  • A Guide To Repealing ObamaCare, Hidden In Plain Site

    04/10/2017 3:24:30 AM PDT · by IBD editorial writer · 16 replies
    Health Care: As Republicans stumble around in search of a way to repeal ObamaCare, they should look to the states for answers. After all, several of them had to find solutions when their ObamaCare-like reforms started to fail. The GOP has apparently decided that, despite the problems it causes, any ObamaCare repeal plan must keep the core feature of ObamaCare — its protections for those with pre-existing conditions. Are they not aware that several states have already gone through this exercise before, and that many ended up abandoning these very protections after their insurance markets started to implode? In the...
  • Senator Mitt Romney?

    04/06/2017 2:22:12 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 48 replies
    Republican leaders and high-powered donors in Utah are waging a quiet but concerted campaign to convince 83-year-old incumbent Senator Orrin Hatch not to seek reelection next year—and now, they may have found a successor. Mitt Romney, the one-time presidential nominee and leading Trump critic, is exploring a run for Hatch’s Senate seat. According to six sources familiar with the situation, Romney has spent recent weeks actively discussing a potential 2018 Senate bid with a range of high-level Republicans in both Utah and Washington, and has privately signaled a growing interest in the idea. Romney, though, has made clear he would...

    Bad move by Trump. Ryan and the globalist big government GOPe RINOs are the problem not the Freedom Caucus. Trump is supposed to be draining the swamp by now, not swimming in it. Put the interest of American citizens first! Freedom not socialism and tyranny!! Good grief! Dump Obamacare already! Should have been done on day one and we’d be way on down the road to draining the swamp by now! We the people have been demanding a full repeal for seven long years and that's the position Trump took with his original health care goal at the beginning of...

    The GOP has had 7 years to work on the repeal of Obamacare and now that they have full control, they still can’t seem to get anything done. We want Obamacare repealed now!

The GOP House caucus will meet at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday to discuss its path forward, NBC News reported. A vote on the legislation is still possible on Friday, NBC said. The...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 3/22/2017 | John Merline
    If the Republican's ObamaCare replacement plan ends up looking an awful lot like ObamaCare, here's one reason why: Prominent conservatives have already conceded defeat. In his latest column, Charles Krauthammer declared that "For all its catastrophic flaws, ObamaCare changed expectations. Does any Republican propose returning to a time when you can be denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition?" Another well-known conservative commentator, George Will, wrote almost exactly the same thing in his column that just posted. "It is unknowable whether Barack Obama produced an American consensus in favor of a government obligation to guarantee universal access to health...

    The American Thinker ^ | 03/22/17 | Ed Straker
    President Trump, who promised to totally repeal Obamacare, is threatening Republicans with political retribution if they do not support the House bill which would leave the worst elements of Obamacare intact. The House bill does a few good things -- it eliminates the individual mandate to buy insurance, and relieves employers of the costly burden of providing insurance for their workers. But, mostly, the worst parts of Obamacare stay in effect. ****SNIP**** And President Trump is threatening any Republican who votes against it. President Trump on Tuesday turned up the pressure on recalcitrant Republicans to support a sweeping bill to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/19/17 | David M. Drucker
    House Speaker Paul Ryan's ambitious tax overhaul relies on an import tax concept originally developed by a Berkeley economist who once advised Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Alan J. Auerbach is the director of the Robert D. Burch Center for Tax Policy and Public Finance at the University of California, Berkeley. He served as an economic counselor to Kerry during his 2004 presidential campaign. He also happens to be known as the godfather of "border adjustability," the linchpin of the tax reform plan that Ryan, a conservative Wisconsin Republican, is attempting to sell to the White House and push through...

    Csting his ObamaCare replacement bill as the only chance to save America from a complete health-care collapse, Speaker Paul Ryan Sunday countered his conservative critics who say the bill fails to make good on Republicans' promise to repeal ObamaCare. "Understand the speaker’s plan doesn’t repeal ObamaCare," a member of the House Republicans' Freedom Caucus, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), said Sunday. "Even Charles Krauthammer said that, called it ObamaCare Lite, as you said earlier. It doesn’t bring down premiums and it doesn’t unite Republicans. So, why not do what we all voted for just 15 months ago, clean repeal, and then...

    “False lips are an abomination of the Lord, but those who work faithfully are His delight.” Proverbs 12:22 The lying being employed to preserve Obamacare has likely surpassed the degree of intensity of the Gang of Eight immigration bill when Republicans were trying to convince conservatives the bill was the opposite of what it actually did. At the time, they lied about the nature of the bill, its outcomes, its cause and effect, and the entire premise behind it. They used conservative talking points to describe something antithetical to what was actually in the bill while at the same time...

    DANA LOESCH: I think it's an insult. It's an insult to the American people and it's an insult to the Trump administration for Republicans, Congressional Republicans to deliver this bill to his desk. They are the ones who are endangering this new administration and I can't bold, italicized, underline that anymore. In 2015, Jim Jordan had a fantastic bill that went way further than anything that this bill is doing and it actually lowered prices instead of increasing prices, which is what this 'Obamacare 2.0' bill does and I don't know why, for the life of me, they will not...

    I’m also hoping that President Trump can see through the old political “bait and switch” that is pushing him to approve the present DC Solution to Obamacare I like to refer to Obamacare as ObamaScare. This seems to reflect the true meaning of the term, especially for those who resist/rebel against the [forced] use of Obamacare. But there is more to this today than previously. There is talk of repealing Obamacare. There is also talk of “repairing,” “Replacing,” and “Changing Obamacare” so, apparently, it will be more acceptable to the voter.

    The Patriot Post ^ | 03/10/17 | Terrence Jeffrey
    The Affordable Care Act was based on government coercion of individuals and redistribution of wealth. So, too, is the Republican plan to “replace” it. “An applicable individual shall for each month beginning after 2013 ensure that the individual, and any dependent of the individual who is an applicable individual, is covered under minimum essential coverage for such month,” said Obamacare. This section of the law was clinically entitled: “Requirement to Maintain Minimum Essential Coverage.” It was not a choice the government offered individuals. It was a command. It said the “individual shall.” If the “individual” did not comply with this...

    Had the United States House, Senate, Supreme Court and their staffs been directly affected by the landmark legislation, ObamaCare would have been something entirely different if it was implemented at all, but they basically exempted themselves and mandated the public deal with the monetary ramifications of high premiums, high (thus unusable) deductibles, and non-compliance penalties. Gutless Republicans now wish to repair a flawed piece of legislation they didn't create, we didn't ask for, and instead of keeping their promises to "repeal" ObamaCare; promises they made as far back as 2010 as a selling point to get the public to put...
