My mother has dwarfism and an unknown stomach issue that causes her to vomit up ever 3rd meal. I have to be at home most of the time to take care of her. I can only work part time. Before obamacare I could not afford health care, after obamacare I now have a great doctor. And my mothers health cost have gone way down. I'm not saying this as an emotional plea but to show ATS that not all poor and middle class have been hit with higher costs. My hope is that trumpcare will be better or at least as good as what I have now through the ACA. Just please please don't raise my mothers health costs.

Obamacare is a joke. It was a money grab for insurance companies.
One thing I know Donald Trump understands is the massive pile of money that businesses sit under with health insurance fees and as someone that has negotiated contracts with employers it's the main thing keeping wages and full-time employment down.
Universal would cure a lot of that. Respect to you for examining the situation. Stars all over.

Well all I have to say is I told you so. You better hope the GOP has something better that won't cause you to choose between medical care and food on the table or a roof over your head.

Democrats wanted a single payer system because of the out-of-control private bureaucracy is so inefficient. So who's fault is it when compromising with Republicans continues the 20% per year average rise in insurance premiums that was happening before and after ACA. Do you really think ACA is responsible for the rise? Did you even look at the 15 years of data leading up to ACA going into affect?

The best part is that the young "progressives" just opt out and choose to pay the fine. They're smart enough to know the cost isn't worth it, but they won't put their money where their mouth is when it comes to contributing towards their socialist ideals. I mean, why contribute towards the society you demand when you can just mandate someone else do it for you?
