Republicans are widening the discussion of ObamaCare to get the dramatic changes needed, but they seem to be ditching repeal and replace, for repair.

Republicans’ made a last ditch effort in July to overturn Obama’s signature healthcare law, but it fell one short in the Senate. Thank you John McTraitor!

It was humiliating defeat for President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“In one Senate committee, a bipartisan effort is under way to repair Obamacare without repealing it. It is being led by the Republican health committee chairman, Lamar ‘lame’ Alexander, and the panel’s top Democrat, Patty Murray.

They want to stabilize the Obamacare individual insurance market by protecting its “cost-sharing subsidies.”

No More Repeal! Congress to Repair ObamaCare! What?

Those payments go to insurers to help reduce out-of-pocket medical expenses for low-income Americans enrolled in Obamacare.

Trump, who made repealing and replacing Obamacare a major campaign promise, has repeatedly threatened to stop the payments, which insurers say would force a 20 percent premium price increase.

Alexander, who also wants states to have more flexibility to design health insurance plans under Obamacare, said on Tuesday the goal was a “small bipartisan step” that could break the years-long partisan stalemate over the law.

 The Tennessee lawmaker said he hoped to have a bipartisan consensus proposal by sometime next week, although it was unclear if McConnell would bring such a measure to the floor. He was noncommittal when asked about it on Tuesday.

Some Republicans were supportive. Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson said if the government did not keep funding the cost-sharing subsidies, insurance premiums would likely rise and the government would have to spend more money on tax credits that help consumers afford the premiums. “The insurance companies get their money either way,” Johnson told Reuters.

Maine Republican Susan Collins, who voted against repealing and replacing Obamacare in July, said she hoped to support the bipartisan Obamacare repair effort. “Based on the hearings so far, (I) would expect to,” she said.

 The effort was being watched closely by companies such as Anthem Inc (ANTM.N), which has trimmed the number of states and counties in which it will sell Obamacare plans in 2018.

The company said on Tuesday it was still working with some state regulators on its market participation for next year [L2N1LT17A]. Anthem and other insurers have a deadline of Sept. 27 to finalize their 2018 Obamacare roles.

Separately, independent Senator Bernie Sanders, a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, was pushing a plan to widen the Medicare health insurance program for seniors, to include everyone.

America is hoping that Congress will come to an agreement on the new Health Care law by the end of this month.  The new health care law will make america great

ObamaCare Threw This Burn Victim Out Of The Hospital After 3 Days!

Published

on

The Federal Government cannot micromanage and nowhere is that made clearer than with ObamaCare.

Recently, John, a Floridian man visiting Tennessee was burned over 60% of his body. After 3 days he was sent home and without pain medication. Vanderbilt Hospital has since picked up the slack, but this story will horrify you!

If it happens to him, it can happen to anyone.

The Federal Government cannot micromanage and nowhere is that made clearer than with ObamaCare.

The man’s sister took to social media to plead for help after exhausting all other avenues. As of this writing the post had almost 10,000 shares and it is stated that Vanderbilt has stepped up to the plate and is now giving her brother the help he needs.

It should not take Facebook to get a burn victim the help he needs and before ObamaCare this would not have happened!

John’s sister posted on June 28th:

What’s worse then having 60% of your body burned from a fire? I’ll tell you…. Being forced from hospital because you have no insurance and released with zero pain meds.

Does anyone have any contacts with newscasters, tv stations, or anyone of importance that can help my brother????

My brother was burned over 60% of his body in Nashville 5 days ago. Because he has no Insurance and ObamaCare doesn’t really actually work, he was released, forced out of hospital, after 3 days and no pain meds. He is in excruciating pain and needs pain meds. Should be re-admitted. He is in Nashville. Please give feedback. Any at all will help. Thinking if a tv station did a story about him, he’d get re-admitted. He was released from Vanderbilt burn center….. After only 3 days! He has been sitting in lobby for 2 hrs this morning asking for pain meds but has been ignored. I am now on a mission to help.

After a LOT of shares via social media, on the 30th Jana commented:

Some good news today after our let down yesterday. Vanderbilt burn center called my brother and asked him to come in. They cleaned the burns/wounds and re-bandaged him and had him there for hours. They also gave him a script for a weeks worth of a strong pain killer to match the pain he is in!

The Federal Government cannot micromanage and nowhere is that made clearer than with ObamaCare.

On July 1st, she also commented:

Vanderbilt interventional pain clinic has accepted my brother into their program to treat him and he is now getting exceptional treatment from them. Thank you Vanderbilt for stepping up! All the posts and shares have worked and helped! So grateful that spreading the word has brought him the care he needed and deserved!

This whole mess would have been solved if we did not have the federal government messing around where they do not belong. We have watched the quality of healthcare deteriorate for years now under ObamaCare and the prices go up!

Just let the Doctors be Doctors. The ObamaCare horror stories are rampant and the warnings were made before!

[VIDEO] Governor Kasich Calls Good Cop an IDIOT then LIES! This Will Make You FURIOUS!

Published

on

Kasich gets a citation for “improper passing” of an emergency vehicle for not moving over for a police officer stopped on the side of the road.

At the time (January 2008) he was a Managing Director with Lehman Brothers. Yes, this is an old story, but an important one. Very few know about this abomination.

Sheriff David Clarke was on it during the election:

But the story does not stop there:

Kasich is an IDIOT! There!!! I said it!!! (Insert Mark Levin’s Voice)!

The video of this traffic stop, where John Kasich did not yield to the situation on the side of the highway as he passed a fully lighted traffic stop, AND his remarks after, will make you FURIOUS!

The officer in Columbus, Ohio was kind, professional, and doing his job completely within protocol.

In fact, this LEO did an EXCEPTIONAL job of handling the situation correctly!

10 days later,  Kasich bad mouths him in front of the Ohio EPA workers, LYING like a CHILD!!! The whole tale is caught on camera!

We definitely have a serious problem with a few in law enforcement, abusing their position, and affecting the overwhelming majority that proudly serve well.

To demean one of America’s bravest, with blatant lies…is HORRIFIC! This fine officer is DEFINITELY not one of the bad guys!

Watch the video, and then we will discuss it!

The video begins with a speech that Kasich gave 10 days after the stop, as he addresses a group of Ohio EPA workers.

“I had this IDIOT, pull me over on highway 315,” Kasich begins…

Then Kasich proceeds to explain how this fine law enforcement officer explained that the reason was a failure to yield.

Kasich LIES again, explaining, as he did to the cop in the dashcam video, that he had not seen the blaring lights on the side of the road!

DID NOT SEE IT? Lying again. How could you miss it? Now, in all fairness, Kasich might have not seen it…

…BECAUSE he was not paying attention to his driving!!

THAT would be more dangerous than not yielding!!

Ask yourself this question. “Have I ever NOT seen the blaring flashing lights of an emergency vehicle a mile away, let alone when right on the situation?”

Of course not!! You CAN’T miss it!!! Everyone else saw them! No one else missed it! Everyone else yielded! …again caught on the dash cam!

After Kasich tells the story to the audience, he again claims that this fine LEO, “Is and idiot!”

NOOOOO! YOU Sir, are the IDIOT, and a LYING IDIOT at that!

Shameful!

I used to respect you. You have slowly destroyed that this primary season. This video destroyed any ounce I had left!

There! I said it! John Richard Kasich is an IDIOT!
