It may well require a rewrite of their oath. We will need rewrite the rules for every hospital who in the past has used Medicaid to treat and could turn no one away. We need to tell NGO'S, yes they have a part in this as well. Nursing homes, rehab, convalescent centers who will no longer have medicaid have to make the decisions about who and how they will accept patients or close down. We will need to tell every school district as school nurses will go away unless you fund them yourselves.

    Biggie! When sick babies or handicapped babies whose parents have no money or no/inadequate insurance are born, we need to make the decision to to not treat and not resuscitate and let die. In fact under the logical rules we will not treat pregnant women who don't have the proper resources.

    ALL THE RULES FOR PALLIATIVE CARE will need to be written. In other words for those who will die and with no nursing homes or rehab for those without insurance, I'd like them to die with some comfort (unless we are truly cruel). If they aren't owed they, then that discussion must be had as well!

    There is a great deal of discussion, adjustments and considerations for this. Let's state it, legislate and then let congress start rewriting it's bill tomorrow. I'm absolutely serious.
    All the RWNJ's still ignoring your post....they do not have the balls to admit their real beliefs.

    Really? How many health care and medical organizations support Trumpcare? Does zero sound about right?

    You are the one bitching about the process Professor.

    Just say..."I don't have any solutions...I'm just bitching". At least you would be both correct and honest.
