Secretary of Health and Human Services Senate101 proposes Freedom of Healthcare Choice Act
Vetoed, as many here have mentioned before this would serve to reverse the reforms implemented by the Affordable Care Act
Nay. This will cause a death spiral.
Nay. I do not see how this wouldn't cripple and undermine the ACA entirely.
Hasn't that already been repealed?
no it was reinstated about 5-6 months ago
This is why we can't have nice things...
Universal coverage of pre existing conditions cannot work without maximum participation. Otherwise you send insurance into a death spiral
Nay, normally I'd support such a bill, but if we're going to be stuck with Obamacare, let's not send it on a suicide run.
I support parts of the affordable care act. I support the intent to bring healthcare for those who cannot afford it. It is a basic right. But I do not believe that people who opt out of healthcare should be punished for doing so. Fining citizens for exercising their freedoms is a sad dictatorial overreach of government power.
Nay, how about instead of "destroying it". Propose some real healthcare reforms of your own.
Amendment: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is hereby repealed.
Yes - now this is even better.
Nay - if we're going to have Obamacare let's make it work somewhat.
It's incapable of working
True but repealing this one provision will drive it into the ground.
This way the rich won't sign up for Obamacare and then one of two things will happen -
1. Taxes go up.
2. Our debt will go up.
ACA is a lot better under VC. We have state border free healthcare options so that would help lower costs. We've done some other liberal and conservative reforms as well.
That's great but this bill would destroy it.
that's what i meant to say, like why destroy it at this point
I hope that we have already repealed such disastrous legislation.
no obamacare is law in vc
Then let's repeal that junk!
Propose it as a bill political, but you need to have a good replacement.
The free market is a great alternative.
Yeah, except that it's not. Look up medical loss ratio and look up what happened when Aetna tried changing theirs minutely. Wall Street is a stronger force in their decisions than insurance buyers.
Look up how much people's deductibles have increased under the Unaffordable healthcare act. In addition, people have been denied healthcare plans because we have a lie in chief. This President only cares about furthering his agenda at the expense of the American people.
Actually the number of people who pay more are slightly less than number of people who pay less.
The free market has consistently failed to provide adequate care for everyone. This is because they must spend under a certain percentage of profits on healthcare or their stocks plummet. They are beholden to Wall Street - the free market is nearly irrelevant in their decisions.
The beauty of the free market is that you have choices. Under Obamacare, you don't have but 4 options.
Don't you just love it when people don't buy into the nanny state?
Of course you have a choice - you can buy your own healthcare.
I think choice is a great thing, but it has side effects b
propose legislation!! 1drv.ms/1lD0MCb
Freedom of Healthcare Choice Act
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is amended by striking out the provisions penalizing those who can afford healthcare but do not chose to pay the monthly fee.
