American Health Care Association (AHCA): Long term care providers across the country are disappointed that cuts to Medicaid are included in the Obamacare repeal and replace bill released yesterday. The current Medicaid system underfunds nursing center care by $22.46 per day, resulting in a shortfall of nearly $7 billion annually.

The American Hospital Association is opposing the GOP’s last-ditch ObamaCare repeal bill, saying the legislation puts the health coverage of 10 million people at risk. The following is a list of efforts to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly called the “Affordable Care Act (ACA)” or “Obamacare”), which had been enacted by the 111th United States Congress on March 23, 2010. Obamacare repeal has been attempted many times during the presidencies of both Barack Obama and Donald Trump. Between 2011 and 2014, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted to repeal or change the law more than 50 times. After the 2016 election, Republicans felt emboldened by their control of the presidency and both houses of Congres.

  • I think mccain knew obama would be the one who became president, but he was ok with that because he knows a fellow hero when he sees one.

  • It’s sad that people think free healthcare is such a good thing. While yes, it is in theory, it’s not in reality. Look at Canada for a good example, look into what you are wishing for.

  • If you are not sure who you want to vote for when you get to the polls, consider the fact that the current President thinks John McCain was and is a loser. I was raised by democrats. But even my dad who is a liberal, gave me a book about John McCain when I was 16. He told me “son I agree with very little that this man believes, but I honor every bit of what he stands for. Read this book and we can talk about why and how you can admire a man, who you so vehemently disagree with politically.” That lesson seems more valuable than ever today.

  • Just like sleepy Joe, crooked Hillary, and the likes, McCain didn’t do anything or accomplish anything for America even though having been a Senator for a million years. McCain died and was buried with him his jealousy of Trump’s presidency position that McCain did not get. So the only thing McCain can get even with Trump is to thumbs down the Obamacare repeal. But it doesn’t matter, Trump still wins, and McCain is gone.

  • It makes sense that John McCain, who was a longtime friend of late Sen Kennedy, would do the exact same action, as they fight cancerensure Americans can have health coverage.

  • The best moment of the Trump presidency so far. Actually, I take that last part back. Nothing from now until the end of his presidency can top this. Finally, it fells like us Democrats scored a major victory! Not just for us, but for all 16,000,000 of those people who would have been kicked off their insurance. The Republican plan failed, and I’m sorry if I’m sounding selfish, but I’ve been waiting for something like this ever since we lost the Georgia election last month, so just let me have my moment. Also, McConnell, let me tell you that you are the bane of my Kentucky roots.

  • McCain’s thumbs down saved so many lives. That was one of the most historical moment. John does not care if you are Dems or Republicans. He sticks with his principles, not his party. He is not like Mitch McConnell tracing Trump’s tail all the time. I miss McCain, true American hero.

  • He was a POW in a Vietnamese war camp. This was a walk in the park for him. Rest easy, McCain. I wish you were born ten years later so you could’ve been the nominee in 2016. Fuck Trump.

  • “Hey guys, remember that time that clown you call a boss insulted me and Obama, harassing him and spreading all these conspiracy theories while turning away from all the real shit the circus you call the administration has been doing?”

    “Because I remember”

  • Leftists are the “Pigs” in George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”. 1st they ignite a revolution& say “4 legs are better than 2” When the “Humans” are ousted they said “2 legs are better than 4” since the Piggies learned to stand on 2 feet while telling their lies to the gullible

  • Millions of Americans who are protected by the pre existing clause, and those who were insured that weren’t before say thank you John McCain.

  • R.I.C.O. Act ���� is not a Mexican you can deport��. R.I.C.O Is coming for you Donald Trump and your entire crime syndicate “The Trump Administration☠️” in 2021.

  • One of the most Patriotic Acts in History,he really showed us all what Country above politics looks like! R.I.P. Great American Hero,John McCain!

  • All you people think it’s great law.The government fines you if you don’t have health care insurance. Do you really want the government in your healthcare. Everything a government runs is ruined. Here’s a few examples Post office,public schools,Nasa,FBI,The UN when does it stop.

  • Big John did what was best for the most people. He has left behind a solid legacy of public service, in and out of uniform. Donald Trump found out the hard way that not everybody works for him. Rest in peace, Senator. May the rest of us pick up where you left off.��������������������

  • John McClain disappointed the middle class and now all the ppl will control their companies like they they want to untill it’s gone.Trump will win the election again and the CEO will wait untill it is gone.

  • He is my hero. I held great respect and admire his courage to do the right thing. Because of his compassion and integrity, many lives were saves.

  • Who is this McCain? He was a former prisoner of war. This McCain’s only heroic act was getting caught by the VietCongs. It doesn’t sound like a big heroic deed to me. Anyone can be taken prisoner when surrendering. You don’t have to be brave. It’s enough to raise your hands and fill your pant.

  • Last true Republican. People forget what Republican and Democrats truly stand for. Now a days all these reps and dems are not even Republicans or Democrats but some retarded extremists

  • What a mad lad. Even though I disagreed with his outlook on things, he was still a good person with integrity, and he probably would’ve been also been a good president had he won in ’08 (and persumably 2012 too). Bless the man’s soul, we need more congresspeople like him.

  • I am glad McCain agreed with democrats this one time and went out like a boss BEFORE Black Lives Matter made me lose all respect for democrats.

  • McCain was one of the last true Republicans. A man to be respected and admired.

    Now unfortunately the Republican party has evolved into a personality cult of Donald Trump! McCain would be ashamed to see what his party has become!

  • Thankful for the awesome senators who voted to not repeal Obamacare!Saving millions of Americans from an uncertain medical future!Trump had the nerve to do nuclear option too.Its obvious Trump knows the clock is ticking before agencies close in and Trump desperately tries to do his donors his promised favors. Who are these donors and why are they traitors wanting to hurt Americans?

  • Hey hey psst…..pass me some of those juju fruits and popcorn��’Cause this Thriller Thriller Night we’re fighting for our lives because it Killer�� Thriller ��《doo-ta-doo, CLAP��》 ��《doo-ta-doo, CLAP��》!!!!!

  • Why not send insurance bill with higher cost to Nancy Pelosi and demand she pay it since
    she had to pass it before she knew what was in it at our expense? And why not demand
    congress creatures be forced to eat from the same pot they cook up for us?
