Protecting Planned Parenthood Funding Was Why GOP Senators Collins And Murkowski Voted No On ACA Repeal

Senators Collins and Murkowski  killed the skinny repeal to protect Planned Parenthood funding.  Those 2 Repulicand must want to tap into the millions PP gives to politians.

Two of the senators who singlehandedly derailed the skinny repeal of Obamacare were awarded a sit down interview with the admiring Dana Bash Friday on CNN. The bright faced journalist applauded Sens. Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) for having the “cajones” to vote against the Republican bill when they knew half the country would view them as heretics.

Collins admitted it was an “uncomfortable” vote. But, they both insisted it was the right thing to do, which is why they did not fear backlash from GOP leadership, or even intimidating tweets from the Oval Office.

Both women said they were voting for their constituents, not the Republican Party.

“I made a statement to the president that I’m not voting for the party, I’m voting for the people of Alaska,” Murkowski recalled.

“I remember being so proud of you” for standing up to Trump, Collins said.

Part of standing up for their states, the senators argued, was protecting Planned Parenthood funding. Under the GOP bill, the massive pro-abortion organization would be defunded for a year.  TownHall

White House Launches New Website – Repeal And Replace Obamacare

Website – Repeal and Replace Obamacare 

The White House launched a new website Wednesday focused on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

“Obamacare has led to higher costs and fewer health insurance options for millions of Americans. The 2010 health care law has brought the American people rising premiums, unaffordable deductibles, fewer insurance choices and higher taxes,” the website states. “President Donald J. Trump promised to repeal and replace this disaster, and that is exactly what he is working with Congress to achieve.”

The new site features a video listing four ways Obamacare has failed the American people, including through higher costs, fewer choices, fewer covered and less freedom.

The site also lists an “Obamacare Fact of the Day,” with Thursday’s stating that 94 out of 99 counties in Iowa may have one insurance company selling coverage on Obamacare’s exchange next year. WashingtonExaminer

WaPo Actually Acknowledges That Single-Payer Health Care Isn’t Feasible

A government health care plan can be two of the three:  universal, affordable, quality.

If universal and quality then not affordable (would bankrupt the government).

If affordable and quality then not universal.

If universal and affordable then low quality.

The Washington Post made a stunning admission in their Sunday editorial that deviates from their left-wing bent: a single-payer health care system isn’t feasible in the United States.

The Post argued that while there are benefits to such a system, it would come at an “astonishing” price.

“When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) proposed a ‘Medicare for all’ health plan in his presidential campaign, the nonpartisan Urban Institute figured that it would raise government spending by $32 trillion over 10 years, requiring a tax increase so huge that even the democratic socialist Mr. Sanders did not propose anything close to it,” The Post wrote.

The Post added that the Urban Institute’s figure was likely correct because currently “the U.S. government spends more per American to cover a slice of the population than other governments spend per citizen to cover all of theirs,” so simply expanding the government’s involvement in health care wouldn’t be enough.

Additionally, the costs associated with single-payer would be politically unpopular.

“To realize the single-payer dream of coverage for all and big savings, medical industry players, including doctors, would likely have to get paid less and patients would have to accept different standards of access and comfort,” The Post wrote. “There is little evidence most Americans are willing to accept such tradeoffs.”  DailyWire

Wikileaks: Hillary Admits Her True Goal Is Canadian-Style Universal Healthcare

hillaryclintonGovernment run healthcare system: overburdened underpaid doctors, the best and brightest leave. surgery wait times sometimes can be fatal, poor standard of care, proven negligence that continues, pay a ton more in taxes…

A government manage something as complex as a healthcare system.  Like they do the Post Office, Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare?

Perhaps Hillary could have the Veteran’s Administration take over the health care for the entire country, because they have done such a sterling job already, right?

On Friday, WikiLeaks released excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches to Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and other major players—speeches which ultimately netted her some $22 million. One revelation: she admitted in 2014 that foreign countries were trying to hack her personal emails. Another eye-opening admission came during a speech she delivered in Canada in 2015, in which she revealed her true objective in healthcare reform: imposing Canadian-style universal healthcare in America.

In a (no doubt quite lucrative) speech for tinePublic Inc. in Saskatoon, Canada on Jan. 1, 2015, Clinton made clear that her intent was not simply to shore up Obamacare, but rather to “keep moving forward” with the ultimate goal of installing a single-payer, government-controlled healthcare system “like you have here in Canada”:

“So we’re in a learning period as we move forward with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. And I’m hoping that whatever the shortfalls or the glitches have been, which in a big piece of legislation you’re going to have, those will be remedied and we can really take a hard look at what’s succeeding, fix what isn’t, and keep moving forward to get to affordable universal healthcare coverage like you have here in Canada.”

The glimpse behind the Clinton curtain ends up revealing a lot what we thought we’d see, a deeply dishonest politician who spends a lot of energy obfuscating her true intentions. DailyWire
