Obama on Senate bill: It's 'not a health care bill'

Quote:



Barack Obama on Thursday spoke out against a proposed GOP Senate bill that dismantles the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

"I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote in a Facebook post. "Still, I hope that our Senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what's really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did."

As Obamacare crashes and burns all around us. Neither the Ryan nor the McConnell plan is worth the time.

ObamaCare is still the best politically feasible plan available.
The GOP plan is a nightmare.
Which is why the GOP plan does nothing until a couple of elections down the road.

People didn't vote to repeal ObamaCare, they voted for better coverage and lower premiums.

People voted to be rid of Obamacare, but this is not repeal and replace.

Obimbo's only claim to any kind of legacy was the ACA. Nothing else! It, and all mention of him should be removed from the history books. He's earned his place on the dust heap of worthless presidents.

If it removes the mandate to purchase insurance then it is a repeal and replace. Obamacare was all about the mandate forcing people to participate.

Sorry but it sucks and the very idea of forcing people under penalty to purchase something is horrible.

Oh, it's not the best, it does little to control cost, but it's better than the GOP bill.
Far better to pay for medical care through taxes.
Much more efficient

Obama care is horrible and you know it. Its going bust. Many states with no insurance companies participating or just one. It is falling apart as we speak. It was well know from the start it would fall apart too.

Frankly I do not understand why on earth I would not be allowed to engage any insurance company I want and buy whatever product I wish to.
