Brill...60 Minutes

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2015/01/11/60_minutes_report_what_obamacare_doesnt_do.html

 

The new GOP Congress can fix this if they want to and in doing so would  most likely endear themselves to the Nation in a manner that would create a permanent GOP majority.  At least for the rest of many of our lifetimes.

 

Now, if only any of them had been talking about it since 2010 then there would possibly be some momentum to go ahead with the necessary fix. Trouble is, the 180 degrees across equivilant to the baggers on the other side of the aisle HAS been talking about what Brill discusses as needing fixing.  For a long, long time.....well before Obma and ACA.   Real trouble is, they only hold a few seats.

Re: Brill...60 Minutes

We`ve talked about what Brill is saying fo 4,5 years now "Obamacare does nothing to lower prices'  all Obamacare is ...is a Rube Goldberg contraption to subsidize health insurance for 30 million people...when all is said and done it would be far cheaper to just flat out raise taxes and pay for health insurance for 30 million people.

 

I put the blame on Obama and the Democrats, Obamacare was passed only by Democrats every vote buying dirty trick was used to get it through.   And did you catch what Brill said about drug co`s and medical devices co`s and insurance co`s are making out like bandits with Obamacare.  It`s the doctors and healthcare workers that are feeling the brunt of this....and they are kind of an important clog in the healthcare wheel.   It`s always been easy to beat up on doctors, but believe me they are NOT the problem.

 

Right now "fixing Obamacare"????Smiley Very Happy     Republicans got kicked in the nuts and are rightfully pissed, Democrats are dumb as a box of hammers and have a tiger by the tail.  This is Obama`s fault he divided this country irreparably.   He tells congress "i`ll veto the Keystone bill" before they even pass it....the sonofabitch couldn`t have screwed things up more if he tried.

Call Steve and Chuck and Joni and have them lead the charge to fix it. And I'd bet the house that if they could do what it would take to put the fix in on the Brill ailments that the President would sign it.

 

It could actually all happen simply on it's own. but that wouldn't be pretty.  For now, your peeps have got the monkey.

Re: Brill...60 Minutes

I really hate to go back to Obama`s tired analogy about "the car in the ditch"  but, he owns the license, registration, mortgage on the "healthcare car"...Obama was drinking and texting when he put this car in the ditch, it has his fingerprints all on it.  As petulant as he is, he obviously doesn`t want to fix anything. 

 

We Republicans warned this would happen, not one Republican voted for Obamacare, not even Susan Collins or Olympia Snowe.  i don`t know why we would want to bail him out...we weren`t invited to have any input on this mess.   "Har Har Har"   remember that?  I do.

Re: Brill...60 Minutes

You and your pals in the baritone section here have not been saying these things for 4.5 years.  You've been calling it socialism and eugenics and tyranny. 

 

AGAIN....if Congress would pass reform that would fix the therein described Brill ailments, the President would sign it. If the House and Senate leadership  (GOP, of course, with the current majorites)...McConnell and Boehner presently, would let it come to a vote Democrats by the score would vote for it. But it would have to first come out of committees chaired by Republcans.  Type up your demand that the fix be made in triplcate and send it to those 3 reps of yours and they should be able to route it to those chairs.

Re: Brill...60 Minutes

God your memory is poor. You had 15 months to offer amendments  to the affordable care act. Don't you rememeber grassley working so hard on the legislation to make it unpaletable. Lets create a bill that nobody will vote for.

 

The truth is the democrats had to do it alone because the repubs have always favored doing nothing!

Re: Brill...60 Minutes

Republicans were in the minority there wasn`t a damned thing we could do.  Our Senators and Repressentatives and the time Obamacare passed couldn`t have gotten a single amendment passed....and Thank God for that or our fingerprints would be on the liquor bottle and steering wheel along with Obama`s.
