unpaid in McAllen because everybody in the community--including you-- kicks in
money everytime somebody needs medical care. Correct?
GOP has had 8 years under Obama and another six month with Trump and they have
no clue what they're doing.They've told us for all that
time how bad Obamacare is, yet they have nothing better to offer. They're the joke, but we Americans are the punch line.To
quote our articulate President: 'sad'.
LOU Montana,Everyone in our country have the ability to succeed. We
play by the same rules.Why should honor roll students be forced to

extreme cases, but you'll be surprised how a community will come together

responsibility to thieving self gratifying politicians is not the way of doing
Politics make strange bedfellows... so if Paul and 2-3 other similarly minded
Senators will vote no, I'm for them... and unless there's a major
defection from the Democrats, that would be a sufficient 'no'
coalition to dispatch McConnell's homunculus bill to the waste bin.
Sen. Rand Paul: "And I think Republicans will be very unhappy across the
land if the Republican leadership gives up and goes and works with the
Democrats."There you have it folks. Gridlock over cooperation.
No shame in stating it. And we keep re-electing them - for nothing.

Okay, let's see if we can figure this out.After 8 years of
telling us that if the GOP could just take over Congress, they would immediately
pass the bill they had all ready to go -- we discover they really had
nothing.Lie #1After campaigning on a promise to Repeal
and Replace ACA on his First Day In Office, Donald now tells us it's the
fault of Congress.Lie #2Now they tell us that this bill
will make care affordable for everyone and that it will be fair to everyone.Lie #3So now they are working on a bill to replace the bill
to replace ACA with another bill to replace the first bill to replace ACA with
yet another bill to replace the one they tried to pass before after they had to
replace the first one with a second one because the first replacement
didn't really do a good job of replacing anything.Oh. Now I
One can only imagine what new horrors lie hidden in this secretly negotiated
bill.Like Judas, you got to wonder what pieces of silver he will be
offering wavering Senators to pass this obscene bill. It will still
enrich the already wealthy to the deficit of the eternally poor.(And
snarkily I say), what imput did the Russians have on the GOP to get this bill
Worf, you sure don't mind paying taxes for the rich. Providing
healthcare for our people should be the very least of our concerns. GWBush's wars for oil could have paid for healthcare for this nation for
the next two hundred years. I would rather see my tax dollars go the
people who need healthcare than pay for the tax breaks of the rich.
Wait wait let me guess: Handouts to special interestsTax cuts to
millionairesand less coverage for the working poor.Heaven
forbid they reach across the aisle and achieve meaningful legislation.
New health bill? Wasn't trump supposed to have this wrapped up back in
January? Wasn't health care supposed to be fixed somewhere in the past 8 or
so years? They did have a shovel ready health care plan, didn't they? Do these, our champions, really have our best interests in mind? The
only people we're willing to elect to lead us despise the only health care
system that will save us. They're heading for the rabbit hole.
We're pushing them in. Guess where we're going?
Still secret negotiations
The best health bill, is NO health bill.Why should anyone be
entitled to another persons money? Why are we entrusting politicians
to manage our hard earned money? Their honesty should be questioned!
