Libtards across America are rejoicing over the news of what they call ‘TRUMPCARE’ being denied when passed through Congress.
Memes such as this one are rotting our timelines..and brains:
How strange, that Congressional ‘Republicans’ were so quick to repeal parts of Obamacare when Barack Obama was president, yet now in the midst of the undeniable countless scandals in the political world, there’s a sudden hold up.
Unfortunately, the AHCA turned out to be nothing more than the very same Obamacare…with just a few adjustments.
Daniel Horowitz summed up the problem in Conservative Review:
“the sum of the GOP plan is to take everything that is bad about Obamacare — taxes, regulations, subsidies, and mandates — and leave the critical structure in place, albeit with some policy tweaks around the edges.”
Here’s the kicker: Most of the opposition to the bill wasn’t for being too liberal. It was for being too CONSERVATIVE.
As Unbiased America noted:
The vast majority of opposition to Paul Ryan’s healthcare bill was from representatives who thought it was too conservative (i.e. it went too far in reducing subsidies), including 193 Democrats and at least 6 Republicans. Only about 18 representatives, all Republican, opposed it because it was too liberal (i.e. it didn’t go far enough in repealing Obamacare).
That should tell you all you need to know about the unfortunate direction we are now headed with healthcare in America. It means that when Obamacare fails, its replacement bill will have to be even MORE liberal than Ryan’s bill in order to get the votes needed to pass.
Regardless, we can still we can be thankful for those in the House Freedom Caucus with some sort of brain for blocking the bill on the grounds that it was an Obamacare revision, not a replacement.
Whether or not an actual Obamacare repeal and replacement gets passed in the future lies in their hands.
