Repeal and Replace…..repeal and replace……the chants of the Right and of course few have any idea of what they protest…..
But we were promised that as soon as we elected Trump as the leader of the free world then everything would change around Obamacare…after a month of his constant Tweeting we may have an idea of what their dynamite plan will be…..
House Republicans want to get rid of the Affordable Care Act’s subsidies, Medicaid expansion, and individual mandate, according to a leaked draft of a bill to repeal ObamaCare. The bill, which was obtained by Politico, would give money to states to cover some people with pre-existing conditions and replace subsidies with tax credits based on age rather than income. As it stands, people under 30 would get a $2,000 tax credit, while people over 60 would get $4,000. Vox, which has an in-depth explanation of the bill, reports that sets up the possibility that tax credits would mostly benefit richer Americans, who are typically older. But insurance, as laid out in the bill, would overall be better for younger, healthier people than older people. And it would still be possible to refuse coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.
House Republicans plan to pay for their healthcare plan by restricting tax breaks on employer health plans. This is a version of ObamaCare’s “Cadillac tax,” which was opposed by businesses, unions—and Republicans. The draft bill is likely to change as it passes through various committees. Meanwhile, ObamaCare is more popular than it’s been in seven years. A survey released Friday shows 48% have a favorable view of the ACA compared to 42% with a negative view, US News reports. That’s a sizable turn around from December, when only 43% viewed it favorably and 46% viewed it negatively. According to USA Today, nearly 50% of people polled were worried a family member would lose coverage if the ACA is repealed.
There it is…..a possible plan to make health care available to the people of this country…..
I did not particularly like Obamacare either….but this is just too much crap in a can……..
All I can say is….enjoy your next illness it could be your last.
But there is a way for an adequate health plan and for Trump’s promises to be fulfilled…….
Cut the bureaucratic mess.
Make it great.
President Donald Trump put forth a good number of lofty promises on healthcare on the 2016 campaign trail. A new analysis released Tuesday reveals there’s only one way to achieve them: Enact a single-payer, Medicare-for-All system.
Or this article…..
Proposals floated by Republican leaders won’t achieve President Trump’s campaign promises of more coverage, better benefits, and lower costs, but a single-payer reform would, according to a commentary published today [Tuesday, Feb. 21] in Annals of Internal Medicine, one of the nation’s most prestigious and widely cited medical journals.
A solution for this issue is NOT rocket science…..the solution is a simple one if not controlled by insurance companies or big Pharma….but sense our country is run by lobbyists and morons…..it appears harder than it is…..
