Rep. Mark Meadows tears into Democrats’ outrage over Trump ‘sabotage’ of ObamaCare

The chairman of the House Freedom Caucus defended President Donald J.Trump’s efforts to complete his promise to repeal and replace the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act also called Obamacare, in an Oct. 19 op-ed for Fox News.

“Hysteria makes for a nice messaging tactic, but facts are stubborn things,” wrote Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) in a recent op-ed for Fox News that he co-wrote with Rep. Ralph W. Norman Jr. (R.-S.C.).

“Remember: ObamaCare was sold on false promises that could never be kept. Recall what they told us in order to sell this bill: If you like your health care plan, you can keep it; if you like your doctors, you can keep them; premiums will go down – and for families they’ll go down by an average of $2,500; deductibles will go down; emergency room visits will go down,” he said.

“All of these assertions were false. Seventy-five percent of the ObamaCare-created state health care co-ops have gone out of business. Premiums have gone up drastically. Deductibles have risen,” he said.

“People lost their health care plans and couldn’t keep their doctors,” he said. “This law made health insurance costlier and it made the business of offering it riskier.”

Meadows and Norman also saluted the president’s Oct. 12 executive order that began the process for approving regulations that would allow organizations and associations to create health insurance plans and expanded Health Reimbursement Arrangements.

These HRA programs are employer-funded and a response to the Obama administration’s hostility to the Health Savings Accounts, which were employee-funded and directed like an Individual Retirement Account.

In the preamble to the executive order, Trump laid out out his own frustration with President Barack Obama’s landmark health care reform legislation.

“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, however, has severely limited the choice of healthcare options available to many Americans and has produced large premium increases in many State individual markets for health insurance,” the president said.

“The average exchange premium in the 39 States that are using www.healthcare.gov in 2017 is more than double the average overall individual market premium recorded in 2013,” he said.

“The PPACA has also largely failed to provide meaningful choice or competition between insurers, resulting in one-third of America’s counties having only one insurer offering coverage on their applicable government-run exchange in 2017,” Trump said.

Trump was joined at the EO signing ceremony by Sen. Rand Paul (R.-Ky.), who has been working with Meadows from the beginning of this congressional session to fulfill the promise to change the country’s health care regime in order to lower premiums and deductions.

Meadow said he dismissed the complaints from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.)  and Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D.-N.Y.), who both criticized the president’s executive order expanding health care rights.

“Let’s put the House and Senate minority leaders’ talking points aside and look at what’s really happened with this executive order,” said the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’

This is what real conservative leadership is all about.

Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.

Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.

“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.

“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.

Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.

One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”

AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.

Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
