Had another surgery to clear out the infection. Just....a lot.

That's one of the things about medical issues. While yes, sometimes people make poor choices and it affects their health, there are plenty of circumstances where it has nothing to do with being irresponsible. It's just a part of being alive.

They can be truly trying to live within their means....not buying too much, making wise choices, saving up, etc. What happens when they manage to rack up huge medical bills, as is very easy to do? Not all jobs offer good insurance, or any at all. If you run your own business, it can be hard to get decent insurance.

It's a mess.
It is, indeed, a mess.

Affordable?....ROTFLMAO Oh and by the way the democrats run the House and if a replacement or an improvement in Health care why haven't they put something up? Too busy with stupid impeachment maybe?

He has no environmental policy other than to dismantle protection for the sake of the big environmental offenders bottom line.

Evidence?

He lied to his fans about the Mexican paid for wall over and over again.

Are you sure about that statement? If the wall was built and illegal aliens were keep out it would save about $130 billion a year in educational and health care cost. Unlike the democrats who want health care for all including illegal aliens which would increase that cost to billions more.

No infrastructure bill.

Again any infrastructure bill has to come from the democratic controlled House.

No negotiating for cheaper Rx drug prices.

That is a lie...

The White House is writing an executive order that would reduce what the U.S. pays for drugs so that it's more in line with the lowest price paid elsewhere in the world, Trump told reporters Friday. "As you know, for years and years other nations paid less for drugs than we do," Trump said Friday at the White House. "Sometimes by 60-70%. We’re working on it right now, we’re working on a favored nations clause, where we pay whatever the lowest nation’s price is. Why should other nations — like Canada — but why should other nations pay much less than us? They’ve taken advantage of the system for a long time, Pharma."

Draining the swamp was actually the involuntary draining of his swamp and it's still filled with filth. His tax cut for the rich was surely achieved.
The so called tax cuts for the rich is a means to create jobs...well done President Trump.

His hate-and fear mongering is only the distraction it is designed to be. My five year old nephew is too smart to fall for his giant con job smoke and mirror show. How do grown-ups buy into this?

Are you done ranting?

You do but now you have to prove that full payment is going to be more than you have to pay for health care now.

Ah, I see. I was just corroborating that employers don't just pocket it since you have to pay that part too if you're on your own. Been there done that.

The Dems simply don't like his policies--they're not pulling out their hair and chasing people out of restaurants for lack of Trump's policies.

As a matter of fact, 3000 federal prisoners were just released today, thanks to Trump's signing of the First Step Act which, among other things, reforms federal mandatory sentencing to allow judges discretion in that area.

Liberal clowns are so amusing! And uninformed.

That's substantially different from "Mexico will pay for it" - and you know it.

He has no policies. He has empty rhetoric. If he was actually fighting for something, you can counter, debate and compromise that.

There isn't much you can do with empty words.
