Amen! Along with the rest of the Progressive RINOs McCain, Graham, Murkowski, Collins, and the rest, or at least be honest with their constituents, and switch their political affiliation to the party they really support, which is the Progressive Democratic party. Amen!

So Republicans should keep trying to push a bill that they cannot pass over and over again?

It appears that bipartisan cooperation is your only option if you have the best interest of the American people at heart.

Of course, one must have a heart to understand this.

Maybe the Insurance companies could have a heart and lower premiums....God knows they are well off financial while the middle-class is being wiped-out.

Make insurance companies competitive thru removing state line barriers and pass tort laws reducing the cost of doctors insurance.

Having politicians just cave -in to insurance companies because they can give them campaign contributions is obscene.

Politians need to remember they work for US! They need to stop trying to take away our health insurance.

The Obamacare Bill was NEVER properly funded as the financial calculation for success was dependent on younger Americans entering the program, being conscripted, to pay for older and poorer Americans.

the program has a HUGE Shortfall of money that has the Insurance Companies begging for US Treasury subsidies.

Of course, it is possible, that the Insurance Companies are ripping off Americans with unfairly high
premiums.

Then you're in the wrong country. You need to move to Venezuela, Canada, United Kingdom, la France, or the Progressive/Socialist/Communis t motherland -- good ole Russia (remember the Soviet Union)? Single payer worked really well for the poor Russians, didn't it? Especially under Stalin.

When can we U.S.. citizens expect your departure, so we can celebrate that day?

Only in Kentucky. No doubt, this this is one of the self-rewarding reasons why Bevin insists on having a special session for tax reform. He's really looking like another RINO Progressive isn't he? He is a disappointment, that is for sure. We'll soon find out which of our State Senators and Representatives RINO Progressives as well, won't we?
