    Why do people from the administration subject themselves to being on these moonbat programs. These people will never accept logic or any other explanation given.. they just want to ” gotcha, gotcha”.

      The President’s message needs wide dissemination.
      Given that the media is dominated by liberals, they will always be attacking; rather than reporting.
      The ‘gotcha’ strategy’s fatal flaw is that when it fails; the audience that needs accurate information the most; is watching.

        They very well may be watching but unless they have had a Missouri attention getter applied they will still not comprehend – they simply are too used to swallowing the left’s version of ‘reality’ that far too many of them will not understand. I guess that if a few actually do wake up it is a ‘win’ but there are probably better and more effective to do that.

      I totally disagree with your assessment. HHS Secretary, Dr. Tom Price, not only slapped Jake the Facker around but also got to slap the Facker’s father around as well. The $880 Billion dollar savings is coming from the fact that if Obamacare was still functioning, it would cost that much on the Medicaid end. The AHCA is actually saving us the money without hurting the patients now or in the future. It is a Ponzi scheme they are trying to sell the American people.

        None of these talking heads understand finance in general much less in detail. All they have is their talking points. Dr Tom Price on the other hands understands their talking points and finance in detail and most of all the delivery of health care to actual patients.

    There has to be a reason, but I haven’t figured it out yet. The only thing I can think, it continues to confirm for all to see the moonbattery of the Libtard media types.


  3. Bob says:

    Way to much BS by politicians. Each has their own opinion on the issue …the govt. needs to get completely out of the insurance biz. None of these politicians have mentioned one word of the “Control” portion of Obamacare being ripped out of theses proposals, so we have to assume it’s still in there. It’s all political spin….they make it confusing so that we give up on the issue. We have to take whatever crap they hand us…then put some stupid phrase into it like the “Doughnut Hole” are we all morons and don’t see what they are doing here?

          Sorry; your state’s poor choice of politicians does not countermand or usurp the US Constitution, nor does it constitute an imperative upon citizens of other states to bail you out.

          The US Constitution does NOT invest in the federal government with any power in regards to individual health care. Period. ZERO authority. And those powers not granted specifically to the federal government revert to “the states, or The People, respectively”.

          I suggest you Californians select sane politicians, if you want to have sane government.

    It sounds to me that this gnatty “cut” in MediCaid spending is actually a REDUCTiON in MediCaid cost “cut”. In other words, MediCaid will costs less to fund while increasing coverage and hopefully, will increase care too. Is my thinking correct?

    I just know ObamaCare screwed up MediCare too. Taking the Replacement/Supplement policy options I’ve chosen for over 15 years into non-existence without a high $ premium. Forcing me into straight MediCare, aka “deathbed” insurance.


    • NC PATRIOT says:

      And even with Medicare, you need supplemental insurance to cover the 20 % medicare doesn’t cover.

        I am waiting on my MediCare and You 2017. I had a Humana Replacement Plan but they dropped at the end of last year. I used to qualify for MediCaid “Spend-down” in my state but apparently, no longer do beyond my MediCare premium payment, anticipating it too cease to exist.

        ObamaCare created less coverage less care at greater cost. It is frightening and appalling that the MSM doesn’t get this…and that’s rhetorical, by the way.


      • Janie M. says:

        NC Pat., I wouldn’t have been able to afford the supplemental policy which would have covered the 20% out of pocket expenses (that policy was also going to increase in 2016 shortly after I would have been eligible for Medicare). So I opted out of Part B as it would have been useless without the supp. policy. My state has a benefit which would have covered most of Part B’s monthly premium but my income was $12/mo over their limit. Seriously?! 🙄 Ironically, my income is low enough I qualified for a free Rx plan – Part D but can’t use it since I have to use VA medical providers. I’m fortunate I at least have that health care (depending on your perspective) to fall back on.

    The biggest gift in this CR in my opinion was the fact that our President and Mick Mulvaney negotiated the the wall payment “Brick and Mortar” for the Obamacare subsidy payments. The Democrats were completely shortsighted. Their fear of the wall made them give up the fight for the subsidy payments. By doing so, we saw the ramifications the day after Mick tore the sh…t out of the MSM and Democrats.

    Aetna announced they were leaving in the state of Iowa and Virginia. Medica announced they were pulling out of Iowa because of the uncertainty of the subsidy payments. Anthem stated they were pulling out of Virginia because of the uncertainty surrounding the subsidy payments. The House Republicans faced this reality. Especially the two morons in Iowa that were a NO. 93 out of 99 counties in Iowa will have NO Provider next year. 23 counties in Virginia will have no provider next year. The tsunami effect had just begun and believe me will get worse over the coming months.

    Thank you Barry from Hawaii for your arrogance of never implementing a budget which allowed President Trump a chance at the 2017 fiscal year funding. You banked on HRC winning and you LOST. Thank you Democrats for fighting the “Bricks and Mortar” because you thought you won but you LOST and put the final nail in the one piece of legislation that had Barry’s name attached to it.

    The MSM like Deface the Nation will do everything to save Barry’s legacy but they know they can’t. Mick threw it in their face that Obamacare is dead. By the time our President signs the bill, there will be over 24,000,000+ without insurance. The reason being is what has already happened in Iowa and 24 counties in Virginia. Those folks have a card and nowhere to go with it. They can’t win the fight because Barry played his hand and LOST miserably.

    More proof they screwed themselves. From the article:

    Of the five insurers, the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Mid-Atlantic States had the lowest average requested increase for their plans, at 18.08%. The highest was CareFirst of Maryland, with an average increase request of 58.80%, which would bring the baseline monthly premium payment for the plans up to $714.95.

    The maximum requested premium increases were similarly striking. The biggest proposed jump came from Cigna, which requested a 150.83% hike for a plan on the high end.

    Also at issue is the uncertainty of whether Obamacare’s cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments are ceased.

    The payments, which help defray the cost of providing low-income Americans with cheaper health insurance plans, are seen as critical to ensure the stabilization of the ACA’s individual insurance markets.

    Currently, the payments are appropriated by the White House rather than Congress, and President Donald Trump has threatened to end the payments. The payments are also subject to an ongoing lawsuit between the House and executive branch questioning the legality of their funding without a congressional appropriation. While the Obama administration defended the case, Trump could drop an appeal of a ruling from 2016 in which a court sided with House Republicans.


    In fact, in California, the insurance commission told insurers that the companies could submit plans that assumed CSRs would be paid and a set of rates assuming they went unpaid.

    “I have written President Trump asking that he and his Administration stop undermining the Affordable Care Act and health insurance markets,” read a letter from Dave Jones, the California insurance commissioner, to insurers filing in the state. “Health insurers are legitimately concerned that the President’s actions are undermining the ACA and health insurance markets.”

    We are winning folks!

      Just one question. How can ANY payment plan/scheme/device, whether it be OCare or TCare, any plan at all, maintain stability if the cost of service is uncontrolled by any factors whatsoever? Consider that the Federal government’s spending on healthcare has been increasing at an average annual rate of 8-9% since at least 2000, presently consuming 35% of all Federal spending…..and it has complete control over it’s own ‘insurance scheme’.

    Tapper is well aware of what Dr. Price was telling him. He didn’t care. He just wanted to trip Price up so he could make headlines and start a thread for the weekly liberal news. He tried but did not succeed against a man who knows very well the details of the subject he was talking about. Too bad Tapster. You lose.

    I didn’t find Sec Price’s explanations very enlightening. He just kept repeating that it was good but not really going into the reason why it was good apart from the contention that giving control to States would somehow fix things and that there would be more competition between insurance companies which would lower costs. All of this is conjecture.

    I hoping Sec Price meant that this bill, or what is passed, means that the Medicaid expansion would end. Obamacare expanded Medicaid to cover able body childless adults. Medicaid was just supposed to be for disabled, elderly poor and to promote healthy births.
    The Medicaid Expansion under Obamacare became a outrageous money pit. I think that is what he was trying to say. By giving a pot of Medicaid money to the states, the governers can appropriate the money the way they see most fitting.
    People are getting off Medicaid because it sucks, if you can get a job that offers insurance, you would rather have that then free Medicaid.
    Millions of Americans should not be getting Medicaid, it should be for just the disabled, the elderly poor and programs that promote healthy births and child health care among poor people who don’t prioritize caring for their kids in their budgets.
    Trump should have just let Obamacare go on and the states that took the expansion start paying for it. This is why Kaisch and Christie are against cutting the expansion. Their constituents are so heavily taxed on the state and local level they can raise taxes to pay for the Medicaid expansion.
    I don’t know any working class person who is on Medicaid.

    So, if the Feds aren’t going to administer Medicaid, what will the savings be from all the employees laid off? {shrug}


  20. Jeff Shapiro says:

    Why can’t Congress reform the CBO so that they don’t use artificial baseline budgeting, which gives media partisans like Tapper their talking points? Only in Washington is spending more money a cut because it is less than an arbitrary pie in the sky assumption of increased spending. Then maybe Dr Price could have spent more time talking about the substance of the bill instead of refuting the stupidity of Tapper’s baseline budgeting “cuts” question.
