Would love to see that. Hey Congress GOP - Put your big boy pants on and get rid of that po(c) that you all hated so much a few months ago when running for your current position.
......and then Trump goes to CPAC and says the best path forward may be to just leave it be for a couple of years so it can fail on its own and the Dems beg the GOP to fix it.
Doesn't look like Obamacare is going anywhere. It's become an "entitlement", and no one looking at reelection in the next decade wants to touch entitlements any more.
I wasn't surpriawd. That's been the GOP M.O. lately. big talk, no results.
Hold on. The ACA (ObamaCare) has about 2,000 pages in it. The regulation to implement ObamaCare are over 20,000 pages. The task to re-write, repeal, and replace - seamlessly and smoothly is monstrous. I would expect 12-18 months before anything really happens. I have full faith ObamaCare will be replaced. Trump doesn't care about getting re-elected. The weak kneed GOP wussies that are vacilating are all worried about re-election. Trump will push forward and replace ObamaCare - it just takes time.
Has Trump backed off on any of his promises? No. He'll keep his 4 big promises:
1. Nominate a Conservative judge to the Supreme Court. (Done)
2. Design and build a wall, and secure out southern border. Right now construction companies are working on and submitting bids. In the works.
3. Repeal and replace ObamaCare. Speaker Paul Ryan has promised repeatedly that ObamaCare will be replaced. It will happen. HHS Sec. Tom Price is a huge critic of ObamaCare - and put in the cabinet to replace ObamaCare. It's in the works.
4. Peal away layers of red tape and regulation. Today it was announced Trump is reducing the budgets and size of the State Dept. and EPA. Great news. In the works.
Keep you eye on the prize and have a little faith in Trump's promises. He has not backed away on any of his promises. Ignore the noise from the deceitful MSM that sews discord and doubt.
