The GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
Today, the future could be somewhat bright for the Donald Trump administration should the so-called Obamacare repeal and replacement legislation be approved by the House of Representatives.
At the time of this writing, the legislation might not be on its deathbed, but, it’s certainly in intensive care.
The White House said, Monday, that it needs more time to look for evidence of Obama bugs in Trump Tower during the 2016 election campaign, and to determine if the President needs to say anything more about his unsubstantiated charges against Obama.
The politics related to healthcare is taking shape. Now that President Donald Trump appears to be backing the House Republican health care plan, various politicians and government officials are staking out positions. Here is a statement from Democrat New Orleans Mayor, Mitch Landrieu.
How has Republican President Donald Trump performed during his first week in office in the Oval Office?
This is a question that certainly has been asked around the world.
On Sunday, former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal penned an oped that appeared in Politico. The subject? Repealing Obamacare.
Jindal has often considered himself to be an authority on healthcare, having previously served as governor of Louisiana, member of Congress and assistant secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services.
Obamacare repeal, without replacement, might soon be a reality.
The GOP and President-elect Donald Trump appear to be focused on repealing the health care law with the promise of replacing, but, the uncertainty of what and when would be taking over for the now, almost-terminal revolutionary legislation, is obvious.
Congress is in session and Obamacare repeal is on the table. The big question is whether that table is for surgery or if the repeal and replace is being tabled to another time.
The Democratic-leaning The Daily Dime has presented its own reasons for not doing damage to Obamacare, or, the Affordable Care Act.
Remember the old knock on presidential candidate John Kerry back in the 2004 presidential election? “I was for it before I was against it.” Today, about the single worst charge that can be made against any conservative Republican politician is that they support Obamacare. President-Elect Trump said during the recent campaign that his first act would be to abolish Obamacare. And the key component is requiring every citizen to buy health insurance.
In its final Southern Media Opinion and Research poll of 2016, Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy holds a significant 14-point lead over his Democratic Party opponent Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell, Kennedy leads Campbell 52% to 38%.
One of the reasons for the Kennedy lead, according to Bernie Pinsonat of SMOR, is government has a spending problem not a revenue problem and Louisiana apparently applies that concept to national government too.
