This country... can't even mourn an American Icon without fighting over her body and her seat. We are pathetic.

The ACA is the Republican health bill from the 90s. It's Mitt Romney's Republican law from Massachusetts in the early 00s.    Yet when Obama brought up the same law, suddenly it became a "go

I actually think it could be a good idea. The life time appointments were supposed to depolitize the Judiciary assuming both parties would use the powers of congress to vet potential judges and ensure

He has no choice but to push the nominee through if he wants to keep his seat. The Evangelicals will turn on him in a heartbeat if they think he's blocking the path toward repealing Roe V Wade. 

Money is now pouring into Act Blue.  Graham's high profile role as senate judiciary chairman will cast him as an even bigger villain to the left.  He's already getting outraised by J. Harrison.  This has the potential to create a tidal wave of money for Harrison.  I know I'll probably toss him a few bucks for the first time now.   I also don't see an option for Graham to avoid this.

I was so sick watching people give to Amy McGrath. She has no shot of winning. That money should go to races where it will have an effect.

I wish it did matter. I will never understand why a poor person votes for a republican, just as I’ll never understand why a rich person votes dem. 


A lot of it is just buying the party line. But when they are negatively impacted in a clear and direct way it’s a little different.

It won’t be forced. Their sheep don’t care. 

I know a few Trump supporters who are approaching social security age and are on the ACA.  They don't care Trump is trying to abolish both.  It's not on their radar.  Stupid is as stupid does.

It’s not on their radar because Fox and the right wing media isn’t going to talk about it...

Absolutely but as the health care system crumbles their hand will be forced.  There has to be some sort of plan or the uproar will be so loud that eventually political will should shift and then a new plan will be introduced. 

 

They don't care about their voters. Republican voters were against the repeal of the ACA and they tried anyway. They are beholden to their donors and nothing else. You heard many of the voters saying they didn't believe Trump would really kill the ACA

Eventually people will get fed up with not having adequate health care in the wealthiest nation in the world.  It has been a major issue during the past 4-5 election cycles.  I think it's a mistake that conservatives haven't come up with a real plan to counter the ACA and I also think it's a mistake to assume that voters will support them no matter what.

Uhh... have you not seen the tribalism? These people are already taking on suicide missions filling stadiums for Trump! He's literally put the whole country at risk of death of a new virus and still has a steady 45% average approval rating!

In 2018 there were 15.5 million people who get Medicaid from the ACA due the the expansion. That number has only increased. If the ACA is struck down 15-20 million lose their Medicaid.

 

That's 5.3 millions people in red or swing states!

 

3.3 million across

 

Arizona

Iowa

Michigan

Minnesota

Montana

Nevada

New Hampshire

Ohio

Pennsylvania

 

This is not even counting the people who get it from the market places, and everyone has the pre-existing conditions protections that they will lose.

You've got to be really really rich to be "benefits from the GOP" rich.  Less than 1% of the electorate.

 

Everybody voting for Trump knows they got caught fucking a pig.  They're all trying to pretend that everyone else is into bestiality too.

Few benefit from it, but most believe the economic party line because it is what they have been fed religiously for 4 decades.
