"Delay, de-fund, repeal, replace. That is exactly what we want to do, because this law has become so amazingly unpopular with the American people," said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.

Haha - replace! Fun to see that word come back.

which American people is she talking to?

What does this make now?  41 attempts to fark with Obamacare?   How is all that jobs legislation coming?

And, who really thinks this will make it past the Senate or the President?

So unpopular with Americans that they re-elected the guy who pushed for it and they continue to vote for senators that will block any attempt to repeal it...

"This bill would protect American taxpayers from the staggering amount of fraud and abuse in Obamacare exchanges," said Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn. the main sponsor of the bill.

Uhhh, are the exchanges even operating yet?

Are they trolling themselves here? I'm so confused.

No, they don't open until October, I think.

I think is see your mistake -- you're attempting to use logic to comprehend the Republican "thought process".

But at the same time, unlikely to be an issue that would bring people to the polls to defend it. If the GOP makes a clean sweep of Congress plus the White House (not as farfetched as some think) the ACA will be gone.

Well geez... Just when I thought that house republicans were counter productive obstructionists they go and reaffirm my beliefs. It must really chap their ass that they have zero leverage and no ability to set any other policy.

Oooh! Yahoo News; the comments ought to be excellent.

Don 2 hours ago I work on total commissions and my income can very by $20k to $30k each year. I never know what my household income will be. My employer just told us we have to give them that number even though it is none of their business what our household income is. Forget privacy and FREEDOM...those days are gone!

Don't you just love a derper who expects people to believe that his employer doesn't know how much his paying his employee?

To be fair, insurance companies consider ANY claim to be fraud and/or abuse.

Everyone who has health insurance is grist for the mill that churns out shareholder profits.

well the bill is amazingly unpopular because folks like her won't shut up about how bad it is, and most of the visible benefits of it don't take effect till next year.   Give them clever points however for going after JUST the subsidies while not putting any holds on the individual mandate itself.   THAT would help make the law REALLY unpopular as people were forced to buy insurance but not given the extra money designed to help them PAY for it.

I'm just really surprised at how blatant it is this time.

I guess they needed some red meat to throe to their base, so they can say "See, we tried, but those mean Democrats in the Senate stopped us!  Donate now to help put Republicans back in control of the Senate."

I know I posted this before, but they truly have come up with some possible replacement bills. They just all suck harder than an ugly Vegas prostitute and have never been debated in a committee, let alone brought to the floor of either chamber of Congress.

I thought he was talking about his boss, because as far as I can tell, we've had to tell the federal government how much income we make since the William Taft was President; income taxing fatcat RINO that he was.

Republicans are master debaters.

in one breath they proclaim Americans don't want ACA then go on to claim that those same Americans will commit fraud & lie to reap the benefits of affordable premiums so they'd like a safety net to save Americans from themselves.

FARK the GOP
/ again, i can't stress this enough, i will never again in my voting lifetime vote (R).
//unless i hear someone saying something that makes sense, i would consider sensibility.

Republicans say there aren't enough safeguards to prevent fraud. They say federal regulations issued over the summer would enable people to get subsidies without adequately verifying their income. The bill would delay the subsidies until the inspector general for the Department of Health and Human Services certifies that they will only go to people who are eligible.

"We need to review all these applications in detail so that we can make sure they are complying with Federal regulations" said the advocate for smaller government when it was convenient.

Even then, I still wouldn't trust them to follow through instead of taking a hard right turn once elected.

DoleCare RomneyCare ObamaCare is going to be a thorn in their side for years. They decided to get their base worked up about it instead of, you know, things that actually matter... now there's no other direction they can take.

Plus... they still haven't gotten over Roe v Wade. They aren't known for acknowledging their defeats.

Hey Dipshiat Don - did you forget about the fact that if you want apply for assistance, you have to prove you need it? If you don't want to provide income info to the exchanges, then don't apply for their assistance.

Jesus. Republicans are scared to DEATH over Obamacare.

Literally.

They would rather people die than see it implemented and succeed.

Government that benefits the people is the enemy of those who say government is the problem.

They'd do just about anything to kill and/or cripple any form of good government.

Well, its a non issue...wont about half the states (the red ones) reject this healthcare anyway?

What a crock of shiat, lets throw a fit and keep people poor and sick...oh good jerb.

No it won't. Well, yes, the ACA will be gone. But it'll be replaced by either single-payer or the American Freedom and Liberty Free Market Reagan Health Care Act... which will be virtually identical to the ACA.

Nah. They'll say they're going to replace it, but they won't actually do anything.

Other possibility: repeal of everything but the individual mandate.

Their BASE is scared of it, because the Party told them to be scared of it. To most of the politicians, it's just more red meat to keep the ignorant masses nice and scared, so they pull the lever for Republicans. Just like Roe v. Wade, or THEY'RE GONNA TAKE YOUR GUNS.

No, the GOP will repeal Obamacare and replace it with outlawing getting health insurance as an employment benefit - thereby separating Job Creators from the pain of having to provide for their employee's health costs - which is something all Real Americans want to do for themselves.
