Why The Latest GOP Health Care Plan Is The Best One Yet

John Daniel Davison, The Federalist

Given that straight repeal is apparently impossible for this Congress, Graham-Cassidy might be the next best thing. Why? Because allowing states to experiment with different health-care policies is the only thing that will drive down the cost of health insurance so more Americans can afford it.

Congress, fix and pass this Obamacare replacement

Editors, Washington Examiner

The bill doesn't grant states enough leeway on regulation. For one thing, it ties regulatory waivers to the receipt of federal funds. This would make the waivers impotent the next time a Democrat wins the White House, making this faux-federalism. The urgency of replacing Obamacare cannot be understated. Give competitive federalism a chance; it's what the country's founders had in mind. It's urgent that senators improve this bill, then pass it.

McLaughlin Poll Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018

The central message of the poll is “dance with the one who brung ya,” and more specifically, dance with the Trump voters and their agenda.

One Down 40 – 50 To Go

Rep. Charles Dent a leader of the RINO Tuesday Group is retiring. Our take on the Tuesday Group is 1 down, 40 – 50 to go, they are each guilty until proven innocent by their votes, so primary them all.

Republicans Wave the White Flag on Obamacare

David Catron, The American Spectator

It is very likely that Lamar Alexander and his Senate HELP committee will use the recommendations of governors like John Kasich as the basis for the inevitable proposal to bail out Obamacare. They are obviously determined to surrender to the Democrats on this issue, regardless of their promises to the voters during the last four election cycles.

The Only Problem Facing President Trump’s Tax Reform Ideas

We are all for the President’s tax reform principles, but we hope he understands that, like Obamacare repeal, the problem getting it passed isn’t the Democrats, it’s the establishment Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

Conservatives Launching GOP Primary Challenges

Shak Hill in VA-10 and State Representative Barry Moore in AL-2 are getting the attention of conservative handicappers in their campaigns against establishment congressional incumbents and we look forward to more principled limited government constitutional conservative candidates taking the fight to other “white flag” incumbents in other House districts.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say McConnell Must Step Down

More than 97% of self-identified conservatives said that McConnell needs to be replaced by “someone who will fulfill Republican campaign promises.” Only about 2% agreed with McConnell that President Trump is demonstrating “excessive expectations.”

Your Mission During August Recess: Start The Debt Ceiling Battle

All presidents want a clean debt ceiling increase. The only way automatic debt ceiling increases will stop is if grassroots conservatives turn out and demand that spending be cut, as President Trump’s budget proposed, and that Congress implement debt reforms now.

There’s No ‘Bipartisan’ Solution to Fix Obamacare

Stephen Moore, The American Spectator

Republicans have infuriated conservative voters for failing to repeal Obamacare. That failure may at some point be forgiven by voters as a good faith effort against stiff resistance in Washington. What conservatives will never forgive is if the GOP works with Pelosi and Schumer to sanctify the Obamacare law as another permanent and unreformable entitlement.

Senate Republicans not ready to give up on Obamacare repeal

Robert King, Washington Examiner

Since the Senate failed last week to pass a "skinny" repeal bill, Senate GOP leadership has sent a clear message it is moving on to tax reform and bipartisan talks for a short-term Obamacare market stabilization bill. But some Republicans are not giving up on the years-long promise of repeal despite questions over whether the GOP conference can reach a consensus.

John McCain's Obamacare vote was indefensible

John Fund, National Review

Far from being a modern-day “profile in courage,” McCain’s vote against advancing Obamacare reform represents a complete reversal of the position he won his Senate election with last year. In what may prove to be one of the most important votes he has cast in his 35 years in Congress, he chose to operate like the standard-issue politicians he likes to rail against.

Mr. President, End The Congressional Obamacare Scam

It is time to make Congress live like the rest of us, and end their illegal “small business” Obamacare scam and their gold-plated subsidies and see how fast they run to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market system.

It's Time To Drain The Swamp In The GOP

We conservatives need to translate the grassroots rage over the betrayals of Republican elected officials into a national conversation about the future of the Republican Party and a wave of national activism to nominate and elect “Drain the Swamp” Republicans to the House of Representatives and the US Senate.

Ted Cruz: Voters will feel 'sense of betrayal' over Obamacare failure

Pete Kasperowicz, Washington Examiner

"I tell you this, if you stand up and campaign and say we're going to repeal Obamacare, and you vote for Obamacare, those are not consistent," Cruz said. "And the American people are entirely justified in saying, 'any politician who told me that and voted the other way didn't tell me the truth. They lied to me.'"

The Establishment GOP Is Committing Suicide By Lie

If the Capitol Hill Republican establishment can’t pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that they already passed in 2015, then it is time for conservatives to recognize this is no longer a family disagreement, take the gloves off and declare war on those who reneged on their 2015 vote.

Trump Should Pocket Minor Healthcare Win and Move to Tax Reform Immediately

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Tax reform -- by jump-starting the economy -- will actually do much more for the health of the populace than any possible healthcare legislation, which would be a kludge anyway, even if better than Obamacare, which is the kludge of kludges, no one (including Obama himself, who lied about it incessantly) knowing what's in it to this day. With tax reform people will have more money to pay for everything -- including their health.

The Bizarre World Of The Republican Senate

It is a bizarre world indeed when perpetual maverick Senator John McCain saves the vote to repeal and replace Obamacare and also gives one of the more sensible analyses of why the process is a mess.
