Looks to me more like Trump needs to be heard, dealt with, and coerced to support We the People! You're forgetting who works for whom.
Trump seems to want to purge the Freedom Caucus and elect more RINOs.
How about 38DD chess ;-)
Exactly. I blame Ryan.
Ivanka IS a liberal Democrat.
I think the bill would have had 450+ votes against it if it had come to a vote. Everything we saw was just political posturing.
If this is Ivanka and Jarod advising Trump, we’re screwed!
“...Most of the HFC were members of NeverTrump, and were working for Hillary to win.”
You are either delusional, ignorant, or are engaged in lies. Lying is, of course, the stock-in-trade of the intellectually & morally bankrupt. You can be better than this!
Unsubscribed from all Trump email lists.
There will be no further contributions.
Trump doesn’t want me on his team? Fine with me. His team is obviously named “NeoRhinos” anyway. I’m not interested in being a part of it.
Worse Kabar, have you been over to the CTU and read Sundance's take on it? How were the Koch Bros envolved? Club for Growth, Heritage? I don't trust them anymore. Are these guys real tea partiers or are they sell outs too. And which one of these rocket scientist nixed planned parenthood in this bill? That was a poison pill to loose Collins and what's her name from Alaska, do that in the next budget not here.
It wasn't perfect, but as Lou Dobbs and Betsy McCaughley said it was a Jobs Bill, it did get rid of the Ocare Job mandates which restaurants are begging for ( BTW I have a background in taxes, I read the Ryan Bill, there were some gems in their ). Yes the 3 step plan was problematic, but it destroyed Obamacare slowly and painfully as an inside job and I couldn't wait to watch the Dems skiyat as it did.
It is time for them to come to the table and make it work. Someone here or @ CTH said send them all off ( our leadership and key players etc ) to a Mil-Base / private location and take their phones, house them and feed them until it is done.
Works for me...
When you embarrass the boss publicly and contribute to his defeat in his first major initiative, there is a price to pay. This could have been avoided if the FC had gone behind closed doors and worked out a deal privately. No one should have been allowed to leave the room until a consensus was reached.
Well stated. Time to get over “ feelings “ and come to the best interm deal, and concrete steps going forward.
And if these RINOs could use it to get rid of conservatives, then he’s beat them.
Keep in mind they are calling Freedom Caucus Area 51 caucus.
In other words, they’re crazy.
If Trump or you or anyone tries to primary Dave Brat, whom I worked hard to elect to remove the weasel Eric Cantor, they become my political opponents.
Thats hardly war. Lets drop the exaggerations. Trumps just trying to send them a message that they better not make a habit of standing in the way of his agenda. Tax reform and infrastructure are up next on the agenda. If they oppose him on those things (because of the border adjustment tax and more federal spending) and stop his bills from passing, then hes going to come out of that looking not only serially incompetent, but also impotent to get anything done. This could be disastrous to brand Trump like that so early in his presidency. And, of course, he still wants to get something accomplished with Obamacare, knowing that he has very little leeway for dissenters if he wants something to actually pass both houses (which should be the goal).
Trump is certainly smart enough to realize he needs the Freedom Caucus members on immigration and other important conservative issues. I dont think hes trying to go to war with them. I think he is putting pressure on them to be willing to compromise with him so he can really make some major changes in this country, while he still has the opportunity to do so. Trump knows negotiation. Hes playing the carrot and stick game. He first tried dangling the carrot, by buttering them up and giving in to a lot of their demands. But that didnt work, so now hes attempting the stick strategy. Hes a smart tactician. I wouldnt make too much of that.
President Trump’s priorities are exactly right on all the urgent issues we face today.
He just needs to conduct a mass firing, drain the damn swamp and implement his agenda to MAGA!!!
“He needs to be able to count on their words.”
I remember some words I hear about 500 times that I counted on. “repeal and replace”.
Mark Meadows for President!
LOL. Good one. Do you write comedy for a living?
So now we are throwing the FC under the bus for the sake of Trump?
When does this madness end? Seriously, what is the direction we (FR) are taking here?
Pinging the owner because I think this is reaching insane levels of spin.
What do you mean “disinformation”? It’s a frickin’ tweet!
“Most of the HFC were members of NeverTrump, and were working for Hillary to win.”
That’s is an absolutely inane comment. The FC embodies the principles that this very forum is based. In case you don’t believe that ask JimRob himself.
