    13 Men, and No Women, Are Writing New G.O.P. Health Bill in Senate
    The New York Times
    MAY 8, 2017

    WASHINGTON — The top Republican in the Senate, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, has a reputation as a shrewd tactician and a wily strategist — far more than his younger counterpart in the House, Speaker Paul D. Ryan.

    So the Senate majority leader’s decision to create a 13-man working group on health care, including staunch conservatives and ardent foes of the Affordable Care Act — but no women — has been widely seen on Capitol Hill as a move to placate the right as Congress decides the fate of President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement.

    Beyond neglecting Republican women, Senate Republican leaders overlooked Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, the only black member of their conference. Before his congressional career, Mr. Scott sold insurance and owned one of the most successful Allstate insurance branches in South Carolina.

    Don't forget that, lil jgard, Obama's SIGNATURE achievement is a FAILING healthcare system. A system that is too expensive to use and leaving millions with no healthcare.

    The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
    - John Kenneth Galbraith


    https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/q...t_conservative



    Based on the % of GDP devoted to healthcare, Americans are already been paying for the "Cadillac" of all healthcare systems in the world, only to have it substituted for a "clunker!"

    Every other modern democracy spends far less on healthcare and still manages to provide universal access for all their citizens - alleviating the prospect of facing staggering bills and personal bankruptcy to pay for medical costs.

    Obamacare may not be the final answer, but it has already demonstrated to the American public that they deserve something better what the "fake news" the Republicans have been serving up.

    The American public has finally turned the ideological corner on healthcare - the only real question that remains is whether it will take some form of Obamacare or evolve into a universal system.

    True ... and seriously, anyone stepping into that position would be more competent and less of a danger than what we are currently stuck with.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty

    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Pulled us out of the worst downturn since the great depression. Restored respect for the United States in the rest of the world (and fear of the United States among terrorists, whose leaders he captured or killed in greater numbers than any president before or since).

    And accordingly is highly regarded by Americans generally.

    You've been misled. The Affordable Care Act,for example, was passed by Congress.

    I see where Trump's lack of leadership just botched another attempt at ending Obamacare.

    they don't blame Trump for Obamacare and the failure to change that failing plan. NJo real dilemma, with at least more than 3 years to go.
    Assuming he doesn't get tired of losing, and quit. Or things get dicey with the several criminal investigations and a plea deal is worked out.

    With a Republican White House and GOP majorities in the House and Senate, if "suck it up" is the best that conservatives can offer the American public, then good luck selling that during the 2018 Interims!
