Letter to the editor: GOP’s health care plan is shameful

They never give specific “attacks”.

Both the Senate and House versions of the repeal continue the path in this direction, though they will offer less public funding than Obamacare.

On Friday, Kentucky regulators announced rates for plans sold on the state’s exchange could increase as much as 34 percent next year.

With that vision in mind, it is no wonder that U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell chose not to hold a vote last week on the bill created to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act.

I do hope that everyone will take the time, now that the Senate has chose to give more time for review and discussion, to find out how the Republican plan is going to affect you and those you love.

I do have one problem with the media. McConnell’s spokesman declined to comment on Trump’s tweet.

Health Tradition, Mayo Clinic Health System’s insurance plan, will halt individual coverage December 31 and will not write small employer group health plans under the ACA’s Small Business Health Options Program next year, according to a news release.

Is this what America has become, lack of care for the poor, elderly and middle class and giddy for a large tax break for the top 2 percent of America?

The Indiana Republican Party got more than it bargained for this week when it put out a call on social media for people’s “Obamacare horror stories”. “This is a commitment that has been made to the American people and it can’t wait”.

We still don’t know who will ultimately prevail in the debate over the future of American health care: the Republicans who want to overhaul Obamacare, or the Democrats who want to keep it in place. The median income in Florida is less than $50,000 a year – and those on the lower end of the income spectrum would suffer disproportionate harm from the bill. His administration had the Midas Touch in reverse.

Feinstein said the fight against “their bad health care bill” is not over.

Exhausted of the gridlock in the Senate, Trump announced on Twitter on Friday he supports repealing Obamacare first and then passing new legislation to replace the ACA, a strategy many pundits, analysts and politicians have said in the past is too risky politically.

Slamming Obamacare is not my point here.

If you look back at the 1993 Republican Healthcare Plan – it mirrors President Obama’s. At least they were united. But like Short, Sasse said he would prefer to have a combined bill that repeals and replaces Obamacare at the same time. And what have you accomplished?

We could have gotten the same results if we had elected a congress of apes.

In a ideal world, government would just get out of health care. “We are getting very close”.

But that was almost seven years ago, a long time in a political realm in which things are given and then taken away in regular cycles.
