President Trump

When President Donald Trump took the oath of office in January, he wasted no time dismantling former President Barack Obama's legacy. Obama had hoped to be remembered as the president who reformed healthcare in America and freed the gays.

Now Obama's signature piece of legislation -- the Affordable Care Act, nicknamed Obamacare, is in jeopardy.

Members of the GOP voted on the House floor today to pass President Trump's new healthcare bill. The GOP had the necessary votes (217) to repeal and replace Obamacare without a single vote from the Democrats.

Recall that Obamacare was passed without a single vote from Republicans in 2010.

There are still a few hurdles along the way to repealing Obamacare. The vote will go to the Senate -- which is controlled by Republicans. But analysts say the Senate will certainly make changes to Trump's healthcare plan before it passes in the Senate.

The next stop after that is President Trump's desk.

Today is a huge victory for President Trump's young presidency.

    Now grow some balls democrats/Independents and wrap it around their necks like they did yall! Make them own Trumpcare!

  • bemetoo

    Lmao we shall see how this plays out

  • SirVeil

    I totally understand. I'm with my Love now and she is pregnant with my first. But prior to her I had a long-standing relationship with a male doctor I met in college. I was 25 and he was 42. He left his wife for me. We had a wonderful life together intellectually, sexually, monetarily etc. The benevolence I learned from him at a young age has propelled me to great success in other loves, my family and career. He will always be one of my paramount friends and confidants. In order to consider this type of lifestyle and be open about it takes a very high-level of thinking. Good on Barack annnnnnD Sandra! Lest we not forget.

  • bemetoo

    About 20 million Americans gained healthcare coverage under President Barack Obama's 2010 Affordable Care Act, nicknamed Obamacare.

    So if trumpcare passes senate at least 14 million will lose health care ..Wtf Sandra how is this good news?

  • Renee26

    Ummmmm how is this related to the post??

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I kept reading thinking that I would read something about this.........NOPE!!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I don't know what to think about this. Obamacare has its advantages but its far from perfect. Nevertheless, it just feels like the Republican Party is declaring war on poor people with this repeal.

    Y'all know I'm a Republican. But if you're gonna repeal, then make sure you have something in place that doesn't screw over 40 million low income people.

    I understand that change is needed when a program is flawed, but often, change comes at the expense of the most vulnerable people in our society and that I don't like.

    I wonder if some Trump voters are regretting that vote right about now...

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Yup.....go on and name it just that TRUMPcare and make sure they remember what it is everyday!!

  • Renee26

    Yes...that is exactly what it should be called...so when the issues arise they can look right at Dump as if he wrote it himself

  • Renee26

    Same LMAO

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    40 million low income people.
    Not even just low income- middle class, seniors, who worked their azzes off and now this.
    But they got a "win" and he held to one of his promises, so they happy!

  • Tammie Reed

    Our health care is so screwed up! EVERY year we apply, they say ok, its a go then a few weeks later we get a letter in the mail saying we've been canceled because of our income! They knew our income when we applied!!!! Why even freaking bother... Smh!

  • Renee26

    All of those with pre-existing conditions are already showing their disappointment

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Clown

  • JV

    Long way to go before this becomes law. The first Congressional Budget Office report estimated that the old AHCA/Ryancare bill would leave 24 million more uninsured by 2020; it's probably going to be a lot worse now that the new bill allows states to opt out of guaranteeing coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.
    The Senate will probably try to dramatically alter it to save their own skin, and THEN it would have to be sent BACK to the House to be voted on again. Look, this whole thing is terrible, and they know that. This is just for show -- to make it look like they can govern -- and I don't think it ever actually becomes law.

  • Renee26

    This....my mother signed up for supplemental insurance through the Marketplace then was told she didn't qualify after being approved...then when tax time came she was hit with a bill for the Marketplace insurance anyway...it's been a mess ever since

    Companies are opting out, leaving some states with nothing.
    Deductibles and rates are astronomical for those having to carry the weight of the ACA.
    It isn't working. It is failing.
    If you want to have an effect on it, chime in. All of this armchair prophecy is worthless. Especially if you weren't there to complain when Democrats were creating the ACA without a single Republican. Pendulum swings, doesn't it?

  • Wile E. Coli

    No one has a clue if that is true or not. And those 20 million Americans who have insurance now, paid by hard working people , many of whom LOST their insurance, will have to work a little harder and start paying a little more. There is no free lunch or we would all be eating it.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong
  • Phillybruh

    Only Aetna is opting out because they aren't making the money that they would have if certain mandates weren't in place. Aetna is a piece of sh%t insurance company anyway.

  • Tiffani Zumba

    Unbelievable..: (

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    And it will go back to status quo of people without insurance clogging up the er for simple issues because they know that the er cannot refuse them which will a cost to the health system..

  • the guest

    Agreed. There was absolutely no reason to change Obamacare. Even impoverished hateful bigots got to go to the doctor for the first time in a long time thanks to Obamacare. Guess they like bike wrench and screwdriver at home dental care.

  • JV

    "It isn't working. It is failing."

    Even if you believe that, that doesn't make the AHCA a better alternative. And the Democrats at least waited until the CBO came out before voting (it came out a day before the vote on the ACA); this new version we have no idea. It's like buying a car without knowing the price or the mileage. Because states can opt of guaranteeing pre-existing conditions, this version is likely to be worse in that regard.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I have Aetna and that would be correct.

    But according to Matt Lewis- we can all just go to the ER for medical care.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    The thing is even Pres. Obama said it would need tweaks to it, as it was a pilot program.

  • Wile E. Coli

    At the moment. But other companies have already take that route in some states as well. BC, etc. Aetna isn't the first one to do it. This from 2013:

    https://www.insurance.ca.gov/0400-news/0100-press-releases/2013/release053-13.cfm
    "Second major insurer pulls out of California market. "

    Fewer insurers, less competition, higher prices, less care.

    "Aetna is a piece of sh%t insurance company anyway"

    They all are. But that's irrelevant.

  • the guest

    Beautifully stated. I think many Trump voters regret voting for him. He used poor white people as pawns in his rhetoric.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Even if I believe that? lol.
    The Democrats didn't give a shit about the CBO. They were storming and ramming and they had to 'Read the bill before they knew what was in it" Yup, now what was that about buying a car without knowing the price?

  • Wile E. Coli

    "So if trumpcare passes senate at least 14 million will lose health care"

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    For all of you Azzholes (Yes, you ARE azzholes) who are yahoo'ing about this......you better pray everyday that next month you don't develop a serious illness that requires long term care and then by October you lose your job, as you will then be a person with a pre-existing illness to whatever new insurance you have to apply for and then you have to pray that your state did not opt out.

    Go ahead and buy some knee pads for all the praying you are about to do.

    And oh.......go to hell with the excitement over a plan that will more than likely send millions of elderly people to an early grave, since they will have to decide between medical and food.

    True. It's like Trump just has a spirit of darkness and meanness attached to him.

  • JV

    What will happen is: The Senate will ratify/make changes to the bill because it guts popular provisions of Obamacare. The ratified bill -- which will need another vote in the House, just like today -- will in turn piss off the hardline conservatives in the House, and when the bill goes down for a re-vote in the House it'll fail.

    We aren't going to cover you any longer, The health insurance company I work for is the largest in PA. Yall will be dropped by next enrollment period.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Most of these people forget that the framework for Obamacare was set up by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative group... And its first implementation was in Massachusetts under Republican governor Mitt Romney. The Heritage Foundation plan was actually offered up as a conservative alternative to "HillaryCare" back in the day.

    This is more about erasing Obama's legacy than doing what's right for the American people. The main reason Republicans are so against the Affordable Care Act /Obamacare is because a black man has his name on it.

  • Cheese eggs

    I agree.....you only have to look at his face and you can see it.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I ain't forget and I ain't forget that folks (conservatives included) used this as an example of how great a president and leader Romney would be.

    Yup, this is simply about finding the subject that people hate the most,but are the most ignorant about.
    Still laugh over people wanting ACA, but wanting to get rid of ObamaCare. And folks screaming that ObamaCare raised their premiums...um NO, the insurance companies did, because A. they always do and B. this would insure you hated ACA.

    I believe President Obama tried to get single payer, but didn't have the votes even with majorities in both houses.
    Universal, single payer would be ideal, but with a Republican House & Senate, no way would it even get a floor vote. Even if we had the majority in both Houses and sent it to Dump to sign, he would veto.

  • cherrypie

    The real problem is that conservative republicans HATE the fact that a black man was a former president. Deep seeded racism is the real culprit. It was when Obama was elected and it still lingers today. These cowards can't admit that their problem is not with ACA but with the first black president who proposed it. Also, it's expected that you will have self-hating black men and women who co-sign this foolery. SMH.

  • Mbailey

    IT'S not going to win in the Senate because tRump does not want this bill to have his name. And the reason why ACA wasn't as good as it could have been is because the Party of No were determined to make President Obama a one term president. They actually the ones who phugged up ACA as we know it.

    I'm wondering how this will affect Medicaid and Medicare. And getting health insurance with or without a job is still expensive, so how will this help or hurt people who already have health insurance and for those who need it??? It makes no sense that people are without health insurance and those that have it still say that it is super expensive. Some people that have Medicaid or Medicare still have trouble paying for prescriptions and co-pays. People that are poor and/or elderly will continue to suffer. Jobs, healthcare, affordable childcare, social security - all seem like they will continue to be a HUGE problem in this country.

    That's the problem, a lot of people are unemployed and many parents cannot afford childcare even with state assistance. So how do we solve those problems??? We need more flexible jobs in my opinion that pay a hell of a lot more and we need more responsible and affordable daycare centers. Minimum wage or $10 or even $15 an hour doesn't cut it for most households with children, we all know that. And let's not start blaming women because these are our bodies and you cannot tell a woman what to do with hers. If she has a million kids, she has to find a way to care for all of them, and minimum wage doesn't cut it! (And no, I do not have a million kids, I only have one so far!)

  • NicoleZee

    If a person is poor or unemployed, they cannot afford those rates. Those are considerations that Congress should make when thinking or repealing and trying to improve the healthcare problem. Even for those that have good jobs, you have to consider others that do not and that struggle to make ends meet.

  • NicoleZee

    I think prevention is key. The government needs to help initiate more programs for healthy living. Everyone should be informed of how to live healthier and have access to healthier food choices. Organic food and other healthier food items are not just for those with higher incomes. Plenty of poor people want to eat healthy as well. That's why I can't stand Whole Foods; they market to the wealthy and more educated, which is discriminatory. But Kroger is the most loved grocer in America right now according to a new study, and they have plenty of organic and healthy food items. I hope that the SNAP program continues, at least those with limited income can still eat well, even though many households that get food stamps still suffer from not having enough food.

    While all of that is true, even with a financial plan, plenty of people cannot afford the payments period. Since you are required to pay the fee upfront at a physicians office, they go to the hospital.

    I guess we can be happy that EMTALA stopped folks from being refused at the hospital and therefore not dying in the street

  • Mbailey

    IT didn't help did it. When adults surpass the children in acting like kids, you can't express surprise or anguish when you get a cartoon president in a cartoon world. Acting stupid is easy. Time to be serious, because that b.s. Didn't work for you and Cartoon Arse got in while you were busy Kee-keeing and passing around cartoons.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    True, however it is a fact that I have to live with. Mine was silent as hell, had every test done and it wasn't until they removed my uterus (and cervix which was optional) that I was diagnosed.
    Had I not had kept pushing to find out the cause of one issue, I could have died.

    Now I have 1 more year, before they deem me free and clear. That is my reality, that is a lot of people's reality.

    And the worse part is that if I had NOT had medical coverage and/or a job that I could afford medical with.....I would be dead. And this is the reality of plenty of people prior to ACA.

    Since that, I have changed jobs, so I came to my new job with a pre-existing condition..........no one should have to live with that fear.

    Nope, I was informing folks with words, and unlike you, my words encouraged and did not detract from what I was saying.

  • NicoleZee

    You still get charged. With most insurances, you have to pay co-pays before you see a provider sometimes and some prescriptions have co-pays as well. That also applies to Medicaid and Medicare. It varies, but many times, even with Medicaid, a provider might charge a small co-pay or the pharmacy may inform you that there is a co-pay for your prescription. And for those without insurance, they can see a doctor at many clinics on a sliding fee scale. But there again, there is still some type of fee involved.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    This wasn't a credit or even him saying he liked black people....it was jsut the truth. A full blown racial truth, just like Dump saying what he felt about running as a republican.

  • Mbailey

    MEDIA does not care. They gave this man a free ride all throughout his run-up to the Dump House. If this were Barack they would be screaming and the Party of No would have shut him down. They are playing "cute" right now, by pretending to be "amazed" while doing nothing.

  • Mbailey

    WHY do we have to depend on others? We've got to do this shyt ourselves. There are several seats coming up to vote in many states, and people need to get their arses in gear and vote non-republicans into those congressional seats.

    But what's so funny, no matter how they try to tarnish Obama or erase him.... Trump will still go down as the least popular pres in the history.

  • Luvn_it

    He doesn't he said himself in an interview he missed his old life, he didn't think being President would be this hard. But of course b/c it's her Massa Trump Sandra nots going to report on that b/c it doesn't show him in a "positive" light.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I never knew that he had actually made this statement. Mind blowing that he did & people still say in all seriousness that there is no racism.
    Then to read abt him putting snakes in the trunk of his car to scare Blacks.

    I doubt this bill will pass the senate, however, many will suffer which the author of this poorly written article fails to mention.

  • The Last Word

    The Republican plan will drive up rates, reduce coverage, and force people off Medicaid rolls.

    The only people who make out well are the self-employed (assuming they are able to stay healthy, and thus forego plans with more than minimal coverage) and the corporations paying the 2 percent tax which presently funds the ACA.

    Repeal of the ACA is essentially a massive tax windfall for the wealthy.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Rates will only go down for healthy people but people with pre-existing conditions will be forced like cattle into high risk pools which always fail because they are underfunded.

    I just finished texting with a friend who is on Obamacare and voted for Trump.

    He's so giddy with hatred that he doesn't even understand that the bill has to clear the Senate and Trump has to sign it before it becomes law.

    He admits that he doesn't know what's in the bill but he trusts Trump so much that he believes it will be better than Obamacare.

    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    NicoleZee:I think prevention is key. The government needs to help initiate more programs for healthy living

    Like Michelle Obama's public school healthy eating initiative which Trump replaced with junk food the other day.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It's not going to pass the Senate because too many Republican Senators who represent states that took the Medicaid expansion and many Republican governors who took the Medicaid expansion have come out against this bill because it cuts Medicaid by 25%.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No too soon.

    Pound all the Republicans who voted for this with negative ads

    Take them out first then about June of next year begin talk of single payer after the consequences of the failure of GOP governance becomes apparent.

  • Coffee1st

    "He trusts Trump"??? Oh my. The delusion is REAL.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You sound ignorant enough to be a Trump voter.

    Let me give you a mini-civics class.

    This only passed the House. It still has to pass the Senate.

    The problem is Democrats can filibuster the bill unless McConnell nukes the legislative filibuster.

    Even if the Senate can pass a bill it has to go into conference with the House and has to be passed again by the House which is doubtful because it will be more moderate than what passed today and would lose many votes from the Freedum Caucus.

    Obamacare will be the law of the land for the foreseeable future.

    So take your hateful Trump loving a$$ and sit down in the corner somewhere.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I hope your rich, because you are losing your healthcare. Premiums were already rising before ACA, he made the bleeding stop, not its going to overflow. SMH!

  • A D N

    Two problems regarding healthcare still isn't fixed. Poor people need healthcare they can afford, but people with money do not want to pay for things others can't afford. Medical professional fees are so expensive to fixate the cost of those not paying their medical bills. This is an ongoing problem with America...the poor want/need the rich to help pay for their food, shelter, childcare expenses, and now healthcare. Why can't we get beyond greed?

  • Calikush

  • bemetoo

    Trump’s healthcare plan would raise premium costs for older enrollees, scale back Medicaid coverage for poor adults, and make it harder for people with pre-existing conditions to get affordable coverage. So therefore would cause millions of people to lose health Care no matter if its 1 million or 14 million american will still lose health care. I think you need to do some research on trumpcare

  • Traci404

    The problem is this impacts ALL HEALTHCARE INSURANCE

  • Wile E. Coli

    "Rates were never down, they have been steadily increasing "

    They have to be down to increase at all.
    Yes, there is profit in lower premiums if it sells more plans.
    And once they remove all of the nonsense we had to pay for with ACA, rates can be lower.

    Wrong.............WE ain't have ish because Obama is BIRACIAL.Obama is as White as he is Black,infact he was socialized to be White,but zombies like you think that idiot has love for you.

    Obama was born out of a white mama just like every other white person.The Black he has is not AMERICAN but Blacks like you are on that basic level,so you won't get my point.

    You zombies are too BASIC because like whites who despise his white mama,because it remind them what he has in common with THEM,you despise his white mama,because you know that DOES NOT make him Black.I deal that with that truth.

    President Trump is MY president more than Obama was ever YOUR president....Dude miss me with your "Fake News" rantings.....

  • Phillybruh

    But the people on Obama care were paying for their insurance the subsidies just offset the costs depending on income. So I guess you have to get a job now, because there is no way you can believe the costs of insurance is going to go down now.
