Typical member of the jackass party. Use a cowardly political tactic for centuries and then attempt to do away with that same tactic when you think the other side is using it.

Key Senate Republicans Offer Their Plan To Replace Obamacare
by JULIE ROVNER
January 27, 2014 5:25 PM ET
Republicans have offered a wide array of proposals to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act since it became law in 2010. But few have come with the pedigree of the plan just unveiled by a trio of senior Senate Republicans.
The Patient Choice, Affordability, Responsibility and Empowerment Act, or CARE for short, is a proposal being floated by Sens. Richard Burr, R-N.C., Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Tom Coburn, R-Okla.
Hatch is the senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee; Burr is on the health subcommittee of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee; Coburn is a physician. All three have spent much or all of their legislative careers working on health policy.
"Obamacare just isn't working," Hatch said on the Senate floor Monday afternoon. "Try as he might during tomorrow night's State of the Union address, President Obama will not be able to convince the American people that his health care law is anything other than an unmitigated disaster."
At a briefing for health reporters, aides to the senators said the goal of their proposal is to focus on bringing down costs. Hence the plan would repeal the ACA's requirements that most people have insurance, as well as requirements that insurers offer minimum benefits and employers offer insurance or face potential fines.
The Republican proposal also would eliminate most of the taxes and fees that the law imposes to pay for the generous tax credits offered to help people pay for the required insurance.
And the plan would repeal the requirement that insurers cover people with pre-existing health conditions, although people who remain "continuously covered" for at least 18 months could not be denied or charged more. And while the plan would keep the ACA's ban on insurers' imposing a lifetime limit on insurance benefits, annual limits could return.
The GOP plan offers its own set of tax credits to help those with lower incomes afford coverage, and like those in the ACA, they would be adjusted for age but not for geography. That means the tax credit would be the same across the nation, even though insurance costs differ widely in different parts of the country.
Susan and Jack Cooper of Richardson, Texas, demonstrate against the government shutdown in Dallas this month.

How The GOP's Shutdown Over Obamacare Fell Short
The tax credits also would be available to those earning up to three times the federal poverty line, or $34,470 in 2013. That's less than in the ACA, which provides help for those earning up to four times the poverty level, or $45,960.
The GOP plan also would let insurers charge older people more than the ACA does, which could lower premiums for younger people. The ACA limits premium differences for older people to three times more than those for young people; the GOP proposal would allow premiums for older people to be as much as five times higher, although states could opt for different "age rating," staffers said.
The proposal would leave the Medicare provisions of the health law untouched ("this is not about Medicare," said one of the aides). But it would dramatically remake the Medicaid program, which is undergoing a big expansion as a result of the ACA.
It all seemed so easy then. Back in June, the Supreme Court declared the Affordable Care Act constitutional. Waiting for that decision may have cost the administration precious time.

So, what does it cost?

Hw does a family that just lost its income afford to buy health insurance as an individual?

What makes you think issuing tax credits is not spending money?

So Republicans would want an older couple to pay $3500/yr - up to 5 times as much.

Good bye early retirement.

How was it funded again?

You have a habit of making dumb allegations.

It's how they get paid. DUH

Now go look up the meaning of perjury and bang your head against the

By putting a persons slant or views on something isn't perjury. They had General Petraeus for a while that is until he started saying things that they didn't want to hear. Oliver North was another that sang their songs.That's pretty much all they are looking for. The facts, the truth and reality aren't welcome there.They never listened or show interest in the Generals that offered suggestion on Iraq or Aftghanistan.

No, unlike most republicans I don't believe industry will police itself and do what is right. You have to force them to practice safe processes.
my point was that in liberal states, controlled by Democrats, we are intelligent enough to realize that thte only thing industrial leaders care about is maximizing profits even at the expense of workers
that can be done. but denying that CA uses a vast amount of our oil and gas and won't allow any new refineries is somewhat hypocritical isn't it?

your simplistic view ow industry leaders is not entirely accurate.

Just like everything else, the majority of the science is done honestly. There are those who are unethical & some paid off by industry.

Climategate was debunked. Who has the most to lose? The fossil fuel industry. The people who support the ones you believe.

Yes, man has increased the CO2 in the atmosphere to the point is has an effect on our climate.

This is fact.

What the future bring never is 100% accurate.

At what % of certainty would a dumbass right whiner like you actually do something? 30% 50%? 70% 90%

At what point do you toss your politics side & do something protect future generations.

Because a house or a car are expendable. If you total a 1985 Ford Taurus, no one is going to try and resuscitate it or try to give it another 20 years of life. If a house burns down, you just rebuild it. No one tries to resuscitate the ashes. Can't do that with human lives.

The difference was that Democrats did not utilize these attacks as political fodder.

There was neer a cover up of an attack. You are truly dumber than sh*t.

anybody see President Obama send his troops into battle without enough strength to do the job, with inadequate armor, against the advice of his Generals and let a bunch of civilians with no combat experience, actually with no military experience run the war and mismanage the peace?
the vetting process for the provisional gov't in Baghdad was great. they asked who they voted for and what their religious views were....

my favorite was the military personnel talking about meeting with the kids supposed to run the prison system. they seemed young so they asked what experience they had, and they said this was their first job out of college. "how many on your team" , they asked.

"just the four of us" they responded," but we were frat brothers, so were tight..."

you can't make up shit that funny!

How many hearing so far over 30 and absolutely no evidence of lies, only in idiots like you and their sick minds.Listen lightweight, Bush-Cheney were the two biggest liars ever. Hell Iraq alone [which was based on pure lies] 4,500 dead, another 30 thousand injured and countless psychological damage from being forced to do 3-4-5 tours all because of oil and revenge for his "deddy". He and Cheney both belong in Leavenworth until they die a slow death. By the way i'm sure you were to cowardly to serve. Moonbat.
