Open Request for Trump/GOP supporters:

Post by callmeslick » Wed Mar 08, 2017 10:25 am

Post into this thread any reason for the American citizenry to support an ACA 'replacement' that:
1. Covers 10-12 million less people.
2. Costs $60 billion per year more
3. Gives ME a tax break I didn't get before
4. gives a bonus to insurance execs
5. will likely put rural hospitals and some inner city hospitals out of business.

what a plan, lucky the only thing holding it up is a bunch of Republicans who simply wish to push the sick into pits to die unless they make $150 grand a year or more. :roll:

Seriously, you all had 8 years and these are the options you came up with?

From what I've been reading it will be D.O.A. Even some big gun repubes are balking at it.

so far, few of the Dems are even bothering to weigh in, content to watch the GOP base and elected officials savage one another.

The spin is already starting. Trump's White House is already starting to proactively trash the CBO in anticipation of a poor rating.

Here's the funny part. If the world turns upside down and the CBO actually gives it a good rating ... will the White House come out and retract everything it said in anticipation of a poor rating?

no way this thing adds up to the CBO, but that sort of backpedal is old hat for these folks.

Fats, why that brain-dead obvious solution isn't chosen by acclimation at this point speaks to how twisted our system has become.

It'll NEVER happen in the USA. The insurance companies would lose billions. And that sure as hell ain't gonna be allowed to happen.

actual exchange--

Tucker Carlson--"....you know, studies indicate that the counties that voted for you do FAR worse under these proposals"


Cheetolini--"I know......."

and a look at the budget proposal, which will be killed off by Congress, in large part, shows clearly that this administration is planning for major conflict. Nice.
