You forget. obamacare was going to leave 30,000,000+ uninsured...

When we talk about the Affordable Care Act, we mostly focus on the millions of Americans who will gain health insurance coverage. We talk less about the millions who will remain uninsured.

And there are a lot of them: 30 million Americans will not have coverage under Obamacare, according to a new analysis in the journal Health Affairs
in 2008 under Bush care.. only 28 million were uninsured.


So according to Pelosi 12,000,000 MORE PEOPLE will be insured thanks to Trump once it is fully implemented.

A smart person would realize what that means.

You, of course, don't.

18 million people on top of the 30 million uninsured.


Many millions will lose their insurance if the present GOP legislation passes.



In 2008, there were more than 46 million without coverage.

That data comes from page 23 of this document: https://www.census.gov/prod/2010pubs/p60-238.pdf

Yeah, but Clinton and her un-secrured e-mail server. Thanks for helping dodge that bullet.

Nothing can explain the upside down "logic" of backwards people, but that they are backwards, not to mention hypocrites, purely partisan and divisive. They don't care about human values or virtues, they care about greedy and making the greedy wealthy wealthier, even at their own expense, because ONCE MORE, they have elected greed wealthy self-serving bastards who conned them into believe what was good for them was bad.

In their world, when you want to go out and buy something new and expensive, you cut the income needed to pay for it. Like going out, buying a new and bigger house, then paying for it by going to your employer and telling them to cut your pay.

That U.S. health care was unsustainable before reform was NEVER a partisan issue, but for all the agreement that it was going to tank without reform, neo republicans NEVER came up with a comprehensive plan and for all the years they bashed "Obamacare" and had time to come up with a comprehensive plan of their own, they never did. Now their plan is all about tearing down a plan that people got off the pot on and did something and "replacing" it, with crap that was never thought out, but for how it could self-serve, the already greedy wealthy.

Bernie Sanders should introduce a well publicized bill to Congress that says that members of Congress will lose their own taxpayer funded health care benefits, UNLESS they come up with a workable health care plan that covers any and all eligible Americans within a year and a half. Congress will never go for it and it should be well publicized why, as well as all the Pacs, Super Pacs and 501 (c) 3 & 4 orgs that donate to members of Congress. Yeah there are rules about stealing documents and publishing them, but if someone can actually suggest citizens of a foreign nation seek out documents to steal to then sell to the "enemies of the American people", press and be elected President after doing so, what do "rules" mean anymore. It has become a free-for-all and if cheating is OK, let's all cheat, lie and steal. Why not, the Trump cabal wants less rules, less oversight, less government, less "political correctness", so let's all be selfish self serving bastards. It will "make America "great" again", no? Do-si-do to the right and screw your partner (fellow American).

While it was not OK for Hillary Clinton to use an unsecure private e-mail server, the Trump administration, by their actions, have thrown pretty much any ethical or more formal rules out the window, AFTER they got elected based on HRC doing what they claimed was illegal, ("lock her up"). Now they flagrantly deny unethical, perhaps even unpatriot illegal conflict of interest and other behavior and even try to block any attempts at investigations, much less independent ones. There are no values left in this neo republican party, only partisanship and greedy self-serving of the already wealthy.

The lame excuse that "libs" did it too, does not wash, for if someone else doing it too, was some sort of honest, fair and just value/virtue, then there would be no reason to object when someone else did "it" and no reason to reject what they did.

The hypocrisy of those who set the expectation that they are "the best" or "better at everything" or "religious" or "Christian", is blatant and shameful and what they are doing is total BS as a means to find those stupid enough and foolish enough to fall for it.

Those that are falling for it will thank those who just picked their pocket, then blame someone else for picking their pocket and if they are not the ones falling for it, they are the pickpockets, conning people in to believing they are helping them, by picking their pockets. There is NOTHING about Trump and his life history to make ANYONE trust that he would EVER put anyone, but himself first, when it comes to anything, including his spouses and perhaps even his entire nation, when it comes to conflicts of interest or his propensity for grabbing women (who are not his wife) where they do not give him permission (he permits himself) to grab, that may have put him in a HUGE compromising position, with and by those that know his self-serving ego would sell out anyone, just as he did with his former spouses. in order to save his own fat ass (pardon my French) .

There have always been double standards in this nation and hypocrisy, but never so blatant and unchallenged. America should be not only embarrassed to be stooping to such lows of humanity, but disgusted to see that so many Americans support stooping so low.
