While Donald Trump THINKS he has actually gotten rid of Obamacare?
Today’s vote did nothing except allow ed him and Republicans to boast that the did vote FOR a repeal…Something they have been inching for…for years…
An actual repeal involves BOTH HOUSES of Congress and his signature…
Oh,and…. By the way?
The US Senate now says it won’t even deal with the House bill
They are going to write their own…
For the Republican House members that voted to make Trump happy?
For the Republicans?
The Democrats ARE handed a wedge issue to beat on you…
“I have never seen political suicide in my life like I’m seeing today.”
— Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), quoted by the New York Times, on the GOP health care bill passing the House.
Enjoy your beer folks…
Obamacare isn’t over yet….
The working group has been meeting for weeks, said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, a member of the group.
“What we have to do is build a consensus among our conference and that is what the working group is designed to do,” Cornyn said. “To get to a compromise we can agree to and then present it to the larger conference.”
Cornyn said there is “really no deadline” for the group to produce a bill…..
To get some of the moderate House members votes?
The vote was 217 for to 213 against…
The Republicans added $8Billion for pre-existing conditions…
“The Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare does not allocate nearly enough money to protect people with pre-existing health conditions from potentially higher insurance premiums,” CNBC reports.
“The bill’s $23 billion in funding specifically for such people would cover just 110,000 Americans, according to the Avalere Health study released Thursday. That’s only 5 percent of the 2.2 million current enrollees in the individual insurance market with some type of pre-existing chronic condition.”
