Obamacare repeal. AKA: 7 years and THIS is what you come up with?!?!
 
So, the House GOP released their version of the ACA.

As expected it's Obamacare-lite. Now with less money for the poor!

And how much is this going to cost?

Seriously, this is like a bill that was put together last minute. They had six to seven years to come up with a grand vision for healthcare. And all they did was cut a few things, add some tax credits, and of course fuck with women's health.

While it sucks to take a sit back attitude, that's all I'm going to do with the next four to eight years. The GOP are going to have to own this shit. A lot of people will suffer, potentially even myself depending on the policies. But this is what the GOP have been screaming for, and their supporters.

Maybe it's best they just rip the bandaid off, and we can all cross fingers that people open up to what a disaster most of these policies will be.

Trumpicans have never had a plan, they just didn't want a black man's name on their healthcare. They now pretty much want THAT plan but they want to claim responsibility for it.

BEAL 03-07-2017 11:56 AM

Maybe they pass it, and then add back in the parts that were removed......so it looks like they are saviors, and great lawmakers.

It's no surprise to say that with everything that trump does, it's pathetic! PATHETIC! I'll edit that to say that everything the GOP and trump does, it's pathetic!

what a smug piece of shit.

(CNN)A Republican lawmaker on Tuesday walked back his remarks earlier in the day that low-income Americans may have to prioritize purchasing health care coverage over gadgets such as iPhones under Republicans' Obamacare replacement plan.

The controversy began when House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day" that he wants low-income Americans to be able to have more access to health coverage.

"But access for lower income Americans doesn't equal coverage," Camerota said.

"Well, we're getting rid of the individual mandate. We're getting rid of those things that people said that they don't want," Chaffetz replied. "Americans have choices, and they've got to make a choice. So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care.

"They've got to make those decisions themselves," Chaffetz added.

Haha, yup. I mean, it's the same old argument against the poor.

Do they really need TVs??? Refrigerators???? A microwave oven??? That's way too fancy and rich for the poor.

The way they spin this, you would think the poor are living a life of luxury with all the possessions they own.

anitram 03-07-2017 12:53 PM

I for one hope that this is how they sell their Trumpcare. It will surely go over wonderfully with the public.

BVS 03-07-2017 12:58 PM

Trump will straighten him out; he's blue collar, he understands the working man's plight.

That made me so fucking angry.

My mother had cancer and just ONE of the drugs necessary to keep her immune system from crashing and burning cost $5,000 per dose. That's a whole mess of iPhones. Her chemotherapy required her to be hospitalized for 3 days, that's a fucking Apples store full of iPhones.

Thank god she had insurance, which was only because of Obamacare. Before the ACA, she had a horrible insurance plan and an HSA. After Obamacare, her employer was required to offer better insurance and that saved her from bankruptcy. It also allowed her to get much better care, than she would have gotten in her hometown. It sadly didn't save her life, but it extended it.

There will be people singing praises to this because it was put together by Republicans and doesn't have the word "Obama" anywhere in its name. They will sing it's praises until they get fucked over by it.

I have to have a biopsy at the end of this month. Let's hope it's negative because I certainly can't afford to have cancer. Damn me for being poor, right?

mama cass 03-07-2017 01:36 PM

mama cass 03-07-2017 01:38 PM
