What Will GOPcare Change?

Written by  Kemberlee Kaye

Obamacare, is that you?

Monday evening, House Republicans finally unveiled eight years of campaign promises in the making, The American Health Care Act.

Reviews are mixed but predictable — Democrats, hair ablaze, have morphed into screaming banshees claiming all the children will be health insurance-less.

* Meanwhile, most Republicans are calling the AHCA Obamacare-lite.

What I can say is this — there better be more “replace” in the legislative pipeline if Congressional Republicans plan to use this bill as proof of the long-awaited “repeal and replace” promise.

Because as it stands now:

To be clear, I’m not on the GIVE ME ALL THE REFORMS OR TAKE A HIKE train that derailed many-a-good reforms, but there’s little in the AHCA to get pumped about. If you were hoping for a bill that would move towards a market-based, patient-centered health insurance world, one where health insurance might even be disassociated from employment, join the Disappointment Club. Politically jaded welcome.

“If this bill passes, everybody would have to get their insurance either through government, their employer via tax subsidy, or be left to purchase government-designed health policies using federal subsidies,” writes Phillip Klein at the Washington Examiner.

This is a bill IN PROGRESS. Whatever happens, I think the REPLACE should come BEFORE REPEAL! Is that possible? It seems this bill was rushed a bit. Why not have the Republican Doctors (and invite Dem. doctors too) all meet with the Director of Health and figure this out.

This is NOT repeal!! It's repair!! Exactly what we voters said we didn't want!!! And here our pathetic politicians are again spitting in our faces!!! If this is what we can expect having the house,senate, and the presidency? Then we've been voting for liberals lying to us about their loyalties!!

Bob displays his ignorance with each passing post; this one is no different. Never anything positive to contribute; always a bunch of liberal Socialist rantings; general nonsense. First, this bill will never pass muster even if the House pushes it through. Senator Rand, Cruz, Rubio, etc., will not let it get through the Senate as it is. We must FIRST repeal Obamacare, and THEN replace it with a plan much better and affordable!

Bob...Where's my Psychotic meds....Waldman loves Communist control of our healthcare. Most rational people want private payer choice, competition and reasonable co-pays and deductibles like we had before Lying King Obama replaced it and said..."you can keep your Doctor, You can keep your plan and it'll be $2500 cheaper"..!

With nearly $20 trillion in debt, public funded healthcare is unsustainable. Any healthcare plan must be self supporting WITHOUT SUBSIDIES.

I personally believe that 0vomitcare should be left to implode under its own weight.

Put laws in place making competition be full and open across all statelines.

The 2 systems we have are already in sad shape financially. Fix them first. That is social security and medicare.

Government is not to FIX everything. Government needs to get out of the way.

I like this idea. It will give Americans a choice and competition should keep cost in check.

NO. I am one who believes we should each be responsible for ourself. You should not be responsible for paying for your neighbor(s).

Everyone has their balls in an up roar, and the bill has just started...it will change as it moves though congress, lets take a breath and take a look and see....

Haven't we taken a breath in every election since this law was forced on us. I voted in every election for those who promised to Repeal this only to hear excuses. my family cannot afford this and you should know that government never runs anything efficiently. They alway need more money.

Agreed...and the worst of it was, where does the government get off telling a free people what to buy or not buy?
