    How would THEY get everyone healthcare, or will they admit they're happy for people to be killed without it?

    All their party has actually DONE is to try to repeal Democratic programs, to leave tens of millions more without healthcare.

    So, what's their solution?
    I given my solution many times on DP (and I'm a Republican).

    SIAP by someone else.
    Revert health care back to what it was before ACA, let it be employer funded, and place those folks who are unemployed and uninsurable into a gov't health care system like Medicaid. Drawbacks would be added cost to the federal government and convincing businesses to take over health care again.

    I can assume you were against Trumps great health care replacement for the ACA. Perhaps Trump is s socialist eh ?
    Amendment 10. " The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States"

    IMO all government subsidies fall in that category.

    I was referring to labor, not physical buildings.

    Bye. Bye. ACA is an attempt to force everyone into a gov't run, crappy, healthcare system. That's not necessary.

    Tens of millions don't have healthcare because they can't afford it. That's not solving the problem of everyone having healthcare. So, admit you don't want tens of millions to have healthcare?

    Not true. No one is denied healthcare.

    It's not whether or not I want tens of millions to have healthcare. The question is which tens of millions you want to pay for yours.

    You would be correct unless there were an amendment passed to The Constitution stating the federal government should provide healthcare.
    There isn't one, so, how did SCOTUS justify ACA? They designated ACA a tax.

    The feds finance the vast majority of medical training in this country. Fewer federal dollars means fewer residency slots means fewer new physicians.

    A primarily employer-based system with federal subsidies, primarily via expanded Medicaid coverage, available to those who don’t have access to ESI is exactly the system we have right now under the ACA. Nearly 160 million people have insurance through their job right now.

    If memory serves, this was after Obama had declared that OCare was not a tax.
