Trump Blasts Obama "He Knew [Obamacare] Was A Lie"; Tells GOP: "Don't Leave Town Until Healthcare Is Done"

Tyler Durden's picture

A clearly frustrated President Trump lambasted GOP senators at The White House this morning demanding that they cancel their August recess and not leave town until acting to repeal ObamaCare.

“We can repeal, but we should repeal and replace, and we shouldn’t leave town until this is complete -- until this bill is on my desk,” the president told senators at the beginning of a lunch meeting at the White House.

 

“Any senator who votes against debate says you are fine with Obamacare,” Trump said.

As Bloomberg reports, The Senate was originally scheduled to go on its traditional August recess on July 29, but McConnell delayed it by two weeks.

McConnell of Kentucky has spoken of moving to a scaled-back, bipartisan measure, and the Senate Health Committee plans hearings in the coming weeks on how to stabilize markets (facing no apparent way to win over conservative and moderate holdouts seeking to pull the health care measure in opposite directions -- with conservatives demanding a fuller repeal of Obamacare and moderates seeking to preserve aid to Medicaid patients and people with pre-existing conditions.)

The inability to deliver on seven years of GOP promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would be the biggest failure yet for Trump and Republicans since they won control of Congress and the White House.

"I’m not going to own it," Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday.

It appears even President 'Teflon' Trump is starting to realize that time is running out...

During his meeting with Senators, Trump blasted former president Obama over his many lies on Obamacare... (as GatewayPundit notes)

President Trump slammed President Obama for his many lies “He knew they were lies!”

"Since 2013 Obamacare premiums have skyrocketed… Despite the promise that premiums would decrease by $2,500 on average, they’ve almost increased by $3,000 and even much more than that in some cases. It’s crushing the Middle Class and the families of the Middle Class. It’s frankly crushing our country.

 

Obamacare was a big lie. You can keep your doctor – Lie! You can keep your plan – Lie! It was a lie directly from the president. You can keep your doctor. You can keep your plan. 28 times he said that. 28 times. And it was a lie and he knew it was!

1BTC says Drumpf hasn't even read the bill

Why would he. Reading and interpreting is for his trusted advisor: wormtongue

Where's that piece of shit Jonathan Gruber? HE needs to be hauled-out in front of the cameras, and made to explain this piece of crap "healthcare" extortion scheme that HE designed.

While they're at it, they should also give Ms. "We Need to Pass it, So we can Find Out What's In It" a full-frontal lobotomy (although we all know she doesn't have a brain).

So wait...  now he doesn't want to watch it implode by itself?  This is all about Trump, he promised so he is going to fuck shit up and end up taking responsibility for this mess. What an arrogant idiot...

 

Just let the fucking thing die on it's own!

Trump Yesterday: "Let it die!"

Trump Today: "Make ObamaCare Great Again!"

Trump Tomorrow: "Muh Russia"

 

Why can't we just repeal? When did govt intervention sound like a good idea?

Don't fucking blame, Trump, you've been in office long enough.

 

Get the fucking cost down!

Why is Trump just blaming Obama?

The Republicans controlled the House (and spending) when BanksterCare (it ain't ObamaCare, people, and never, ever was... that's the psy-op that has all you people confused).

A Republican appointed supreme court judge bastardized rationality to shove this Debt-Money Monopolist ordinary person asset stripping mechanism down our throats.

Oh, that's right, the supporter of Goldman Sach, Skull and Bones Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary is trying to keep you on the Debt-Money Monopolist "two-party plantation" instead of exposing the false political dichotomy (temporarily trichotomy until the blow the economy and blame Trump and his supporters - and you supporters are completely blind to the set up).

Bookmark this post... it is going to happen.

Trump needs to let Obamacare implode. Just don't do anything. Kick back and watch Obamacare die.

Dude, BanksterCare isn't rigged to go alone. It is rigged to take out 10s of millions of ordinary people with it!

THINK!

*Sigh*, it looks like the R-Team has lots of stupid cuntz too......

All Risk No Reward's picture

The D-team and the R-team are both financed and controlled by the Debt-Money Monopolist cartel.

They are an advanced version of the "good cop / bad cop" psy-op that their financed police states have been using for over a century.

We've been under Debt-Money Monopolist Mega-Corporate Fascist Empire going back to at least 1913... and it doesn't matter which of their false political dichotomy pretends to run government.

Review all the politicians who died early/suspicious deaths, or had family knocked off, and then you will some people who didn't represent the Debt-Money Monopolist Mega-Corporate Fascist Empire with enough zeal.

The bill shouldn't exist in the first place except to clear the field for competition and prevent the states from blocking their residents from being ensured (or not insured) as they please.

We don't need an Republican version of the ACA we need .GOV OUT OF THE HEALTHCARE BUSINESS!!!

jcaz's picture

Good point, tho-  why should any of those assholes leave town until business is settled?  It's called ACCOUNTABILITY.

If Trump does nothing else but raise this spectre, I'm happy with his work.

It would take them one vote to repeal this shit entirely- get it done.

Bar'ss so low we applaud his ability to climb into firetrucks properly ... as long as we don't get into nuclear war and the S&P stay +1800 we'll consider him a success

That's OK, the Democrats didn't even write it.  (The Health Insurance companies did, along with Death Panel Ezekiel Emmanuel).

is that the kike that's on faux "news" weekends  now?

Mtnrunnr's picture

when he actually wants to be, he is a good president. I didn't vote for him, and I'll probably hate the bill they pass, but he isn't letting those rat bastard congressman take a free vacation after doing nothing. That much I can agree with.

Until they can't exempt themselves from it, there will be  no good plan.

Oh, but they need that time to go out fundraising and to go to dinners every night where people with big bucks can pick up their campaign tabs.

Our congressman just had a dinner where the cheapest ticket was $10,000 and the top paying fools paid $100,000.   What is going on is insane.

That may be the case, but it usually takes one to know one.

My response: GOOD! ABOUT TIME!! Time to lower the hammer.

Shit can the useless RINO aka Susan Collins

That would include McConnell, McStainshit and over half of the GOP.

Anyone see the problem here?

Politicians are all useless and yet we keep electing the worst of them?

Honest, bright. decent American need not apply.   They never make it through the filters of those two parties.

GunnerySgtHartman's picture

I see no problem.  Replace them with REAL conservatives.

corporatewhore's picture

Susan Collins, aka Dianne Rheem, just needs to retire.

The nomenlature "Republican" actually is just the flipside of "Democrat"--two sides to a uniparty.  It took the Donald to expose them.  To paraphrase George Wallace--not a dime's difference between them.

You know if I didn't know any better, I'd almost think that both parties actually want to keep Obamacare in place ...

they too thought Clinton would win all along, so they could bitch about it and with Clinton in WH nothign woudl ever happen to O Care reagrdelss of how bad it is (just on spending).

Still there is a void in conversation and debate of how to make the system mor eproductive and efficient and effective and rid it of waste and fraud.

FoggyWorld's picture

That's how they all get their campaign chests filled up and make it tough on incumbants who don't have that pay to play access unless they happen to win.

Donald, without election reform, they are laughing at you. You're getting more pathetic with each Tweet. Grow a spine and enforce the laws against the pedos in Congress. Otherwise, quit and go home.

Too much to ask those fuckers to do their job. The only thing worse than no representation is misrepresentation.

TRUMP IS PART OF THE FIX NITWIT!

 

The idea that Trump is the victim is just asinine, it is the American people who have fallen for the Zionist election scam again.

With the closet Dems in Drag (Rat Ryan Speaker of the House and Maxine "Mitchie" McConnell Majority Leader of the Senate) controlling Congress it will be a win for the Dims! 

Reminds me of Eye of the Newt's Contract with America that would get rid of the Dept of Education.
