    Now that the ACA has been upheld Republicans have been establishing platforms of repeal and replace. But Lee Terry was very clear when he said that the GOP has no plan for the 'replace' part of the platform.

    The full transcript is here.

    Terry continues saying "We want to take it in a very deliberate, open approach and take everybody’s ideas." Which is an excellent approach but it has been going on for the last 60-70 years. ACA does everything it needs too. Lower costs, save government money, longer life, higher standard of living, etc.  The GOP is trying to point out flaws but the numbers don't back up their claims.

    The GOP's idea of AFFORDABLE Healthcare, is STRATEGIC GENOCIDE for the WORKING POOR, SICK AND ELDERLY...NOW, just think about that for a minute!

    At least EYE didn't directly compare the GOP to Nazis as one member does on a regular basis.

    Warren's plan is superior to all conventional approaches:

    -Give everyone $5,000 healthcare debit card. $1,000 is for preventative care; the other $4k is for other healthcare needs. 
    -Medicare For All covers expenses exceeding $5,000
    -What citizens don't spend, they keep at the end of the year, aside from preventative care dollars.
    -Minimal government involvement up to first $5k in health spending.
    -Preserve markets and people

    This has been going on for more than 70 years, even Tr tried to get a Universal health care program.
