"Instead, he repeatedly told them that the GOP goal is making health care
affordable and "accessible for every single American" and to provide
choices."Translation: This guy doesn't have the slightest
idea of what he will do to overhaul health care in America. Like most
Republicons, he hasn't shifted gears from being an obstructionist to being
@lost in DC: "whatever comes out should allow insurers to price for
controllable risk." A clear slippery slope. You can
test for nicotine in the person's blood to determine if they're a
smoker.You can test for illegal drugs, but that only shows if
they've used recently. Doesn't pick up occasional users. Alcohol clears the system in about eight hours – and even so, would they
charge more for someone who has an occasional glass of wine with dinner? A beer
during the game but rarely otherwise? And promiscuity? How do you
know? I mean, for some people they could simply audit Howard Stern shows to
find bragging about promiscuity and adultery. Most Americans, however,
don't publicize their indiscretions. Full implementation of
this idea would lead to insurance companies spying on every part of our private
The GOP "plan" is more and more sounding like, "You know - the way
it used to be before the ACA."@ silo"At this

They're a way of life for some (including the illustrious DJT).
@lost in dc"you were ok with 'we have to pass it so we can see
what's in it'"This quote gets thrown around a lot, and
it's never accurate, and its meaning is always twisted to fit a lie.At this point, with the text of Pelosi's quote readily searchable

We don't have to pass this one to know what's in it. It'll pass,
and still no one will know.
whatever comes out should allow insurers to price for controllable risk. you
want to smoke? pay a higher, non-subsidized premium. same if you drink, use
recreational drugs, are promiscuous, or morbidly obese, etc. Folks with genetic
predisposition or pre-existing conditions should not be penalized, but if your
choices make you a higher risk customer, you should pay for those choices.old manyou were ok with "we have to pass it so we can see
what's in it"?mcclarksince dems gave us obamacare,
what we had before looked very good in comparison.
Tom Price is not only the best pick for the job, but also the best qualified.Only Democrats are objecting! And, their questioning this man's
integrity as a devoted, successful doctor in the private and public section of
medicine is appalling! He should be nominated! No backroom deals and
12 hour vote on a healthcare plan this time. It will be handled by someone who
actually knows the medical field with experts to guide him. I wouldn't
trust the opposition with a smidgen of information!
When the Republicans are done Obamacare is going to look very very good in
Not just democrats, Nobody knows what the amazing terrific carnage will bring.
Bet we don't have to "pass it to know what's in it" and there
won't be lies and false promises like "It will save the average
American family $2500/year".
few details? Here are some details -- we are going to KILL Obamacare and start
over. How is that for details? The GOP currently has 7 plans that are already
written -- they just have to combine the best parts into one now. Let's all
keep in mind who created this Everest sized mess in the first place--The
Democrats!! This is their bill 100%....the bill they didn't even bother to
read before passing it. That was sure a great idea wasn't it. Obamacare is
the classic case why polititians should NEVER write anything that you want to
actually work!!! What a pathetic joke. This is a "bail out" as much as
Democrats are attempting to put the cart before the horse. This is a
confirmation hearing, not a legislative debate. Tom Price is
actually a doctor who is also a congressman. Sounds like someone who knows a bit
more about the healthcare industry than all of the Senators questioning him. Price does not sound at all like a swamp rat either. That would be most
of the Senators questioning him. Some of them even have the audacity to lie
about him during senate hearings knowing they cannot be prosecuted for their
"Don't ask for details. Just trust us."Trust The
Donald?Sorry. But that's not a reasonable request.
Rather than draining the swamp, it appears Trump maybe restocking it with
