There is a lot being written about how conservative support for the socialist healthcare replacement is falling apart. And well it should. The Congressional Budget Office has issued an analysis that 24 million people would be uninsured because they would drop out of healthcare. That, however, is not the reason House Speaker Paul Ryan’s bill should be abandoned.
Forced government healthcare is expensive, it ‘provide good care, and it’s socialism in a free market country. If it did pass, Americans should do what they are doing with the current fiasco; do not participate and the result would be the same. It would die a slow death. Ryan may have guaranteed that anyway by hoodwinking the wrong guy.
Breitbart News Network has published a fascinating exclusive story with Ryan saying in October that he will never defend Donald Trump, “Not now or in the future.” Ryan goes on a diatribe on a conference call with House Republican members about how he disinvited Trump from his district and would not be campaigning with him during the last 28 days of the campaign.
This is significant because Ryan appeared to shift his allegiances after the election to become a Trump supporter. The first major legislative item up is repealing socialist healthcare and Ryan, according to Breitbart, misled President Trump into believing that the healthcare bill repealing the current system and that it would pass both Houses.
Now Ryan is hustling conservative votes for a bill that essentially lies to the American people about repealing the ex-“president’s” socialist healthcare failure. He is using scare tactics saying that if this bill is not passed, the healthcare system will collapse. Well, isn’t that what most of us want?
We want free market healthcare for a free market nation. We don’t want the government ciphering off valuable funds for big government waste that could be reducing healthcare costs in the free market. It seems that President Trump feels the same way, but he is now recognizing that Ryan tried to hoodwink him on both the bill’s content and its ability to pass.
Breitbart reported, “The President gave Ryan a chance,” one source close to the president said. “If he doesn’t get his act together soon, the president will have no choice but to step in and fix this on his own. He’s the best negotiator on the planet, and if this were his bill not Ryan’s it would not be this much of a mess.”
Trump is seeing how the “swamp” works. And Ryan is one of the clogs in the swamp’s drain who tried to pull a fast one on the president. The Ryan healthcare bill needs to die a quick death and the president needs to get rid of socialist healthcare as promised.
Proverbs 12:22 says, “Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.” Ryan’s a liar and Trump’s a dealer. Let’s see how it plays out.
Have a blessed and powerful day!
