Trumpcare Passes Through Committee!
The party of stupid and their leader Fuhrer Donald J. Trump continue to push forth an agenda that is lost upon the public. They continue to push the American Health Care Act, a blatant attempt to undermine the Affordable Care Act.
For years, Republicans wasted time attacking the Democrats and then president Barack Obama for crafting legislation in secret and then rushing votes before lawmakers really understood the bill.
The process to pass healthcare reform lasted nearly a year and it was contentious. Republicans used "alternative facts" to scapegoat then House Speaker, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Democrats for the so-called problems of ACA (known by the idiots, Obamacare).
The fuhrer's on board with the "repeal and replace" bill. He said if it fails or destroys the healthcare system, he just blame the Democrats and Obama for the failure.
The Republicans have complained that the Democrats rammed the ACA through without reading it.
Do you get the thought of deja vu when it comes to enacting laws?
This nonsense cleared a hurdle. The committees Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means spent dozens of hours and tried to compromise on ACA.
The Republican plan will roll back ACA's expansion of Medicaid and further reduce funding for the program, then restructure tax subsidies in ways that will provide less for those with lower incomes and higher deductibles and costs when purchasing insurance.
Some could benefit, others will suffer.
The Congressional Budget Office (remember that thing Republicans crowed about) hasn't calculated the cost of this bill.
