    The GOP spent 8 years running monolithically on repealing the scourge of the American healthcare system, the Affordable Care Act, with its dreaded “death panels.” But now, fueled by a DOJ decision not to defend the law in court in a lawsuit, the GOP is approaching an even money bet that they finally get their wish. And instead of celebrating, the GOP is freaking out like a teen whose parents return home early to a toga party in the living room.

    That was back in March, when the lawsuit was still widely seen as a long shot Hail Mary pass. But now, with the suit apparently steaming towards a showdown in the Supreme Court, with the reel specter that “Brewski” Brett Kavanaugh may finally pay dividends, the GOP is in a panic. Up until now, on more “socially” related issues, Chief Justice John Roberts has reluctantly sided with the liberals on the court, providing a speed brake on Kavanaugh. But on this issue, which could be repaired legislatively, it is possible that Roberts may finally decide to let Trump pay the piper for his craven stupidity.

    Careful what you wish for, boys.

    I wish for the healthcare system before Obamacare totally fucked it up.
    I paid premiums, then went to the doctor for free. Now with Obamacare, we pay premiums AND a $10,000 deductible.
    So WTF am I paying premiums for? Its extortion.
    The sooner the USSC kills Obamacare the better. You want healthcare, work for it and pay the premiums.

    p.s. any link that has 20 typos in the article loses all credibility....

    Bingo you put your finger right on one of the key frauds of the ACA. Deductibles have gotten so high that there's really no difference to having no insurance for many Americans. How many people can come up with $10 thousand for treating an illness? From what I've read, the majority of Americans cannot. BUT HEY Thanks for that $2500 dollar a year SAVINGS Obama!

    What Republicans should be worried about is their jobs IF they do something stupid and try to replace, “correct” or otherwise allow the ACA to continue its existence. They will already have to answer for why it wasn’t dissolved on 1/22/2017. They shouldn’t further excite those of us on the Right.... unless they really enjoy having a Primary opponent.

    All depends on your state, and if you picked a bronze plan. I have never know to be in a health ins plan and go to the doctor for free.

    its simple-

    Republicans had 8 years before Trump to come up with a healthcare plan, and going on 4 years under Trump - what have they come up with ?

    a never gonna happen WALL, a lard ass president that salutes fucking communist dictators.

    what did the American people get in return ?

    tax cuts for the top 1% - a record deficit AND record National Debt, with a $103 million dollar golf debt for the cherry on top.

    There is a sizable element within the GOP that is irate at the idea of ANY public healthcare program

    Republicans will never agree to one
