Freedom Caucus Stands Up   Leave a comment

Image result for image of the freedom caucusMark Meadows, the head of the House Freedom Caucus, balked at passing an ACA-like sub rosa bill because they don’t have any proof that the American Health Care Act will fix the death spiral caused by the ACA’s poorly thought provisions.

Good for them and good for us. We shouldn’t be in such a hurry to replace Obamacare that we make all new, but equally grave mistakes, not to mention keeping the very provisions that are causing the ACA to fail – the pre-existing conditions mandate and the community ratings. Alaska is down to one insurer in the individual market and two in the group market. The problem is less severe in some states, but it will only get worse.

Unfortunately, the AHCA, as currently proposed, is not the answer to what ails Obamacare, so it is good that the Freedom Caucus stopped passage of this bill.
