Republicans have promised numerous replacement plans for obamacare for years as part of repeal and replace - here in 2014 with the senate Web Link and here in 2013 with John McCain Web Link among many others.

None have ever been "scored" by the CBO or any other agency as to the effectiveness and costs/savings. Without independent math, it's just a bunch of campaign slogans, and pathetically weak ones at that (Paul Ryan's House GOP budget plan includes the very same obamacare medicare cuts that he spoke against on the campaign trail.)

I await a finished Republican replacement plan with real numbers and a "scored" evaluation.

I've been waiting 4 years.

WHAT?!! The Almanac's journalism hits a new low. These constant invented stories absent of any facts whatsoever are not news, and come from a desire to stir up acrimony in the community. Now there will be a Soviet style editing (i.e., removal) of this comment.

"absent of any facts"

What? I supplied links to the plans from the Senate GOP and the plan from John McCain. If you know of any obamacare replacement plan that has had audited "math" done, please share!!!

Palin? Now THAT'S funny!

The right has no one that can beat Hillary in 2016 if she runs. They ll probably run Mitt again. What jokers. Name a rightie that can beat Hillary.

Hillary Clinton and congressmen alike have called on Obama to arm Syria’s rebels. But the president fumed at lawmakers in a private meeting for suggesting he should’ve done more.

President Obama got angry at lawmakers who suggested in a private meeting that he should have armed the Syrian rebels, calling the criticism “horseshit.”
