Obamacare 2.0

Veronique de Rugy: "House Republicans' Obamacare Replacement Plan Is a Disaster. Here's Why. - It's health care that matters, not health care insurance."

And I like this trenchant observation from Philip Klein:
2010: Elect us to stop Obamacare.
2011: Can't stop it without Senate.
2015: We need the WH to stop Obamacare.
2017: We can't stop Obamacare.
As the kids like to say: you had one job.

The plan is SO good, Donald Trump modestly doesn't want his name on it!

“I prefer to call it patient care.”

“We’re less concerned with labels right now, and more in terms of action and results.”

“This isn’t about branding according to someone’s name.”

“It’s not Trumpcare.”

Well, Einstein, who actually wrote the bill? That part's kind of important, isn't it?

Astute rejoinder, Rog. That's exactly why the Republicans have spent seven years campaigning against "Baucuscare."

Seven! YEARS! 7 they've had to have a "shovel-ready" plan to scrape ObamaNoCare off the backs of American taxpayers and businesses. It's clear to me IT AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN. R & D do not stand for Research & Development; R & D stand for Ruthless and Destructive. We the People are being ground to dust between the two.
