Tuesday Off-Topic (Moderated) Open Thread (071817)

  1. Ding dong, ObamaCare is dead. News reports are saying McConnell is bringing up a straight repeal bill with a 2 year delay on current Medicaid recipients. They should have done this in January, but better late than never.

    When Trump signs the full repeal bill we should party!!!! Thereafter, employment will take off without the load of the 29 hour full time definition and other nonsense.

    I am so looking forward to the shrieking of Democrats. The nation needs a good dose of primal scream therapy.

    Of course, the US Chamber of Commerce will have fainting fits since their ultimate goal of single payer dumping employer sponsored health insurance as a benefit onto the backs of the citizens will be lost. Sorry fellas, the cost of health insurance as part of the benefits package comprising of total compensation is not going away. So also no to your cheap illegal aliens as well, we aren’t going to pay for that either. This was the real reason for ObamaCare, did you really believe illegal aliens were paying their medical bills when they went to the emergency room? ObamaCare and illegal immigration were part and parcel, you can’t have one without the other.

  3. I’ll believe it when I see it. Maine Senators and McCain could torpedo it.

  4. #1, I really hope you’re right but like Tom said, I’ll believe it when I see it.

  5. #3, looks like your prediction came to pass. So now because of 3 GOP Senators, ObamaCare will implode with the resulting collateral damage to millions of Americans.

    It’s time to push hard the Medical Cost Sharing Ministries as the solution to the problems caused by self serving politicians.

    Upshot, not only are we going to get rid of 18 Democrat Senators up for re-election, we are going to have to primary (GOP) several others who go along with the liberal elitists.
