    IIRC, the revised bill is expected to cause more people to be uninsured, and is expected to save less money, than the original AHCA bill. In my opinion, while the ACA is a disaster, changing the AHCA the way they did is certainly not a step in the right direction.

      Nope. you don’t remember correctly.

      The ACA is in a death spiral, inevitably ending in ZERO policies in force.

      The proper comparison of the failed bill is coverage lost compared to ZERO ACA residual PIF.

      The proper comparison of cost is to the END results of costs, not the immediate costs that have inertia from costs under ACA. SEVERAL cost savings methods will eventually be introduced in PHASE II and PHASE III. Only the repeal and PHASE I bill features have been revealed.

      Recall my list of details is encrypted in ‘HEALTH CARE SPECIFICCS’.

      The first 3 letters represents Health Expense (not savings) Accounts.

      Stay tuned for PHASE II and III details!

    TrumpCare will saddle 99% of people with higher premiums, higher deductibles, or plans that don’t cover anything. All while giving a huge tax cut to the top 1% which is the entire point of the legislation.

    And amazingly the vote failed because the plan isn’t bad enough!

    Now we get optics like 35 guys around a table deciding to strip away maternity care.

    Seven years. They had seven years to come up with a replacement, and they’ve got nothing. Meanwhile we are hearing that Trump doesn’t even know what’s in the bill or care. He just wants a “win” before he gets impeached and convicted of conspiracy and obstruction.

      Your hyperbole, based on whatever source, is not worth refuting.

      The comparisons that are VALID are against ZERO coverage when the death spiral of ACA ends it in a few years.

      Correction: they’ve got NOTHING that you can see now…. you’ve been ‘PEE-LOW-SEE-ed’!

      In truth, the plan vote was pulled because the plan was TOO MUCH LIKE KEEPING ACA.

      Dr. Peter Warinner, MD of Wellesly, MA, commented on a syndicated radio show on Thursday that the changes in the Republican proposal amounted to about a 5% to 10% change in ACA. Conservative Republicans agree, and declined to support Ryano-Care 2.0. I agree, and am glad the Ryano Care bill was shelved before a vote. Let US citizens see what happens under the death spiral of ACA, and they’ll gladly support the Freedom of Choice under a clean repeal, with government removing itself from the issue, other than regulatory changes to support private insurance initiatives to increase competition and lower underlying costs.

        Polar, apparently Conservatives were not listened to by Ryan-o. Hard to get rid of Progressive entitlement laden laws since it has been entrenched for so long.
