What is it?

Prohibits funding any and all components of the Affordable Health Act, also known as Obamacare. Disallows entitlements under Obamacare. Rescinds unobligated balances under Obamacare. The Affordable Health Act requires that most individuals obtain health insurance or pay a penalty tax; requires employers with 50 or more full time employees to provide approved health care coverage or pay a penalty tax; establishes insurance exchanges through which individuals and families will receive taxpayer-funded premium subsidies; expands Medicaid; cuts Medicare, and imposes additional taxes on health insurance plans, medical devices, businesses, families, and individuals. 

Impact

If enacted, the bill would repeal all components of Obamacare. Such legislation would theoretically set in motion a series of events that would return health insurance to a state pre-Obamacare. Such a transition would affect health coverage for millions of Americans.

Cost

A CBO cost estimate is not available.

AKA

Defund Obamacare Act of 2013

Official Title

To prohibit the funding of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

    Frankly, I find it disappointing more then half the people believe you can just "pull the plug" on the affordable care act. While I don't agree with the reasoning obamacare should be replaced I understand why people could possibly think that way. That still doesn't mean you can just take it away like that. 11.3 MILLION Americans are on obamacare and to take it our from under them is beneath even your everyday republican, and that's saying a lot. And now people are listening to trump because obviously his logic would make sense. Only one of the richest people in the world would understand how people who can't even afford there healthcare feels.

    Access to healthcare for all people is essential for any civilized society-especially a country that considers itself a democracy.

    We need the subsidies. Before Obamacare, I was paying over $1000 per month for health insurance. I was about to be homeless with those co-pays, plus a medical emergency. It makes no sense to revoke a plan that has a lot of parts that are working well without a real alternative healthcare plan in place.

    I find it appalling that Republicans will play with people's lives. It's time they listened to the people that are affected by repealing the ACA. Thank you for listening.

    Let competitive markets that actually deal with healthcare handle this. The government is NOT what should be involved in the healthcare industry. Look at the premiums and deductibles. People can NOT afford this. Ramming it down our throats wasn't very good either.

    It's dangerous to do a repeal and delay and to defund planned parenthood along with it. They don't have an alternative plan. They need to slow down and wait until they have a good plan of their own or just fix and amend parts of Obamacare without defunding planned parenthood. They're about to leave millions without health insurance and options. That's not right.
