Here we go again. Who can you believe when it comes to the Republican’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, officially the Affordable Care Act?
House Speaker Paul Ryan says despite what his more conservative Republicans say, the plan fixes Obamacare and has the best chance of being approved in Congress.
The conservatives say the GOP plan does not repeal Obamacare but keeps some of it around and they say the plan isn’t good enough and say there is no way this plan will pass.
Then the Congressional Budget Office which is described as independent nonpartisan comes out with its analysis and their report says 14 million Americans will lose their health insurance next year if the Republican plan were to become law.
Then the U.S. Health Secretary comes out and says the congressional Budget Office report is wrong.
And then President Trump, who promised during the campaign that he would repeal and replace Obamacare and that more people would be covered and then tweets this week that Republicans are coming together to get a health care plan done.
At the same time, Democrats in Congress, even some who admit Obamacare needs some fixing, say the Republican plan stinks and they will do everything they can do to block it.
Meantime, at all those town hall meetings, voters all say they want is a good health care plan that works.
Now if all the politicians can learn how to work together. Otherwise they may decide to repeal and replace all of them.
