House Republicans Unveil Bullet Points for Obamacare Repeal

Image result for repeal obamacare nowHouse Republican leaders previewed parts of an Obamacare repeal bill at a Thursday press conference.

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.


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 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.

First, NOTHING in U.S. Constitution gives federal government any authority over health care. Nor do they have authority over health INSURANCE beyond inTERstate commerce, despite asinine decisions from the courts, which are, after all, not LAW, but OPINIONS ON LAW. Second, I doubt anyone can dispute that we are deeply divided on most things, nearly at polar opposites in what we want and believe. So, Third, why don't we do this BY THE CONSTITUTION? Let Congress draft an amendment to the Constitution that grants limited power over health care to our U.S. Congress. IF they can get it out of Congress, the States can decide the issue. When it fails to be ratified, there must be a law from Congress that says, simply, failure to amend the Constitution and give this power to congress puts legislation over payment on healthcare (perhaps exempting medicare for those unable to secure other options at this age) forever out of Confessional reach. Agree with other commentors, repeal not replace. OMB or CBO has declared that particular language renders PPACA repealable by simple majority, exempt from 60 vote requirement.
BTW, tho sorry for poor who might lose subsidized medical care, how many people who CURRENTLY PAY for insurance are effectively excluded from getting care due to high, impossible deductibles and premiums since Obamacare? Why can't the democrat socialists and the wealthy establish a fund where 100% goes to pay for healthcare for the needy?

What is good enough for the citizens, should be good enough for congress and all government employees.

BREAKING: White House Makes ANOTHER Move
Supporting Roy Moore … Liberals In PANIC !!

( – While the lamestream media has criticized President Donald Trump for his silence on the accusations surrounding Republican candidate Roy Moore, and also claimed that his silence is proof of his disapproval of the senatorial hopeful, insiders in the White House issued a second statement confirming their support.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney on Monday affirmed that the Trump administration’s stance on the issue is that Alabama voters should cast their vote for Judge Moore despite the allegations that he performed sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old in his 30s, the Hill reports.

“I don’t think it’s making any news to think that a Republican administration is going to want someone in the Senate who is going to vote for a Republican agenda and if they elect a Democrat to that office that’s not going to happen,” Mulvaney said during a segment of Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria.”

Previous support for Moore came from the White House when aide Kellyanne Conway told Alabama voters not to vote for the fake “conservative” Democrat Doug Jones, claiming a vote for him “will be a vote against tax cuts” on “Fox & Friends.” She added that the Democrat, despite his self-styled label, is “weak on crime, weak on borders,” all but implying that they should choose Moore instead.

Even the Crooked News Network is waking up and realizing that Trump did not, in fact, fall for their smear campaign against Moore:

“By refusing to intervene ahead of Alabama’s December 12 special election, Trump is rejecting Senate Republican leaders’ view that a Moore victory would bring disastrous consequences for the GOP’s brand and needs to be stopped at all costs.”

Initially when asked, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement that said the administration was holding back any judgement or endorsement, and trusted the people of Alabama to decide on the allegations facing Moore. But it’s become clear – and a relief to Trump-supporters in the state – that the president is going to welcome and support one of the only senators who will actually back his agenda.

Marc Short, legislative director, caving in to the pressure of badgering liberal reporters, suggested that Trump wasn’t campaigning for Moore because of doubts surrounding the candidate’s innocence.

“If he did not believe that the women’s accusations were credible he would be down campaigning for Roy Moore. He has not done that,” Short said. Clearly, Short had no idea what he was talking about at the time.

While the president has yet to officially endorse Moore, during a briefing with reporters on Monday, Sanders issued a new statement that resonated with tones of approval for the Alabama Republican, reports CNBC.

“The president wants people in the House and Senate who support his agenda,” Sanders said. Since there are absolutely no other candidates in the race who support the president’s agenda, this is obviously an endorsement for Moore. Trump wants people in his government who are true Republicans, not Democrats or RINOs, no matter what nasty rumors liberal slimeballs spread about them.
