For those wondering if Trump is playing Ryan and McConnell with a long term plan of an actual repeal vs the disaster amendment Paul Ryan is pushing… the truth has been revealed and it isn’t pretty.
Donald Trump is all in for #RINOcare.
Not only is he all in, he now appears to be lobbing indirect threats at conservatives who wish to hold fast on their promise to repeal Obamacare over cowering to the big government amendment pushed by Paul Ryan.
Indeed, this morning upon arrival at Capitol Hill, President Trump asked House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows to stand up amongst the crowd of members present. While Meadows was standing Trump said “I’m gonna come after you” while pressuring everyone in the room to get on board with #RINOcare.
“I’m asking for your vote on Thursday,” Trump added. “Many of you came in on the pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare. I honestly think many of you will lose your seats in 2018 if you don’t get this done.”
Of course, the statement could have been a half-joke. A lighthearted attempt to let those present know Trump wants them to help pass the amendment to Obamacare. But the truth is it made clear that Trump isn’t working on some play that provides an alternative to Ryan’s amendment. Trump fully endorses the #RINOcare amendment and believes it somehow fulfills the promise to fully repeal Obamacare.
Unfortunately, the #RINOcare amendment does nothing of the sort. The top ten conservative concerns over the amendment tells you everything you need to know about the legislation.
The Ryan #RINOcare amendment is now also Trump’s plan.
As we pointed out earlier today, Paul Ryan’s house Republicans are playing with fire. A fire that Trump is now no longer immune to.
We’re now just two days out from a likely house vote and we here at LibertyNEWS.com hope house conservatives stand their ground. This amendment will continue to devastate our economy and further destroy the health system of America.
It must be stopped. And hopefully our President will come back around to this view.
