Ryan Foresees “Bloodbath” if No Obamacare Replacement; Cotton Says Ryan’s Bill Won’t Pass Senate

Date: Sunday, March 12, 2017 8:16 PM EDT

Senator Tom Cotton says House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Obamacare replacement bill will not pass the Senate. Meanwhile, on Face the Nation, House Speaker Paul Ryan said there would be a ‘Bloodbath’ if GOP Fails to Pass Healthcare Legislation.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Sunday said he agrees with President Trump that 2018 will be a “bloodbath” for Republicans if Congress does not pass legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare.

“I do believe that if we don’t keep our word to the people who sent us here, yeah,” Ryan told CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” when asked if he agreed with Trump’s reported comments about the 2018 midterm elections.

Ryan, who used a PowerPoint presentation to defend the House proposals last week, said during the CBS interview that members of Congress are “breaking your word” if they don’t keep campaign promises. “Look. The most important thing for a person like myself who runs for office and tells the people we’re asking to hire us, ‘This is what I’ll do if I get elected.’ And then if you don’t do that, you’re breaking your word,” he said.

Ryan’s Fear Mongering

Are we to believe that voters will switch back to Democrats (who will not reform health care) if Republicans don’t?

Ryan’s fear mongering is nonsensical. How many times has he broken his word? Is Ryan still in office?
