ACA Repeal Votes Defy Preferences Of Constituents 16.10.2017 Health Affairs Blog
Despite repeatedly failing to advance legislation through the Senate, Republicans in Congress have not abandoned their goal of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The latest attempt at repeal in the form of the Graham-Cassidy bill would have established a per capita cap on federal Medicaid financing, eliminated the individual mandate, and undermined protections for older adults and people with preexisting conditions, by allowing states to opt out of key ACA insurance regulations. It would also have eliminated funding for the ACA’s Marketplace premium and cost-sharing subsidies and Medicaid expansion, and redirected some of that funding toward block grants to states. One puzzling aspect of this and previous repeal efforts is that they nearly succeeded in spite of widespread public support for the core elements of the ACA that would have been overturned. Although almost 80 percent of nonelderly adults favor keeping the Medicaid expansion and nearly 70 percent favor keeping the premium ...

Rep. Jim Jordan Not Against 'Emperor' Trump's Use Of Executive Orders 13.10.2017 Crooks Liars
Rep. Jim Jordan defended Trump's constant use of Executive Orders, saying they are legal after years of constantly attacking President Obama, accused him of being an "emperor" for issuing them half as much. Republican hypocrisy hits a new low, again. CNN's Chris Cuomo battled it out with the Freedom Caucus wacko, who now ignores everything he said when President Obama was in office and suddenly loves him some executive orders. See, as long as a Republican acts like a dictator and imposes ideas that Jordan likes, it's appropriate. Trump signed his 50th executive order already because he can't get any of his ideas through the legislative process since they are even repugnant to the GOP led Congress. Rep. Jim Jordan joined CNN's New Day to discuss Trump's executive order to do away with paying subsidies to the ACA that lower-income families need to keep their health insurance. Rep. Jordan refused to give a direct answer when Cuomo cornered him on his hypocritical behavior when dealing with Obama. Cuomo ...
