CONGRESS’S ELECTILE DYSFUNTION ON REPEALING ACA “AKA OBAMACARE”

Either repeal Obamacare in full and start over or sit down and shut up. No More lying to the American people.

Every Republican including the President that ran for election or re-election in the 2016 promised to repeal Obamacare, now we know they have no intention of keeping their promise.
Reports are that the Paul Ryan proposal WILL NOT repeal Obamacare in full, the new version of the ACA is a watered down version of Obamacare.
The Republican have had 7 (seven years) to implement a plan, in 2015 they sent to then President Obama a full repeal and it was vetoed. Of course they knew it would not be signed, however if gave them talking points to campaign on. be
Reported-The New American Health Care Act is not much different from the one that was pulled from being voted on. The new bill still lets special interests line their pockets with billions of dollars while sticking ordinary Americans with huge premium hikes.
The bill includes an "age tax" that would force Americans age 50 to 64 to pay thousands more for health care. It weakens Medicare and could open the door to turning the program into a voucher system, cutting benefits for those who can least afford it. It would even let insurance companies discriminate against people with preexisting conditions like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Between the age tax and the premium hikes low and middle income Americans could be forced to pay a total of $13,000 more just to keep their same coverage.
Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa. still opposes the bill it does not meet his key concerns. After noting that he hasn’t seen any legislative language, Dent said, “Based on what I’ve read, it does not change my position. I was a no, and I remain a no.”

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), another Freedom Caucus member, stopped short of vouching support for the bill, but said “it seems to me it is going in a very good direction.” He said he needs to see the legislative text before making a final decision.
