The turncoats republicans in congress have failed the American people once again on healthcare, and this time, the stakes could be higher than ever.
President Trump was overwhelmingly elected by the American people at the end of the long and grueling 2016 election based on the businessman-turned-candiate’s promises to protect our nation from terrorism, enforce our nation’s immigration laws, and repeal the disastrous Obamacare legislation that has been bankrupting the middle class. Thanks to the blind “resistance” of the liberals, these goals have yet to be achieved, nearly 9 months into the President’s first term.
Worse yet, it seems that several conservative lawmakers have given in to pressure from the left in order to stymy the President in their own way, as evidenced by the complete and utter failure of congress to make good on their promise to remove Obamacare. The healthcare system, named for the disastrous former President that installed it, has been failing for years, creating all-out strife for the Americans who have been forced to utilize it.
New data suggests that things will only get worse for those stuck with Obamacare, as over 1,300 counties within the U.S. will be relegated to a single insurance provider by the year 2018 due to the failure of the Affordable Care Act.
“According to recent data released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), in 2018, 1,332 counties in the United States will have only one health insurer operating on the Obamacare exchanges and 49 will have none.
“The data comes from the Health Insurance Exchanges Issuer County Map, which shows projected issuer participation on the Health Insurance Exchanges in 2018 based on the issuer public announcements made prior to late July of 2017.
“‘The map currently shows that nationwide 49 counties are projected to have no issuers, meaning that Americans in these counties could be without coverage on the Exchanges in 2018,’ a press release for the agency states. ‘It’s also projected that 1,332 counties—over 40 percent of counties nationwide—could only have one issuer in 2018.'”
This unacceptable reality has yet to be addressed by a do-nothing congress infected with anti-Trump “republicans”.
Much of the “resistance” to the President that is stemming from the right comes to us exclusively in establishment circles. Congressional leaders such as Mitch McConnell, and veteran Senators such as John McCain, have been far from concerned conservatives in the era of Trump, working to bolster their own political careers instead of bowing to the will of the American people who elected The Donald to shake up the Washington machine.
Obamacare’s failure could be the spark that leads to a massive turnover in congress in 2018, with Americans wholeheartedly willing to reject the D.C. elite in favor of bold, unconventional candidates not beholden to special interests, such as the health insurance lobby that has relished in Obamacare’s mandated coverage.
