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

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
