Democrats don’t really want to fix Obamacare

 Steve Balich Editors note: Before Obamacare health insurance was not cheap but it worked for most people. Now health care is affordable, increasing in cost, covers men for women’ s  medical conditions and women for men’s conditions. Insurance can’t cross borders keeping competition down. Trial lawyer lobby don’t want caps on suits like existing for workman’s comp. Republicans in the Senate were more concerned with their political ideology than addressing the problem, shame on them!!!!!!!!!  So now we get to watch Obamacare implode while at the same time people suffer. Deductibles are so high with less and less coverage most people aren’t actually using the insurance. So to insure a small percent of the population that did not have healthcare we make the entire country suffer, and now Republicans like John Mc Cain who ran on elimination of Obamacare do nothing.

Senator John McCain thanked his fellow senators for their support after he was diagnosed with cancer, and says he plans to return after treating his illness.

Robert Robb: Democrats don’t want to make the insurance available better. They just want more subsidies to prop up Obamacare as it is.

That John McCain showing grit is no surprise doesn’t make it any less admirable.

McCain’s speech on his return to the Senate, following surgery and a devastating diagnosis of brain cancer, was eloquent and obviously heartfelt.

Moreover, I agree with McCain’s call to return to the normal legislative process. Several months ago, I observed that legislating as a process of discovery, rather than of ratification, might be the only way forward on Obamacare.

However, the claim implicit in McCain’s speech, that a bipartisan approach to reforming Obamacare would result in superior policy, is highly doubtful.

The Democratic mantra is: Don’t repeal Obamacare; fix it.

But Democrats don’t really want to fix Obamacare. They just want to prop it up with more subsidies.
