I wonder why the dems never wanted to "work" with the republicans before.

Before, Obamacare was perfect and there was nothing that ever needed to be done.

But now?

pfft.

Dems can go suck it.



Revisionist History....

There were tons of Amendments put in by Republicans, and there were hearings and debates, and yes, Republican ideas are all over the ACA!!! They DID work with them. And yes, there was a partisan vote after which, in true GOP style, they stabbed the Dems in the back and started the whole negative op against the law that they helped create.

Fun times. It sure riled up the base, though, and that's all that matters! Got the hard right to put on three-quarter caps and tea bags.

Guess which base is riled up now?



The left is now riled up? What are they going to do, throw latte's and pink vagina hats at us?

Mc Cain might have voted to debate, but he just said that he won't vote for it's passage...
he's calling for cooperation between the parties it sounds like.

Take control of the Legislative Branch and do to Trump what the GOP did to Obama.

The Senate is only scheduled to work 43 more days this year. Compromise will take until well into 2018. Kiss tax-reform goodbye.

I can't help but chuckle at the irony of McCain coming immediately from the hospital (taxpayer funded healthcare) to vote to repeal taxpayer aided healthcare.

During the early stages of brain cancer, you're not in the hospital. He was at home. And goes to the hospital for chemotherapy.

Senate Holds Health-Care Vote -- Live Coverage

The U.S. Senate holds a preliminary vote on a measure that
would overturn the 2010 Affordable Care Act


2m HIGHLIGHTS Corker Predicts Vote to Proceed Will Pass -- With Pence's Tie-Breaker Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) just predicted that the vote on the motion to proceed would succeed. But it will require the Vice President to cast a tie-breaking vote. "It's going to take Pence," he said. Siobhan Hughes


www.wsj.com...

Looks like they are going to Repeal much of the failed Obamacare!

Whoooooo!



Capito to Vote 'Yes' on Motion to Proceed West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito has joined the list of Senators coming off the fence in favor of this afternoon’s vote to open debate on Republicans’ health-care legislation. She joins Dean Heller of Nevada, Rob Portman of Ohio, and Rand Paul of Kentucky, who said he would vote for the motion in order to proceed to a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act. A few fence-sitters have yet to announce their positions: Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, a centrist Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, conservatives who back a fuller repeal of the 2010 health law. We’ll be watching these three figures as the Senate begins voting. If two or more oppose the motion to proceed, that will close the door on debate.



Chuck Schumer :


"Turn back. We can go through regular order. We want to work with you. We know the ACA isn't perfect. But we also know what you proposed is much worse."


Oh just lol. What a pile of Horse Manure!

"We want to work with you" hahahaha.

Repeal it!



And the replacement leaves many of the poor without healthcare. The people voting to continue discussion to dismantle the ACA have free and full health insurance. The * irony.

And all of his medical bills will be 100% paid. Yet he votes yes to take healthcare from the poor.

I liked his speech, but, really, screw 'em.

Under the current Obamacare repeal replace plans being discussed, People who earn less than $11,000 a year will not be touched. They will stay on Medicaid indefinitely. People who earn between $11,000 and $16,000 a year will be able to stay on Medicaid until 2020.

The people in 18 states, like Texas, that have not expanded medicaid would not notice a difference regardless of what bill passes or does not pass.

The United States government should you simply allow everybody who wants to have Medicare or Medicaid to have it. Everyone else can buy a free-market private insurance plan. It is so simple I don't know why they don't think of it.

Medicare would be between 300 and $600 a month per person. Medicaid would be free for those that cannot afford Medicare. It's a no-brainer.

Medicare will be on the chopping block soon enough. Then the tide will turn. Old people vote single issues...believe me.

Probably...

Because they DID and it wouldn't work.

They have likely run numbers WE don't have in front of us.
