I read an article a few months back about how the ACA was basically the same as a Republican health care proposal from the Reagan years. And it proposed that the reason Republicans hate it so much is that it is what they want, but the Democrats get the credit.
Honestly, that’s what Republicans should do. The ACA was a Heritage Foundation plan that was originally put together as the Republican answer to calls for universal healthcare/single payer. The people of Kansas absolutely loved the ACA by double digit numbers according to polls. But they hated ‘Obamacare’ and voted…
Add your own! And talk about whatever.
I present, the GOP’s new “Affordable Care Action!” or “Make Care Affordable Again!”, or maybe just simply “Nobama Care”.
You’re missing the true hero here: Paul Ryan arguing that the CBO numbers are misleading because the majority of people who would lose coverage would lose it because they chose to.
I voted against the bill before I was actually against the bill, all of this of course coming before I voted for the bill after I said I would voted against a slightly different version of the bill.
Rand Paul is going to the WH to get his arm twisted this afternoon, and a bunch of the others are going to meet with some of the arm twisters from the Senate at Pence’s house tonight for dinner.
All I know is that the Senator Cassidy, from our diehard proTrump redneck red state put out messaging this morning saying he was now undecided on the bill and asking for constituent input.
Well, besides the fact he fundamentally opposes all subsidies, always, the Essential Medical Benefits continue to, on some level, exist. Although waivers would be easy to access, the libertarians don’t want the goverment telling insurers what actually qualified as a valid insurance product. They really want a world…
First, they have to pass the motion to bring it to the floor...and GOP leadership’s in trouble there. Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson’s saying he won’t even vote for that. Add him to Rand Paul and Nevada’s Sen. Heller, and the GOP’s already down at least 1. The GOP Death Panel Act will free up a 100-200 billion $ for…
It leaves in place the existing structure of Obamacare/ACA - that the government provides subsidies to families to help with premium costs. They want NO government subsidies. This bill strips funding from the ACA structure and Medicaid. They want the structures themselves to come down and for all insurance to be…
I don’t think it passes in current form based on 15 million uninsured during an election year. Most elections are decided by a few thousand votes. They have to make significant changes to pass it, and then it goes back to the House... That will take a lot of time to gather more and more bad publicity.
Today, we’ll learn about botnets and how microtargeting can maximize cookie sales.
“How did you get this badge?”
“I found mummy’s “daddy can’t satisfy me anymore” collection. It had women kissing each other on their no-no parts.”
Aquazurra’s attorneys beg to differ, citing a time she publicly declared that “There’s not a shoe I’m not intimately involved in designing.”
Yeah, I wonder about this too. The deposition is, I think, limited to facts relating to the suit, but given that there is some weirdness with her company, trademarks, and overseas manufacturing maybe something shady could come up? In this case, I can’t imagine this is anything too shady, more like sloppy oversight of…
It cannot be said enough: Follow the money.
It’s probably wishful thinking, but maybe through these smaller lawsuits of seemingly less importance is where they can catch Daughter-Wife in something small that is actually big. The GOP got to Lewinsky and the impeachment of Clinton because of a lie in the Paula Jones deposition. Maybe it’s the smaller cases where…
