The GOP wants to eliminate requirements for maternity care and cancer screening, and prohibit the Department of Justice from defending the law of the United States in court.

They should probably have this joke of a bill introduced by the venerated Carrot Top, or at least play the Benny Hill theme when they do it.

Spoiled brat REpublicans ignored the problem for 100 years and now that they deign to draft a health bill of their own that will be worse for poor people than nothing at all. They don't care how good or bad the health care law is, it's not theirs, so it's no good.
When will they grow up and govern?
Never, I'm afraid.

The American people really to wake up! The GOP was in power 16 of the last 26 years. The only prosperity Americans enjoyed were economic "Bubbles" ie: Dishonest, inflated, aristocratic wealth enhancers that cost Americans Millions of jobs and Trillions of dollars in average net worth. Furthermore, where were all the GOP ideas then? I'll tell you where they were, they were in the Bills that Dem's proposed through out those 16 years and were voted "Hell NO! by GOP'ers until they bled every dollar they could and then bailed in 2008 leaving America at the very edge of economic collapse! Now, the GOP magically has all the answers? Wake up America! Before this time they completley destroy us!

The healthcare does not give all Americans health insurance. Millions are not covered with the healthcare bill.

All states should follow Vermont and challenge the federal government to make a single change to Medicare: get rid of the 65 year old provision.

Using your numbers of 93%, it would be 21 million would not be covered, but the true number is higher.
