Trump is Ready To CAN Health-Care Benefits for Lawmakers

 

This is actually some good news regarding the whole healthcare debacle, folks!
 
If you have been anywhere online this past week, you already know that one of the biggest talked-about issues is the Healthcare issue. Specifically, what is being discussed everywhere from Facebook debate groups to major news articles is whether members of Congress should be forced to receive the same healthcare as the people they represent.
 
Many Americans agree that they should.
 
It is not fair for elected representatives to have access to superior healthcare options than their constituents. If they do, where is the incentive to improve on the disaster better known as Obamacare?
 
When someone like Senator John McCain doesn’t have to be limited to the healthcare options we do, even a brain tumor is not enough of a wake-up call or a trigger for a sense of urgency to repeal and replace this catastrophe that is bleeding the pockets of hardworking Americans, as well as our economy in general.
Well, again, thank God that the American people woke up and elected President Trump. President Trump hears and sees the people’s pain, and, reportedly, is bringing the heat to the members of Congress.
The Wall Street Journal reports:

MR. TRUMP’S STATEMENT CAME LESS THAN TWO DAYS AFTER THE COLLAPSE IN THE SENATE OF REPUBLICANS’ EFFORT TO OVERTURN THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.

FOR MONTHS, MR. TRUMP HAS THREATENED TO STOP REIMBURSEMENTS TO INSURANCE COMPANIES—A PART OF THE ACA—BUT HIS ADMINISTRATION HAS ALWAYS PAID THEM IN THE END, INCLUDING AMID SIGNIFICANT UNCERTAINTY IN JUNE AND AT A CRUCIAL MOMENT IN GOP NEGOTIATIONS JUST A WEEK AGO IN JULY.

THE NEXT SET OF PAYMENTS, WHICH TOTAL MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR INSURERS THAT HAVE LOWERED DEDUCTIBLES AND OTHER OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS FOR THE POOREST ENROLLEES IN COVERAGE UNDER THE LAW ALSO KNOWN AS OBAMACARE, IS DUE IN THREE WEEKS.

MR. TRUMP’S SATURDAY TWEET CAME ON THE HEELS OF SEVERAL OTHERS EXPRESSING HIS DISAPPOINTMENT THAT GOP SENATORS HAD SO FAR FAILED TO COME TOGETHER AROUND A SINGLE PIECE OF LEGISLATION THAT WOULD FULFILL A SHARED CAMPAIGN PLEDGE OF REPEALING THE ACA AND ENACTING THEIR OWN SET OF PROPOSALS IN ITS PLACE.

What is really insane is the way Congress has been getting away with this to begin with. This is a perfect example of another shady deal from the Obama administration. Here’s how the trickery works now: (VIDEO BELOW)

The Independent Journal Review writes:

IN THE FEHBP, UNDER SECTION 8901(6) OF TITLE V, THE HEALTH PLANS MUST BE “GROUP” PLANS. SO, NO PROBLEM: OPM CERTIFIED THE DC SHOP EXCHANGE, RESERVED FOR FIRMS WITH FEWER THAN FIFTY EMPLOYEES, AS THE HEALTH INSURANCE EXCHANGE FOR CONGRESS.

ALL CONGRESS HAD TO DO WAS TO SOMEHOW TURN ITSELF INTO A SMALL BUSINESS, WITH FEWER THAN FIFTY EMPLOYEES. AND, INCREDIBLY, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT UNNAMED CONGRESSIONAL BUREAUCRATS DID: THEY SUBMITTED PAPERWORK IDENTIFYING EACH CHAMBER OF CONGRESS AS A SMALL BUSINESS, EMPLOYING FORTY-FIVE PEOPLE APIECE.

Thank goodness there is a real leader in the United States after eight long and dreadful years of Obama!

Let’s hope this issue progresses and reaches a tipping point where something will actually get done for the American people!

Do you think this will finally spur Congress into action on healthcare?

Share if you agree with our President.
