Oh no wait, we’re still just throwing things out and seeing what might stick!
Normally when I write here, I am responding to something I’ve seen or read that has sparked my latest commentary. Today’s response is actually to one specific article, I read while riding on the bus to work. I was reading AP and this great piece by Alan Fram, its about the Republicans latest attempt to rid the world of the nightmare that President Obama gave us, the Affordable Care Act (ACA). And surprisingly the Republicans have announced that they finally have a plan to replace Obamacare.
Well as we’ve quickly discovered, the so-called plan is in reality a bunch of ideas, not finalized, but in consideration to replace whats currently in law. What?
Hmmm, so wait a minute, that means no real plan, right? Really, lets end Obamacare, even if The Supreme Court says, it’s still cool and the current case in front of them gets thrown out. And then maybe we can replace it with these possibilities. But nothing yet is written in stone. And of course, the options currently on the table are worse then the ones already in place. Huh, in other words, no real plan. Simply pathetic. Things are certainly different in Washington, since The Republicans took over Congress… not.
So, here we go: Below you will find sections of the article I read by Alan Fram. Below each, you will see my comments about what was written. As if you get to listen to what I was thinking as I read this excellent article.
Wow, maybe they were actually telling the truth. Maybe this is a new Republican Party?
That’s 5 years people... 5, but like I said, this is the new Republican Party.
The plan - it’s not in legislative language and may not be anytime soon -
Oh, so in other words, no real bill, no real legislation, just ‘plans’... but let’s continue.
So basically, we end healthcare coverage (19 million Americans will receive coverage as a result of the law, including large numbers in GOP-dominated states) without any replacement...
Really sir, shouldn’t that been done already before delivering your Legislation in front of the American people...
In other words, the states can decide that that money is needed for tax breaks.... And nobody gets covered, accept themselves. You know the ones in power.
In other word, no healthcare for you!
In other words, women, screw you.
Hmmm, how many people will lose their coverage over this BS...
In other words: we get to pay for the bills of the uninsured when they can’t... Wasn’t that one of reasons for Healthcare reform in the first place. Emergency room non payers.
Wait wait wait, the republicans want to raise taxes? Really, maybe I should rethink my doubts about their plans. Hmmmm can’t wait to see the small print on this one.
Limits? Really in the free market world of healthcare.... we don't need no stinky limits.
Just one man’s opinion
