    I actually don't know of any state that didn't have an insurance company in the game before obamacare, maybe some rural areas. I know in my state we only have one major and about 3 minor players. Two of the biggest pulled completely out for 2017 and 18.

    People who want or need the major medical plans will still find a way to purchase and if the companies get some of their scaled-down plans approved by their respective state's office of insurance regulation some will purchase them. Most will still have some form of health insurance.

    How have Democrats convinced themselves that shoveling money to corporations is the way to help "We the People"? I thought trickle-down was a Republican thing.

    Funny, that's not what other Republicans say. This is why your kind come across as the most ignorant people on earth.

    CNN panel: Trump voters say they're ‘scared’ on healthcare

    "I was wrong," she (Jackie) said.

    "I have loved ones that have chronic conditions that are functioning now because of the medications they're on and because of the medical care they receive, because I have health insurance," she added. "I'm scared.

    "He promised something better," Byrd said. "And what I've seen come off the block is not better. It's scary to me."

    In Kentucky, a Trump stronghold, many fear losing Obamacare

    “We're seeing that it's a political war over health care and the collateral damage is the patient's health and life and the quality of life,” Breeding said. “Change the name if ‘Obamacare’ is offensive to Republicans, change the name, and call it what you will, but provide these people who are desperate, and I mean desperate, desperate for some type of health care.”

    Taylor said the health insurance he has under ACA not only saved his life, but also helped his brother-in-law and his former coworkers.

    “It’s a good thing to have it. The insurance,” he said.

    Anxiety spreads over GOP health plan for those with severe illnesses

    ---------------------------------

    Starting next year it all changes. So if you are a Republican and you have an illness, get your affairs in order. Because next year might be your last. And if you ARE sick, your leadership, the people you voted into office, have a word for you. Fuked. Cuz that's what you are. Fuked. The GOP leadership has more important people to take care of. And it's not you.

    Graham: 'Financial contributions will stop' if GOP doesn't pass tax reform

    House Republican: my donors told me to pass the tax bill "or don’t ever call me again"

    How do the fools think those tax cuts will be paid for?

    Clearly, the answer is "over their dead bodies".

    No there wasn't. Not in rural areas.
    And if they did sell 50 dollar insurance, what you got was worth 5.
