House Republicans Unveil Bill To Repeal Obamacare


It would likely take insurance from millions, but conservatives are already protesting.

I'm reserving my opinion on this until I see the actual Bill that they are going to vote on ... also want to take time to read the entire Bill ... right now it stands at 143 pages ... a lot easier to read than the Obamacare Bill was ... which took me a better part of a day to read ... however, some of it went by quickly because a lot of it wasn't really written ... the Obamacare Bill had at least one paragraph on each page that said that the Secretary of Health and Human Services would have to determine something ... which means the Bill as voted on was only written to a degree ... Pelosi wasn't lying when she said they had to vote on it to see what was in it ... because it was incomplete at the time of the vote.

Like it or not, older citizens and the poor will take the brunt of it.  As reality sets it, one has to priorize their list of importance.  Those over 50 will pay 5x more than younger citizens. As their is no guarantee miliennials will not suffer any debilitating disorder, taking a bare bones policy might be a dangerous proposition.


All in all decisions has to be made across the dinner table. Unfortunately, something has to give. Sad to say...the best thing you can do for the poor is not to be one... This administration will not make differential allowance to provide health care for the poor.

I say again. This is crap. It took the Republicans 6 years, 11 months and 16 days to create this??? We are all doomed if that is an indication of their level of competency.

Millions Risk Losing Health Insurance in Republican Plan, Analysts Say


(NYT) Martha Brawley of Monroe, N.C., said she voted for President Trump in the hope he could make insurance more affordable. But on Tuesday, Ms. Brawley, 55, was feeling increasingly nervous based on what she had heard about the new plan from television news reports. She pays about $260 per month for a Blue Cross plan and receives a subsidy of $724 per month to cover the rest of her premium. Under the House plan, she would receive $3,500 a year in tax credits — $5,188 less than she gets under the Affordable Care Act. 

“I’m scared, I’ll tell you that right now, to think about not having insurance at my age,” said Ms. Brawley, who underwent a liver biopsy on Monday after her doctor found that she has an autoimmune liver disease. “If I didn’t have insurance, these doctors wouldn’t see me.”

If this goes through, the +50 crowd will take a huge hike in providing themself health insurance. That age also corelates with paying for their children's college education, providing assistance to their parents. Additionally, that age frame also offers tenuous employment layoff.  Try finding a job in your 50s-60s. Where are they going to find the funds to pay for the increase when their earning power is likely to take a down turn? Employers are not likely to hire older employees as health packages provided from employer will increase exponentially to cover their entire staff.   I understand  older citizens are more likely to incur illness. However targeting them for an increase lacks fore thought. 


Many who don't have children are required to pay into the education process although childless individuals don't utilize those benefits. The entire society are willing to take part in educating the populace to see the greater good. As comparsion...Although supplying older citizens with reasonable rates is far from fair to the milennial crowd who incurs less health issues...same can be said in looking at the greater good.  Like a childless person can foot the bill to educate children for the greater good, milennials can return in kind.
