Spending bills, debt ceiling complicate Hill Republicans’ efforts on taxes, ObamaCare

June 4, 2017

694940094001_5389421099001_5389411659001-vsThe GOP-controlled Congress returns Monday in what members and top staffers say will be one of the busiest Junes in years — as Republicans try to pass ObamaCare reform or another top item on President Trump’s legislative agenda.

Their goal to give Trump — and themselves — a major win during the president’s first year in office continues to be complicated by additional legislative challenges and the ongoing Capitol Hill investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential elections.

Lawmakers are way behind on the annual spending legislation to keep the government fully operational past September and likely will have to pass another stop-gap measure.

In addition, they recently were informed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that they will have to raise the federal government’s borrowing limit before August, a daunting task ripe for brinkmanship.

Senate Republicans say they are working daily behind closed doors to craft an ObamaCare overhaul bill, following the House last month passing its version. However, Republicans appear less than optimistic about crafting a bill that at least 51 of its 52 senators will sign.

    Lets see if I got it right, no Healthcare reform till next year, no budget till after September at the earliest, tax reform is behind schedule and they only have seven weeks before their next long vacation. In that seven weeks the have to raise the debt celling. On top of everything Trump has failed to unite the party or the country which makes getting things done harder. Did I miss anything? Oh I did, the Russian investigations.

      Right back to blaming Trump. You are such an a$$ hole. It took Obama 2 years for health care. What did you say about that? I bet you would wipe Obama’s a$$ with your tongue and smile about it.
      You’re an a$$ hole.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        So did I get anything wrong in my summing up the Fox News article? Obama isn’t president anymore and the republicans have both congress and White House. You can’t blame Obama for the fact that the republicans can’t run the nation. In two and a half years the republicans in congress hasn’t come up with anything, what are they waiting for?

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          It takes time to straighten out 8 years of a pubic headed fool!

          1. bobnstuff says:

            The republicans have held the congress for two and a half years and they still have no plan? Trump has been president for five months and has next to nothing to show for it except an incomplete staff a bunch of investigations and damaged relationship with our allies. I guess you could blame that all on Obama. As I asked did I get anything wrong from the article? Remember Fox is still his friend.

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            2 years compared to 8 years, and yes we blame Opey and his plants, such as the judges he’s appointed everywhere, and then the Dems blocking everything within their power! But your party will continue to pay!!

          3. bobnstuff says:

            Blame it bon the Democrats. Deflect and deny only works for so long. Obama only had the congress for less then two years then the republicans blocked everything within their powers. My party is paying alright, some Johnny come lately came and tried to take it over but we still have some good people left fighting the good fight. These newcomers call us names but we know who the true republicans are. It sure isn’t the Freedom Coalition.

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            Name 3 good Dems. that are not socialist!!

          5. bobnstuff says:

            Donnelly, Heitkamp and Sen. Joe Manchin III

          6. Rodney Steward says:

            Manchin not so much, he was a very big fan of Lying Lynch! 🙂

          7. chw2000 says:

            Well, well, well. BSBob, you’ve shown your true colors. Still a total a$$ hole. Liberal loon!

          8. bobnstuff says:

            I guess once again you are clueless as to who these people are and just making noise as always.

          9. chw2000 says:

            You’ve described yourself perfectly! Way to go BSBob. Still an a$$ hole.

          10. bobnstuff says:

            Since you don’t even know who those people are I would say you are clueless.

          11. chw2000 says:

            I’m “clueless”? You’re the one that’s “clueless” . Of course I know who these people are. AND, I know that you’re a liberal a$$ hole. You BSBob, will never understand the meaning of intelligence. Bye, Bye a$$ hole.

          12. I Seigel says:

            Tell us what the Dems have blocked? All of Trumps appointments? Um, there haven’t been very many. So nothing to block.

          13. Rodney Steward says:

            Exactly, but wait till this special investigation gets oing good that the Dems are already wishing they hadn’t started, it’s going to hurt the Dems. a lot ore than the Rep.! Probably be another 1,000 seats!! 🙂

          14. I Seigel says:

            We’ll see. If it winds up causing the impeachment of Trump, it might hurt the Republicans more than the Dems. On the other hand, Pence is already getting his campaign machine going, so we might have Pence for 7 years rather than Trump for 4. That WOULD hurt the Dems more!!

            But I have a feeling that’s not what you were predicting….

          15. Rodney Steward says:

            Nope, not worried about Trump, Obama and his whole tribe of White house thugs have a lot of trash on them! They just started another investigation on Hellary again, and this on might hurt a little!

          16. I Seigel says:

            Oh really? I hadn’t heard about the Hillary investigation. Tell me about it. Post a link to a news story. I’m curious.

          17. Rodney Steward says:

            I’ve not seen a link yet, sure there will be one some where before the week is out! It’s been on FOX NEWS a few times today! It’s about some Prince somewhere filing charges for being harassed about their foundation! Don’t hold me to this, it may be wrong, but I heard something on this but I’ve been in and out a lot today! I’m trying to be Honest about this!!

          18. I Seigel says:

            If that’s true, and a Prince is filing charges about being harassed, that doesn’t sound like a federal case or cause for a Congressional investigation.

            I just checked the FoxNews.com website. There’s no mention of this on their site. Interesting…..

          19. Rodney Steward says:

            Well they’e been hitting on the foundation for a while, but with this special investigation I think a lot will be solved, or not, it’s all one big game! There’s really 2 parties, the Gov. and the people!!

          20. I Seigel says:

            It only took Obama a few months to start straightening out Bush’s mess. The only thing Trump has accomplished is to be the anti-Obama. And he’s gotten the House to pass a mess of a health care bill, which the Senate hasn’t even looked at yet.

          21. Rodney Steward says:

            He’s done away with most everything Opey did that most was needed bad! At least now everyone knows what bathroom to use! 🙂

          22. bobnstuff says:

            Were you confused?

          23. Rodney Steward says:

            NOOO, but Opey had a problem with it, YOU??

          24. bobnstuff says:

            I could care less who uses what bathroom. You do seem to have a problem with it though.

          25. Rodney Steward says:

            So you have no problem with one of your girls going into a bathroom with a cross dresser, you’re a typical Dem. bobby, and one day you’ll pay for this sickness!

          26. bobnstuff says:

            You have oh so little knowledge on this subject and I don’t feel a need to try and explain the difference between a cross dresser and a transsexual. They are not the same and I have no problems with a transsexual using the restroom that they identify with.

          27. Rodney Steward says:

            You really seem to be up on this sick BS! Are you a ……

          28. I Seigel says:

            Yeah, the really important stuff.

          29. Rodney Steward says:

            You mean some of it was important, which part, destroying our healthcare or infesting our country with illegals from South of the border to the made up refugees, to cleaning out thugs from prison, what a guy!

          30. bobnstuff says:

            You mean those worker coming to pick our crops and do the jobs our citizens won’t do that has been happening for thirty years?

          31. Rodney Steward says:

            Most don’t come to work anymore, the Opey tribe told them how the system works, now they’re her fo the freebees! They need to do like the old days, take prisoners and let them do the job for nothing and send the disease infested rats back home!

          32. bobnstuff says:

            Oh no my BS alarm is going off. You can’t complain about illegals taking people jobs and then not working. Since they get no benefits because they are illegal they work. Once again you are talking out your back side.

          33. Rodney Steward says:

            And once again you’re UNINFORMED as usual!!

    2. Rodney Steward says:

      And just think bobby, the Russian thing was invented by the Dems. that have much more to hide than Trump, and is why it is a constant rant by the left! So far there are NO FACTS, but Hellary’s Uranium deal, and Obama’s, when I get PUT back in office, tell Putin I’ll have more flexibility, FACTS! Yes, they have much more dirty laundry to hide and it goes much deeper! They’re beginning to regret this special investigation, names are now coming out they weren’t expecting! Sam. Powers is one of them, and her hands are as dirty as your brain is messed up, with that disease most Dems. have!

      1. bobnstuff says:

        No facts you claim. very funny. Your only defense is Hillary did something, Obama said something. Try using something about Trump to defend him. It’s his own party that’s investigating him. Deflect as much as you want it’s Trump that’s in trouble. It’s also the Republicans that can’t get their act together to run the country.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Other than great, Trump has already accomplished more than YO BOY ever did, other than the madness of his lust for our destruction that does not CLICK in the brains of the Dems., but it is a sick Disease!

          1. bobnstuff says:

            So tell me about Trumps great accomplishments. Repeal and replace on hold till next year, tax reform not even started, jobs, numbers are going the wrong way, The wall not started or funded, the list just keeps going on and on. Worst start in almost a hundred years.

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            First off he’s repealed almost everything Obama did, that was a great start, like his sick bathroom law, stopped most of his gun restrictions, making sanctuary cities against the law, that’s really UnConstitutional anyway! Got out of the climate change SCAM that was costing us 80 million$$$ a year! And it’s only been 4 months, not his fault congress is not use to working, under Opey they didn’t do NOTHING at all !!

          3. bobnstuff says:

            In fact he has tried to repeal things but he doesn’t know how to do it. Almost all of Obama’s EO’s and regulations still stand. Even pulling out of the Paris Accords will not happen for three years. The gun restrictions under Obama were very few in fact were mostly aimed at making sure people who shouldn’t under law buy guns couldn’t buy them. As far as sanctuary cities they weren’t created by Obama. You don’t even know what Obama did or didn’t do. You truly are clueless in what is and what isn’t constitutional. So lets try again what has Trump & Company really accomplished.

      2. I Seigel says:

        OMG, all this winning!! Are you tired of winning yet, Rodney?? I know I’m exhausted from all this winning.

        Do you think Trump will get around to nominating someone to be ambassador to South Korea before the next missile launch?

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Probably not, congress isn’t use to doing much, remember, under Opey they didn’t have to do anything, he always went around them!

          1. I Seigel says:

            All Congress had to do back then was Just Say No. Now they actually have to work for their paychecks, and they’re failing miserably.

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            No one wanted to be the first one to be called racist, because Obama had race cards in every pocket, and why there will never be another black President! That was why no one said NO!!

          3. I Seigel says:

            What are you talking about Rodney? What do you mean “no one said NO”? Have you not been listening for the past 8 years? All the Republicans said for 8 years was “NO”. From Day 1, their main objective was to make Obama a one-term president. Don’t you remember?

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            My God, the BOY was babied to death, and the media kept his a$$ baby powdered! No one bucked up to him like they have Trump, he was treated like a God and no one tried to say NO on the debt he run up, over 10 trillion in 8 years, over doubled it! And he was put in the second time, don’t care what anyone says!

          5. I Seigel says:

            He certainly wasn’t “babied to death” by McConnell, Ryan, Boehner, etc. You know – the leadership in the House and Senate.

            I don’t see Congress now bucking up to Trump. They’re the ass-powderers now! You know – McConnell, Ryan, McCarthy – and every other Republican in Congress

          6. Rodney Steward says:

            You started out right, the Rino gang, Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, but left out the worst ones, McCain and Graham! Remember, Boehner played Golf with Opey and washed each others balls!
