PostSubject: Healthcare bill   Wed Jul 12, 2017 12:33 pm

By Rand Paul,


"I miss the old days, when Republicans stood for repealing Obamacare. Republicans across the country and every member of my caucus campaigned on repeal – often declaring they would tear out Obamacare “root and branch!”
What happened?

Now too many Republicans are falling all over themselves to stuff hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ dollars into a bill that doesn’t repeal Obamacare and feeds Big Insurance a huge bailout.

Obamacare regulations? Still here. Taxes? Many still in place, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars.

Insurance company bailouts? Those, too. Remember when Republicans complained about Obamacare’s risk corridors? Remember when we called the corridors nothing more than insurance company bailouts? I remember when one prominent GOP candidate during a presidential debate explicitly called out the Obamacare risk corridors as a bailout to insurance companies. Does anyone else?

Now, the Senate GOP plan being put forward is chock full of insurance bailout money – to the tune of nearly $200 billion. Republicans, present company excluded, now support the idea of lowering your insurance premium by giving a subsidy to the insurance company.

Remarkable. If the GOP now supports an insurance stabilization fund to lower insurance prices, maybe they now support a New Car stabilization fund to lower the price of cars. Or maybe the GOP would support an iPhone stabilization fund to lower the price of phones.

The possibilities are limitless once you accept that the federal government should subsidize prices. I remember when Republicans favored the free choice of the marketplace.

The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. I want to repeat that so everyone realizes why I’ll vote “no” as it stands now:

The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. Not even close.

In fact, the Senate GOP bill codifies and likely expands many aspects of Obamacare.

The Senate Obamacare-lite bill codifies a federal entitlement to insurance. With the Senate GOP bill, Republicans, for the first time, will signal that they favor a key aspect of Obamacare – federal taxpayer funding of private insurance purchases.

The bill will transfer billions of dollars to people who will then transfer billions of dollars to insurance companies. What a great business model – encourage the federal government to use taxpayer money to buy a private company’s product. Great business model, that is, if you are Big Insurance. Remarkable.

The Senate Obamacare-lite bill does what the Democrats forgot to do – appropriate billions for Obamacare’s cost-sharing reductions, aka subsidies. Really? Republicans are going to fund Obamacare subsidies that the Democrats forgot to fund?

Doesn’t sound much like repeal to me. One might even argue it’s worse than Obamacare-lite because it actually creates a giant superfund to bail out the insurance companies – something even the Democrats feared to do.

I was first elected in the heady days of the Tea Party Tidal Wave, when tens of thousands of citizens gathered on the central city lawn to protest Big Government, Big Debt, and a government takeover of health care.

This citizenry won in four elections. Each time, the GOP establishment told conservatives, “We can’t repeal Obamacare until we have all three branches of government.” Finally, in 2016, that came to pass. Republicans now control all three branches of government.

And . . . the best that is offered is Obamacare-lite: keeping the Obamacare subsidies, keeping some of the Obamacare taxes, creating a giant insurance bailout superfund, and keeping most of the Obamacare regulations.

Shame. Shame on many in the GOP for promising repeal and instead affirming, keeping, and, in some cases, expanding Obamacare. What a shame."

Trump better veto this GOP shit plan if it reaches his desk.

Yeah, I think the whole thing is bullshit.

The Republicans aren't trying to fix anything. They are just trying to make sure their buddies get more unearned money.

The Republican Party needs a healthcare plan because it is sick.

Both major parties are cucked and sold out long ago. Either Trump and his followers will clean house or we are in for economic collapse and civil war.

With regret, I have to agree with you. They are all more interested in serving themselves instead of serving their country as they are supposed to.

I have no idea where this is going but I sure don't like the looks of the road.

I think the first thing that needs be done is to bring manufacturing back to America. This could be done rather easily but the big money people would fight it tooth and nail.

If the healthcare bill as it is now is passed, the US is reduced to a debtor state without diplomatic superiority, and the zombie apocalypse will ensure that China is going to win the next world war. This could actually happen. Shit.

Yeah, the entire economic and moral foundation of Trumps overall teleology is negated if the healthcare system isn't made human. This inhumanity belonged to the globalist stratagem that has become defunct, and without being that apparently smooth superstructure which conducts all the malice so effortlessly in the name of the people, the US can't play its central part in this scheme and it will forego the rewards that its globalistic self valuing relied on, and it will lack the wealth of substance and independence of spirit to return to its former national self valuing. You cannot have a third of the tax revenue be spent on overpriced poison for the taxpayer and continue to exist very long without exploiting the entire rest of the world. Trump just gave the rest of the world a chance to realize that it doesn't want or need to be exploited, so that could become a problem for everyone except those that like to see the US fall.

The question then is only the permanence of the new bill.
A new election is already approaching fast, people really need to have been getting their shit together to stand a chance against the rising tide, or rather to be part of it, to represent it, like Trump did and is still doing. Who can surf a Tsunami? That is the question of Hamlet in current politics.

I think the new health bill is just as bad, if not worse, than Obamacare.

My government has gone insane. They need to be institutionalized.

Well, the Healthcare Reform Bill is dead again.

Nothing left to do now but let it die a natural death. That'll take some time.
