These new regulations (external - login to view) would allow insurance companies to sell plans with higher deductibles and narrower networks and reduce the subsidies that low- and middle-income families get to purchase insurance. Yes, higher out-of-pocket costs and less help buying insurance. For the people that have the hardest time affording insurance and medical care.

The Administration argues that allowing less generous health plans, with higher deductibles and out-of-pocket costs but lower premiums, will give consumers more choices, draw more people into the marketplace, and, in this way, stabilize the market. But, in fact, this provision of the rule will do just the opposite.

As long as they insist on dealing with private insurance companies for basic medical care it will always be a shambles.

It will always be bloody expensive when every treatment and transaction has to generate that 35% margin.

The constantly confusing Palin slams GOP healthcare plan

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) slammed House Republicans' healthcare proposal on Saturday, predicting that President Trump "will step in an fix it."

Palin started off her interview dubbing the bill "RINO-care" — RINO standing for "Republican in name only" — and saying it still had aspects of "socialism" about it.

"Remember this is government-controlled healthcare, the system that requires enrollment in an unaffordable, unsustainable, unwanted, unconstitutional continuation of government-run medicine, and even in this new quasi-reformed proposal, there is still an aspect of socialism," said Palin, a Trump ally. That’s the whole premise here."

While the plan removes ObamaCare's individual mandate that fines those who go without insurance, Palin specifically criticized the GOP proposal for allowing insurers to charge a 30 percent penalty if there are gaps in someone's coverage.

“This 30 percent additional fee will be collected by some in the private sector, which will mean politicians are allowed again to pick the winners and losers, and it makes you wonder who’s lobbying hardest for aspects of this new bill because obviously there are special interests involved," Palin said.

“It would be really helpful if every single one of these politicians would do like the NASCAR drivers do—and it’s been said before—but let them wear their sponsors plastered all over their three-piece suits when they show up so we know what side they’re on and who they’re actually doing their bidding for," she added.

Republicans unveiled two measures (external - login to view) Monday evening to dismantle the core aspects of ObamaCare, including its subsidies to help people buy coverage, its expansion of Medicaid, its taxes and its mandates for people to have insurance.

The GOP plan restructures the Medicaid program by capping federal payments and replacing it with a new system centered on a tax credit to help people buy insurance.

The tax credit under the GOP plan ranges from $2,000 to $4,000 a year per individual, increasing with someone’s age. Under that system, low-income and older people would receive less financial assistance than under ObamaCare, while younger people and those with somewhat higher incomes would receive more financial assistance.

Palin said she didn't entirely disagree with all aspects of the plan and said she wanted to work on changing the proposed bills, suggesting that Trump may be the person to do that.

"He will step in and fix it," Palin said. "I have great faith that President Trump is one who will fulfill campaign promises."

"I’m sure that President Trump is going to do the right thing and listen to all sides, of course, but understand, especially, that as a businessman, he’s going to understand whether this makes sense in his vision of how to grow businesses and how to get government off our back and back on our side."

And that's the reason that Obamacare was as screwed up as it was.

Every one of 'em's a permanent payday for the insurance industry. Hardly surprising when you have unlimited time and money in elections. "Who payeth the piper calleth the tune."

More States To Expand Medicaid Now That Obamacare Remains Law

Source: Forbes

More states will pursue expansion of Medicaid health benefits for poor Americans under the Affordable Care Act after Republicans failed to repeal and replace the law.

The American Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare, would’ve rolled back the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and put restrictions on states that tried to expand such coverage. But Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan Friday pulled the ACHA legislation Friday, making, “Obamacare the law of the land” as he said.

At least two states – Kansas and North Carolina – are already working toward becoming the 32nd and 33rd states to expand Medicaid under the ACA. They would join 31 states plus the District of Columbia that have taken advantage of generous federal funding available under the law, President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, according to the Advisory Board.

And there may be even more states that will resurrect state legislative efforts to expand Medicaid. Before Trump was elected, Georgia, Idaho, Nebraska and South Dakota were considering Medicaid expansion . But Trump’s election, along with Republican control of Congress prompted these states to put on the breaks for Medicaid expansion when an ACA repeal looked likely. “The effort to expand Medicaid in Georgia just died,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution said Nov. 9, 2016, the day after Trump won the electoral college.

I don't understand why Kim Jong Don doesn't just put out a tweet saying he wrote Trumpcare, it passed Congress yesterday, he signed it today, it's now the law of the land, and it will provide coverage to everybody for pennies.

The one thing the Trumpchumps have proven is that they'll believe anything the Dear Leader says.
