KANSAS CITY CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER CELEBRATES TRUMPCARE DEFEAT!!!



A bold statement from the top ranking politico in Kansas City . . .

Congressman Cleaver Pleased to Hear TrumpCare Bill Pulled

Congressman Cleaver would have voted “No” on TrumpCare

(Washington, D.C.) - Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II was pleased to hear the recent announcement that Speaker Paul Ryan pulled H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act of 2017, or TrumpCare.

“The bill would have provided less health care coverage, fewer protections and higher costs for millions of Americans,” said Congressman Cleaver.

This bill would have provided $900 billion in tax cuts to the rich while leaving millions of working families with higher costs and less coverage. It cut $1 trillion from Medicare and Medicaid combined, and would have taken 3 years off of the life of the Medicare Trust Fund to pay for tax cuts to high earners, insurance companies, and insurance executives.

“TrumpCare rips health care away from 24 million Americans – and in Missouri over 69,400 people will lose coverage. This bill will actually make America ache again. This legislation would have devastating consequences for the health of American families and the health of the American economy. TrumpCare would destroy 1.8 million jobs nationwide in 2022,” said Congressman Cleaver.

The bill would have resulted in millions of children, individuals with disabilities, seniors and low-income adults losing health coverage. It would have driven up costs for older Americans by allowing insurers to charge them five times what they would charge younger enrollees. The bill also failed to protect the 129 million Americans with pre-existing health conditions.

TrumpCare would have been particularly detrimental to rural Americans and rural hospitals. Rural areas have 6.6% higher premiums than the national average because insurance pools tend to be smaller - raising costs. The switch from income-based tax credits to age-based tax credits would hit rural areas harder because geographic and demographic factors aren’t accounted for. Rural families already pay higher premiums and the tax credits offered under Trumpcare would only partially offset these costs – leaving rural Americans with limited options at higher prices.

Looks like he will not be convinced otherwise. I guess he won't be throwed.

Good luck that they already have a majority in the house that will pass it. They're working on the senate but they'll get there soon enough.

Trump doesn't even want to call it Trumpcare. And he puts his name on every thing. That's clue about how bad this is.

You know what trump should do, they should call for an investigation as to why so many contractors who are awarded infrastructure contracts in the city are members of cleavers church, where the grateful parishioners offer up their 20% .. umm... tithe, yes thats what its called.... a tithe as thanks to not Cleaver but God for helping them to garner the contracts cleaver brings back to KC .. wait, is it a tuthe? I dont know, I was thinking it was a form of kick back but surely its a tithe if it is given to cleaver through his church isnt it?

Cleaver has never voted for anything a white person has created in his life. So why would we expect different now.

Of course you will vote no on trump Ryan Care! WTF, quit talking to us like we're baby boomer, just stop ec?

His opinions and speeches are completely irrelevant.
Cleaver's a back-bencher in a political party that is in a minority in both houses of the legislative branch and where the White House is in the hands of the opposition as well.
Can anyone name anything he accomplished when his part controlled pretty much everything in DC?
And the old game of "bringing home the bacon" for votes in KC is pretty much over.
Irrelevant.

Cleaver conveniently fails to mention that Obamacare was failing and most insurance companies were dropping out which means many Obamacare customers would have had no insurance or drastically higher premiums.
He also fails to say that many poor and middle class folks would have had to pay an expensive penalty for not having insurance with Obamacare. Plus, millions of working people had skyrocketing premiums under the failed Obamacare. they also did not get to keep their doctor as falsely promised Cleaver. Perhaps, if Cleaver had bothered to read the Unaffordable Care Act Bill before he voted in favor of it he would have known that it would be a massive failure. Of course, now Cleaver and other Dems are engaged a revisionist history pr campaign where they ignore all of the Obamacare problems.Cleaver couldn't even manage a small car wash so why would he understand the complexities of the failed Unaffordable Health Care Act.

The Lord wasted a good set of ears on that car wash owner.

Let Obamacare explode. The democrats will be calling for amendments and/or a single payer program. Let them be proud of their giveaway program that taxes folks trying to make a living through a penalty. It is going to fail and require a bailout, lol

If only Trump's and Ryan's fathers had considered withdrawal. But as we all could see today, withdrawing too late screws up everything, bigly. Now its retreat and deface. Lunatic Trump is running naked through the halls of the West Wing spray painting "Not My Fault" on any flat surface available.

I'm having that extra glass of wine tonight, toasting Republicans who've for decades insisted government doesn't work, then volunteering to prove it to us. Seven years of Republicans vowing to repeal and replace if they ever get ahold of the reins of gubmint. Yee haw, ride 'em, cowboys! All hat, not even a Shetland pony.

Yes, he has and does on a regular basis. Many of his supporters and handlers are white.

Bingo! My premium under Obamacare was $300 a month, plus the coverage didn't provide hardly any services...It was all out of pocket until the deductible was reached. I hate Obamacare.

You may not agree with his politics, but his math adds up. Don't know why Conservatives want more poor people to be thrown off healthcare.

8:38 & 8:41 ^^ copied/pasted my two posts from above. They made good use of smacking Sick Suck with them, so I approve. But, Suck, the fake chuck/rantoholic cuck/dumbfuck isn't permitted to steal my comments.

This is Cuck...er, Chuck. I just want to let let you guys know that when I post I usually will give praise to my earlier posts. I am trying to give the illusion that people like me. It's a bad habit of mine. You know they are my posts because they will likely be in all caps or have misspellings galore. I often throw in a "TRANNY BITCHES" or "FUCKIN FREE BEES." I like to cuss a lot too. I hate because I hate myself.

Let's just fucking grow up in this country and move towards single payer.

Only then can we address the costs of health care that essentially amount to a hostage racket.

Hi Chuck. Looks like the microwave gave you a another message today. Can you plug into the stove and tell us when will we ever be freed of these damn defacto Obama Brownshirts!

Trump rethought this and won.
Obamacare will die and nothing is going to replace it so anger will leave the Democrats without a hope for a majority in anything except stupidityand Clever is thought of as one one the dumber ones in Congress- across both parties.
Trump doesn't care it didn't pass. Most states won't have any Obamacare insurance to sign up for in 2018 and no one could afford what's left. Obama left a non- working system and Pelosi and Schumer will pay for it and Clever doesn't have a clue when he says he is glad Trump's Replacement won't pass. Clever in inconsequential anyway- not sure of any achievement he has accomplished...
Except run a car wash into the ground... dumb- dumb and dumber.
Say good bye to the Democratic Party and if you go to a garage sale- pick up all the Michael Moore DVDs you can find so you can level off your TV.

If only MO would have accepted federal funding to help the working poor afford the premiums...
But, they chose to forgo it and complain about how expensive it is.

Some states who've accepted the subsidies have premiums as low as 20 bucks. Here we are blaming the Democratic Party for the Repubs not accepting money.
