Bob the only acceptable replacement for Obama care is pure capitalism. I hear. I'm the promising to get to this piece from my Jeff Duncan. That that was posted today in an email from the daily signal. This comes out from The Heritage Foundation. Congressman Duncan writing. President Ronald Reagan once said we should carry a banner of no pale pastels. But one of bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on the issues. The twenty HE and mid term elections were historic. Running opposite of president Barack Obama's agenda primarily. Be patient protection and Affordable Care Act otherwise known as obamacare. The Republican efforts resulted in 63. Seats changing hands. The highest possible party in a house mid term election since 1938. And the largest house swing from one party to the other since 1948. Americans were angry with the democrats' efforts on Health Care Reform feeling hoodwinked. By a 14100 page bill crafted in such a fashion. That members of congress were urged to quote passage so we can find out what is in it as an House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and remembered percent. After four years or further democratic control of the senate. Republicans were about to wrest control in the 2014 mid term elections from majority leader Harry Reid. Keeping it for the remaining two years of Obama's term. Republicans would finally be able to send some legislation to the president's desk a big target obamacare. In order to send an obamacare repeal bill to the president's desk. When only a 5446. Senate majority congressional Republicans had to use a budgetary tactic known as budget re conciliation. Which requires only a simple majority of votes in the senate. 51. In order to pass. This is the same method Democrats and used to pass the bulk of obamacare in 2000 jailed. The restoring americans' health care freedom reconciliation. Act of 2015. HR 3760. Q was he re conciliation legislation. For fiscal year 2016. And vehicle used to repeal obamacare. Predictive way Obama vetoed the bill on January 8. Of last year. During the presidential election cycle into when he sixteenth. Republicans were once again given the nod by the nation. By retaining the majority in the house. Keeping a 5248. Majority in the senate and winning the White House when the election of Donald. 45 president of the United States. Obamacare. Once once again in the cross hairs of the Republican may jar. Now. Where do we go from here with the new point. And I will continue. With congressman Duncan starts on this. When we come right back. Here on the Bobby Mack show on Wednesday. On 1063 WL RG. Alamo heads up out there from one of our ways there's Bob just hit a four car wreck on 85 south. Between highway fourteen and Allen right lane blocked there okay for car wreck 85 south between highway fourteen and alum. Bob get well soon you sound like Pat Buchanan and he sounds like the crypt keeper. Bob Arkansas actually plays Seton Hall in session one Texas southern boys do concession to great to have you back.

Bob I taught my daughter's not only how to tell time on the clock but also how to use 24 hour time military time yet GMT. Greenwich shim ma means that have to know the basics in order to progress Wayne from liberty. Bob about the problem of the brackets not being available on the mobile phone site. Easy fix from the mobile phone site go to the very bottom of the page and then click full web site. Artists. Simple enough. Now. Q congressman Duncan stocks about the new plan under proposal. House speaker Paul Ryan and senate majority leader Mitch McConnell hokey usually budget reconciliation. Tactic to once a gun once again. Overcome the democrats' ability to filibuster general legislation in the senate. On the evening of march 6 house leadership rolled out the American healthcare act they re conciliation bill aimed at making changes to obamacare. Many of dubbed the bill Obama Carole white since it does not repeal the Affordable Care Act but instead nibbles around the edges. In an attempt to make Obama care less harmful. Council leadership promises a multi pronged legislative process involving three phase outs. Phase one the reconciliation bill faced true. The top down repeal of regulations. By secretary Tom price and they department of health and human services and face three. Additional bills that will make the necessary reforms to how insurance is sold across America. That would be of course being able to sell across state lines. The problem with phase three as many conservatives like senator Tom cotton an Arkansas and pointed out. Is it will be general bill would require sixty votes to pass in the senate. This is a heavy lift for senate Republicans and a deal making president. Who will need to win over eight Democrat senators to pass this legislation. First and foremost the American health care act does not repeal obamacare. The bill does repeal some facets of Obama here and there are some things don't like about the bill. Which include deep funding of Planned Parenthood something Republicans should have already been able to do. Repeal the individual mandate which requires everyone to purchase health insurance or pay gradually increasing fine. Repeal of the employer mandate which subsequently changes the definition of full time employment. Repeal of the medical device tax and other taxes on health insurance premiums and pharmaceuticals. While increasing the expense threshold for medical expense deductions. Ending the Medicaid expansion after three years. Repeal of the government subsidy for health insurance premiums. These are good things that were all included in the 2015 budget reconciliation bill which passed both houses of congress. The American health care act also repeals the individual mandate requiring everyone to have health insurance or pay a tax. But the house GOP plan replaces the individual mandate with its own penalty. A 30% penalty to the insurer if there is a lapse in coverage in essence. This is requiring people to have health insurance or risk paying more when they do obtain. The penalty will just be retained by the insurance companies instead of being collected by the government in the obamacare tax. And finally congressman Duncan writes the biggest question to ask ourselves this is this the best we can do it. And is this bill what Americans expected Republicans to do with their control of government is this the bold effort so many across America have expected. Is this the bill on which while campaigning on the repeal of obamacare in 2010. Republicans pinned their hopes of winning the majority in the house. Is this what draining the swamp looks like. As written. Is this the bill. That enabled candidates like former representative Steve Sutherland Republican Florida. To capture that Panama City house seat for Republicans for the first time since 18820. Has written is this the bill to compel the people in South Carolina its fifth congressional district. To elect representative nick mold rainy now he key trump Kenyan official. Over incumbent Democrat and budget committee chair John Spratt. Is the bill put forth by speaker Ryan. A bill that 400000. Plus patriotic Americans flooded Capitol Hill to push the war and to Tea Party rally in 2009. Is a language in this bill when Republicans had in mind when they embrace the 2010 pledge to America which promised. The repeal of obamacare and lastly. Is the current language in the bill what Republicans were fighting for in 2013. When the government shut down for sixteen days. During the continuing resolution fight over obamacare. Congressman Duncan continues I ran for congress on repealing obamacare. Not nibbling around the edges not exchanging one mandate for another. I ran to unwind government limit the size and scope of government and unleash the things that make America great. One of the most powerful institutions that has built this country is the free market capitalism. Government has no business being and health care or the health insurance business. We've allowed safety net programs like Medicaid and Medicare to become big. Bureaucratic nightmares and restrict choice dictate terms and mandate coverage in force with a carrot and stick mentality. And funded by the tax dollars are hard working Americans. Medicaid and Medicare are no longer safety net programs they have become V health insurance for many Americans. These programs entangle the federal government with its money. The stage to run Medicaid programs and hospitals and doctors who must comply with bureaucratic mandates. Often crafted by people will Littleton no understanding of the doctor patient relationship. Medical diagnoses are treatments. Is this the senate policies the American people expected when trump Randy in 2016 on repeal of obamacare. How do you think they will react when these are the only part of repeal the past because some members of congress cannot sell free markets and US government. The actor in their districts. I believe they won't feel betrayed. That is why the bill would house leadership is an addition its current form is not one and I can support. That doesn't mean that I will vote no on the final package we don't know what that's going to look like yeah. There are are enough conservative members alike many. Who have the same problems with the current language of the bill to push for substantial changes negotiations remain ongoing. Including those between house and senate conservatives house and Senate Leadership. As well as with the White House. I believe that the house rules committee may present us with a manager's amendment. One that seeks to address our concerns to the final bill. My hope is that we along with the American public any good chance to study that text before we vote on it thus avoiding a policy ask. Moment and fulfilling our promise of transparency to the American people. This is a defining moment in our own rendezvous with destiny and we owe it to the American people to get it right. Congressman Jeff Duncan fueled join me tomorrow on the program in the south. In the 51 hour to talk about the missed what's wrong what's it like to write about it. And and is it right on its face. Is is the trail the right word to say that of obamacare is not fully repealed has the promise of president trump and every other Republican that ran on that platform. I'm for the last six or eight years well six Ers as the Cayman and in 2010. Are are they essentially going back on their word to their own dollars.

Okay concerning that statement you read from just unclear just. Two important things first what you really should bring a storm. And should be brought to every politician on the planet. Any time your statement includes the phrase rendezvous with destiny. It's more tricky and you treat it like being any. You he I know I did it could be it could be mid way or it could be Pearl Harbor. I could you rendezvous with destiny about an hour what are you there. About my destiny tonight. I guess that is everywhere that's that's that's where you're headed and there and it's you know what Michael it's unavoidable. It is purely here is where Credo anyway is it is your appointment with destiny and don't forget Michael and sure meeting. That appointment was destination. That done the ceiling is the roof as Michael Jordan's. It really does. Also very is that there are three big differences between a government tax per hundred insurance. And it 30% increase in your insurance bill troops watching your insurer yeah. First one of those you're auto insurance policy exact same thing collapses they charge you more when you get that we had over right. The second thing you know is an insurance company. How good writing should say we're not gonna charge that just to be competitive. Because it's not a government requirement it's just giving them permission charger that they want sure. And it and they're going to make a decision based on the parameters of their business or whether they can make money or not. Exactly and referred it most important part. And I can't emphasize this enough. Corporate jerks out there who were to get insurance right after that I doubt in your article and color surgery. And then as soon as good insurance company pays for the surgery there and I can't that if you. The company has no right to charge a little more to keep from going out of their books from you or. Well the last I checked. Worst insurance companies in business. Out not as nonprofits. Like to try and actually. Make some money. Exactly which is why whenever you hear a radio right leaning congressman I'm desperately and there are many. Let's not kid ourselves. A private company charging a penalty for a while true is not the same. Different format. Charging you want your Packers won trying.

You can also disable your Mike. By the way some people even crack open their laptop and removal. The microphones. Number two don't let every phone app tracks your location. Some of them don't have the same level of security. As I say FaceBook or Google Maps so they would be easier to hack into. You can change your tracking preferences in settings. Parent.
