House Passes Revised American Health Care Act


Breaking: The House Passes the revised American Health Care Act.

After a lot of flack against the new revised American Health Care Act from republicans because of it not covering patients with pre-existing conditions, it has now been passed. They came to an agreement after GOP leaders agreed to add $8 billion dollars to cover patients with pre-existing conditions.

From Breitbart:

The vote comes after a tumultuous process for the bill, which has seen previously scheduled votes pulled after Speaker Paul Ryan failed to accumulate enough Republican support. Speaker Ryan received widespread criticism after drafting the bill in secret and retaining many parts of Obamacare. Pundits dubbed the original bill, “Ryancare.”

House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) stepped up and brokered a revised version of the bill, known as the MacArthur amendment, along with Tuesday Group co-chairman Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ). The addition of the amendment collected enough Republican votes to pass the bill.

Meadows’ efforts in no small part seem to have succeeded where Ryan failed, rallying his House Republican colleagues behind a years-long campaign promise to repeal and replace Obamacare–despite the fact that this bill does not constitute a full repeal of the previous president’s signature.

Need to get the government out of healthcare. And have politicians use the same system as everyone else. Health insurance needs to function like car insurance. Rand Paul’s excellent healthcare plan was a better idea, but didn’t have enough votes. Not a single republican voted for Obamacare. Democrats lost a lot of seats shortly after Obamacare passed. Take time to craft something better, let Obamacare collapse, then replace it. And get doctors’ wages under control.
