    This may come up at the press conference since it is now being reported that the Senate will not have the votes to kill BarryCare.

    Don’t get caught up with all this BS about not having enough votes to pass a bill for repeal and replace. As much as the GOPe in the Senate want to kill the repeal bill and replace bill, the pressure will be so great because every single week that goes by, more and more of these stories will be unfolding.

    http://www.bizjournals.com/dayton/news/2017/06/06/anthem-pulling-out-of-ohio-health-care-exchange.html

    From the article linked above:

    Anthem, the largest health insurance provider in Ohio, is pulling out of the state health insurance exchange next year — leaving 20 of the state’s 88 counties without an insurer.

    It offered individual plans in all 88 Ohio counties in 2017 — and in 20 of them Anthem is the only insurer offering plans.

    And by the way, this is the first state of 14 that Anthem will be pulling out of. Anthem is killing them by deciding one at a time rather than pulling the band aid off all at once.

    http://www.cnbc.com/2017/03/30/big-obamacare-insurer-anthem-seen-leaning-toward-exiting-many-areas.html

    A new analyst report says there is reason to believe that major Obamacare insurer Anthem “is leaning toward exiting a high percentage” of the insurance regions where it currently sells individual health plans.

    If that happens, millions of Obamacare customers and potential customers would be left in 2018 with even fewer choices of insurers than they have now.

    Anthem currently insures more than 800,000 individual plan customers in 144 rating regions in 14 states.

    Other major insurers, including Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, Cigna and Humana, have already scaled back their footprints in the Obamacare markets.

    But Anthem’s exit would potentially have a bigger impact.

      I think your instincts are right about this. With insurance companies pulling out of states, and no government subsidies to keep the merry-go-round moving, the American people will be rising up and demanding heads from the DC swamp. They better get a clue, and fast!

          Who are they? I most certainly am blaming Republicans until proven wrong. It would be one thing if healthcare was the only thing lanquishing in the congress but essentially every one of President Trump’s MAGA efforts are being stonewalled by the GOP (tax reform, WALL, and it will happen with infrastructure guaranteed).

            I am on the Yahoo comment section. I shared the following below. Please feel free to use it if you decide to fight these morons on the left!

            Don’t fall for the BS they are trying to sell you about the uncertainty around the subsidies! These insurance companies have been losing hundreds of millions of dollars since 2014. Obamacare was set up purposely to fail in 2017 and especially 2018 because HRC was suppose to win the election and take the entire country to single payer. The liberal UTOPIA! This has nothing to do with $8 billion dollar subsidy that the President is paying through August. This was the master plan!

      If the GOP Senate thinks they don’t have the votes now just wait until Nov 2018 when they most certainly WILL NOT HAVE THE VOTES to remain the majority party. Pathetic, traitorous, do-nothing, lying, skanks working as hard as the Dems to sabotage President Trump’s agenda.

    • The only reason for Congressional delay is to give time for the Insurance Industry’s lobbyists to write the bill(s) and negotiate the pay-to-play bribes for Congress.

      This need not be over-complicated:
      Create 50 incubators for better solutions.
      Donate the federal software for ObamaCare to every state.
      Let each state decide whether to accept, rewrite or cancel ObamaCare.

      The Blue States can accept or rewrite to their little hearts’ content.
      The Red States can cancel and open interstate Insurer competition.
      Each State retains its Constitutional authority to decide on expanded entitlements.

      The Insurers will have solutions in place in 4-12 weeks.

      • The States couldn’t make Obamacare work because it needed the mandate & Federal subsidies. The fight is really over admitting that there are different solutions to indigent healthcare and private healthcare. Obamacare was the biggest redistribution scheme ever designed a way to make Americans pay for the indigent, the illegals and subsidize a large number of kickback schemes to enrich the SJW pet projects and themselves.

        Once you separate the two problems the solution is much simpler. Private healthcare should be policed by the State to protect against insurance companies refusing entitled care or defrauding customers. The fewer State mandates the better, let people decide what they want to pay for and allow competition.

        The indigent population and subsidized market for uninsurables would have more State involvement because they will be the payor/part payor. Here also the States would be wise to contract with private & charitable organizations to be sure the $ are spent wisely and are going only to the needy. This is the arena for innovation and policing of fraudulent benefits & claims. Congresses part is to fascilitate the Governments separation from healthcare, and removal of burdensome regulation that drives up the cost. Tort reform would be a big help as would action on decreasing the cost of drug approval, streamlining the process with a commitment to lower pricing by Pharmy.

I also love the fact that it is happening in Ohio (I apologize in advance to any Ohio Treeper effected by this) because the moron for a governor, has been a big critic of repealing and replacing Obozocare. Hard to fight that fight when constituents in the state have ZERO options!

Even IN didn’t want him after Mike Pence moved up in the world. His Lt. Gov is running for Gov in 2018, but facing serious challenge from Josh Mandel- who has never been a Katshit fan. He’ STILL trolling the President trying to drum up interest in his book. What is it with OH- Boehner, Kasich, Portman, Brown, Turner- they’re all spineless weasels.

      Sadly Anthem (Blue Cross/Blue Shield) are super expensive and part of the problem with the huge increases in copay and in any bills for doctors and surgery and meds. Seeing them go is not a bad thing and will further force whatever remnants of ACA to disappear down the sewer. We asked for a repeal and taking care of our vets and already 138 billion set aside for those with preconditions. Now, we need to get our elected employees in both houses to get this repeal and other Trump plans voted and in place. We hired them to represent us and we need to let them know we have had it with stalling, changing whatever to lessen or ruin what Trump has stated he wanted and as he promised us. Remind them that we can remove them as employees and they don’t own us! We are tired of the establishment creeps, RINOS and moderates in either House and they need to get the job done or else! Enough with Ryan and McConnell playing games and think we will let them get away with them. Not any more! Do the job you were placed to do or else! Trump’s plans have shown they are for America and us and those already in action have proven that, so let’s get over the honey pots of money you will lose and get what Trump and we want done NOW! McConnell wake up and smell the coffee and stop obfuscating and dodging or else! Ditto Ryan. Shut up McCain, Graham and as for us let’s get them removed asap as demonstrating incitement and treason and avoiding supporting our elected fairly PRESIDENT!

      • Press briefings before Trump were irrelevant. I never watched them in any other Presidency and the times I saw snips, the press secretaries looked either ashamed of what they were being asked to say or arrogant and dismissive. Trump’s Presidency is a horse of a different color. For the first time in decades the events and discussions are grippingly interesting to Main Street and I believe we are going to MAGA.

    ok – the WH is getting MUCH better at controlling the deep state jackals, but Spicer is still allowing himself to engage WAY too much with them, esp major dumbass, which in turn allows him to LOSE control…up until then today he was GREAT

    DO NOT argue with them period. Answer the question and then MOVE ON TO THE NEXT…do not allow them extra questions…EVER

    personally i would kill ’em with kindness while taking absolute control – no reason to be rude or reactionary when you’re in charge

    you can see how much better behaved these infantile fools are when they are DISCIPLINED – they are CRYING OUT FOR IT lol

    here’s my strong suggestion – the WH has hinted at it but NEVER followed through

    take at least 50 percent of the question on Skype and from alternative/true conservative media – DO NOT ALLOW the msm narrative to dominate as they’ve been ALLOWED to do thus far…just SHUT THESE assclowns DOWN…period

    the result would be a radically different picture projected to the American people and the world…
    why they haven’t done this yet is baffling
