Do you want truth or ear-tickling? For example, on Monday, Politico called Speaker Ryan’s failed American Health Care Act (AHCA) a bill to “repeal Obamacare”... But the truth is, AHCA (“ah-ka”) does not repeal the 2,700-page Affordable Care Act.
The House Freedom Caucus (HFC) has pushed for full repeal of Obamacare…until now. These Republicans want the Affordable Care Act (ACA) fully repealed. They opposed Speaker Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) and stopped two floor votes on AHCA (ah-ka).
Tomorrow is the seventh anniversary of Obamacare. It’s also the day GOP leadership will hold a vote on the controversial GOP leadership replacement bill –it’s not a repeal -- called the American Health Care Act (AHCA or “ah-ka”). It’s been called “Obamacare 2.0.”
Houston, we have a problem. Where is the REPEAL in the GOP ‘repeal and replace’ bill? Republicans have won three elections because they promised to repeal Obamacare. Nothing about the latest “repeal and replace” bill is a repeal of Obamacare. It’s essentially the Republican version of Obamacare.
If YOU were king or queen, what’s the one thing you’d change in health care? At a town hall meeting, one woman answered: “Why can’t it just be simple?” What do YOU say? Send your answer to email@example.com and I’ll share them in a coming eNews.
Americans ignore REAL ID at their peril. In 2005, Congress added REAL ID to a war appropriations bill in the middle of the night without public discussion. REAL ID is an unconstitutional power grab – a National ID card – that eliminates state’s rights and gives the federal government control over all citizen identification, movement, and access to goods and services – but only if state legislators agree to conform.
The tables have turned. On Friday night after President Trump’s inauguration, I read his Executive Order (EO) against the Affordable Care Act and smiled. It was his first shot across the bow. Read our statement to the media.
TODAY is our nationwide ‘Repeal it All’ call-in to Congress on Obamacare. Please call ASAP if you haven’t done so already.
Repeal of Obamacare is not a done deal. A few Republicans want flat-out repeal. Others a two- or three-year delay (which realistically means NO repeal). Some claim “repeal” that’s not repeal. For example, while in Washington, D.C. last week, I heard one Congressman support “repeal” but want to keep the law’s $3 trillion and spend it differently. That’s not repeal. One insider said many Members haven’t “gotten the message” of the election. True.
Trump picked a pro-life physician. Orthopedic surgeon Congressman Tom Price, M.D. will be the new Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. He’s been a member of the U.S. House for 12 years, where he chairs the House Budget Committee and a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, including its Subcommittee on Health.
