Everything old is new again.
From The Hill
Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) on Wednesday said he was poised to unveil a wide-ranging replacement plan for the president’s healthcare reform law.
“We will be introducing a bill, maybe even today … that will be a comprehensive approach. There are a whole lot of things in it,” he told reporters. [...]
Price said the bill is similar to one he offered in the last Congress, which had more than 80 cosponsors.
Price’s bill would, among other things, repeal the individual mandate, turn employer-based health insurance into a glorified savings account, and bring back pre-existing conditions by forcing the sick into expensive high-risk pools.
Price says his constituents are “frustrated with Washington” because “things don’t seem to be getting done.” Yet another fruitless attempt to repeal Obamacare couldn’t have anything to do with that, could it?
If Tom Price’s bill makes it to the floor, it would mark the 38th attempt to repeal Obamacare and his constituents will continue being frustrated with Washington because nothing is getting done.
