While Democrats (and some Republicans) pat themselves on the back for shooting down President Trump's Healthcare proposal, major healthcare providers continue pulling out of Obamacare, while those remaining, continue increasing the public's cost for the program. And the only alternative is to increase income taxes to make Obamacare affordable to those who can't afford to pay. And those of us who can afford to pay, will get even at the polls.

"And those of us who can afford to pay, will get even at the polls."

The lunkhead right wing already did "get even" at the polls - it was nearly a toss up - and look what happened to Trumpnocare.

Like it or not, Trump had a workable proposal. Do the Democrats have one? Obamacare is failing because major healthcare providers are pulling out. And remaining providers are raising the public's cost. Perhaps your family is on welfare payments, expecting my working family to pay for your healthcare. But guess again.

The Democrat Party was useless in the resist Trump Move, they really shouldn't stand before the press as a representative of the major grassroot rallies against Donald Trump's regressive and illegal policy initiatives.

I hate to see democrats gloating because of the failure of the Republican bill when they're dine nothing to be considered a benefit to the effort of the Resist Trump Movement

Major providers are leaving the market in states and regions where residents, even with federal subsidies cannot afford to purchase healthcare insurance.

But that's how insurance companies treated those same areas before ACA was enacted. Rural Ted state areas didn't have multiple choices to buy healthcare insurance

Why keep an office in an area where the citizens can afford your service or product.

That's like Donald Trump opening up one if his hotels in one of those locations knowing the residents can't afford a $800 a night hotel room

Again, democrats had nothing to do with the Republicans failure. Trump is blaming phantom democrats for his inability to close the deal.

If you're receiving welfare ACA isn't a benefit for you. Sounds like you don't know much about the functions of your government agencies.

The clear, Republican majority in Congress did not think so. Perhaps you should ring them all up and 'splain it to them.

You don't understand the very first things about the ACA. "Providers" are not pulling out. Some insurers in some states are (I think it's a capital strike, not that you know what that means.) It's almost as though you have no clue - and you don't - that the ACA is a private health insurance marketplace administered by the government and including subsidies for the poor and charges to those who don't participate.

Cletus! Dang u stoopit.

The attempt by Democrats to make this issue into a Trump loss, or a Republican loss, is only an example of how they pander disinformation at every chance, after being such losers at the Federal, State and Local levels of American government. This fake news is intended to continue the populace's ignorance imposed by the Democrats for fifty years, commonly using drugs and criminality as Communists always do. The conflicts between the three branches of government were intended realities by our country's framers in the Constitution. Rubber stamp government, as was practice under Obama, is not the way to find common ground, nor encourage the plurality the Constitution intends. Creating a bunch of hoopla over a bill that continues, instead of fixes, the monstrous Obamacare failure and collusion between Marxist Democrats, compromised RINOs and insurance companies and banks, is disingenuous and intended to further undermine the intended processes of the Republic.

It's not the Democrat Party in opposition against the draconian Republicans' policies. It's mobilized American citizens from every corner of the United States unbound by your restrictive political party ideologies.

It was American citizens uninspired by politicians who stood together exercising their 1st amendment rights demanding their grievances be addressed. Chief among the grievances are Republicans' solution of eliminating 24 million Americans from access to healthcare insurance. That was not acceptable to most reasonable minds in America

If the failure of Ill Duce Trump's long and often promised "repeal and replace" of the ACA was an Ill Duce Trump/Republican win then why was Ill Duce Trump trying so hard to repeal and replace it? He was trying for a defeat?

You have reached new levels of stoopit with that Ann Coulter-on-rat-poison quality talking point.
