ObamaCare Lite

You Promised to Repeal ObamaCare!

Republicans have made one simple promise to the American people since 2010 and that was if voters elect a Republican majority in Congress and a Republican President, they will repeal ObamaCare. Unfortunately, after two months in full control of Washington, the best the GOP can come up with is a watered down version of ObamaCare called the American Health Care Act.

The Paul Ryan “ObamaCare Lite” plan is a horrible approach to getting rid of ObamaCare. It avoids a full repeal of the law (which was passed in 2015) because Republicans are afraid of a filibuster threat in the Senate. So instead they are marketing a plan that they say will reduce health care costs, but is done in 3 steps. The first step is budget reconciliation to avoid a potential filibuster. That step does not repeal the worst parts of ObamaCare and creates new GOP subsidies using refundable tax credits (where someone with no tax liability gets a check from government). Then, the following steps repeal insurance mandates but face the same filibuster threats as before.

Republican leadership is about to turn the broken system of ObamaCare into their own failed program and will suffer in the 2018 elections for doing it. Contact your representative today and tell him to repeal ObamaCare in its entirety now!
