Yesterday, Republicans revealed their idea to replace Obamacare.

It wasn’t exactly impressive.

In fact, it was so underwhelming that the House Freedom Caucus isn’t going along with it.

They are going to put forward their own bill that matches up with what conservatives have been promising for years.

From Townhall:

“You have to get rid of Obamacare completely,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said. The legislation released on Monday does not satisfy that condition.

“The leadership plan is Obamacare in a different form,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said, agreeing with his colleague.

Instead of going along with the Republican leadership’s plan, Jordan noted that he will reintroduce the bill every Republican voted for last year: the bill that completely repeals Obamacare. Then, he will introduce separate legislation to replace with a “market centered” model that will bring down premiums.

  1. The problem is “Repeal and Replace”
    The solution is “Repeal” and get out of the way.

    Say NO to government health care control.

    • Not going to happen. The horse has already gotten out of the barn. GOP has control of both House & Senate because they campaigned on “Repeal & Replace,” and if they don’t, they will most likely be all voted out.

  2. Idiots. The problem is the over inflated medical costs. Insurance just funds the problem. Trying to fix the problem by forcing everyone to own insurance is this same as trying to put out a fire with gasoline………

    • I know. I’ve been saying this for ages. Real Healthcare reform would focus on the absurd cost of healthcare DELIVERY. Not just trying to make it more affordable to have ACCESS. And certainly doesn’t make sense to base the whole foundation of “reform” on the very (insurance) industry that contributes to the problem of high prices while contributing ZERO to the outcome of our healthcare.
