Trump On Negotiating Health Bill With Chuck Schumer: He Just Doesn’t Seem Like A Serious Person [VIDEO]

While the Chicago Cubs visited the White House earlier today, ABC News’ Jon Karl got in a question to the President about Schumer’s offer, asking if he’d be “willing to negotiate with all of them.” Trump said this in response:

“I better find out if he’s serious. He hasn’t been serious. Obamacare is such a disaster, such a wreck, and he wants to try and save something that’s really hurting a lot of people… He’d have to be very, very serious. You know, he’s done a lot of talking, bad talking, and he just doesn’t seem like a serious person.”

    The only reason Obamacare is such a disaster is your mission to destroy anything related to Obama.
    Trumpcare is going to be worse, much worse.

    “Bad talking”? JHC. Trump will do anything to avoid negotiating with Schumer because he knows Schumer is far more intelligent and Trump has no idea what’s currently in the bill.

      Hell, Drumpf couldn’t even do that simply. He started with (paraphrasing) ‘I don’t know…I better find out if he’s serious.’ Changing to an insult that ‘he’s not serious.’ Morphing to ‘He better be serious.’ Defaulting back to ‘He’s not serious, because he’s said a lot of bad things.’ This deep thinker went rambling through all these options in less than 30 seconds.

      What the orange shit-show doesn’t get (besides the details and nuances of the Republican “health bill”) is that if he passes this GOP obomination, his name will be forever linked to it and the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans, and the bankruptcies of at least a million. If he doesn’t pass it, then he continues looking like an ineffective “leader.”

      Schumer really doesn’t have anything to lose here. It’s a win-win for him either way. If Drumpf & Colluders reject any of Schumer’s suggestions, millions of Americans will be harmed and turn against the GOP. If Schumer has his ideas implemented, it can only help people…including Schumer’s constituents, making him look good.

      Shitting on people you’re about to negotiate with, when they have nothing to lose, while you have everything to lose…is nothing short asinine. So much for the “great negotiator” and his “superior business acumen.”

    I feel like a clucking chicken but…. DUMB FUCK, DUMB FUCK, DUMB FUCK!!! To quote Roger Waters at his awesome concert I saw in Denver “Imagine a leader with NO fucking brains”. Although there have certainly been problems (mostly due to greedy insurance companies), Obamacare has worked very well. Much like what it was modeled after, Romneycare in Massachusetts. I live in New Mexico and due to my lower income and the Obamacare/state Medicaid program – I have excellent, FREE medical coverage. As do many others in this state. Trump and the GOPs big objection to Obamacare is mostly that the insurance companies have been making WAY less billions than what they did previously. Even though they have still made obscene profits under Obamacare. It’s all about money – like EVERYTHING with Trump and the GOP. And giving more to themselves and their wealthy “owners”. Fuck the poor, the sick, the less fortunate. It’s their lot in life. Why are we still the only country in the world with such a fucked-up profit driven healthcare system. I just answered my own question. Profits. Not people, not compassion, not healing. MONEY!!!

    • j.martindale

      Obamacare is a disaster in North Carolina. Our premiums are almost $800 a month for one person, and a $6,000 deductible bronze policy. If you live in a poorer community where the middle class have to carry the load of the poor, it is atrocious. No, Obamacare is fine for people with large employers or in wealthy communities. For the self employed who are middle income, it sucks. This is not to suggest I think Trumpcare is better in any respects, but don’t kid yourself about how wonderful Obamacare is. It almost doubled my husband’s premiums. It is woefully irregular in how it benefits people. And don’t ignore the complaints of people who have suffered from the system. They aren’t just Rethugs.

      • Boreal

        Did North Carolina accept the Medicaid expansion?

        • j.martindale

          No, but even if it did, I don’t believe that would help me at all.

          • Boreal

            I do. In the states that expanded, we don’t have that problem. My sister, who is poor pays $30 a month for insurance on the exchanges. Obamacare didn’t fail, it was sabotaged. Insurance is a risk pool. If the 19 states that opted out, hadn’t, then everyones costs would be lower. I pay $102 a month.

          • j.martindale

            The medicaid recipients would benefit. There are other factors that affect people like me: one partner on Medicare, earning as a couple, small business too small for SHOP plans. The system is crap.

          • Boreal

            I’m not a medicaid recipient. I receive no subsidies. It’s better than what we had before where you could be discriminated against for pre-existing conditions and denied payment due to lifetime limits. I went without insurance for over 10 years pre ACA due to the cost of insurance due to pre-existing conditions.

          • j.martindale

            It works some places, some time, under some conditions, with some insurance companies–IF you are lucky. What the thugs offer is altogether worse. A national plan without the inequities of regional insurers is what is needed. In the meantime, some of us are shafted.

          • Boreal

            We are trying for state single payer here in NY but of course the repigs are opposing it.

      • TK

        I know there are big problems elsewhere – like your state. And my relatives in Florida say the same thing. It’s very FAR from perfect but at least Obama tried to get something working. Applying a federal program to all the state and insurance company variations was a nearly impossible task. And I think Obama tried to prevent these awful increases but the Rethugs would have none of it. He wanted to restrict premium increases, less coverage and like most stuff in DC, it just turned into a cluster-fuck version that they could finally get enough votes to pass it. Trumpcare would be an even bigger disaster by far. The whole thing needs to be revamped into a fair and equitable system – but I doubt that’s gonna happen. What really galls me is these fucking politicians, esp. that royal asshole McConnell daring to stand up there, dictating these draconian policies for the less fortunate while he and his cronies are sitting on their fat-cat salaries, life-time pensions, gold-plated lifetime healthcare and even if you don’t like what he does or says, you cant’ fire him. And even if you could, he doesn’t lose his coverage or perks. The whole system is SOOOO fucked up!!!

      • stevenj

        The one advantage to being self employed is that you can deduct off your federal tax 100% of the premiums come tax time. Coming up with the money monthly though can be the problem. I was self employed for 24 years. I always had rising premiums, high deductibles and basically I bought a catastrophic policy that I thought was too expensive for what it covered. I was denied a less expensive plan at another insurance company at one time because they claimed I had a pre existing condition. If the Republicans had actually tried to fix Obamacare instead of scuttling it the problem of insurance companies in states like NC bailing might have gotten fixed. I’d prefer to see a single payer plan nationwide.

      Major insurers are pulling out of some state exchanges . . .
      because they don’t trust Trump to fund Medicaid reimbursements for care that’s already been provided.

      • Ninja0980

        And because of Republican sabotage.

      • Jerry Kott

        Prior to that, was it working for anyone?

        • Joe

          • Jerry Kott

            Great. From what I have heard, the majority have been satisfied with ACA. It has been a life savor from what I have heard. I just don’t get the hysteria about the repeal.

    • ultragreen

      Never take what Republicans say literally. Many wealthy Republicans just want to slash health care for the poor and the middle class, regardless of the details or consequences. The bills in the U.S. House and Senate represented one step toward that goal. When people found out how bad these bills were, they vigorously opposed it. Eric Trump expressed the true attitude of the conservative elite toward everyday Americans by stating that the latter were subhumans (eaters) who didn’t deserve health care. I’m certain Donald Trump shares the same attitude.

      • Jerry Kott

        Why isn’t this bill called “Wealth Care”. The Republicans can’t be trusted when the people are concerned but many have express how ACA has helped them. I just don’t get the urgency to end it when many are happy with it. If it isn’t broke, why fix it?

    • David Walker

      My piece of shit senator was probably one of the 5.
      Washington, D.C. – Sen. Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement on today’s announcement that a vote on the Senate health care bill will be delayed:

      “The Better Care Reconciliation Act is not perfect, but it is a positive step toward repairing the damages caused by Obamacare and putting Medicaid on a sustainable fiscal path. Introduction of the draft bill was just the beginning of the process. There will be additional changes based on feedback from senators and the public before there is a final product ready for a vote.

      “My hope is Republican senators can quickly come together on legislation to fulfill our promise to repeal and replace Obamacare with a system that puts families in charge of their health care decisions and restores access to affordable coverage.”

    • BobSF_94117

      Some people had to buy more expensive insurance. They’re unhappy. What they don’t realize is that the insurance they had was crap.

      Some people who chose not to have insurance have to pay a penalty.

      A lot of premiums went up. Well, that’s as much, if not more, the insurance industry at work than Obamacare’s effect.

      And a lot of people have been hurt because the GOP has sabotaged healthcare, forcing companies to abandon markets, etc.

      • But the main people that were hurt by the ACA was the rich, they didn’t get the big juicy tax cut the GOP was promising them.

    I really have to admire the power of the Rethuglican Tautology(TM). Every right wing piece of shit can freely say anything is a fact and nobody questions it. The moment it’s circulating through the talking points, it magically becomes fact. Only the latest one is “Obamacare is a disaster/failing/killing kittens/etc” but there have been so many of these and they make me so fucking sick.

    • leastyebejudged

      The ACA has been a disaster for people though, the constant denial that anybody’s been harmed by it is the source of a great deal of voter rage.

      But keep on your idiotic talking point maybe you can hand Trump another victory !

      • Luther Kreiger

          This is exactly what I’m saying, look at you.

          • Luther Kreiger

            Funnily enough, I have looked at the numbers quite a bit over the years. The huge decrease in uninsured and the national increase in availability of healthcare for those with less income is very positive. Is it a proper first-world health care system? Hell no, but it’s a step in the right direction. And this is all with it being hamstrung by nonstop and continued Republican obstruction, foot-dragging, and one of the most important aspects of the law (statewide exchanges) being cut out through judicial malfeasance.

            If you’re going to just sit there, claim you’re right and not actually point out who is being put through a “disaster” or why, well, you’re not just a bad troll but you’re lazy, too.

      • CottonBlimp

        The ACA is born out of a fucked up center-right business-over-humans ideology that merely placed a bandaid on the festering wound that is our private health insurance system, but to say it’s been a disaster is ridiculous. The ACA is nowhere near the basic level of adequacy most developed nations have with socialist health systems, but it has saved countless lives. I just happened to read about how cardiac arrests dropped 17 percent thanks to the ACA expanding coverage. Bankruptcies have been in steady decline since the ACA’s passing. And ffs, aren’t you glad you no longer see the once commonplace news story, “local resident dying because insurance won’t cover needed treatment”?

    If the negotiations were anything like trump’s ‘brilliant’ rallying the senators, Schumer was probably running out of one and two syllable words.

    Of course, in Drumpfese “serious” means corrupt, incompetent and deranged.

  • ultragreen

  • Mikey

    Why doesn’t someone ASK the idiot what it is about “Obama care” that is such a “disaster”?
    My god, this moron just repeats words and probably thinks that if he says them often enough people will take him seriously (and sadly, yeah, his supporters do).
