House GOP Sends Obamacare Repeal back to your State

January 24, 2017

Two Republican senators on Monday unveiled one of the first ObamaCare replacement bills of the new Congress — a state-centric plan they admit is imperfect but describe as a tangible start to overhauling the 2010 health care law on a bipartisan basis.

“We recognize that our bill is not perfect,” said Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who introduced the 2017 Patient Freedom Act with Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy, a physician and fellow Republican.

“We need comprehensive legislation,” Collins continued. “It’s still a work in progress. … But if we don’t start putting specific legislation on the table that can be debated, refined, amended and enacted, then we will fail the American people.”

The senators introduced the bill amid a host of pending alternatives from fellow congressional Republicans, including from Georgia Rep. Tom Price, Trump’s pick to run the Department of Health and Human Services, and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, also a doctor.

Among the highlights of the plan are measures allowing states to continue to offer ObamaCare, urging “price transparency” on medical procedures, keeping existing subsidies and tax credits provided in the 2010 law and extending coverage to 30 million more uninsured Americans.

    Someone please show me where in our Constitution it says that Federal Government shall control health care.. Nowhere in our Constitution does it give the Federal Government that power.

    Congress should debate alternatives to Obamacare but they should begin a phase out of the Affordable Care Act immediately.

    If they don’t have the guts to actually repeal the Affordable Care Act they can remove the requirements that people purchase health insurance, allow insurance companies to offer plans that don’t meet the Obamacare standard, allow plans to charge a higher rate for “adult” children on their parents’ plan, and phase out taxpayer subsidies. Those four actions will encourage most people to move away from Obamacare and back to private health care plans.

    With the plans that are beginning to be put forth we may see the type of debate which should have happened in 2009. The government’s goal should be to have free enterprise to compete for people’s health dollars. They can set basic rules to protect people and they can provide a government plan for those who are uninsurable due to pre-existing health problems.

    Obamacare was set up to destroy our healthcare system and give free loaders free care and it didn’t work, you can’t keep using other peoples money on BS that wasn’t designed to work anyway, just add to Obama’s debt and hurt America and it’s people! But hopefully Trump and team can get it back on track, it hurt my Ins. bad!!
