    He said he would not let people die in the street, does that mean he will pick them up and take them to the dump?

    All he promised was to get rid of Obamacare/ACA which he hasn’t done. I have no issue driving by dead bodies in the street.

    TrumpCare is more of a philosophy, really, a fragile, ethereal being that floats like the most delicate wisp along the slightest of breezes... it's about freedom.
    • It's about the freedom to be unable to get basic coverage due to a physical issue that was not your fault...
    • It's about the freedom to have to take a job that takes you away from your children only because "they have medical"...
    • It's about the freedom to have to stay at a job that makes you miserable only because "they have medical"....
    • It's about the freedom to jam up a hospital Emergency Room for others because it's the only option you have...
    • It's about the freedom to let your smaller physical issues fester because you can't afford to get them treated, getting much worse until they're emergencies, and then allowing others to pay for your treatment at the ER...
    • It's about the freedom to go bankrupt and lose everything after a medical issue that was no fault of your own...
    • It's about the freedom to NOT start a new business because you can't afford or won't qualify for individual coverage too...
    And my personal fave...

    It's about the freedom for ME to pay MORE for MY coverage and services because I'm ALSO paying for the "FREE" care of those who can't get coverage.

    Freedom. It's a beautiful thing.

    Thank Reagan for that. He’s the asshole who forced these places to see people who can’t pay.

    Is that how you remember it, or is that how Trump wants you to remember it?

    "Trump said his plan for replacing most aspects of Obama’s health-care law is all but finished. Although he was coy about its details — “lower numbers, much lower deductibles” — he said he is ready to unveil it alongside Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

    “It’s very much formulated down to the final strokes. We haven’t put it in quite yet but we’re going to be doing it soon,” Trump said. He noted that he is waiting for his nominee for secretary of health and human services, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), to be confirmed. That decision rests with the Senate Finance Committee, which hasn’t scheduled a hearing.
    ...
    “We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better.”

    Doesn’t matter. I wasn’t voting for him either way. I wrote my own name in as the only truly Conservative option out there.

    It does disappoint me a bit, though, to see him making such Progressive statements about healthcare.

    Not to worry. He didn't mean a word of it.

    So, anyway, TrumpCare is bullshit lip service, intended to posit Putin's plutocrat puppet as a populist.

    P.T.Barnum would have been green with envy.
