  1. Whatever happens it is going to be bad for people like me, with Pre-existing conditions. I have epilepsy and a small brain tumor. Not cancerous, so no operation. I already pay over 1000 per month for medication. Next year, when Trump's medical coverage plan hits us, I will not be able to afford it. Am on disability, so I will be one of the people who will slowly die. Having uncontrolled seizures, because I cannot afford the medication. Not anything we can do about it. I am not the only one.

  2. the Rebumblicans fail to tell people that the problem with Obama's existing health care is caused by the insurance companies and what it cost to be insured and that the issue is to have enough people paying into it to reduce the costs for all of us they are also reducing the obligation of the rich which would help subsidize the cost, Obama's health care is failing because insurance companies are raising their rates to cover preexisting conditions (because insurance companies only want to take your money not have to pay it out) and that's why they are trying to pass a bill that does away with preexisting conditions so they can say the rates are lower but only for the healthy and young
