House Republicans Propose to Replace ACA

House Republicans today released a report outlining a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with "an accessible and affordable health care system that promotes quality care and peace of mind."

“With House Republicans releasing a framework for replacing the Affordable Care Act, NAIFA looks forward to working with Congress on health care issues as they draft legislative language,” said NAIFA President Jules Gaudreau. “The new proposal would improve the health care system in a number of areas, but some concerns are raised. NAIFA remains committed to working with legislators and regulators from both parties to ensure that the U.S. health insurance system encourages the vital work of agents and advisors and provides high quality and affordable plans for their business and individual clients.” 

NAIFA has advocated on behalf of a number of proposals in the plan, such as expanding Health Savings Accounts and Health Reimbursement Arrangements, increasing the number of premium pricing bands for health plans from three to five, and creating state-based high-risk pools with federal support.

Texas had a good program prior to ACA. Not sure either party can reverse the damage and revert back.
Begin a risk pool is fine, but you can't take the insureds out of ACA that came from rissk pools and just move them back. Damage has been done. Intent of the Adm. is for single payer system from birth to death and controlled by the Fed. Fact!

NAIFA is a nonpartisan organization, and we proudly serve members from both major parties, as well as independents, who hold a variety of political views. Our advocacy mission is simply to work toward favorable legislative and regulatory outcomes for insurance and financial advisors and consumers who are their clients. Our staff and grassroots advocates work with both Democrats and Republicans to achieve this end. This particular health care reform proposal happened to be the product of House Republicans. We have assessed that there are aspects of it that would benefit our members and their clients and aspects that would not. That is reflected in the blog post and the statement by NAIFA President Jules Gaudreau, neither of which is intended as an endorsement of either party.

I honestly came to this site to learn more about this org and potentially join. However, upon seeing this blog post clearly swayed in one political direction, I have been immediately turned off and will not be giving your organization any money to join as I will look at non-partisan organizations to work with.
