Pence Warns Republicans Not to Oppose Obamacare Plan

All these years to plan something different and they come up with legislation that preserves many features of Obamacare. It’s political. They should call it the GOP Majority Protection Act.

Vice President Mike Pence warned Republicans in a closed-door meeting Tuesday not to oppose the GOP plan to repeal Obamacare, and said voting against it would be a vote in favor of Obamacare.

“If you like your Obamacare you can keep it,” Pence told Republicans at a closed-door meeting Tuesday. “But the American people want change.”

Pence was sent to Capitol Hill just hours after Republicans released their proposed bill, which drew immediate complaints from Republicans who are pushing for a full repeal of the law. Some called the GOP plan “Obamacare Lite.”

  1. “They should call it the GOP Majority Protection Act.” HA. Good one Keith.

    Hmmm. Interesting. Assume Pence speaks for Trump in support of this OC Lite.

    Trump has not been around the track with these GOPe like we have. With them, this may not be incremental. This may be their whole deal.

    My read was that Trump wanted to go further and this was as far as Ryan, the weasel, was willing to go. OTH, maybe Trump is on board. If so, disappointing.

  2. I have had a very horrible string of experiences with ObummerCare (aka: HillaryCare), and I can tell you that it STINKS. This is not about Trump, this is about We The People, and we want this NIGHTMARE to END. The Republicans had better “get with the program”, OR ELSE.

    • I agree.
      Stay on track with the team or on the bench you go.
      See, I think Repb’s haven’t been in power so long they don’t know how to use it.
      I gotta admit, the Dem’s know how to and they apply it ruthlessly.

  3. Tinkering just won’t do. 99.9% of ObamaCare was just plain wrong. Put this dog out of its misery. And don’t buy a new one.
    Surely there is a way the government can keep their noses out of the health insurance industry.
    What happened to creating a law that enables people to buy insurance across state lines in order to open up competition? Why does that idea need a government plan?
    I like the idea of scrapping the individual mandate, and putting in place a penalty or maybe even a waiting period so people cannot purchase insurance for one expensive procedure and then drop it afterwards.
    I like the idea of being able to purchase insurance through your professional organization.
    I like the idea of being able to claim your insurance premiums on your taxes if you cannot get insurance and/or pre-tax premiums through your employer.
    I like the idea of dropping the employer mandate.
    Medicaid is in place for low income people. Why does another plan need to be put into place for them?
    Medicare takes care of seniors. What is the problem there?
    I guess my biggest complaint is that the government has to be involved in this at all.

  4. This bill is crap. Buying insurance across state lines and torte reform are the only 2 things that will fix this sinking hot mess!
    Sowing the seeds of destruction in ’18 for the GOP if not changed.
