What do you think about the new House passed bill to repeal and replace the ACA?
Unfortunately, it was voted down party line and no Democrats voted for it.
A few Conservative Republicans voted against it as a protest vote.
They thought it did not go far enough to reduce the federal government intervening in our health care.
This is only a start. Now, the Senate will take up the issue...
All I've heard so far is that insurance bills will rise into the thousands per month and that everyone is going to die. Maybe the illegals will take over.
It's another example of rich conservatives screwing everyone else. And their minions lap it up.
The ACA was failing. The repeal was an attempt to correct a broken system. How is this a conservative solution? When some conservative house members voted against it? Wise up.
Wise up yourself. Republican moderates voted against it because they didn't want to see 24 million people lose coverage.

And ACA "failing" is more propaganda garbage from Breitbart. National health care expenditures slowed dramatically after ACA passed in 2008. The so-called "failure" is a handful of counties that have only one insurer.
Here are some failures -

Of course it's not perfect. Keep what works and fix what's wrong. But even hospitals, medical associations and non-partisan institutions such as the CBO say the new bill is a disaster.
You posted the same link that I posted. The article says the majority of them were moderates.
Yes, it also say they were from blue states and trying to keep their job...
and some from the freedom caucus.
I am not a fan of the new proposal but that is where we are at. It is like a tooth paste. Once opened, we cannot put it back. Some elements of the ACA were needed, but overall, it was a failure. Call it what you wish but we needed a fix. Either we deal with it now, or worse later.
waiting for Trump to replace it with what he admires (or says he does - could be lying) as in
Australia's health care-for-all system.
Not holding my breath- that would be a pre-existing condition ( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°)

One of the first things conservatives want to do is repeal the ACA individual mandate designed to get healthy people into the insurance exchanges. Without them, premium costs WILL skyrocket ... meaning "if you think the 2017 rate hike was bad, you have seen nothing yet". As...
