    The Senate figured out how to get around pre-existing conditions.

    Leave it to the state. That's their "plan".

    Oh, and call it "flexible". Their new code word for "you're f*cked!".

    She is talking about the proposed replacement to ACA. In the bill instead of mandating that all insurance companies cover everyone with pre existing conditions, it will be left up to each individual state to decide if insurance companies have to cover everyone regardless of health.

    Which of course would make healthcare unaffordable for anyone with a pre-existing condition. And every body get's sick. No one is immortal.

    It always surprises me how little people who come to the USMB know when it comes to politics. Or else, it's about denial. You have to have an open mind and eventually, the facts will settle out.

    For instance, I never believed Trump actually stiffed his workers. Who would do such a thing. Turned he did. Many times. Eventually, there were so many facts in print, the truth simply could not be denied.

    The buzz words they use, 'flexible' and 'choice'. The choice is they leave it to the states to deny coverage to people and do away with all the provisions of Obamacare that people like. Why? Because local press for a state that throws millions off of healthcare is miniscule compared to the national coverage of Republicans in Congress ending 25 million people's healthcare.

    A national shell game. "Guess where the pea is! Nope, wrong one! Guess again!".

    So this new healthcare bill being written from a "blank page" by the Senate has been released for inspection? Has it gone to the CBO?

    Look at these Republicans:
    Duh, uh, what does that mean, duh.

    Until they actually get whacked, they will say I don't see anything coming.

    Well, McConnell doesn't have much faith in getting enough Republican votes. Trump said ACA is dead and it will be if they don't fund it. We'll see what 2018 has to offer sometime this summer.
