New poll is up. (My typing gets worse as I get older. Sorry about that.)

I'm relatively young yet my typing is still awful! Don't blame it on your age.

Actually, I was blaming the decline in quality on my age.

But here we are, into July and Obamacare is still the law of the land. The latest installment in this ongoing drama is the Senate version of a bill that is not a repeal as much as superficial edit.
It must be conceded the Senate bill does away with the most offensive portions of Obamacare. That is the mandate on individuals and businesses.
But this version maintains a tax on the upper income brackets to help pick up the insurance tab on low income families.[1][2] This is also known as a transfer of wealth.
The part that really cranks my tail is the people presenting this bill are supposed to be Republicans. You know, dyed in the wool champions of fiscal conservatism.
But yet, they are letting stand a tax specifically on the upper income brackets to pay for someone else's health care.
There ain't no justice...

[2] Quote from above linked article: "The new package would keep most of the original bill's Medicaid reductions. But it would retain Obama tax increases on upper-income people and use the revenue to help some lower earners afford coverage."


The problem is that the "good" things such as coverage for pre existing conditions, depend on the mandate. Indeed they depend on a mandate that does not exist - a Swiss style mandate that really does induce the young and healthy to buy insurance (because the penalties are very high if one does not) I do not believe in the mandate (of course not - I am pro liberty), but I understand that the stuff that Senators such as Susan Collins want (the pre existing conditions and so on) can only be funded either by endless subsidies to the insurance companies (corrupt bailout ism) or the mandate - a mandate with real teeth.

People who think Obamacare can be "fixed" miss the point that it is designed to fail. It increases the subsidies and regulations that caused the high cost of health care in the first place - over decades.

It seems the WA wants to enact the ADA in Nations States land. If you're a WA member and a mind to, might want to vote against the latest ration of fertilizer they propose to inflict on WA members: Enabling The Disabled In Academia

More people voted for Clinton than Chump so there wasn't "people speaking loud and clear" about repealing healthcare and many voted for Trump for reasons that had nothing to do with healthcare. People aren't necessarily in favor of a repeal. They are more in favor of lower costs, which the ultra corrupt Idiot-In-Chief promised would be so easy and massively cheaper than the current healthcare. The primary reason Chump is in office is due to his promise to spur economic growth. Clinton offered the economic status quo which was highly unpopular across the political spectrum.

The Republican majorities in both Houses are less than they were in 2016. Republican representatives are there more because of gerrymandering than due to any specific issue.

Hey guys. I forgot to come here to nationstates for a whole now, and all my progress has been deleted. So, I decided to join this region!

That's "President Chump" to you. And people do not elect the president. The states do. We've talked about this.

But, just because you probably have nothing better to do right now, check out this map showing the election by counties:
http://brilliantmaps.com/2016-county-election-map/

It shows why the Electoral College works. The small areas of ultra dense population were unable to run over the rest of the country. That is precisely why the founders of this nation adopted the Electoral College for selecting our president.

You should go back and read the original post again.

The True Believers of Free Market Paradise wrote:The Republican majorities in both Houses are less than they were in 2016.

So what? The Republicans held both houses. That victory is primarily due to Obamacare.

Yeah, there's no way people are pissed off at the wanna be communists running the Democratic Party these days.

Glad to have you.

Nobody said people weren't pissed off at the way the Democrats, or Republicans are run these days. I did say the result in the House is mostly due to gerrymandering, and not any specific issue. Republican majority fell by 2 in the Senate and 6 in the House. Not exactly a ringing endorsement in a Presidential Election year.
