Fox News ^ | 3-27-17 | Cavuto

Posted on 03/27/2017 4:43:37 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Former Lieutenant Gov. Betsy McCaughey (R-New York) said Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) misled Congress and President Trump as he crafted the failed ObamaCare replacement bill.

"He looks like a boy scout but he wasn't prepared," McCaughey, author of "Beating ObamaCare" said, in reference to the Boy Scout motto of 'Be Prepared'.

Ryan looks like a corrupt politician who’s in it for his own political future, not America’s future.

He had good reason to think she'd be more supportive of the AHCA bill. She's been a very harsh critic of Obamacare and established herself as one of the leading authorities on health care reform, and has recommended overturning Obamacare with some very simple measures. None of the measures she proposed in an interview she gave on Larry Kudlow's radio show last month were included in the Ryan bill -- and yet she was all over the airwaves in recent weeks pushing Ryan's stupid and ineffective bill.

I'm convinced some of these people are nothing more than paid shills who get on these news programs and spout nonsense.

Ryan looked like a status quo toadie. He’s been effectively neutralized. The Helathcare conversation will continue without him.

Betsy was 100% dead-on...and Cavuto reacted like the Establishment RINO that he is...and always has been.

btw, Jim Jordon is trying to re-introduce the 2015 “Repeal ONLY” bill but Lyin’ Ryan has it bottled up in committee.

“Ryan looks like a corrupt politician who’s in it for his own political future, not America’s future.”

I agree with you 1000%. Ryan is still Romney’s boy and they were and still are anti-Trump with selfish goals. Ryan needs to be taken down from speaker and needs to be out of the picture.

I’m glad McCaughey has chimed in on this. She was very outspoken against Hillary’s health care plan.

You hit the nail on the head. He's another Kasich. Self-serving bastard.

But she wrote an op-ed supporting it a couple of weeks ago.

Somebody has set her straight. Perhaps it was this guy:

Ryan 'Looks Like a Boy Scout But Wasn't Prepared'

He, and the rest of the GOPe had nearly eight years to figure out the repeal. Sent repeals to Bowbama on how many, eight, occasions? Why weren't they ready on day one? Because, Ryan and the rest of the elites didn't want to repeal it. That gives them, as well as the Dummiecrats, control over the masses!

FPR! And, the horse he rode in on!

In which case — her support of the AHCA, her comments tonight on Cavuto’s show, or her prior comments on what needed to be done to “fix” Obamacare?

Cannon is a pit bull when it comes to adiosing Obamacare.

He thinks it can be done via reconciliation, which Rep.Louie Gohmert also thinks it can be adiosed that way.
