#EndorseThis: The Grim Reaper Celebrates New ‘Obamacare Lite’ Plan

Share
Colbert, Obamacare

Last night, the Republicans unveiled their hastily slapped together plan to replace Obamacare, which did not go over well with either party.

On the Late Show, Stephen Colbert reviewed the new plan and commended the GOP for keeping some of the positive parts of Obamacare, like allowing young adults to stay on their parent’s insurance and not discriminating due to pre-existing conditions. As Colbert explained, Trumpcare is similar to its predecessor, but with more tax breaks for insurance companies and less coverage for the Americans that need it the most.

“Conservatives are calling it ‘Obamacare Lite’: Great taste, less coverage,” Colbert remarked comparing the new plan to a terrible diet soda.

Colbert wondered who could possibly endorse a plan that kicks people off their health insurance. Suddenly, the Grim Reaper — or was it Steve Bannon? — appeared behind the Late Night host and danced onstage to celebrate his good fortune.

“We’re all gonna die,” Colbert joked after dancing with the Grim Reaper.

You don’t want to miss Colbert’s take on Sean Spicer’s press conference — especially the references to the size of the bill.

    Of all the mean things Trump has said and done, the worst is eliminating the subsidies that helped millions of lower middle class Americans get comprehensive health insurance, and replacing it with a system based on tax credits that help only the insurance companies and the well off. Hopefully they will take the time and explain how a family of four, buying a small house, with modest tax liability will benefit from tax credits. The truth is that with the exception of the subsidy issue, and eliminating the mandate to have insurance coverage, the plan is mostly a hastily prepared copy of Obamacare.

      But, but, but…..didn’t you hear Chaffetz say that perhaps people would stop buying new IPhones and save their money for their healthcare? As if the poor, low-income, disabled, or retired buy IPhones….seriously! And, he said that people needed to save money for their healthcare…..how can you save money if you don’t have any?

        The GOP is able to accrue money quite easily and lots of it doing nothing, so in their way of thinking, the poor should be able to do the same. It’s as simple as that.

          It’s pretty easy to do if you have money to begin with, but most of the people getting coverage through the ACA with the subsistence payments don’t have much money to save or to budget! You can’t budget if you don’t have money in the first place!

        Part of our problem is that many elected officials, especially Trump and most members of his cabinet, or so detached and unfamiliar with the struggles the poor and the middle class experience every single day of their lives that they are unaware of the damage their policies are doing to that large segment of our population. This is not new, by the way, who can forget Reagan telling us about the welfare Queen that drove her Cadillac to collect her government handout? That is one of the reasons for their determination to repeal the ACA and replace it with a system that helps those who don’t need financial help, at the expense of those who need subsidies to afford the healthcare we all need to live healthy and productive lives. Needless to say, there are other reasons, with ideology and greed very high on the list.

    “Obamacare Lite”—an actual Bud Light would work better for a patient than the damaged goods the GOP calls a healthcare plan.
