(CNN)When House Republicans secured their 216th "yes" on the American Health Care Act Thursday, Democrats immediately began taunting their across-the-aisle rivals. "Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye," Democrats sang at Republicans. A few Democrats even waved goodbye. The implication was obvious: Democrats believed many Republicans had just cost themselves their political careers by voting for an overhaul of Obamacare. And the DC political class wonders why people hate them.

Partisan parrots all about. Even here.
Maybe you missed the Republicans doing the same thing when Obamacare passed.
Its Gross. Nobody wins. The Republicans will certainly loose when the cap hits the fan in the next year if this passes. It's about as bad as the original document it intends to replace.
Until the lobby power is checked the profiteers are writing the bills.
Wake up folks. Your side sucks too.

Why not make Healthcare nonprofit? It would keep many ethical problems and conflicts of interest from the motive being profit on wall street. It would also keep government from controlling Healthcare and the companies could still compete.

The Dems don't get it. They're brainless or severely hearing impaired. The last election was a huge cry to get rid of the failing ObamaCare.
Americans screamed loudly that they wanted a repeal and replacement of ObamaCare. The vast majority of working Americans saw unsustainable increases in their premiums and deductibles. They might as well not even have had insurance coverage.
ObamaCare helped only a handful compared to the number it hurt.
Republicans heard the calls from America and because they are not lemmings like the Dems, it took some real effort to get a replacement.
The Dems are going to find just the opposite of what they think. People are sick of the Democrat Party and their party-first politics. Their rhetoric about helping middle class families is just that... rhetoric. They were too self-absorbed to hear the cries of help from working middle class families. They are the ones that are going to pay come voting time.
