Skip to comments.McMorris Rodgers says ACA likely to stay
Posted on 04/27/2014 2:10:40 PM PDT by F15Eagle
With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said its unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed.
We need to look at reforming the exchanges, the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday.
The five-term congresswoman and chair of the House Republican Conference kicked off her re-election campaign this week with visits to Walla Walla, Colville and Spokane. She faces Democratic challenger Joe Pakootas.
McMorris Rodgers has been part of the Republican leadership in the House that has voted multiple times to repeal parts or all of President Barack Obamas signature health care law. GOP members have said the law is unworkable, will increase costs for some and force others into inadequate coverage or plans they dont want.
McMorris Rodgers continued those criticisms Thursday, but said the framework established by the law likely will persist and reforms should take place within its structure.
It is a top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to health care, she said. Consumers should have more choice for their coverage, and Democrats should abandon the idea that everyone will enroll because of the mandate, McMorris Rodgers added.

I say sweep them all out. I've had it with the lot of them.
Hope you feel better now - I know I do...DITTO!!!
He’s just passing gas. He knows damn well that ObamaCare is going to collapse sooner or later. “Amnesty” is going to do it in.
Joe Namath says: “The Colts are going to kill us.”
The paid off RINO’s don’t want it repealed. They want it *fixed*. This is their gravy train and they don’t want anyone or anything stopping it.
This McMorris-Rogers witch is just another one lining her pockets off of our tax dollars and this debacle known as the *Affordable* healthcare act.
McMorris Rogers? Sh!t. That settles it for me.
I’m so glad he brought light into my dim world.
Who is this doosh?
The Republicavians at it again. The only thing they how do to do is CAVE.
Defund the GOP. Do not give them one dime.
Another defeatist Republicrat. Republican voters in her district should send her a note that after this they have decided to vote for the official Democrat and retire her.
Nah lets elect more like that. Just to say we won. Because I learned from some freepers that was what mattered.
You don’t want dome principled purist do you? /s
not surprising. government does not take control, then meekly hand it back.
Rodgers is no prophet. When has Congress ever admitted it made a mistake and repealed something like this? It could be killing half the people, but we had it shoved down our throats by the democrats and it’s going to stay no matter what.
The perps of ACA and their enablers deserve the hell that’ comes their way.
GET OUT OF THE WAY WORTHLESS LOSER.
Until we stop sending the Big Government cartel our money, they will keep their boots on our throats.
Even Reagan acknowledged that the nearest thing to eternal life in this world is a government program.
How do you reform a system by accepting all the sick, be popular so you cancel all the unpopular taxes and mandates, force no one healthy to pay for it and keep the system running? Sounds like Social Security disaster repeating itself. Only way to keep the system going (benefits but no taxes) is to borrow and spend till the debt is too big to ignore. At that point all the RINO’s and Dems who support the system are long gone before it implodes our national debt.
Throw the bums out.
“Fixing” Obamacre is rather like “restoring” the Chevrolet Corvettes that were sucked into the sinkhole under the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Eight smashed, twisted pieces of junk were pulled up out of the crater, and now there will be an attempt to “restore” the vehicles with substitute parts (essentially a total remanufacture), but attaching the VIN numbers and matching identifiers on the substitute parts. Even if that is done, none would ever be a motor car again, they are forever museum pieces.
It may still be called the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (as amended)” but nobody will be able to recognize what was the original framework.
It would still be totally unaffordable, and lacking even elementary protection for patients. And it will still not be a viable or enforceable piece of legislation.
Better yet, don’t give away your vote for these bums.
... because the vast majority of Americans have never wanted it?
... because it's going to destroy the best health-care system in the world?
... because it's unconstitutional, despite the torturing of the Constitution by Roberts?
... because it will decimate the US economy?
... because the example of the British National Health Service is so compelling?
... because it will steal the individual freedom of the American people while at the same time robbing them blind?
Highly-accurate and appropriate.
The ACA is likely to stay and the GOP is going away. I’m sick of RINOs selling us out. As much as I’ve resisted leaving the GOP if they pass this supposed amnesty in August then you know for sure you can put a fork in them because they will be done as a viable political entity. I’m ready to join the new conservative party whatever it may be called. I may not always agree with conservatives on every issue but I know they will put the country first before all else unlike the libs and the RINOS. I’m so frustrated at our country being treated like crap by our politicians.
It was never about healthcare. It’s designed to control the masses while paying off the ruling class.
It will morph into whatever they need it to do/be. It needs a knife through the very heart of it. That’s what ALL Pubbies should be doing....not salvaging it.
It could’ve died it’s own natural death with the atrocious roll out and cancellations/inferior plans/Rx drops, but no....Pubbies once again snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
none of your valid points matter. what matters is that government usurped control, and history shows us that it never gives it up once it has it. the aca is here to stay, and it WILL get worse because the end goal is single payer
I say she is wrong, but many say they haven’t heard the GOP give out any options. It would benefit the party and all the American people if Ryan, Rubio and others began to publicize and educate us about their alternatives to Obamacare. Yes, we need a plan to offer easy coverage, so let’s hear about it now, before the November campaigns become clogged with propaganda. They have the rest of spring and all summer to talk to us.
What few there are better get on it quickly, I agree.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness; That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.These words were immortalized for a reason, after all.
Ditto to what you day...Get out of the way....we want to repeal it!!!!
Regardless that Rep McMorris Rodges swore to protect and defend the Constitution, she is naïvely overlooking that federal
Obamacare Democratcare was wrongly established without the required consent of the Constitution's Article V state majority.
But I also believe that taxpayers will ultimately get some kind of government healthcare, if that is what legal majority voters want. However, I don't believe that it will be Democratcare as more and more voters wise up to the fact that bloated, unreadable Democratcare was scandalously established outside the framework of the Constitution.
It’s “unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed” with GOPe’s like this in leadership.
“McMorris Rogers? Sh!t. That settles it for me.
Im so glad he brought light into my dim world.
Who is this doosh?”
Well you’re right about being a douche, but he’s a she! I always worry about anyone who is so self-important that they use their middle name. Especially politicians and judges.
The pubbies are working overtime to lose the next election.
Ditto for me too. Nothing left but garbage in Washington.
Congress did repeal the Catastrophic Care Act in the late 1980's. Congress faced the full fury of the Third Rail of American politics: Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries.
I 2nd that to infinity....
Concerned citizens in her district should rent huge roadside signs saying, “McMorris Rogers is shoving Obamacare down your throats!”
