    The new Republican health care bill

    I had to check several times that this isn't an Onion clone, but no, it's real.

    Check out the title of the bill. Are these guys 8 years old?

    https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-...bill/1275/text

    I'm surprised they didn't use "Make Healthcare Great Again".

    And to get a better idea of what it does see: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...=top-news&_r=0

    Wow... It does sound like a joke. It's somewhat ironic that it's opposed by nearly everyone.

    Well? This is interesting section.

    SEC. 503. LIBERATING THE LOCAL PRACTICE OF HEALTH CARE.
    (a) Waiving National Restrictions On Physician-Owned Facilities.—Section 1877 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395nn) is amended by adding at the end the following new subsection:


    “(j) Waiver Authority.—A physician or other entity may apply to the Secretary to waive any provision of this section and the Secretary may waive such provision with respect to such physician or entity if the Secretary determines that such waiver would—

    “(1) increase competition within the health care market;

    “(2) reduce the costs of health care; and

    “(3) increase the quality of health care.”.

    (b) Removing Certain State And Local Licensure Or Certification Restrictions.—

    So my doctor can be????




    Well, I think Voo Doo Doctors still work for chickens and booze still.

    So what exactly do you guys not like about it.

    You seem to whine a lot but not about anything specific.
