Senate Republicans release new Obamacare repeal bill

by
July 13, 2017

Senate Majority LeaderSenate Republicans’ draft Obamacare repeal bill will tentatively include a controversial amendment from Ted Cruz, a change aimed at building enough GOP support to open debate on the bill next week, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will unveil the bill on Thursday morning at a closed-door, GOP members-only meeting. It is also expected to maintain Obamacare’s taxes for the wealthy, include new financial support for low-income people’s insurance, allow people to pay for insurance with pre-tax money, and include billions more to fight opioid addiction, according to a summary obtained by POLITICO.

The amendment from the conservative Texas Republican could be altered or removed later, those sources said. The amendment would allow the sale of cheap, deregulated insurance plans as long as Obamacare-compliant plans are still sold.

It is not yet clear whether the inclusion of Cruz’s proposal will be enough for conservatives. Utah Sen. Mike Lee has previously advocated for the amendment with Cruz, but Cruz has been handling the lion’s share of negotiating with McConnell. Lee is not yet supportive of the latest version because he’s unaware of its content, a spokesman for Lee said.

    “…Obamacare’s taxes for the wealthy, include new financial support for
    low-income people’s insurance, allow people to pay for insurance with
    pre-tax money, and include billions more to fight opioid addiction…”

    So, taxes on the wealthy? Guess what? That is EXACTLY how our current, corrupt, tax system started out, a PROMISE to only tax the wealthy!
    Financial support for low income, stuff like this should be handled by the States!
    And billions for opioid addiction? Seriously? With States like Oregon, Mexifornia, Colorado, etc., basically legalizing drugs? Now we have to take care of morons addicted? That is simply wrong!

    REPEAL OBAMACARE! Simple, but Congress does nothing simple, they have to convolute things in order to maintain Control, that is what this is about, has NOTHING to do with ‘helping’ people.

    Wow, the Republicons with their 9% job approval may have a Health Care plan AFTER 8 YEARS. Ha, Ha – the Party of No with their band of merry DO NOTHINGS!! What a sad bunch gutless, useless DWEEBS! Can’t wait for the masses without Health Care, to start dying off. Then we can thank the red neck hill-billy from Kentucky and the Catholic boy want-a-be from Cheese land for killing so many Americans. The morals of a S–t House Rat!!!

    I WILL DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO GET MCCONNELL FROM BEING ELECTED AGAIN IF THEY DO NOT DO WHAT THEY PROMISED. I AM FED UP WITH LYING POLITICIANS. REPEAL OBAMA AND COME UP WITH A INSURANCE BILL. I DID WITHOUT INSURANCE THE FIRST 25 YEARS OF MY LIFE, SO WHAT. I AM 86 NOW AND STILL KICKING.

    SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE A MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

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

    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.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

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

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    We want obamacare repealed, we don’t want government run health care, all you have to do is have some mandated regulations that the insurance companies have to follow. Get the hell out of the health care business, we don’t want government run healthcare

    Total Repeal was Promised…But Republicans don’t have 60 Votes…
    The Mandate is my Concern, due to it being Government Overreach…Never should have ever been put into Law.
    Anything else… $20 Trillion in debt and Going Higher…The N/D will Never be Reduced…

    • Walter Flatt

      RAND PAUL HAD A PLAN THAT PASSED BOTH HOUSES AND OBAMA VETOED IT. WHY NOT USE IT NOW? IS SOMEONE PAYING SOMEONE OFF?

  • NOUNBELIEVER

    every rino that votes for this bill should be thrown out of office….REPEAL OBAMACARE….LEAVE ANY OF OBAMACARE IN PLACE AND THE DEMOS WILL HAVE ONE PAYER GOVERNMENT TOTAL CONTROL OF OUR MEDICAL LIVES AS TOTAL DICTATORSHIP RAPIDLY APPROACHES….RINOS ARE DEMOS TOO GUTLESS TO SAY THE TRUTH

  • Retired

    That does not sound like a REPEAL to me , just another version of Ocare to continue ..What is in ACA that they are afraid to do a repeal it completely . We need a bill to prevent insurance from refusing to cover prior and that they can not charge extra. Then they need to clamp down on the Insurance Industry to lower rates and cut down on the top pay along with bib bonus money . Allow insurance to cross borders or district that are in place now and cost will come down .

    I voted for Donald Trump and republican members based on promises of repeal of ospamacare. Time to live up to your word. Time for you republicans and RINOS to stop all the B.S. and get behind my president ASAP. Mr. Trump may be an outsider to Washington but he is the people’s choice as was another great outsider and probably the greatest man ever to be in the white house. Talking about RONALD REAGAN of course. Give our chosen Pres. a fair shake. Get off his back and give him proper backing!!!
