    Well, as a proponent of socialized healthcare, I didn't like Obamacare either. But I can't imagine the Republicans doing anything other than trying to fuck people over.

    The best way for people to sort themselves out is to buy international healthcare insurance. It can be had for like $120 a month. If you get ill, then you can just go off to the UK, or Australia (Canada and the US are more expensive), and then you'll get much cheaper healthcare. The flight ticket to the UK will cost like $500 return. You'll have saved that money within a year.

    You'd be smart too, and there must be plenty of smart people in Somalia, they don't really get the choice of where they are born though, and many of them are dead, many of them are scratching a living and surviving. Do you know why? Because the govt isn't there.

    You think you don't rely on the govt, but the reality is, the govt has given you far more than you'd care to admit.

    The new GOP plan that the House just passed is downright embarrassing, it is so bad. I expect the Senate to throw it away, and start from scratch.

    We need to start calling this latest one Trumpcare-2.

    That way we won't confuse it with Trumpcare-1.

    And also the Senate is about to come up with yet another -- Trumpcare-3.

    So there is going to be more of them -- like flies on sh!t.

    Oh, I'm very well aware just how far reaching into our lives our government is. Much of the time that is not a positive but a negative. The government has been grooming people for years to be dependants. That's not what we're supposed to be about.

    No one has the choice of where you're born.

    Not like the positive absence of government in Somalia, eh?

    Tsk, language. But I'd have thought Somalia your dream destination considering its lack of government involvement in residents' lives. Strange you're not more enamoured of it.
