I am not sure what you guys want. The insurance companies have all but pulled out because of their losses. The new plan allows for a 9B$ fund to help low income pay the premium, along with tax credits, and tax credits for those earning under $75K. States will be able to legislate pre existing coverage.

My health insurance rates tripled under Obama. I am hopeful that this puts them back where they were.

Re: “McSally Declines To Take a Stand on Zombie Trumpcare

She is no different than the rest of the DC bunch. They only there for one reason, to line their own pockets. The only way we will ever get that mess straighten out is to not reelect any incumbent!!
Maybe if we keep sending the message that enough is enough, just maybe someday we might have representation for the good of the Country and not special interests!

She's too chicken-shit to answer her phones here and in DC and if you want to email her you have to provide a valid address in her district with a full 9 digit zip or your email will not be processed. Her twitter is @marthamcsally and her FB page is www.facebook.com/RepMcSally if you want to voice your opinion on her vote.

Well, that's just plain fucking McSilly.

Betraying your constituents has consequences. They're called "elections".

See you in 2018--on the cutting room floor.

Victor is proof that the only guiding principle that the mouth breathers of the GOP have is pure spite. They'll burn the country down just to piss off liberals. Make America hate again is their real motto.

Re: “AP: McSally Urges Colleagues To Vote for This 'Fucking Thing,' aka Zombie Trumpcare

I tried to reach McSally by phone all morning. The DC phone number was just busy, busy, busy starting at around 7am Arizona time (10am Eastern). But even when her local office opened at 9am, no one was answering the phone. I managed to leave voicemail telling her to vote No, but clearly she doesn't care at all about the thousands of her constituents who will, once again, not be able to have health insurance.

This is a disgusting bill, heartless toward poor people and those who are the most sick, and generous to the richest 1 percent, who get a tax break! Medicare For All is the only answer to the terrible mess that is the US "health" system. Why are we the only industrialized country that allows people to go bankrupt because of illness? Our health care costs are higher than most other countries and our results are worse. Shame on this Congress and shame on McSally!

Re: “AP: McSally Urges Colleagues To Vote for This 'Fucking Thing,' aka Zombie Trumpcare

I guess we'll finally get that fucking "flexibility" that they wanted us to have: a junk healthcare plan with no consumer protections, a plan no one can afford or nothing. Fucking thanks for nothing McSally! Well, I guess she finally took her stand! I'll be there at 5PM to record my displeasure.

Perhaps she was also a fan of Bruce Springsteen and "Born to Run".

Re: “The Skinny

Has anyone considered that the so called debit card can be used to pay tutors? What standards are there for the tutors? Why can't a parent who doesn't like the personal scrutiny of public schools pull their kid out and claim they are home-schooling the kid, and then use the voucher to pay a family member or friend to "tutor" their kid? I have worked with too many abused children who were removed from school under exactly such circumstances and been horribly abused in their own families for this to be a fictional situation. Second part of the scam is $5600 will pay the cost of sending a kid to a private profit-making tutoring organization for kids with questionable or non-existent results. Another way to make private profit money off kids and parents.

Re: “Cannabis: A conflict in cash

Really, We're haggling over something that should have never been outlawed, to begin with. Driven by corruption, racism, protectionism and a skewed perception related to Blacks & Mexicans & employment opportunities. Facts being, No One Has Ever Died Consuming any form of this plant. It has Health Properties that no other natural plant possesses. National Legalization is a Massive Benefit to The Planet & People, All other life forms, especially The Environment as a Whole. The Descent comes from the corrupted, the invested and businesses that will see their profit margin drop. What We All Need To Ask Is, What Is Best For The Planet & Life?
