Can't we PLEASE have him back???

Barack Obama doesn't often weigh in on issues since leaving office in January — mostly he just looks like he's having a good time — but this was too important to remain silent.

The 44th POTUS took to his Facebook page on Thursday to personally tell the citizens of the United States what he thought of the GOP's health care bill just introduced in the Senate.

Simply put — this thing not even Donald Trump wants his name on? It's not even a health care bill!

House Democrats Chant Hey, Hey, Goodbye As Republicans Barely Pass The Obamacare Replacement Bill — Find Out Why!

Filed under: PolitikHealthShade

no title

House Republicans won today's battle after narrowly passing the American Health Care Act — but come next year, they'll be singing a different tune!

While Democrats certainly weren't celebrating the Obamacare replacement bill being one step closer to a reality on Thursday, the vote put opposers in a singing mood.

As the GOP effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act passed by a 217-213 vote (with 0 votes from the minority party) Dems turned the House of Representatives into a sports arena by chanting the ultimate "fuck you" anthem, Steam's Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.

The late ‘60s rock song echoed Democrats' proclamation that Republicans who voted for the AHCA — which will lead to 24 million Americans losing their insurance by 2026 — risk being voted out of office next year.

Though Republicans didn't seem too bothered by the taunt, as Aides were spotted bringing alcohol into the Capitol to celebrate their victory.

Let's hope come next year, the Democrats will be the ones celebrating after the House is purged of politicians who think sexual assault should be considered a pre-existing condition.

'Many People Will Die' — See All The Strong Reactions To The GOP Finally Passing Their Devastating Obamacare Replacement Bill

no title

Republicans were finally able to pass their replacement for the Affordable Care Act — apparently without even reading it!

The GOP-run House held their vote after several amendments were added to it but before the bill could be read or its Congressional Budget Office score could be determined — though the latest CBO score showed 24 million fewer insured by 2026, and word is all the changes just made it worse.

And it's already basically just a huge tax cut for the wealthiest 2% of Americans.

Republicans reportedly celebrated finally getting rid of Obamacare with a keg party. Meanwhile Democrats weren't laughing. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida said:

"Make no mistake, many people will die as a result of this bill."

After the horrifying news, some are angry, many are despondent — others look to the fight ahead in the Senate (who reportedly WILL at least examine the GD bill)!

Donald Trump Blames The Democrats For Healthcare Bill Failure, Says He's Just Going To Watch Obamacare 'Explode' Now…

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpHealthControversy

Donald Trump

Donald Trump wants you to know that the failed Affordable Care Act repeal is definitely, 100% NOT his fault.

While making his address shortly after the Republican healthcare bill was pulled before going to a vote, the 70-year-old blamed Democrats (namely leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) for the major fail.

Hey Drumpster, we know you're not a huge legislature buff, but you don't need support from the Dems when you have the majority across the board… you just have to create something even your own people like!

Anyway, POTUS went on to say that now he's going to "move on" to other issues like tax reform while he waits around for Obamacare to "explode."

You can't claim to care so0o0o much about the American people, and then just say you're going to watch everything burn in flames! Being a leader doesn't work that way!

Watch his delusional speech from the Oval Office (below)!

Donald Trump Asks Paul Ryan To Pull The Healthcare Bill MINUTES Before House Vote!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald TrumpHealth

no title

Here's something we never thought we'd say: Donald Trump just pulled out!

The President delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers this week, ordering the House of Representatives to vote on the GOP's health care replacement or keeping Obamacare in tact.

The House was set to vote on the legislation on Friday, though most congressionals opposed the half-baked American Health Care Act.

Trump and house speaker Paul Ryan were once confident they could get enough Republican votes to replace the Affordable Care Act — but shit went SOUTH first on Thursday and then during the formal debate on the bill Friday morning.

How south? The House called for a recess just MINUTES before the official vote was supposed to go down. Republican representatives dramatically called for a secret meeting, frantically scrambling for last minute support.

That effort proved to be futile minutes later, when it was reported that the President called for Ryan to pull the bill completely:

Tons of people agree Obamacare is NOT perfect, but we're still waiting to hear what will replace the ACA if it is repealed — despite Donald Trump promising legislation is "very much formulated down to the final strokes."

Obviously Trump isn't very convincing, and Meyers makes sure to call out both the President-elect AND GOP leadership for the ABSURD way they're handling the repeal! We are LOVING his take!

Ch-ch-check out Seth's latest look at the BS in the ACA repeal!
