After failing to pass ObamaCare Repeal and Repeal-Replace last Thursday and Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shrugged his shoulders, and said, "Oh Well. You win some, you lose some. We're moving on!"

President Trump..in disbelief over how easily McConnell was willing to walk away from preventing the ObamaCare meltdown, is demanding that the Senate make adjustments and vote again. In fact, he doesn't want Congress leaving for their long Summer vacation until they Repeal-Replace ObamaCare.

Good Read!: www.foxnews.com...

President Trump probably views Congress as spoiled and lazy. He's used to getting smacked down, getting back up...and trying again, and again, and again.

You'd think that the coming ObamaCare disaster, which all Republican Senators spoke of, would motivate them to help Americans on ObamaCare avoid it! And to do so with a sense of urgency. Not to simply say, "Oh Well.. We didn't get it done. Time to move on."

So what do you think ATS.. Should Congress stay in D.C. and keep working on Repeal-Replace? Or, should they move on to Tax Reform, Debt Ceiling, etc., and let ObamaCare continue unraveling, if President Trump decides not to patch it up?

Keep in mind that Congress only has about 48 more working days remaining in 2017. (Disgusting isn't it?)

Exactly right! How can 7 years of promises, and landslide election wins, end in a shrug of shoulders and a whimper! Even a 5 year old will keep trying to ride his bicycle after each tumble.

Maybe we no longer need politicians as we know them.

It takes no skill.

Maybe we should sell lottery tickets.

The winner gets to be a politician for a term.

There should be a special referendum by the president to recall all these key people from their jobs. Repeal them and replace them.

Maybe they should come up with a decent replacement bill? Maybe? It seems like Trump and the GOP are blaming everybody but themselves.

I blame both parties. The Dems for being dumb enough for putting Obamacare into existence. The Reps for being to dumb to fix it. They are both equally dumb and lazy.

The bill Republicans introduced was a mess. Everybody knows this. It came from the GOP and the GOP alone. They hold the majority and they couldn't get full support over this 'skinny' version. Stop playing the sitting on the fence game. When the GOP and this administration flubs up, hold them accountable just like you would the Democrats.

it didn't even come from the republicans, just a small group of them. even the republicans were complaining about how the process went. it doesn't help much that there's a wide divide within the republican party itself and they can't even come up with a compromise between themselves.

I'm sure that we will see another attempt in the near future, hopefully this time around they will be more concerned about actually doing something to fix the healthcare system instead of pushing this far right position that would do more harm than good. it would also be nice if they came up and presented an entire plan instead of trying piecemeal the thing.
but, at the moment, they have more important financial matters to contend with..

Hold on a second. If my memory serves me correctly --- and I'm damned sure I'm right on this --- it was Donald that promised EVERYONE a better, less expensive (I believe her referred to it as 'beautiful') healthcare plan as soon as he was in office. I don't remember him saying anything about the GOP or Congress having to do anything (Yea, come on, I know who passes legislation). But the way DT marketed this whole thing it suggested that HE had a plan. I mean he said the foregoing indicating that there was a plan or at least an outline of one. Now all of a sudden it's a GOP/Congress problem. THEY didn't make that promise. It was Donald that made that promise. Sure, I knew it was BS than as much as it's BS now but still... HE made the promise. HE owns it.

Obamacare is a massive social program. Removing it is obviously a less expensive plan.

Can he provide the services of Obamacare cheaper?

No. That was never the promise.

I'm not sure which is worse-

-That Congress is a bunch of lazy children refusing to do their chores,

- or that the president just had to tell them they don't get to go out and play until their chores are done


Maybe next he'll start docking their allowances

it's possible that there was a plan that came closer to trump's description than obamacare is...
but they wanted to rush it through, didn't reveal the whole plan to anyone, couldn't pass the whole thing without the dem support, and decided to take what they saw was the easy road, repeal, then worry about replacing. we should just trust him that once all of the plan is unveiled, it will be tremendous.. repeal first, through a method that didn't need any dem support, then when the system starts to blow up, the dems will be forced to accept whatever they republicans presented or watch the system crash to the ground leaving communities not only with no insurance coverages but no hospitals also.

only, trump seems to be working hard at proving himself not that trustworthy. and, healthcare is a rather large segment of the economy. they need to take the time to do it right!

The problem is the way money is allocated.

Everyone avoids this as the issue, even Trump.

Obamacare is too expensive because the allocation, not because it's unaffordable.

No matter what 'plan' Trump unveils, it's cuts. The simpletons argue it's too expensive, so he will cut it.

If Trump became the President that solved single-payer, this would make Obamacare successful because all the services would be cheaper, so making it work is off the table because politically that helps his 'enemy'.

Repeal it is the only logical action forward, so naturally the Democrats are whining like he's evil for this and making it a controversy. They know it's completely unaffordable. Trump himself only makes things more difficult talking about actually making a second terrible plan that will likely be just as unaffordable.

This aside, the crux of the issue is Obamacare is 'expensive' and people still don't fully understand this was on purpose either, to push people towards a single pool subsidy option. Obama wants Obamacare to be 'fixed' more than he wanted Obamacare to 'exist' from it's creation. Essentially the system of insurance allocation, that he touched far less than services. He knew improving services would work it's way around to allocation efficiency eventually so he made it expensive on purpose adding many new benefits and then pointed to a more efficient way collecting the money. Short of creating something from nothing, there is no other way to keep Obamacare or anything similar without improving the way money is taken in.

The true issue is a bunch of fence sitters who know Single-Payer is better, but hate the word Obama. The best possible outcome is Trump making single-payer and ALSO repealing Obamacare, so we can determinate services we want, rather than explicitly adding services for the purpose of making it expensive, rashly for the purpose of forcing us to switch funding options.
