White House to pressure McConnell on ObamaCare

White House officials are exploring ways to pressure Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to return to the controversial issue of ObamaCare repeal when the Senate returns to work in September.

President Trump, who has repeatedly criticized McConnell in public, wants to hold the leader’s feet to the fire on the issue, say White House sources.

“I have not heard a single voice in the White House say give up on healthcare. Everyone keeps saying ‘let’s keep trying and let’s keep pushing,’ ” said one White House source.

“We’re definitely not ready to move on and feel members should keep looking for a way to pass the bill. It would be one thing if it had fallen 30 votes short but they were just one vote shy of passing a bill in the Senate,” the source added.

    McConnell?What can I say.I’m from Kentucky and I am embarrassed that that old Goat is the majority Leader in the Senate.He sickens me,and I have to confess that yes I voted for him.It now seems that Republicans LIED to us for at least 7 years.They couldn’t wait to get the House,Senate and Presidency,and they were going to be ready to Replace Obama Care and pass a lot of bills to fix our Country.And what have they done Nothin,Nada,Zip.All we can do is vote them out at their next reelection.Dump all these old farts who don’t do anything except run their mouths.We need new ideas,these tired old men need to go home and sit in their Rocker on the porch and while we are at it we must demand TERM LIMITS.No more lifers in our Government.All they do is take Bribes to get Rich and to Hell with America.This Must Stop Now.

    John McCain’s vote should be dismissed.. He was a nut pretending to be a Republican before the cancer, The cancer pressing against his brain can cause him to do and say things he normally wouldn’t do… Obamacare is killing the elderly and that’s what Obama’s plan was.. Withholding treatment that could make them well and just giving them pain meds until they die.. These areprecious people have given much to society.. Please Mr. President… Repeal Obamacare…. and read Pete’s comment.. Yea Pete tell it like it is…

    Mr President PLEASE end the premium subsidies to the congress and their staffs that were awarded by an administrative decision of the Obama white house. Just do it.
    While your at it, hold in abeyance any supplemental payments to the insurers until the ACA is repealed.

    Time to hold the RINOs to their campaign promises and REPEAL the unACA. The next election voters are going to remember the RINOs that tried to screw them and lied to get elected – it will have the effect of term limits.
