Boehner Promises An Obama-Care Replacement

From The Hill:

Boehner: ObamaCare replacement coming

By Russell Berman | 01/16/14

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday predicted that House Republicans would unveil — and possibly vote on — a plan to replace the healthcare law in 2014, fulfilling a long-delayed promise to voters.

An alternative to ObamaCare will be “one of the big issues” the House GOP will discuss at its annual policy retreat at the end of the month, Boehner said.

As usual, the Democrats set the agenda by pushing some new radical socialist scheme. And the Republicans counter with a slightly less radical socialist scheme. Thereby giving the left a half a loaf every time.

While the party has repeatedly run on a pledge to “repeal and replace” President Obama’s signature law, GOP lawmakers have never coalesced around a single alternative. Boehner is now facing mounting pressure from conservatives who say the party cannot continue to merely denounce the unpopular ObamaCare as a means of winning elections.

“It’s one of the big issues for conversation in terms of our agenda for this year, and I think you’ll see Republicans come forward with a plan to replace ObamaCare,” Boehner said Thursday, “a plan that will actually reduce costs for the American people and make health insurance more accessible.” …

How about this as an alternative healthcare plan: ‘If you like your current plan, you can keep it’? — Wouldn’t that take care of all of the problems with Obama-Care in one fell swoop? And it would be extremely simple to implement. Since it’s what we used to have until the beginning of this year. And, after all, it’s what we were promised.

But, no, the Republicans have to come up with their own form of Obama-Care. To prove that they have ‘vision.’

    Typical clueless GOP response. We don’t want an Obamacare replacement – we want the gov’t to get the *^&#*%$ out of the way. Unbelievable.

      Republican Party once again playing the part of the ugly kid with no cocaine at a party of hookers and criminals, telling anyone who’ll listen “Me, too! Me too!”

      I’m serious. Obama’s 80 million dollar O Care replacement Richard Simmons video to sell Obama Care from the 80 million dollar funds for Obama Care commercials made by the stars.

      Fox News was serious too when they reported and showed this. This is not a spoof, and it’s possible Richard Simmons offered to do it free. In case you forgot he was popular in the 80’s after losing weight and having extensive surgery to remove loose skin. Maybe if I watch it again I catch on and figure why the one goof on the floor lifts his levitates his butt in the hair.

      oops. Here’s the video you have to wade through a couple of minutes of boring to watch the other guy grind (twirk) against Richard Simmons.

      LA Times: Obama looks to Hollywood to help promote his healthcare law

      Sept 20, 2013|By Maeve Reston

      Wedged into the blotter on Mike Farah’s desk at the Funny or Die studios in Hollywood is an index card with a list —

      Farah’s drive stems from a series of White House meetings, culminating in a July session in the Roosevelt Room in which the president asked for help promoting the law from a conference table full of artists, entertainers and creative executives including Farah, Amy Poehler, Jason Derulo, Michael Cera and Jennifer Hudson.

      And as one healthcare law advocate noted, it would be difficult for the Department of Health and Human Services to match the punch of singer-songwriter Derulo’s Twitter message directing his 2.3 million followers to sign up at healthcare.gov
      (especially now that his single “Talk Dirty” is knocking Katy Perry’s “Roar” off the singles charts).

      Though the administration will not detail the full budget, it has announced pieces: a multimillion-dollar ad buy this fall, the $150 million parceled out to community health centers for outreach and $67 million in grants for so-called navigators, who are helping consumers enroll in health coverage.

      Young Invincibles[sic] has developed mobile phone apps to connect elusive younger people with the resources they need to sign up, …

      Pew survey findings that African Americans and Latinos — groups with higher rates of uninsured — tend to use their phones more than other devices to get information about services available to them.

      “Valerie Jarrett loved this video,” Farah said, referring to Obama’s trusted aide.


      I’ll bet it was NSA Data and not any survey company that came up with minorities getting most their information from cell phones and the real reason they are studying all the minutes used by those who got “free phones”.
