    You are glad that the party you both voted for can't pass their legislative agenda on healthcare because it was done in secret, and it basically sucks arse?

    So, what would you want in a healthcare bill? What -in general- do you think it should do?

    Oh, and if it passes, and it still could, what will do you about it?

    I'm glad poor little Mitch had government assistance in his time of need.

    I was laughing so hard when I read that a couple of days ago.

    And there's another company that's laying-off instead of creating more jobs which Trump boasted about -- can't remember which though.

    Pretty much the repeat from when Dems were blocking, you mean.

    You accuse one side of whining when the others did exactly the same. It's like a neverending circle of memory-loss.

This alone is a pretty good indicator that whatever comes out won't be acceptable.
    You're going to loose in all instances.

    Because protesters wouldn't move on their own... or perhaps Mitchie felt threatened with all those pre-existing conditions and/or disabilities clogging up his hallway. Or you know, seeing all the people his precious healthcare will kill.

    And yet when the Democrats forced the Obama Health Care Bill on to everyone they made sure they EXEMPTED themselves from it.

    Funny that what!?

    The more I learn about the Senate plan, the more acceptable it seems to be.

    I gather that it preserves the ban on pre-existing conditions being used to raise rates or deny coverage, unlike the house bill which does not. It also allows students to stay on their parents policy till age 26.

    There are still some unanswered questions, but the biggest problem is that it needs to be examined over a period of weeks or months to see what it actually does, rather than shoved through before the 4th of July.
