Can somebody please explain what this

Posted: Apr 20, 2017

Apparently they're going to take another stab at the insurance but I don't really get what this means.


I don't think anyone will understand until it's finalized. - It's very confusing.

Basically it just Obamacare redux with pre-existing coverage and no cap on - payouts and all the other parts of

Obamacare that have sent premiums skyrocketing. I don't see much difference.

They are still wrongly ignoring that the States have - never expressed constitutionally

delegated to the feds the specific power to regulate, tax and spend in the name of INTRAstate healthcare.

The very least these Republicans should be doing is front-ending their proposed Obamacare “repeal” with a proposed RINOcare amendment to the Constitution to the states for ratification.

At least it allows for states to experiment. That's a start. - It allows the states the waive

some of the protections.

In order to waive the protections, states would have to fulfill two provisions: prove that the waiver would bring down costs and either join a federal high-risk pool or establish their own.
I like protections - I doubt

I doubt waiving protections would be good for any human needing health care.
Even if the states can prove health care costs would be lower? - Truthhurts

You realize it would probably be pretty hard to waive those protections with the way healthcare has exploded in costs.

I don't think many states could prove that they can have lower healthcare costs.
Get ready for state taxes to go up to pay for this. - In my state, they already have a

I don't see where the Dems proposed an amendment - Truthhurts

to the Constitution for Obamacare. Did they? Of course not! So, why should the Republicans have to do it?

Consider these facts: FDR had the trifecta during his entire term (almost - 16 years). LBJ had the trifecta

during his entire term. The last time before George W. that Republicans had the trifecta was during Dwight Eisenhower’s presidency (and even that was only for a brief 2-year period).

Add to that the fact that we haven’t had a true constitutionalist president since Calvin Coolidge. I agree that Republicans have been a do-nothing bunch, but that’s only been a good excuse since 1995. They kept telling us that they can't do anything because they didn't have the Congress. We gave then that. Then the excuse was the Senate, they have that. Now the presidency. They keep making excuses.

I think the majority of the GOP are establishment politicians who WANT big government and like Obamacare or Ryancare (look at the leader, Ryan). Polticians are for the most part the same, they like power. The more dependent people are on govt, they more power they have.

This is why Trump was elected, he's not establishment (whether you like him or not). I hope he's not being too influenced by Ryan.

I agree with you 100%! - anonon

The government has become a bunch of power-grabbing high schoolers! There is never any compromise in order to do what is right for the country anymore. It's just my side against your side and forget everybody else in the country. As long as our side wins, it doesn't matter what that means for everyone else. No matter what side of the aisle they are sitting on, they are not listening to the people at all. I don't want to be dependent on the government because we see how quickly things can change depending on which side is in charge. Now that some people who really needed to be on healthcare have it, the change is coming and they are either going to not be able to afford it or what they need will no longer be covered. I don't think it is fair to punish people who are sick. My feeling is it is the insurance companies who are the culprits. The top brass take home millions in bonuses every year and that is why they are squawking about ACA not being cost effective for them! They should be the focus of the anger.

It's just a rearrangement of Obamacare. - nm

Obviously, parties are given to hyperbole, but the reality according to the Center [for] Tax Policy is that 90 percent of the benefits in this plan go to families making $700,000 a year or more, the one percent. That is a fiscal reality." He demanded ...
