    Opinion: GOP Effort to Kill Obamacare is Personal, Not Business
    By Demetrius Harris on Sat, Jul 29th, 2017 at 8:07 pm

    Donald Trump and his cohorts of the GOP are malevolently complicit in a political assassination attempt, that leaves American citizens as collateral damage. Republicans have engaged in a universal effort to erase the legacy of Barrack Obama and will stop at no cost including the lives of the people that they serve.

    The ACA was met with more than its fair share of naysayers and detractors. However, Obama took those concerns into consideration and traveled across the country, to address the questions of Americans in town hall meetings. In doing so, Obama submerged himself in the details of the package and took ownership of the legislation. Obama stood front and center and answered all the questions with dignity and grace, accepting the ultimate accountability for its failure or success. This is in stark contrast to the truly unqualified and cowardly Lying King Trump, who at the first sign of trouble relinquishes responsibility of his administration’s repeal and replace mission.

    Donald Trump campaigned long and hard on HIS ability to provide affordable healthcare for ALL Americans. He boasted about his business sense and skill at making deals. A large contingent of his support was based on his promise to make a better deal. The truth is Trump knows NOTHING about healthcare and what it entails. Just like every other task in the White House, Trump is inept to serve as a leader in the creation or streamlining of legislation.

    After promising to lead the way in the repeal and replace agenda, Trump remarkably lays blame at the feet of Democrats, who are the minority and his own sad sack administration. Trump has made no headway in the construction of repeal and replace because he’s ignorant to the machinations of government. Once again he has conned simple minded Americans, who foolishly believed that he could lead the country in any meaningful way.

    The agenda to dismantle the legacy of Barack Obama is backfiring on the Republican party. They are led by a political atrocity, who doesn’t possess the intellect, skill or diplomacy to unite both parties for the greater good. Remember the hypocrisy of the GOP and lack of vision, in a plan that centered on hubris and left Americans out in the cold. Make your voices heard in 2018 and beyond.

    It’s not Obamacare anymore. It’s our national health-care system.

    By Drew Altman and Larry Levitt July 29 at 12:29 PM

    Republicans failed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act early Friday because of divisions within their own ranks, and because they tried not only to repeal and replace the ACA but also to cut and cap the Medicaid program, generating opposition from many red-state governors and their senators.

    But most of all, they failed because they built their various plans on the false claim — busted by the Congressional Budget Office — that they could maintain the same coverage levels as the ACA and lower premiums and deductibles, while at the same time slashing about a trillion dollars from Medicaid and ACA subsidies and softening the ACA’s consumer protection regulations. Had they succeeded, they would have won a big short-term victory with their base, which strongly supports repeal, but suffered the consequences in subsequent elections as the same voters lost coverage or were hit with higher premiums and deductibles.

    The challenge now is to stabilize the ACA’s insurance marketplaces. They are not in free fall or imploding, as President Trump suggests, and in most markets insurer profits have been improving. But these are fragile markets, especially in rural areas, and there are 38 “bare counties” where no insurer currently intends to participate in 2018. About 20 percent of marketplace enrollees have access to only one insurer, with the biggest problems in rural areas.
