Tax Reform or Healthcare??

Seriously???

Inside a contentious Senate meeting about the tax bill ó or is it health care?

A fascinating debate just took place in the Senate finance committee markup, as Democrats attempted to argue that repealing the individual mandate essentially turns the tax reform bill into a health care bill.

"This is turning the tax bill into a health care bill with our colleagues getting an hourís worth of notice," said ranking member Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon.

Democrats argued that they needed more time to add health care related amendments.

Republicans, however, argued that health care related amendments were unnecessary because the Supreme Court ruled the individual mandate was a tax, therefore the addition of the repeal is relevant to tax reform.

"How is this outside the scope? Itís a tax," said Republican Sen. John Thune of South Dakota.

As the back and forth between the two sides continued, Senate finance chairman Orrin Hatch interrupted.
"Letís talk like gentleman here," Hatch said, as female voices on the committee yelled out, "And ladies!"

"And ladies," Hatch added, saying they all needed to, "treat each other with respect."

The majority Republican committee ultimately voted down Democrats' request for more time to add amendments given the expected change to the bill.

Democrats lamented that the process no longer resembled regular order.

So the GOP does NOT want the Tax Reform to go forward?? Is this a foul ball? A swipe at Trump? OR what?? Because one sure way to defeat the tax reform bill is to add heathcare reform, which is fine with me, but..........

Insanity strikes again.

I just got a email from one of the news sources I have signed up with saying the Senates verion of the budget gets rid of the individual mandate. At that point it stops being an insurance scheme and thus is dead.

The cowards are doing it this way plus this way it can't be filibustered. Stress the coward part.
Thanks from Camelot and Clara007

Not a single Democrat should vote for it. They have not been allowed to offer any input at all as this has been thrown together by Republicans in back rooms. There have been zero public hearings. These creeps aren’t worthy of any Democratic cooperation.

One of the cowards says the individual mandate is a tax---that's how they justify adding the amendment to the bill.

What do they call forcing the insured to pick up the cost of the uninsured showing up in emergency rooms all over America ? A gift ?

If they educated themselves they'd be conservatives.
