RSC Chairman: 'We're Not Done' Until Obamacare Alternative Hits House Floor

Mar 17, 2014 Full story: Roll Call 17

House GOP leadership intends to put forward a formal framework for repealing and replacing Obamacare, but has so far stopped short of promising to turn that framework into actual legislative text.

More Republican budget bursting concepts while gutting medicare and limits put on patient award damages.
These fleas are incapable of new ideas. It's the same yired rhetoric and stale principles.
ACA is the only GOP health plan. It has alwats been their market approach.

Democrats already cut all that can be cut from Medicare, something like half a billion dollars. Republicans will put forth a substitute for Obamascam, but they won't attempt to vote on it until the new Congress is seated in January. I bet the Republicans won't be stupid enough to take away your insurance if you want to keep it, and I bet you will be able to keep your doctor. They are not going to be as stupid as the Democrats.

Exactly what I said would happen.

"'We're Not Done' Until Obamacare Alternative Hits House Floor"

That says everything. For those that want it repealed, the Republicans are going to do with it exactly what the Democrats did with the Patriot Act. By making it even more intrusive and then slapping their name on it.

And the people? They will swallow it faster than a 15yr old Tracy Lords. Why? Because the people have no integrity, no values, no self respect, no personal dignity, no strength.

While I don't agree that not wanting to pay $1000+ a month for top-tier health care is some kind of moral failing on the part of Americans, the 1st 1/2 of your post is absolutely spot on.

Not wanting to or not being able to? As the asshat on Faux Financial said, maybe people should just stop being poor.

Did not want our old insurance plan, waiting on refund, signed on for new insurance plan with savings and we keep our doctor.

Yes, Dear we know. We heard that before. You seem to be the only one that isn't telling some kind of Obamascam horror story. That is what makes it so difficult to believe you are telling the whole truth.

A GOP leadership aide told CQ Roll Call on Monday that the goal is, and always has been, putting either one bill or a package of bills on the floor by the year’s end, but the first item of business is establishing consensus from within the rank-and-file on how to proceed.

Year's End? Very funny!

The racist blustering from the Fascist Right will, as usual, amount to nothing.

The ACA is staying in place, and is the law of the land. The Reich has no plan, other than repealing what they pejoratively call "Obamacare" and intent to replace it with nothing.

We need to insist on health care coverage as a birthright, not subjected to the whims of the Republican corporate elite. We need a government run option to the ACA, and must work toward that goal.

The Republicans cannot get anything through, and into law until they become the majority in the Senate. That isn't until January. So why put a bill on the floor Reid will just ignore? That doesn't make sense. It is a waste of time. They will get no cooperation from the Democrats.

14 million subscribers for Obamascam. Really? The number is closer to 4 million, and most of them have not paid their premiums. It is a scam. So what if no one signs up my the deadline, what can be done about it? We don't have the jail cells to fill with late enrollees. Hundreds of thousands of the people are being put on Medicaid. Illinois has its own Exchange.
