ObamaCare repeal bill narrowly clears key House hurdle

The embattled Republican proposal to repeal and replace ObamaCare narrowly cleared a key hurdle Thursday morning, as the House Budget Committee approved the package over the objections of three GOP members.

The 19-17 vote sends the American Health Care Act to the House Rules Committee, with GOP leaders hoping to take up the bill in the full House next week.

There are 22 Republicans and 14 Democrats on the Budget Committee. The three Republican defections came from Reps. Dave Brat of Virginia, Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Gary Palmer of Alabama.

All Democrats on the committee voted against it.

“This is Robin Hood in reverse, but far worse,” Kentucky Rep. John Yarmuth, the committee’s top Democrat, said ahead of the vote.

    I’m concerned that many claim this is Obamacare 2.0. We don’t need to remodel Obamacare. We need to replace it with a system which gets the government out of health care and allows competition among providers in a free market system.

    Democrats have one quality, only one, a one track mind; i.e., doing whats best for themselves.

    Looking for volunteers. Which of you right-wing Putin Puppet lovers want to be first to lose your Health Care and accept Paul Ryan’s voucher so you can wipe your butt. The Republicons are going to give you “ACCESS” to Health Care. BIG DEAL! You have “ACCESS” to buy a Ferrari today. You won’t be able to afford either one. Ryan’s trying to sell you a PIG IN A POKE, so WISE UP FOLKS!!!

      Don’t like “no hand out for you”? Get a job and start paying your way instead of letting others support your sorry a$$

    No matter what a democrat says about anything in regards to governing it should be ignored out of hand. The democrat party is totally corrupt to the core. The only agenda they have is to regain power even if they have to destroy our nation in the process.

      These Rino’s are just a corrupt as the Democrats. This Rinocare bill is no better if not worse than Obamacare. The promise was to repeal all of Obamacare not repair it.
      The only agenda the Rino’s have is do what they want not what they were elected to do.

    Thanks for the fake news, Yarmuth. The CBO was way off with their estimates of Ovomitcare costs and participation rates. Their inflated numbers reflect the number of people who can opt out of the demorat’s crippled socialized medicine plan, not who will be left high and dry. Hidden within the CBO report is the telling message: “Most of the reductions in coverage would stem from repealing the penalty for not having health insurance, the CBO estimates, because people would just drop their insurance plans.” The CBO has a history of releasing misinformation about Obamacare.
    In 2014, it stopped its year-to-year scoring of the effects of the legislation because it said the task was “impossible.” Well, the CBO certainly found it possible to release an incredibly misleading report based on legislation that no longer exists and assumptions that are not realistic.
