Activist Tool Kit - No insurance company bailouts. Oppose Lamar Alexander's 'cost sharing' plan = insurance bailouts. No illegal subsidies to lawmakers.
State of Play
Before the August recess, the Senate failed to pass a "skinny repeal" of Obamacare. The bill was not a meaningful repeal, but rather a legislative vehicle that would have allowed the House and Senate to go to a conference committee to negotiate a stronger bill - ideally including reforms to let states opt out of Obamacare's costly regulations.
Moderate Republican Senators refused to support that bill despite promises on the campaign trail over the last seven years.
Rather than fighting for their campaign promises, moderate Republicans are now signaling they are ready to work with liberals to bail out the broken law.
Conservatives cannot allow this.
Any effort at bipartisan stabilization will all but guarantee the status quo of rising premiums and declining choice. Simply throwing more taxpayer dollars at the problem will not solve it.
We need to get t Senators on public record ...
Do you support Senator Lamar Alexander's effort to bailout Obamacare?
(Alexander's CSR plan - Cost Sharing Revenue ... market stablization - is political speak for bailouts. He wants hearings when the Senate returns in September. We need to apply pressure to the senators to say no by publicly exposing their support or non-support). See here for Target Senators
. Make this proposal toxic!
Congress should oppose any attempt to bail out Obamacare and instead go back to the table and continue to negotiate a bill that actually repeals and replaces Obamacare.
Since the Senate can't garner enough votes to bring relief to the millions suffering under Obamacare, it's time Congress subject itself to the full brunt of the law.
Back in 2013, the Obama administration's Office of Personnel Management (OPM) exempted members of Congress and their staff from the full burden of Obamacare by letting them enroll in the small-business health care exchange and receive taxpayer subsidized plans.
President Trump can unilaterally undo Obama's unconstitutional exemption, requiring members of Congress to live under the laws they pass. Facing the reality of double digit premium increases, like millions of Americans on the individual market, Congress may feel pressure to come back to the negotiating table and follow through on years of promises to finally repeal Obamacare.
