    And here I am sitting, a poor as fuck student with type 1 diabetes and treatment resistent migraines, getting automatic appointment renewals from my hospital through my government's own special mailing system every few months with orders of "please go get a blood test taken and deliver a urine sample a week before meeting in the hospital" and getting all my equipment for my diabetes treatment delivered to my door without ever having had a credit card or cash out of my wallet. I am SO lucky to have been born in this part of the world with the problems I have. It's literally like I've won the lottery!

    @LastWeekTonight all political satire shows and media channels should start calling the bill ***TrumpCare*** deliberately and all the time possible so Trump's voters base will realise what his actions led to. It will already be too late but the blame should be put on the right person.

    I can't believe I'm saying it, but Amercia should learn something from the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic is really fucked up country, but our health care system is fucking good. Everyone who works can afford it, even if they have minimum salary, everyone who studies has got it for free and everyone who doesn't have a job but is trying to find one has it for free as well. It's unbelievable that the USA doesn't have proper health care system. Obamacare was actually quite good, by the way.

    Funny thing, in Canada our Health Care System was made possible by a man named Tommy Douglas. I wonder how Americans would feel to know that one of their #1 hero's for so long, Jack Bauer from 24 aka Kiefer Sutherland, is Tommy Douglas' grandson. That's right America, our socialist Healthcare, which your politians describe as crap (newsflash it's not, as I never had to pay for doctors visit, hospital treatments or surgury) was brought to us by the grandfather of a man who literally threw himself into a Christmas tree (if you don't believe me, go through previous John Oliver episodes, you will find it and it is extremely delightful). Mr. Oliver, if you ever get the chance please, oh please work this into an episode, huge fan please keep uploading your episodes. And, Mr. Sutherland if you for some reason ever read this comment, huge fan of you, your father and especially your grandfather (who has literally saved millions of Canadians).

    They really expect trump to read all that?? whenever the intelligence committee has to brief him on important issues in writing, they say that in order for them to get his tiny brain to understand anything, concentrate long enough and actually pay attention they have to include his own name in every sentence. And they seriously expect him to read all that?? Pfttt! good luck with that.........I guarantee you when the shit show hits the fan and the effects of this new health care bill begins to be felt, he is going to be like "I was not the one who made that bill guys. IT WASN'T ME. I DIDN'T DO IT. I did't even know what was going on. I was not even made aware as to what was in it. It was rest of them people."

    Republicans are so stupid. Insurance is good for the economy, instead of everyone saving up $1000 and only one in a thousand people using those savings, everybody contributes $1 to the insurance, and spends $999 on something else, meaning the total consumption increased by $999 per person, which would be a HUGE boost for the economy. But nope fuck the poor, and the non-rich, and the economy while we're at it.

    I'm afraid of literally what tomorrow will bring. Will the Senate pass their bill? Will children be blamed and held "accountable" for their cancer? Will my sister lose her health insurance? Will several people in my family and my friends and millions in the country be discriminated on conditions that they can't help but have? Millions of lives will be affected. I'm am scared for us all.

  • Mike Wazowski

    The GOP and recently Drumpf have done every thing they can to make the AHA fail rather than fix it.

    The GOP has sued Obamacare and the feds in 27 states, used their state controlled House/Senate and Governor seats to stop payments to the insurance companies, blocking 7 billion dollars. They have done every thing they could to prevent it from working.

    Drumpf signed executive orders to stop payments and to prevent the IRS from enforcing mandates.

    All of this has worked to make the system stop working and raise premiums and force insurance companies to pull out of a variety of states.

    If any thing, the GOP is out to kill the middle class and the poor by forcing them cover their own expenses. They have reduced the taxes for the wealthy 1% and they have given more of the burden to the working class.

    People who voted for Drumpf are either stupid or enjoy destroying the middle class. They think Drumpf will bring back coal and that he'll build a wall, that he'll complete his promises. However you Drumpf supporters are fools. You fell for the oldest trick in the book. Tell them you'll do every thing, then when you get in to office do very little for the voter and every thing for yourself.

    Drumpf is doing every thing to help out his investments. He is using his seat to force more profits for himself and his family. He'll ignore you and keep telling you how great and wonderful he is, but you'll pay in the long run. We all will. He's a lying sack of moldy dog shit.

    I oppose any government interference in health care. Health care and health insurance should be entirely left to the people to decide for themselves as they see fit is a completely free market capitalist economy. I don't care is it's Obamacare or American Health Care Act; both are illegitimate government interferences in the economy.

    funny how they talk money when talking about the rich, but percentage with the poor! The reason the rich get richer is because it forces the poor and the rich to be held to the same standard I.e. 15% thus less "money" being taken from the rich compared to a 30% money tax. PAY ATTENTION.

    I often disagree with liberals, but they are SPOT-ON with regard to healthcare. The difference between medical treatment today and in the Founding Fathers' day is not like the difference between an automobile and a horse-drawn wagon, it's the difference between folk remedies and an MRI. This is a LIFE AND DEATH issue! We're not talking about the "right" to live in a McMansion or the "right" to own a cool TV----healthcare is not OPTIONAL! Fuck the Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, Randroids, etc. on this issue! Fuck them in the ear with a rusty scalpel! Stop sending these assholes to Washington, goddamnit!!!
