Conservative Republicans unveil Obamacare replacement plan

Cillizza on Trump's plan: There is no plan


(CNN)Months after President Donald Trump declared the GOP would become the "party of health care," House conservatives are set to announce a sweeping health care proposal -- one that has virtually no chance of becoming law.


The Republican Study Committee on Tuesday unveiled what members described as a "framework," nine months in the making, even as the White House continues to develop its own set of principles behind closed doors. It includes no legislative text and does not have the formal backing of the White House or broader GOP conference. The conservatives behind it hope the plan could help inoculate Republican congressional candidates against the perception that Republicans have no ideas for fixing a system they've vowed to destroy.


But the proposal comes as the attention of Washington is focused squarely on the mushrooming impeachment scandal engulfing Trump's presidency. And it recycles some of the policies that Republicans tried and failed to advance during the 2017 health care debate, when they controlled both chambers of Congress. That raises questions about how they plan to get a different result a second time around.


The conservative caucus says its plan, titled "A Framework for Affordable, Personalized Care," will protect coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, a top priority for many Americans. The concern that Republicans would weaken the Affordable Care Act's protections helped doom the GOP plan to repeal and replace the law in 2017 and was one reason Democrats, many of whom ran campaigns focused on health care, recaptured the House in the 2018 midterm elections.

The plan contains several elements that were in those 2017 replacement proposals, which narrowly fell short of enough Republican support to pass the Senate at the time. It would create federally-funded, state-run insurance pools to cover people with high-cost illness. For instance, states could establish high-risk pools, which existed before the Affordable Care Act with mixed levels of success, or institute reinsurance programs to stabilize the health care market. .................................

1. This is a non-story designed to distract from the impeachment hearing.

Repugs care nothing about health care and never have as them and their families have a great plan they get from the government.

Imagine that, the party of small government have a great plan furnished by the government.

2. This seems nothing more than a plan's name

Everything in it (so far) is a throwback, especially the same old "high risk pools."

4. Their plan is POOP.

Pay Out Of Pocket.

Their idea of "personalized care" is that you can personally choose whether to pay from your inherited trust fund, from your $1M annual income, from selling a few excess diamonds, grifting from your daddy, or just die.

9. Not sure which is more broken, the government or the health care system.

Ask other countries that have pulled off Health Care for citizens, there are plenty of them?

11. Much the same as GOPers' previous "plans." Their campaign mantra is quoted at the end.

"Do you want a president who wants to have the government take over your health care, or do you want personal choices?"

We know it's junk, but a lot of people will be persuaded if we are not careful.

13. Drink a glass of Detriot water and stick a coat hanger where the sun don't shine.

Then call me in the morning.

I think that about covers a conservative republican health-care plan.

"At his first post-election press conference on Wednesday, president-elect Donald Trump said he will release his own plan to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act shortly after taking office. What he didn’t say is what that plan will be or how it will work."

17. "state-run insurance pools to cover people with high-cost illness" is not real health insurance

Only a single risk pool is real health insurance. Peeling off sick people into their own "pool" just balkanizes the system so sick people pay enormous sums and/or get inadequate care.

18. It's the.....

"die in the gutter" plan. If you can't afford whatever the insurance industry feels like charging you, well, go die in the gutter somewhere. And do it quickly, if you don't mind, reducing the surplus population. Seems I've heard that somewhere before. Oh, and did I mention, I hate Rethugs?
