Where and what has become of the Republican health care plan(s)?

Since 2010, not one Republican has stepped up to the American plate and produced even one bill out of committee concerning the rising costs of health care and prescription medication.

So what gives with the Republicans and the people who voted them into office? Where is your plan?

You’ve decimated the ACA plan, which was a good foundation for things to come had you decided to work with Obama and the Democrats. Now what?

You have Donald Trump in office with a runamuck mouth, who campaigned on promised health care reform. You have a Republican Senate — silence from them on health care. And you had a House for eight years with nothing done.

Please don’t tell me the Democrats have done nothing since taking the House. They have — to the tune of more than 440 passed bills that a Republican refuses to be let out of committee, let alone discussed.

So I ask again, Republicans, when are you going to do something?

More lies from Republicans. The deductibles for Obama Care are really pretty reasonable and the premiums are low and have actually fallen the last three years like President Obama said they would. My daughter actually pays zero premium and got a 250 rebate on her Obama care insurance just a few weeks ago, thank you President Obama. Obama care provided good ins. for 30 million people. Trump tried to destroy Obama care and failed thanks to John McCain before he died bless his soul Crooked Trump would have liked to have Obama Care destroyed which would have cut 30 million from having Ins. and Bozo Trump never even had a plan to replace it!

"Since 2010, not one Republican has stepped up to the American plate and produced even one bill out of committee concerning the rising costs of health care and prescription medication."

WRONG.

American Health Care Act of 2017, HR 1628 was passed by the House. This was GOP sponsored. The bill addressed drug coverage, pre-existing conditions, and the rising cost of care.

The whole premise of your propaganda piece is gone. POOF brah, stay woke.

Prior to 2010, most of America had good insurance. Now everyone has high deductible, high premium, low coverage plans. You ask where the Republican plan is? It was replaced by the democrat plan, another crapfest courtesy of the democrat party.
