|The Republicans rollout their "repeal and replacement" bill.|
The American Health Care Act is coming out the basement. The so-called "repeal and replacement" bill is out and it's getting hammered for being a watered down bill that caters to big business and the rich.
After nearly eight years of rhetoric, the Republican House decided to find a replacement to the Affordable Healthcare Act (known by the idiots as Obamacare). And this doozy of a bill will cover far fewer than the ACA did.
Republicans are being ridiculed for rolling out a bill that could inflict harm on the middle class.
This bill breaks the promise of fuhrer Donald J. Trump's word to help the middle class, bigly.
The bill proposed by Republicans is endorsed by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). The bill offers less financial assistance to low-income people, likely resulting in millions of Americans losing the health coverage they have today, and provide tax credits to those who have higher income. The bill takes away consumer protections.
Ryan is the current House Speaker and former 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee.
The bill targeted low income and places a catch on insurance for those with pre-existing conditions.
The bill doesn't match up to the Congressional Budget Office's financial analysis.
Already, conservatives hate the idea. They want a full repeal of the healthcare law no matter what's in it. The less extreme Republicans refuse to get on board with this because of the impact they face in swing states carried by Trump and Obama.
The House and Senate Democrats (minus Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia) are universally opposed to the bill.
