Last Call For Obamacare

Things are going to move quickly in the new year with our new Republican masters.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell signaled the Senate would move swiftly to repeal Obamacare now that the GOP Congress will have a Republican president next year.

"It's pretty high on our agenda as you know," the Kentucky Republican said on Wednesday. "I would be shocked if we didn't move forward and keep our commitment to the American people."

McConnell would not explicitly commit to using budget reconciliation to repeal the healthcare law, though it's the likely path for Republicans to repeal the law, as they have only a narrow Senate majority next year.

Hope nobody had pre-existing conditions or has expanded Medicaid coverage, because that's going away pretty soon.   Gonna be fun to see a whole lot of people who voted for Trump lose their health insurance and please, please notice that McConnel didn't mention any plans of "replacement".  That's not going to happen with this administration.

Well I take it back, tens of millions will lose health coverage and have it replaced by a bottle of Aleve and a box of bandages, medical bankruptcy, and foregoing care.

Stay tuned, middle America.  You voted for it.
