Congress is hearing from those who don’t want to lose Obamacare.

“President-elect Donald Trump and congressional Republicans appear to have accomplished a feat that President Obama, with all the power at his disposal, could not in the past seven years: They have galvanized outspoken support for the Affordable Care Act,” the New York Times reports.

“People who benefit from the law are flooding Congress with testimonials. Angry consumers are confronting Republican lawmakers. And Democrats who saw the law as a political liability in recent elections have suddenly found their voice, proudly defending the law now that it is in trouble.”

    the sad part of this is that, millions who were on Obamacare voted for the ass and party that vowed to destroy it. they were so filled with hate because a black man became president, that they couldn’t even be bothered to understand that Obamacare and ACA are one in the same. so their solution, get rid of that heathcare called Obamacare all while thinking they were hurting minorities and the poor. this is the outcome of hate. you screw yourself.

      Your thoughts about those who voted for Trump and other GOPers for president and to sit in Congress are very similar to mine. I worked to help pass the PPACA even while knowing I would never be eligible for the program. I was working to help the dumb*sses who just voted to have their healthcare taken away from them. Because I’m a state retiree, I’ll never have to worry about having my healthcare coverage taken away. Those who voted for these chumps and will have their healthcare coverage taken from them deserve to have it happen. This might be one case in which a failure to do their research could cause them to go back to having to use GoFundMe to cover their medical costs. I have zero sympathy for them. None. And, I don’t plan to throw one red penny into their GoFundMe pleas for help.

        i don’t understand why someone is so hateful, that they rather die by voting against their own best interest then cry. i have no sympathy either.

    So, even when losing the election, we win the argument when it comes to health care. I find that amusing. People are waking up after all. Never lose heart, my fellow liberals. The wisdom of President Obama will be appreciated more and more as time goes on. Presidents are rarely that popular while still in power.

    Before England sent prisoners to Australia, they sent them here. Some of their many descendants are cooking meth and chasing their sisters, and voting against their own interests.
