Now that our GOP controlled Congress has fumbled and lost its attempt to repeal and immediately replace Obamacare, President Trump is telling them to just repeal it.
While a vote to repeal was successful in 2015, that was when all the Congress people who voted for it knew that Obama would veto, so they had nothing to lose. They only cared to show out for their constituents, about how they voted to repeal.
And isn’t that the problem, ya’ll? Our Congress people only seem to care about saving their own a$$e$, don’t they? They do what they need to do to save their jobs, and their very good healthcare!! And I’m, for one, disgusted by that!
So while Trump tells Congress to just repeal Obamacare, what happens if they can’t even do that?
Then Obamacare remains, and we have to trust our Congress people to either make it work, or let it die. Somehow, I’m not feeling very trusting.
According to CNN, “[t]he number of insurers filing initial applications on the federal marketplace dropped 38% for 2018, the Trump administration announced earlier this month. Just over 25,000 people in 38 counties in Ohio, Indiana and Nevada are at risk of having no options on the exchange next year, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.”
If Congress fails to even repeal Obamacare, and I certainly have no confidence that our Congress is competent to do much of anything right now, what then?
Mitch McConnell has said: “If my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to the private health insurance market must occur,” and “No action is not an alternative. We’ve got the insurance markets imploding all over the country, including in this state.”
All I can say is, call your representatives. And SHARE!
