  1. A lot of insurance companies pushed hard for Obamacare in 2009. A few years later they were pushing hard to get out of it or dump it altogether. Now this. I’d say they might just be reaping what they’re sowing.

    Let’s face it: These guys haven’t a clue how insurance works. Democratic Congressmen didn’t either but they held hearings for months and got tons of input from health insurers, doctors, hospitals, and the drug companies when they crafted ACA. These Republican bills are like a Science Fair project a student tried to fake the night before.

    Any version so far would be a disaster, killing about 25,000 people every year, not counting the Congressmen who get killed by grieving husbands and fathers after their health insurance nightmare ends in death.

    Yea “McConnell and top Trump administration officials plan to spend the next few days cajoling senators and home-state governors in an effort to nail down support for the bill.” Republicans again trying to force the passage of a health care bill that even the the insurance industry says won’t work. How much more do Republicans need to hear to understand that their bill(s) and approach to health care is not going to work, that people will suffer, and many will die because they can not get Insurance and those who can will pay higher rates. Republican affordable health care just another lie tax break for the wealthy, the 1%.

    If memory serves, the insurance industry did not oppose the Obamacare (Affordable Care Act), maybe because they were involved in crafting a bill that would work, if allowed to.
