My favorite blogger, in today's parlance is Neil Macdonald of the CBC. He was the CBC's Washington correspondent for a few years but he is now back home and more concentrating on Canadian subjects. But he took a look at Trumpdon'tcare yesterday. Some good bits in it, one in particular:
Trumpcare will see some Americans lose health coverage because... 'freedom': Neil Macdonald - CBC News | Opinion... Under Trumpcare, which is all about freedom, people will be free to buy no insurance. They will also be free not to be able to afford insurance. Because, well, liberty.
But anyone who has insurance and lets his or her coverage lapse, for any reason (even losing a job) shall face a 30 per cent premium increase if that person tries to renew.
Trumpcare actually directs insurance companies to tack on the big surcharge, not that they need convincing.
This way, the government shifts the job of penalizing from the IRS to the insurance companies, thereby replacing slavery with liberty. If it's government screwing you, like Obama did, that's socialism. If it's a corporation screwing you, and profiting in the process, well, that's the American way. Freedom. ...

North Carolinian*John Thompson, "a*pro-life, evangelical Christian and a Republican voter for 28 years:"
[Cancer]*has no party affiliation. It struck Thompson after he lost his job and his insurance in 2013. As he fought cancer and worked to find another job, the GOP leadership in the General Assembly slashed his unemployment benefits.
“Obamacare saved my life,” Thompson said at a “Save My Care” rally in Greensboro on Wednesday.
Thompson said he feels betrayed by the party he has supported for most of his life.
“For 40 years, I paid my taxes, worked to support my family, gave to my church, and I contributed to my community,” Thompson said. “But in my hour of need, when my back was against the wall, in the richest country in the history of the universe, where was the GOP for me? If it was up to those guys, and they could have done to Obamacare then what they’re getting ready to do to it now, shoot, I’d probably be laying dead in a ditch somewhere today.”
You should really get your facts straight before spouting off like that and making a fool of yourself.
