Weren't you the one that told us it doesn't matter if it won't pass or have any Republican support the dems just need to put out their plan?

So what is so great about that? Yes she could get a cheaper policy however anything cheaper in savings is eaten up in higher deductibles.

You keep saying that the left is trying to fix it but as on right now there is nothing to indicate this as the media has said nothing about a fix.
Don't you mean former employer?

Come September 30th the ACA can not be changed via reconciliation. After that date it will take 60 votes.

And just yesterday Senator Lamar Alexander informed the Senate leaders that he has walked away from trying to reach a bipartisan agreement to stabilize the ACA as the democrats are no longer interested in stabilizing the ACA but are turning to Medicare for all.

Again, were you not the one saying dems are completely in the wrong because they would not put forth their plan?

Sure it does. You're sucking on the government tit and trying to keep others who need help from receiving a much smaller benefit.

HAHAHAHAHA.........shows how wrong you are DonnieD. When you retire you have to pay the sheriff 100% of the cost of the healthcare plan. It is deducted from our account on the 8th of each month.

Now do you want to try again???

I sure was. And now Alexander has given up on a bipartisan fix as the members of his committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. He and Senator Patty Murray have been working on a bipartisan fix since July. Nothing came of this that would had led to a fix of the ACA.

Now you have one side that wants Medicare for all and the other that want to dismantle the ACA. What we will have is the ACA collapsing and the left will not have the 60 votes in the Senate for years to come..................thus everyone will lose.

Methinks Mr. Anecdote would have a slightly different take on healthcare if his daughter had a prexisting condition.
