It is disgusting that GOP Senators will not use the nuclear option to repeal the entire ACA and allow the market to compete for each individual’s healthcare needs. The GOP knows that the Dems have chose party and ideology over the needs and interests of their constituents. What the hell is so hard about blocking Medicaid with a work mandate to the states, removing the taxes, allowing choice and competition across state lines for insurance and drugs to lower costs and provide better service to our people? What is wrong with our Senators? Conservatives need to remember that after tax replacement , there will be good paying jobs created and America will be fully employed. With that full employment, employers will compete for employees by providing healthcare benefits. That will reduce the Medicaid rolls. People who use the ACA will jump on a health care product the fits their needs. Just give them a year to transition. Having the Medicaid increase fight, is just stupid. Let the big government establishment have their increase. Medicaid will not use it. The goal is getting our people off government welfare and giving all Americans the tools and opportunity to pursue their American Dream and be independent productive citizens. . 40 million Medicaid users and 43 million Food Stamp users is obscene. We are Americans. This should not be. Add a one percent income tax to pay for the high risk pool/preexisting condition subsidy. Keep the income tax deduction for individuals who make under $150,000. Keep the Medicaid tax to pay for Medicaid. . Just get it done. Stop worrying about your next election and donors, Congress. Make good on your promises and we will vote for you, without your big donors, without Big Pharma and insurance money.
Senators, Repeal and Replace the ACA today. The President has given you momentum. Don’t squander it. Income tax Replacement and a balanced budget are next. Don’t lose your momentum. This opportunity to reduce, reform and reorganize our government will not come again. This opportunity to start draining the swamp of corruption, incompetence, waste, fraud and cronyism will not come again. Save this Republic, please.
