AETNA's CEO's salary went from $15 million to $30 million under Obamacare, and they're still trying to strong arm more money out of us....?

...does Trump-care show they finally won?

Update:

You're right. They're not done screwing every last red cent out of us yet.

    Because health insurers and pharmaceutical companies are saying (with money) we want more money, let us sell worthless policies again, lets keep restrictions off the pharmaceutical companies from competition.

    What do doctors know about healthcare anyway? The important thing to Republicans is not healthcare, it's getting money from the middle class for insurers and the pharmaceutical industry.

    Providers of medical care, including the American Medical Association, that have benefited from millions of paying customers under the Affordable Care Act have come out strong against the GOP-led U.S. House of Representatives’ American Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare.

    Amid mounting opposition from conservative Republicans and all Democrats in Congress, those providing healthcare are overwhelmingly opposed to the House legislation backed by Speaker Paul Ryan, with the AMA calling it "critically flawed," harming "vulnerable populations." The AMA joined a chorus of groups, including the American Hospital Association and the American Academy of Family of Physicians, bemoaning the House bill’s lack of coverage, financial details and transparency.

    The American Health Care Act (AHCA) would transfer federal funding from helping low- and middle-income Americans get health care to tax breaks for high-income Americans and health care special interests.

    1. Medicaid: The Senate bill slashes spending on Medicaid in order to cut taxes on the rich. This is a cruel and unnecessary tradeoff for the richest country in the history of the world.

    2. Death Spiral: It eliminates the individual mandate; reduces subsidies for the poor; reduces benchmark plans to an actuarial value of 58 percent; and increases deductibles and copays. Whatever instability Obamacare currently has, this will make it far, far worse.

    3. Essential Health Benefits: Like the House bill, the Senate bill makes it easy for states to cut essential health benefits, which motivates insurers to offer low-end policies for the working poor that are worthless—but only if you read the fine print.

    4. More Uninsured: It will lead to tens of millions fewer people having health coverage. CBO will provide an exact number in a few days, but we already know it’s going to be big.

    5. Lifetime Caps: Guts protections against annual and lifetime caps, and because of the way the bill is written, it’s likely to do this even for employer insurance, not just for the individual market.

    If only we could choose to buy different plans and the Government wasn't forcing us to give this company our hard earned money!

    Logic: health insurance CEO pay increased 15 million under Obamacare. Conclusion: Trump is bad. Another conclusion - you're a moron.
