    The ACA was a COMPLETE DISASTER.

    FLets not forget the people who couldn’t even afford the so called affordable care act! They have been slighted by that fact💯 We were fined because we could NOT pay the premium they asked of us. It was more than my car insurance among other costly bills. But I and many others were fined because we just saw no way to justify paying it. I reduced and cut away many things to see if I could make it work, but couldn’t. No one talks about those people though.???

    America is

    23 in education.
    37 in healthcare.
    34 in raising family index.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it's wallet for the rich.

    I don't understand how anyone has wet dreams taking away the insurance of people who are less fortunate. I don't understand it.

    And after 4 years of promises the Trump/Pence healthcare plan is —- " Don't Take So Long To Die!" The longer you hold on, the less of a tax break some billionaire gets!

    Can you name 3 friends who could afford healthcare under ACA? I can’t. SMH lies, lies and more lies.

    Apparently not enough Americans care about affordable healthcare.
    Otherwise they'd vote for lawmakers who'd ensure it'll be available.
    We have more lawmakers who want to get rid of it which means more Americans voted for these lawmakers.

    The Supreme Court has to ask itself how the founding fathers would react if the government said their slaves had to have health insurance.

    A rush to injustice Barrett claims its against the law to recuse one self.. “what bull. She has no personal opinion. America does not need another slam dunk like the impeachment debacle with a supreme court judge like Roberts, a frog on a log letting a senate vote without hearing evidence or reviewing documents. Boland a witness in the room where it happened, was told he could not testify. His evidence would not be heard. Trump now has tainted the high court of the land not just the Walter Reed Hospital but undermined the congressional oversight and perjury the Mueller report . Trump obstructed justice on a daily basis for nearly four years. Not to mention 2016 election was a fraudulent hack. If we cannot indite a sitting president we cannot seat a cherry picked nominee for to perform premeditated crimes. ie , shoe in Trump and screw the ACA. . Liars. God bless America.

    I believe this might be one of the disastrous revenge evil acts donny pulls out of his butt between November and January. There is no insurance program by the republikkkans to replace the insurance that trump destroys. So donny and putin's republikkkan congress will dump that back into democrats' laps to come up with another insurance plan.. and I doubt these LAZY do– nothing democrats will want to exert that much work. Lazy democrats only want to tackle jobs that require them to say "We will leave that up to the voters to decide at election time". And democrats continue to allow republikkkans or whoever the criminal is, to continue to commit their criminal acts. I am not voting republikkkan but voting for a Ddemocrat is like voting for a chronically unemployed, waste of money, lazy bum. They dont enforce the law, they dont stand up for the Consiitution, they dont fight fo egg our country!! I'm tired of hearing, If democrats pulled that stunt the republikkkans would have a fit". Thus just shows how little the democrats care. The d er mofeats ssd should be having a first about TG hose illegal ballot boxes the republikkkans set up in California. That is ILLEGAL- it's not a choice. But seeings how smallwell and Pelosi are from California, those who 2 will do absolutely nothing. Those 2 will wait

    Everybody who works pays Medicare taxes. Most workers also pay a premium for their insurance, then pay hundreds or thousands for deductibles and their company may pay a sum to help provide the plan. As more people pay into insurance the costs gets cheaper. I would rather pay more into Medicare to cover basic preventive healthcare costs and not worry about deductions. It is not an entitlement since our taxes pay it. Other coverage covering specific needs should be cheaper too. Insurance companies can still offer "golden plans" to the wealthy – they don't have to go away. Insurance company supporters oppose having government Medicare pay medical bills but they will gladly allow them to cover health expenses if they can avoid paying.

    Spoiler, without the ACA, most Americans will go back to having no coverage. There is no Trumpcare plan because Trump DOES NOT care. And without some coverage people will die by the tens of thousands because of republican corruption for companies bribing them through PACs. We need Medicare for All. Improve quality of care, reduce cost, insure absolutely everyone.
