Senator Rand Paul said Tuesday that the President is thinking about executive action on group healthcare insurance. It could save Republicans.
Unfortunately, not all Republicans want to be saved. many are bulletproof and can let their inner RINO show.
Here come the so-called bipartisans
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), who heads the Senate Health Committee, announced he will hold bipartisan hearings during the first week of September on strengthening Obamacare’s individual markets for 2018. That means more tax dollars to shore up Obamacare, long enough to get Democrats in office with their Stalincare proposals.
This will give fools like Sen. Patty Murray (Wash.), the committee’s ranking member, an opportunity to ‘fix’ Obamacare.
Alexander wants to keep pouring money into the failed healthcare system to keep it going.
“We need to put out the fire in these collapsing markets wherever these markets are,” Alexander said at the beginning of a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on nominations.
The American people have been bought with subsidies and governors have been bought with handouts from the federal taxpayer.
“Any solution that Congress passes for a 2018 stabilization package would need to be small, bipartisan and balanced,” Alexander said. “It should include funding for the cost-sharing reductions, but it should also include greater flexibility for states in approving health insurance policies.”
Bipartisan to Senate Republicans is letting Democrats decide.
Insurance companies are threatening 20% increases in premiums so the solution will be to subsidize those premiums with taxpayer dollars from the producers in society.
Big insurance is a cartel and have doubled their profit under Obamacare and demand these subsidies.
“The Senate’s inability to produce 51 votes for a piece of legislation that delivers on a seven-year campaign promise to repeal and replace Obamacare is not license for a bipartisan bailout of a failing law,” Michael A. Needham, CEO of Heritage Action, said in a written statement.
“Is this what it means to be a Republican these days? More bailouts for special interest groups and going back on seven years of promises to repeal ObamaCare?” Jason Pye, vice president of legislative affairs for FreedomWorks, wrote in an email.
Yes, that’s exactly what it means.
