Bipartisanship NOT Possible On Health Insurance

The idea of a bipartisan solution to ObamaCare's financial meltdown has always been a fantasy. Democrats are the resistance party, by their own admission, remember?

Every single Democrat in Congress — even the faux “moderates” in the Senate, like Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Mark Warner of Virginia — is opposed to virtually every repeal and reform measure Republicans ‎have proposed.

For there to even be bipartisan activity, more than one part would at least be invited into discussion. Dems were blocked continuously from any input whatsoever...even from being in the room. Good ol' Turtleman is now doing so again for tax reform and I expect the same result.

Aufgeblassen, introducing poison pills to reduce the proportion of USA’s population that are assured of medically adequate healthcare would not improve our nation’s economic and social wellbeing.
I’m not opposed to a replacement act that would be superior to the Affordable Care Act, (i.e. ACA) and increase the proportion of USA’s population that’s assured of adequate medical care. What specific proposal do you have in mind?

I’m a proponent of direct federal financial insurance covering annual catastrophic medical expenses of any legal resident in the USA at no cost to the budget of any other government or nongovernment insurance plan.

This proposal is not of significant additional increase to our annual federal budgets. Prior to the ACA, currently, and likely within any likely future USA healthcare policy, a significant portion of catastrophic medical costs otherwise unpaid, are eventually paid or otherwise directly or indirectly become additional expenses to our governments’ and our taxpayers.

You and I discuss this proposal within the thread
Catastrophic medical insurance

Respectfully, Supposn
Thanks from tecoyah

His statement is massive hyperbole. So I stand correct.

It would seem your new favorite word is Hyperbole.....In order to assist in your use of it I will supply the definition.

hy·per·bo·le
hīˈpərbəlē/
noun
noun: hyperbole; plural noun: hyperboles
exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.

His statements we not much exaggerated and were to be taken seriously.

Aufgeblassen, there are some errors within your post. The word “logic” is not spelled H-Y-P-E-R-B-O-L-E and (if you don’t type while standing), you "sit erect" rather than "stand correct".

Your response is too flattering. My logic is not massive or particularly beyond ordinary. Exposure to Donald Trump has lowered our standards and expectations.

Respectfully, Supposn
