Since Roy's reading comprehension is questionable, here is a direct quote from my link:

An AOL News poll finds 57 percent said they prefer the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Meanwhile, only 30 percent of respondents said they prefer the AHCA. Another 13 percent of respondents said they weren't sure which legislation they preferred.

If you poll clueless people you get clueless answers.

I was watching CNN, where a Republican House Representative said,"I have to listen to my
constituents!" Imagine that...

Are you speaking for yourself?

Like Trump, you only believe polls that confirm your assumptions and hold to your "alternative facts."

Your speaking for yourself and your fellow Socialist on this forum.

If the Dems and GOP don't come together and figure out a way to improve the ACA, the insurance companies and hospital executives and big pharma will continue to make out like bandits while doctors and patients get fucked over.

Medicare for all is the only reasonable answer. Let's join the rest of the industrial world and go single payer. They have lower costs and better outcomes. A win-win for all.

Roy thinks it's fine for millions of other people to lose their insurance and have no option for medical care except going to the ER when things get desperate -- and going bankrupt.

Of course he's not willing to give up his own coverage, and rely on the ER for his health care. The very idea is preposterous! Why, that would be a disaster for Roy!

But he's happy to see that same disaster inflicted on others. That sadism is the basic characteristic of the modern Republican party.

So why do you think that would be an OK outcome for other people who lose their health insurance? Why would it be OK for someone with the same medical problems as you to be forced to go without treatment except for emergency care at the ER?

I said no such thing. When you can stop your lying I may answer you.

What politician is championing this? Give me a name and I'll give them my vote if I can.

What was your point when you posted this?

The point is obvious unless you are a brain locked liberal/progressive/socialist. But I repeat myself.
