    President Trump has been in office just over a year. And he's dealt with fierce opposition to everything he has wanted done. He's doing a fine job.

    As the person who started this thread, I can tell you unequivocally that it has absolutely nothing at all to do with Trump.

    Best to pray that Jesus will cure your sins. Might not actually work, but at least it's free.

    There you have it: A perfect example of why medical care in the USA costs double and triple what it costs other nations. Just thought you might want to know.

    And this is why Trump is trying to Fix the Obamacare FUBAR, no wonder Drug Companies put billions into getting PACA passed

    If the life expectancy went down due to a change in the health care law,
    And if nations with universal health care have longer life expectancy than does the United States, the only nation without universal health care,
    then it follows that initiating UHC in the United States would increase out life expectancy.
    And, the money saved by not having our current system that allows for unscrupulous people to corner the market on a life saving drug and increase the price by 100,000% would have to be applied to Social Security to accommodate longer lived citizens.
