The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

It even included a Medicare vouchering system similar to Paul Ryan’s proposal; something ACA doesn’t have.
This of course doesn’t even touch on the notion that you’re referencing a single instance TWENTY YEARS OLD that ignores the fact that individuals beliefs, views, ideas, and solutions can be impacted by the context of the time and situation one is living in. For example, the notion that emergency rooms must treat anyone that comes is a common notion today, a simple fact of life. In ’89, this was a new legislative reality and people on all sides were spitballing in a reactionary manner. Still, even ignoring the glaring contextual differences (and even some significantly policy difference) the only thing you really have is that both mandate health insurance in some fashion or to some degree.
Claiming that the ACA was “Conceived” by the Heritage Foundation because it has some similar provisions is akin to saying the David Bowie “Conceived” Ice Ice Baby because they included the same hook. Perhaps if you spent half as much time as you devote to desperately rushing to criticize Republicans on actually researching the things you’re going to say you’d possibly have seen that.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
the heritage foundation/conservative think tanks espoused a system based on mandated insurance coverage, rather than a single payer system as used by other industrialized nations
the connection is obvious to anyone who chooses to see it
And abortion is a procedure. There are a couple of bc methods that require minor procedures to insert them but those would be out of necessity because other methods didnt work for that woman and the doctor would prescribe it.
Besides, the LAST thing I want discouraged is vasectomies.
