    Trumpcare

    For one party to take control of the White House, House, Senate and Supreme Court in America doesn't ocur very often and usually for only a 2 year term!

    Faced with Trump and his Cabinet's lack of political experience and his erratic behaviour, some Republicans in the Congress must be "tearing their hair out" for having frittered away 40 days of valuable time before starting to tackle the big ticket items on their legislative agenda!

    Repealing and replacing "Obamacare" seems like a strange place to start - given that it is probably the most complex of all legislation to enact, while generating the least amount of general consensus within the Party on how to proceed.

    One would have thought that introducing the infrastructure/jobs package would have had more of an immediate impact and generated far more approval from their base.

    Republicans could just let Obamacare fall into a death spiral and let millions of Americans suffer or they could do what they are doing now which is repealing and replacing before a death spiral takes place

    the partial replacement bill is pretty good but there are a lot rebulicans that want to end the Obamacare subsides using a cold turkey approach and others that want to grandfather in these subsides. another point of contention is the use of means tested refundable tax credit to entice both poor and healthy into buying insurance vs tax deductions with more use of high risk pools at the state level.

    That's the conservative narrative but the reality is the Republicans don't have enough votes to replace Obamacare with this or any other plan.

    Moderate Republicans won't support the future cuts in Medicaid for their state and the right-wing of the party, who oppose all state involvement in healthcare on philosophical grounds, refuse to vote for "Obamacare Light!"

    If the Republicans show that they can only repeal, but not replace Obamacare, despite having control of the White House, Senate and House, why should they expect American voters to provide support for more of the same in the 2018 Midterms?

    Hog wash.

    Once the Illegal immigrants are deported there will be plenty of Medicaid for poor legitimate Americans.

    Since it's inception no Republican controlled government has completely done away with Medicaid.

    Knock off the Leftist lying scare tactics.

    IF?

    Simply wishful fantasy on your part.

    Since the demoncrats have offered nothing good and they have done nothing in Congress, why would anyone vote demoncrat in 18 or 20. The left simply cries and whines and lies, not conducive to getting elected. They will spend 4 years blocking and obstructing Trump and have nothing to run on.
