Well what do you know Trumps newspaper is telling people the truth about the GOP health care bill.

They say that the poor whites who voted for Trump get the shaft in the bill in other words their insurance will go way up and the GOP bill will give them much less of a subsidy than Obamacare…

Of course we who know the nature of the GOP knew this was the case all along and that Trump and the GOP congress would try to deceive and lie to the same people who voted for Trump.

Recall Trump promised to repeal and replace Obamacare with a better plan.

Even Trump’s ardent supporters from Breitbart see through this GOP flimsy replacement.

I guess the figure that if they could fool them once they can fool them again.



Breitbart News is upping its attack on House Republicans’ healthcare proposal
The far-right news website that has long backed President Trump has published a series of articles this week highlighting perceived negative aspects of House GOP leaders' proposal to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
Breitbart has been far from supportive of the Affordable Care Act, which the GOP is seeking to repeal and replace. But its coverage of Republicans' proposal — the American Health Care Act, which Trump has supported — has remained largely critical.

As a disclaimer I'm not a trump fan, but I doubt brietbart has turned on him..

Instead it might be him attempting to pressure the GOP crazies to keep the subsidies...

Being real, trump doesn't care about the debt.. he cares about being remembered as a successful president. However most of the GOP are bought and paid for shills doing the biding of big pharma types.

Ultimately the health bill will be the One Trump signs.

When Trump get's it all settled out, the pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and health care providers will all come out great in the financial department....the American working man will still be stuck with outrageous bills and poor coverage.






Once again they piss on your leg and tell you it's raining.

You wanted a businessman...are you surprised that big business is being given preferential treatment? I'm not...

Time will tell but I suspect this may be a fishing expedition and the Breitbart piece was the bait .I know very little about it but had got the impression that unwinding Obama care was going to be a challenge and not very easy to do ...Its like the fear of setting in the dentists chair waiting and freaking out inside while looking at all the needles and implements of destruction laying about in the room .

Money talks and poverty walks in America.

The GOP politicians live, breath and exist for one thing: serving the rich.


At least the Democrats have tried within the context of their own flawed humanity to help the poor and poorer.


The GOP will only do what they think won’t get them thrown out.

They really hate poor people and are aghast at giving them anyhting


I hope and pray they get thrown out so the democrats can at least continue an evolution of half way decent help for the poor.


SINGLE PAYER IS THE SOLUTION but the elite health care pigs have bribed the whores in congress

You would think Trump supporters would see this by all the billionaires Trump has appointed, instead they see this as him being for the people by hiring not real politicians. LOL IDIOTS

They are there to make this world better for only one kind of people, the rich.

For a lot of people on the right they are mad about this bill for a slightly different reason.

It's not that it rewards the rich and hurts the poor that they don't like. It's the fact that it didn't repeal enough of the original ACA.

Although this sounds at least like they mention the fact that the people who voted for Trump in the first place are also going to be hurt by this because his voters are also the working poor.

I doubt he'll actually fix that though. They'll probably just come up with a good enough lie to make his voters believe it's not going to hurt them, but it will anyway.

You're right.


Trump has been programming his acolytes to lies.



They are weak people in the first place to fall for his lies and he knows their suckers and believes he can continue to deceive them all the way even unto Hell!

Obama's newspaper, the Huffington Post, used to speak poorly of OBAMACARE from time to time.

I'm afraid to say that in this case, the Breitbart contributor who wrote that OPINION PIECE is incorrect. Ignorance surrounding the American Healthcare Act is rampant. Only a scant few analyst-reporters did their homework. All the other opinion pieces are spinoffs of either the PROs or the CONs, from those few reporters who had the integrity to actually READ THE BILL.

Without knowing every detail of the bill, I would be surprised if it wasn't just as big a give-away to lobbyists as the ACA was/is.

Both the old and the almost-new do little to address healthcare costs. Big Pharma and the insurance industry like it that way.

I'm not sure what the American people have to do to get something sane through the process. I know there will be those who argue health care is a "right" and it should be "free". No one has a right to someone else's labor. That's slavery. Nothing is free, someone pays for it.

However, is it totally impossible to create an economic environment where folks can get the care the need and not go bankrupt in the process?

As a constitutional conservative, I'm still trying to find where in the Constitution the Federal government is empowered to meddle in healthcare.

I love pretty much everything about President Trump, but I am NOT a supporter of his "repeal and replace" philosophy where Obamacare is concerned.

I would repeal only.

Then I would remind Congress of what Article I and the 10th Amendment says about powers not enumerated in the Constitution being left up to the states.

Healthcare is NOT a constitutional right. We either live in a constitutional republic or we don't. The Constitution is either the prevailing legal authority or it's not.

The Supreme Court -- quite correctly in my opinion, ruled Obamacare is a tax. Under the Constitution, Congress has absolute authority to levy new taxes.

When Obama promised Obamacare was not a "tax", and that you could keep your plan and doctor, it was not only a lie, but one of the most brazen attempts at wealth confiscation in American history.

My fix for healthcare would be 100% market-based up front, with the Federal gubmint bringing up the rear.

Get government completely out of the equation other than basic oversight.

Make healthcare costs for the individual taxpayer 100% deductible pre-AGI.

Allow lenders to annuitize "healthcare loans" similar to reverse mortgages in catastrophic cases.

Incentivize the insurance industry to increase coverage and lower the cost by cutting regulation and taxes. Let the states compete for who can provide the best healthcare environment.

Here's what the Fed's can do...

Block grants to the states.

DIRECT tax credits to employers who provide coverage to their employees.

Put the FDA on a leash!

The United States didn't become the greatest nation in Human History by being Canada or some other top-heavy Alt-Socialist money pit.

We got here because we are a constitutional republic.

How long is this healthcare argument going to continue? No matter what, in the final outcome we'll still have millions of Americans without healthcare and Americans will still be paying through the nose on premiums, pharmaceutical prescriptions and medical devices!

This is what I would like to see...

A side by side comparison of a Universal Health Care plan and a Trump Care, or Obama Care, or whatever care our self absorbed representatives come up with. I think the American public have a right to see a side-by-side comparison that can be easily accessed on a government web site. I would also like to get a perspective of universal healthcare from someone that holds dual Canadian and American citizenship. What is their perspective on these two Health Care systems since they have first hand experience using both?

Wouldn't most people rather pay an increase in sales taxes or income tax so all Americans will be covered and businesses would no longer have to carry the burden of supplying healthcare coverage to their employees? Monthly premiums would be eliminated for every American. Everyone would get the same healthcare coverage. No longer would the rich or anyone else who could afford better healthcare coverage receive better or life saving treatments! While the rest of us are kicked to the curb. Instead of paying $700 or more in premiums a month on healthcare, wouldn't it be easier to have everyone contribute a small percentage so everyone has the same quality of access to healthcare??? This is really a basic human rights issue to have access to a doctor and medical treatment to preserve one's life! Considering the U.S. is always pointing at other countries for a lack of human rights issues around the world, isn't it about time they hold themselves accountable for not providing their own citizens access to healthcare? They surely wouldn't think twice of expecting our son or daughter's to sacrifice their lives for the sake of preserving our democracy!

Let the American people decide on what healthcare they want! It directly affects Americans from all walks of life. Our overpaid political representatives already get the best healthcare coverage than the constituent's they represent! How can we expect them to understand the struggles of meeting the high cost of monthly healthcare premiums and expenses? Most of them are millionaires and pay little in premiums as compared to private and underemployed individuals.

Lets get this done so we can move on to other important issues instead of arguing about the lack of healthcare coverage and the increase in premiums. I seriously don't get it. We know the U.S. has a healthcare problem, yet we don't hear the same kind of complaints about the costs and lack of healthcare coverage like we do in other countries that have realized Universal Healthcare is the only reasonable and fair alternative. Even their prescription costs are more affordable than in the U.S..

What ever happened to the idea the U.S. was the leader of the free world? We're already behind other countries on healthcare and education. What's next?

Canadians, feel free to chime in!! We need an honest assessment.

An increase in sales tax would be better than income tax IMO. The whole idea of income tax has always bothered me personally. But that's another conversation.

But income tax could bring in more than enough money with just a slight increase and since it's based on what is being spent that means the largest amounts of money would be coming from those spending the most money like businesses and giant corporations rather than those who are poor and can only afford the basics.

It would also mean it would be coming from luxury spending which just makes sense.

All I know, there's been enough argument on the high cost of Healthcare, yet our self-absorbed politicians can't seem to come up with a plan that will benefit all Americans. I really think Universal Healthcare is the way to go. Nobody should be denied healthcare based upon how much they can afford. It's the only humane and right thing to do.

Trump wants to increase funding on a war machine that kills, maims and can destroy an entire country. Our military is strong enough to defend our homeland, isn't that the main purpose of a country's military? Just think how much just a quarter of our military budget could provide healthcare to all Americans and also improve our education system and the economy here at home. It's disgusting how weapons of war are more of a priority with our government than providing for the needs of it's citizens.

So basically you are saying that Bannon has indeed had a Trump falling out, the new health care arrangement just being a an organ with which to switch the bitch, since Bannon would know rightly that a good few Gop'ers are not so happy with the new arrangements. Anyway, Bannon is far too impatient to implement his new world disorder...let them fight it out amongst themselves.

Let it implode on its own merits.

All of it. Washington and all.

That's the ticket.

I agree.

We should let Obamacare implode as not only a warning to future generations of the abject failure of leftism and the redistribution of unearned wealth thereof, but the disastrous effects of government meddling in our personal lives.

No, Breitbart is Trump propaganda, they would never go against the God Emperor Trump. Liberals told me so, and they are never wrong.
