Just What the Dr. Ordered: Sen. Rand Paul details ObamaCare replacement,

by
January 16, 2017

Rand PaulKentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday previewed his ObamaCare replacement plan — in an apparent effort to take the lead in the growing GOP effort to simultaneously repeal and replace the 2010 health care law.

Paul, who was a 2016 presidential candidate, said the bill that he and other congressional Republicans have crafted attempts to “insure the most amount of people, give access to the most amount of people, at the least amount of cost.”

Paul, a physician, has emerged in recent weeks as a leader in the repeal-replace effort, amid Republican concerns that fulfilling campaign vows to dismantle ObamaCare at the start of the 115th Congress could leave tens of millions of Americans uninsured.

  • The Redhawk says:

    Well So much baout the LIES and Hysteria by the (D) fubar lemmings like the CLOWN of the Senate CHUCKIE, the FREAK Franken, Patty Murray , the Lunatic from Oregon in need of Valium and the rest of those Deranged and lying LUNATICS that the GOP has NO PLANS… Their LIES like POST TUrtles do not work anymore and MSM better take notice

  • snowyriver says:

    Wait a minute… Please show me where in our Constitution it says that the federal government will control health care. Actually it says nothing of the kind.. It does say that all not mentioned in the Constitution belongs to the people.

    1. maxx says:

      You are correct. The only two authorized activities afforded the federal government by the Constitution was 1, maintain a standing army for the protection of the citizens and 2. collect tax revenue. That’s it. Everything else they now have their fingers in was created illegally by Congress which has totally forgotten they are supposed to be our representatives with regard to the federal government. And the Tenth Amendment defines exactly what the federal government can and can’t do and it has been violated certainly since 1863 when Lincoln committed the first act of presidential treason.

  • justinwachin says:

    Dr. Paul is right. Offer a commonsense replacement that can be voted on at the same time Obamacare is repealed.

    The Republicans have a chance to show America they have better ideas. Health care is a good place to show such.

  • Jean Langford M. says:

    REPEAL..REPLACE..MOVE ON….A SOCIALIST ATTEMPT AT INSLAVING THE MASSES…FINES FOR “NOT” PARTICIPATING?….WHAT FREEDOM OF CHOICE? TOTAL BS.

  • Leslie Woodhull says:

    It’s NOT going to leave “tens of millions uninsured”!!! Talk about “FALSE NEWS”! OBOZO-THE-CLOWN-CARE IS ALREADY FAILING!!! IT’S IMPLODING!! IF WE DON’T REPEAL AND REPLACE IT THOSE SAME TENS OF MILLIONS WILL STILL BE UNINSURED!! Actually, OBOZOCARE IS FONG EXACTLY WHAT OBOZO THE CLOWN DESIGNED IT TO DO SO THAT HE COULD TAKE OVER THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY IN THIS COUNTRY AND MAKE IT A SINGLE PAYER SYSTEM LIKE CANADA’S. The funny thing is, CANADIANS COME TO THE US FOR THEIR HEALTH CARE IF THEY CAN. So we MUST replace it with a GOOD, AFFORDABLE HEALTH INSURANCE. IF WE KEEP WHAT WE HAVE NO ONE WILL BE INSURED BECAUSE NO INSURANCE COMPANY WILL BE PART OF THE “UNAFFORDABLE CARE.ACT”!!

    1. MyRoseHasTHORNS says:

      agree with most EXCEPT replace it with “GOOD, AFFORDABLE HEALTH INSURANCE”

      I prefer replacing it with GOOD AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE!

      Insurance NOT required, but available to those who want. I would only want a low cost catastrophic care policy as I and my family normally spend less per year going to the Dr THAN the ACA plans monthly cost!

  • maxx says:

    The Repuklicans have had 8 years to get ready for this. They should have been planning for a replacement program all that time. Now it seems that they are just starting to scramble for something to use. This sounds just like those GOP jackasses that even though none claim to have signed on for the ACA where all too happy to just let it devastate 1/6 of the economy. Where were their attempts to defund it? Many, including Rino Ryan promised to do just that but as per his usual rhetoric, he did nothing because he is a closet liberal.

    1. Leslie Woodhull says:

      Oh believe me, WE’RE READY AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK! THIS PLAN HAS BEEN READY FOR 3 YEARS.

      1. maxx says:

        I sincerely hope you are right. But the Repuklican Party never had me and probably never will due to all the betrayals they pulled especially in the past 8 years. I vote conservative and most times it’s for a (R) but just as many times I am disappointed. Way too many Rinos in that org. If they were truly conservative they would clean out their own house but they don’t.

    2. LJL says:

      You’re probably referring to some of the rhino’s in Washington but I’m not a fan of the way you’re trying to state your case. We didn’t vote for it, we certainly weren’t happy to have it devastate our economy and why not hang this albatross around the necks of the people who shoved it down our throats? Why is this being treated like we created it and have to clean up the mess?
      The Dem’s want you to think the whole house of cards will come crashing down but it won’t. Insurance company’s probably can’t wait to get back in business and the free market will handle the rest. I’m sure we will have it taken care of in short order

      1. maxx says:

        I’m not arguing that it should be repealed I’m simply saying the Republicans have been bitching for 8 years and now that the time is here they might not have a workable solution ready. They had years to sit down and come up with a plan that should have been thoroughly thought out and be ready to implement. Based on all the flack flying around it doesn’t sound like they did that. Maybe they do have something but that will be a surprise to me. An yes it is the GOP Rinos I am talking about. Particularly Paul Ryan.

  • bobnstuff says:

    Let’s see. Dr. Paul will let the insurance company go back to selling feel good insurance that covers nothing, He’s going to let small groups pool for insurance rates which they can do already and he hasn’t figured out what to do about the medicare and medicaid expansion. Sounds like a plan to me.

    1. maxx says:

      ObamaCare is the “feel good insurance” that covers nothing for those paying premiums that are at least 100% higher than they had before. Deductibles in the rage of $4000 – $7000 means they are paying for everything except for maybe “catastrophic” claims. Don’t know about you but I’m, lucky to get an annual physical for a co-pay amount only.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        You know you might do better in your argument if you had your fact even close to right. You obviously you haven’t used insurance since there is no co-pay on you annual physical under the ACA. Also the deductible is your stop loss not what you must pay before anything is covered. In most cases you are looking at a 80% to 20% co-pay till you reach your deductible or a twenty dollar per visit to your GP and thirty dollar for specialists. ER visits have a $500 co-pay. I would also be surprised if your premiums when up that much with that high a co-pay. You see I went to the market place and look at the costs. It turned out that my employer was giving me no savings over just buying may insurance on the market place at full price. I guess you don’t understand how insurance works.

        1. LJL says:

          Dude, I don’t know what you’re reading but I work in the insurance industry and everything’s applied to deductible until you reach it. In most cases a family of 3 is paying nearly a thousand bucks a month with an $8000 deductible. Stop loss is after the deductible and co-insurance amounts have been met, then you are 100% covered. There are preventative services that are covered and you can certainly pay more per month to have lower co-pays and deductibles but why pay more for less? Put down the crack pipe and read it again.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            I spend a lot on medical bills and have for a long time. Before the ACA I paid $800 per month for insurance and after the ACA I paid $800 per month for a little bit better coverage. Every year I make my deductible so I do know how it works. I was paying around 23% of my income for healthcare before the ACA.

          2. LJL says:

            Don’t kid yourself or try to kid anyone else. Everyone was hit with an increase even if they don’t see it in their payment every month. My insurance payment through my employer hasn’t changed but I had a $3000 deductible before the ACA; now its $6000 because of increased deductibles and out of pocket expenses. That enabled my employer to keep the payments lower. Thanks ACA. And working in the industry I see the same thing happening to everyone else who is paying for coverage with little return. Pay for your coverage but don’t get sick because you won’t be able to afford rest. And if you think it didn’t touch you then you either didn’t read your policy or you’re lying.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            I work for one of the largest retailers in the world and I didn’t have any increase in my costs and in fact I had a cost decrease so I change my co-pay to a smaller amount. Every year before the ACA I had a price increase but the first year I didn’t I would have had a 5% increase had I kept my insurance throw work but I’m now on Medicare. My wife has health issues so I’m very much aware of the cost of healthcare. I know for a fact that I’m saving money on healthcare.

        2. maxx says:

          Sorry genius. I don’t have ACA and I pay co-pays for everything including prescriptions. Maybe you need to check what Medicare is all about. LCL (next post) is saying exactly what I am saying. Could it be you are one of those “subsidized” freeloaders?

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Sorry but you do have the ACA, that’s why your insurance company can only keep 20% of the money you give them as administration fees. Anything over that they must give back. It also keep you form losing your insurance if you get sick and make a claim. Much of the ACA has nothing to do with the market place or insuring the uninsured. As far as checking what medicare is about just did since had to sign up for it blast month.

          2. maxx says:

            Are you for real? In one post you claim you have ACA and are not paying co-pays because they are not part of ACA. In a later post you say you are on Medicare. Which is it? Medicare is not part of ACA. If you are on standard Medicare and I don’t know of any other kind you should be paying a standard co-pay amount. If you are not who is your providing company. I would like some of that too.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            Don’t you understand everyone has the ACA. It effects all insurance in the country, no matter how you get it. The market place only effected about 15% and in my area the coverage is good and the prices fair. I had company insurance when the act went into effect and my cost dropped because my company gave me my prescription coverage as part of the plan instead of having to pay extra. then moved to the market place and save money and I didn’t need to work full time to keep my insurance. Now I’m on Medicare and paying about $142 per month total. Inn all those moves my co-pay has been $20 per visit and $30 for specialists. The ER is a $500 co-pay. I’m still working out just what Medicares going to be like since I have had it for only 17 days. In Pittsburgh we have UPMC and they own the hospitals and the doctors offices. It cost my wife and I just under $800 per month. Before the ACA I was paying just under $800 per month through my employer.

    2. MyRoseHasTHORNS says:

      WRONG! Men NOW won’t need obstetric care, elderly won’t need birth control coverage and people can actually choose an affordable plan AND be able to afford to see a doctor.

      Maybe we’ll even get our Doctors and plans back BUT I sincerely doubt that… My plan (NOT Insurance) went up 85% and my Dr moved across the country.

      They can keep my Dr but I want my money back!

  • Shane says:

    Obamacare is a massive wealth redistributing program taking money from White and Asians, and giving it to Latinos and Blacks.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      You do know that before the ACA we still had medicaid that covered the welfare people. They had better insurance then those who paid for it. The ACA wasn’t for those poor people, it was for everyone else.

    2. joe s says:

      Wait can you say that ?? Damn right you can!

    3. Phil Schipsi says:

      From the makers to the takers.

  • conservmrs says:

    And they (democrats) will STILL say we have no plan!!! Repeat a lie often enough!!!!
    NEVER vote fir a Democrat again! When will we ever begin to grow weary of the CHAOS that Democrats Cause???????

    1. maxx says:

      All of the insurance companies that were put out of the health insurance business by Ovomit could resurrect their former policies within a matter of months because they all simply archived the computer software they were using. All they need is for Trump to stop enforcing the ACA and allow these companies to sell health plans again. With that in place only the people that were running to the ER’s for everything would be affected for a while. In fact hospitals have reported that their ER’s are still serving as many as before ObamaCare because these folk don’t want to pay any co-pays or be bothered by deductibles. ObamaCare was never about health it was always about wealth redistribution and nothing else.

      1. Retired says:

        All you need to do is look at how much money they give to the political parties.

    2. Steve says:

      Its whats happening now though its taken a long time. The fight is going on as we speak. Go Trump! Go GOP!

  • willr3 says:

    Almost anything is better than the AHCA. My wife has been dropped 2 years in a row. Now they want to issue a new policy that’s 400% higher in premium, with a $6,000 deductible. She’s 50 with no real health problems, Do the math. It’s cheaper just to pay out of pocket to go the the Dr. even with the illegal fine the IRS may impose.

    1. maxx says:

      I believe the very first action Trump will take it so abolish the mandate by ordering the IRS to stop any and all enforcement. After all Oblowhard ordered many agencies not to enforce any law Obutthead didn’t like, like our current immigration laws.

      1. The Redhawk says:

        TRUMP took care of most of OBLOWME Bad IDEAS already ….and it is just the beginning that’ll drive the Idiots of the (D) klan to become HYSTERICAL

    2. Retired says:

      The insurance industry needs their tails snipped. Insurance created this mess as well as Hospitals. Take away the Non profit from over 50% of the hospitals and you will see a reduction of waste. You can go to a private MRI at half the cost as in a hospital , why is that ??

      1. The Redhawk says:

        The Insurance Companies via their and Pharma LObbyists, FREAK Ezekiel Emmnauel and Gruber the Lying Academia idiot WROTE the bHOZOCARE IMPLODING FIASCO……and the GOP has a SOLUTION at hand!
