The debate on the Republican health care bill is really heating up. The House and Senate bills are pretty much the same and this bill has been presented before, it’s Paul Ryan’s bill. He passed this bill in 2011. House Speaker Paul Ryan has been against the”entitlements” since he came to Congress, and he always starts by attacking Medicaid. They say Medicaid is in trouble, with not enough money to run it — yet they are not taking the trillion dollars they are taking from Medicaid and putting back in the federal budget. Instead, they are giving it to millionaires.
Now they have a president who wants a win, no matter what, and will sign this bill. This is just the start of the slippery slope. Next, I believe, Ryan will have the insurance companies running Medicare and Wall Street running Social Security.
Ryan’s goal has always been to end Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid: Now his goal is weeks away. Do people really want this?
Why are so many on the right afraid of helping all Americans to get health care? Simple answer is money! Republicans like to make money plain and simple. From small business to big business it’s all about money and not what’s right for most people.
Some things should not be about profit. Peoples health is not a political game of the right against the left! It’s a moral given!
The ACA or what the republicans named it Obamacare is a start for Americans toward better health care. Now it’s time to fix it not break it! So many people in Canada, England and other countries like what they have for health care. We should be looking to other countries to see which one has the best for there citizens! We don’t need to start from scratch when there are so many examples around the world!
With Republicans it seems tax breaks for businesses is always there campaign motto. Why is this?
Republicans don’t call giving private companies incentives wrong. Yet if we give a tax break incentive to a poor person to buy health insurance they scream holy hell.
In Florida our governor Rick Scott gave incentives to the Wawa chain (Gas and Convenience Stores) to get them to move into our state. I have to agree with House Speaker Richard Corcoran who has expressed his opposition to Scotts plan of providing money as incentives to lure companies to our state.
Corcoran also points out that Wawa is in competition with other chains in our state like Race Trac and this gives Wawa an edge. Why should Race Trac, 7-11, and others not get the same deal? They have been in our state for some time now and have more locations. It just doesn’t seem fair.
Our governor may want to call it incentives but it’s welfare to private business. It’s no different giving business a money break then giving a money break to a poor or lower wage worker! The big difference is the person maybe can eat better or get health insurance or maybe both.
Now that Trump is filling his cabinet jobs in Washington DC with all the rich corporate people we most likely will see a lot more corporate welfare and less welfare for low and middle income Americans.
What a shame this would be for America
As for Governor Rick Scott I have to wonder how he sleeps at night knowing people of his state are hurting.
