McConnell knows that Trump can offer no guidance on health care. He hasn't the slightest idea of what is involved.

A five term senator, Majority Leader and one of the most powerful politicans in the world won't stand up for himself, his country or his constituents.

That's just SAD

The right wing base hates McConnell because he's no good with a tweet, and the out and out white supremacists [sic] hate McConnell because he has an Asian wife.

FBI watched, then acted as Russian spy moved closer to Hillary Clinton

As Hillary Clinton was beginning her job as President Obama's chief diplomat, federal agents observed as multiple arms of Vladimir Putin's machine unleashed an influence campaign designed to win access to the new secretary of State, her husband Bill Clinton and members of their inner circle, according to interviews and once-sealed FBI records.

Some of the activities FBI agents gathered evidence about in 2009 and 2010 were covert and illegal.

A female Russian spy posing as an American accountant, for instance, used a false identity to burrow her way into the employ of a major Democratic donor in hopes of gaining intelligence on Hillary Clinton's department, records show. The spy was arrested and deported as she moved closer to getting inside the secretary's department, agents said.

Other activities were perfectly legal and sitting in plain view, such as when a subsidiary of Russia's state-controlled nuclear energy company hired a Washington firm to lobby the Obama administration. At the time it was hired, the firm was providing hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in pro bono support to Bill Clinton's global charitable initiative, and it legally helped the Russian company secure federal decisions that led to billions in new U.S. commercial nuclear business, records show.

Agents were surprised by the timing and size of a $500,000 check that a Kremlin-linked bank provided Bill Clinton with for a single speech in the summer of 2010. The payday came just weeks after Hillary Clinton helped arrange for American executives to travel to Moscow to support Putin's efforts to build his own country's version of Silicon Valley, agents said.

No, actually, the Republican run Congress is garbage. I still can't believe that they spent eight years complaining about Obamacare and didn't even begin to have an alternative strategy in the works.

Their strategy was to block anything Obama backed, now we are seeing the results of their blatant racism.

Obamacare would have been repealed completely recently, except for the actions of two, or three Republican Senators. The "strategy" of the Democrats in passing the damn thing was to have solidarity in their Communist controlled ranks equal to the Soviet Politburo and resultant of the same various threats and pressures used by similar oligarchies. You and others accepting that type of tyranny in America is an example of the destruction happening historically each time populist tyranny destroys societies. Thus, the destruction and polarization of character in those like you is the actual problem. Victims of the Orwellian traps imposing the tyrannies of the Obama regime without the slightest relationship with traditional values and processes need to consider the fears and stopgaps protecting America's uniqueness by America's Founders.

Oh, Trump will turn it over to the Insurance Company Fat-Cats to come up with something that will Maximize their Profits, Minimize their Coverage, and Screw-Over their Customers, just like they've ALWAYS done...they get much more Greedy,..and Much More Wealthy, each year!
But, in their defensw, they have to factor-in their Pay-Offs to MxConnell , his 'Lil "Yes-People" in the Senate, and Trump, also.
Right now, we have a Majority in our Senate, and the White House, that would have made the Mafia envious, in it's most powerful Crime Era!

Your self-imposed idiocy is overwhelmingly stupid. Obamacare itself was a bailout of the insurance carriers. Trump is attempting to fix that by imposing required competition across State lines, etc.

Interstate Insurance without federal regulation? You will see all the insurance companies move their headquarters to the state with the least regulation where they can get away with the most. Any dispute with your insurance company be settled in that states Court. If you live in Florida you might have to go to a courthouse in Kansas across the street from that shining tower your insurance company owns and has its name emblazoned across the top.

So nothing illegal was allowed to fester.

Other than A case of identity theft, which the assiliant was apprehended by the FBI and deported.

That's useless information.

That's Trumpish Foolish. Insurance companies already sell insurance across state lines

It's only you financial illiterates and uneducated consumers who don't know:

Large employers who self-insure are exempt from state regulations and purchase group insurance plans across state lines.

What Trump and Republicans are proposing in allowing small employers to create associations able to buy group plans with flexible coverage. AHPs requires Congress actions to get around present laws.

That's not getting through the Senate to undermine the Affordable Care act, They were introduced in the 1980s

Those association plans (AHPs) have a history of becoming what the Labor Department termed “scam artists” and the Government Accountability Office reported were “bogus entities have exploited employers and individuals seeking affordable coverage.” More than two dozen states reported in 1992 that these early association plans had committed “fraud, embezzlement or other criminal law” violations."

Trump being the seasoned Flim Flam man that he is , is offering uneducated consumers Fools Gold.

You haven't heard much about these Association scam healthcare plans because they're for suckers and chumps looking to save a buck. Insurance companies don't front line market those policies because of the backlash to their company

What ridiculous tripe.

The Affordable Care Act is a 40+ year old Republican Healthcare reform proposal. Richard Nixon proposed ACA in lieu of the Democrats proposal for Single Payer. Senator Ted Kennedy negotiated with Nixon. The next time ACA reared was in the 1992 campaign between Bob Dole and Bill Clinton.

Today's fake azz Republicans don't have any idea what the Republican party positions were to bring the nation to the current divide.

Republicans, always insisted ACA as the "Market Based" Healthcare reform. Republicans don't like or support ACA now only because of who signed their decades old legislation into law.
