BREAKING: Official Vote Just Made In Obamacare Repeal – You Won’t Believe What Decision Was

Published

on

As arguably one of the most anticipated and crucial decisions to cross President Donald Trump’s desk, the final decision has just been made on whether to repeal Obamacare or not, as his predecessor’s plan teeters on the edge of collapse. American’s healthcare and the system as a whole depends on the outcome of today’s vote since Barack Obama’s overhaul was costly and ineffective and has caused hardship for many citizens.

After round one of the repeal disappointed on delivery by not seeing much of a difference from the defunct Obamacare, Trump’s administration was given more time to make necessary changes in hopes of getting it to pass. In the process, we’re seeing Trump’s top-notch negotiating skills and finesse in “the art of the deal,” as Newt Gingrich described, in what’s perhaps his most important negotiation of his presidency yet.

Top Republicans went into the vote today confident of a win, after emerging from a meeting with Speaker Paul Ryan extremely optimistic out what would be the outcome.

“Because we have enough votes. It’ll pass. It’s a good bill,” Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-California, told a barrage of reporters outside Ryan’s office last night, CNN reported.
His overconfidence wasn’t arrogance as the House decided today to repeal Obamacare and offer more affordable options for citizens and providers. “The bill now heads to the Senate where it faces daunting challenges because of the same ideological splits between conservative and moderate Republicans that nearly killed it in the House,” CNN reported today. Unlike liberals’ Obamacare, “the House unanimously passed a separate bill that will ensure members of Congress and their staffs are subject to the rules of their new health care measure,” the report added.
The third time seems to have been the charm in this case as the latest version of the American Healthcare Act didn’t disappoint in the way the two prior attempts to repeal did, despite Democrats insisting that it’s “far too extreme.”
In an ironic comment made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who forced the passing of Obamacare before anyone could read what was in it, she insisted that Republicans were forcing this repeal fo a sinister reason.
“Forcing a vote without a CBO score shows that Republicans are terrified of the public learning the full consequences of their plan to push Americans with pre-existing conditions into the cold,” Pelosi said, according to CNN. “But tomorrow, House Republicans are going to tattoo this moral monstrosity to their foreheads, and the American people will hold them accountable.”
Fox News reports the major changes made to this bill after the prior one was pulled from the floor:

“Here’s what’s the bill does:

-Ends tax penalties, under the original Affordable Care Act, for individuals who don’t buy insurance coverage and larger employers who don’t offer coverage. Instead, insurers would apply a 30 percent surcharge to customers who’ve let coverage lapse for more than 63 days in the past year.

-Ends tax increases on higher-earning people and a range of industry groups including insurers, drug makers and medical device manufacturers.

-Cuts the Medicaid program for low-income people and lets states impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients. Forbids states that haven’t already expanded Medicaid to do so. Changes Medicaid from an open-ended program that covers beneficiaries’ costs to one that gives states fixed amounts of money annually.

-Overhauls insurance subsidy system from one based largely on incomes and premium costs to a system of tax credits. The credits would rise with customers’ ages and, like the subsidies, could be used toward premium costs.

-Lets states get federal waivers allowing insurers to charge older customers higher premiums than younger ones by as much as they’d like. Obama’s law limits the difference to a 3-1 ratio. States also can get waivers exempting insurers from providing consumers with required coverage of specified health services, and from Obama’s prohibition against insurers charging higher premiums to people with pre-existing health problems, but only if the person has had a gap in insurance coverage.

-States could only get the latter waivers if they have mechanisms like high-risk pools that are supposed to help cover people with serious, expensive-to-treat diseases. A newly added provision would give another $8 billion over five years to help states finance their high-risk pools. Despite criticism that the waivers strip protections, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office maintains that since states that take the waivers would have to set up the high-risk pools, “insurance companies cannot deny you coverage based on pre-existing conditions.”

-Blocks federal payments to Planned Parenthood for a year.

-Retains requirement that family policies cover grown children to age 26.”

Today’s outcome give President Trump the major legislative victory he’s been after since the the day he was sworn into office.

Liberal Feminist Runs Off To Turkey To Marry Muslim Lover — Begs To Come Back After BRUTAL ‘Wedding Gift’

Published

on

Lacy MacAuley is a violent left-wing nut who helps organize Antifa Communist riots across America, and was featured in Project Veritas’ undercover video where she was one of the morons behind the violent disrupt protests during Trump’s inauguration. Just like every other brain dead moron on the left, MacAuley fell in love with Muslims and Islam and became obsessed with helping Muslim terrorists disguised as refugees, determined to prove to the world that Islam is a “religion of peace.”

But shortly after falling in love with a Muslim and moving with him to Turkey, her little world of unicorns and rainbows would soon be destroyed. Through her blog, she would go on to tell the world about the horrifying things her Muslim boyfriend put her through, describing the fear and hell she lived in as he began practicing Sharia Law on her, controlling her every move as he beat and raped her for going against his wishes.

Lacy MacAuley getting arrested during one of her violent little demonstrations

Here’s a few snippets from Lacy the Muslim lover’s blog. It’s quite entertaining to watch as her eyes are opened to the true meaning of Islam.

I am a radical activist based in Washington DC. I fell in love with an energetic, charismatic activist I met in November when I was present to write about resistance to the G20 Summit, a global event in Antalya, Turkey. After I came home to the US, we talked every day. He was lovely and charming, I thought at the time. He offered a ready smile, engaging kindness, and intelligent conversation. He said all the right things to convince me that he cared about women’s rights and activism. In February, I decided to return to Turkey with the promise of love driving me forward. I couldn’t have known things would turn sour.

The first two weeks were quite the love story. I observed that he was drinking heavily, and called him an “alky,” but it was just a joke at first. We went to the beach and historic sites, and he introduced me to his friends. All seemed to be going well, and I felt that the romance was solidly moving forward.

Then came our first fight. I had wanted to interview a local woman for an article on Syrian refugees. He did not approve. He knew the woman and did not like her, so he strictly forbade me from speaking with her. After I questioned his rationale, he yelled and stormed out of the room to go smoke a cigarette. I just stood in the middle of the room not knowing what to do. Of course, as a Western woman, no one had ever forbidden me from speaking with anyone else. It was a strange feeling: Don’t I have a mouth to speak? Why can I not use it as I wish?

Then MacAuley discusses her feminist background that would’ve prevented her from being with a Muslim had she known what they truly believe. But of course this lesson came too late, as she would soon learn:

This is elementary feminism. No man has the power to silence a woman, just because he is a man. How far backwards things would slide in the coming weeks.
What I found over the next few weeks was absolute frustration of my efforts to do my advocacy work. I had put myself in a place of dependence upon a person who, as it turned out, would have liked to keep me by his side and control my every move. He hindered, rather than helped, the work I tried to do there.

Hilariously, MacAuley would soon realize that people who criticize Islam are not bigots at all…as her life was transformed into a living hell with her Muslim boyfriend.
Things deteriorated rapidly. His insecurity and childishness got worse. In the following weeks, I was violently pushed, blocked from leaving freely, and repeatedly told not to speak. If I spoke anyway, anger erupted. I endured threats that I would be burnt with cigarettes, flinching as he “faked” with his lit cigarette. I had to duck to avoid having sharp objects thrown at my face. I had water angrily poured over my head.

Unwanted sex? Rape? All the time. He did not stop to determine whether I consented to sex. Several times, he turned off my wifi and lied about it, a modern-day form of gaslighting. He verbally criticized me for using social media, my main link to the rest of my life back in the US, and tried to discourage me from using it. He forced me to unfriend one Turkish man on Facebook, and wanted me to unfriend many more.

MacAuley then went into detail how she was victimized by other Muslims, and jailed by Turkish police because she was a journalist from America.

Two days later, however, I was jailed by Turkish police for several hours when I tried to simply enter a large public speech in Antalya by the president of Turkey. (They make a habit of jailing reporters and activists, and I didn’t look like I fit their norms. I wrote about this experience with the Turkish police here.) I had an “out of the frying pan and into the fire” sensation.

What’s even more ironic is even after MacAuley’s up close and personal experience with true Islam, she is still in denial. No matter how many times she was beaten and raped by her Muslim boyfriend, she still manages to believe that he believes in women’s rights, going on to state on her blog that he still “saw the silver lining in her activism.”

This story just goes to prove that liberalism truly is a mental disorder. This idiotic woman will still continue to push for left-wing totalitarianism. Too bad that Turkish prison couldn’t have kept her locked up a little longer. Sounds like MacAuley still has a long way to go before she finally wakes from her fantasy world of unicorns and rainbows!

After Getting BAD News Overnight, NFL Commish Just Emerged From 3Hr Meeting With SHOCK Announcement

Published

on

Major business players in the NFL held an emergency meeting yesterday, presumably to pow wow over how they are going to fix their desperate situation and save their season. It’s reached a point of no return and now the league commissioner, Roger Goodell, who allowed these players to protest for weeks on end and demanded everyone be patient has to face the music of his bad decision. Now, he’s emerged with a sudden shocking announcement about the NFL that’s been destroyed under his “leadership.”

There’s no denying that boycotts are alive and well when with each new game there’s more empty seats than the week before. Ratings are the lowest they’ve been in decades, big sponsors are dropping players as the hits keep on coming. While the outrage is obvious, the only ones who refuse to see it are those directly affected by it – football players who insist on kneeling and league officials who continue to allow it.

When word got out that NFL officials were going to be holding an emergency meeting over the protests that have plagued their sport, the country thought they would emerge with a “white flag” on the issue and announce a hail mary in hopes of saving themselves from further failure. Instead, they perpetuated the disappointment and sealed their unfortunate fate for the rest of the season and perhaps even the future of the sport.

Despite the NFL and NFLPA calling it a “productive meeting,” it was only productive in making matters worse for their industry when it didn’t seem like that could be possible. After coming out of the three-hour pow wow, the statement on what they discussed and conclusions they had come to was to continue to do . nothing about kneeling while “promoting a positive social change and address inequality in our communities,” the statement said. That was the final nail in the NFL coffin since now the fallout from that had come to fruition and a lot of people could soon be out of work.

A statement released jointly by the NFL and NFLPA after the meeting where 11 owners and 13 players were in attendance, said:

“Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities. NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change. We agreed that these are common issues and pledged to meet again to continue this work together.”

“As we said last week, everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military. In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change.”

The meeting was supposed to be about the anthem, as the first and most important order of business, as well as other league matters. Just like NFL officials have done all season so far, they ignored that protesting part and went on to innocuous stuff that won’t matter in the long run based on the damning news the NFL just got today.

Just when the NFL ratings seemed to have reached an all-time low, they dropped to a level that they won’t be able to recover from now and it has everything to do with players and officials ignoring their fed-up fans. The overnight ratings plummet was the final straw and is going to cost more that just commercial revenue and stock values.

The Daily Mail reports:

The Tennessee Titans won their Week 6 game against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, but the real losers may be ESPN and the NFL, which suffered through the lowest-rated ‘Monday Night Football’ game of the season. 

MNF, which is broadcast by ESPN, had been losing viewers throughout the season, but Monday’s 6.1 rating in metered markets was its lowest of the 2017 season, according toDeadline.com. (In other words: 6.1 percent of households in metered markets watched the game on Monday).

According to Deadline.com, Monday’s game registered a 3.7 rating among adults 18-49 and drew in a total viewership of over 10.3 million. Monday’s Titans-Colts game came in 3 percent below ESPN’s Week 6 broadcast from a year ago, which drew only 8.4 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic.

The ultimate culprit might be the NFL’s ongoing protests in which many players have refused to stand during the national anthem as a way of raising awareness about police brutality and injustice against minorities in America.

The demonstrations began in the 2016 season when then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick first sat and then knelt for the anthem during the preseason. And even though Kaepernick remains a free agent this year, the protests have become much more frequent.

The bitter end result of their poor decision and rock-bottom ratings is that the NFL has now lost their long-held title of “America’s Favorite Sport.” Whether the industry cares about that fact or not, even if they pretend they don’t, it’s going to be a long road to recover from, if they can. They will start to care when it affects their paychecks and it’s only a matter of time before it does. It’s too late now to make a change, the fans have found better things to do with their time and money. Their actions spoke volumes when they had the chance to stop the protests and do the right thing, and didn’t. The true tragedy is that the NFL has allowed entitled, misguided players destroy a favorite past time that was brought people together.

Sasha’s Secret Out About Why She Changed Her Name – Now There’s No Hiding From Family’s Secret

Published

on

The world has known Barack and Michelle Obama’s youngest daughter by the name Sasha Obama since the moment she moved into the White House. She’s gone by that moniker for longer than that and of the two Obama daughters, has spent the least amount of time in the spotlight.

This is in part due to Michelle making it this way to protect her, but as she’s gotten older, she’s appearing on the scene more frequently looking a lot older than 16, which is a milestone she just recently hit.

Her parents have been traveling ever since leaving the young girl at home except for one recent family vacation. Although Sasha has just turned 16-years-old, she’s sure grown up a lot, as photos from her big “Sweet 16” birthday bash show what her mother must have taught her along with a secret she’s been keeping.

Other than some grainy snapshots of the former first daughters captured by the paparazzi on the family’s recent trip to Indonesia, the country has all but forgotten about the youngest Obama daughter who has been completely out of sight for the past six months.

The last time Sasha was really in the news was when she was caught living like a rockstar on a beach vacation with friends, despite being just 15-years-old at the time. The entitled teen seemed to have put a precedence on the trip over things of importance to her family since it was more important to her to party on the beach than attend her father’s farewell speech upon retiring as President of the United States.

Michelle has prided herself on raising two distinguished daughters which she attributes to keeping them out of the spotlight. Perhaps she redirected the attention so that others didn’t see what she taught them.

An onslaught of photographs recently surfaced from Sasha’s beach vacation several months ago proved her girls aren’t as demure and innocent as she claims, which was only made more obvious by what was seen at Sahsa’s birthday party.

Both Michelle and Barack proudly advertise their parenting style as being the reason their girls having a very “normal” upbringing, which is reflected in them becoming “sweet, kind, funny, smart, respectful people” their father said in an interview on ABC’s This Week. However, no sooner did he take credit for having such perfect children, his youngest daughter proved him wrong.

Sasha turned 16 in May but didn’t celebrate the monumental birthday until June 10. However, it wasn’t until now that photos from that party emerged. America has now seen a lot of the former first daughter in how she lets it all hang out when she goes out to live it up. Similar to what we all saw when she was on the beach in a teeny bikini, she donned a low-cut satin red dress for her birthday, looking a lot more like an adult than a young teen.

America has now seen a lot of the former first daughter in how she lets it all hang out when she goes out to live it up. Similar to what we all saw when she was on the beach in a teeny bikini, she donned a low-cut satin red dress for her birthday, looking a lot more like an adult than a young teen.

In addition to her exposing party attire, Sasha revealed a secret at her birthday that she’s been keeping throughout her father’s presidency and beyond.

The Daily Mail explains:

“The former first daughter, who was just seven years old when her father entered office, stunned in a red slip dress paired with a thin gold necklace at her party in May. Social media users complimented her model looks and expressed their shock over the revelation that Sasha is actually a nickname for her full name, Natasha.”

“Sasha, who wrapped up the school year at Sidwell Friends in Bethesda, Maryland, last week, celebrated her 16th birthday on June 10.”

“Birthday wishes rang in from around the country, and fans expressed their admiration for the teen on social media after photographs of her party emerged online.”

She changed her name years ago seemingly preferring the shorter version which is sweet and seems to suit her well. It’s just interesting that it didn’t come out until she was 16-years-old and out of the white house.

Michelle lived like a celebrity while in the White House and does now as a civilian, often seen on yachts with the rich and famous. This lifestyle seems to be more important to both her and Barack than being parents to their teen, who seems to be following in their footsteps now.

Most kids who are “respectable” would attend important events for their parent, especially if your dad happens to be the President of the United States, but Sasha couldn’t have cared less about that since it would have gotten in the way of her vacation at the time. Her mother doesn’t let anything hold her back from a trip, not even her daughter who she entrusts to others to raise, so Sasha is just doing what she’s been taught.
