The left now says Obamacare isn’t failing. Democrats want to preserve Obamacare for ideology’s sake and won’t help in developing a replacement. They’re hoping the soundbites and the media will convince people that Obamacare is fine. The reality is that premiums are astronomical and unsustainable. Rand Paul addressed that on Fox News.
Republicans won election, to some degree, based on their promise to repeal and replace Obamacare. They’re actually just going to fix it.
President Trump says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is working hard to pass something soon and it will be passed with 51 votes.
Rand Paul weighs in
Senator Rand Paul has weighed in and won’t vote for a bill that makes the House bill worse. He says the House bill didn’t fix the regulations which are the cause of the high premiums, it just provides subsidies. His impression is the Senate bill adds more subsidies, making it worse.
The problem Republicans have is that so many people have been put on subsidies, the numbers who now like Obamacare has grown. If Republicans add to the original mistake made by Barack Obama, they will further drive us towards Single Payer. Think of all the people who will want freebies once they’re on subsidized healthcare.
Where’s this money coming from? We add at least $500 billion to the debt every year.
Obama’s healthcare transformation efforts have been a disaster in every way and it is currently destroying our healthcare system though Democrats and their media minions are trying to portray it as only needing a few fixes. From the website to the exchanges to payments, it’s a failure.
Obama’s Program sent $729 million to the ineligible and the dead
Free Beacon reported Tuesday that Obama’s electronic program made $729 million in erroneous payments to doctors. They even paid dead doctors.
The Inspector General picked it up because Obama’s programs have little oversight and little accountability built in, which is the problem with big government.
From May 2011 through June 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services paid an estimated $729 million in Medicare electronic health record incentive payments to eligible professionals who did not comply with Federal requirements,” the inspector general said. “In addition, it paid $2.3 million in inappropriate electronic health record incentive payments to eligible professionals who switched incentive programs.”
2 million more people just dropped out of ObamaCare. It is in a death spiral. Obstructionist Democrats gave up, have no answer = resist!
