    Bottom line - Your title is still a lie.
    Bottom line is Joe Biden took away the potential for this rule to help people afford care. How is it a good thing to remove helpful laws? You really don't give a shit about helping people, you just think it's a big game
    This would be an opportunity to give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

    if you believe the government should do everything it takes to help americans afford health care, why are you against obamacare and universal health care? biden and his team will do more to help all americans afford decent health care than repubs have done in our history. so you can just quit crying your crocodile tears.

    Many Last-Minute Health Rules Subject to Biden 60-Day Pause (3)
    Jan. 21, 2021, 4:01 AM; Updated: Jan. 22, 2021, 11:16 AM

    HHS put out rules until Trump’s final full day
    Here are more than 20 actions now on hold

    From insulin to life-saving medical devices to last-ditch efforts to protect premature infants (including those from “live birth” abortions), multiple rules posted by the Health and Human Services Department in the final days of Donald Trump’s presidency are subject to a 60-day pause.

    The halt on Trump-era rulemaking includes two controversial rules designed to curb high drug prices—one that changes the way pharmacy liaisons and drugmakers can pay each other and another that ties Medicare rates for expensive drugs to the prices paid in other countries.

    A Wednesday memo circulated by White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain said all rules, guidances, or other agency actions that didn’t take effect prior to noon that day—the official handover time from Trump to President Joe Biden—will be subject to review by the new administration before they can take effect. If the previous administration’s actions raise questions of “fact, law, or policy,” the designated officials now leading the agencies can further delay effective dates and consult with the Office of Management and Budget about other actions. The agencies can also open comment periods on those actions.

    If there are no such questions, no further action is needed. The rule, proposal, or guidance can be considered active and effective, the memo said.

    A regulatory pause is a common tradition among incoming presidents to ensure that the unfinished policies from the prior administration align with the new one. In many cases, there are no substantial disagreements among the two administrations and the policies can continue on their normal path. But the pause gives incoming officials a chance to weed out the actions that go against the current president’s stance.

    The HHS issued a slew of rules and other announcements in the weeks leading up to Biden’s inauguration, including a substantial change to a Medicare payment model for expensive prescription drugs as late as Jan. 19.

    My God, you are an idiot. The rule is on hold until March 22. He didn't take away any potential. He simply delayed the implementation of the rule to see if it makes sense. It isn't a law, you moron. It's an EO. A better way of helping people would be to make sure they all have health insurance but you think it is just a game when it comes to the ACA.
    He that tweets much, is much mistaken

    Spin all you want to Goebbels. The result is Nazi Joe makes insulin more expensive again.

The thing about rules is that they don't take effect immediately. The particular rule referred to wasn't scheduled to take effect until Jan 22. Then the rule only affects some clinics and patients of those clinics making less than $44,000.


    So, your title is one big lie. The price of insulin today is the same that it was on Dec 21. Biden didn't change that price one cent. Even if the rule had gone into effect, it wouldn't have changed the cost of insulin for 90% of people getting insulin.
    Tinfoil has posted lying obnoxious crap ever since he flounced around demanding the mods ban him. He said if they don't he'd definitely troll this place. Why the guy needs them for him to quit this place speaks worlds. Expect him to post obscure shit from the bowels of the internet or misrepresent something else.

    Why do you hate them when you assume they are all without insurance? Perhaps if we expanded Medicaid and Medicare then everyone would have insurance.

    I'm glad I got my epipens before this happened.. Dang.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    It is White Progs that view Blacks as a child-like race incapable of caring for themselves and too irresponsible to own firearms.

    Your false promise of utopian healthcare, benefits rich white women the most.

    Wasn't that what Obama said the ACA would accomplish?
