They told me if I didn't vote for Trump, nothing would be done about ObamaCare and the President would be happy -- and they were right!The state of CA didn't go after V. Stiviano for illegally taping Donald Sterling's racist rants. It has here. These are political decisions.
Retweeted by PattericoYou know who this benefits? might be overstating it a bit but it's funny going, @JayCaruso! @nadinecarroll Fair enough. @nadinecarroll And she confused Trump saving us from TrumpCare with Trump pushing TrumpCare and losing. She gets confused a lot.Another song I wrote long ago, covered by the amazing Jamie @Woolford: "In Your Mind." as much of a fantasy as her insistence that Trump saved us from TrumpCare. Bar Association blasts Neil Gorsuch as "not qualified" due to ideological failures and shortcomings, foolish adherence to originalism.

Retweeted by PattericoAny deal that Democrats like is a GREAT DEAL got tired of this sort of "winning" proof they never were serious about repealing Obamacare in the first place.
Retweeted by PattericoEpidemic of "fake news" in west erodes public confidence in leaders. DPRK peoples, consuming only truthful news, are protected from slanders

Retweeted by Patterico"We can’t give up. Republicans promised repeal. The time to deliver is now."

@dkahanerules If I'm prosecuting Trump for self-dealing, you don't make it on my jury! :/) @dkahanerules He retains ownership stake and repeatedly takes huge entourages there. Self-dealing. Proved. @dkahanerules Self-dealing.Analysis: Trump has visited a Trump property nearly 1 out of every 3 days he has been in office…
Retweeted by Patterico @Jjones8025M The 2015 bill got to Obama's desk and was vetoed. @TankerKC There aren't really 578, I was joking. @DrewMarlowe That's different: you dare someone not to do something they promised to do. Freedom Caucus never promised to support this dog.What's needed: guaranteed renewability, transitional relief for those w/pre-existing conditions, & equal tax treatment of individual plans.The 2015 "full repeal" vote, btw, was not full repeal because it left the pre-existing conditions requirement in place. That has to go too.Dear R's in Congress: Ignore Trump in negotiations and send bills to his desk. He'll take those as wins bc he has no other choice.
Retweeted by Patterico @RadioFreeTom Did you save the language of the original claim in the piece? I'd like to read that, for grins.OK,maybe not quite 578 but it's still a good long rant. Read them all. is not chief legislator, Republicans. It's your Congress and your agenda, not his. Pass the 2015 repeal and dare Trump to veto it.
BREAKING --- At top of her show, @JudgeJeanine calls on @SpeakerRyan to step down after this from POTUS -->>
Retweeted by Patterico @VictorB123 Link? @VictorB123 They did in 2015. I realize that was a show vote but they should be forced to do it again."Judge Jeanine," Donald Trump television lawyer, is called ignorant of basic rules of procedure.
Retweeted by Patterico @VictorB123 What they GOT was a bill forced on them that did not take their concerns into account. And then told "this is not a debate." @VictorB123 "[H]e agrees with...Trump that Republicans bear the responsibility of repealing and replacing the law simultaneously." @VictorB123 In the link you supplied it looked like he called for simultaneous repeal and replace. Said Trump agreed. @RepRickAllen I'm one of your voters. Put the 2015 bill back up for vote and pass that (again). #Repeal
Retweeted by Patterico @AustinScottGA08 No, he helped spike horrible bill as he should have. You need to listen to who elected you. Hint: not liberals. GA12 voter.
Retweeted by Patterico @VictorB123 I missed the reference to the 2015 law. And it has Ryan committed to repeal and replace simultaneously.Link? Piece from January has Ryan (pressured by Trump) wanting repeal & replace concurrently see you were a yes on the 2015 repeal vote. Bring up that one again. Or was that a show vote?…"betrayed Trump""I can't be doing so badly because I'm president and you're not." I remember being irked at Obama's arrogance and high-handedness. (!!)
Retweeted by PattericoHealth care vote fails, Trump shrugs and goes to play golf. Obama has a major meeting on the N.Y.C. Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but decided to play golf!
Retweeted by PattericoWe pay for Obama's travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies. Then we pay for his golf.
Retweeted by PattericoPresident Obama played golf yesterday???
Retweeted by PattericoCan you believe that,with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.Worse than Carter
Retweeted by Patterico“I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf,” he said.
Retweeted by PattericoWish I could be on the golf course but have to work - must be nice to be President
Retweeted by PattericoRemember when Republicans promised they would try to fiddle with Obamacare for a few weeks and then give up?
Retweeted by PattericoSo which House Republican will challenge @SpeakerRyan for speaker on the “I will keep our promise on #ObamaCare” ticket?
Retweeted by PattericoUniversal government-provided TrumpCare., but I may call for @SpeakerRyan to be ousted as Speaker. @gubanok By the way I could live with 216 votes since that would pass the bill.No, Paul Ryan didn't leave the White House blaring 'Papa Roach' via @DCExaminer
Retweeted by Patterico @gubanok Yup. They must put up the same bill and see who voted for it then who is unwilling to vote for it now.It is unacceptable for @SpeakerRyan to say the GOP is giving up on repealing ObamaCare.Bannon walked into Freedom Caucus meeting,said "This is not a debate. You have no choice but to vote for this bill.…
Retweeted by PattericoDon't feel bad. There's almost no chance Trump has read it either.
Retweeted by PattericoCruz just lied again- I am, and have been totally against #ObamaCare- repeal and replace!
Retweeted by PattericoSupreme Leader Kim Jong-Un repeals and replaces United States law known as "Obamacare," simply to show Donald Trump that he can.
Retweeted by Patterico @gubanok There were way more than that before. @Barbie_Sandwich George W. Bush attempted to rescind Obama's legislation? Huh?
Most people don't have to. Google it. one that he was 1000% behind, dimtwit @MikeFreddoso He got it before and he has not tried this path this time. I would like him to try.Paul Ryan: There Is a Path to Repealing ObamaCare Without 60 Votes in the Senate.'So, next year, if we're sending this bill to a Republican president, it will get signed into law." -- Paul Ryan"We have now shown that there is a clear path to repealing Obamacare without 60 votes in the Senate." -- Paul Ryan"starting to" bill was always about politics of repealing Obamacare, never about repealing Obamacare. It was destined to fail by a substantial margin.
