Repubs don't have a clue

So happened to catch McCain on Greta yesterday and then a Republican Congressman from Cali on CNBC this morning. Neither of them had a fricking clue...

"We need to pass our proposals to keep your insurance if you like it"

When countered with the contention that its a little too late for that. Insurance companies have already put into place the new policies and there is NO WAY to rollback to old plans within 1 month and you can't force them to, neither of them had a counter.

These people are fricking morons. The only thing they should be pitching is repeal and replace for 2015.

Well you really can't call 1 party dumb and not the other. The Dems getting all huffy and puffy about people being dropped and the ObamaCare website being a nightmare were told this was gonna happen and they completely ignored it.

Now they are bitching.....well they got what they deserved and so did those that voted for Obama. I hope their insurance is screwed up for the rest of their life!

Do they not understand it's not that simple? Contracts with providers have already been severed for the canceled policies and replaced with new contracts for the new policies. It would take months to even get the original contracts back in place. To attempt to pass a proposal that says you can keep your canceled insurance is nothing more than a "we tried to do something" feel good measure, in my opinion.

I've never had faith in the repubs to use this as fodder.

Nobody in D.C. is working for the people. We're living in tyranny.

Thats exactly what the frick it is... It is purely political and doesn't do a fricking thing to fix the actual problem.

The only thing they should be proposing is repeal and replace that goes into effect in 2015. They need to be honest and say "theres nothing we can do for 2014, but we can make changes and hopefully stem the tide in 2015"

Yeah, I watched it. They were terrible. However, earlier she that nutjob Trey Gowdy on and he was right on point like always. BTW, I like Gowdy, but he is crazy.

You mean they'd rather help people in the short-term rather than let them suffer for political gain down the road?

What a bunch of a-holes

Please explain how "If you like your plan, you can keep it" does ANYTHING to help people?

I'm not talking about in theory, rainbows and unicorns, world... I'm talking about real world, logical sense.

There's your problem. Your terminology of republican is very loose.

The US electorate voted for Obamacare several times: they voted for Obama twice, AND many voted to re-elect their Congress and Senate reps after those reps voted for Obamacare.

I'd have to say that the US electorate has gone on record in favor of Obamacare -- with their votes.

They are running for re-election you aren't. I agree you can put a simple fix on this piece of shite the Democrats own. But if yo are going to control Congress you need to win elections.

Trying to fix the problem the voters face is a better message then we want it to crash and burn and frick everyone. You can reverse this shite without control of Congress.

You IMHO don't have a clue.

Thing is, the Republicans offered this bill well before the cancellations but got nowhere in the senate.

Call the GOP dumb all you want, a lot of the time its well deserved, but they were the party who figured this out and tried to do something about it.

It is impossible to roll back the plans that have been cancelled, period. It cannot happen.

Yea, actually I consider myself to be a good guy. I think I'm fairly smart too, but please explain how it makes me "unclassy" by saying people get what they deserve? How is it any different saying it about a guy getting the death penalty for murdering someone?

Anyways, there is NO chance the Dems didn't know this was gonna happen. They knew, Obama knew, the WHOLE administration knew. Now their trying to save face which is a JOKE. Can any politician ever own up??

But yea, I'll say it again...the people got what they deserved! It's their own fault!
