Missouri Democratic Party: All Missouri Republicans voted for disastrous Trumpcare bill

(From the Missouri Democratic Party)

The House GOP voted today to pass their disastrous health care bill that hikes costs on older Missourians and threatens health care for individuals who have been sick before. 

It's estimated that 150,000 Missourians with private health insurance would lose their coverage in 2018 if Trumpcare becomes law.

What's worse is that every single one of Missouri's Congressional Republicans voted for it.

Congresswoman Ann Wagner - YES
Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer - YES
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler - YES
Congressman Sam Graves - YES
Congressman Billy Long - YES
Congressman Jason Smith - YES

So they "repealed & replaced" Obamacare like these Republicans promised the voters to do for the past seven years or so. As a voter I'm glad that for once they delivered. They shouldn't have "replaced" Obamacare with Trumpcare though.

Obamacare passed without a single Republican vote as a forced entitlement in which the young and healthy were forced to pay for the old and sick. The premiums went doubled or tripled. Your affirmative-action man-child of a president lied to the American People about "keeping your doctor" and health-care plan if you wanted to.

So now this unfunded mandate is finished and those who got something for nothing are bereft.

Medicine and education have become rackets which bankrupt those who get it for "free" and try to make others pay for the rising costs. Maybe the only solution will be to go back to county-level clinics and pay as you go medicine, eating healthy, and letting these HMOs go bankrupt given that nobody is paying the inflated bills.

That's just ignorance at it's finest. The young and healthy don't get sick or have accidents where they need hospitalization? So they don't buy insurance and who pays for it when they do need it? Isn't that getting something for nothing? Oh, wait, that's right. Take their house and bankrupt them for medical bills. But, they were young and healthy. Now we have a psychotic narcissist for a president that lies every time he opens his mouth. Sure, they passed their version of this without a single Democrat vote. No one was forced to get insurance. They were fined if they didn't so at least they paid something into the pool. The fine was less than if they actually bought insurance coverage. This is about as good as the fool that said if you can't get your pre-existing coverage where you live then move to a state where you can. Typical party before country republican.

Let's see what the bill looks like after the Senate gets through with it. Then let's see if it actually replaces the ACA. If it does, then let's see how it works. The proof is always in the pudding. If it's a disaster for a majority of people, they will know it first-hand because it will hurt them where they live.They won't have to follow politics to understand the results, and all the talking heads and alternative facts in the world won't change what they experience personally.Republicans have promised for seven years to repeal and replace Obamacare. If they actually do it, they will own whatever they pass. If it provides better coverage for everyone at a lower price, they can take the credit, but if they strip millions of people of health care coverage, or make it so expensive only the wealthy can afford it, there surely will be consequences at the next election. And there should be.
