Where's The Beautiful New Health Care Plan Trump Promised Us? 3.8.2020 Crooks Liars
CNN's John Avlon did a reality check about Trump's promised health care plan. "Remember this?" Universal. I am going to take care of everybody. Far less expensive and far better. We are going to be submitting in a couple of weeks a great health care plan. "That was candidate and freshly minted President Trump, vowing to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a miracle health care plan." In a couple weeks. "Here we are more than three years into the Trump presidency, six weeks into a pandemic, and here's the plan -- [ crickets ]. "But in fairness to the president, he has managed to get something done, dismantling key provisions of Obamacare in the courts, namely the individual mandate. Now he's marshaling his Justice Department to try to kill the whole thing, just as America is suffering through a pandemic that's killed more than 150,000 of our fellow Americans and infected millions more, all while the second quarter GDP number was the worst on record, nearly 33% in the red if it were extended to the whole ...

At The Height Of Pandemic, Trump Asks SCOTUS To Wipe Out Obamacare 26.6.2020 Crooks Liars
Joe Biden yesterday attacked Trump's cruelty for trying to prevent Americans from having reliable health care. Late last night, proving him right, the Trump administration joined a serious challenge to the Affordable Care Act. Via the New York Times: WASHINGTON — The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court late Thursday to overturn the Affordable Care Act — a move that, if successful, would bring a permanent end to the health insurance program popularly known as Obamacare and wipe out coverage for as many as 23 million Americans. In an 82-page brief submitted an hour before a midnight deadline, the administration joined Republican officials in Texas and 17 other states in arguing that in 2017, Congress, then controlled by Republicans, had rendered the law unconstitutional when it zeroed out the tax penalty for not buying insurance — the so-called individual mandate. The administration’s argument, coming in the thick of an election season — as well as a pandemic that has devastated the economy and ...

Trump Vows To 'Terminate Health Care' Despite COVID-19 Deaths On The Rise 7.5.2020 Crooks Liars
With the Supreme Court hearing arguments this week and next, a reporter asked President Beelzebub this afternoon if he was planning to continue on with his administration's lawsuit to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Here's his response: TRUMP: Obamacare was a disaster, but we ran it very well. And we made it barely acceptable. It was a disaster under President Obama, and it's very bad health care. What we want to do is terminate it and give great health care, and we'll have great health care, including pre-existing conditions, 100 percent pre-existing conditions. Now we've already pretty much killed it, because we got rid of the individual mandate...but what we are doing is we're gonna terminate health care for - under Obamacare because it's bad, and we're replacing it with a great health care at far less money and it includes pre-existing conditions. "We're gonna terminate health care...." If that isn't the most Freudian of slips, because we all know that's what he and his GOPack of Hyenas wants. ...

Trump Promises Protection For Pre-Existing Conditions. Yeah, Right. 6.3.2020 Crooks Liars
Trump spoke at a State TV Fox News Town Hall event Thursday evening, wherein he tried not to slouch, but didn't try not to lie. One of the hosts, Martha MacCallum, asked him about his plans for health care plans to require coverage of pre-existing conditions. Trump spent nearly a full minute trashing Obamacare, especially the individual mandate, impeachment, saying we need to take back the House and keep the Senate, and oh, don't forget impeachment was a hoax. He also acknowledged the Pennsylvania politicians there in the audience. Because why answer the question? At the verrrrry end, though, he managed to squeeze in that pre-existing conditions would be 100% ...
Supreme Court Will Hear Challenge To Affordable Care Act This Fall 3.3.2020 Crooks Liars
The Supreme Court announced Monday that it will hear a challenge from Republican states to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate, the court's third whack at the law. It will hear the case in October or November, likely before the election, but will be unlikely to hand down a decision until 2021. Democratic state legislatures and the House of Representatives, which are defending the law, asked for expedited consideration, while the challenging states, led by Texas and backed by Trump's Department of Justice, wanted a delay while a 5th Circuit Court judge reconsidered his decision from last fall that struck down the entire ...

Trump Thinks He Can Take Credit For Obamacare Now 14.1.2020 Crooks Liars
Mini Mike Bloomberg is spending a lot of money on False Advertising. I was the person who saved Pre-Existing Conditions in your Healthcare, you have it now, while at the same time winning the fight to rid you of the expensive, unfair and very unpopular Individual Mandate..... Fergawdsakes . He is actually telling the cult that he’s responsible for their protection for pre-existing conditions in Obamacare when, in fact, he is, as we speak, trying to overturn the ACA in its entirety, which is the law that provides that protection. I’m sure you all remember what it was like before the ACA. Insurance companies could deny insurance to anyone with a medical condition. If they did decide to insure you, they could charge outlandish premiums making it impossible to buy insurance in any case. That is what will happen if the law is repealed and the Republicans pass some garbage law that tells insurance companies they have to cover pre-existing conditions. They’ll say fine. And then they’ll charge people who have ...

Undoing 'Obamacare' Harms More Than Americans' Health 24.12.2019 Crooks Liars
Simon F. Haeder , Pennsylvania State University The Affordable Care Act remains on life support after a panel of federal judges ruled on Dec. 18, 2019 that the law’s individual mandate requiring people to buy health insurance is unconstitutional. The decision hobbles the law in ways that are hard to predict politically, particularly in the upcoming election year. It also raises questions for the 20 million people who gained coverage in the marketplaces and all Americans who gained protections through the ACA. The ACA’s individual mandate is a foundation of the law. Experts argued that the mandate was the only way to bring healthy people into an insurance pool . That is important to allow insurers to spread the costs among a broad mix of people, not just the sick. It served as a crucial bargaining chip for the Obama administration in bringing insurers on board to support health care reform a decade ...
