Part of the reason we elected Trump as our President is because we knew that he was the toughest candidate we could have been given. Businessmen all around the world already knew that Trump was one tough cookie, but politicians on Capitol Hill are starting to finally see this as well.
We recently witness a few Republican senators betray Trump and the American people when they deliberately sided with Democrats and squashed Trump’s effort to repeal Obamacare once and for all. It was pretty stupid of them to get on Trump’s bad side if you ask me. President Trump has made it very clear that he doesn’t really give a rat’s ass what the mainstream media thinks and says about him, so why would this case be any different?
Trump has never played by the same rules of politics that the Democrats and the Republicans have played by. He operates in a certain way that actually gets stuff done. This time, Trump has done something to seriously take a stand against these corrupt politicians. He has made it known that if the senators aren’t going to work on fixing our broken health care system for all American citizens, he is going to strip them of their own health care benefits! Way to go, Mr. President!
After the Senate vote, President Trump tweeted, “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”
I couldn’t agree with President Trump’s decision to begin to take away Senate members’ health care if they aren’t willing to make health care affordable for ALL Americans.
The statement by President Trump was dubbed by the Wall Street Journal to be one of his “most explicit threats to cut off payments to insurance companies to force senators and lobbyists back to the bargaining table for a GOP health-care bill.” The Wall Street Journal also explained that this was the first time that Trump had been “willing to cancel some of lawmakers’ health-care benefits.”
“…he also plans to directly target subsidies that are available to health insurance policies for some Congressional staff members. Thousands of members of Congress and staff are enrolled in plans on the Washington, D.C., insurance exchange.”
Congress should be very worried at this point. Their previous actions have proved that they do not stand behind President Trump and his plan to give us a better America. What are they trying to do? Clearly, if they didn’t realize who they were dealing with before, they do now!
