Repealing Obamacare is an opportunity

Julie Simons of Broomfield and Kathy Henson of Thornton attended a rally at the state capitol on Tuesday in support of the Affordable Care Act. Both said the law has helped them get more affordable coverage

This leads me to the third and most surprising obstacle in the way of Obamacare repeal: Trump.

That indicates that, nearly certainly, a not-insignificant share of people who benefit from the ACA are likely supporting the repeal of Obamacare without realizing that the move will harm them personally.

The changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more commonly referred to as Obamacare, are predicted to have a large influence on many Americans' lives.

There are a lot of moving pieces here, and the GOP will certainly keep talking about repealing Obamacare for some time. Key committee leaders are working through proposals and will be involved in those sessions.

"We're going to be submitting, as soon as our secretary is approved, nearly simultaneously, shortly thereafter, a plan", Mr Trump said at a Jan 11 press conference.

We have to fight for these competitions'. "The team showed good character, which is important for me, and I am happy". We needed to score, we needed more time to play. "We needed more time to play", he said. "It's important for us".

A November survey conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that "while President-elect Trump and Republican members of Congress work on a replacement to the ACA, this month's survey finds that numerous law's major provisions continue to be quite popular, even across party lines". It stands to reason that just as policymakers are likely to rescind the hundreds of billions of dollars in Obamacare taxes imposed for the sole objective of funding this massive law, they should similarly rescind the "hospital tax", specifically the hundreds of billions of dollars in scheduled reductions to inflation updates and the Medicare and Medicaid DSH payments that help Arizona's hospitals care for uninsured, low-income, and disabled Americans.

One of the hallmarks of President Donald Trump's campaign rhetoric was repealing and replacing ObamaCare.

"It would take us back as if we're just turning the clock back to an earlier time", Byron, chairwoman of Virginia's Health Insurance Reform Commission, said on Wednesday.

Simply repealing Obamacare actually could make state differences more influential, according to a recent a recent study from Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute. You see, if people can get insurance when they are sick without penalty, then why would they pay premiums when they are well?

Counties help pay for medical care for people do not have insurance, he said, and county governments already spend one-fifth of their budgets on health care. Many have health care bankruptcy and debt stories to tell. If not for federal subsidies, small business owners and our customers would be priced out of the health insurance market entirely. With college dues and other financial hardships that young adults face in today's world, the average student will not be able to afford his or her own health insurance. "The question about how long it takes to effectuate the change, how long it takes to put these things in place, that's a question that the HHS [Department of Health and Human Services] can answer", he said.
