END OF OBAMACARE - U.S. Congress Vote Takes Big Step to Obamacare Repeal
The US House of Representatives has taken the first step toward demolishing President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, known as Obamacare.
Republicans passed a budget measure to introduce a bill - which Democrats cannot block - to roll back the law.
But members of both parties in Congress are concerned about a lack of replacement for Obamacare.
The political showdown raises a big question mark over medical coverage for more than 20 million Americans.
The measure passed in the House nearly on a party-line vote, 227-198, delivering a blow to President Obama's legacy a week before he leaves office.
It instructs four committees on Capitol Hill to draft repeal legislation by 27 January.
The Senate passed the resolution by 51-48 on Thursday.

"By taking the first step toward repealing Obamacare, we are closer to giving Americans relief from the problems this law has caused," House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement following the vote.
"This resolution gives us the tools we need for a step-by-step approach to fix these problems and put Americans back in control of their health care."
Obamacare has provided healthcare subsidies and medical coverage for millions who are not covered through work.
It has banned insurers from refusing coverage to people who are already ill, and curbed medical charges to the sick and elderly.
But the law has been rocked by rising premiums, large fees and national insurers exiting the marketplaces.
Egged on by Donald Trump, Republicans have vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act but conservatives have not yet agreed on a new plan. President-elect Donald J. Trump demanded on Tuesday that Congress immediately repeal the Affordable Care Act and pass another health law quickly. His remarks put Republicans in the nearly impossible position of having only weeks to replace a health law that took nearly two years to pass. “We have to get to business,” Mr. Trump told The New York Times in a telephone interview. “Obamacare has been a catastrophic event.” U.S. USA America "united States" Law Congress Republican Promise Obamacare Insurance "Health Insurance" poverty Poor Rich Wealth Lies Truth Plan "Health Insurance Plan" "American Dream" States Speech Meeting Experiment Lawyer health healthy hospital "travel insurance" doctor emergency savings salary family "health savings account" budget debt 2017 2018 future elite agenda news media entertainment benefit account sick sickness "private healthcare" surgery "elite nwo agenda" cancer charity
Mr. Trump appeared to be unclear both about the timing of already scheduled votes in Congress and about the difficulty of his demand — a repeal vote “probably some time next week” and a replacement “very quickly or simultaneously, very shortly thereafter.” As their first major act of the new Congress, Republicans rushed approval of a budget resolution this week that sets up a framework for repealing Obamacare, but what exactly to replace it with is still a puzzle Republicans are piecing together.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, a college freshman who won't shut up about how you really should read more Ayn Rand books, is in a bit of a pickle right now. On the one hand, he and his fellow Republicans control the House, the Senate, and the White House, setting the stage for the Affordable Care Act repeal that they've promised to the point of fetishization for the last six-plus years. On the other hand, after six-plus years, they still have no idea what the hell they're going to do instead! (Hope you got all your serious illness and major injuries out of the way in 2016, friend.) As Republicans try to repeal the Affordable Care Act, they should be reminded every day that 36,000

With the fate of the Affordable Care Act hanging in the balance, the rhetorical warfare is only going to get worse. Earlier this week, we looked at an exaggerated GOP claim about Obamacare premiums.

The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
