repealacaAttention fellow citizens: Both the President and the Republican-controlled Congress have been lying to us about health care.

President Trump, shortly before his inauguration, said that he had a health-care plan “very much formulated down to the final strokes”

So where it it? Apparently it doesn’t exist. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, has told Congress that they, not the White House, will have to take the lead on coming up with something to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) said, “We’re really looking at a whole range of options,” and Rep. Patrick J. Tiberi (R-Ohio), chairman of the Ways and Means subcommittee on health, said, “We are working together — this is not top-down; this is bottom-up.”

This is bottom-up. Hmm, sounds like they are starting pretty much from scratch.

In other words, contrary to what they have been telling us, neither the President nor Congress has anything to replace the Affordable Care Act with.

Both the President and the Republican-controlled Congress have been lying to us all along.

Maybe nobody will notice.

By the way: Unless you are getting your health insurance through your employer, you should look into what coverage you do have. The odds are you will lose it as soon as the Affordable Care Act is repealed, and there will be nothing to replace it with.
