Yep! The GOP talks on both sides of their mouths.

May 4, 2017
Quote:
WASHINGTON — The House on Thursday narrowly approved legislation to repeal and replace major parts of the Affordable Care Act, as Republicans recovered from their earlier failures and moved a step closer to delivering on their promise to reshape American health care without mandated insurance coverage.

Quote:
The Affordable Care Act will provide one of the largest expansions of mental health and substance use disorder coverage in a generation. Beginning in 2014 under the law, all new small group and individual market plans will be required to cover ten Essential Health Benefit categories, including mental health and substance use disorder services, and will be required to cover them at parity with medical and surgical benefits. The Affordable Care Act builds on the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA, or the federal parity law), which requires group health plans and insurers that offer mental health and substance use disorder benefits to provide coverage that is comparable to coverage for general medical and surgical care.

Liberals got rid of involuntary commitment. This is nothing compared to that.

Wait. The US House is controlled by the Democrats. They passed it.

The idiotic NY Times doesn't mention that the US House is under control of the Democrats. Not Trump, Not Republicans.

And Trump doubled down by making it easier for the mentally ill to buy firearms. Let that sink in.

Trump made it easier for the mentally ill to get guns when he rolled back Obama regulation

Post fail. Perhaps you should look at dates on things before typing up your storm.

Here are the specific details:

Quote:
And it came after the House and Senate, both of which were Republican-controlled at the time, passed a bill, H.J. Res 40, which revoked the Obama-era regulation. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Sam Johnson, a Texas Republican who retired at the end of 2018.

Pressed by NBC News why Trump nullified the rule, White House spokesman Judd Deere said Tuesday: “This was a wide-ranging regulation promulgated in the 11th hour of the previous administration that included all kinds of people with disabilities who are more than capable of owning a firearm. The rule went too far.”
