    The Congress has been f'ing the American people for decades. At least with the hookers you know what you're getting.

    https://wagingnonviolence.org/featur...mp-resistance/ Last week’s recess offered little respite to the Republican senators supporting the Better Care Reconciliation Act, or BCRA. After the bill failed to gain enough support for a vote before the recess, opponents of the health care reform legislation — which would entail major cuts to Medicaid and the loss of health coverage for roughly 22 million Americans — used the holiday weekend as an opportunity to express their outrage at town hall meetings and public events. When some Republican legislators refused to attend the meetings, activists staged sit-ins at their offices and sought them out at town parades and picnics. One group even sailed a boat outside Sen. Thom Tillis’ vacation house in North Carolina, flying a banner that read “Sink Trumpcare.”
    Not to repeal obamacare is what will hurt Trump. And they definitely won't repeal it.

    He was a nutcase, crooked as hell, but I loved the guy!
    Love him? No. But he was eminently entertaining. I follow politics only because it is entertaining. He was a shining star.

    Indeed. They run the country now and your premise is proved.

    The hurt from the far right because of the non repeal would be far less than that of the enraged tens of millions if it is repealed.

    The 10's of thousands who get subsidized obamacare would be enraged. The 10's of millions hurt by Obamacare would be way, way, way better off. They could go back to buying the kind of insurance they like. No reason for them to be enraged.

    There are tens of millions that have been helped by Obamacare, not tens of thousands. There are also not "10's of millions hurt by Obamacare."

    You have your facts, I have mine. Not to worry, they will be able to keep Obamacare.

    There are only one set of facts and you don't have them

    As the evidence suggests:



    Residents of a poor state, West Virginia, benefits immensely from federal programs: 29% of the population is on Medicaid. The expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare is the main reason the percentage of West Virginians without health insurance has halved since 2013.
