GOP Wants To Put Democrats On The Spot Again With Vote On 'Medicare For All'

American Thinker
By Rick Moran
April 11, 2019

Excerpt:

Senate Democrats are livid with GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for forcing them to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to their radical, wildly expensive proposals.

First, McConnell held a vote on the Green New Deal. Every Democratic Senator voted "present." Now McConnell has turned his attention to the Dems "Medicare for all" proposal with a view toward embarrassing them again.
Politico:

McConnell has not yet said whether he’ll bring the health care bill, introduced Wednesday, up for a vote, but some Republicans are hopeful he will.

“I think it deserves a full debate and a vote and see how many Democrats who are co-sponsors actually support it,” said Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said he hoped the bill would be brought to the floor. Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) noted that the decision was ultimately up to McConnell but that a vote “stakes out people’s position,” while Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said that “we’ll see how many of the other senators running for president are co-sponsors of the bill.”

“It’s a big issue, and if they want to have debate on this, we can have one,” Blunt said.

A Senate leadership aide suggested there was openness on the part of Republicans to push for a vote. “The Green New Deal vote helped shine a light on the Democrats’ radical plans,” the aide said, “and we will be looking for future opportunities to highlight their socialist agenda.”

Although McConnell has not indicated what he’ll do on Medicare for All, he blasted the proposal Wednesday in an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier.

“It ought to be called ‘Medicare for None,’” he said. “One hundred eighty million Americans would lose their private health insurance, that many of them have negotiated for at work. … You want to turn America into a socialist country? This is the first step.”

Democrats are bitterly complaining that the vote is more about politics than health care. That's exactly correct. McConnell might point out that Democrats are playing politics by introducing the bill in the first place. There isn't a chance in hell "Medicare for all" would pass the Senate and Democrats know it.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL! Oh the hilariously ironical hypocrisy. Everything the Dems do is about politics, including the whole "Medicare for all" scam.

So, the party that wants to represent you doesn't want you to know what they represent?! Pathetic!

Come on, Democrats! Pass it so we can see what's in it. As PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump says: "What have you got to lose?"

:exactly:
And it's also always about their power and making it seem they are for the powerless. We really are in a weird place in this country and something's gonna blow.

If we are all going to die in 12 years if we don't do something drastic then why did the Democrats vote against the New Green Deal and saving our lives?

If Medicare for all will save lives as we have been told then why aren't Democrats happy to fight the fight?

I think the democrats should embrace an open debate on thier plans. Hopefully they also debate the cost and have a vote. It can’t be that the democrats are afraid to openly explain thier promises, put thier name on the record of what they stand for, let alone openly address the problems with thier plans or costs?

The truth is that the party only wants to represent its members in political office - positions of power - but it must continually fool enough voters in believing it actually represents them.

If GOP plays it right (I can dream eh?) then they’ll be very close to checkmate on several big issues.

They will play it wrong and lose once again Zurg. I have no belief in the republicans having a spine or standing up any more then I think the democrats will be honest. If the republicans had a spine and played the truth would hold. But when was the last time they did that

I have faith in McConnell and his fellow republicans. They'll screw it up as they've always done.
