WH Officials Want McConnell to Revisit Obamacare Repeal in Sept.

August 16, 2017
OAN Newsroom

The White House is looking at ways to pressure Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to revisit repealing and replacing Obamacare next month.

Sources say no one in the west wing is ready to give up on health care reform, and everyone is pushing for a bill that works.

Officials may be looking at the reconciliation rule again, which expires at the end of September.

Much like the previous vote, it will allow the majority to pass legislation without a Democrat filibuster.

However, McConnell says he plans to move away from Obamacare repeal and begin work on other legislation.

This comes as the Senate Health Committee is preparing for meetings next month.

    WH Officials Want McConnell To Pass Obamacare Repeal In Sept Or Revist The ER Over and Over Again For Mis-Steps On his Way To Work Until he Can’t Walk Anymore. Then It’ll Be Time For his Wheelchairs To Have Massive Blow-Outs.

  • Brad Johnson

    McConnell needs to be REMOVED as Senate Majority Leader! He couldn’t Lead a horse to water!

    If Alabama is any indicator, Incumbent Senators are in for a rough time come next election! They are so stupid to think voters are not watching them do NOTHING with regards to OBAMACARE!

    Meanwhile back in the real world, self employed people can’t even BUY healthcare insurance in our county. The last insurer (December of last year) premiums were $1,740.00 per month (2 healthy people) for a 12K deductible policy.

    How many more times is this joke going to continue? Republicans have voted how many times to repeal and have not been successful,Congress needs to work TOGETHER to fix problem,will it ever happen, probably not

  • #45MAGA!

    As far as I’m concerned, McCain,Ryan and McConnell need to be drained and replaced with republicans that will work with President Trump. This was not going to be an immediate or easy transition. We need to stay the course! The juice is worth the squeeze. Like him or not Washington is showing it’s true colors. They would never have done that with anyone else. I thank God for President Trump.

  • davidcoxe

    The simple answer is Congress does not wish to repeal Obamacare. Everyone is getting big payoffs in the back rooms and they want to just tax the crap out of everyone which is what Obamacare is. Congress really wants Socialized medicine for everyone else but themselves. It is what the large Hospital Corporations want and the large insurance companies especially since the insurance companies own the Hospitals

  • Tado

    Waste of time.
    McConnell is a fluke.
    A Republican fluke.
    Stop the Hope.
    They lied and deceived us for seven (7) years.
    Can you forget that?
    Remember what they did to ACA.
    The GOP lied.
    The Republicans lied.

  • Hola ConosLiberales

    Trump. What are you thinking? Just tell the RINOs that they need to own their Obamacare failure in the primary and general election.

    Just get tax reform done. Oh yeah. If you haven’t figured it out yet the republicans want you to fail more than the democrats.

  • Scott Henke

    I think it’d be smarter to get tax reform done first. Let Obamacare die on its own.

    • Monica Sylvester

      I agree – let O’care die under its own weight. The government should not be involved in our healthcare.

  • Keykiemikie

    There are some very powerful political groups, some corporations and CEO’s and rich foreign individuals that are working full time on taking down the USA and Europe as we’ve known it.

  • Don’t Tase Me Bro!

    Trump gave McConnell’s Asian wife the once over at his NYC penthouse this past weekend on his gold heart shaped rotating bed.

    • Monica Sylvester

      Your comment is rude.

      • Don’t Tase Me Bro!

        But you still like it.

  • RevGregory

    The Turtle is a farce, beat his ass to the ground now.

  • Wheel of misfortune

    Turtle-head McConnell is a charlatan and a fraud. A pontificating buffoon who’s done ZERO for the American people.

  • Mike Drop

    Won’t happen, he never wanted it repealed in the first place.

  • Won’t happen…too close to 2018 elections.

  • 10X

    And if he doesn’t…what exactly then?

  • Jorge Sedais

    Who needs ObamaCare? Take a bus to a sanctuary city hospital, speak a foreign language, tell them you’re illegal and you get it for free. Can’t get more affordable than that?

  • Richard McGinty

    SHIT-CAN this IDIOT!!!…Make him retire!!!

  • Lee Vincent

    Time for a new majority leader!

  • Bill Smith

    He whined for 7 years to repeal and replace ! Congress needs to get off it’s ass and work for the People. I don’t care if they all hate Trump. They are supposed to work for you and I. Time for Term Limits and power to the Voters.

  • Sunstarburst

    McConnell – gobble gobble

  • antiliberal00

    First you have to start with McConnell & Ryan repeals…

  • CFLAP

    I don’t know how they get anything accomplished when they only work part time.

  • Tado

    Forget it.
    Come 2018, let’s reject them all.

  • Tado

    Forget it.
    Come 2018 Elections — reject all Republican re-elects.

    • JimmyZ

      Sure and we end up with democrats and they get to push all their bills through all while impeaching our president. Great plan.

      • Tado

        They’re all the same.

      • Tado

        No choice.

  • constitutiononly

    That old RINO and many others like him in Congress will never do OUR bidding. Repeal.Don’t replace.

  • Jam Jenes

    Repeal.

    Just repeal.

    Keeping the gubmint involved in health care will eventually lead us to commie care.

    You will wait months for a doctor’s appointment. At which time, what was easily treatable will become terminal.

  • 1321 counties with only 1 health insurer..and growing weekly.

    Obamacare does far more harm than good

  • beardawg77

    Fucng liar. Get your goober fricken ass out of my face.

    • ForeverTrump

      LOL!! Who you talking to?

      • Janelle

        Think it’s McConnell!

        • ForeverTrump

          I hope it’s not to himself!! lol

          • Janelle

            That is kind of my reaction to Mitch, too, FT!!!

      • beardawg77

        McConnell

        • ForeverTrump

          OK. Was wondering!!

  • carol lervig

    DITCH MITCH!! He does not support President Trump…he should step down!

    • Right! Can’t drain the sewer with McConnell plugging up the drain.

      • Roy Beane

        He got his depends drawahs stuck in the drain.

  • voncile

    If Republicans don’t get Repeal/Replace done, I’d venture to say President Donald Trump will be the last man standing in DC one day after election day 2018!!

    • ForeverTrump

      Who cares about replace??? No need. Just repeal the damn thing like was promised us and why we voted them in to get done.

      • Janelle

        Exactly when did they sneak in “replace” like a thief in the night? I really don’t want the feral government anywhere near healthcare.

        • ForeverTrump

          Hi Janelle!! That’s what I’m talking about!! All of a sudden they come up with this replace bs? We were promised a REPEAL!! And that is what we want!

          • Janelle

            They don’t have the necessary training, skills or experience to go anywhere near healthcare. As far as I can tell………most politicians think their job is to fundraise.

          • ForeverTrump

            Their job is supposed to be to represent their constituents and they are failing terribly. Time to get ALL new ones in congress.

          • Janelle

            It totally mystifies me how many people get attached to their congress weasels. Ick.

          • ForeverTrump

            I do like my representative Clay Higgins though. He represents us and don’t take no crap!

          • Janelle

            What district?

          • ForeverTrump

            3rd district Louisiana.

          • Janelle

            Lots of precipitation recently in Louisiana!

          • ForeverTrump

            Normal for this time of year. The farmers are trying to cut their rice and bale the hay so it rains all the time. lol

          • Janelle

            Mother Nature can be a mischievous witch, FT!

          • ForeverTrump

            Yep. You guys better start watching those waves of storms coming from your southeastern side. They are beginning to form a line heading to the Caribbean.

          • Janelle

            That is normal for us in the summer!

          • ForeverTrump

            Yeah, late August to mid October is sometimes brutal. Luckily we haven’t seen a bad one since Ike in 2008.

          • Janelle

            Knock on wood, guy!

          • j jones

            I guess the Republican don’t meet your qualifications either judging by the number of times your group of misfits have failed to replace

          • Janelle

            I am not a fan of most politicians……..whatever party they purportedly are.

          • Janelle

            Am an independent, jones.

          • j jones

            That’s what you want not the average American

          • ForeverTrump

            Make sense if you want to reply to me you gay troll.

      • voncile

        Totally agree! I would much rather see the Gov. get the ‘Xell’ out of my healthcare decisions.

    • JimmyZ

      Maybe some of these die hard Trump Supporters should run for office in 2018 and take some of these seats to push us over the majority and show these Rhino’s the door.

  • Letmesay

    So it makes me wonder what does he do? or what has he ever done. Because it’s obvious he does not move fast.
    He is like a big rock on the road to something better. It’s time to move the rock and send it home. One thing for sure he is not for the American people.

  • John airconn

    This POS need’s to be replaced, along with Ryan, Songbird McStain, Little Miss Lindsey. It’s time to Ditch Mitch, the POS. Turtle face jerk.

    • j jones

      Love to see you Republican eat your own, keep it going until there are one of you people are left

  • Beast

    waste of time ..McConnell is against Trump.

    • antiliberal00

      Worse, he is against America.

    • Roy Beane

      Yep. More than a few turds in the Republican punch bowl in Washington. McConnell, Ryan, and McCain are three of the biggest….and there are others.

      • harvey50

        Many others and a large bunch of them dont float…..yet.They will be found out..

        • M10 Bob

          Watchoo mean “Will be”, Willis?

      • M10 Bob

        Don’t forget Lyndsey “Nancy” Graham!

    • RevGregory

      I guess the patriots of Kentucky lost their balls. Effeminate now are ya ?

    • Tado

      Hell or high water.
      Let’s keep up with our support for Trump,

  • steve hall

    He’s needs to step down.

    • RevGregory

      He needs to be stomped down

  • Barry Soetoro-Chin

    Why September? Why not now, with NO replacement?

    Have his wife, Elaine Chao, replace him as Senate Majority Leader. She has more ‘balls’ than that doddering, old wimpy fool. Remember how she handed the unions their collectives @sses when she was GWB’s Secretary of Labor. Too bad Bush wimped out.

  • Mario Ruffino

    McConnell is nothing but a Rhino, always has been always will be.

    • M10 Bob

      I disagree..Rino’s have hides and a horn for aggression.
      McConnell is more of a “sleeping Opossum” who plays dead hoping all the important stuff will just “go away on it’s own.”

  • Roy Beane

    This old turd isn’t going to do ANYTHING but TALK. He has NO intention of doing ANYTHING to advance the President’s agenda. He has drifted so far to the left that now he looks more like a DemoFelon Party member instead of a Republican. DITCH MITCH NOW.
