Allegation after allegation are screamed from the mountaintop by the Liberal Left. And they ALL are refutable. Why is there no GOP leader — the House Speaker or Senate Majority Leader — who has the guts to stand up and say, “That’s a Lie!” and then explain why? Americans — especially conservative Americans — are sick and tired of the spineless Republicans who all ran in 2016 on President Trump’s coattails, his policies, and his promises to voters, stating they would support him. Here we are 5 months into his Administration and he is under a deluge of false news, departmental leaks picked up daily by the NY Times and Washington Post and turned into “the sky is falling!” and NONE of them will face the NY Times or the Post and say, “Those are absolutely false.” Kelly Ann Conway is the only person in D.C. that will routinely take the microphone and loudly proclaim that all of the fake and false news and non-stop allegations from Democrats and other Leftists themselves are untrue. Want some examples?
From CNN: Sen. Bernie Sanders did not hold anything back Thursday when he condemned the House passage of the Republican-backed bill to replace Obamacare. “If the bill passed today in the House became law, thousands of Americans would die, because they would no longer have access to health care,” Sanders told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “AC360.”
Any real Republican with any credibility who has a national microphone would use it to say something like this: “Senator Sanders is not telling Americans the truth. The Senator has not seen the nuts and bolts of the House bill because the CBO is now analyzing its contents and how it will affect Americans. The Senator would be much better served (as would the voters in Vermont) if he would stop telling lies simply to scare Americans and drive the wedge deeper into the relationship with his counterparts in the House and Senate. He like all Congress and Senate members should wait for a non-partisan analysis, then join with Republicans to ask questions and get real answer instead of screaming political nonsense through the media.”
Did you hear ANY Republican confront Senator Sanders? No. Nor did you hear any call him out about his claims when the CBO published their report that said NOTHING about any Americans dying because of the House Bill.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer just 17 hours ago said this about the pending Senate version of the healthcare bill: “Republicans are drafting this bill in secret because they’re ashamed of it, plain and simple,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “These are merely the first steps we’re prepared to take in order to shine a light on this shameful Trumpcare bill and reveal to the public the GOP’s true intentions: to give the uber-wealthy a tax break while making middle class Americans pay more for less healthcare coverage. If Republicans won’t relent and debate their healthcare bill in the open for the American people to see, then they shouldn’t expect business as usual in the Senate.”
Folks, Schumer has NOT seen the bill that’s being proposed. The bill that is to be proposed has not been drafted yet! But listening to Schumer it seems he has the bill in his hand, has had outside authorities analyze it for him, and is giving Americans a professional analysis of what it contains. He calls it a “shameful Trumpcare bill” and claims the bill will give uber-wealthy a tax break and middle class Americans will pay more for less. And he threatens that if the GOP won’t take the bill to the floor he’ll shut the Senate down. Remember: this is the guy along with his counterpart in the House that passed a bill that Obama signed into law that was/is the biggest financial boondoggle in American history — Obamacare — AND NOT A SINGLE SENATOR OR HOUSE MEMBER HAD THE BILL TO READ BEFORE EITHER HOUSE VOTED ON IT! Has any Republican or any member of the news media called Mr. Schumer out for making these outlandishly untrue statements or confronted him for making claims about a proposed bill that’s not even proposed yet nor does he know its contents? NO!!!!!
“Americans will lose their health coverage because of his proposal. And it is a job loser. Estimated to be 1.8 million jobs lost. Donald Trump is a job loser.”
— House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, remarks to reporters. June 9, 2017
I do not remember a single Republican member of the House or Senate confronting Ms. Pelosi on the above claim that if signed into law as passed by the House the AHA would take healthcare away from any Americans or that 1.8 million would lose their jobs. isn’t this a pretty outlandish claim that someone should take on? One of the many things all that take Sociology in college learn is that if something is said publicly and is NOT confronted, it is assumed to be true. Paul Ryan, where are you?!? Mr. Ryan is the Speaker of the House. He has a national microphone anytime he asks for it. Does he not think it is important for Americans — who most of are impacted by the existing and any subsequent healthcare bill — to know the truth and know when lies are told? Shouldn’t he confront Pelosi and demand the truth?
Someone DID take on the Minority House Leader, and it was not a Republican legislator or a CNN, MSNBC, or FOX reporter. The Washington Post gave her two Pinocchios. There is a report out there claiming that number of lost jobs from a historically “mistaken” statistical projection firm, but there are numerous other reports stating even with some job losses there would be jobs added that would probably result in a zero sum gain. Remember: In 2010, Pelosi also famously once predicted that Obamacare would “create 4 million jobs, 400,000 jobs almost immediately.” That wasn’t true either.
There is example after example of this happening every day. Members of the House of Representatives and the Senate are full time employees of the American people. They took an oath that says: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Hmmm…….”I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.” How can they do that without making certain that when false claims are made by any members of Congress about either existing or proposed legislation to all Americans via national media, those false claims are refuted using the same bully pulpit those telling lies use? It cannot be done. And their not doing so is a direct violation of the oath of office they swore to.
(By the way: has anyone checked up on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell? He may have been kidnapped or may be so ill he’s not working. I haven’t seen or heard from him lately, have you? Certainly not about any of this nonsense spewed by Senator Bernie Sanders or Chuck Schumer)
PLEASE: CALL THEM OUT! Maybe just forward this post to your Congressmen and Senators. That might be a good start along with a phone message and email.
