Medical bills bankrupt many people because they can get into the hundreds of thousands or millions. It's all a mess and something needs to change. I am not sure of the best way, but the answer isn't "Who cares, pay for your own problems" when the costs are unreasonable even for fiscally responsible people.
Yup. I have a trust fund plus a job where I get six figures a year. I pay for me.

Other people medical bills are not my problem. Therefore they pay for their own stuff.

Yes I do. And I have no health insurance.

Still other people’s misfortune is not my problem.

I supported little to nothing that Obama did so I do not know why you think this is a valid rebuttal. All the same, be honest in your condemnation.

The money was Irans to start with, the problem was Obama not having the cajones to do it in the light of day. Few condemned Obama's war mongering more than I.

Now do you have an actual point?

Since you won't educate yourself, looks like it's time for another Old Gringo schoolin' session.


First of all, former President Barack Obama didn’t give “150 billion in cash” to Iran.
The nuclear agreement included China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union, so Obama didn’t carry out any part of it on his own. The deal did lift some sanctions, which lifted a freeze on Iran’s assets that were held largely in foreign, not U.S., banks. And, to be clear, the money that was unfrozen belonged to Iran. It had only been made inaccessible by sanctions aimed at crippling the country’s nuclear program.
Secondly, $150 billion is a high-end estimate of the total that was freed up after some sanctions were lifted. U.S. Treasury Department estimates put the number at about $50 billion in “usable liquid assets,” according to 2015 testimony from Adam Szubin, acting under secretary of treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence.

You can't ignore facts and expect people to take your questions seriously.

It's certainly possible that the few companies still providing a good health care plan may see their costs go down some as the costs get spread wider, but that is perfectly fine.
Oh, so the plan is to **** the little guy so the greedy multinational corporation that employs him/her can get something for nothing!

Trump policies

Economic prosperity/Job creation - Tax Cuts, Less onerous Regulation, Pro business attitude, historically LOW UNEMPLOYMENT.

Trade - Strike better trade deals with our trade partners to level the playing field and create more jobs in the U.S.

Energy - Allow the extraction of U.S. domestic fossil fuels. Its working the U.S. is the largest oil producer, and net energy exporter. World energy prices are LOW due to increase supply.

Border Security - Promote measures to secure border and reduce the invasion of ILLEGAL ALIENS whom are draining U.S. resources.

National Defense - Strong military to keep us secure.

Just a few off the top of my head. Trump's policies are working. The OP suffers from extreme delusional behavior, and can not ignore the above so must attempt to deceive (lie).

No. He's so busy thinking about or reacting to how he is being treated , complaining, defending, Tweeting, watching TV, touting how great he is, having rallies or going golfing, that he doesn't have time for his job or even think about doing something for the betterment of the country.
