    Health care costs have been skyrocketing for more than half a century.

    In all that time, the GOP has offered NOTHING to correct the problem.

    So it is inevitable we will end up with the plan the Democrats have been offering all that time.


    Just a matter of time now.

    I have asked before, but I don't recall if you responded.

    What would you offer, if you had the opportunity? What should the GOP offer?

    The Republicans have had NINE YEARS to offer an alternative to Obamacare. So far, NOTHING.

    If we repeal Obamacare, we would return to the same skyrocketing costs which caused Obamacare to be created in the first place. The problem of skyrocketing costs would continue unabated.

    Which is why I have been asking since coming to this forum, "Repeal Obamacare...AND THEN WHAT?!?!?"

    This always sends the tards into a rage.

    Yet the tards have STILL not figured out they have been massively hoaxed by Trump and the GOP.


    So...UHC is inevitable. Because all the pseudocons and the GOP can do is whine. They cannot PRODUCE.

    Obamacare is more popular than "do nothing". America does not want Obamacare repealed in favor of what came before.

    And UHC is not as unpopular as the propagandist whiners would have you believe.

    Christ, I've posted at least a hundred times on this forum what the GOP should offer.

    Easily a hundred times.

    Health Insurance Deductibles Up 212 Percent Since 2008: Reason Roundup

    After FY2000 the healthcare expenditures have steadily increased, no matter GOP or democrat admins (graph below). So the bottom line isn't "healthcare costs", but "health insurance costs" (above chart), including premiums and deductibles, as well as pharmaceuticals. IMHO families lost money via Obamacare. Instead of saving $2,500 a year, we got hammered with $10,000 deductibles!! So WTF are we paying healthcare insurance premiums for?
