Isn’t it ironic that hardline conservative Republicans are the ones that have saved Obamacare?!
The healthcare reform bill proposed to replace Obamacare was pulled from consideration yesterday due to a lack of votes to get it passed. A number of conservatives said they would not vote for the bill primarily because it was too expensive, though it saved $1 trillion over 10 years.
The proposed bill would have eliminated the requirement to buy insurance if you didn’t want to, eliminated the requirement to buy mandated benefits you didn’t want (like sex change coverage required by Obamacare) and would have saved $100 billion/ year. Yet politicians who have campaigned for 7 years about replacing Obamacare are now responsible for making sure it stays in place because the replacement legislation wasn’t perfect and get everything they wanted.
And politicians wonder why people think they all lie. Mark it down–Thinking Man predicts more than one of those politicians who saved Obamacare will lose their next election.
