    Don’t worry We will replace Obamacare with a series of metaphors

    A rug, A bridge, A house without a goat in it, A construct.

    This is not a series of nonsense words in a random order — well, it is, but it is also exactly what the GOP majority in Congress and Donald Trump’s nominee for health and human services secretary, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), have been saying they will replace Obamacare with ...

    Poor, minorities, unemployed most likely to lose insurance if Obamacare is repealed
    Big surprise

    The poor, unemployed, and minorities are most likely to lose health insurance if Congress repeals the Affordable Care Act, researchers say. And because these groups tend to suffer from more health problems in the first place, the Republican plan to dismantle the ACA is likely to hurt those who are most vulnerable ...

    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 GOP’s Plan for Pre-Existing Conditions Has a Huge Loophole

    As Republicans begin taking steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act, both GOP leaders and President Donald Trump have claimed that they will keep the law’s popular provision that states insurers cannot discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions — either by denying them coverage or charging them more.

    But if the GOP’s yet-to-be-unveiled Obamacare replacement plan is anything like what Tom Price — Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Health and Human Services — has proposed in the past, tens of millions of people could in fact lose their insurance, or pay significantly more for it, because of pre-existing conditions ...

    Obamacare Repeal: The Big Difference Between ‘Access’ and ‘Coverage’

    Meanwhile, President Trump last Friday signed an executive order directing federal agencies to do what they can to weaken the Affordable Care Act, while it was a largely symbolic act, it heightened the uncertainty for the millions of Americans covered under the law.

    Could they lose their health insurance under an Obamacare replacement, short answer: yes; having access to care isn’t the same thing as having insurance, says Michael Tanner, senior fellow at the right-leaning Cato Institute ...

    GOP Senators offer ACA replacement plan that would let states keep Obamacare

    WASHINGTON -- A few GOP senators are selling their plan with the same language former President Obama used to sell his.

    Republicans think if you like your insurance you should keep it,” Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy said Monday. “And we mean it” ...

    I find it interesting that the people who don't have ACA, are the ones who want to repeal it
