For those who have been struggling under the intolerable burdens of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (affectionately or less affectionately known as Obamacare), this has been an encouraging day. Why? The United States House of Representatives passed the newest version of the American Health Care Act with the purpose of repealing and replacing Obamacare.
The past week or so has certainly been a roller coaster ride, with ups and downs and twists and turns, when it comes to the fate of the effort to repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare). In the build-up to a possible full House of Representatives vote on the American Health Care Act (to replace Obamacare), the talk was thick and fast about the possibility of the bill passing. President Donald Trump had launched an all-out hard sell push while Speaker of the House Paul Ryan worked over his Republican colleagues in the House.
I’m going to take a little “time out” from my analysis of the American Health Care Act to rant a bit. What about? The sheer cluelessness of many of the people who report on the Obamacare repeal and replacement plan as well as those who are interviewed about it.
