And everybody else says they'll die before they reach the floor.

Ah, the Republicans. The party that knows how to win elections but doesn't have a clue on how to govern. All those years they had as the majority, plenty of time to come up with alternative proposals, test them out, talk about them at town hall meetings -- yeah, should have been a penalty kick inside the box for them.

But NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....turns out the Republicans in Congress know how to obstruct legislation and block nominations, but as to actually getting anything done? No way Jose.

Laughs, how many sources do you need to show Trump and his fellow conservatives that Obamacare is not failing? The fact that they claim it is is just the typical propaganda they issue to get the base hyped up. It is true they have exacerbated the issues that Obamacare has, mostly by not being transparent and clear about the governments subsidizing of the markets.

Shame on anyone that claims it is doomed. If it is, it will only be killed thru the hands of the Trump administration.

If premiums keep increasing (here in PA, popular plans got the OK to increase 20% for 2018) on those middle-class folks who aren't poor enough to be subsidized, then doom is indeed in the forecast for a large % of the population.

The Affordable Care Act needs quite a few updates and changes. To be honest, it's really not the best system the US could have, but it is the one that got through Congress. Eventually, we'll have to come up with a replacement, but it needs fixing.

But, you know, just because it would have a major negative impact on millions of families across America really doesn't connect with Republicans in Congress. The poor, they say, deserve to be poor because they make bad choices, and Americans should not be forced to pay for other people's bad choices.

So where do I go for my refund for 2017-21 (hopefully). Because I'm paying for a massive orange-haired mistake right now that 62 million Americans made on Nov. 3, 2016.

There may be a simple system. Expansion of the medicare system for all.

I'm unclear how close it is to single payer but bernie proposed it and many democratic representatives have now signed on.
