    People would be free to buy insurance although I'm not sure why they would. Maybe if there's enough people who hate the government and want to pay for it themselves a market could develop.

    The admin burden would be significantly reduced. This is single payer + cash transactions. There's nothing to catalog.

    The individual must spend $1,000 on preventative care to collect on the unspent $4,000.

    Expenses above $5,000 would be covered under Medicare For All.

    Unvelievable how the Donald says with hurt feelings that he is not getting any help from the Democrats in stripping health care from the middle class.

    Over this week, he's threatening to gut funding for the ACA so it will fail.

    How many poor people working for minimum wages (Federal $7.25 hourly) do we know who have $1000.00 just lying around to dispose of? I know of 0, as in none, zero.

    Yes, today the idiots are trying again to get rid of the ACA. I guess no one studied what is exactly in it; but yeah now they tossed in an 8 billion "fund" just in case certain States "drop" the pre-existing conditions. For the rest this bill seems to be even worse than the first try. In the meantime Trumps is signing "church" executive orders related to "birth control pills" and other church stupidity. TX is issuing an bill about sanctuary cities so hey can deport people as they like.

    Yes this country goes deeper and deeper into the shit swamp; congratulations GOP voters you will feel the effect.

    I wrote an e-mail to my Congressman, Doug Lamborn, that no reputable businessman would approve of this plan without having the knowledge of how it will effect us economically (i.e. the CBO Score). The rush to approve this before anyone finds out what's in it makes little business sense. I told Lamborn, that if he votes yes, and the CBO score later turns out to be very negative, it will be a big embarrassment to him, Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

    While the feeling is that the Senate will not approve it, we don't know what backroom deals Trump will make so that he can check off another box as "campaign promise accomplished".

    Thanks Schmidt; I guess the people who eventually get affected by this and find out that they are being screwed, will hopefully not ever vote GOP again. I hope there will be again some town hall meetings in their 11 days off the job, where they get nailed and loose their "seat" that way.

    @Dutch, Ryan, the speaker has refused to have any type of town hall in my city, he must be a scaredy cat. I watched him bobbing his head today when they announced the house passed their repeal-replace bill, the man makes me sick. I'm hoping Wisconsin voters see through his bs. He's a gutless wonder.

    Dock, the whole bunch stood for an photo op; all white "fat" gray haired idiots; the only black haired idiot was Ryan. Typical "representation" of White Christian lying hypocrites. I hope all the people of other "color" find their way to the voting booths.

    I wrote Rep Doug Lamborn again expressing my "deep disappointment" in his vote. As Lamborn often touts his "Christianity" I asked him to think critically if his vote was based more on a deep seated hatred towards our former president rather than acting in the best interest of his constituents. I closed asking him how Jesus would have voted.

    Your last line is quite funny; First of all Jesus is pure dust by now; second he could not have voted; not an US citizen; would be deported, if he would come here; third does not know what "democracy" looks like; never has seen an voting booth; knows only what an "Roman" or donkey/camel looks like; has no clue about healthcare ( likely they did not have cancer etc. at that time; because nothing was polluted yet). fourth they did not have billionaires either yet who did not pay taxes. Five, he was gay ( running around with 12 guys) thus LGBT; no rights whatsoever. sixth, no catholic churches or christian churches at that time; thus Trumps executive orders are wasted on him. Hallejuja

    If you wrote a letter to your representative, you'll be bombarded by positive slant spam.

    I wrote my governator about his union busting tactics, and all I got back in return was positive slant or biased emails saying what a good job he was doing.

    The senate will probably tweak the house bill and pass it on to dear leader for signature. I'll be among the 24 million people scrambling to figure out what to do.

    I have written my Representatives and Senators on several occasions. Most of the time I get a reply, which doesn't say anything of interest. It is the usual blah. blah, blah. However, I still write to express my views because I think that if they get many letters with similar themes it will be harder to ignore. Doug Lamborn, a member of the Freedom Caucus, however, is hopeless. He needs to be voted out of office.

    I respect writing to express your views. When we no longer attempt to communicate, we're lost. Many dirt ball candidates need to be voted out. A strong party would coordinate those objectives. Hoping we get effective new blood in our party. We should be very results oriented as we move forward. Then vote out opponents not just because they're R's but because they're bad.
