House Speaker Ryan announced:
Here is what is important for us all to understand: Obamacare is not simply stuck in some kind of status quo. It is getting worse by the day, and it will keep getting worse unless we act.
We need to rescue people from this collapsing law, and we need to replace it with a true patient-centered system. One that gives every American access to quality, affordable coverage.
That means more choices and lower costs. It means real protections and peace of mind. And it means returning your care to your control. Patients and doctors should be making the big decisions—not government bureaucrats.
Step by step, this is what our plan to repeal and replace Obamacare will do. We look forward to making progress in the coming weeks and keeping our promise to the American people.
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) joined the speaker in reaffirming their commitment to repealing and replacing Obamacare.
House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) said, “We’re going to continue to work through this through the district work period next week. And as we come back in the weeks ahead we’re going to be moving forward with legislation.”
Republicans leaders hope to soon provide a credible alternative to Obamacare. House congressional committees including Ways and Means, as well as Energy and Commerce, will start the markup of the bill after the president’s day recess next week.
The Republican proposal would include health savings accounts, high-risk pools for sick people, and states receiving greater control over health care. The plan also includes tax credits for individuals to buy health insurance dependent on age and family size rather than Obamacare’s income basis.
The Republican plan lowers Medicaid back to each states’ traditional match rate. The proposal says, “This ensures continuity of care and coverage for low-income adults, but does not reward states that expanded Medicaid under Obamacare and allows individuals to cycle off the program into other coverage sources naturally.”
REPEAL the entire ocare bill.
DO NOT REPACE IT WITH ANY GOVERMENT AGENCY INVOLVEMENT !!!!!
America does not need government mandated health care ever
No i really don't want to see it , What i want is for them to Repeal it all every line every word .I want the Gov. out of my health care period.
Repeal it ALL NOW.
If you want everyone on Board with repealing Obamacare you simply have to give them all a deadline to repeal and replace or you put them all on it,,,that means everyone in America will be on it from Nancy Pelosi to Ashley Judd,,,and once you threaten the rich and elite with Obamacare it will go away in a hurry,,,Just like if you made everyone In the government retire on Social security it would be fixed in a hurry,,,The best way to fix something is to make everyone use it,,,,and once it is fixed we need to go after those who Tailored this bill,,,Someone needs to be tried for treason ,,,and thats exactly what Obamacare is,,,,
They should all be on it to begin with....
REPEAL that ENTIRE MONSTROSITY!!!!
Repeal this odious invention of the Obama-Insane Administration. It was about Control, and forcing Americans into a Program which was detriment to all. Hospitals, Doctors, Patients, all suffered under this planned seizure of the Public health. Privitize it, let the Market correct it's mistakes, introduce competition.
just pull the plug on the damn thing and bring in Free Market
"We need to rescue people from this collapsing law, and we need to replace it with a true patient-centered system. One that gives every American access to quality, affordable coverage. Then start by giving US the same hearth care coverage you in Congress have!!!!
That means more choices and lower costs. It means real protections and peace of mind. And it means returning your care to your control. Patients and doctors should be making the big decisions—not government bureaucrats."
Insurance companies will always look to the bottom line in every disiceion that they make regardless of what the doctor says.
What is good enough for the citizens, should be good enough for congress and all government employees.
