rays…which they’ll get to in ANOTHER five or six hours, THEN…

        …getting the picture, Senators & Congressmen? If you WANT your special health care, you can KEEP your special health care. Just like WE were able to!

  • Observer8710

    Yes… make them feel what it is like to be under Obamacare… Repeal…

    • Hans Pfall

      …and FORGET replace! Let the market be the market again. GET GOV’T OUT OF ANYTHING EXCEPT MEDICARE AND MEDICAID.

      • Britton George

        Entitlements killing the country, people just need to accept they cant afford care and stop mooching.

      • Britton George

        Its a privilege to have care, not a right as Democrats would have us believe.
