    By the way....the sheer irony in this "debate" is that Obamacare actually is the more 'conservative' (small 'c'...not a capital 'C') approach because it actually uses different mechanisms to control health care costs. Your plan (or anything put forth by Republicans or Trump) are far more reckless and do absolutely nothing to control costs long term. There is a reason why the framework for Obamacare actually originated from Republicans in the 90's......it was then called a "free market" approach to health care as a counter to a single payer system.

    Everything you believe now is just political gobbledygook......you'd much rather look for funny memes rather than discuss the actual issue at hand.

    God bless America?

    Great post.....but, to these people it simply doesn't matter. I mean, my God, we spent several hours trying to explain how health care works to a few of these people yesterday and they REFUSE to listen. I am not being hyperbolic when I say the new version of Republican is no different than a cult....I've never seen a mass of people continue to argue the illogical viewpoint of things; just because that is what their leaders tell them to believe.

    It's sad and scary for our country.

    /——/ Yeah that’s why it flopped miserably. We need free markets and tort reform.

    /——/ Yes, anyone who disagrees with you is illogical. No other possible explanation.

    If giving money to the rich didn't work, the only thing you CAN do is give them more money.

    You're one of those who won't read anything which contradicts the narrative you've been fed and considered it rationally. That's what the R's exploit, for they support profit over people.
