INTERESTING MOVE BY SEN. DAINES TO GET DEMOCRATS ON RECORD FOR GOVERNMENT RUN SINGLE PAYER …
There actually is a Republican senator with a brain. Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) is proposing an amendment to the Republican healthcare bill that would implement a government-run, single-payer insurance system in the United States. This is what Barack Obama and Democrats wanted all along. Obamacare was set up to fail, as it has, and destroy the private healthcare insurance industry so that single payer would take over. Thanks to some ignorant, selfish, cowardice and gutless RINO’s, it actually looks like that is where we are headed. Sen. Steve Daines looks to put Democrats on record for single payer. However, Democrats will probably vote against it as they could care less whether they are on record or not. This has all become one big game at the expende of the American people.
Take a good listen to what Obama had in store all along and the Republicans were played like a fiddle. Long before he ever became president, he was a proponent of government run single payer. Because the VA, Medicaid and Medicare are so well run and financially solvent. This is the biggest lie ever perpetrated on the American people as Democrats told We the People we could keep our insurance plans, doctors and hospitals if we likes them. It was all an effort to get to single payer and it appears that most of the GOP could care less.
Sen. Steve Daines is proposing an amendment to the Republican healthcare bill that would implement a government-run, single-payer insurance system in the U.S.
The Montana Republican doesn’t support single-payer healthcare. But in a bit of political gamesmanship often seen in Congress, Daines wants to force vulnerable Democratic senators running for re-election in red states in 2018 to take a position on the liberal healthcare policy, which is gaining currency on the Left.
The Senate is considering legislation to partially repeal Obamacare. The floor debate process is poised to enter the amendment phase, during which senators can offer hundreds of proposals to alter the underlying bill. Daines’ single-payer amendment is a carbon copy of one offered in the House by Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich.
The Conyers bill, with more than 100 Democratic cosponsors, proposes to create a program the legislation describes as “Medicare for All.” According to the bill’s language, “all individuals residing in the United States would be covered.” To pay for the program, Conyers proposes raising income taxes on the top 5 percent of earners, plus hiking taxes on payroll and self-imployment income, unearned income, and stock and bond transactions.
Democrats who support the bill might vote against the amendment anyway on the grounds that it’s a political stunt. Republicans continue to struggle in their effort to pass an Obamacare repeal bill. Their legislation, being considered under special rules that prevent it from being filibustered, can only lose two Republicans and still advance.
IF OBAMACARE IS SO DAMN GOOD, WHY WOULD 15 MILLION OPT OUT?
Why in the HELL did the GOP controlled US Senate not outright repeal Obamacare, do they not know basic math or listen to the CBO projections and score cards? I thought the CBO was their Bible? The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) believes that 15 million Americans would opt out of Obamacare if the individual mandate were to be repealed and Americans were no longer required to purchase the Obamacare-mandated levels of healthcare. Now imagine what would happen if the business mandate was repealed as well. Of course without those two money generating premium mandates, Obamacare would collapse on itself.
If the individual mandate were to be repealed and Americans were no longer required to purchase the Obamacare-mandated levels of health insurance coverage, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) believes that 15 million Americans would no longer purchase such coverage.
Some, including Jonathan Gruber, believe that the CBO is overestimating the impact of repealing the mandate. Gruber was one of the architects of the healthcare law.
Politically, the impact of these projections is significant since the individual mandate has long been the most unpopular part of Obamacare. Recent polling shows that two-thirds of Americans would like to see it repealed. For many, the idea of the government forcing anybody to buy anything is in conflict with America’s commitment to individual freedom.
Additionally, if the CBO projections are correct, there are 15 million Americans who would directly benefit from the repeal. Typically, when people are directly impacted by a law, their support or opposition is more intense than that of more casual observers.
On the other hand, if Gruber is correct, the Republican plans to repeal and replace Obamacare would have a much smaller impact than the CBO expects.
If the individual mandate were to be repealed, many Americans might be interested in purchasing less comprehensive and less expensive coverage. The CBO has offered no estimates of how many might take advantage of such alternatives. It is currently illegal for insurance companies to offer less expensive plans offering less comprehensive coverage.
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA AND VOTE OUT ANY HOUSE REP OR SENATOR WHO DOES NOT RID US OF THIS DISASTROUS FRAUD OF A HEALTHCARE LAW!!!
JUDAS GOP: Previously Senate Passed Identical Obamacare Repeal Measures Dies in U.S.Senate as 6 Republicans Flip-Flop Their Vote
JUDAS GOP STABS AMERICANS IN THE BACK AS THEY GO AGAINST THE VERY THING THAT THEY SAID THEY WOULD GO TO GET ELECTED. DON’T THINK WE WILL FORGET THIS ONE …
The U.S. Senators voted 55-45 against an amendment from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) that would repeal the Affordable Care Act and give lawmakers two years to come up with a replacement. Seven lying, turncoat GOP Senators voted against the exact same repeal measure that they had previously voted for when Barack Obama was presiddnt. The joke GOP senators who need to be primary challenged and run out of office are as follows: Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), Susan Collins (Maine), Dean Heller (Nev.), John McCain (Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski. In RINO Susan Collins defense, she actually never previously voted for the repeal but needs to go anyhow or switch parties.
Previous Senate vote … clean repeal of Obamacare.
For the past 7 years we were told by Republicans, if you give us the House, we will repeal Obamacare. And we did. Then they said, if you give us the Senate, we will repeal Obamacare. And we did. Then they said if you elect us a Republican president who will sign the repeal law, we will repeal Obamacare. And we did. They were given all they asked for and they went back on their words and failed to repeal as 7 Senators voted to keep it. YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS IN ELECTIONS TO COME.
Senators on Wednesday rejected a key proposal that would repeal much of ObamaCare, despite intense pressure from conservatives.
Senators voted 55-45 against an amendment from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) that would repeal the Affordable Care Act and give lawmakers two years to come up with a replacement.
GOP Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), Susan Collins (Maine), Dean Heller (Nev.), John McCain (Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Rob Portman (Ohio) joined all Democrats and independents in voting no.
It was the second healthcare plan rejected after the Senate voted down a separate repeal-and-replace amendment on Tuesday night.
Three GOP senators had already announced they wouldn’t support repeal-only. Alexander, the chairman of the Senate’s health committee, predicted he didn’t “think there are 40 votes to repeal” without a replacement.
“For more than seven years, Republicans successfully campaigned on ObamaCare repeal. … Grassroots conservative activists are not going to accept excuses if Republicans fail to pass a bill that they have passed once before,” the group said in a notice to members.
Obamacare Premiums to Rise Almost 25% and Some Consumers Down to One Insurer … What Happened to the $2500 Premium Reduction?
HOW THAT “UNAFFORDABLE” AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT WORKING OUT FOR YOU AMERICA?
As stated at Town Hall, just days after Barack Obama gave Obamacare a ringing endorsement, it is now confirmed that consumers will be feeling the wrath of Obamacare premiums rising as much as 25%. As reported by the AP, as per the administration, Obamacare premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer. According to CNN, the average premium increase masks wide variation among the states. In Arizona, the benchmark plan’s average premium will increase 116% in 2017. Remember this when you go to the polls America. I can’t say we did not warn you and tell you this from day one. You were lied to America by the current president, do we really want 4 more years of Democrat lies?
Remember when this liar told you Obamacare would reduce your premiums up to $2500 a year?
Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday. That’s sure to stoke another “Obamacare” controversy days before a presidential election.
Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.
Moreover, about 1 in 5 consumers will only have plans from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles.
“Consumers will be faced this year with not only big premium increases but also with a declining number of insurers participating, and that will lead to a tumultuous open enrollment period,” said Larry Levitt, who tracks the health care law for the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. [...]
In some states, the premium increases are striking. In Arizona, unsubsidized premiums for a hypothetical 27-year-old buying a benchmark “second-lowest cost silver plan” will jump by 116 percent, from $196 to $422, according to the administration report. [...]
Dwindling choice is another issue.
The total number of HealthCare.gov insurers will drop from 232 this year to 167 in 2017, a loss of 28 percent. (Insurers are counted multiple times if they offer coverage in more than one state. So Aetna, for example, would count once in each state that it participated in.)
Bill Clinton Trashes Obamacare At Event, Calls It “Crazy System” … “Doesn’t Work,” “Doesn’t Make Any Sense” … “Killing Small Business People”
Former President Bill Clinton finally tells the truth about Obamacare at event and trashes it calling it a “crazy system” that “doesn’t work,” and “doesn’t make any sense” and is “killing the small business people”. OUCH. Yes, that came from Bill Clinton’s, Hillary’s husband, not the vast right wing conspiracy. So is he saying this to get us to a single payer healthcare system? Because Bubba Clinton is saying even Obamacare doesn’t work. Even though we have been telling you from the outset it was never intended to work. Michelle Malkin opines, did Bill Clinton just give another reason, a a very good one, to vote against his wife.
Former President Bill Clinton attacked President Barack Obama’s signature health care legislation Monday, calling it a “crazy system” that “doesn’t make any sense” during a Michigan campaign event for Hillary.
“It doesn’t many any sense. The insurance model doesn’t work here,” Clinton said about the government-run marketplaces Obamacare set up. Clinton said that Obamacare “works fine” for people with “modest” incomes or who are eligible for government subsidies, or Medicare. But he added that, “the people that are getting killed in this deal are small business people and individuals who make just a little too much to get any of these subsidies.”
Bill Clinton: ObamaCare Insurance Model “Doesn’t Work,” “Doesn’t Make Any Sense”
Bill Clinton: ObamaCare Is Killing Small Business People
Bill Clinton: Obamacare “Crazy System,” People End Up W/ “Premiums Doubled And Coverage Cut In Half”
So why did Obama and the Democrats change the healthcare to system to Obamacare?
