It’s not that complicated really. Live up to your words and your promise and repeal and replace Obamacare.
Repeal it. No excuses. No Susan Collins-style options that let states decide if they want to keep it or not. What the hell is that?! It’s not a repeal, that’s for sure. Repeal is easy, take a vote in the house to fully repeal the whole thing. Not Two years from now either, just repeal it. Do it now. Simple. Keep your promise or we will keep ours. Once the US House passes it, McConnell will need to pretend he’s a man and use the nuclear option to repeal it with a simple majority. Collins is out there lying saying they need 60 votes to repeal it in the Senate. That is not true. It can be done with a simple majority, the same way the freaking demoslugs passed the thing. Do it. Don’t waste time. Do it this week.
Don’t fall for the democrat-inflicted bullsh** that says, “You can’t just repeal it, you have to replace it.” That’s a lie. Plain and simple. You don’t have to replace it.
Don’t let the democrat slugs control the media narrative that says, “OMG, if those mean wepublicans wepeal Obamacare, 30-million people won’t have healthcare. You’ll make America sick again.” That’s solid rat’s rear-end crap. Ask yourself this simple question: What did those 30-million (and there aren’t that many) people do for healthcare before the Obamacare Nightmare? Answer: They still received healthcare they needed even without insurance. Hospitals are not allowed to turn down patients in need of emergency care. So, these people, legals and illegals, would simply go to emergency rooms and get the care they needed.
It’s an absolute lie that these people won’t have healthcare, or will get sick again, if the act is simply repealed. Why are republicans so willing to accept this lie? The truth is that if Obamacare is repealed, then the people who did not have health insurance before, and do now have it under the ACA, will no longer have it. There is a Yuuuge difference, big league, between having health insurance and having access to healthcare. Not having insurance does not equal not having access to healthcare. They will still have access to healthcare and anything else is a lie.
So, after the stupid communist nonsense is repealed, pass laws one at a time that will accomplish the following:
a. Pre-existing illnesses must be covered.
b. Kids can stay on their parents’ plans until age 26.
c. Insurance companies can compete nationally for business.
That’s it. That’s the extent of the “Replace.”
Keep it simple. Get it done dammit.
