Trump to GOP critics of health care bill: Im gonna come after you

President Trump went to Capitol Hill on Tuesday morning to sell the House GOP leadership’s plan to overhaul the health-care system as the legislation races toward an expected vote on the House floor by the end of this week. Assuring Republicans they would gain seats if they passed the bill, the president told Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, to stand up and take some advice.

“I’m gonna come after you, but I know I won’t have to, because I know you’ll vote ‘yes,’” said the president, according to several Republican lawmakers who attended the meeting. “Honestly, a loss is not acceptable, folks.

1. They will pass it, he wont have to come after them.

He will do the same in the Senate and they will also, after all is said and done, pass it.

And they are in a hurry, Ryan is waiting in the wings with the bills that will take our Medicare and Social Security next, and those will also pass.

This has been planned for decades.

Another in a long list of reasons why government should NOT be run like a business.
