Default Repeal Obamacare, No Hurry by congress. But it will still fail.

I read this morning that Humana is pulling out of the exchanges. Several other insurers also plan on leaving the system
It will implode on it's own. But repeal is still necessary to get it's overbearing rules out of the Health Care System.

Congress seems content to slow walk the process. Chicken sh!t Republicans still worry they will offend somebody.

Ho hum.

"There’s no way to unwind this horrible, imploding law without making people unhappy.

Donald Trump may have realized that."

JUST DO IT!
President Donald will just have to.

And he may already have done so. The IRS mandate is now "optional?"

How hard is it to grasp the idea that insurers see an opportunity for more profits? The right has not put forth a plan that controls rates. They have not done a thing to address drug costs. They will offer people who have no savings an opportunity for a health savings account but do nothing to control the beast. When will we wise up and go single payer and stop the stupidity. s

I've asked a couple or 100 times what the left's proposal is. Never got an answer. Do you have one?

Premiums have doubled, Doctors are turning away patients, insurers are abandoning Health Care altogether.
The system is collapsing.

How hard is it to understand that the Affordable care Act is not affordable?

Everyone I know that has it are happier than without it. Premiums have not doubled but they would have more than doubled at the rate they were rising before the ACA

So we will go back to lying to people and leaving them screwed just so we can say we defeated Obamacare.

Behold the product of cowering behind the ignore list, continuing ignorance. Insurers bail out of Obamacare but they are foregoing a subsidized market to make more profits. it's just easier to demogogue.

Democrats rejected single payer in favor of Obamacare, only Democrats voted for it. But to the King of the Ignore List it's still a politically viable idea.

At least you said 'go back to lying to people...' you finally acknowledge that the PPACA was built on nothing but lies.

Oh, yes, repealing the PPACA will 'screw' people. While 'un-screwing' other people. Compare the ratios, after all, we want to help the greater portion, yes?

You are so stuck on a front-loaded payment mechanism, that you haven't figured out that someone has to pay for it.......
