1. First off, this plan was put together and passed by the House in less than 2 months. It makes me wonder if any legitimate thought about the American people was put into it. Compared to the several months of preparation for Obama care, this was lightening fast.
2. Did you know that the Trump Care bill was actually submitted to the House as a budget reconciliation bill as part of the 2017 Federal Budget process? It was presented this way because rules will not allow for any filibusters and that it can be passed through the Senate with a simple majority vote. It would repeal the parts of the Affordable Care Act within the scope of the federal budget, including provisions contained within the Internal Revenue Code such as the individual and employer mandates and various taxes, and also allow modifications to the federal Medicaid program. This seems somewhat underhanded, however it is within the rules.
3. The MacArthur amendment which was added to the plan to lure and reel in doubting Republicans allows insurers to charge enrollees in their 50s and early 60s more than younger enrollees. I am 58 years old and have two words for this. FUCK YOU! It also allows states to waive essential health benefits and certain sections of the community rating program. The revised version of Trump Care weakens protections for insurance consumers with preexisting conditions while allowing insurers to charge people significantly more if they had a pre-existing condition. This is a kick in the ass to many of our Senior citizens who struggle with major infliction's.
4. I have a real problem with a health care bill that effects the American people being created and passed by a bunch of rich men and women in Washington who have the best health care that the tax payers money can buy. These ass clowns health care will not be effected in any way by this bill. Maybe if it was, they would take their time to come up with a better bill or maybe entertain the thought of our federal government getting out of the health care business all together.
5. Finally, I really have a problem with a bill like this being passed without first being reviewed and approved by The Office of Management & Budget. The OMB dissects and analyzes all budget type bills to access their financial stability. In other words, they make sure that a bill makes sense financially. Our members of the House rammed this bill through without getting a true view of how it will effect the federal budget as well as the pocketbooks of the American public.
