CBO scored repeal without a replacement – it’s a humanitarian disaster of incomprehensible scale. 32M lose insurance. Premiums go up 100%. – Senator Chris Murphy

    Hello to everyone from /r/all !

    We are /r/bluemidterm2018 and we are dedicated to electing Democratic candidates at the local, state, and federal level. Please be advised that this is a heavily moderated subreddit for democratic activism. Please respect our rules listed in the sidebar. Thank you and have a nice day.

    Edit- Repeal without a replacement has now died. Three republican senators are voting no.

    This whole process has really made me wonder just how far Mitch McConnell is willing to go to get a win for his side. Everytime I think he’s hit rock bottom he just keeps digging.

    They aren’t trying to fix healthcare, they’re trying to make it look like they’re trying to fix healthcare.

    They’re just trying to get rid of the taxes in the ACA. Taxes the vast majority of us do not pay. Taxes that allowed Medicaid to be expanded, and helped keep premium costs from going up more than they already have.

    They’re trying to do it in a way that it makes it look like they did something good in the eyes of republican voters, while being able to blame any negative outcomes on the opposition.

    They can’t even pretend that they know or give a shit about governing anymore.

    Republicans care only for property rights…not human rights.

    …But because of the “FOX/Limbaugh/GOP 24 hour bullshit machine” Loyal working class Republican voters would have no way of knowing that.

    It makes perfect sense. Pass a repeal and specify that it does not take effect for eight years, ensuring that the health care crisis becomes some other president’s problem and still counting it as a win for this president.

    The bill is dead. Murkowski just came out against it making 3 against it.

    My favorite part of the process of creating laws for a country of 324.5 million people is when lawmakers “play” it like a fucking sport for their “team” to “win”.

    Disconnect healthcare from insurance! Problem solved.

    I saw some Republicans saying that this wouldn’t go into effect until 2 years from now, so if Dems sweep in 2018 they would be blamed for it. Anyone know if this is true? That really worries me.

    Murder for Money.
    Millions priced put of healthcare to save dollars for the people who least need it.

    Republicans are not a believer in math, it’s taboo.

    It doesn’t matter. Conservatives have already decided the CBO is yet another organization with a liberal bias…..you know….like biology, climate science, polls, facts in general.

    Where is the CBO report? All I see is that it was delayed for the current verison of the bill.

    So premiums are going up if the repeal or replace or just leave it the fuck alone….. Sounds like we need to get rid of the insirance companies altogether and then can healthcare service costs.

    So before it was everyone covered under ACA would lose care. Now, everyone covered under the ACA plus 12m more will.

    34m is about 10% of the country.

    11.4 million expected to be on Obamacare plans in 2017. How will repealing Obamacare put 32 million off Obamacare? Or does this include medicare and such?

    Yay! We did it! This is winning! /s

    fml… and those of 32 million others, apparently…

    It’s not about the insurance, it never was.

    Dems should flip and pass this. Pin Trump/McConnell/Ryan and the whole of the Republican Party to their disaster. All you’d need is a plan to fix things. Dangle it in front of America. Blue or die. Red is dead.

    Continuing to prevent Repubs from owning their disasterous policies has worked against Dems to this point. Hell, Dens can’t even bother to show how most of the problems with Obamacare were the Republican demands/additions.
