    Speaker Paul Ryan: You’re Fired.

    The AHCA was DOA on the First Day. Why? It wasn’t repeal—and then the bill was pushed on a premise of “replace.” Obamacare does not need to be replaced, either. Government intervention is not needed. If I go to the doctor, I do not want Big Mamma Government telling me to turn my head and cough. This whole “AHCA Y—M-C-A!” (with apologies to the Village People!) has been an overwrought … [Read More...]

    Time to replace Paul Ryan as House speaker.

    Paul Ryan failed miserably in his first important task for the Trump agenda. Since 2009, the Republicans have campaigned in the elections of 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016 that they would repeal and replace Obamacare.  One would think that given this history, the Republican leaders, such as Ryan, would have a well thought out plan to repeal Obamacare.  Ryan probably did not believe that Trump would … [Read More...]
