CNN reports, “The Republican zombie repeal and replace effort just died. Again.

Maine Sen. Susan Collins’ announcement that she will not vote for her party’s last-ditch attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare effectively dooms Republican hopes of abolishing a law they spent eight years campaigning against.

No, No RyNoCare

As reported by Breitbart, “Chaos Inside GOP House Conference Forces Speaker Ryan to Cancel Thursday’s RyanCare Vote

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R.-WI) cancelled the anticipated vote on the American Health Care Act—RyanCare—the latest sign that the bill is in a death spiral.

Allegory for ObamaCare

CNN reports that “Bill Clinton calls Obamacare ‘the craziest thing in the world,’ …“.  The second craziest thing in the world is this impossible water stream that we’re using allegorically to demonstrate exactly how crazy the foundational principles of ObamaCare are.

Bill Clinton criticized President Barack Obama’s signature policy reform Monday

while on the stump for his wife, calling Obamacare “the craziest thing in the world.”

Speaking at a Democratic rally in Flint, Michigan, the former president ripped into the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for flooding the health care insurance market and causing premiums to rise for middle-class Americans who do not qualify for subsidies.
“So you’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It’s the craziest thing in the world,” Clinton said.

ACA – It’s Almost Time to Not Sign Up Again

The Washington Post report about the dire circumstances facing ObamaCares , simply recaps a fact that you knew 4 years ago would be inevitable, “Health-care exchange sign-ups fall far short of forecasts“.

Enrollment in the insurance exchanges for President Obama’s signature health-care law is at less than half the initial forecast, pushing several major insurance Obamacare_Works_Only_If_You_Dontcompanies to stop offering health plans in certain markets because of significant financial losses.

As a result, the administration’s promise of a menu of health-plan choices has been replaced by a grim, though preliminary, forecast: Next year, more than 1 in 4 counties are at risk of having a single insurer on its exchange, said Cynthia Cox, who studies health reform for the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Debate over how perilous the predicament is for the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare, is nearly as partisan as the divide over the law itself. But at the root of the problem is this: The success of the law depends fundamentally on the exchanges being profitable for insurers — and that requires more people to sign up.

Pajama Boy Is Back

He’s back. But I’m not quite sure what this new PSA of his is supposed to mean.  Is he saying that owning a gun cures cervical cancer?  If so, then that would make your local Gun Dealer like your Physician??  Does the Rx need to be “Name Brand” such as Glock, or Smith and Wesson or Sig?  Or would a generic like Bersa or Charter Arms serve as well.  Tell us PJ Boy.  Lecture us in your Lamar Alexander plaid “onesie”.
