    Well that should give them time to make the bill even crappier.

    I admit I didn't realize this was a thing. The Senate will delay a vote if a senator falls ill?

    They don't have the votes in the first place.

    They need time.

    They can put lipstick on that pig of a bill but that doesn't change the fact the bill is a POS.

    I get that. I'm speaking more to procedure than motive.

    McCain has $20 million... So what he is going to do is go get a tax payer funded surgery then vote to take way middle class and poor people's healthcare.

    Well i don't think the bill has even been submitted to committee yet so there's no time constraint or anything.

    You don't have healthcare now. The obamacare is not working never has worked. It cost taxpayers trillions for nothing. Not much is covered for treatment the only thing people saved a little money on was prescriptions and not much money either. But if your here illegal you can go to a free clinic get treated for free get meds free. The bill the republicans want to replace the turkey of obamacare with is not much better. McCain is set he doesn't have to care. We do have to care.

    They just may. I'm worse I've said they are thieves and liars to their faces. Told one the only reason they are running for office is to steal without fear of getting caught. In front of a lot of people. Did the same to his opponent. Done it several times. Susan Collins dreaded me showing up because I was not nice with my blunt questions. She's a real cold hearted witch. Didn't want to answer so they 86ed me from her town halls.

    we dont? Funny How I went to the doctor of my choice in May, was taken care of in a professional manner. and had no co-pay.

    some people dont. most people have good healthcare insurance under the ACA. and it covers pre existing conditions.

    Now the premiums are a huge problem, i will agree with you there.

    But Healthcare insurance itself.

    Millions of Americans are happy to have health insurance whereas before OBAMACARE they had none.

    I refuse to refer to any of those *********s as representatives. Most of them make more in six years then I've made my entire life, but they're representing people like you and me. Sure.... meanwhile, they're collectively selling us out to the highest bidders, while we keep arguing amongst ourselves about which side is just a little bit worse...
