    Another Study Confirms Obamacare Is The Unaffordable Care Act

    A recently released analysis by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) confirms what Democrats themselves have admitted: Obamacare has priced millions out of the market for health insurance.
    ...
    The large percentages of unsubsidized people dropping coverage in many states — in most cases, because they could not afford their rapidly escalating premiums — show the unstable nature of the Obamacare “marketplaces.” With only people who qualify for subsidies able to afford their premiums, most states’ insurance markets have become dependent on the morphine drip of subsidies from Washington.

    In other words, the preexisting condition provisions have proven the largest factor in pricing literally millions of people out of their health insurance coverage. This mean[ s ], ironically enough, such people now have no coverage should they develop any such condition.
    ...
    American people need to know the answers and need to understand the effects of Obamacare. Liberals wouldn’t have you know it, but families care more about the affordability of health coverage than about losing their coverage due to a preexisting condition. Reforms codified by the Trump administration will help provide portable and more affordable coverage to many Americans and represent one of several better solutions to tackle the preexisting condition problem.
    Imagine that, pre-existing conditions making coverage more expensive. It was purely predictable.

    Dead people don’t incur new medical bills. The people benefiting from the preexisting condition should be allowed to shut up and die so as not to inconvenience the rest of us. Nice.

    In other news, the GOP is slated to role out its new healthcare plan Wednesday.

    Thank heavens Trump had a shovel ready healthcare plan on Day One and repealed and replaced Obamacare as he promised.

    (1) Either put the subsidies back in, or

    (2) We are going to end up with Medicare For All.

    We won't be going back to the terrible way it was before 2010.

    The subsidies remain. The mandate was eliminated.

    Hopefully, we'll get something better. Neither Obamacare nor Medicare for all will work out well long term.

    Serious question: what do you think will actually work and work better than those two options or what was there prior.

    Honestly, at this point I don’t believe for profit insurance can be called anything but a negative for patients and the healthcare industry in general.

    Imagine that, if you pull out the various "supports" that make something work, it no longer works. It is much like a table, if you remove the legs than the table no longer works. While ObamaCare was never perfect, the fact remains that removing various provisions, as has been done since Republicans have still never been able to kill the Affordable Care act, kills its ability to be effective.

    And that better plan is in the same file as the President’s taxes, apparently.

    Wasn't Trump going to repeal "Obamacare" first thing after becoming president?

    It's been over 2.5 years. I think that at this point, we should call it Trumpcare.

    It is Trumpcare now, and if it is not improved, we are going to get Medicare for All or Single Payer.

    Turns out half-measures don't work. Let's join the rest of the civilized world and get Medicare for all, at long last.

    I doubt the House Intelligence Committee is investigating the minority party's health care plans.

    A poster is reminded that invisible plans are difficult to read.

    I know what you mean.

    That was the problem with Obamacare. Nancy Pelosi had to pass the legislation before anyone could read it.

    Failure of the ACA was anticipated by the architects who admitted that they relied on "the stupidity of the American voter". The ACA was an intermediate step towards single payer.

    A poster notes that there was something that had ink on paper.
