While Obamacare is certainly flawed, it gave more people access to healthcare then ever before. Without it, millions more would be left with no insurance. It's not a long term solution, but that's what the right and more specifically, Donald Trump campaigned on. The promise that they would repeal and replace Obamacare and provide great healthcare at lower rates.

A promise that helped them get elected. A promise that they haven't and likely won't fulfill anytime soon. Your party has had years to come up with a replacement and its abundantly clear that Republicans lack organization, leadership, and a unified vision of what healthcare should look like moving forward.

Obama and Dems may be responsible for the current flaws with Obamacare but I assure you they won't be held responsible for the failure of Republicans to repeal and replace it.

As long as it fails and is obsolete...will take chances with the rest. If the old lady on SC would now just step away or pass away it will be fairly productive 4 years.

I honestly don't like Trump but he is doing what is needed right now. In a perfect world a different conservative will replace him next election!

It has never been about finding a workable solution with them.
It's all about the costs Obamacare put on midsized local and regional businesses, who are enormously influential with Republicans and have been squealing bloody death ever since the employer mandates were put in.

To repeat, the Republican party gives precisely 0 ****s about healthcare, other than shedding it's core donor constituency of the part that make them pay for part of it.

Republicans are screwed over Healthcare.

They have run for 8 years on repealing obamacare, then failed and have nothing to replace it.

That is the difference between the dems and us. The dems are true believers in their issues. I think they are wrong about them, but they are true believe. When is the last time you saw a moderate Democrat go against party lines?

Republicans in secure seats with almost guaranteed election, are still willing to go against every principle they claim to support.


Until we remove the entrenched political class, the ones who are there to make themselves richer, the Republican party is on danger of diverging into 2 parties. One that cares about their country, and one that cares about power.

The dems have already sold their soul, there is no reasonable size group of them that can save their party from the corrupt. Maybe we'll be a 3 party system in years to come. The dems and Republicans will split their vote between the elderly, the 3Rd party will be ones that love their country.

But many Republicans on my side are asking why they should ever support the Republican party again. When Rush Limbaugh had been voicing this on his radio station. The entrenched are incredibly stupid to not make a token effort to protect the gravy train they have.

So while this is well said and pretty damn spot on the fallback position is what? Let Hillary win? Let Crying Chuck hold everything up? We had to have a correction, the last 6 months have improved things from the previous band of thieves. It certainly isn't perfect but look at the other side

The thing is, this was a golden ****ing platter for them for them to not only win near term elections, but to secure an actual constituency going forward.

Nuke most of HusseinHealth but bring along that addressed the dysfunctions of the Pre Obamacare era.
Break up the insurance monopolies and allow free market competition.
Add risk-pool funding to Medicaid for medical cost outliers.
Start attacking cost at the funding level of medicare/medicaid. Straight up price fixing. If you're going to deal with the government on medical stuff, you're going to get paid on time but the government is setting the price and no longer are they a big piggy bank. Mandatory Minimum 25 year bid for any medical billing frauds.

The mandates were always a hoax.

Tactical domain acquisition, while dated in the social media age, is nothing new.

OJ shitted up his reputation, Trump had some nexus with him so Trump's counsel bought that domain in case Trump ever had to put out content if he were attacked on that.

He also owns IHateTrumpVodka.com, DonaldTrumpSucks.com, etc.
