This foolishness is exactly why the Democrats keep losing seats and votes.
When will they ever learn?



The leftists continue to promise their supporters things that could never actually happen, then blame the Republicans when they don't.

You know, if this GOP healthcare thing is going to be so, so great ... with so much "winning" and a "yuge" deal ...

You'd think they'd at least have some conversations on it, debate it or something.

The fact is...they went back and forth about the ACA for months and months. This nonsense?

All done in secret.

Generally deals and plans drawn up in secret are done so for a reason, and it's usually not because its full of fun surprises for the American public.


The ACA was drawn up in secret and passed without anyone reading it...


That's a bald-faced lie. The fact you got two stars so quick just shows how blind the partisanship here is.

The ACA took over a year and had all kinds of discussions, committee meetings and amendments. Hell, the Democrats allowed the Republicans to make over 100 amendments to the ACA.

Keep looking, because the truth is out there....


Took over a year and it was crap. Why? It was made to fail in order to usher in single payer when Hillary inevitably won.

And many of those amendments in the underlying bills weren’t substantial. So yes, they were allowed to make amendments, but they had no real teeth. Stop leaving out key parts of the story.

Medical insurance is written off by large companies. This means they are reducing the amount of money going into the tax coffers. So it already is costing the taxpayer.


The medical community needs it's wings clipped.

Obamacare would have never passed if GOP had majority in the Senate and the House like what they did to Bill Clinton's health reform.


Liberals lost the Congress and damn near the presidency* because of Obamacare.

*[Obammy barely won in 2012, and the only reason he did was because millions of Evangelicals refused to vote for a Mormon.]

Continue on with the deaths then? Because the Dems did it and caused it after all, right?
This is slow kill and culling of the population in all it's glory that people mention as a conspiracy. Conspiracy it is not.


What "deaths"?

Please give me an example.

Look to other systems and take the best. I find it difficult to believe we all get to stand around with out thumbs planted in our rears and watch the greed crash this mother into the ground.

We are drip fed that a tax based system is poison. Wonder who is driving this theme?

Us is #1 in costs----#37 in health outcomes. Our system is expensive and horrible.

You're f***king kidding me, right?

Saving us?

Assholes created the monster that is the ACA in the first place.

Cut the infection out.

23 million people can lose insurance for a few months... Lord knows that many times that got royally screwed for years because of this monster, self included.


Of that how many will die? Being cut off insurance for three months could mean a life or death situation for some.


Well I am sure that all of the rich people that scream how healthcare is life and death (like Bernie sanders) can sell some of their excess mansions and jets and pony up for these people for a couple of months.

They seem awfully generous with other peoples money.


ObamaCare was originally RomneyCare. You won't see ANY politicians fitting the bill.


This is a lie.

Romneycare was a state plan that relied on a massive expansion of Medicaid to pick up the slack for children, parents, pregnant women, and the long-term unemployed.

Take away that Medicaid expansion and Romneycare is just as big of a failure as Obamacare.


Romney: Without Romneycare, no Obamacare

Guess he lied about his Care huh?



“Without Tom pushing it, I don’t think we would have had Romneycare,” said Romney, who helped Stemberg open the first Staples store in the 1980s with the backing of Bain Capital. “Without Romneycare, I don’t think we would have Obamacare. So, without Tom a lot of people wouldn’t have health insurance.”

Source


Facts are facts. Romneycare does not work like Obamacare.

Again, without the massive Federal subsidy pumping up MA's Medicaid system, Romneycare, like Obamacare now, would collapse.

Medicaid makes Romneycare work. It's as simple as that.


I don't support these failureCares. And I sure as hell don't support more deaths because of them. You thought I did apparently because I don't want to see more people die when there should be a comprise for certain patients for example. Recall I was replying to:

Getting on medicare/medicaid is not that easy(takes time to process, apply for and qualify), will likely bog down the already crunched system for those in place.

This happens when Joe and Jane 6 pack look at the medical insurance bill and the mortgage payment and chooses to keep paying the house payment.

Tell you what? Soros has money. See those 23 million who can't afford medicine. Tell them to send the bill to Soros.

I was hoping for a better answer than that from you.

Unless we call a Constitutional Convention of the States and radically change the Constitution in several places, the Federal government has ZERO ability to provide the kind of single-payer system most advocates of government provided healthcare want.

Obama and the liberal Congress kept bumping up against that fact in 2009. That's why Obamacare had to be passed as a tax.

My preference would be to work within the framework of the existing Constitution and allow the states to pass their own healthcare laws (or not) creating this massively competitive market. Let Medicaid do what it did before Obamacare -- pick up the slack.

Yep..Obama/Democrats considered families of 4 who earned over $70,000 as WEALTHY and able to afford $1500 a month for their health insurance. No problem for these high rollers!

I have no idea. I would suspect that thousands probably died earlier than they otherwise would have because the physicians who were treating them and knew their health best were no longer in the picture.

That's a deduction of logic.

What is a fact is that Obamacare is collapsing. Who's fault is that? Republicans? President Trump? The Ghost of Nancy Reagan...?

Or is it 100% the fault of Obama and his liberal Congress?

Are you saying that the repubs are some sort of super geniuses?

What is the reason for thinking that in reference to health care?

What have they said or done that makes you think people in US will no longer be #1 in costs and #37 in health care outcomes?

Because god forbid a roof over ones head is more important than going to the doctor once a year for the healthy. Id rather pay my mortgage every month see what im paying for than pay my insurance every month then pay more when i need it once a year but 1st i need to meet an insane deductible. IF i can even do that -_-

It will. There's a lot of issues going on, some I have addressed before: The medical system is already not doing well. Doctors that aren't able to pay their college debts are then docked high percentage rates from their pay. If in debt they cannot take Medicaid/Medicare patients. Let alone Medicaid/Medicare does not always pay out. For example Drs. are leaving rural areas, where they have pay rate issues.

That coupled with leaving the gap smaller if their are less insurance options for people. The Baby Boomer Generation's needs can't be met by the failing health let alone people with dire issues.

Just curious -- and I promise to be nice
, I want to hear policy positions, ideas for a healthcare fix, and most importantly, who pays for it and how.
