Viewpoints: GOP Con On Obamacare; Repeal Health Law And Return Taxes To People

THIS POST WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON THIS SITE Click Here To Read Entire Article

A selection of opinions on health care from around the country.

The New York Times: The Republican Health Care Con
Republicans say the Affordable Care Act provides health insurance that manages to be both lousy and expensive. Whatever the flaws of these policies, the new Trump administration is trying to pull off a con by offering Americans coverage that is likely to be so much worse that it would barely deserve the name insurance. It would also leave many millions without the medical care they need. (1/21)

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Repeal Obamacare
As its first act of 2017, Congress is set to repeal Obamacare through a process known as budget reconciliation. This will fulfill the promise made by congressional Republicans to reverse Obamacare’s higher health care costs, give patients better choices and finally end billions in wasteful spending. Repeal also is an opportunity for Congress to give Americans of all income levels more than a trillion dollars in lower taxes by repealing all of Obamacare’s new or higher taxes. Above all else, repeal of Obamacare should be hailed as a big win for middle-class families. (Grover Norquist and Brett Healy, 1/22)

USA Today: Obamacare Costs Way More Than It Should
When President Trump mentioned extending health insurance to everyone this month, it sounded like it could be pie in the sky — until you consider that the insurance he plans on replacing, Obamacare, is struggling under the weight of its own subsidies, regulations and restrictions. On his first day in office, Trump showed he recognized that with an executive order addressing just those issues. (Marc Siegel, 1/23)

Los Angeles Times: Donald Trump’s Executive Order On Obamacare Will Cripple The Health Insurance Market
The day after the election I wrote that Republicans would find it hard to repeal Obamacare — but not so hard to vandalize it. In his first official action after being sworn in as president, Donald Trump applied the first smear of graffiti to a law that today brings health coverage to more than 20 million Americans. The executive order Trump signed at the White House gives the Department of Heath and Human Services and other government agencies broad latitude to start undermining the law. It encourages them “to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” any provision of the law that would “impose a fiscal burden” on pretty much anyone — state, hospital, doctor, or patient. (Michael Hiltzik, 1/21)
