Bannon Has Gone FULL DICTATOR: ‘This Is Not A Debate. You Have No Choice’
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon spoke with a group of House conservatives before they ultimately decided to pull the GOP’s ObamaCare repeal bill. Bannon told them that they had no choice but to back the bill, according to a report
Guys, look. This is not a discussion. This is not a debate. You have no choice but to vote for this bill,” Bannon reportedly said.
Bannon used his dictator skills to try to convince members of the House Freedom Caucus to push for the American Health Care Act. His demands were not met.
A Freedom Caucus member reportedly replied: “You know, the last time someone ordered me to something, I was 18 years old. And it was my daddy. And I didn’t listen to him, either.”
The conservative group did have a meeting with Donald Trump on Thursday, but they did not discuss any policy specifics of the AHCA.
Although, Trump did attack the caucus on Friday morning with a tweet.
“The irony is that the Freedom Caucus, which is very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, allows P.P. to continue if they stop this plan!” the president wrote.
