Trump to Senate: Stay in Washington and work on healthcare

Like what you're reading?

Some of those Republicans have realized the impact on their constituents of repealing Obamacare outright. Instead of using the money that they have set aside to educate people about the Affordable Care Act, tell them how to enroll, tell them deadlines, basically serve as a general knowledge base for the public on the issue, instead of doing that, Tom Price and his Health and Human Services Department, on the advice of the Trump administration, are instead putting out propaganda videos with people claiming to have been harmed by the Affordable Care Act.

This is Senate Republicans' first attempt at a repeal bill. "They are going to need to call hospice because their control [of Congress] is not long for this world", Club For Growth President David McIntosh said.

Do we need more 'cops' on the road?

This bill doesn't solve those concerns.

I don't deny that the current version of the Senate bill is far from ideal from a conservative point of view, but it is far better than it was before, and it is light-years better than the status quo. Rep. Bruce Poliquin voted for a House repeal bill, which the Congressional Budget Office said would leave 23 million more Americans uninsured than if the act stayed in place. Of course he was and still remains a stalwart #NeverTrumper, a respected conservative commentator who continues to pen valid material yet can't seem to get off of his fixation with Trump's unorthodox White House behavior.

Actually, Congress has been trying for seven years to find a solution in health care. "It was easy for moderate Republicans to grandstand and regurgitate fiery political rhetoric when they knew repeal efforts would go nowhere".

What's next: Maybe a failed vote? "Thus, eliminating that penalty would cause some employers to not offer health insurance", the CBO said.

Near the end of the 2017 enrollment period, the first ever decline in sign-ups occurred after the Trump administration pulled ads and suspended social media alerts for the final sign up. Some are slightly hopeful that the GOP can pass the bill with amendments, but it will be an uphill battle. The opinions expressed in this commentary are his own.

What happens next: Nada.

If congressional Republicans are unable to notch major accomplishments, including health care, GOP candidates running to challenge Democrats might start using the language of the president. Not all, I mean some you know try to get away with as little as they can.

"If [Trump] keeps it up with raising this healthcare crap, I'm going to be dead, because I won't be able to afford anything", Norma said. The ORRA was introduced on Wednesday. It's critical to considering whether our national obligation is to make sure health care is available to all people.

The Senate bill faltered because no one made the public case for the Republican legislation. Waiting for all the details ahead of time, Majority Whip John Cornyn told reporters, is a "luxury we don't have".

The Senate bill would end this process by replacing this open-ended federal payment to the states with a per capita cap, based on the average annual spending and the number of enrollees in the categories of Medicaid recipients served by the program. The right believed, through a combination of lies, demagoguery, and ridiculous predictions, it could convince much of the nation's mainstream that "Obamacare" would shred the fabric of American life.

The Trump administration produced a misleading report to boost its health bill.

Kentucky had nearly 500,000 who gained health care coverage via Obamacare with the increased eligibility for Medicaid, which covers the low-income families that are prevalent in Kentucky. At present, however, health care is still the main event.

Make tax credits for premiums less generous. And we're going to create a situation where the insurance companies are not going to be willing to play. "If things calm down in D.C. and if we don't see further changes, then Pennsylvania's market really is stabilizing".

Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots said the reluctance on the part of a large handful of senators represents the politics Trump ran against. "This ill-advised strategy could have profound cost implications for anyone seeking coverage through the marketplaces, but particularly patients being treated with expensive specialty drugs".

Trump's governing style is undoubtedly taking shape; he's clearly content to use the bully pulpit to advocate action and to foist culpability on those in Congress who fail to deliver it.
