Big pharma at work here. This clown MacArthur has been bought out.
I'm 23 years old and I've had Crohns disease (an extremely painful chronic disease with no cure) since I was 9 years old. Im terrified of what the future holds for me once I turn 24 and I'm kicked off of my dad's insurance. The medications I take would cost up to $1,000 a month without insurance. Please, no matter whether you're liberal or conservative, have some empathy for those of us that are sick.
STICK YOURSELF WITH A FORK, MacARTHUR ------------------- YOUR FAT AS IS COOKED IN NOV. 2018 ------------ FUCKING COOKED.
... and the term is "ASS" . AS or ASS ------------ IT'S COOKED.
Get rid of the insurers. They add NOTHING but they extract value. Most civilized countries are single payer. Doctors and patients make decisions not bureaucrats in either government or insurance offices.
The US health care model is collapsing because it is based on GREED, not on "care for the health of the citizens". It is also based on a LIE....the lie being: "we cannot afford to cover everyone".
A politician knows how to use language to avoid, manipulate, obfuscate, run out the clock and generally DEVALUE and DIMISS whatever concerns are expressed by the public.
Going on about his personal story seems unprofessional. Is he wanting pity? So many people have difficult challenges in their lives but they don't get a platform like a politician does.The purpose of a town hall is so that the elected representative can LISTEN TO THE VOICES AND CONCERNS OF HIS CONSTITUENTS!!
This guy could care less if he comes back. If they vote him out he just goes back to his insurance buddies. It tells you everything this guy is about. The only reason he's in Washington is to be a shill for big insurance. He has not told one truth yet keeps saying I'm telling you the truth. Actions are bigger than any word. Watch what he does not what he says!
You are a disgusting, stupid, ignorant slob, covettekrud. My daughter and I paid into the very system for 33 years that we were denied by our republitard governor when I got laid off and my daughter was still in school. My entire pension was lost right before I retired. You are not even worth the words on this page. The only one who sponges off the system is low life's like you who are the first ones to embezzle the government any chance you get. So do the civilized world a favor, fuck off and die you useless scumbag.
Minute 43 - " Im not going to call on you because you are standing and waving". This Congress Critter is a real Creep! Doing his little power plays and all passive aggressive. What a bunch of bull cripe.
Costs keep going up, because there are not enough controls. The health insurance for profit is a crime. And health costs need to be reviewed. Should not have a CRI scan be $600 in one location, $1200 in another, and $5000 in another. And this is for 3 places all in the same city.
speaker at minute 39 had a good point "i dont want to have to move, to get to a state that will have health insurance". (He also had a great way of acting in the same way as the Congress Critter.... very smooth!)
It was yelled "we are in a constitutional crisis" and the congress critter repsonds "I dont think we are". what an idiot Tom Macarthur is!
what a f****** dick yeah more money in your pocket less money in the poor and middle class working people's pockets and then you take away our Healthcare will let me tell you I could have no I never could afford Obamacare so I could just imagine what trumpcare is and why are you giving this 3% richest people in the United States attacks break they have so much f****** money now they don't know what to do
This guy is a total sell out, a total shill for the GOP and his Insurance buddies. Not to go with out saying a straight up dickhead, mostly a dickhead. Yeah, a lying little dickhead!!!
😆😆😂😂😂😂 people are piss up even me love it 😆😂😂😂
we don't care about your life oh talk about health issues bro 😂😂😂😆
There's no dialogue here. This creep just regurgitates his right wing talking points...aka lies. He works for the insurance companies and all the town meetings in the world won't change that.
it's about time someone stood up and told the GOP just what is what. We from both sides need to get together and finally take a stand against all the crap that is going on in Washington DC. I praise this doctor for telling it just the way things really are. We need to take the reigns and fight against the stupidity occurring . We need a revolution of the common people against the political bull crap happening from the GOP.
It's running out of money because of out-of-touch Republican tax cuts.
I am glad that the guy that works in healthcare stood up and spoke. He ripped this congressman a new one.
Mark your calendar: VOTE Tuesday, November 6, 2018
This guy is a real piece of shit.
This discrimination against FULLY KNOWN CONDITIONS & DISEASES is WRONG. In 2017 conditions & diseases are the reason people NEED their health care and these Republicans think otherwise. They think the problem is that young people who don't need insurance aren't buying insurance so they have to GUT the entire ACA to get young healthy people who don't need insurance to buy a plan? That is most definitely NOT the issue. The issue are for PEOPLE WITH CONDITIONS & DISEASES in this EVER GROWING LEARNING WORLD THAT MAKES PROGRESSION. These politicians are standing in the way of SCIENCE & PROGRESSION by DISCRIMINATING against each and every condition they can think of. They are not doctors, they are not scientists. They are the ones who are supposed to be listening to the people to make the laws which are going to be best for the people voted by the people. But they choose to work with the insurance companies who were deemed to be EXPLOITING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHICH IS THE REASON WE GOT THE ACA IN THE FIRST PLACE. Any human being who makes it their personal job to trick people into thinking their current health care system is bad is pure evil because republicans slandered it with the name "obamacare" either works for the insurance company or is being paid personally by insurance company money. It is downright evil and against the will of the majority of the American people and should be considered to be criminal at this point to try to deceive the American people about their very own health care laws and rights that protect them and give them a sense of fundamental security that any human being in the FIRST WORLD should have to prevent NEGLECT. NO ONE IS TAKING THIS LYING DOWN THESE REPUBLICANS THINK THEY ARE FOOLING SOMEONE THEY HAVE NOT GOT 1 PERSON INTERESTED IN HEARING THEIR SLANDER TO RUIN AMERICAN HEALTH CARE WHICH IS MORE STABLE THAN ITS EVER BEEN IN HISTORY. THESE REPUBLICANS ARE OPERATING AS FOR PROFIT BUSINESS AGAINST THE GOOD OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND IT NEEDS TO BE RECOGNIZED.
I think that Trump should release his tax returns but I am against Congress forcing him to do that. lol
This mob are cowards!!!!!
Canada has a whole different mindset.
Tom MacArthur is doing well. It is easy to follow the mob!!! It's easy to say YYYEEEAAAA with the mob. Obamacare will screw you!!!
DNC will screw you and you don't even know it!
Get on with it then
New York is very close to implementing single payer. If you are a NY resident, tell your legislator to pass the NY Health Act. If it passes in New York, it will spread to the entire country.
Tom McArthur a congressman shameful rich man unminding the poor and the sick he is rotten lier
He got "RIPPED" a new one!!! GOOD!!!
and he's representing both sides.. by fukcing you both... vote republican again stupid..
stop your complaining fools.. vote republican again.. you're all stupid anyway..
This man is in love with his own voice... How monotonous.
Typical political tactic: When addressing someone who disagrees with you, hide behind those who do agree with you.Kudos to the guy (35:05) who said "Probably because they watch Fox News!"
The man standing up with the glasses is right. An independent prosecutor is needed to investigate Trump.
All I can say is when people's family starts dying, they'll remember this guy when they have lost everything.
Perhaps we should just all be Americans and stop letting these political elites pit us against each other - i voted for obama and trump - after being fooled and burned by the clintons. I am grateful to obama and trump for stopping them. Seth Rich is the source of the leaks for sure - not sure if they murdered him but I hope the corrupt washington elties are indicted and locked up.
So he takes a page out of the book of The Big Lebowski and responds to everybody with "Well, that's like your opinion, man".
republicans are bad for American citizens, vote them out in 2018.
LIAR!! Another Pinocchio!
Mitch McConnell must go..
Even poor countries throughout central America and South America have universal health care. I thought the states is the best country in the world. oh Cuba has it too!!!
Childish reply CK.
Move to Cuba then !!
this is dull asshole never saying anything important
The sad part is he doesn't care about anyone in the room. As long he gets his Donations from Corporations, he doesn't care about the people. He is own by insurance, banks and Pharmaceutical lobbyist
Corvettekid You should check facts before you expose your stupidity AGAIN! The Crash of '08 caused the USA to have job losses of 2.6 million or the highest level in more than six decades, caused by Fraud, from the banks/investment Co. Prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death in America. Please, use some part of your brain, and stop eating your own shit or the shit that is fed to you.
Right, at least those entities actually create jobs and useful products. Tell us about the welfare maggots wanting something for free ?
GUESS WHAT INDUSTRY CONTRIBUTED THE MOST TO HIS CAMPAIGN?Hint: insurance.maplight.org/us-congress/legislator/2099-thomas-macarthur
if you don't get the point then you probably vote Republican.
Yeah, and those companies got lots of $$$ from Obozocare.So what's your point, Sherlock ?
He never answered that rape is a pre-existing condition. He danced around it. Cause the answer - if he answered it honestly - is a disaster. That high schooler's question nailed it.
A crime is not a condition. The high school moron is retarded.
Sounds like a fucking minister. Loves talkng about himself. Start talking about loving others then yourself.
Put the government on the same minimum wage ideals of the american people and things will change...overnight...
Being Canadian and watching these GOP lie too there voters saying our system is broken pisses me off! I have a story I found a lump 1 month ago in my breast called my doc I got in to see her in 2 days then within a day I had a mammogram, ultrasound, ct scan, blood tests and it was back to see my doc 1 week later for a pap test it cost me NOTHING except gas in my car! I need surgery in a few days but that will also be covered costing me NOTHING they don't think it is cancer but to be sure when in doubt take it out! Now for such a bad healthcare system where the government is responsible to provide us with great healthcare which comes from our hard worked tax dollars we pay for having peace of mind it will be there when we need it is the best life I think any human being would want for them and their children! Yes government runs it but we run the government they work for us and they know it!.. they can be replaced they know it,.. I feel bad for Americans cause If my MLA ever said I don't care what you want I'm doing what I think is best he wouldn't have a job at the end of the day! Social media is great because when these morons tell you its not working in other countries tell them I've talked to people in these countries and they would never give their healthcare up they work hard everyday to support their families without the worry of not having healthcare when they need it!
Katz B You tell em Katz!!!! Get Well!!
HE'S WEAK! DON'T VOTE FOR HIM EVER AGAIN DUMMIES
Hmmm. . . . "Health insurance market is collapsing". Perhaps that's because they're shelling out the REALLY BIG BUCKS for lobbyists and political payoffs.
You people had you chance to hang him by the neck in the town square, but you blew it.
Republicans are the SCUM that walk this earth.
24:35 lol his only fan
Starting off with The Pledge of Allegiance? Allegiance to what, corporate and oligarch interests? Because, that's what our government is really all about. Freedom and democracy are illusions. Our politicians have zero fidelity to The Pledge and The Constitution. Patriotism and religion are the most common tricks politicians and shysters use to gain our trust. And, if this country ever fell into anarchy, the first to flee and salute foreign flags would be the wealthy and our leaders. They only worship money.
None Ya true
Eff you too, dumb ass. Wise up. Go read a book.
Get lost, clown.
Let me finish is going down in 2018...
bla...bla...bla...after all the childhood tribulation, still no compassion for the suffering of others...
Fucking evil politician
Slaves to flag
Damn, Whore media propaganda is effective. Does everyone swallow this Russian nothingburger?Its just a designed distraction from the corruption that saturates the ruling elite across both parties.
Excellent questions. Single Payer is the only answer because there are no insurance companies and no multi-million dollar and billion dollar CEO salaries. Hawaii has Single Payer/Medical for all (same). California almost had it until the Republicans pulled in "the terminator" to veto it. As far as the rich or ignorant that have "different opinions," they are irrelevant!
Are these idiots aware who and what Hitlery Clinton is?
MacArthur ducked the question about rape being a pre-existing condition. Twice.
MacArthur: "...There are some people who would disagree with you."Unseen man: "Probably because they watch Fox News!"Class!
Oh gee, be a smart consumer? Yes! Let's see how that works... I get a heart attack so now is the time to start reading brochures, comparing acrane prices that aren't even available to the public, and determine which hospital and doctor gets me the best value. When I've come to, and the hallucination wears off, I'll be screwed for $100k even with insurance. But wait there's more! If I try to get preventative care, it often won't be covered under this plan, thus leading to far more profits for companies, but death and crippling health issues for the masses. It's crap like this that dosent fly in any other developed nation in the world.
This politician is a fucking loser!
Single-payer is a cute buzz-phrase for liberal elites and the economically ignorant who have never taken a job in Economics or Finance or Business. It's supported by people who majored in English, Sociology, Women's Studies, Black Studies, Psychology, or Anthropology. Or never graduated high school.The same people who support Single Payer also thought we were running out of oil in 1980 and again in 2008 with "Peak Oil."People who think Single Payer is good probably think mail delivery would be better with a U.S. Government monopoly like the Post Office and eliminating Federal Express and UPS.
Didn't any of these mofo'ing repugnicans ever watch The Grapes of Wrath? They're all as ignorant as Trump who obviously never learned about Watergate. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. Now truer words ever spoken.
34:00 and onward
but,but...Dump said Hilla ry required a special independent committee about her emails
Life stories of people without compassion are totally uninteresting - You cannot voted for a healthcare bill that provides no health care and give a rats ass about your constituents. The gentleman who said that this member of the house was the greatest threat to him and his family in America is absolutely right. And this man should lose his seat. So should my house member Steve Knight....
Joan Meijer The fact is that politicians do not give a damn about Americans. Without jobs in so many states, Americans are going to start dying and there goes the fall of America. This corrupt government keeps giving Israel billions of our taxpayers money each year and yet they don't give a penny for our domestic needs.
GOP feeding B S Spin for the 1% DENY, DENY, Corruption at work
Tom MacArthur... a "Yes" man to the orange baffon..
If you don't like Trump ,get the fuck out of America, It was you Obama Care that messed up everything,
That's the sign of a thin skin, someone like Trump who can't take criticism, who thinks his hero Trump is always right.
At last Trump worked for his money. Hillary just sold secrets to the enemy.
You're joking! Trump worked for his money? He was born into wealth. His money was inherited.
define "the market will fail" vs the market can't earn the billions it has been earning before obamacare
There will be no flag nor a coffin to bury the poor and sick.

For him to ask for respect must be an impractical joke... You do not ask nor are entitled to any respect when you are a hypocritical twat.
Fox Political entertainment or what I call propaganda central. This guy wants to create High risk pools for the government to pay for, to give insurance companies the healthy best risk for a profit
You delight in insulting just about everyone who writes an opinion. Your favorite put down is insulting their intelligence. I have yet to see any sign of brilliance coming form your remarks. A Rhodes Scholar you are not and thus in no position to call others "stupid".
No, because a small number of high-risks screws up the pricing for the rest of us.Thanks for showing your economic ignorance.
When $200billion is needed and this bill allocates $138billion... and suddenly another $8billion being added is this a success? What happened to mathematical basics?
All civility and respect has been lost. The Left claims the Right are the mean and hateful bunch. I couldn't sit through the entire thing. The part which I did watch was full of misinformation and hysteria. First, if you are employed at one company, move to another company and have a pre-existing condition, that condition will be covered. It has been that way for decades. ANY coverage that is part of a group plan MUST cover pre-existing conditions. The "pre-existing" mandate, or lack there of, would apply to less than 10 percent of folks. For the most part, we are talking about folks who chose not to endure the cost of health insurance and wait until they get sick to look for a policy. I say we force the auto insurance industry to do the same. Yep, drive around for years, don't purchase insurance and pocket the savings. Then when you crash your car, call up the insurance company and say, "Hey, I want to buy an insurance policy that covers the crash I had yesterday. PLUS, you can't charge me a dime more than the guy who has maintained insurance on his vehicle for years!". Man, this is awesome. Let's do the same with life insurance. "Hello, is this State Farm? I want to buy a life insurance policy for my wife, a million dollar policy." State Farm: "What is her age and how is her health?". Customer: "Well, she is dead, died yesterday. Make it a two million dollar policy." Sounds completely reasonable to me!
The only ones that have a bad brain is these people in the room. I'm for, voted for, and will stick up for president Trump. I'm for a wall. I'm for illegal aliens to go back home. I'm for babies that are murdered every day. I'm for laws. Not lawlessness. I'm for taking down the Democrats. I'm a born again Christian, and I know the signs of end times. I'm for kids going to college to not be brain washed by college professors. And I'm for Jesus my savior. blessings
Babies are not being murdered everyday in America. An abortion of an embryo that resembles a snail is a universe removed from the the actual murder of a living, crying, pooping baby. You are using semantics to to hide your falsehood.
Its obvious that the majority of people on the microphone are suffering from an extremely rare case of schizophrenia called "THE LEFT". What's worst is that there is no cure for that, at least for 4-years if not more.
This show just how fucking stupid the Democratic party is truly the party of disgrace with all the Shit Obama put on the American people let alone the Obama care disco screwed mess on health care The people of Willingboro, N.J. are really sick in the head mentally ill without direction you people are a disgrace to New Jersey.
If it was TomMacArthur's Mother or sister or daughter he would have a different view.This man is evil incarnate .....just sayin. what an asshole
Tom MacArthur is a total piece of shit who agrees with insurance companies who do nothing but paperwork verses caring for everyday ppl
Tom MacArthur is a corporate crony asshole who doesn't care about the citizens of this country
For real this guy can go and fuck himself...obviously...Small is no excuse with as many ppl there are in this fuckin country...we have far more healthy ppl than sick ppl. what a fuckin asshole
lets break this down simply.if u r in good health today some day u will get sick. u will then b moved into a healthcare risk pool when u need the help the most. this is what he is double talking around. if u like this please keep voting for theses liers.
you're in NJ representing NJ and you're ganna bullshit the people ..I'm glad they lit this POS ass up
Overall prices will decrease as a result of single payer system. Of course, under that system, for individuals it's a matter of taxes. However since the government would be the sole payer to the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, this creates a monopoly that the government has. Monopolies have the power to dictate prices, not negotiate. Either they agree with the prices, or they go out of business. This is the power we need working for the people. What we have right now is the opposite. The healthcare and pharmaceutical industries dictate what the prices are, and if you can't pay, then you suffer or die.
As I understand it -- people fear that under Trumpcare if they are raped and take preventative medication for HIV- they could be denied- it doesn't specifically say rape in the bill- but that it how they insurance companies find out and reject people. They can't do that with Obamacare, but they did that before Obamacare- and with Obamacare gone they will do it again. They also could reject people if they got any therapy after rape because that would be a pre-existing condition.
