GOP Health Care Bill in Limbo After Another Republican Senator's Support Waivers

There are 14 comments on the Time story from Sep 24, 2017, titled GOP Health Care Bill in Limbo After Another Republican Senator's Support Waivers. In it, Time reports that:

Sen. Susan Collins on Sunday all but closed the door to supporting last-ditch Republican health care bill, leaving her party's drive to uproot President Barack Obama's health care law dangling by an increasingly slender thread. Already two GOP senators, Rand Paul of Kentucky and John McCain of Arizona, have said they would vote against the legislation, and if Collins, a Maine moderate, were to join them, the bill would die.

Finally, we get to keep obamacare where insurance premiums are stable, you get to decide what doctor to see and every family saves $2,500 a year.

Nope, time for a bipartisan solution or a socialized medical program.

Up to the GOP to decide which way to go from here.

Either repeal it or let the Democrat's Obamacare bill fail on its own and go back to the way it was. Republicans don't have a replacement plan. Go back to the way it was and add some free market competition as far as insurance and drugs go. Mandate hospitals to list their prices for rooms, doctors and drugs so we can get away from the free for all billing the hospitals currently have. Hospitals are robbing patients blind. 10 people who get the same treatment should pay the same bill.

Yes, Massachusetts did figure it out years ago with a REPUBLICAN Governor.

And it could work for all states if companies were not allowed to behave like greedy jerks.

Our biggest problem with the healthcare system is that for-profit cannot work when dealing compassionately with sick and injured people.

For-profit ruins any objectivity in medical research.

Too many treatments will not be tested because they will not make certain greedy scumbags wealthy. Easy inexpensive treatments to serious diseases are not being developed as a result.

Other treatments that are marginally effective or sometimes no better than chance are manipulated to seem effective in order to promote for high profits.

Since Corporations are greedy jerks, it is time to go to a national system that is not based on profit.

If you are only in the healthcare system to make a profit, it is time to get out.

It's free market competition now if you don't have to depend on government subsidies to pay for comprehensive insurance coverage.

You're not in support of government establishing the pricing for your business but you propose the government establish pricing for hospitals?

You're a tried and true socislist.

Any healthcare bill should make sure non citizens get nothing. This is just another one of the many areas where illegal aliens and immigrant freeloaders are robbing this country. Time for them to get out

The bill sponsored by Republican Senators Lindsey Graham, Bill Cassidy, Dean Heller and Ron Johnson eliminates both the health insurance mandate for individuals and employers. It repeals both the expansion of Medicaid and tax credits for people that buy insurance on the individual market.

The bill provides block grants to states but cuts the total amount of money available to states. There is little doubt that many people that currently have healthcare will lose it.

That's the Republican objective. Throw the poor , especially the working class poor families out into the cold.

To provide tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans with any savings.
