Anticipation is growing as Republicans prepare to rip the dirty bandage of Obamacare off the festering healthcare sore it has created.
Every working-class American has been hit financially because of Obamacare, President Obama’s legacy health care plan. Most Americans can’t afford good health care, despite government claims, unless they are broke and dependent on the government.
Obamacare has collapsed on itself with many insurers pulling out of the market and government exchanges failing in most states. While Democrats vowed to fight any changes, Republicans want Obamacare gone quickly and then allow the free market to provide health care that works.
Championing the end of Obamacare is Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, and he voiced his opinions in an article at Rare.
“Congress will, as its first course of action, vote to repeal Obamacare. It cannot happen soon enough,” Paul wrote.
The libertarian leaning senator has been in the media quite a bit lately talking about what’s going to happen in the first few weeks of the Trump administration. To say the least, he’s been itching t0 replace some of the policies and executive orders the Obama administration has hoisted upon America. This definitely includes the Affordable Care Act.
Paul wrote that “perhaps we should try freedom” when replacing Obamacare. He offered his points in the Rare article:
- The freedom to choose inexpensive insurance free of government dictates.
- The freedom to save unlimited amounts in a health savings account.
- The freedom to buy insurance across state lines.
- The freedom for all individuals to join together in voluntary associations to gain the leverage of being part of a large insurance pool.
The free market works, and Paul believes it should be allowed to do what it can.
Replacing Obamacare must come swiftly, Paul wrote:
If Congress fails to vote on a replacement at the same time as repeal, the repealers risk assuming the blame for the continued unraveling of Obamacare. For mark my words, Obamacare will continue to unravel and wreak havoc for years to come.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said something similar, with the intent of blaming all Obamacare failures on Republicans.
During a Democratic conference call, Pelosi said if Republicans break Obamacare, they own it.
Paul raised a similar warning, saying that if the GOP doesn’t swap out a working model with the problems left behind by the Democrats, they run the risk of having the blame put on them by the public, despite it not being their creation.
Paul is telling it straight to everyone.
“Don’t misunderstand me,” continues Paul in his article. “We should repeal Obamacare, but partial repeal will only accelerate the current chaos and may eventually lead to calls for a taxpayer bailout of insurance companies.”
“Obamacare required the brute force of government through the individual mandate to make people buy insurance,” writes Paul. “If you repeal this mandate but leave in place dictates as to whom may purchase insurance, you create a business model doomed to fail.”
Anyone wanting quality healthcare at an affordable price should root for Republican success in repealing the socialist medical plan.
From the day Obama lied about people keeping their doctors and less expensive plans, people should have realized the plan was a bust. No one should be forced to get medical insurance and then penalized by the government if they don’t. We look forward to President-elect Donald Trump signing better healthcare legislation into law.
