Woman With Dying Husband Unloads On Tom Cotton At Town Hall Meeting - The Ring Of Fire


  • Added:  5 months ago
  • Tom Cotton is one of many Republicans who want to destroy the Affordable Care Act. And like many other Republicans, he decided to hold a town hall event in Arkansas to address the concerns of his constituents. But he never could have prepared himself for the anger that the crowd showed over the Republican plan to strip away health insurance, and one woman in particular stole the show by telling the story of her dying husband and asked Cotton what kind of insurance HE has. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

    I have a lifelong friend of mine that just recently died of cancer that was only 44 years old. At one time he was a conservative. He could not afford healthcare. He had found several lumps in his chest area but could not get any treatment because he didn't have health insurance. This went on for about 4 years and there was nothing he could do about it. After Obamacare came out he was finally able to go to his primary care physician, who in turn referred him to an oncologist and made the determination that he had cancer. After that he pretty much overnight became a liberal. If he could have gotten the healthcare that he so desperately needed there is a very good chance that he would be alive right now. I'm not going to say that there aren't things that he couldn't have done to make it easier on his body. (such as losing weight) but I can understand his reasoning to why he changed over. I'm not going to sit here and say that Obamacare is perfect, or even good for that matter, But I will say that for him it was too much, too little, too late in the end.

    Missing !
    Indiana Senator Todd Young !
    Senator Young R-In. is so worried about getting slammed at town hall meetings, that he just stopped having them at all. Senator Young will not meet with the very people who elected him in his home state.
    Now Senator Young only meets small business groups that support his policies and applaud for him.
    Isn't that special?

    I love the silence of the Church when men, women, and children are in danger. PURE HYPOCRISY of those so called representatives of God.!!!
    Matthew 7:15
    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
    James 2:14-26
    “14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

    She should pay for her own health care. And not expect her neighbors to pay for her. Medicare, Medicaid, and Socialists Security are all Ponzi schemes by created by democrats to control the people. Socialism never has worked and never will work.Create a true free market of health care and it will be affordable to everyone rich and poor. Doctors, pharmacies, drug companies, providers and Insurance companies do not want change. Because real free market change would cut into their wealth.. They want to keep the status quo.

    SLOWLY slowly Republican voters are beginning to realise that politicians are bunch of liars working for LARGE U.S. CORPORATIONS be it in HEALTHCARE INSURANCE, HOSPITAL SERVICES, ETC.ETC.ETC. I think, very soon, both poor American Republican Voters and Poor Democratic voters will soon begin to march HAND-IN-HAND TO THE WHITEHOUSE and throw out that buffoon out of office.

    The host of this video was, Tom Cotton UNDERSTANDS, he just doesn't care. Thirty to forty MILLION people without medical insurance is collateral damage to him. He does not CARE. His only regret is that he can placate his audience without admitting he will repeal the Affordable Care Act.

    VERY WELL SAID. I must say, I am a Canadian addicted to U.S. new. I ask myself, Why doe's the Strongest, most advanced Country in the world, not have Universal Health Care? Does it cost more? Yes, I do pay a bit more on my taxes, in the same breath, the more you make the more you pay in taxes. Which balances the cost. Low income or the homeless have free coverage. We take care of everyone!
    Will I standby and watch someone in pain not be treated because he/she has no health care? Not a chance! We have the medical personal available to us 24/7, 365 days a year The cost is just a few more dollars in income tax.I personally would ask my Representative to go to the many Countries with Universal Health Care and see how it's done.I see the Insurance Companies making a bundle doing it in the way it's done in the U.S. I have watch many of the candidates over many years, of all the candidates I have seen, I personally think that Bernie Sanders is the only one that gets it. Who you have as President doesn't matter ( unless he beaks the law ) IT'S THE PERSON REPRESENTING YOU THAT MATTERS.
    Do I agree with the politicians in this country? I believe I feel as the Americans do.We trust that they will represent us the best way possible. Be the people and Country we all used to turn to and respect. The current administration is slowly but surely pushing your allies away. God bless the U.S.A. Just my thoughts.

I think it's time we start addressing other diseases like people have treated obesity for years, that if you did it to yourself, then that's your own fault, you want somebody else to pay for YOUR poor decisions?

    it happen. They have bought their politicians and we're screwed. We
    have the most expensive per capita health care in the world yet are
    the only first world country to not have Universal Health Care. I
    paid no more out of my paycheck in England than here but here I have
    to spend $10,000 a year more paying
    Health Ins. Corporations and can still go bankrupt from med bills

    It's hard to feel sorry for these people. They across the board voted for the very people who campaigned (and Won) saying they would repeal and replace the ACA.....
    Now they are upset with those they voted for, for doing what they said they would do?
    Did they not understand what repeal meant?
    This is a great example of being careful of what you wish for......

    ACA is faltering on its own anyway, trying to put blame on politicians who are trying to get rid of it, instead on those who let it pass is myopic. The ACA was nothing more than a shot of morphine or a necrotic limb, even if the ACA is left untouched, within a few more years it will crumble completely.
    Many states have already seen their healthcare marketplaces be reduced to one or two providers, the costs are hiking, coverage is still shrinking and even with the subsidies lots of people are still not being able to afford the out of pocket costs. ACA is seeing the same faith that Massachusetts's system under Papa Romney saw after a decade of its implementation. The ACA was written by the health insurance conglomerates in benefit of their profit margins, not of the end user . . . was it better than what we had before? Sure, but that is only for a period of time, just like morphine. The ACA is not for the long haul whatsoever.

    Singapore spends only 3% of GDP on healthcare but alls citizen are given (or mandated to buy) insurance which costs from US$3/mth US$75/mth, which covers all pre-existing condition. No idea why the US, which is also classified as a 'developed country', is experiencing such a big difficulty providing for something so basic.
