Tea Party Leader Tears Apart House Health Plan: Prices Will 'Skyrocket'

Source: Talking Points Memo


By CAITLIN MACNEAL Published MARCH 9, 2017, 8:51 AM EDT

Jenny Beth Martin, a co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, said on Thursday morning that she's not happy with the House Republican bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, arguing that it will increase health insurance costs even further.

"If it passes the way it is presented right now, the hard working taxpayers of this country will be forgotten once again," Martin told CNN's "New Day" after saying that the House bill will prompt health insurance prices to "skyrocket."

She said that she's been receiving hundreds of emails from fellow Tea Party menbers, and the majority are concerned about the bill.

"People are reminding me that we've stood in the snow, in the rain, in the hot summer heat again and again and again to oppose Obamacare, to work to get it repealed and to stand for health care freedom. What we're seeing out of the House of Representatives is not what we expected when we voted for majorities in the House and Senate, who promised us they would repeal Obamacare," Martin told CNN.

1. Should have thought about that when you were burning Obama effegees....

Oh wait...are YOU going to lose your ACA and NOW you figure what you've helped along will be horrible?? That's too fucking bad and in the end FUNNY....

8. Not sure what the TP's deal is, Bengus.

It seems that she's advocating total repeal and no replacement and is not the least bit concerned about losing ACA. Actually, I can't imagine any hardcore bagger complying with the mandate. Instead, they are likely covered under employer plans or are foregoing insurance altogether. And so far as the 20-25 millions of others who have benefitted from the ACA, they don't care one flying duck about them.

25. Maybe I am reading it wrong but she doesnt appear to suddenly be supporting the ACA rather

she sounds like one of the ones that want it gone and probably is pissed because she feels this one still does to much or in other words she sounds like one of the "people need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps" idiots.

You stood in the rain to repeal something you didn't understand, and now are complaining that the "fix" will make things worse since it's coming from the gang that can't shoot straight?

Complete idiot.

7. What a f**king bunch of idiots. In other words, it is better to have no healthcare than the ACA.

If they repeal the ACA, and either don't replace it, or replace it with something inferior, I hope they are the ones that receive the worst impact and injury from their actions. No group is more deserving of it

26. She and they are angry there would be ANY assistance for poor and black people, at all.

They dont see enough of us dying with this plan.

Going back to pre ACA guarantees lots of death and lives being destroyed, this is what they yearn for.

9. And now her group has a epiphany

you own your crap and now live with it.

AS soon as the idiots that put you in office come to realize that your a worthless and that they voted to put someone in there that has been bought by the Koch's Popes, Adleson's and vote you out the world will be much better off, because now lady, you will get a government retirement and you will get health care from the same people that you have hurt and now you have a epiphany, you are a hypocrite, and we the people should remind you of that every day


And then you had this idiot in your party, he is probably still in your right wing racists fascist party, let's go back and watch stupid

And he is in and was in the military, he doesn't realize that when you are in a military you have socialized medicine.

So in essence FU

13. Rs target just the 'heathcareDOT GOV website and leave the thousands of TV/other insurance sellers

alone. sure 20 million sign on to insurance plans through healthcare.gov and about 100 million get their insurance from TV ads, through work or other ways.

ALL INSURANCE HAS TO FOLLOW THE ACA PROTECTION LAWS but only we who got our insurance through healthcareDOT gov have someone, employees to call who watch out for us that Insurance Corps FOLLOW the ACA laws.

15. Which is worse for them? Insurance costs or taxes or regulations?

because a lot of regular people are going to get shafted by any Republican plan. Keep costs low then you don't have coverage regulations and they will refuse payment for care. Keep taxes low and you don't have money for community health clinics or emergency rooms.

A good portion of people will be unhappy no matter what, but the ACA does seem to be the biggest compromise we could expect to get that helps the most stakeholders. The liberal plan would be Medicare for all. The conservative plan is die quickly unless you have money.

22. This is what the Tea Party wants:

Yesterday, Jake Tapper had Mark Meadows (R-NC-Teabagger) on. This is Meadow's suggestion for bringing health insurance prices down:

Allow Insurance companies to sell catastrophic policies with deductibles of between $25,000 - $50,000!!!

I nearly fell off my chair.

23. "not what we expected..."

Wow!

Have they not been paying attention? Republicans have, by-and-large, been trying to increase the number of poor and indigent with every fiber of their being. Pick any policy that will improve the lot of the poor or middle-class and they're response is, in a nutshell, "Fuck 'em!".

And Republicans are not shy about it, either. They've repeatedly said what they're planning on doing and the rubes that voted for them didn't seem to care. Now when it starts to affect them they're all up in arms.



To anyone who voted Republican: We tried to warn you, but you wouldn't listen.

Cheap health care available to everyone? Well, there's a term for that and it's not supported by Republicans.

30. Tea Party morons

 

Tea Party morons will find their small town hospitals closing, their insurance gone, or priced beyond their ability to afford it, their rivers,lakes and streams polluted, their paychecks going down, their social security checks reduced, their children and grandchildren serving in the military fighting hopeless and needless wars, and their taxes increased to pay for the tax breaks being given to the rich and powerful. Good luck to them.
