    and everything that goes with it. They have 22 seats and that is why they are chickenshit to do it now, as the ACA is popular even with Republicans.

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

    The U.S. Senate has 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats (including two independents). There are 34 seats up in 2020 - including a special election in Arizona - of which 22 are held by the GOP. Democrats will need to gain 3 or 4 seats to take control.

    and

    But the 2020 map is seen as more challenging, and many in the GOP can’t understand why Trump would plunge them into a fight over health care just as he was surfing a wave of good news brought by the end of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

    “It doesn’t seem to make sense politically,” said one Republican senator, who questioned why Trump would give Democrats a new avenue of attack.

    Another Republican senator said, “We would be crazy to try to go through what we went through again,” referring to the failed 2017 effort to repeal ObamaCare, which fell one vote short in the Senate.

    A third Republican senator expressed hope that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will join House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in pressing Trump to back off his aggressive push to defeat the 2010 health care law in court.

    In 2017:

    Nancy Pelosi: "We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it."

    In 2020:

    Nancy Pelosi:"We still have to pass the bill to find out what's in it."

    Huh?

    Meat puppet faggot care is as good as repealed.

    It's going to be ruled unconstitutional as it should have been to begin with, but it's at least no longer allowing the government to steal thousands of dollars from people who don't want to pay for something they don't need or want, thanks to Trump.

    Hopefully the DNC gets trounced again like they did in 2010 for passing that legislative abortion in the first place.

    On NBC News’ Meet the Press Sunday morning, host David Gregory resurrected a favorite right-wing attack on the Affordable Care Act, asking House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to defend her 2010 comment that

    “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.” (by the Republicans no less.)

    Oh you didn't keep your doctor, he probably died, moved or retired. But I'm glad you admit I was right in the OP. Or perhaps you never had a doctor.

    No one has kept their plans and few have retained their doctor....after 20 years of seeing the same doctor I lost him...he decided to go with a different ins company that excluded hundreds of his long time patients...he granted me one last appointment and so I asked what was up...he said if it weren't for the ACA he would still be my doctor....so give it up Pene....your boy fucked us all....and he did it on purpose....

    Of course it's "controversial", Penelope! When you're making sweeping changes to something that affects 1/6th of our economy but nobody knows what's in your bill...OF COURSE THAT'S GOING TO CAUSE CONTROVERSY!!!

    It was a ridiculous statement by Pelosi when she made it...and you just come across as clueless when you try and put it into a context where it's NOT ridiculous!
