    Well, Republicans have had the chance since Trump became president. They control the entire government.

    And what did they do? End subsidies so next year millions of Trump voters will no longer have healthcare. Let them die. The GOP healthcare plan.

    And they are still trying to blame Obama when those dirty fukkers do nothing.

    You know, I have a plan in place if/when I ever reach that stage. A very simple prescription....

    1 - .45 caliber, 240 grain copper coated lead injection at 1100 feet per second. To be injected vertically from under the chin, with a slight rearward cant. - 100% effective in "curing" whatever ails you, permanently.

    I kind of enjoy watching your society come apart at the seams on the news every evening. Sort of like watching the impending/ongoing train wreck you know can't be stopped.

    That’s what happens when the GOP destroyed the mandate.

    But drug prices went up because baby bush made a deal with the pharmaceutical companies.
