    Because we in the USA foot the bill for the rest of the world. That's why.

    Wrong. I have many friends that retired with a good pension who are going back to work because healthcare costs are enormous. Yes people go back to work for lots of reasons but the biggest reason I'm seeing is healthcare costs.

    Obama hasn't been president for over a year.

    Republicans and Trump have been working on Healthcare.

    How did they FIX it?

    It's like we're on a train, headed toward a washed out bridge over a canyon. And everyone is arguing over what we should do. Two factions have formed. Some of the people don't see a problem. The train's running great, it's a beautiful day, what could go wrong? The other side wants to speed up.

    Meanwhile, the brakeman is reading porno.

    Republicans should fix this. Remember all their great ideas in the primaries?

    You remember they were gonna let insurance companies cross state lines and competition was going to bring costs down. Well? Do it!
