Ryan: Bloodbath If GOP Fails to Pass Health Care Legislation

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Sunday said he agrees with President Trump that 2018 will be a “bloodbath” for Republicans if Congress does not pass legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare.

“I do believe that if we don’t keep our word to the people who sent us here, yeah,” Ryan told CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” when asked if he agreed with Trump’s reported comments about the 2018 midterm elections.

According to a CNN report last week, Trump told Republican House members in a meeting that 2018 would be a “bloodbath” if they fail to pass healthcare legislation.

    Wait a minute.. Government controlled health-care is one BIG step towards Socialism.

  • Howard A Milor Jr. says:

    There will be a bloodbath if the Turn Ciat Ryan’s plan is passed!
    What part of repeal and replace don’t you understand Ryan?

  • Bob says:

    Ryan, the good little Catholic boy from Cheese country, is lined up to take Health Care coverage from millions, and will ultimately kill THOUSANDS in order to fatten the coffers of his rich Insurance Industry chums. Wouldn’t be surprised if Pope Francis ex-communicates the Scumbag! He never really was a true Catholic, anyway, the PHONY CLOWN!!!

  • exoticdoc2 says:

    Ryan is nothing but a worthless closet liberal. Get rid of him. The gummint should be out of health care, given they screw up everything they get their grubby little mitts on. Gummint intervention in things is a loser liberal answer to any and everything. The gummint needs to stick to the essentials such as military, roads and the like, and be kept as small as possible. Unelected, unaccountable bureaucracies are the bane of the US and many other gummints.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Let’s vote out the e/GOP RINO’s …..regardless of this vote.

    RINO Paul Ryan re-elected 2016
    RINO Mitch McConnell re-elected 2016
    RINO John McCain re-elected 2016
    RINO Roy Blunt re-elected 2016
    RINO Lamar Alexander re-elected 2014
    RINO Lindsey Graham re-elected 2014
    RINO Thad Cochran re-elected 2014
    RINO Orrin Hatch re-elected 2012
    RINO Bob Corker re-elected 2012
    RINO Ben Sasse elected 2014

    I know I missed a few others.

    Ironically, most RINO seats saved by Trumps election, most likely voted for Hillary Clinton!

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Yes, 8 years was long enough to craft a replacement bill but the e/GOP RINO’s never thought Trump would be elected. That is why nothing was ready.

    Hell, most of them voted for Hillary!!

      The big problem is the Media and lobbyist F___ everything up . Lobbyist control our elected with Campaign funding .

        Simple, ban union and corporate campaign financing. Repeal Citizens United for starters.

    GOP Healthcare Plan Would Allow Illegal Aliens to Get Tax Credits — Tell Congress to Close the Loophole!

    ……..Dear activists,

    On Monday night, GOP Leaders unveiled a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Unfortunately, the legislation, as introduced, would allow illegal aliens to access taxpayer-funded benefits.

    NumbersUSA takes no position on the healthcare issue in general. But we do oppose taxpayer benefits going to illegal aliens.

    Under Obamacare, as many as 500,000 illegal aliens were able to obtain healthcare subsidies, amounting to $750 million, according to a 2015 Senate report, even though the law specifically excludes them from accessing the subsidies.

    At best, the GOP healthcare plan would keep the same failed verification process from the Affordable Care Act in place. But our Capitol Hill team is hearing from multiple contacts that the plan may not have a verification process at all to keep illegal aliens from accessing the plans tax credits.

    By: Daniel Horowitz — March 07, 2017


    One of the most memorable moments of Obama’s presidency was when Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C. (D, 65%) could no longer contain his anger as the president touted his signature health care legislation before a joint session of Congress. When Obama promised that illegal aliens would not be able to access the subsidies, Wilson shouted, “You lie!”

    Sadly, eight years later, Paul Ryan, R-Wis. (F, 51%) and Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. (F, 40%) are well on their way to tweaking Obamacare and owning it for themselves under the stratagem of calling it “repeal and replace.” Now it appears that we might need Joe Wilson to direct his truth bomb at his own party. If nothing is done, Obamacare 2.0 will contain the same verification provisions as the original version that have enabled illegal aliens engaging in identity fraud to access the subsidies.

    On page 37 of the draft legislation released by the Committee on Ways and Means, the bill calls for the use of the same verification methods as spelled out in sections 1411 and 1412 of ..…Obamacare!

    Obamacare was based on verification provisions passed in the Democrats’ 2009 SCHIP bill, which required verification of citizenship but NOT identity. During the Obamacare debate, our side constantly said using the SCHIP provisions would encourage identity fraud and could qualify illegal immigrants for subsidies.

    However, this bill would make the situation even worse than Obamacare. Although Obamacare didn’t require photo ID and fingerprints to verify identity, it did harness the Department of Homeland Security’s Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database. Thus, officials were at least able to check immigration status against Social Security numbers.

    The problem with this bill is that because it tweaks Obamacare and creates a new massive entitlement system through the budget reconciliation process, it cannot have the statutory effect of mandating HHS and IRS work with Citizenship and Immigration Services to use the SAVE database because that issue is outside the jurisdiction of the reporting committees. And no subject matter from other committees can be included in reconciliation.

    Thus, to pass Obamacare 2.0 instead of plain repeal via budget reconciliation, Republicans must use weaker verification language.

  • justinwachin says:

    2018 could turn out to be a bloodbath for Republicans if they enact a bad health care reform bill. My problem isn’t the name on the bill but the content of the bill. The Republicans need to come up with a simple free market approach to health care. Remodeling Obamacare is a bad idea.

  • CrustyOldGeezer says:

    ryan will be happy with a ‘bloodbath’ ONLY IF the republicans lose control of congress.

    He is lost when people look to him for direction because the ‘leader gene’ has been scrubbed out of his pool generations ago.

    Now he takes directions on “how to lead” from democrats.

    He never should have been retained in ANY leadership role in congress.

    IF Trump has people working behind the scenes and quietly now, by the midterms ryan will be primaried OUT, along with the rest of the RINOs, and when the ‘disgruntled’ voters go to the polls they will be able to complete the job of getting LOSERS OUT of the Republican party.

    1. The Redhawk says:

      They , BOTH Parties have Become ONE big FOOKED UP PARTY of Professional Political “hores!!!

      1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

        Americans, across the boards or race, religion and political philosophies have seen the destruction of this Nation under the liberals and RINOs that they are ready for a better government.

        Trump, in less than 2 months has illuminated a path, to a better future.

        If he is able to find and PROSECUTE the leaks, stay with Twitter to bypass the corrupt media, by the midterms the VOTERS will know the failures that is liberalism and reject any return to that philosophy.

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    The real ‘fix’ for Obamacare isn’t repeal and replace. It’s rework the financial support mechanism that provides subsidies to subscribers, supports states with Medicaid grants, and entices multiple insurers into every state and locality. All the provisions of service are desirable–no pre-existing conditions, insure young adults on parental policies, no caps on coverage, no hospital revolving doors for patients and more–and should be maintained. It’s the universality of the program that’s in question, something Republicans don’t want to enact. No universal coverage, no increases in federal subsidies and support for insurers; in other words no federal money to keep healthcare costs reasonable. It’s an impossible hill to climb for conservatives and the cheapskate Freedom Caucus. Time for Democrats to dig in and provide the solution whereas the majority is frozen, irresponsible, ideologically driven and stuck in the mud. With Republicans split, Democrats can insure ACA with a plan they can all support as the valid ‘replacement’.

    1. Webb says:

      The Democrats had their chance at Healthcare…It failed.
      Lies and cover up…
      It should be Repealed entirely and no longer handled by Government.

      1. The Redhawk says:

        and keep Governmnet OUT of HC other than Medicare ….Let States based on needs and Individual facilities manage MEDICAID but NO HC for Illegals … Obama care was Predicted to FAIL and it IS! Typical of EVERYTHING that the O DUMBO administration has “successfully” failed at

        1. DrBillLemoine says:

          Helloooooo? Medicaid is the federal money that helps states take care of sick people and balance budgets. It’s not going away if you ask governors.
          Medicare is not going away either as a long-time promise to workers who paid life long taxes to remain healthy in retirement. BTW social security and medicare are available only to long-term workers (40 quarters, minimum) so employers who hire illegals are the problem you see.
          Actually Obamacare is wildly successful as healthcare; it’s the financial underpinnings that need fixing, and was blocked by republicans in congress. The rest of your smear is also wrong unless you like corruption-free government.

          1. Retired says:

            As usual spreading Bullshitsky again, you support the corrupt government with the crap you write . You are the Dr. of brain washing .

          3. NM Leon says:

            Stop parroting the libtard talking points, BB. Obozocare was a schitte sandwich on the day it was passed and it still is. You idiots can try to put all the ketchup on it you want, but it will just be a schitte sandwich with ketchup on it.

      2. DrBillLemoine says:

        Actually subscribers, although not House Republican regulars, like the provisions of ACA. It’s the post 2010 passage of the law, the Republican blocking that has failed to improve the financial part of the law. Repeal isn’t fixing a good thing. The current replacement ignores the roots of the problems–because conservatives are cheapskates first and don’t want a national program but are forced to keep it or kill citizens who vote for them, and also they reject universal healthcare as a right of citizens and want to devise ways to eventually eliminate an ‘entitlement’. So, Trump supporters want ACA retained, unlike the ultra-right under Sen. Paul and the cheapskates under Ryan. It’s a failure of conservative thinking to try eliminating a needed national program.

        1. Webb says:

          A bankrupt nation can’t support itself…
          Repeal is the thing…period.

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            Nations don’t go bankrupt–a bogus fear. Are you afraid Trump won’t produce jobs???

          2. Helland says:

            You might want to read some world HISTORY concerning that “..don’t go bankrupt…” before using that line again.

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            World History covers a lot. Care to focus your thinking. Have you considered my qualifications on the bankruptcy statement?

          4. Helland says:

            Then focus on my remark. Bankruptcy. Multiple gov’ts amd empires have failed due to bankruptcy..financial and otherwise.

          5. DrBillLemoine says:

            Your context for ‘bankruptcy’ was financial, re the federal debt, wasn’t it? Why are you shifting the definition to ‘otherwise’? What nations with American status have gone bankrupt?

          6. NM Leon says:

            I doubt that you as a math challenged person have any qualifications,

          7. NM Leon says:

            “Nations don’t go bankrupt”

            That’s technically true in a VERY narrow legalistic sense. Nations don’t file for legal bankruptcy protection, but they certainly default on debt which is the national equivalent. I know you are math/arithmetic challenged, so maybe a little education for you is in order (not too complex for your feeble mind I hope).

    2. NM Leon says:

      What a crock. Obozo and the Dems made a schitte sandwich. Many of us ran the numbers from day one and saw that it was not financially self sustaining (actuarially sound). It was never meant to be a functional plan, it was always meant to fail, the assumption being that single payer would be the fix.

      Why should I pay for the HIV treatment for a drug addict? Why should I have to pay for the lung cancer of a lifelong smoker?

      Do you want to be in the same auto insurance risk pool as the guy who has had multiple DUIs? Do you want to be in the same auto insurance risk pool as the guy who waits until he has an accident to join?

      Health insurance is no more a “right” than car insurance.

        I have repeatedly written and called my representatives demanding they shouldn’t be receiving Platinum retirement and healthcare on the backs of the taxpayers. That’s not to mention earning 4 times the average citizens’ wages while working a third as much. Of course it falls on deaf ears!

        You can bet if they had the same healthcare as we, it would have been fixed a long time ago. It’s the double standard thing, in their minds, they are “Better” than us so deserve better.

    4. Teapartier says:

      Agreed. They were sent to congress years ago to rid us of Obamacare and did nothing. Let us have a free market to lower cost not CofC directed care. The big businesses who helped with cost want to shift the burden to government And we all know how government runs things. If the economy or any business(medicine is a business not a right). Goes in the tank it is government through regulations or favoritism that destroys. Difficult to find anything positive it has done in the market.
