So, allow insurers to charge more based on age and condition, shrink medicaid, no more tax credits to help people pay, eliminate taxes on wealthy, of course everything should be in the hands of the states, except for new york, and defund the cdc prevention funds. I look forward to this defense.

The defense is simple. "We are Republicans. This is what we do."

Expecting anything different from them is delusional.

They took ownership once they had the House, Senate and the WH. There are major problems with the ACA. Just yesterday Aetna added to the list Iowa that they were leaving in 2018. This leaves Iowa with 1 company statewide.

So if they sat back and did nothing I do not see how they could had ever claimed it was on the left because it was "their bill", as they had the power to change, or safe the ACA, and did nothing.

The only way they can not be blamed is if their bill works.

Boston Red Sox issue their first ever lifetime ban when a fan used a racial slur and was turned in by another fan.

Which is why the joke is going around that AHCA stands for "About to Hand Control Away."

They're committing political suicide.

And pete does not want you to know how the system works.

Once it passes in the House to goes to the Senate. Many say it will never fly there. Hope is that it goes to a conference.

My main bitch on this, and it really should be everyone's bitch, is that the democrats have refused to come to the table with ideas or amendments on how it fix the ACA even after they have said they need to fix it. This should not be about a political party, but the health of those that live here. Both sides have good ideas. So why not give the people something they can really use and not something that shafts them.

Even President Obama said the ACA need to be fixed and Bill Clinton called it the craziest thing he has ever seen. Yup he tried to walk it back but why he made the statement is very true.

It is time for both sides to sit down and do what is right for all of us.

The next good idea on Healthcare from the GOP will be the first one. Unless you are a 1%er, you are FUCKED.

That's bullfuckingshit and you know it.

The democrats came with idea after idea to make changes to Obamacare. It was the republican controlled congress that refused to let any of them come to the floor. The only Helathcare proposals that the republicans would agree to was full repeal.
