    This is yet another example of how pathetic the Republican Party has become. Trump was already this pathetic.

    Ending the mandate will cause 13 million to no longer be insured. The Republicans will save the money that would be spent on health insurance subsidies. Where do they think these people will get healthcare? Using the system without paying. More children on CHIP ( If Republicans decide to renew it at current levels). Who pays for that? We do.

    Trump & the Republicans want to save money by reducing the number signing up for health insurance on the exchanges.

    Chickenfuck Trump cut the enrollment period & reduced the outreach to help people get insurance. The same practice these pathetic assholes use to depress the vote.

    Republicans keep to their traditions: Keep handing rich people & corporations money & making the middle class pay for it.

    Ryan said SS, Medicare & Medicaid is next. After adding a trillion to the deficit, they will cry about debt & blame it on these programs.

    The fact is that Republicans suck big slimy moose dick.,

    Senate Republicans have proposed eliminating the ACA’s requirement that all Americans have health insurance or pay a penalty. By getting rid of this, the CBO estimates 13 million fewer people would have insurance a decade from now.

    Like 8M people or so lost their insurance because it didnt meet the lobbyists requirements. Who needs a small guy or local business when you can have monopolies?

    What an IDIOT.........eliminate the mandate, and the money for subsidies will NOT be there....

    Eliminate the subsidies and MILLIONS of people cannot purchase anything.....

    Your ilk will have to live with the anger of those without HC insurance......Sure, go for it and see what happens.

    What I found sad is that the Democrats nominated somebody more pathetic than Trump. Hillary had no message, at least none that had any wide appeal across the country. Just as I felt during Obama's administration, elections have consequences. But not to worry. Things will swing back the other way eventually and the partisans on the other side will have their turn bellyaching.
