Repeal of the PPACA Vote On Hold
“House leaders postponed a vote Thursday on their plan to overhaul the nation’s health-care system, casting doubt on whether President Trump and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) can deliver on one of the GOP’s central promises to the voters who placed Republicans in power.
Lawmakers and White House officials continued to express confidence that the revisions to the Affordable Care Act would pass by week’s end, and talks resumed soon after leaders announced the postponement. As evening came, members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus filed into the office of Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), as did White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon.”
It would be nice to snatch their healthcare at the same time or make sure some of those old folk get to pay for premiums at a 5:1 ratio. New CBO scoring after changes to the bill shows only $150 billion saved. Also the changes to the bill do nothing to prevent 14 million from being uninsured in the next year.
Need a clean repeal bill. Nothing more.
they’re kind of in a Catch 22…the bill they’ve got now is already too severe to pass the Senate, yet 33 of the House tea party wont accept it because it wont repeal enough…
Trumpcare is not what was promised.
A clean repeal would never pass the Senate.
The TEAparty dog caught the ACA car and hasn’t a clue what to do with it.
Trumpcare is not only not what was promised, it is a pathetic, shape-shifting abomination reeking of Ryan flop sweat.
Following the bills progress today March 24
