The Obamacare repeal failed — here’s what people are saying

Republicans failed to pass a new healthcare bill to replace Obamacare. (Sigh.) People have lots of opinions on how to move forward. Here are what some are saying in our latest opinion roundup.


So, what do you think about all that's gone down surrounding healthcare during the last seven months? Do you have any opinions of your own on how Republicans should move forward? Let us know on Facebook or share them with us in the comments.

    I want the government out of the health insurance business and out of health care. I get we may need government to help the group of people Obamacare was supposed to help – those children turning into adults with a pre-existing condition but I do not want a government solution at all. I like capitalism. I get it is risky but my analogy is you have 10 pounds of sugar and a 5 pound bag to hold the sugar. Government will get rid of 5 pounds of sugar and put the remaining sugar in the bag. Capitalism will say – heck no not only let’s get another 5 pound bag, let’s get more sugar and more bags while we are at it. I want the government out of this business – they are giving benefits to people who did not pay in – just like social security. Government needs to invest in only those people who invest in themselves – that is people who try and people who make an attempt to make it. Sorry – but I am tired of participation awards and everyone has to have everything.

    It would be hard for us to implement, but I like Germany’s plan of using non-profit insurance companies where the companies compete on who can give the best service! The money for it comes from the government, so we would need tax reform, lower drug prices and moving away from fee for service to make it work.

    Universal Heathcare is a joke! Please look at the U.K., Australia and Canada. Everyone in these countries with any assets has a supplementary policy so they can see a doctor when sick. Everyone is a 50+ percent tax bracket and only go to the hospital to die! Tell me one thing any government has done more efficiently than private capitalist?

    Its time for universal healthcare. Give us the same plan as Congress or a plan like Australia’s, or Britain, or one of these countries plans that works.
