GOP only have themselves to blame ( voters should recall their broken promise on Election Day )

Over seven years ago, Democrats in Congress joined President Obama to create a massive expansion of Washington’s role in our health care system. And in the time since then, we’ve witnessed the many ways in which Obamacare has hurt the American health system.
Republicans in the United States Senate had the opportunity this week to repeal large parts of that law and to set health policy in America on a different course. The GOP legislation wasn’t perfect, but was certainly an improvement on the status quo. It was also the best chance Republicansand  have ever had to substantially repeal and replace Obamacare.

Congress Passes Bill To Repeal And Replace Obamacare

It is a start. Read the story.

Some in the GOP including some on the right failed the American voter, and failed President Trump ( Thank you!!!!! )

How disappointing the bill to kill Obamacare looks to be dead.      Thanks GOP. One of the reasons you were put in office was to rid the nation of this horrible law.

  You have failed the American voters, along with failing President Trump. 

     You wanted a perfect bill, and now we have none. Thanks Congressman Beacon here from Nebraska for supporting this bill. 

     I am outrage at the GOP including those on the right.

A victory for common sense

The decision of the Trump administration to overturn President Obama’s “transgender bathroom policy” and instead to correlate bathroom usage with one’s biological sex is not a victory for any political group. It is a victory for common sense. It is an affirmation of basic human sanity.

President Bush ( who I like ) still doesn’t get it on Islam, and so much more,as he attacks President Trump 

President Bush who did many good things for America, use to drive me nuts, when he went out of his way to say Islam was a peaceful faith. Yes there are people in that faith who are peaceful. However those who truly are committed to the faith are not peaceful. They are the ones who are making it hard for Jewish people, and followers of Christ to live around the world.Thse who are truly committed Islam wants Israel, and America destroyed. They want every follower of Jesus,along with every Jewish soul dead.

  I am sorry to write President Bush still feels the same way. In this video he once again defends Islam. He also seems to let it be known that he does not agree with President Trump on trying to keep others from our land who might harm our nation. 

   Whatever happened to the rule of former presidents not attacking sitting presidents. Where was Bush when President Obama was destroying America with his radical left agenda. I didn’t hear anything out of him. So was I in dream land? Did you hear anything out of President Bush when Obama was trying to destroy our nation. 

Evangelicals should be at the education table, and the focus should be on saving the poor kids not saving  the public schools 

Evangelicals played a large role in getting President Donald Trump to the White House, and now they will shape Trump’s education agenda.
Betsy DeVos, Trump’s beleaguered pick for education secretary, supports taxpayer funding for religious schools and once called education reform a way to “advance God’s kingdom.”
Mike Pence, a leader in the evangelical community, will likely break a tie in the Senate to ensure DeVos’ nomination.
And Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of one the largest evangelical colleges in the nation, Liberty University, will lead an education reform task force focusing on higher education.
“They weren’t even at the table under President (Barack) Obama,” said North Carolina Republican Rep. Robert Pittenger, who is connected to the evangelical community. “I think it’s prudent … that those who have a world view of the Bible be able to have a conversation.”

In education circles, a major part of that conversation is an ongoing policy debate on the role of vouchers and taxpayer funding for religious schools. Liberal Democrats have vocally opposed DeVos’ nomination and turned it into a referendum on allowing tax dollars to be spent on scholarships for students to attend religiously affiliated schools.
“I don’t think that religion defines a person, but what we see is a real clear agenda that Trump began,” said Mary Kusler, who is overseeing the National Education Association’s effort to oppose DeVos’ nomination. “We believe that the public school system has largely been a cornerstone of democracy.”

( Billy’s thoughts – Did the media question when the people who wanted  faithless things in education were invited to the table under President Obama. Nope those folks helped put Obama in office. In the same way evangelicals helped get Donald Trump to the White House ,so why should we not be at the table of education. Besides those of us who want choice in education  just want to give poor parents the same choice in education that President Obama made. When Obama had a chance to send his daughters to a public school system that is run down, he picked a private school. Clinton did the same thing with his daughter. I do not fault Clinton, or Obama for sending their kids to private schools. All good  parents want to do what is best for their child. I just wish those on the left would give the same choice to poor parents. Yes there are good teachers in the public schools, but the department of education job should not be about saving the public schools. Instead they should focus on saving the kids including the poor kids who are stuck in schools which are failing them. Read the rest of the above story. )

Obama’s $221M gift to Palestinians put on hold ( good for President Trump ) 

Millions of dollars promised by Barack Obama and John Kerry to the Palestinian Authority just before officially leaving office have been put on hold by the Trump State Department.
In the last hours of his presidency, President Obama defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority. Former Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly informed some lawmakers of the move shortly before he left the State Department for the last time Thursday.
But yesterday, according to FOX News and other news outlets, the State Department announced it had decided to review the last-minute decision and might make adjustments to ensure it comports with the priorities of the Trump administration. The Times of Israel reports that according to a senior Palestinian source, U.S. officials told PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah the funds weren’t expected to be handed over in the immediate future.
