Somebody call a doctor! New Obamacare repeal bill on life support

The tide is quickly turning against the new ObamaCare repeal legislation.

At least 21 Republicans have said they would vote no on the revised GOP healthcare bill negotiated by centrist Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.) and conservative Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.).

Those “no” votes include Reps. Patrick Meehan (Pa.), Ryan Costello (Pa.), Barbara Comstock (R-Va.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.) and John Katko (N.Y.), all centrists who had reservations about the previous ObamaCare repeal bill that was pulled from a floor vote last month because of a lack of GOP support.

On top of that, a trio of usually reliable Republicans — Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (Calif.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Mario Diaz-Balart (Fla.) — told the Hill that they were undecided on the new bill after saying they were yes votes on the earlier legislation.
“I’m absolutely undecided,” Diaz-Balart, a member of the GOP whip team, told The Hill. “I was a yes before, but there are a lot of red flags” with the revised bill.

    Our current group of politicians are as dysfunctional as the last 8 yrs. were. If the Democrats don’t care about the American people they will not do anything to change the Obamacare program. The Republicans want the perfect bill or they won’t vote it in. What happen to getting to a compromise that we can live with today and set a schedule to fix the underling things on a three month review.
    I know government is a clumsy elephant but someone decided to make themselves responsible for our health and started this mess. If you are not able to fix it properly give it back to the people and let them work with it. It would not take long for the medical industry to correct it’s problems and fix the absorbent pricing structure when we can no longer afford their services. You would see little clinics pop up driving the big systems to change.
    Make it work fare to all or get out…..

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Seven years of promises…
    Promised to repeal Obamacare entirely…To Date Nothing!
    Understanding Republicans can only repeal so much of Obamacare, due to the Senate on having a 52 vote but Repeal what can be done as promised…
    Lies, Misconception and Corruption Built ObamaCare…and interfered into our very Healthcare that as working Americans…We paid More and was Taxed More for Government Healthcare through Insurance Companies that has not worked…
    Another Government Is The Problem, Not The Solution!!

    There wasn’t anything wrong with what we had. Now for some history. The first thing Hitler did, was institute government run healthcare. Remember, Obarry care was brought you by DemonRATS!

      I guess you didn’t have any problem getting insurance and was never dropped because you got sick. I could only get insurance for my wife through an employer because thirty years ago she had a problem with her thyroid. I also guess you had no problems with the insurance companies selling worthless insurance that in fact covered nothing. Costs for healthcare has been rising for years as we keep more and more people alive through advances in medicine. Before the ACA I was paying 23% of my income for healthcare. Of that 23%, 30% of that went to enrich the insurance industry. I guess you see no problem with that. In the US we pay twice as much as any other developed nation for healthcare but get worse healthcare. The ACA tried to deal with this problem. Had the republicans put the people before party back when the bill was created maybe we wouldn’t be going through the problems today.

    These rhinos should take strong note. We the people want the people version of a new health care bill, not Obamacare 2.0. Congress you take care of your medicaid portion of the bill, but get out of the health care business for the people of this country. Every time you folks get ahold of something, the cost for we the people goes up. Not happy with you Congress!

  • bobnstuff

    Here’s a though, maybe they need to work with the Democrats to fix the bill or even write a new healthcare reform bill that does the things Trump promised while campaigning. Right now all they are doing is playing around with the old bill and no matter what they do it just will not work. Repeal and replace is the only path that will work at this time. The old bill can be fixed but there needs to be the will in congress to do it. Why has our congress forgotten how to work together? The idea is that they all represent all the people not just their party or the ones that voted for them. Until Washington starts working as a single body instead of apposing teams nothing will get done. We need a strong leader to unite the country, both republicans and democrats. The blame game and name calling needs to stop. Maybe that’s what “Make America Great Again” really should mean. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

      They have no incentive to fix healthcare because they are all exempt from it. Make sure any changes includes EVERYONE! Then there will be incentive for them to keep it up and keep it fair. You’re right bobnstuff. As long as we have and us and them mentality, we’re in for a looongg ride! Great post!
