Democrats will not have to worry about blocking the highway bill to save Obamacare, McConnell has done it for them. The majority leader rigged the Obamacare amendment to require 60 votes. He can then claim that he gave Obamacare reform a chance without actually putting it in any position to pass.

Of course Harry Reid had no problem declaring Obamacare a reconciliation bill so it could not be filibustered but go along get along Mitch doesn't want to make Democrats angry by forcing them to vote again on the Obamacare toxic waste dump.

we have better veterans benefits right now than at any other time in our history, all due to this president and a democrat majority congress.
So however Reid changed the text it certainly turned out well for veterans and poor sick people alike.
This republican bill is not even their idea, but a part of Obama's stimulus they never finished passing. It's a carrot in front of a donkey to lead him to the slaughter pens. Well the Democrat Jackass ain't quite that damned gullible I'm thinkin'.

I'mk not sure if you have been sleeping for the past year or are just being obtuse, but the veterans are coming up with the short end of the stick when it comes to their healthcare. VA hospitals are in a shambles thanks to obama and his democrats in congress.

You were complaining about the Republicans attempting to add an amendment to the transportation bill to reform Obamacare. I pointed out that Harry Reid replaced the text of an unrelated bill with the ACA. The former bothered you but the latter not at all. It all depends on if it is your partisan favorite doing the shady parliamentary trick.

Harry Reid's corruption of legislative order to get Obamacare into the Senate before the House passed it wiped out the veteran's bill. So, your claim it helped veterans is nonsense.

My husband just got out of the VA hospital a couple of weeks ago (had blood clots in his lungs and legs). The care was equivalent to red carpet health insurance at a top facility.
A far cry from several years ago when he visited the same Boise VA and the doctors' even looked dirty, and there was this laze fair attitude (and back then he was diagnosed with cancer); At that time we were so glad he had Medicare. He ended up going to a private doctor.
Also since the70s that I know of some VA's were horrible and /or made you wait till you probably died or were so frustrated you couldn't spit. My deceased father n law went through that crap and us along with him.
But no there may be some still not in compliance but we cannot say enough good about the quality of care he got here.

As predicted the Obamacare reform amendment failed but McConnell's import export boondoggle using taxpayer money to subsidize foreign companies passed. Of course McConnell used the same filling up the tree tactic so beloved by Harry Reid to stifle amendments he didn’t favor then rammed the bill through as a sham transportation funding bill in a rare Sunday session. Meet the new majority leader, same as the old slimy majority leader he claimed to detest.

BTW, Ted Cruz was right to call out McConnell for his lies about the Transportation bill.

A much better strategy would be to force Congressional Democrats to vote against reforming Obamacare then force Obama to veto it. Repeat this multiple times so it is clear a vote for a Democrat is a vote for Obamacare and so the Democrats are forced to play defense keeping their caucus in line. In the meantime Republicans should continue to make progress on other issues like defeating the Iran surrender, using the power of the purse to restore fiscal sanity and secure our southern border.

But don't worry, establishment Republicans will continue to moan about how helpless they are without the Presidency while they continue to undermine Conservatives for opposing their RINO policies.
