    And after 'Trumpcare' I suppose it will be named after whatever jackass takes over next. Shouldn't we just call it Government Care, and accept the fact that our health care is now up for grabs with every damned election?

    I'm surprised we don't hear more about the loophole in ACA's individual mandate. Democrats bragged about it quite a bit when they were still trying to sell the thing. According to the fine print, the IRS can't punish you if you refuse to pay the fine. All they can do is keep any refund you might be expecting. So, as long as you aren't overpaying your taxes via withholding, the mandate has no bearing.

    Do you see now?

    When you were cheering for ACA, did you not realize that putting government in charge of your health care would put your health care at the 'mercy' of government?

    How is that not seen ?

    It could be Cruzcare or Hillarycare. It does not matter.

    The government will always be a poor provider of services like this.

    One data point does not make an argument.

    And let's be clear, the government was able to throw money at Medicare for a long long time. However, that does not make them a good provider of benefits. In fact, they are terrible stewards over our money.

    Sounds like the republicans have convinced you of this.

    But funny even my most conservative British friend loves their healthcare. If everyone loves it they don’t fuck with it but because republicans can convince 40% of us anything including global warming isn’t real then they can convince them a good thing is bad
