A bipartisan group of governors has a message for Senate leaders about health care reform: Slow your roll.

Republican governors John Kasich of Ohio, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts joined Democratic governors Steve Bullock of Montana, John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, John Hickenlooper of Colorado, and Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania in a letter Friday to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

“We have watched with great interest the recent debate and House passage of H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act,” the letter begins. “While we certainly agree that reforms need to be made to our nation’s health care system, as governors from both sides of the political aisle, we feel that true and lasting reforms are best approached by finding common ground in a bipartisan fashion.”

The AHCA in its current form is a total disaster.  700,000 people are going to lose their jobs!

The hypocrisy is also appalling. The same Republican senators that complained about Democrats creating the ACA behind closed doors (even though there was a year-long process of hearings, debates, townhalls, etc.) are now trying to pass this monstrous disaster without any hearings or input from anyone. I strongly believe if they do this and the president signs it, the Republicans will lose everything just like Democrats did in the 2010 midterm. The AHCA is polling at 17% and while some believe polls are obsolete in these times, seeing the angry protests in REPUBLICAN MAJORITY states should be enough to show you that poll is actually pretty accurate. It will create a deep rift between Congressional Republicans and Republican governors across the country also because of the disastrous effect it will have on the 19 Republican-controlled states that expanded Medicaid coverage. Here in South Carolina, Medicaid wasn't expanded yet the majority here do NOT want the ACA repealed and support a Medicaid expansion. Congressional Republicans may cause this state to get a Democratic governor again, something we haven't had since the 1998 election.

Obama lied.   Lots of people saw huge rises in their health insurance bills.

What about states that not only refused to set up their own exchanges, but also did whatever they could to make sure the legislation could not be fully executed? How can you call President Obama a liar when some conservatives in power caused many of the problems in most states, counties, cities and towns? Yes, the ACA has problems but many of those problems can be fixed. The Republicans are doing this to create extra tax cuts for the wealthy​ and voters know this; which is why protests are so big even in Republican-controlled states. This will break the Republican party no matter how much money they spend in ads for it. Gerrymandered districts cannot save you if the people in your district believe you're trying to harm them just to give tax cuts to the super wealthy.

Rises that would've happened with or without Obamacare.

Yes but the insurers set the prices too low initially.  The government suggested prices and the insurers didn't listen.  This caused years of increases when it really should have happened all at once.  The prices are just now in line with what the government had initially suggested and markets were beginning to stabilize in most places (not everywhere).

Also the media doesn't report that prices actually did go down in 2017 in three states, Massachusetts (not a surprise), Rhode Island (not a surprise), and Indiana (surprise).

I do have to give Mike Pence some credit.  He did what a politician is supposed to do.  He didn't like the plan that was presented to him so he asked the government for a waiver and did something a little different in his state.  While I don't like what  he did I will say that it is better than what most Republican governors did (which was nothing).

I'm not familiar with Sandoval and Baker.. but John Kasich is not a republican.  He belongs to the republican party, but he despises Trump so much that he is an honorary moonbat.  Talk about insane... Kasich stayed in the race until the very end.. even though he never had a chance of winning the nomination.  At least JEB! knew when to get out of the race.  In fact, the only other republican candidate that had a chance to win the nomination was Cruz.. but that was made impossible because Kasich wouldn't get out of the race.  

By the way.. what do you suppose the odds are that the Senate is going to be influenced by what some governors suggest?  Those odds would be zero.

Of course there were normal rises in the price.   DUH.

Obama-care caused massive rises for many people.    These were immediate jumps, due strictly to Obama-care. 

People now have to cover things why will never need and never use, such as ELECTIVE abortions.   My uncle is a youth minister, who is anti abortion except for rape and health of the mother (my view as well).  Now he has to pay for abortions on demand.   

Women use far more healthcare than men, but so before Obama-care they paid more based on usage.  Now men have to subsidize women's healthcare.   


Since we have Obama-care, ER's should be free of the thousands of cases per hour of "I gotta rash".     Funny how that didn't happen.
