GOP Wasting No Time in Effort to Repeal Obamacare

Congressional Republicans are not going to wait for Donald Trump’s inauguration to get started on one of his signature promises. With the landscape clear for an Obamacare repeal, GOP lawmakers plan to take immediate steps in Congress that will make it easier for them to finally dismantle Obama’s destructive Affordable Care Act.

House Republicans plan to introduce a new pack of rules on Tuesday that will set the stage for repeal legislation. First, they must tackle the thorny problem of what might appear to be an increase in federal spending – an illusion the Democrats are already taking advantage of in their public relations campaign for the law.

The rules would protect any bills aimed at repealing the ACA from another rule aimed at preventing an increase in government spending. Reason being – a repeal of the law, absent a coherent replacement, would indeed mean an increase in spending. This is because the ACA saves billions of dollars by reducing the amount of federal Medicare payments to hospitals.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is jumping on this point to argue against the repeal. “Republicans are admitting that repealing the Affordable Care Act will increase costs,” she said.

But of course, that’s only true if the Republicans don’t plan on replacing the Obamacare system with a new healthcare law. No one in the GOP is seriously proposing a move back to the old way. Everyone recognizes the highlights of the ACA, few as they may be.

This shows you how important it will be for Republicans to get out in front of this thing from a media perspective. It’s not going to be enough just to go in there with a foolproof legislative strategy. If public opinion turns against repealing Obamacare, it’s going to die before the GOP ever puts it up for a vote. It won’t be any Democratic maneuvering in the House that stops them; it will be the Democratic maneuvering in the press.

We’ve seen the GOP get stymied this way many times before. They get swamped by the overwhelmingly negative media coverage and have no choice but to back down. They can’t let that happen with the ACA. They have to go on TV and make the case. They have to follow Donald Trump’s example: Take the message straight to the people and stop waiting for the liberal media to give you a fair shake. It isn’t going to happen.

    This is simply a nuisance. The Republicans can always cut, cut, cut somewhere. They are good at that even if they were profligate spenders during the Bush II years. Especially they can cut the taxes of the very rich.

    • Borninbrooklyn

      Yeah, they could CUT the spending on ovomits security detail 🙂

    • steppenfetchit

      I hate to see a grown man cry, especially when he is wrong in his misery. I feel the unaffordable care act is not your reason for such stupid comments, it is your constant whining about having the fool you sponsored election not getting her chance to ruin America. One of your greatest freedoms is the ability to relocate. Please take as many of the crying, lying media with you. You can start with Dippy Goldberg, Joy Likesthecigar and the other bigmouths on their show. You can get extra credit for loading up larda$$ Dunham.

      • Martbigee

        Why didn’t you follow your own advice and move during the Obama years? Wasn’t 8 years enough for you to decide where you’d like to go?

        • steppenfetchit

          I never said I would leave if Obama won. Dippy, joy, Dunham and a whole lot of other sniveling liberal liars said they would leave the country if Trump was elected. Well he was and they didn’t, which makes them a group of democrat (jacka$$) liars right? Even a braindead Hillary twit should be able see that

        • KABUSA

          Was getting ready should the daughter of satan win. I wouldnt say it just do it. Already bought the property overseas

  • sharonhansen209

    There are new taxes in Obamacare that has nothing to do with healthcare.

  • Jose Alverez

    Obocare has been a disaster. Only the ideologic idiots think otherwise. The rinos need to learn to ignore the biased press; no matter what, they’ll never approve of anything republican. They’re just a wing of the socialist party.

  • Justin Seine

    A California man’s experience with Obamacare and what he learned!

    “I’m a 54 year old and make between
    $60,000 and $125,000 per year, depending on how hard I work and
    whether or not there are work projects out there for me. My
    girlfriend is 61 and makes about $18,000 per year, working as a
    part-time mail clerk.

    For me, making $60,000 a year, under
    Obamacare, the cheapest, lowest grade policy I can buy, which also
    happens to impose a $5,000 deductible, costs $482 per month. For my
    girlfriend, the same exact policy, same deductible, costs $1 per
    month. That’s right, $1 per month. I’m not making this up.

    Don’t
    believe me? Just go to http://www.coveredca.gov/, the Obamacare
    website for California and enter the parameters I’ve mentioned above
    and see for yourself. Use the zip code 93940, you’ll need to
    enter that.

    So…. OK, clearly Obamacare is a scheme that
    involves putting the cost burden of healthcare onto the middle and
    upper-income wage earners. But there’s a lot more to it. Stick with
    me. And before I make my next points, I’d like you to think about
    something:

    I live in Monterey County, in Central California.
    We have a large land mass but just 426,000 residents – about the
    population of Colorado Springs or the city of Omaha. But we do have a
    large Hispanic population, including a large number of illegal
    aliens, and to serve this group we have Natividad Medical Center, a
    massive, Federally subsidized county medical complex that takes up an
    area about one-third the size of the Chrysler Corporation automobile
    assembly plant in Belvedere, Illinois (per Google Earth).

    Natividad
    has state-of-the-art operating rooms, Computed Tomography and
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fully equipped, 24 hour emergency room,
    and much more. If you have no insurance, if you’ve been in a drive-by
    shooting or have overdosed on crack cocaine, this is where you go.
    And it’s essentially free, because almost everyone who ends up in the
    ER is uninsured.

    Last year, 2,735 babies were born at
    Natividad. 32% of these were born to out-of-wedlock teenage mothers,
    93% of which were Hispanic. Less than 20% could demonstrate proof of
    citizenship, and 71% listed their native language as Spanish. Of
    these 876 births, only 40 were covered under any kind of private
    health insurance. The taxpayers paid for the other 836. AND in case
    you were wondering about the entire population – all 2,735 births –
    less than 24% involved insured coverage or even partial payment on
    behalf of the patient to the hospital in exchange for services. Keep
    this in mind as we move forward.

    NOW consider this: If I want
    to upgrade my policy to a low-deductible premium policy, such as what
    I had with my last employer, my cost is $886 per month. BUT my
    girlfriend can upgrade her policy to the very same level, for just $4
    per month. That’s right, $4 per month, $48 per year for a
    zero-deductible, premium healthcare policy – the kind of thing you
    get when you work at IBM (except of course, IBM employees pay an
    average of $170 per month out of pocket for their coverage).

    I
    mean, it’s bad enough that I will be forced to subsidize the Obamacare scheme in the first place. But even if I agreed with the basic
    scheme, which, of course I do not, I would never agree to subsidize
    premium policies. If I have to pay $482 a month for a budget policy,
    I sure as hell do not want the guy I’m subsidizing to get a better
    policy, for less than 1% of what I have to fork out each month for a
    low-end policy. Why must I pay $482 per month for something the other
    guy gets for a dollar? And why should the other guy get to buy an
    $886 policy for $4 a month?

    Think about this: I have to pay
    $10,632 a year for the same thing that the other guy can get for $48.
    $10,000 of net income is 60 days of full time work as an engineer;
    $48 is something I could make collecting aluminum cans and plastic
    bottles, one day a month.

    Are you with me on this? Are you
    starting to get an idea what Obamacare is really about? Obamacare
    is not about dealing with inequities in the healthcare system. That’s
    just the cover story. The real story is that it is a massive,
    political power grab.

    Do you think anyone who can insure
    himself with a premium policy for $4 a month will vote for anyone but
    the political party that provides him such a deal? Obamacare is
    about enabling, subsidizing, and expanding the Left’s political power
    base, at taxpayer expense. Why would I vote for anyone but a Democrat
    if I can have babies for $4 a month?

    For that matter, why
    would I go to college or strive for a better job or income if it
    means I have to pay real money for healthcare coverage? Heck, why
    study engineering when I can be a schlep for $20K per year and buy a
    new F-150 with all the money I’m saving?

    And think about those
    $4-a-month babies – think in terms of propagation models. Think of
    just how many babies will be born to irresponsible, under-educated
    mothers. Will we get a new crop of brain surgeons and particle
    physicists from the dollar baby club, or will we need more cops,
    criminal courts and prisons? One thing you can be certain of: At $4 a
    month, they’ll multiply, and multiply, and multiply.

    Obamacare? It’s all about political power – nothing more!!!”

    • Thomjeff

      Exactly why there letting them across the border by the thousands and not having to show id to vote. If Trump don’t put a stop to it republicans won’t stand a chance in future elections. Build the damn wall and send the criminals back where they came from. Other countries don’t allow this, why should we?

      • Martbigee

        We should have done that before your family was allowed in.

        • Thomjeff

          My family came in with the rest of the Native Americans. What say you libtard?

          • KABUSA

            Mine since 1700

          • Thomjeff

            That’s great.They just don’t get it. We want and need immigrants, we just don’t want it done illegally.
            Try to get into Mexico without the proper documents and see what happens. And stop calling people racist, that’s starting to get a little old and quite frankly not helping anything and is very devisive.

          • KABUSA

            Agree. Very few racists where i live. I don’t know any. Groups like blacklivesmatter come to mind

          • grafra102

            Thomjeff: OR DIE DOING IT!!!!

          • Masoobee

            What tribe?

        • MikeS

          My family went through immigration registration and became citizens like all immigrants that want to stay here should.

          • Thomjeff

            Then why do you take up for the illegals? Build the wall.

          • Susan Short

            If Trump builds that wall, and does what he said he will do, he will win the 2020 election easily!

          • Thomjeff

            Amen

          • Ray

            Absolutely, We the People, have spoken and that is why we voted for him to get things done.

          • Masoobee

            Oh stop with the “liberal” stuff…….do you have to discredit anyone who has different views . Turn off Limbaugh amd Fox, they are polluting your good sense.

          • Thomjeff

            Maybe you should watch Limbaugh and you might gain some knowledge. Don’t tell me you’re afraid he might sway you.
            Anyway, i call it like i see it because I’m a true conservative and very proud of it. I don’t listen to Fox and god help me if I ever turn on cnn msnbc or any other leftwing propaganda (so called news media, )machine.
            But maybe you’re right about the liberal thing because liberals are supposed to be, open minded, tolerant, free of bigotry and prejudice and last but not least, non- judgemental. Although you may very well fit into one or more of these categories, most of the ones I know certainly do not possess any of these qualities.
            With that being said maybe I should change my way of thinking and start calling them things like, Progressives, leftists, extreme liberals, leftwing nut jobs, unhinged lunatics, useful idiots, weak minded fools, socialist, obstructionist, riot instigators, commiecrats, demorats, lying libtards etc, or just plain ole s**tbaggers. But If i did “I WOULD BE ONE Of THEM” YIKES! Back to reality here.
            I think I’ll just stick to liberals and actually that’s a pretty good name, if in fact that’s what you really are? Can’t we all just get along. Please? There, (long pause) I said it.

          • Masoobee

            I do listen to Limbaugh, as much as I can stand to. And when issues arise I always switch to Fox to hear how O’Reilley and Hannity report them. I then research the net to gain as much understanding of the issue as is available. From this I learn how the story is being manipulated.

          • Thomjeff

            If you listen to Rush L as you say and you truly hear his words with an open mind, you will find that the truth may very well hurt 😭, but the truth you will hear. The man does not lie as you very well know. Got to be the smartest man on the planet. More listener than all of the other commentators put together. And he knows what he’s talking about and in the end, thats what counts the most. The TRUTH IF YOU DARE TO LISTEN , is LIMBAUGH.

        I have a biz in Mexico. They are tough on immigration and enforce their laws. I pay taxes their yet it took 14 years to earn a work visa even though i have four college degrees – 2 in engineering 1 in geology 1 in bible. We are importing democratic and communist votes with no skills. Why? We are not a country of immigrants but of citizens. We need to be for citizens – for of and by the people – our people

      • mudguy1

        Yes and Other countries don’t allow non citizens to vote. 600,000 of them voted in Cal. what a country.

        • Masoobee

          “Automated voter registration is actually a more secure way of doing things,” California Secretary of State Alex Padilla told HuffPost in September. Potential voters “have to demonstrate proof of age, the vast majority of time people are showing a birth certificate or a passport, which also reflects citizenship. That’s arguably more secure than someone checking a box under penalty of perjury,” Padilla said.

          • mudguy1

            And you actually belive Alex Padilla. Try getting a drivers license in Arizona when you move there from Cal. You have to show your birth certificate. If it is not REQUIERD to show your birth certificate when one gets a drivers license in Cal. and to register to vote at the same time then the illegals will get to vote. Just how secure is that.

          • Masoobee

            How does one show proof of age otherwise?

          • mudguy1

            I don’t know about your birth certificate but mine tells what year I was born. I And think that just might tell how old I am. Oh yes it also tells what what state, county and city. which proves I am a citizen.
            Which proves that I have the right to vote.

          • Masoobee

            So does mine….I am missing your point

          • mudguy1

            “How does one show proof of age otherwise?” These are your words. What are you missing?

        “Why should we?”

        We should NOT!

        But we are.

        Why?

        Because our government is staffed with elected officials who are globalists — dedicated to creating a one world government run by globalist “elites” like Soros, Clinton, Bush . . . .

      Better than the article. Im a masters level engineer and was paying 1800 per month under Obamacare- medical only- 5000 deductable per family member. Putting 6 kids through college. 2enginners, 1 doctor, 1 nurse, 1 beautitian and one mom. This gntleman nailed it. My kids will be and are productive. Now we use christian care, 500 per month 10000 deductable. I’d like obamacare killed and all paying taxes like carson promoted.

    • Defend America

      My husband is 60 years old. He makes $47,000.00 per year his insurance went to $911.00 per month for 2017 with a $10,000.00 deductible. This is why the working class must get rid of Obama care. I am on Medicare and I pay $300.00 a month.

      • grafra102

        Defend America: That is still too high of a premium!!!

        • Defend America

          You are 100% correct. Can’t afford to live under Obama’s affordable Care act. Everyone will eventually be in the poor house at this rate. Then again that is what he wants. The rich and the poor no in between.

    • Nancy Redmon

      You have made a very good point and I agree with you! Why would anyone want to go to college and get a better job just to pay for some one else to have the family you should be having??

      My advise to you is don’t get married. I am retired but income wise similar to you and my now husband is financially about the same as your girlfriend. I have insurance because of medicare but hubby is too young, therefore doesn’t have any insurance. I will be interested to see just what our penalty is going to be with me insured and him not. I believe the penalty is going to be less than what insurance would cost for hubby, at least I hope. I guess I will find out come April 15th.

    • Frederick King

      You make a very good point on how many rocket scientists we get for subsidizing babies for illegals and the next generation of career criminals and such. The low end people must be forced to pay enough that it gets their attention.
      I’m retired medical staff, worked at a level one trauma center for a long time. Too many million dollar and “free babies.” Something must be done about this. Medical expenses must be brought down. Too many rewards here for irresponsible behavior, and paying for illegals.
      Medical care must reformed in a manner which really helps Americans.
      Very good analysis, Sir.

      You’re just a racist and liar. Obamacare works for me. Even Bill Orielly at FoxNews loves Obamacare. But anything good done by a Black man is no good to you. But other way Please tell me what those morons in Congress actually do for a living. Pick on Hillary and President Obama and now Trump? Last year they were after IRS; but they lost. Then they attacked the VA secretary; they lost that one too; then came Comey issues. At least Repubs and TPs threatened him. Comey attacked Hillary five days before the elections. Now some Repubs and TPs do not want to attend Trump inauguration. Even Sarah Palin who declined to be VA Chief is not attending. So Trump will have about 100,000 attending. Even entertainers do not want to perform at Trump parties. These are pure Repubs or Conservatives. What did Trump do wrong to them? Nothing. They are just jealous that he will be in the WH with all his relatives: ex-wives; sons and their wives; grand-sons. Thank God Trump is going to expand Obamacare. We wish Trump the best.

      This should be posted on other sites.

      What a total asinine post…just shows how clueless you are…

      Educate yourself before you post…

    • Gammi2Anna

      I agree that Obamacare is about political power, but there is something else. Ina 2007 campaign interview, Barrack Hussein Obama told the reporter that “it is my plan to bring Universal Healthcare to America”. He also explained that “it will take me some time to put insurance companies out of business.” In another interview with Obama regarding his ACA plans he stated “Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery but taking the pain pill instead”. In the original version of Obama’s Healthcare Reform Act, on pages 150-160 it is explained how, through the process of elimination, this healthcare reform act will lead us down a path to a single payer system (ie. Universal Healthcare) by easing insurers out of business. During the celebration of the signing of the ACA on 03/23/10, Obama and Barney Frank referred to the bill as “just a means to an end.” I am a nurse and knew that universal healthcare was not going to be a good thing so when I was introduced to a group of other professionals from not just medical but legal, financial, education, politics, homemakers and business owners from all walks of life. I joined the group with each person being assigned a specific number of pages from the 2700 + pages of the bill to read and then write a synopsis of our interpretation of the assigned section. The section I was assigned was primarily applicable to Medicare beneficiaries. I cannot express just how stunned and helpless I felt after reading how the HHS secretary would have the express power of making ALL healthcare decisions, based on a ‘risk score’ as specified by HHS, especially for what they labeled as “targeted high need beneficiaries”. On page 503. line 13-19 it explains how the Government will build registries and data networks from our electronic medical records. Page 735, lines 16-25 gives notice that “For law enforcement purposes, the HHS secretary will give the Attorney General access to ALL patient/medical data collected”. Little did I know at the time that in just 3 short months after the bill was signed in law, it would become a life changing event in our families life. My husband and I also owned and operated a long-haul trucking company which was successful enough to allow us to have our own healthcare coverage with a reputable Insurance company. In June , 2010 my husband was the victim of a very rare illness that left him dependent on a ventilator and totally paralyzed. I was soon introduced to what Obama meant when he suggested ‘maybe you’d be better off not having the surgery but taking the pain pill.’ It was determined that my husbands condition fell into the ‘targeted high need beneficiary’ which allowed his care to be limited to “comfort care only”. Being a nurse, I understood the meaning, which was that the patient is made comfortable with pain/sedative medications until they died. Our son and I did not want to ‘just let him die’ when we knew his illness was recoverable so we made the difficult but necessary decision to sacrifice all we had worked for which lead to shutting down our business, selling all our vehicles and our home, and emptying out our retirement and savings accounts in order to pay for the services he needed. Due to the regulations and mandates of Obamacare, we were transferred to 7 different medical and rehab facilities across 3 different states during the 376 days required for him to recover. I knew when I was reading the bill that it would be detrimental to our healthcare system, but never did it occur to me that we would be left homeless, penniless and desperate at a time in our lives when we should have been planning our retirement. Just wanted to share this so that those who read your account of how this bill is set up to be outrageously ridiculous in premium determinations will also be alerted to the devastation that this bill carries for those who are determined to be a NCO (non productive citizen) and limited to CCO (comfort care only). We now live on our limited Social Security benefits and found a small home near to where our son lives but far away from the hometown we loved. I have followed the cases of many other people who have been forced to make the decision to “pull the plug” so to speak for conditions similar to my husbands which are recoverable if given the proper treatment, care and time. Controlling healthcare is the first and most important level of control that must be obtained before being able to create a Social State, according to the teachings of Saul Alinsky, a man which Obama stated that he admired and honored his teachings.

      • Masoobee

        May I ask whether your husband’s diagnosis was Guillain Barre Syndrome? I know of a similar case and am just wondering.

          Yes it was. He case was diagnosed as the most severe case that had ever been diagnosed in the United States. The top Neurologist that is considered an expert in the study of GBS in the U.S. was consulted, blood was drawn and sent to some of the largest medical institutes where research was being done. There was no causation ever discovered. During my husbands recovery, there was a time when his Doctors thought that having access to a computer might be of benefit by increasing his cognizant awareness and memory retention. Our sons co-workers donated the money to purchase a lap-top and it did make a world of difference. My husband wanted to know more about GBS to better understand what he had gone through so I found the GBS Foundation and the GBS Survivors support group. Over the years we have sadly noticed how so many, especially elderly victims families had made the decision to have their loved one been taken off the ventilator as per advice from the medical team. We give thanks to God every day that we did not relent to this suggestion from my husbands doctors and our insurer. If the needed treatment was denied by our insurer, we requested reviews and reconsiderations not only with our insurer but also through our State Commissioner of Insurance. This is how it happened that we had to give up all that we had worked all our lives to earn. A business, home, vehicle or retirement account was not more important than my husbands life. Only by the Grace of God and the prayers and assistance we received from family, friends, people we will never meet, plus my husbands sheer determination to recover did we get the chance for life again. The mandates and regulations found in the ACA (Obamacare) does not allow for money to be spent for patients with any long term recovery status. I have described it as a form of genocide, set up to weed out those with mental/physical and other health related issues that the government determines to be within their “targeted high need beneficiary” as spelled out in the ACA. I pray that the case you know of was successful in their recovery.

      Thanks for sharing your story…we the American public have been had by the Democrats who signed this bill into law without even reading it …consequently Obamacare is a mess and now that we have a Republican president the Democrats want to shift the blame of it’s failure over and onto the backs of the Republican Party now renaming it Trumpcare…What Trump should have done is to do nothing…he should tell the Democrats that we are not repealing Obama care at least not for the next 4 years…Explaining the Democrats have 4 more years to see if they can fix Obamacare which they can’t and then let the cards fall where they may…pointing out the disastrous policies of Obamacare up and until the next presidential election…Trump would win by a land slide.

  • Rick D.

    Great news!! The sooner we get this monstrous and ridiculous medical disaster off the books, the better. With enormous deductibles, whatever appears to be a reasonable monthly premium proves to be a worthless policy.

    • John

      Obamacare is just a plan to take care of the illegals and those who choose to not work to have insurance coverage. Hang the ones that approved it. Take the money back from those demos and put it into building American again.

      • PatriotGal

        John, but, but, but OWEbama promised it wouldn’t cover ILLEGALS!!!!

        • John Somers

          Just like everything he was able to screw WE THE PEOPLE out of for the last 8 years.
          Unfortunately, repealing is going to take time as it CAN’T be done as an immediate thing. You do know I hope that the Democ RATS and some republi CANS are going to vote to keep the damn thing. I do believe just like he always does, TRUMP WILL find a way.

    • IMSweetOlBob

      Right ! Who can afford a $ 10,000 dollar deductible. That means YOU pay for everything up to ten grand while Obamacare spits and whistles and pays nothing while it watches you die.

  • TexRancher

    About time! There is simply too much in ObamaCare that is NOT about healthcare! ex; A private army (stabilization force) equal in size and funding to our current military that answers only to Obama (soon to be gone, thank God) and reported provisions for those running ObamaCare (maybe through the IRS) to attack your estate when you die to recover costs paid out for your care by ObamaCare!

    • PatriotGal

      Tex, having read the original OWEbamaTAX, I was sick at the total control in the hands of the Sec of HHS – at that time, Sebellius – who according to the document had more power than the POTUS. As worded, she and she alone with no appeal had life-ending decisions in her hands.

    • IMSweetOlBob

      And mandatory coverage for Muslims written out by the muslim in the white house.

  • Catherine Stevens

    Yeah great. Knock 20 MILLION people out of health care coverage without a replacement plan. Healthcare is the largest expense if your are sick. And don’t be seriously ill, because you’ll end up in bankruptcy.

    • PatriotGal

      Catherine, we were told OWEbamaTAX was created to cover the 15 million who had no coverage. Well, now there are more than 15 million with no coverage because they cannot afford to pay for the coverage. Somehow, you bleeding hearts have got to get a grip on reality, in other words, TRUTH. As for bankruptcy without insurance, even with insurance you wind up in bankruptcy because insurance companies find ways not to pay…coding, diagnosis, unnecessary testings, unnecessary medications, too expensive medications, too expensive procedures, unproven diagnosis, etc…

    • John Somers

      FITST off, THAT CANNOT and WILL NOT happen and everyone with 2 brain cells knows that. There has to be a plan ready to take over Healthcare IN PLACE at the same time 1 goes out and 1 goes in.

  • Richard Knack

    The (un)Afordable Care Act SHOULD be repealed. Nobody should be FORCED to buy health insurance if they don’t want to or simply can’t afford it (and Medicaid is supposed to be for the ones who can’t afford it), nor should they pay a punitive fine (which OBozo’s a$$-licking judges think they can fool people into calling a “tax”). The ONLY part of the ACA that should be retained is the part that says insurance companies can’t reject people with pre-existing conditions, since those are some of the people who need insurance coverage the most.

  • Patriot47

    REPEAL AACA.

  • Susan Short

    The GOP should undo everything that King Odumbo has done! He has done so much harm to this country, and the American people finally woke up to that. That is why Trump was elected, to undo what Odumbo has done, and do some things for the good of the country, and its true American citizens!

  • David in MA

    If illegal immigrants are removed and only verifiable US citizens can apply I have wondered for some time why allowing medical coverage under Medicare to citizens who are processed under income based qualification would not be affordable and less expensive to all concerned.
    All I can currently see is the government taking over another section of the capitol environment and into a socialist system which will not work as has been proven many times.

  • AL

    If you knock on my door I will say WELCOME OR NO YOU ARE NOT WELCOME. If you then try to break in BANG YOU ARE DEAD

  • 1baronrichsnot1

    Finally! This ACA dream is a nightmare! The democrat party is so detached from reality that they keep asking, and replace it with what? Something better you delusional azzzes!!! Shumer, pelosi, Bo, hillary, shiela, etc. are so delusional that they believe this is a workable deal, Many many counties have no options at all, there is only one, and you have to choose it! They either offer it or not, Why in hell would we want the fathers of this nightmare to give advice? An obvious delusional bunch of misfits and commies who believe as long as the gov’t is in control, we are in good hands? We should never let them speak of this piece of garbage as a healthcare plan, it isn’t, has nothing to do with healthcare or saving lives, it is all about power, their power over all illegals, the poor, the incapable, the ones who can’t take care of themselves, depend on gov’t for all their needs, and they breed like flies! If you are able to work and don’t, then you don’t eat!! That is the way it has always been, hunters and gatherers, if you don’t hunt or gather, you don’t eat!! I owe this group nothing! I’m surely not going to listen to Shumer, Pelosi, Bo, Hillary, or the rest of this commie group for advice of any kind!! You get what you pay for, if free, then you owe your soul to these madmen and women of the defunct democrat party!!

  • Swampfox1965

    “The rules would protect any bills aimed at repealing the ACA from
    another rule aimed at preventing an increase in government spending.
    Reason being – a repeal of the law, absent a coherent replacement, would
    indeed mean an increase in spending. This is because the ACA saves
    billions of dollars by reducing the amount of federal Medicare payments
    to hospitals.”

    That is true, but it would also restore to realistic levels the ridiculously low payments that precipitated the mass exodus of doctors and the rise in the number of clinics that no longer accept Medicare.

  • AmericanBelle1

    Democrats are lauding the fact that 20 million are now insured under Obamacare. What they don’t mention is most of the insured were stripped of their policies and forced to buy the crap known as ACA; the rest were thrown into Medicare or Medicaid (most are on medicaid). Go to any state/city and there has been an INCREASE in ER visits. Why? If everyone’s insured now? Because the deductibles are so high, no one can afford it! I had a gold-plated insurance plan where I paid about $60/mo. I had no deductible, my co-pay was $10 for dr visit and $5 for drugs. All testing, hospitalizations, surgeries, were paid for! Then my policy was stripped from my and replaced with the ACA that costs close to $700/month, with a $5,000 deductible, and co-pays are $60 dr visit and $50 drugs. A few months back I cracked my ribs and couldn’t breathe, so I went to the drugstore and bought a wrap to wear. Why? Because the co-pay for the ER was $50 and then I would have had to pay the entire bill for the xrays and any other services out of pocket. And Democrats want to keep this crap! Of course they do, because they have their special gold plated plans like I used to…only they weren’t forced to give theirs up for crap!

    And WHY does Congress have to have a substitute plan ready on the table? That’s socialism which is no different than this Obamacare crap! Open the market up, let the insurance companies start preparing all the numerous types of programs/plans so they can get back in the market and make some money! State-to-state competition will keep the prices down and we can buy WHAT we want, and not forced to buy for someone else’s needs/care!

    Insurance companies have known this was DEFINITELY going to happen on Nov. 8; shame on them if they haven’t already started pulling together plans to offer. They’ve lost billions and are ready to get back on the horse and make a buck!

    PISS ON KENYACOON MUZZY CAREs-less, SHIT CAN IT . And EVERYTHING ELSE this ILLEGAL FRAUD TREASONOUS KENYA MUZZY PORCH MONKEY DID . Then JAIL KENYACOON MUZZY BARRY

  • Dannie Poe

    At this point every US Citizen knows Obamacare has failed to produce the results it was intended to. Anything is a improvement. What Congress should do is to structure new medical coverage so it can not be viewed as a mandatory tax. Also it should not make coverage mandatory and eliminate the 30 hour work provision. Why? Because employers get around this provision by hiring employees as part time labor. We all know that this nation can not function correctly under a part time employment structure. If the Middle-class hopes to survive in the US the government must try to close all the loopholes of avoiding paying benefits with part time labor.

  • Mr Obvious

    cheaper to give welfare to pre existing condition people make insurance purchasing across state lines legal to promote fair competition and get government out of the business of taking our money and spending for us they’re politicians are not businessmen people are stronger when they take care of themselves rather than thinking that Uncle Sam is Santa Clause general operation of any government should be kept at 10% with all citizens paying 10% no deductions we’ve allowed our government to strip us of our fruits of labor and let them dole our own money back out to us after squandering, stealing, buying votes, and power with our money. no punkeduation needed just common sense

    I AM SICK AND TIRE OF HEARING ABOUT THIS “ODUMBO ELEPHANT EARS ACA” it is so full shit and people will die!!! “THAT IS WTF THEY WANT”!!!!

  • Defend America

    When Obama care first started I want to the Doctor. Everything was a mess and my insurance was cancelled do to non payment ( which was an error ) they charged me $25.00 , bill paid in full. Three months later I had to go back to the Doctor by this time my insurance was corrected and in full force. Since I actually did have insurance 3 months prior I was billed for an additional $85.00.

    No insurance bill $25.00. With insurance bill $ 110.00.
    That’s how great our insurance is.

  • David Ridgway

    GET RID OF THAT CRAP! And call it, “TrumpCare”. The name Obama MUST be off of that. I’m sick of 8 years of hearing that fools name.

  • Motorhead

    Obolacare should be repealed on day one! The 20 million that are on it…don’t pay for it! They didn’t vote for it and don’t work for it! AND THEY CAN AS HELL SURE DIDN’T VOTE FOR TRUMP for it! …It is designed as a political gimme…get rid of it…it only attracts more illegals and more people that don’t want to work! The best plan to afford health insurance is a job! We voted to get rid of it…DO IT! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE 82ND AIRBORNE!

  • 32eagle

    Obamacare is communism -you refuse it you get penalties-well now it is time for the thousands of pages of propaganda to hit the burning barrel !!!

  • Dennis

    Replace Obamacare with a simple plan to be able to use your insurance anywhere in the world and let the competition of the insurance companies deal with lowering prices to be competitive.
