    Yeah...I am not so naive anymore to believe that. Obama had years to tweak the ACA to ease the burden off the middle class. It didn't happen. Democrats are elitist's now with a compassion for a select few "feel good" initiatives. They could care less about the middle class. Now, we have Trumpcare to look forward to. It is a disgrace. My tax dollars do not pay for sympathy..I would prefer them to do their job.

    yeah. I think there are many with that attitude. we don't care what party you belong to - just get the job done to benefit the citizens. after all, we pay for your wages and benefits out of our tax money. a return on investment is what we expect.

    Lets just ignore the fact that Republicans spent the last 6 years blocking Obama from doing a single thing legislatively and fought him in court on all of his EO's that tried to help the ACA. The bottom line is that with Republicans in power you have absolutely no hope of any improvement for the middle class and can expect massive cuts to help for the poor and working class. Remember, Reagan cut taxes massively for the 1% and raised taxes on the rest of us 11 times....

    Figure out a way to pay for it, which Obamacare didn't, and we will cover everyone.
    The money tree is top heavy.

    Obama asked for help from the GOP and they didn't want to help, just to repeal

    McConnel has also said he wants no Democratic input on the Republican version of Trumpcare.

    Drain the swamp. Fight the establishment. Power to the people.

    Great, great healthcare. For cheaper than ever.

    The very famous golfer Bernhard Langer was talking to me last week, never, sometime when he was actually talking to someone else, and my law firm, very large, very prestigious law firm.

    He could have lifted the mandates...such as the employer 28 hour, Cadillac Tax, and really evaluate the mandates for insurance. You can't force people to purchase insurance if they cannot afford it. I am sure the GOP would have relaxed on those mandates.

    What is the CBO basing it on. Sounds like the CBO is as wrong here as they were on Obamacare. I show proof and you spew democrat lies. Obamacare was nothing but lies
