Issues: Health Care

Either Obamacare is good enough that it should apply to all, or it is so bad that it should apply to none. It is time for the sweetheart deals and backroom exemptions to end. It is our duty to fund the government while using every legislative tool available to delay, defund, and, ultimately, repeal and replace the ACA.

Republicans offer version of health-care reform

Issues: Health Care

This common-sense alternative to the ACA, introduced by Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. R-Tenn., sets out to do what the president's health-care law fails to accomplish: make American medical care -- already the most sought-after in the world -- more affordable and more accessible to the most vulnerable among us in a way that does not damage our economy or disrupt anyone's existing coverage.

Republican Alternative to Obamacare Relies on Repeal

Issues: Health Care

Republican Study Committee Chairman Steve Scalise, R-La., called the bill a 180-degree turn from Obamacare. It would offer standardized tax deductions across income levels, while the ACA provides tax credits on a sliding scale, depending on age and income. Under the GOP plan, everyone would be given the same income- or payroll-tax deduction: $7,500 for individuals and $20,000 for families. For low-income taxpayers, the deduction would be up to the amount of their income taxes or payroll taxes owed.
