Hill: Repealing Obamacare and protecting hospitals a must for Colorado

Hill: Repealing Obamacare and protecting hospitals a must for Colorado

During an interview with Bill O'Reilly on the Fox Super Bowl pregame show, Trump was noncommittal when asked if Americans can expect ObamaCare to be replaced within the calendar year.

Amid uncertainty over the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which is commonly known as Obamacare, the fourth open-enrollment period closed at midnight Tuesday. And now that Trump has pushed out the GOP's plan to replace Obamacare sometime into 2018 - because "very complicated -it looks as though he's bought Republicans some time to come up with something, or, anything at all, really, to replace the health care plan they seem to hate so much".

Obamacare, or Affordable Care Act, is a signature health reform initiative of former President Barack Obama. Senator Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican, said late Sunday that a vote to begin repealing Obamacare will take place this year, though it may not take effect until later. Enrollment was running slightly ahead of last year's pace until Trump took office January 20 amid renewed pledges to scrap the 2010 law, the Times reported. Too many people are suffering under the yoke of this oppressive law.

As now written, the Obamacare Replacement Act repeals Obamacare and its costly regulations and offers reforms that will will reduce excess taxation, wasteful spending, return health insurance regulation to the states, and provide more choices for Americans.

The Patient Freedom Act of 2017 intends to re-create a plan that will follow free-market principles in order to "broaden healthcare access, make health care more affordable and improve the quality of the care available to all Americans", according to Trump's campaign website. Rand Paul last month, who warned about the consequences that repealing the law - and not immediately replacing it - would have on Americans, insurance companies, in addition to the political ramifications it could have on Republicans.

I think of Obamacare like a collapsing bridge.

Ryan insisted that he and other Republican leaders have already carefully designed numerous elements of a replacement plan. That's the health insurance program for the poor and disabled that expanded under Obamacare.

The move to repeal and replace Obamacare at the same time was spearheaded by Kentucky Republican Sen.

Yes, the GOP has been screaming about the necessity of repealing Obamacare for the better part of a decade, but there are growing signs that in actuality, the party isn't ready to rip away insurance from 20 million Americans.

"It statutorily takes a lot to get; we're going to be putting it in fairly soon", he added. "If what the president means is next year is when the states choose those options, then we're entirely on the same page". "We will fix the damage that Obamacare has caused millions of Americans".
