Rep Thomas Massie, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, just dropped more bad news about obamacare lite/ RyanCare. The powers that be, aka swamp monsters, have cut a provision that would prevent illegal aliens from getting coverage! Yea you heard and read it right, the GOPe tweaked their plan that would allow illegals to get healthcare tax credits. It sounds crazy but read it for yourself....
"The provision would have allowed the Treasury Department to access data at the Department of Homeland Security to verify that healthcare tax credits went only to U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents, not to illegal immigrants.
In a largely procedural move, it was dropped from the bill after the Senate Parliamentarian determined that the Senate Finance Committee, which handles tax credits under the bill, does not have purview over the Department of Homeland Security.
Republican Representative Lou Barletta issued a statement on Monday evening, after the change was made, saying he could no longer support the bill, citing the obscure provision." -Reuters
To make matters worse Massie pointed out veterans who could go to the VA but choose not to, will not receive healthcare subsidies as everyone else in the individual market!
Glenn Beck's response to Massie's bird bath analogy to the Senate's "Byrd Rule" is right, "I'd like to drown a lot of these birds!"
How can anyone vote for this mess!? And make no mistake about it Paul Ryan is the head.. King Swamp Monster behind all of this nonsense! Careers will be ruined if this law passes, not to mention heavy damage to Trump's presidency!
Anyone... ANYONE in Congress voting in favor of this bill should be primaried (thrown out of office), especially those who have campaigned in the past saying how bad obamacare is and they would do everything possible to repeal it! The American people didn't protest and elect people to go to DC to replace obamacare with another horrible healthcare law.
Let's hope Rep Massie, Sen Paul and others are correct that many republicans will vote against this law that will be as bad if not worse than barackobamacare.
