Title: Jim Jordan Crushes Reince Priebus False Narrative on Obamacare Repeal

One of the false narratives peddled by establishment RINO squishes like Reince Priebus in order to get principled conservatives to act like liberal Democrats is to spew the phony premise, “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.”

Priebus said as much to FOX News’ Chris Wallace Sunday when he said, “We can’t be chasing the perfect all the time.”

It was intended to be a slam against the House Freedom Caucus, which insisted that Republicans keep their promise of fully repealing Obamacare, something the failed American Health Care Act (AHCA) did not do and kept in place the entire Obamacare apparatus and many of the regulations that caused health insurance premiums and deductibles to unnecessarily skyrocket.

But as House Freedom Caucus founding member Jim Jordan told MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday, House GOP leadership didn’t come anywhere close to perfection when they crafted Paul Ryan’s health care bill behind closed doors, the bill dubbed Obamacare 2.0, Obamacare Lite, RINOCARE, or Swampcare. Far from seeking perfection, the bill “wasn’t even good.”

“The lesson here is, don’t try to pass a bill that only 17 percent of the country approves of,” Jordan declared. “That’s a problem.”
“Mr. Priebus was talking about don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Well, this wasn’t even good.”

“When no one likes the legislation, you have to do it different,” Jordan said. “It wasn’t going to bring down premiums — it had a host of problems. And frankly, the key promise we made to the American people in the 2010, 2014, and 2016 election[s] was we would repeal Obamacare, this legislation didn’t do that. And that was the fundamental flaw in this entire process. So let’s get back to work and let’s do what we said we would do.”

Jordan went on to say that the House Freedom Caucus was completely united on the 2015 clean Obamacare repeal bill that was passed in both the House and Senate and was sent to Obama’s desk.

But instead of starting with the “perfect,” Paul Ryan and his team of RINOs stupidly crafted a turd sandwich behind closed doors first and somehow thought it would pass muster with principled conservatives who were excluded from the writing of the legislation.

President Trump, as the author of “Art of the Deal” should know, this is exactly the opposite way a negotiation should have been constructed.

It's quite annoying to hear all these RINOs race to the cameras and mangle metaphors about "allowing the perfect to be the enemy of the good."

Then these addled ninnies confuse themselves by having to recite this talking point over and over and then they end up blathering about letting the good become the enema of the perfect. Or some such crap. They're confused people, not very bright. And they're very very angry to be exposed for what they really are.

Want a clean repeal bill and health bill and tax bill and everything-else bill?

Easy. Mitch McConnell: suspend the filibuster rule and ram through all of the legislation in a Republican majority Senate. There. Done. No negotiation with Democrats at all. No ability to stop anything.

If the Republicans are right, their programs, fully enacted, will unleash great prosperity, and they'll never lose another election because they'll control the whole budget, everything.

Truth is, the bulk of Republicans are NOT on the side of the people. They are crony capitalists who want tax breaks for the rich and stockjobbing contracts that privatize the government on a for-profit basis for the well- connected.

There are more Republican legislators like that than there are Republican populists are true-blue conservatives. Unfortunately, sand is running through the hour glass. The GOP was elected on Trump's coattails. HE was elected to do things the bulk of the traditional GOP does not want. But they have to swallow their desires and follow him. Or they can resist, divide, fail, and be replaced by Democrats.

You can be sure that if the DEMOCRATS take back power, THEY will maintain party discipline, kill the filibuster and ram through their whole agenda.

Notice Jordan saying here that the House Freedom Caucus was united on starting with the 2015 bill passed in both chambers and then following up with another 'replace' bill.

But Ryan refused to offer the House the same bill written by Tom Price. Because it was the RINOs who wouldn't vote for it again. The Freedom Caucus was ready before and is still ready to vote for the 2015 Price bill.

Well, the Dems want single payer - that's better. Of course they want to use it to fund unlimited abortion too.

And the Dems want generous family leave. That's much better.

And the Dems don't keep trying to privatize Social Security, so they're better on that too.

On foreign policy they're equally incompetent as Republicans, and they both treat Israel better than they are willing to treat states of their own country, which is discouraging.

The Republicans could be better, but they just love money and power so very much they can't seem to accept that redistribution of SOME excess wealth is necessary to keep suffering down.

Those Republican house members who wouldn't vote for a clean repeal are in the majority, so they're not RINO's. They're the REAL majority Republican, ObamaCare lovers.

The minority Republicans who rejected Obamacare Lite are the RINO's. God bless the House Freedom Caucus and the other RINO's who killed Ryan/Trump commie care.

Down with the REAL Republicans, like Ryan, Trump, and Gatlin! The good news is that they lost, and that's an awesome trend which needs to continue.

Fine. Bring it back for a vote and we'll find out who the chickenshit hypocrites in the House GOP really are. I'd bet the Freedom Caucus people would have no problem voting for it again. It's the RINOs that wouldn't vote for it. I think it was likely the RINOs that were going to spike it if it came to a vote.

On the Wall Street Jornal Report, an hour show on FNC on Saturday, one of their younger (fortyish) reporters had followed this and had a lot of contacts with House aides (he claimed). He said the RINOs were unhappy with it all along with a number of them looking for a reason to desert. As the Freedom Caucus kept insisting on the various repeal provisions (as they had all along), the RINOs got madder. The reporter said that by the time Ryan called Trump to let him cancel the bill, they didn't even have 100 votes left in favor of it. It wasn't just a loss by a few votes in the House, something they would have tried for like they did with the Pill Bill in 2004. It was an utter humiliation because they wanted to pass their own 0bamaCare but one that screwed a lot of working-class people in Red states to punish them for being dumb enough to trust Republicans would do what they campaigned for.

Republicans are real good at obstructing. The best, actually. And that comes from years and years of practice while in the minority.

Now that we control everything -- which they demanded -- they can't stop. If they're not obstructing Democrats, why, they'll switch to obstructing Republicans. They don't know how to govern, and they're demonstrating why they shouldn't be given the power to govern.

Nobody in the GOP leadership sat down with the Freedom Caucus before Trump introduced the bill and had a come-to-Jesus meeting with them? Stupid, stupid, stupid.

The 2015 Price bill is no different than what Trump offered. If it was, I'd agree with you. But it's not.

Republicans voted for the Price bill and 53 other similar bills because they knew Obama would veto them. Even if the 2015 Price bill was flawed, who cares? It's not going to pass anyways.

But when the 2015 Price bill was turned into a real bill by Trump, the Freedom Caucus got cold feet.

Why don't we just glance at the text? The differences are glaring. Or are you too lazy or incompetent to find the bill for yourself?

H.R.2653 — 114th Congress (2015-2016), the American Health Care Reform Act of 2015

The list of changes is quite extensive. High-risk pools at the state level, extensive support for medical savings accounts, VA reform, tort reform, association plans (for self-insured and small businesses), and more.

That. Pass that. Like they did twice only 14 months ago.

Just how many 0care repeal bills did Price write in 2015 anyway?

I see this one has a title of "Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015". Yet other reporting did indicate that its title was AHCRA.

At any rate, the Price bill does not go far enough. It will result in another 0bamaCare death spiral. But the GOP will own it 100% with the voters and the Dems will be happy to point out that the entire exercise was just so the GOP could deliver big tax cuts to the richest Americans (with a few tax cut scraps for middle-class Americans to go along with it). And the GOP has publicly admitted that this was just something to cut costs so they could make their tax cuts bigger while complying with budget law and reconciliation.

Trump should get on his knees and thank God for the Freedom Caucus spiking this atrocity of a bill. It fulfills every negative stereotype in the public's mind about the GOP.

For Trump's budget to mean much, he'd have to be willing to veto bills that spend more than he wants for given departments.

I'm not sure he will do that. This is why presidential budgets are routinely declared DOA on the Hill.

That's all it is, a proposal.

But if Trump wants to hold the line on a budget, he has to be ready to veto. Right up to closing down the government if need be.

I assume you do know that it is Congress that sets spending. The prez can only veto specific spending bills and dare them to override him.
