    Murphy is full of shit. Here is a guy who voted for Obamacare and did not know what was in the bill. He is nothing more than a Democratic piss boy. What is his plan when Obamacare goes bust?
    If I were Trump I would just wait a year or two and watch Obamacare go bust.

    *** Obama rushed his medical care bill in two years. Trump & Co. want to get theirs through in Trump’s first 100 days? That’s why they both are and will continue to be flawed in many ways. ***

    There have been a number of articles pointing out a large number of voters would voted for Trump didn’t know Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) were the same plan, they hated Obamacare but want the benefits of the ACA. Another point, nobody wants to pay auto insurance homeowners insurance and health insurance.

    Thank you, Senator Murphy, for highlighting the far-reaching and serious consequences for millions of Americans if the current ACHA legislation becomes law.

    From the nonpartisan CBO Estimate, overview:
    www .cbo.gov/publication/52486

    CBO and JCT estimate that enacting the American Health Care Act would reduce federal deficits by $337 billion over the coming decade and increase the number of people who are uninsured by 24 million in 2026 relative to current law.

      Keeping the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) in place and allowing it to collapse as Andy suggests has been an option. As the CBO report points out, the biggest change with the American Health Care Act relates to the massive increase in Medicaid that Obamacare included.
      So the Democrats can’t come up with a more credible representative to present their view? What’s next, another sit-in in the Senate chambers?
