Washington - Republicans released a modified health care bill on Monday, in an attempt to shore up support among both conservatives and moderates for their legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Under the modified version, states would be allowed to require able-bodied Medicaid recipients without dependents to work beginning in October. Those changes were made to draw support from conservative members disappointed that the original bill didn’t go far enough to undo the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.

The House will vote on the bill on Thursday.

That sounds fair. But how about charge them a copay or small premium too?

Also how do all these medicad cuts help us middle class obtain more affordable insurance premiums on our end?

Far too much time is being spent on this political vendetta to unravel the ACA regardless of the consequences. Tax reform is a subject that everyone can get behind to make our lives simpler and policies more fair. This is where the new administration should be heading. Less tweet, more tangible.

My health insurance premuims cost me way more than taxes. The tax system is actually pretty fair towards middle class famulies as myself. After my motrgage and chid deductions I can't really kvetch about taxes. And its not just me, its most middle income families. But my health care is a bloody fortune.
