After days of acrimony between the Trump White House and the more conservative members of Congress, the golf date on Sunday between Senator Rand Paul and the president to discuss healthcare has raised optimism that ObamaCare may eventually be killed.
Representative Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) introduced legislation to repeal ObamaCare outright and hopes to force a floor vote on it.
A deal has not yet been reached between the White House and congressional Republicans on the American Health Care Act, the bill intended to repeal and partially replace ObamaCare. Many Republicans have been unable to rally around the bill, asserting that it breaks too many promises made to the American people during the 2012, 2014, and 2016 election cycles. The latest disappointment involved the removal of a provision intended to stop illegal immigrants from receiving health insurance coverage from the bill. The change has made an already widely unpopular bill even more so.
A great healthcare debate is taking place in the United States over whether the country should fix its healthcare system by simply tweaking ObamaCare, as seems to be the case with the new GOP healthcare plan, dubbed the American Health Care Act, or whether a completely different plan needs to be tried, but first, Americans need to decide what goals they want a healthcare system to accomplish.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) refuses to back down to Republican Party leadership on healthcare, calling the GOP plan "Obamacare Lite."
After watching the new documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, it is easy to see why the establishment is trying so hard to make sure you never watch it. At the very least, the movie raises some extremely troubling questions that absolutely must be answered, as quickly as possible. If the experts, doctors, parents, and others interviewed in the 91-minute film are even partially correct, millions of lives are being needlessly destroyed, and the cost to taxpayers will likely reach into the trillions of dollars.
