    A repeal would be awesome, but let's try to keep this in perspective when discussing the 2 bills. Who among the sniveling libshits here has read all 140k pages of commiecare? On the other hand, this bill is at least more digestible at 140 pages. You statist pricks who worship at the altar of govt largess make me sick.

    Its sad when you realize that Ryan Paul and Mitch Mcconnel control, manage and owe 300 million people, and using trump as a puppet. And 300 million have to bow and bent to their will, dying in misery, poor, and republicans don't care. Total success when it comes to capitalism.

    This bill will murder the most vulnerable in order to lavish the very wealthy. One word for this: Satanic. Rs need to fear God/Jesus more than trump/McConnell. This type of F'd up evil will stain their souls for eternity.

    For the people that think this is the same way the ACA was handled, there was 26 days of public debate of the proposed law. There will be 20 hours of "debate and amendments"

  • miching mallecho

    The bill will affect 1/6th of the U.S. economy, likely strip healthcare from the most vulnerable Americans - including children - and they won't hold open hearings or let the Senate committees look at it, and Mitch McConnell wouldn't even commit to giving senators 10 hours to review it. The way they are writing this bill is literally unprecedented. Republicans like to talk about how the ACA was passed in the dead of night, but the ACA was debated in open hearings for 25 days, and 130 amendments were considered, including some from Republicans. They're hiding this bill because they're ashamed of it, but just watch - they'll vote for it anyway.

  • Bob Steel

    Stephen, you seem to forget when democrats did this, and that also republicans were not allowed to participate. Remember NANCY PELOSI said, YOU'VE GOT TO PASS IT TO FIND OUT WHAT'S IN IT.

    If you commie leftists recall, and since your deluded liar in chief Hillary NEVER could recall, the main authors of Obumacare were Jonathan Gruber, Dem senators Baucus, Bingaman and Conrad and a couple of RINO's (republican in name only). They let no one see the bill, even when they were finished. If you recall the dems didn't even give enough time for the legislature to review the 2,000 plus page monstrousity after it did come out. Then Nancy Pelosi (dem speaker of the house) refused to allow ANY debate and called for a floor vote, stating that "We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It"!! Well, we still haven't found out everything that was in Obummercare because he kept changing mandates and lying to the American people. It was supposed to be "healthcare REFORM" not a tax and bad government policy that would ultimately put most health care insurance companies out of business and raise the costs of the average insurance policy holder by several thousand dollars. Sure, it gave millions of people healthcare while taking away millions of dollars and healthcare from millions of others and then fining them if they didn't.

    1) stop saying your name and waiting for an extra applause break every single night you walk out. Carson never did that shit. Letterman never did that shit. Leno never did that shit. we know who you are. you JUST walked out to applause after the announcer said your name. the monologue is tight enough as it is and you lose a good 10-15 seconds every time we have to wait for the insufferably liberal audience to scream again.
    2) stop with the same, tired, old "FRIDAY" jokes every week. we get it. the show isn't always taped on Friday and the crowd is in on it. it's like the tour guide at some tourist trap destination who tells the exact same joke at the exact same place on every tour with every group.

    It should be illegal and more importantly a federal crime with massive jail time for a senator to vote on a bill that he knows nothing about nor has even read it in its entirety and comprehended what he read. Ideally each senator would have to be able to elaborate on any part of such bills to verify their proficiency previous to the vote. Refusal to comply automatically resulting in said senator having recuse himself from the vote. (If there are not enough votes for quorum the bill gets put on hold until every senator can prove they have a firm grasp at a later date.) To prevent the willful abuse of this law to stifle bills by the opposition party, any senator failing to prepare for a bill he intend to vote on gets a strike on their record. (After 3 strikes they are fired for willful neglect of their duty as an US Senator.)
