The Obamacare debacle sent shock waves through Washington D.C. Chuck Schumer’s celebrating and the GOP is having a pity party.
Not the way it is meant to go under total GOP control of government.
But the swamp works in mysterious ways and the muck at the bottom has caught many a man in its clutches.
Dragging them down to the bottom of American politics.
And Trump is not having any of it. He just issued a threat to lawmakers that will make them rethink their position in the swamp.
If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!

In an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News Vice President Mike Pence echoed that and in fact doubled down on Trump’s threat.
“That’s pretty typical of Washington, isn’t it? You, more often than not, see one set of rules for the American people and another set of rules for the political class here in our nation’s capital. but as we move forward, the point is that whether the president makes a decision, it would be his decision whether to rescind that special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs.”
Did Pence just say what I thought he said? It’s about time. Mike Pence is not playing games and it appears neither is President Trump. This is a good idea on so many levels, look Congress, as Federal employees should have to live with the same consequences as stupid laws they pass as the rest of us.
“What we want is a health care system that works for all of the American people.I think the primary goal first is to give people freedom over their own health care choices again.
Fair is fair and Pence went to say,
“The very essence of living in a free society is people get to make their own decisions. But the president and I truly believe that if you lower the cost of health insurance, if you give Americans more choices in health insurance, that more Americans will choose, more employers will choose, to have and offer health insurance to their employees and have health insurance for their families.”
And if you make Congress live with their decision we will without a doubt get better laws coming from the swamp.
Share this if you agree with Mike Pence and President Trump that the swamp is out of luck unless they get with the program.
