Every RINO Needs To Go

Sharing is Caring!

By Michael Snyder
It looks like the effort to repeal Obamacare is completely dead, and that says a lot about the current state of the Republican Party.  For decades, RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) have been using labels such as “Republican”, “conservative”, “pro-gun” and “pro-life” to get elected, but then once they get into office they govern like Democrats.  There was so much hope when Donald Trump won the election last November, but thanks to the RINOs in Congress not much has actually been accomplished so far.  In fact, this is being called “the most unproductive Congress in 164 years”.  The following is an excerpt from an article published by The Week

Just six months ago, it looked like the Republican Party was about to go on a legislative blitzkrieg, shredding law after law passed by the Obama administration. ObamaCare would be vaporized and replaced with a nickel rattling inside an empty Mountain Dew can. Dodd-Frank was sure to be tossed aside for a transparent giveaway to Wall Street. And Republicans would pass their regressive tax reform, their perplexing border-adjustment tax, and so much more. The GOP hadn’t held total power in American politics since 2006, and the party had become much more conservative in the interim.

Most of us were anticipating that so much would get done over the past 6 months, but instead we have seen nothing but gridlock.
The most recent example of this has been the Obamacare debacle.  After failing to push through “Obamacare 2.0”, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decided that he would switch gears and try to get a clean Obamacare repeal bill through the Senate, but unfortunately that effort has already failed

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s sudden move to try to repeal Obamacare without a replacement plan appeared doomed Tuesday as at least three moderate Republicans rejected the idea.

Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said they will not support a motion to proceed to the bill, which would repeal Obamacare in two years. Without their support, McConnell cannot get the 50 votes he needs to pass a repeal bill.

Collins, Capito and Murkowski are perfect examples of what I am talking about when I use the term “RINOs”.  They are essentially Democrats, but they have been able to successfully use the Republican label to get elected.
Unless we are able to start kicking the RINOs out of Congress, most of Trump’s agenda is going to go nowhere.
Obviously Trump is not happy about what has transpired in the Senate, and now his plan is to basically sit back and let Obamacare fail

Now his plan is to “let Obamacare fail; it will be a lot easier,” he said. “And I think we’re probably in that position where we’ll just let Obamacare fail.”
“We’re not going to own it. I’m not going to own it,” the president said. “I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We’ll let Obamacare fail, and then the Democrats are going to come to us.”

But will the Democrats come to the Republicans ready to compromise as Obamacare comes apart at the seams?
I seriously doubt it.
I think that they are convinced that they can successfully point the blame at the Republicans as our health care system continues to deteriorate.
Personally, I believe that the more the federal government gets involved in health care the worse it is going to get.
Unfortunately, once you establish a program that gives out free goodies to people it is hard to take that back.  For RINOs such as Collins, Capito and Murkowski, one of the biggest obstacles to repealing Obamacare is that it would roll back the Medicaid program to pre-Obamacare levels.
Today, more than 74 million Americans are on Medicaid and CHIP, and more than  58 million Americans are on Medicare.  That means that more than 130 million Americans are enrolled in these government programs at this point.
That is nearly half the country.
Of course many Democrats would like to go all the way and put everyone in such programs, but then we would have a completely socialized health care system.
The big problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.  Everybody likes free stuff, but somebody has to pay for all of that free stuff somewhere along the line.
And if people are forced to expend time and effort in order to get their free stuff, interest in the free stuff drops substantially.  In Alabama, food stamp enrollment plunged dramatically once work requirements were re-instituted…

Alabama began 2017 by requiring able-bodied adults without children in 13 counties to either find a job or participate in work training as a condition for continuing to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.
According to AL.com, the number of those recipients declined from 5,538 to 831 between Jan. 1 and the beginning of May – an 85 percent drop.
Similar changes were implemented in select counties in Georgia and by the end of the first three months, the number of adults receiving benefits in three participating counties dropped 58 percent, according to the Georgia Public Policy Foundation.

In my brand new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I open up about why I want to run for Congress.  For way too long we have had a federal government that has just gotten bigger and bigger and bigger.  We need to swing the pendulum way back in the other direction, and we need to educate people on the benefits of having a very limited central government.
If you take the shackles off, the free market system works incredibly well.  And once upon a time, the United States actually had a free market health care system and it was the best on the entire planet.
We can get there again, but first we need to get rid of the RINOs in Congress and replace them with people that deeply believe in true conservative values.

  1. RINOs hell! They all need to go. Every one with a few remarkable exceptions are in the tank for big corporations regardless of party affiliation. They are all tied to banks, big pharma, big ag, or the defense industry. All Congress critters should be forced to disclose their net worth yearly and describe in detail increases in their holdings. You can’t be in Congress pulling down a $175,000 salary and become a multi-millionaire in 20 years. They are all crooked and legislate for the corporations mentioned above. Let’s get rid of them all!
    Ban the FED! Real money! Paper ballots! Term limits! and bring the troops homes, The only terrorist organization is the US government.

  2. Republicans good Democrats bad.
    RINO’s good, Republicans bad.
    Partisan politics are about as real as TV wrestling.
    If you are involved with that scene you are part of the modern day Bread and Circuses.
    This chicanery is trotted out by the people behind the scenes who run the country president after president, Congress after Congress. Its purpose is to make the little people feel like they have a say in running the country.

      • No need to kill myself. I just don’t get involved with politics or politicians. I take care of my self and my loved ones. There is nothing else anybody can do. Anybody who thinks getting involved in partisan politics will change anything is just wasting his life.

  3. GOP or DNC – the same way to turn your life into hell. So ‘pledge allegiances’ and shut up or start a real revolution! Revolution means like in France were the beheaded the royalty – replace royalty with CEO or Wall Street scum.

  4. Ryan & McConnell never intended to get rid of Obamacare they have had 7 years to write a replacement bill …. just like the (ANTI)Patriot Act was mysteriously already written and ready-to-go on 9/11 Remember Treasonous Ryan & Boehner took the debt ceiling off to give Obama a BLANK CHECK on your taxes.
    (1) TAKE AWAY Congress’s private care, put them on the same plan as the PEOPLE get.
    (2) Return all healthcare to pre-1973 nonprofit status.
    (3) Make all providers post their prices. All prices must be the same for insured & not.
    (4) Make the drug companies give Medicare, Medicaid, Americans the same prices they charge overseas.
    (5) Make healthcare fraud a Capital crime. Complete forfieture of ALL assets.
    http://phibetaiota.net/2017/03/karl-dennin…the-federal-budget/ Interesting interview. Denninger does not see any point to holding either gold or silver. However, he does like chicken coops. On healthcare, he says if we do not have some executives connected with healthcare arrested and lead away in handcuffs in the next few years, the costs in this one areas of the economy will bring down the entire house of cards. We use to have 3% of the economy tied to health and now it is 19% and this inflation in healthcare is the primary cause of the low GDP growth over the last 10 years.
    Did you know that before 1973 it was illegal in the US to profit off of health care. The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 passed by Nixon changed everything.
    Then TAKE AWAY Congress’ pension plan & put them on Social Security, which they will then IMMEDIATELY fix.

  5. Health care here in the US was a whole lot better before the Feds took it over. Obamacare violates the Constitution by forcing people to buy a product and/or service (and, of course, it’s a total sham). In addition, the Federal takeover of health care violates the 10th Amendment, wherein nothing specifically allocated to the Feds belongs to the individual states and to the people.
    Also, health care was much better and less costly when patients and physicians helped each other with decisions on medical procedures, and the individual states regulated how much imput could be made by insurance companies .. In other words, the insurance companies weren’t allowed to decide whether or not a patient could undergo a medical procedure.
    It wasn’t until under the Clinton Administration that insurance companies were given a larger say in medical decisions, when HMO’s were established; thus, this interference in doctor-patient relationships began, and health care began to slide. And, it wasn’t until the unconstitutional Federal takeover of health care through the fraudulent Obamacare that it became what it is now, a 3rd World-type of care.
    Both Houses of Congress need a thorough cleanup .. All those who’ve been defrauding their constituencies need to be kicked out and term limits, such as with the Presidency, sorely need to be established. These term limits will ensure the elimination of corruption, as Senators and Representatives will be held accountable to their constituents and not to special interests.

  6. The quote from Thomas Jefferson is taken lightly today as people assure violence is not the answer. However, Thomas Jefferson was correct when he said; “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
    He knew much more than we about such things. The thing is, if the tree of liberty is not refreshed soon, there will be blood anyway, and not of the tyrants.
    The only other way is to quit paying them. And we all know where they get their money. But lest I say- Americans today haven’t the balls, so they will sit around waiting for someone else to do it- and it will never happen.
