On 3/24/2017, House speaker Paul Ryan pulled AHAC, aka Trumpcare from the floor on the President’s orders. They did not have enough GOP votes to pass it so they shelved it.
The President can blame the Democrats, the GOP members of the House who would not, for various reasons, support the vote, or the immigrants. His deflection won’t work. He pushed, bullied, and threatened to no avail. In short, the President lost, vote or not, his tactics fell far short of a victory.
A victory he needed to deflect and dismiss the growing data pointing to both him and his advisors as traitors for receiving Russian favors and money during his campaign and allowing the intrusion of Russian hackers to influence the election in his favor.
A victory he needed to strong arm Neil Gorsuch on to the Supreme Court. He counted on the many victory speeches, parties, and tweet streams to hide the fact that Gorsuch cares not a whit for the people, and throws his opinions in favor of the powerful.
A victory he needed to reinforce his “my way or the highway” attitude. Instead, his belief in overblown self-importance has backfired. He now knows he does not own the Congress, that all GOP members will not fall in for any legislation he supports, that this country’s grassroots, Americans who care about this country, it’s clean air, clean water, and pristine land, are not about to give it all up because the President says so.
The fight is not over. Trumpcare will be back, of that I have not doubt. However, without the President’s preening over his unchallenged power, we can get down to the business of clearing our government of fascists and traitors with clear ties to the Russian government. Our biggest fight will be to get the government to accept safe mode, appoint a special prosecutor with no ties to the White House or Russia, and stop all new bills, legislation, and executive orders until we know our government is clean.
“Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), an ardent and outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump’s actions, has issued a statement calling on the House and the Senate to cease action on all Trump administration items until the FBI has completed its investigation into Donald Trump, his administration and transition teams, and any possible collusion with Russia. That would include the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch tot he Supreme Court, and the health care bill, among many others.”
In the wake of the AHCA, the President will be actively looking for the win he so desperately needs to validate his authority and prove to the world and his puppet-masters that he is the man for the job. To prevent that, the American people, the grassroots resisters, must again come together and insist all non-essential government activity cease until the Russian and other foreign influences are removed from our White House, Congress, and government.
No more lies. No more fake anything. The American people and demand the truth.
