I guess buying a pig in a poke is better than no pig at all, but it's important to remember that the pig allowed itself to be bought.

Thanks Sheryl . A complete health care system should be the right of every citizen it is not a privilege to be bestowed ,altered or removed according to the whims of political parties ,it is everyone's democratic right.and should be permanent once established.Had a Jewish socialist you rejected become your president you would have had one by now.Keep him in mind for next time..

I agree Walter. As one individual I did my best to get that Jewish Socialist into office, online and offline. I never worked so hard in my life to help a candidate win.

It doesn't help when the Party he ran under chose to trip him up and do whatever they could to make sure he did not win.

Bad enough what the GOP did, and the Corporate press, but when your so called friends stab you in the back it is far worse. Then look you in the eye afterward and say, help us.

If these damned Rethuglicants want to HELP their constituents, they should FIX the parts of ACA that need fixing, improve it where it needs improving, and quit trying to sabotage it!!!

In a surprise move, you probably know by now that John McCain voted against the skinny repeal! I was up watching the Senate vote on YouTube, and McConnell and his cronies' little scheme to repeal failed. Poor Mr. Turtle was all dejected (hehe). Pres. Cheeto will be pitching a Tweetfit for sure tomorrow.

I'm glad McCain did the correct vote. Maybe having brain cancer made reality set in and think about many Americans who would lose their coverage. Let alone we still have millions with no medical coverage even with the ACA.
