Want lower rates? Stop electing Republicans who get huge buckets of campaign money form the health care industry, and act accordingly.


Does that mean that there were no increases until the Rs took over?

 

Does that mean that Obama did not have to send money (on his own - not enacted by the Congress) to the insurance companies to cover their losses??

 

See - sometimes facts are needed, pure hatred doesn't do the trick.


Where ARE your links to facts?

Where is your proof?

Links to facts are mandatory - republican/conservative assertions unsupported by facts remain the usual republican/conservative bovine by-product.


Both items mentioned have been discussed on these boards.

"Last year alone, Obamacare premiums surged by 25 percent and 83 insurers abandoned the exchanges. Since Obamacare went into effect under the previous administration, skyrocketing healthcare costs and fewer choices have become the norm," said Alleigh Marré, national spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services. "This analysis confirms what we already knew — Obamacare is flawed, failing, and harming the American people. "

Face it Obamacare is not as sold.

Trumps promise to lower healthcare costs

Trump is a pathological liar and an ignorant man. When the house passed their health care bill, Trump praised the bill, thanked members of the House, and hosted a big celebration in the White House.

 

But just two weeks later, Trump called the very same house bill he previously praised, "A Mean Bill".

Yes he did. As did many Members of Congress who ran on the same platform.

 

Despite the rants of some on the left, President Trump is not a dictator therefore he has to await Congressional action before he can sign the needed legislation.
