Democrats act to save ObamaCare from GOP repeal, Obama to Hill, ‘Day of Action’

by Joseph Weber |
January 1, 2017

President Obama’s trip next week to Capitol Hill to discuss ObamaCare is only the latest — and most visible — sign that Democrats are ready to fight Republicans’ plans to change the president’s signature health-care law as well as Medicaid and Medicare.

Obama will visit Wednesday with House and Senate Democrats, the day after the 115th Congress convenes and Republicans, who have the majority in both chambers, are expected to start repealing and replacing ObamaCare.

“Step one is the ObamaCare replacement legislation at the start of the year,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said a few weeks ago, as members closed out their 2016 session.

    It would be nice if the Republican House and Senate could have the repeal and replace legislation ready for President Trump to sign as soon as his hand comes off the Bible. There would be no better way to mark the end of President Obama’s reign of error than to sign such a bill in front of a watching world.

  • Buckeye conservative says:

    The libtard domocrats won’t be able to stop the revision of this terrible law. Still, there will be things that will have to be kept. It can’t be merely repealed but should be replaced and I think the Republicans can do it but it will take a couple years.

  • texexpatriate says:

    I will say this again: America’s Number One enemy, ahead of even Muslims, is the National Democratic Party. America’s worst terrorists are Democrats, and Obama is their leader.

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    As we plainly saw over the past 8 years, a minority party can raise hell with legislation the majority wants to pass and a majority party can be thwarted when a unified minority wants no/little change. With the majority of national voters supporting Obamacare by voting for Hillary Clinton there’s a strong case for amending but not repealing Affordable Care Act. Plus it’s a Republican State level program (Romneycare in MA) expanded to the national level, and there’s still, after nearly 8 years of bellyaching, no credible ‘replacement’ concept. The public that depends for their very lives on ACA, or insures their children to age 26, or approves better hospital care, or wants premiums to stop rising some day will never permit any minority faction of congress to simply repeal Obamacare.

    With control of the White House, House of Representatives and Senate there is no way democRats can to anything. But then there are those traitors (Rinos) in Congress to worry about. This is going to show where the rubber will meet the road. If ACA is not totally repealed then Congress needs to be abolished. The Repuklicans have now been given everything they claim they need to “do something” to stop the madness that has been the past 8 years and longer.

    Please do just that Democrats. Go ahead and dig your hole a little deeper won’t be long before the sides cave in on you and you are buried like the crap in the outhouse when it comes to overflowing.

    Make Trump greater than he already is.

      Tiger, You were a Nurse, and I’m betting that you never had to stand “Benjo duty” in your life! Burning the Benjo’s was always for those who ‘pissed-off the Gunny”!

        LOLOL true that but I sure got my face blown off by the screaming Sergeant who trained us in Boot Camp. LOLOL

    Two words for the Democrats trying to keep Obamacare: It was used by Dirty Harry to pass Obamacare, it can be used by Republicans to repeal Obamacare:

    1. maxx says:

      Absolutely. Except that Mitch McConnell (voted Rino of the year) seems to makes it his New Years resolution to take the N.O. off the table. He has made that announcement at the start of every new Congress.

      1. the whistler says:

        They say that consistency is the mark of excellence…more times than not I have seen it as the mark of an imbecile.

  • Peter Smith says:

    The DNC can fight all they want, the GOP has the votes in both houses and the President to make them law. And thanks to “Dirty Harry” Reid, the 60 vote majority is gone. Obama’s final legacy will simply be “the first mulato in the WH” and the “worst President in US history”.

  • Pete says:

    The incredible shrinking man is making another stab at relevance. 19 days & a few hours to go.

    1. the whistler says:

      The’ Incredible Shrinking’ man intends on being the ‘Loud Mouthed’ citizen…I trust that this new stature would now allow him the privilege of being tried for his crimes …just like any of us other ‘citizens’ …who are loud mouthed or otherwise!

  • Defend America says:

    Obama care is a disaster and it gets worse every year. It has 1 great quality and that is pre-existing conditions. Some say the other one is keeping your child on your policy until age 26 is good. The rest is disastrous.I have no problem with helping those who can not afford healthcare but at what extent is this help going to stop.

    We have very few choices for our insurance coverage. The prices have skyrocketed. Now Blue Cross Blue Shield says they will only cover you in your state. My insurance agent says that is nation wide in other words all insurance companies are doing that. They will only cover emergencies out of state. You do not get to keep your doctor are hospital. So would someone please tell me what is so good about this affordable Care act , that is not affordable?

    Dems do you really want to help Americans are destroy them?

    1. maxx says:

      The answer to your question to democRats is simple. They are socialists and want to destroy capitalism and freedom. Prior to ObamaCare I worked for a health insurance provider as a IT consultant. Those companies put out of business by ACA put hundreds of millions of dollars into their insurance policy software. I can tell you with all certainty that these companies did not throw that software away. It was archived and it can to resurrected as soon as the laws preventing them from selling policies is repealed. All they will need is the word “GO” to do that. They probably will need a few tweaks but the transition will be very quick. Plus there will probably be across state line selling which will increase price competition. Keep the faith that help is on the way.

      1. Defend America says:

        Thank you for your reply. I truly hope they can come up with an insurance that will work for all without costing Americans and arm and a leg.

    I’ve paid for my wife and my insurance for over 20 years. And we had great insurance before we were forced off of it because it was deemed that we didn’t have Maternity or Birth Control, we’re 60 btw.
    Our original insurance not only covered Dr. visits and prescriptions BEFORE we met our Deductible, and only cost $725/month (which I thought was high back then), I had tons of Doctors I could choose from.
    After only two years on liberal-NA Z1 insurance (OdumboCare), our cost went up 82% to $1,320/month!
    Now, next year our cost has gone up to $1,900/month! ! ! !
    (44% from last year alone, mine individually going up 56%)
    160% HIGHER than our original insurance!!!

    1. maxx says:

      That increase was so that Oblowhard could provide free insurance to his “homies”. ObamaCare was and is nothing more than the largest redistribution of wealth in American history. And redistribution of wealth IS front and center of the socialist / communist / progressive ideology.

        1. Askjrsk says:

          All those axes they mandated for hospitals, under OBAMA care.that they be OBAMA administration . Compliant ready for OBAMA CARE. prescription “amputate”.

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            Maybe this administration will be the first to try out these new axes!

      Well it is the agenda to break Americans make America weak and make us reliant on big government. Only a very strong leader can upset this victory. Donald Trump.

  • Irene Elizabeth Grooms says:

    1. Cleverfun says:

      It’s “time” to repeal OBAMA!

  • Webb says:

    The ACA was a Third Grade Mistake costing Trillions if left in place…Math!
    By Mandate fines, Subsides and OUR TAX DOLLAR…
    Repeal this Law as Promised…And set Government Overreach Right!
    Obamacare was one of the Worse Laws ever Passed…

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Community organizers don’t make good Presidents.

      1. Retired says:

        He was also worthless in the state of Ill.

    2. Retired says:

      The ACA was nothing more than a welfare program, the only thing good was the pre existence clause and you did not need 2700 pages for that. Plus Obama stole money from Medicare to add to Medicaid for his Illigel friends and Muslim Imports..
