house Bill H.R. 1425

Expanding Obamacare Tax Credits, and Encouraging States to Expand Medicaid While Punishing Those That Don’t

Argument in favor

This bill would expand the availability & value of Obamacare’s premium tax credits and increase marketing for the exchanges to encourage people to enroll. It would also encourage more states to expand Medicaid and give Medicare the power to negotiate drug prices.

Support the people. Put at least as much funding to help our populace with their medical needs as we do to subsidize corporate farms, financial institutions and our multi-national corporations. Trickle down economics does not and never has worked; Our country’s increasing wealth gap proves this. Trickle down economics only results in the people at the bottom being trickled upon by elites who need them to maintain their personal cash flows. … … … Oh yeah, be very wary regarding promises made by the trump. The trump had made a comment that he has a solution to assure pre-existing coverage to be part of most health insurance policies - he would allow them to charge newly insured members totally different rates if they needed pre-existing condition coverage - thus defeating the whole concept of pre-existing coverage by essentially making insurance unaffordable to those who have critical pre-exiting conditions when they enroll. Just another friggin game to juggle the intent of ‘pre-existing’ condition coverage into a ‘pay lots more’ to get your pre-existing condition coverage.

I support this. I want my representatives to vote to strengthen, expand, and improve the ACA, not dismantle it.

Argument opposed

This partisan bill expands Obamacare’s tax credits in a fiscally irresponsible way and would try to use the threat of federal funding cuts to coerce states into expanding Medicaid. Even worse, it is a backdoor attempt end the longstanding ban on the use of federal funding for abortions.

Threatening the states with punishment cuts is blackmail and doing it is illegal. That’s true whether it’s forcing expanding Medicaid or “defunding” Sanctuary Cities. Even if I agree with the gist of the bill, I cannot agree to blackmailing the States to force compliance without a vote. It’s the principle of the thing.

NO AND HECK NO TO EXPANDING OBAMACARE!! It caused healthcare costs to go up, insurance premiums and deductibles to go and for benefits to become subpar causing individuals to refrain from getting some care unless it is emergent. If that wasn’t bad enough those who are on Obamacare and mandated to have insurance saw their premiums go up also. Does the financial oppression hurt yet? Do you still believe you’re going to get something that somebody else pays for?? You, are then believing the greatest of lies!!

    Ignore the republicans. They are idiots. They have had 10 years to come up with a better plan & they have zilch. They have done NOTHING BUT BE OBSTRUCTIONISTS. THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO ACTUALLY BE LEGISLATORS. And worse. When they do legislate there is nothing but rhetoric in the bills - they TALK THE TALK BUT NEVER WALK THE WALK.

    All industries work better at scale, but there is almost no downside to scaling up health care. The more people in the insurance pool, the less expensive it is for everyone. There is zero downside to this bill. Unless you have moral objections to poor people receiving life saving care at an affordable price.

    Update: Yes, I support this bill, but believe we need to Implement Medicare For All! Save lives, because all citizens are covered. Bring down costs, as the government has the ability to negotiate pharmaceutical & healthcare prices. Have better outcomes, as they do in other countries. Right now Gilead, a company that had US backing, our tax dollars, to come up with Remdesivir, a life-saving COVID-19 treatment, is going to change” $390 per vial to governments “of developed countries” around the world, and the price for U.S. private insurance companies will stand at $520 per vial.... anticipated pricing ...is $3,120 for a typical U.S. patient with commercial insurance.” Our system is evil. Implement Medicare For All and put these greedy ass pharmaceutical companies in their place!

    Being able to expand our health system is the correct thing to do. It is insane the Trump administration would be doing something so horrifying as trying to undermine the systems health care during a global pandemic. As the country turns 244 years old and celebrates its new Independence Day we should think about what direction the country should head in. We should not let it go in the wrong direction and keeping Americans alive and healthy and it’s citizens and residents is the right thing to do and expanding benefits seems correct. The next best thing would be Medicare for all in the future to improve the system.

    Yes I think we should help those who are less fortunate among us to include the millions of Americans without health insurance during a pandemic. If we don’t spend our money helping each other then what’s the point?

    Healthcare is a human right. I question those of you opposing - you must be healthy, or working and have health insurance through our company, or you must have enough money saved to pay out of pocket $800.00 per month for ONE person. (that is what I was paying 6 years ago when contracting) Once again your selfish individualism shows. Please realize your continuing good health depends on the heath of your neighbors. Open your mind, you are living an illusion, the ass clown lies - he will not save the nation. All of use CARING for EACH OTHER will!

    To not provide healthcare in the middle of a pandemic - that is what is both irresponsible and immoral. Pass this bill.

    We don't have to keep Obamacare, the ACA forever. I really, honestly would support a bill from the Republicans and even if this "president" if they had one that provided affordable, equitable, comprehensive healthcare for all Americans. I don't care who it's from: all Americans deserve healthcare, because being able to care for yourself is a human right. Too many people are living in sickness and poverty because of the excessive costs of healthcare in America. Until someone comes up with a better plan/bill, let's improve what we already have and keep it strong so people can stay healthy, especially in this time of COVID-19 and extremely high unemployment. Until all Americans can get the care they need without going poor, we will never be a great country.

    Right now, more than ever, the ACA is needed. With people loosing their jobs due to Corona and people getting sick, Obamacare needs to be readily accessible to people who may have never thought they'd need it.
