    Mitch McConnell has put the Senate Obamacare Repeal and Replace Bill in the leadership of Ted Cruz. McConnell has appointed a GOP Working Group led by Cruz to write a Repeal and Replace Bill. This process bypasses the Senate Committees. This new Senate Bill will go directly to the Senate floor for a vote.

    Now that the language has posted, here are the eight most notable areas Trump caved in his first big spending negotiation: . Administration officials have insisted they already have the statutory authority to start building the wall under a 2006 law. This prevents such an end run. The $1.5 billion for border security is also half as much as the White House requested. Additionally, there are no cuts in funding to sanctuary cities, something a federal judge said last week would be required for the Justice Department to follow through on its threats. And there is also no money for...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro has decided not to seek the Democratic nomination next year to challenge U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, according to Democratic sources, clearing the way for a likely Senate contest next year between Cruz and U.S Rep. Beto O’Rourke of El Paso. Castro, of San Antonio, is expected to announce soon that he will bypass the contest to focus on his work in the House, which includes a coveted seat on the House Intelligence Committee. ~snip~ Castro declared last summer that he planned to weigh a campaign against Cruz and he has done so during a...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz signed on as a co-sponsor to the Hearing Protection Act days before he’s scheduled to speak at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention, where the bill is expected to be a major talking point. The proposed measure has so far gained 14 co-sponsors, all Republicans, in the U.S. Senate and a related measure in the House has gained 137 co-sponsors, including three Democrats. This legislative session is the second round for the bill. When it was proposed in the Senate in 2015, it gained only three sponsors. While the Texas senator was not one of them,...

According to Cruz's press release, the bill would use all funds forfeited to the federal government during the prosecutions of El Chapo and other Mexican drug...

    While the chattering class was lamenting the delay on ObamaCare repeal and replace and promised tax reform, they ignored perhaps the most importance consequence of President Trump’s election, a major accomplishment in his first 100 days, the transformation of the Supreme Court into a conservative and constitutional bastion of freedom. The appointment and confirmation of Judge Neil  Gorsuch has already borne fruit as he cast the deciding vote allowing the execution of multiple Arkansas death row inmates to proceed. As Bloomberg Politics reported: Justice Neil Gorsuch took his first major action on the U.S. Supreme Court by casting the deciding...

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), could retake the White House in 2020 if President Trump and Republicans fail to overcome party divides that threaten their ability to govern.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove. This is the first time the president’s overall approval rating has been back in the 50s in nearly a month. Just after his inauguration, Trump’s job approval peaked at 59% and remained in the 50s every day until early March. It’s gone as low as 42% since then.

    ..... In a very terse but loaded statement, Trump downplayed Bannon's importance in crafting his 2016 campaign strategy and effectively offered him an ultimatum to clear up his issue with Jared Kushner or move on..... ...If Bannon goes, there's no one of similar status in the White House who has the status to push the nationalist agenda to Trump – and more centrist figures are already ascendant (Jivanka, Gary Cohn). Without Bannon's voice, this becomes a much more conventional White House. It would be an acute normalizing of the staff, although no one can normalize Trump.... ....Of course, ousting Bannon...

    Vice President Pence is stepping into Kansas's special House election, recording a robocall urging Republican voters to cast their ballots for the party's congressional nominee on Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reported on Friday. The robocall comes amid shaky support for Kansas State Treasurer Ron Estes, who is running against Democrat James Thompson to fill the House seat vacated by Mike Pompeo, who is now President Trump's CIA director. President Trump won Kansas's 4th District by almost 30 points in November. But Democrats in the district have been energized by the president's low-approval ratings and controversies in his first months in...

    Democratic Congressman Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke, an Irish-American who adopted the Mexican nickname during his childhood in Texas, officially announced on Friday that he will run for U.S. Senate in 2018 against Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas). . . . The Mexican nickname came in handy in 2012 when O'Rourke decided to challenge eight-term incumbent Democrat Silvestre Reyes in a congressional district that is 75 percent Mexican and just 2 percent Irish. O'Rourke won and has since legislated under the belief that he is the representative for both the people of El Paso and neighbor across the U.S. border, Juarez,...

They oppose Trump and have never moved beyond losing in the primary. They are still fighting the 2016 primary race they lost.It appears President Trump has had enough of their ideological gridlock.

    If you were opposed to the Obamacare replacement bill, the American Healthcare Act (AHCA), it was probably because it was hardly the Obamacare replacement we were promised. Congressional Republicans had no problem holding countless votes to repeal all of or parts of Obamacare when Barack Obama was president, yet all of a sudden there’s a hold up, despite the promise there would be an Obamacare repeal bill on Trump’s desk his first week in office. Unfortunately, the AHCA turned out to be nothing more than Obamacare-lite. Daniel Horowitz summed up the problem in Conservative Review, that “the sum of the...

    Well, don’t say we didn’t predict this reality.  The Democrats are smartly not waiting for any recovery efforts by Republicans; and immediately following the failure of President Trump’s healthcare repeal and replacement approach, Senator Bernie Sanders begins putting their ‘single provider’ alternative together.   (Story Link) The strategy is, unfortunately, brilliant.  When Obamacare further collapses, and all Americans are being further crushed by the skyrocketing costs, at exactly the moment when the American electorate are at their most frustrated and everyone is in crisis mode – whammo, here’s the solution. All of the previous opposition to single-provider has been kicked out of the...

    Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio enjoyed the benefit of Millions of dollars from a reclusive yet powerful group during the Presidential Election. These Moguls often join together to push political agendas that help them financially. They claim to be “Conservative”. These fake Conservatives often take advantage of Americans. This group is protected by many Conservative Politicians. Unfortunately, their actions are not always Conservative. This group is called “Club for Growth.” They are heavily funded by the Koch brothers. These Billionaires attach themselves to Conservative and Christians causes.

    It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up...

    This isn't complicated. No vote means the DOW will TANK on Friday. And any further momentum on the economy, and all the other things including the wall, et all, are dead and Schumer and Pelosi wins. As the DOW tanks, the Democrats and their left wing MSM will be non-stop 24x7 telling the American people that "Trump destroyed the economy!". Enough Americans will believe it to put the Democrats back in power. The "conservatives" - those 20 fools - are now the do nothing Republicans. They will taint this Congress as once again the Do Nothing Congress. They say if...
