Stupidity is the pre-existing condition with this bill

The draft bill, which was dated two weeks ago and was obtained by CNN Friday, closely follows House Republicans' previous proposals to repeal Obamacare, though it actually offers somewhat larger tax credits and stronger protections for those with pre-existing conditions. The bill, which was first reported by Politico, has been updated since, but remains in the "same ballpark," a GOP source told CNN. Lawmakers plan to release a final version of the bill the week of March 6.

This framework, however, would likely not be enough to allow everyone to keep their plans.
Ohio Governor John Kasich, a more moderate Republican, said he "completely" disagrees with the draft legislation and the size of the tax credits. He said he discussed it with President Trump in their meeting Friday.

"I just told him it was inadequate," Kasich told reporters. "To me, it's not acceptable."

Well I'll be damned...

CNN and other news outlets were blocked Friday from an off-camera White House press briefing, raising alarm among media organizations and First Amendment watchdogs.

The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Politico and BuzzFeed were also excluded from the meeting, which is known as a gaggle and is less formal than the televised Q-and-A session in the White House
briefing room. The gaggle was held by White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

He who craves riches feels fear on their account. No man, however, enjoys a blessing that brings anxiety; he is always trying to add a little more. While he puzzles over increasing his wealth, he forgets how to use it. He collects his accounts, he wears out the pavement in the forum, he turns over his ledger, in short, he ceases to be master and becomes a steward.--Seneca "Letters from a Stoic"

Conservatives Want Obamacare Repeal, and They Want It Now

Ted Cruz rejects John Boehner's contention that repeal and replace won't happen


"DeMint called the idea that there needs to be a replacement on the front end, “absolutely ludicrous.”

He also said that doctors, hospitals and insurance companies would still exist after repealing the law and that, “no one loses their insurance” under the repeal bill envisioned. That ignores analyses that show millions of people losing their health insurance under scenarios that simply repeal the law.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, for instance, released a report last month that estimated as many as 18 million would lose their insurance within a year and premiums would spike. As many as 32 million would lose insurance in the coming years, the report said."

(Don't be fooled. This isn't about lowering costs; it's about healthcare being a sector in the stock market that has room to run much higher)

Ajit Pai has been in charge of the FCC for about a month, and everyone’s still wondering what he’s gonna do with the place. Is he going to go full deregulation? Scale back here and there on his predecessor’s achievements? Focus on bipartisan issues?

So far we haven’t heard all that much from him on his plans, but on Wednesday, Pai stopped by CNBC’s Squawk on the Street for his first hard-hitting interview as chairman (he also spoke with Fox Business the other day, but it was much less eventful).

Squawk anchors David Faber and Jim Cramer got in six questions with Pai, during which he gave some vague but occasionally telling answers. You can watch the full interview below, but we’re also annotating some key parts of Pai’s answers to get a better sense for what he’s actually looking to do...
