Not everybody is lucky enough to have a job that offers health insurance. Especially if you have to work two or three part-time jobs. I had health insurance with my job. I couldn't afford to cover my husband on my policy.

I ask again: where. is. the. plan?
You are absolutely correct, no one ever said Obamacare was perfect, it was a starting point. It helped some people and hurt others, but overall it wasn't all that bad. The correct thing to do would have been for both sides to get their heads together and start tweaking it a little over time. But nooooooooo, politics had to come before looking out for the welfare of Americans who needed a good healthcare plan.

All Trump wanted to do was erase any memory of Obama, just to get even with him. Just like why he passed that law that you and I can not freely travel to Cuba......there was NO reason to do that, and if Trump had a hotel there you can bet that law wouldn't have happened.

Millions of people had health coverage under Obamacare for the first time, and that can't be all bad.

Heck yes. We haven't had cancer patients being denied care based on seeking treatment for acne in, like, years!

Freakin' freeloaders, expecting their insurance to pay.

LOL...he suggested a few things....

what he should have said is that he would be watching TV most of the day, complaining, Tweeting, criticizing others, vacationing and golfing each weekend, holding ralli..er...gripe-a-thons, faking it, creating chaos, exaggerating, defending, telling big lies.

No, you didn't miss anything.. he's been busy being him.

Ask McCain where it is! He is the same jealous dirtbag who ran the dossier to the FBI! He intentionally sunk any reform. He did it on purpose.
