I find myself increasingly ambivalent about the fate of the RyanCare bill. I don

“Repeal and Replace”......
The repeal part isn’t too difficult but the replace part is rather complex, certainly more than a bunch of lawyers can navigate through. Get some people from the real world health care system working together on it, they might get someplace. Good things DO take time.
When it is simple, everyone understands.
But ... you peasants are not as smart as us ... it is not that simple; this is complex.
Only we are smart enough.
The complex bill is fill of Govt control and power.
The simple bill is easy for the citizens to tell if the congressmen are lying, and easy to hold them accountable.
Pretty much the same for all congressional bills, too.
Why did we need to fix a rainbow unicorn to begin with?
And why are we now fixing what somebody else was trying to fix? Why are we installing a different color unicorn?
Why do we need this unicorn?
What was the problem to being with? Was there a problem? It wasn’t broken so what was there to fix? And why is the government overlord getting involved?
Where they really interested in fixing anything? Or was it really just an unicorn for controlling the peasants? There was never a regard to human health in those 2000+ pages. The peasants were just no different from pigs in a farm - not worth saving.
Because lots of these congressman and senators stand to lose lots and lots of $$$$$$$.
Funny how things change when there's a chance you may be hung with the consequences where before there was a snowballs chance it would pass.
The hard part is paying for all the bribes they took from the parties interested in the replacement.
He, and they, was elected in large part to repeal Obamacare. Not to replace it, just to repeal it.
The Left’s tactic is defining the narrative as requiring a replacement, and absolutely ANY replacement will be reviled & attacked as proof of Right-wing incompetence. We’ll never hear the end of it until the Left is back in power and hammered the GOP in to oblivion.
We, the MAGA voters, don’t want a replacement. We want full repeal of ACA, full stop.
Don’t let the Left and Center goad us into a replacement just so the Left can beat us up with it. Repeal ACA, end the prohibition on interstate commerce in health coverage (insanely stupid that’s in place), fix medical tort law, address “preexisting conditions” so insurers can’t drop someone so easily, and encourage the market to develop plan options to cover all needs.
Repeal is difficult because they can’t pass with just a majority vote.
Replace IS NOT THE GOVERNMENT’S BUSINESS.
Our system is so convoluted by design that to unravel the gordian knot of obamacare requires passage of multiple bills by both the house and senate. The democrats are sworn to obstruct and oppose and filibuster at every turn.
If Ryan thinks he can get something past these buffoons, more power to him. Conservative nay sayers will have NO repeal or replace - ever. They are not counting votes - only stomping their feet and snorting disapproval. Nothing gets done this way whether they understand it or not.
Saying you won the election and have the right to your version of repeal and replace is like the three year old driving the car. Have to wonder how many dollars were spent scaring republicans to vote no just to stop the repeal. Making loud noises about who won the election is red meat for the left - they love it when republicans cry.
Why would Republicans want to repeal Obamacare and risk losing lobbyist cash and control over an ever growing and powerful bureaucracy?
Why would Republicans want to repeal Obamacare and risk losing votes of the entitled takers who now outnumber the makers?
This is demonstrative that Speaker Ryan has no real ideas, except those borrowed from the GOP chair.
Speaker Ryan is, and has never been, a real get things done person, except when he is out hunting ... or was for show, too?
He has demonstrated that “government is not the problem, nor the solution, but the status quo”.
“Replace IS NOT THE GOVERNMENTS BUSINESS.”........
The entire fiasco should never have been the Government’s Business in the first place. It’s time to get outside vendors to design a workable solution, which they would do in less than half the time politicians would take.
Come on folks...relax! Trump has ensured us RyanCare is going to be a “beautiful thing!” Pfft!
Step #1 - end the filibuster rule
Step #2 - end the Byrd rule
It should all be part of draining the swamp. The problem is Congress is part of that swamp & there are too many apologists for those RINOs.
Great plan. Looks a lot like this one: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/3537140/posts?page=7#7
Yes it is obviously.
The last House Speaker hit the nail on the head:
Republicans never have and still don't agree on health care.
It was easy when they didn't feel pressured to pass something.(favorite option =do nothing)
Furthermore, Trump promised the 'replace' will cover every one, even (pay for) those who cant afford to pay for it themselves.
Add it all up and there is no solution.
They need to repeal Obamacare and then try to fix some problems in the insurance industry by free market solutions.
I think Trump is giving Ryan the rope to hang himself.
