Do current discussions about Repeal and Replace of the ACA sound mythical to you? Like Unicorns- everyone’s heard of them but no one has ever seen one.

Repealing and Replacing the ACA may be more serious than Unicorns but if Republicans continue to talk about make-believe actions with make-believe deadlines they may soon cause results which likely will be negative. They may lull us all into a make-believe trance that causes us to forget just how hurtful the ACA truly is to America and our citizens!

As of this writing we have seen noting in writing from the Republicans about AHCA 2.0. We’ve heard about an “invisible reinsurance system” but no details and certainly nothing that would lead even the most avid supporter of ACA to think that the ACA is in any danger of change.

Your loyal author is trying to contain his cynicism regarding this Republican AHCA effort partly because I don’t like cynics but also because we still have tax reform and the border wall in flux which could lead to a cynic over-load. So I guess it’s healthy to maintain our optimism about the changes to our healthcare delivery system.

One of the most frustrating aspects of this matter of repeal and replace is that it just does not seem complicated to me. We’ve listed the specific items which need addressed to correct, improve and set the American healthcare system back on solid ground. If the Republicans were smart they would throw the AHCA bill in the shredder and start at least with a new title which includes “Repeal and Replace.

So, this week you won’t need to read too long because as of today I honestly believe that R&R will not regain center stage until this Fall. My theory is that then the Republicans will see the Insurer’s rates and coverage for 2018 and the elections of 2018 will flash brightly telling them they better get on it.

That’s it for this week.
Let us know what you think.
Though it is often frustrating, we are still in this together!
