As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Prepared to Blitz Capitol Hill to Pass Health Bill

President Trump predicted Monday night that he would help push the troubled Obamacare repeal bill over the finish line this week, but said Republicans need to come together, and tried to entice them by saying nothing can get done on tax reform until Congress first passes a bill to reform healthcare, the Washington Examiner reported.

Speaking at a rally in Kentucky, Trump said he was ready to work with Republican leaders who support the bill, but also lawmakers like Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. Paul opposes the bill, but Trump said he likes Paul “a lot.”

“And I look forward to working with him so we can get this bill passed, in some form, so that we can pass massive tax reform, which we can’t do until this happens,” Trump said.

“So we gotta get this done before we can do the other,” he explained. “In other words, we have to know what this is before we can do the big tax cuts. We gotta get it done for a lot of reasons, but that’s one of them.”

    • Now that question was presented in a acceptable manner.
      I’ll respond with Nina Murphys comment “Where where you when Obama was president”.
      By the way, are you frightened by our new troll in his scary black facemask?
      Ohhhhhh, scary.

      • I’m not talking about Obama. I’m specifically talking about Trump. If you can’t respond with a thoughtful comment, it just shows that you have no thoughtful answer.

        • Maybe it is your question that is not thoughtful? Or put more succinctly…lame?DT has his issues, but so did Barry the Magnificent. No one on the left, not the MSM, not a single one of his cheerleaders, had a negative word to say about him. According to the Left World, Barry walked on water.
          So don’t be bothering us with stupid questions about DT.
          Kay?

        • For me, I haven’t seen the hate filled racism he is accused of. I haven’t seen any young women fleeing the White House after being groped. I have seen “small government” principles that I agree with. I have seen “US First” foreign policy that I agree with. I have seen respect for the constitution and support for the current laws. I could go on but I have to get back to work so I can continue to support those who want to spend my money.

    • Everything he does is excused and rationalized away.

      Apparently you slept through the last eight years as you described Obama to a T.

      Trump has many faults – and if you paid closer attention – you’d find people listing them here. It’s a far cry from any criticism of Obama immediately being dismissed as racist.

      Now, I didn’t vote for Trump. I wrote in another name. But, something – anything – had to be done to change the direction in Washington DC and the parasite culture that infests the rest of the country.

      If Trump at least does that, I’ll be fine with the other nonsense he spews.

      • Thank you. When faced with a choice of Criminal Liar Clinton and Donald Trump, I picked Trump. Now that we have him, we need to get behind him and get the country out of the ditch that Obama drove us into. To keep nitpicking everything he does is not helpful.
        I would love to see ObamaCare repealed in its entirety like everyone and his brother promised. I don’t believe in putting a band aid on a bullet hole; but it seems like that is what is going to happen.

    • I doubt many people, even die hard supporters of Trump, excuse everything he does or says. You draw broad generalizations with no specifics. How has it been shown that Trump has many more faults than most? Is there some national average out there that scores the population on faults? People are willing to overlook some perceived negatives for positive results. I like what I see so far from Trump.

  1. I am glad that Trump likes Rand Paul, I like him too, he is a man of sense and reason and integrity. I hope he will have a more visible position.
    I am travelling to Italy tomorrow, to Venice, the fairy tale city by the lagoon, before it sinks like the lost Atlantic. Will tell you more later. Good night.

  2. President Trump should also blitz James Comey! He can do it! He can fire anyone at his pleasure. I hope he gets this freaking political FBI jerk out immediately! He won’t investigate criminal leaks but he is investigating Trump? For what? No one changed or influenced the election of Trump, he got 64 million votes! So, Comey in bed with communists to impeach Trump, get rid of him? My father would roll over in his grave if he knew that the FBI James Comey are part of a conspiracy along with McCain the Traitor, the Bushes, the Clintons, etc. HOW HAVE WE COME TO HAVE ALL CRIMINALS IN OUR GOVERNMENT? NIXON WAS A SAINT COMPARED TO THIS EVIL OBAMA. Just look at what Obama did, the first black president and he turned out to be a traitor: who wiretapped people, lots of people including of course, Trump and Merkel for starters, stole our taxpayer money to try to unseat Israel’s Netanyahu??? Our money!!! Obama, more nerve than brains, truly hates America and Americans and he became President? And they are investigating Trump?? What horror this is. People wake up, we probably need a military revolution of all Americans to drain the swamp. We are going down because of Obama, someone we trusted and look at what he does and is still doing? We all have to take back our country. It is nothing but a conspiracy to get trump out now. How can we be like the other third world countries now? The truth is, we don’t have to be afraid of Russia, we have to be afraid of NBC!!! We all have to stop this evil madness.
