    The repeal will have an immediate impact of increased cost of insurance as well as allowing healthcare costs to revert back to double digit annual increases thus driving up inflation. Medical inflation impacts claim costs for bodily injury claims, workers comp and auto. Lost coverages such as pre-existing conditions and children able to be on parents health plans to age 26 will be lost.

      Actually the blueprint that Paul Ryan and the House leadership introduced in June would keep the prohibition on denying coverage for pre-existing conditions and children being able to stay on the their parents’ health plans to age 26.

      Those are pretty much the only things that would be spared from the Affordable Care Act.

      Wrong. You don’t seem very ‘concerned’ with the details of the Republican plans that will merge into the REPEAL & REPLACE solution to the mess left behind by the Dems.

      The REPEAL is the FIRST part of the solution.

      The REPLACEMENT will rely heavily on the private industry to address the costs, the issue of adverse selection, the inefficiencies of single state insurance companies (which can largely be addressed by legislative action to remove state barriers and increase competition).

      I see libbies and Soros-holes are already spreading lies about the effect of repealing the ACA disaster. The ACA bus is running on wobbly wheels, and heading over a cliff. Jump off the ACA bus, ASAP! Preferably on or very close to January 20, 2017.

      Make America Financially Responsible Again!

    What are the chances that individuals will be able to buy health insurance across state lines?

      Very good. Part of the original Republican plan that was dismissed out of hand by Obama, Reid and Pelosi. I believe our current President said to get on the back of the bus, we will do our own.

        Agent,

        Selling across state lines = interstate commerce = federal regulation.

        Nice to see the Republicans now favor more federal government regulation and less state regulation.

          Hypocrisy at it’s best, Ron. Like I said, Drumpf will certainly shine a big bright light on all the hypocrites on The Right. They’re already starting to shine.
