Opponents of the law in the newly-elected Congress, now dominated by Republicans, seek to replace Obama’s Affordable Care Act with their own healthcare reforms.

Anyone know what these reforms might be, because the only reforms I hear about are “no health insurance for you”.

Republicans have been claiming to have a replacement for Obamacare since the law was passed in 2010 and have yet to share it with American citizens. Imo, this is just another bogus talking point.

Republicans have been BSing about these “reforms”

1) Caps on malpractice awards. (Done in Texas—hasn’t slowed the cost of health care)

2) Sell insurance across state lines (Passed in Georgia and NO companies have taken advantage of that)

3) Tax credits for purchasing insurance (Lets see people working minimum wage take advantage of that—They won’t!)

4) Don’t forget the wisdom of Joni Ernst who assures us that the churches will take care of the truly needy (I’ll believe that when Pulpit Pimp Joel 0$teen sells his $10 million mansion and pay medical bills for the needy with that)

I almost hope the Supreme Court incorrectly rules that the federal exchange can’t provide subsidies, though it would be idiotic. All the red states, faced with the utter destruction of their individual health insurance markets, would then have little choice except to take some ownership of Obamacare and open their own exchanges. In fact, that is why I think the Court won’t rule that way, because blackmailing states with the threat of destroying their health insurance markets is the kind of coercive act the Court forbade in its previous ACA decision when it ruled that the states could not be coerced into expanding Medicaid.

Because this never gets old, the GOP healthcare plan:

1) Don’t get sick.

2) If you do get sick, die quickly.

IMO, saying this in Congressional debate was Alan Grayson’s finest moment.

Ha.

You expect the courts Conservative wing to actually be consistent on something?

If it suits the Conservative Money Making Organization to rule in a certain way and if the Chief Justice doesn’t have a crisis of conscience like he did in the summer of 2012, then they will rule in that direction, with Ginsberg writing and extremely eloquent dissent as always.
