White House presents new GOP health care plan to moderates, conservatives

Source: CBS News

"The White House has come up with a new proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told reporters Monday night. Meadows said Vice President Pence, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney met with the conservative House members Monday. Pence met with moderates earlier in the day. While Meadows said 'there is no deal, in principle,' he did refer to the proposal as 'a solid idea that was offered,' and said his caucus would evaluate its impact on premium costs. … The White House initiative on Capitol Hill comes just after another vocal opponent of the last Republican bill, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., spent the weekend playing golf with President Trump and talking about health care." (04/04/17)

    Most people seem to be blind to the fact that NO "replacement" will end the problems, since politicians and bureaucrats will continue to use it to further their own goals and control. And millions will continue to demand their needs be met with money stolen from other people.

    Unfortunately, it isn't possible to replace Obummercare alone with the actual free market – where everyone is responsible for themselves and their families, one way or anything. That's because everything else in the economy would have to be truly free market as well, with individuals and voluntary associations responsible for their lives and property – and their health/healthcare.

    As long as the non-voluntary government blocks – and even punishes- that individual liberty, and as long as people continue to believe that the government has some legitimate power to do so… nothing will change. Except probably for the worse.
