    Not according to this article and others. All you have left is your pretense.

    Republicans will be smart to repeal it without repealing it. Defund it, rebuild it to what it should have been in the first place, then the catastrophe it's been goes away.
    Rebuild it with what ???

    That would be a better system. It would return more jobs hoe than tax cuts would.

    I thought all legislation was buried under mounds of documents in 'legal speak' to hide the pork, waste and unrelated spending?

    I wouldn't care so much if you all didn't want to insist that that those of us who want nothing to do with it, be forced into it anyway.

    Based upon the last election looks to me like the American voter is waking up. Wonder why he still has a 41% JAR
    This is just symbolic of the contempt that most on the elite left have for people who are in lock-step with their group-think - the less "believers" know, the more easily they're manipulated. And you can't argue with proven fact - the average left leaning voters is pretty stupid - there's no other rational explanation.

    Yeah. Kinda like Zombies.
    About as smart a Zombies too, come to think of it.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    I envision a two tired system, as those who can afford more will never be told they can't spend more in the US.
