The MacArthur Amendment gets it right by guaranteeing Congress has to stay in the Obamacare exchange as long as such a thing exists.
For this healthy couple over 60 years old, there is no substantive difference between Obamacare and the AHCA. In many respects, we may be worse off financially.
Thursday’s amendment doesn’t resemble the model cited by pool proponents, undermines federalism, relies on price controls, and requires far more taxpayer funding.
Real federalism in health care is state control over the factors governing supply and demand of health care, not bits of control offered piecemeal by Washington bureaucrats.
Geraldo Rivera said a group of congressional Republicans committed ‘treason’ for opposing an extremely unpopular plan to replace Obamacare.
Whether tanking the American Health Care Act is ultimately viewed as a ‘deliverance’ will depend on whether lawmakers can learn the right lessons from an entirely predictable defeat.
The only way the Obamacare replacement bill could have turned out worse is if Republicans had actually passed it. Thank the House Freedom Caucus.
AHCA failure is a failure for the president, but it’s much more a failure for House leadership and Paul Ryan. They had seven years to prepare for this moment, and they failed to do so sufficiently.
The Republican health care bill would bring immediate pain for future gain—a recipe that promises to satisfy no one, just like Obamacare.
This type of ‘pass-it-to-find-out-what’s-in-it’ mentality birthed Obamacare, and is the reason the conservative base increasingly despises their party.
Republicans should stop shirking townhalls, supporting half measures, and diverting blame and pass the 2016 Obamacare repeal bill.
Is Obamacare Lite preferable to Obamacare? After years of GOP promises, this is the question conservatives will probably have to ask themselves.
