    They should just stop lying. They have no intention of replacing it and aren’t competent to, if they wanted to replace it.

    About 50% of Americans either like the ACA or want to see it expanded. Another 17% want it improved, but maintained. Their base wants anything with the name Obama on it destroyed.I know quite a few people using Obamacare. About half have seen their rates go up under Obamacare, but at a slower rate than they were before. The other half have either had them go down or remain essentially the same. My cousin, who is diabetic, had trouble getting a job, because she messed up the company’s insurance plan. With Obamacare, she was hired within two months and is still working. My brother, who was only working to keep his insurance, because his wife has health issues that could wipe out his retirement money very quickly, has now retired. That makes both his family and that of the woman hired to replace him very happy. My granddaughter was able to stay on her parents’ insurance plan until she was 26. No one thought this was especially important, since she had no health issues, until she was injured and spent a couple of days in the hospital, which cost more than that year’s tuition.Obamacare has been a blessing to everyone I know who is involved with it. The Republicans have a sure way to lose in 2020. If they can’t replace Obamacare with something people like better, they are going to make much more than 1/2 of the population really angry with them. Single Payer is easy, does the job, and is something that the Democrats would vote for. They can even call it Trumpcare. The Republicans may be stupid enough to reject something beneficial because they don’t want Obama to get credit for it, but Democrats, hopefully, are not.

    Who needs Obamacare? The Rich will be covered by free insurance from their employment (only the best) and the poor will pay or die. the Republicans are finally getting the death panels they wanted. Do you think they will worry about the Replace part? I doubt they’ll even Repeal, they’ll just put a T on it and pretend like they made it.

    Where’s “Joe 6-Pac” when we need him?

    I think after four years of Trump and the Republican Taliban, we’ll be ripe for a socialist revolution

    Republican leaders do not care about the health of their electorate.

    Funny how the GOP is out to kill their own voters. They’ll have to gerrymander twice as hard.
