Dems suddenly scrambling to come up with ObamaCare fix

by Brooke Singman
August 3, 2017

After fighting Republicans tooth-and-nail for years on their plans to repeal and replace ObamaCare, Democrats have in a matter of days started touting a slew of proposals aimed at improving the ailing health care system.

The Democrats’ scramble to tackle the problem comes after Senate Republicans endured a high-profile failure on their so-called ‘skinny repeal’ replacement bill last week, leaving unclear whether Republicans can ever get the votes to go it alone on health care.

Given the difficulty in locking down GOP support, some Republicans have welcomed the prospect of bipartisan talks. At the same time, some Democratic ideas — such as those that swell the deficit — may find little support on the Republican side.

But the proposals could reflect a party, like the GOP, concerned about public backlash if ObamaCare’s problems escalate into the 2018 midterm election year — amid President Trump’s warnings of a looming collapse. Insurers already are seeking big premium hikes for next year, upping the pressure on Congress to make changes.

    Seven Years of ObamaCare…
    Democrats vilified The Insurance Companies while pushing ObamaCare In 2009 and 2010…Then Billions Paid to the Insurance Companies to get them on Board? It’s stated in 2017-$7 Billion, in 2018-$10 Billion and by 2027-$16 Billion dollars…
    All The while not addressing the Cost Of healthcare, by Doctors, Hospitals and Drug companies These three entities can Charge at Will Prices, that we cannot shop around for lower cost…
    Congress, Democrat Or Republican will never change when it comes to Spending Our Tax dollar, the $20 Trillion N/D is Prove…
    Repeal Obamacare…for the Poor and Low Income, give them a insurance card and lets move on..We are Paying The Cost Anyway!

    We have a huge problem with those spending democrats and rhino establishment republicans. These people had eight years to correct the problems and they did not. ie: millions of dollars spent on the health care website that is unsafe to use. Get the government out of our healthcare. Let the system implode on them. Still spending lots of money, but these rhinos will have to address the complete repeal.

  • Carl Lewis says:

    The pinch is on, and the Dems will face the music having to own up to the ACA as their offspring much like the proverbial bastard at the family reunion.
    With RINOS like John McCain throwing roadblocks in the GOP’s path, a vote from a handful of Dems could help push a replace Bill through the Senate.

      From his current actions, from covering up that POWs were still stuck in Vietnam and Laos, way back to betraying his fellow prisoners, DcCain has been a servant of the Hanoi communists.

      “McCain was instrumental in amending the Missing Service Personnel Act, which had been strengthened in 1995 by POW advocates to include criminal penalties, saying: “Any government official who knowingly and willfully withholds from the file of a missing person any information relating to the disappearance or whereabouts and status of a missing person shall be fined as provided in Title 18 or imprisoned not more than one year or both.” A year later, in a closed House-Senate conference on an unrelated military bill, McCain, at the behest of the Pentagon, attached a crippling amendment to the act, stripping out its only enforcement teeth, the criminal penalties, and reducing the obligations of commanders in the field to speedily search for missing men and to report the incidents to the Pentagon.”

        Why haven’t the good people of Arizona seen this phony as he really is. The so-called mantle of “Maverick” doesn’t give him license to act the bloody fool. Maybe this life threatening glioblastoma has been there for awhile, and contributed to his goofy behaviour. God blessed us by letting a better evil into the presidency in ’08. Who knows, if he had won we might all be learning Chinese or Russian, or both.

  • Rob says:

    The DNC is a criminal organization, nothing less, nothing more!

  • Humble Servant says:

    I don’t intend this to be mean but if the DNC fight to keep Obama Care alive to this point is an affirmation they believe this to be in the American’s best interest then let it play out. They have worked their hardest to make it impossible to change then leave it and let it fail around their necks. I believe the public will feel the pain shortly as the insurance industry pulls out who made the mess with healthcare. The GOP can say we tried but the DNC did not want the change so now it has failed and do you now want us to try and fix it? I think the answer would then be, OK. I have said many times since the beginning if they want to fight so hard for this turd make sure you hang it on them.

  • Rob says:

    Everything they do is deceitful and the people see it! That Obamacare fiasco was designed to harm America, to break America, financially! So now miss “pass it so we can see what’s in it” Pelosi, is now faced with Obamacare self-destruction! That’s the best way to handle it, allow it to fail on its own, and it will, then the Democrats own it! Everything Obama did was out of hatred for America!

  • Peter Smith says:

    Don’t fall for this trojan horse offer. The Democrats don’t want to help the GOP, EVER! Let the ACA fall under it’s own weight, it won’t be long. During this time, remove all subsidies for the insurance providers and the Congressmen and their staffs. They DESERVE to live under the law they forced on all Americans.
    Tell the Democrats the healthcare issue will be fixed but only after the ACA is REPEALED in it’s entirety, nothing can be left of the legislation.
    Force them to the table, it’s the only way. Tell the Democrats in no uncertain terms that saving Obamacare is not an option. Not coming to the table after repeal is an option, but only if they want to see the end of the DNC forever.

        Your best friends mother-in-law? Really? There is no way retirement home internet porn is that lucrative, NO WAY! SS doesn’t pay enough, you’re a liar, BITCH!

        Internet porn is not a career. But I’m glad she has a backup of just the average street walking prostitute …..

  • James Wherry says:

    “Spend more money” is likely to be on the agenda, but the problem is NOT that we are spending enough money – we are spending too much money on Medicare.

  • Barrustio says:

    So it took them 8 years to get off their ass.

  • Jigsaw says:

    Things democrats do never are the best for taxpayers. They think of us as slaves and treat us that way. Rino’s are in the same boat. Money is what matters most. They don’t want to improve anything except the size of their bank account.

    1. American Me says:

      Sounds like they might be getting feedback from their supporters They must be struggling with the cost too.Maybe they are getting fed up too.Obamacare must be repealed and a new much better law put in place.I still remember the day Crazy Nancy was on TV saying we have to pass it to find out what’s in it.That told me and should have told everyone that they were hiding something,and that was an under statement.Remember Obama saying you will save $2500 and if you like your plan and your doctor you can keep them.All LIES

      1. James Wherry says:

        Not enough “feedback,” I’m sorry to say. While I feel let down by the GOP, I can’t help but asking where all the Tea Partiers from 2010 are, now? When the Democrats were trying to stack town hall meetings with yelling, outraged welfare recipients, where were the people who delivered the House and Senate and Presidency to the GOP?

        1. Jigsaw says:

          They are probably at home trying to figure out what bill not to pay so they can put gas in their car to go to these meetings. Democrats are bussed in by Soro’s and crew along with anti-Trump signs.

      2. Jigsaw says:

        Yes I remember that. I guess that whatever little bit of money the taxpayers have left is burning a hole in their pockets and they want to figure out how to get the rest of it to pay for something even more stupid.

  • Sandra Holzbach says:

    Forget Obamacare. The American people demand that the Government get out of the Healthcare Industry and leave the decisions up to the American people. I urge that everyone on the senate side who voted against repealing Obamacare be replaced by strong family oriented conservatives who will work for the American People and not for themselves. Protect Medicare and Medicaid for the elderly and the disabled but leave the decisions of our healthcare to us and don’t penalize us when the premiums are too high for us to carry healthcare.

  • TexRancher says:

    The election showed that Americans don’t want this piece of CRAP known as ObamaCare! Why do the democrats keep pushing it? For power and control over us! It has nothing to do with real HealthCare! Further, they tried to sell it to us with lies! “You can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor, you premiums will drop $2,500 a year” and then there’s those deductibles; Outrageous! And they still want to wrap this fraud around our necks!

    1. Bob says:

      ” Why do the democrats keep pushing it?” Because they just don’t care. It’s all about power and who has it. They demand that all agree with them with out debate, then claim “tolerance”. They don’t care how many lies and backroom deals had to be made to get this Obamination through, they just want to claim that they “stopped the Republicans”. Sadly, they are better at this obstructionism then the current “leadership” of the Republicans are at leading.
