    by removing the individual mandate, trump has assured that obamacare will collapse of its own weight. When young healthy people are not forced to contribute, the program will swiftly run out of money. good riddance.

    dunno where you're living, but here, gas prices are up just about 15%, and half of the price of gas is TAXES. If you want cheap gas, take off the taxes.

    Not quite. The individual mandate was the most obvious means of funneling money to the insurance industry, but Congress didn't stop there. A whole host of tax incentives and subsidies are still in effect, still pushing people into buying more insurance than they need. Still propping up the failed business model of 'group' insurance.

    That's 10% minimum average EVERY year.

    The states where this makes the most impact are Trump Voter states. Already in Appalachia, infant mortality is up and life expectancy is way down. Red States are typically more poor because they don't believe in education. So taking away the government subsidies means they will have to rely on emergency room care.
    Also without the government subsidies and fewer people on healthcare means many rural hospitals will close. In many poor Trump communities, the hospital is the biggest employer.
    So Trump voters are going to get fuked in every way possible.

    Racism has consequences. The only reason many of those racist Trump voters hated Obamacare was because it had the word "Obama" in it. It was a vote against Obama, not healthcare. Now, they cut off nose to spite face and are going to have to live with putting their children and other family members in jeopardy just because they hate black people and by proxy, Obama. Tough.

    The taxes were there when ObamaGas was under $2.00, dumbass. Now it’s over $3.00 for TrumpGas.

    no we wont, cause we do not HAVE to join obamacare anymore. Once we pick up lots of seats in November, we'll finish killing it off.

    The core problem with ACA isn't the bill itself - which is disaster in its own right - but the fact that its most irrational "feature" is actually quite popular with voters: namely the requirement that insurance companies cover people who are already sick.
