Top GOP: O-Care Here To Stay, Amnesty In August

From the Spokane, Washington Spokesman-Review:

The McMorris Rodgers says ACA likely to stay

By Kip Hill | April 25, 2014

With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said it’s unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed.

“We need to look at reforming the exchanges,” the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday…

There is no reforming this.

McMorris Rodgers has been part of the Republican leadership in the House that has voted multiple times to repeal parts or all of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. GOP members have said the law is unworkable, will increase costs for some and force others into inadequate coverage or plans they don’t want. McMorris Rodgers continued those criticisms Thursday, but said the framework established by the law likely will persist and reforms should take place within its structure…

The framework of Obama-Care is designed to redistribute healthcare. It will never get better until the framework is removed.

The congresswoman also said that the 85 percent of enrollees who received Medicaid coverage is a sign the program is not sustainable and many will receive subpar care. “You’re seeing where they’ve had to reduce programs for the very people it’s meant to help,” McMorris Rodgers said. “Somebody’s going to have to pay the bill.” …

Not to mention that 87% of those who have signed up for private insurance through Obama-Care are getting taxpayer subsidies.

Cited as a priority issue by many members of Congress and Obama, 2013 came and went without an immigration package, to the chagrin of many advocacy groups. McMorris Rodgers said she still thinks a deal could be struck before the election. “I believe there is a path that we get a bill on the floor by August,” she said.

And she will be on a path to spending more time with her family, come November.

A bipartisan plan was passed in the Senate last spring but made no headway in the Republican-controlled House. McMorris Rodgers echoed the concern brought up by many in the chamber, saying she wants to see stronger border security.

But she said she’d support a bill that grants legal status to those undocumented immigrants working toward citizenship, allowing them to remain in the country to work and go to school while they wait their turn in the current system. “We’re going to have to push that this is a legal status, not amnesty,” she said…

Green Card holders qualify for Obama-Care and Medicaid. So these 11 million illegal aliens (and their extended families) are going to get Medicaid or Obama-Care.

How will that be ‘sustainable,’ Ms. McMorris Rodgers?
