TrumpCare passed by House of Reps

Recommended Posts

@melissaw72, it only passed the House of Representatives..........It still has to pass in the Senate to become law.

IMO, I highly doubt it will pass the Senate UNLESS some major changes are made to it.

If the Senate makes changes to the Bill and it passes there after the changes, then the changed TrumpCare bill will have to go through the House again and pass there.

If the House won't pass it after the Senate changes it, then Trumpcare will die again.....

And then, "round and round and round it goes, where it stops, nobody knows....."

Oh, ok ... thanks for the correction.  I hadn't heard that yet.

Another case of politicians being politicians. They're not trying to pass the bill because it's beneficial to the public, they're doing it because it's on Trump's agenda and he's got a missed due date on his asinine timeline he's trying to hit. They only voted on it when they did because they had closed door meetings to take a headcount beforehand of who would support the bill. It's really just a stupid game that screws the general population, all under the guise of "It's for the people!"

In what reality is dumping coverage for 24 million people a good thing?

It's not......That's why it will never pass the Senate in it's current form.

Major  modifications will have to be made before it passes Senate.....And a bill modified and passed by the Senate will have to pass in the House again....

Quote from the above article:..........."Republican senators say the House bill will have to undergo substantial revision if it ever passes the lower chamber, and they have serious doubts about whether the House will accept those changes."...........

There is no Trumpcare.  The bill is simply a complex dance of doing nothing but at the same time giving the appearance that they're doing something.  This bill isn't going anywhere in the senate, and once they change it, the freedom caucus says they want out.  So, probably no repeal yet.  It will likely keep going back and forth a few times before they "settle" on something.  The thing is there are a few Republicans that want there to be some protections in place for healthcare, the moderates.  They are a minority, but the margins are slim and the Republicans need their votes.  Then, there are the Freedom Caucus members and supporters of the Freedom Caucus. These guys don't want to have anything in place in terms of healthcare, nor are they in favor of any form of government assistance for any issue.  So, Republicans have to create legislation that appeases both of these groups.  

The fact that they don't agree on this and have to take steps to basically appease both sides simultaneously, which is nearly impossible to do, has resulted in them being slowed down drastically.  This time, the bill won't make it through the Senate I don't think, and then when it gets altered and sent back to the house (if it even does), they would likely reject the changes, starting the cycle over again.  At some point though, I think they will "come up with something".  That will basically take away quality health coverage from anybody that isn't one of the super-rich, because while you might be able to get health insurance, there is a good chance that it won't really cover much of anything. Say for instance, health policies that don't cover medications and hospitalization and only cover office visits, or something equally ludicrous.
