    By eliminating millions of people from coverage, which I know you dont support.

    Excuse me, but it is laughable to me that the left thinks that the right enjoys watching people die as if we all sit in a dark room sharpening up our knives and grinning from ear to ear at the demise of the elderly and the sick. It’s so comical. Ok, seriously now, the reality is, we want an affordable healthcare coverage that doesn’t break the back of all Americans and Obamacare in its current state is doing just that.

    Would you be willing to invite Bernie Sanders to the table and all of this data and the attention he brings regarding the insane costs? You would have to work with people like him when you ask the Democrats to come on board.

    Sure! Everyone needs a few laughs, so I’m all for it. Sanders has some ideas, but when it comes to healthcare, you know he wants a socialist single payer system, besides as with most socialists they are not really good at math, especially when it comes to paying for this, who, where and how for some reason never crosses their minds.

    I said before that if costs were cheaper then we could have a bipartisan plan in about 10 minutes.

    Sanders can’t get that done, that’s for sure.

    Who said I was White???

    You were asked to provide evidence for your claim of reverse racism, something you said put Trump into office. You did not provide evidence. Your choice. Moving on.

    I did. Who voted for Trump overwhelmingly? White people and why is that? For one reason, they were tired of being treated like trash, had to walk on egg shells and had to hear all the time, shut up, you don’t matter, they were left in the dark, they were forgotten, America’s Bread basket nation, the “Heartland” was told it didn’t matter, their rights, religious beliefs are nothing, the reverse racism and what they had to deal with over the last 8 years drove them to the polls, Obama was supposed to be a uniter and instead became a divider, the country got tired of being this out of control PC nation that you had to walk constantly on egg shells otherwise trouble would await you. Trump is a clear repudiation of Obama and those policies. If we didn’t have an Obama, we wouldn’t have a Trump.

    As a licenced real estate agent I can tell everyone here that the above violates the Fair Housing Act which "prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status and disability."

    That’s swell and dandy, but the fact of the matter is, regardless of what the law states, if you lived in NYC in the 70’s with all the crime, almost 2000 murders a year, drugs, prostitution, vacant and many buildings used by squatters and corrupt cops, the mafia, gangs, the environment was totally toxic and we don’t know the full details of the story. Typical left one-sided thinking, because these papers were filed, you think it’s a slam dunk, I believe and from my knowledge about NY and how that time period was, it was very complicated and we don’t know falsified police reports are written all the time, I have a brother that’s a cop and that is a very normal thing. To clarify (because I know libs gloss over words and are emotionally reactionary) I’m not saying Trump is innocent or guilty, I am just saying, given the history of NY which was a very, very scary place at the time, history dealing with people of all races, I’m not buying it.

    These laws were put in place specifically to stop people such as yourself,

    Stop people as myself? What in blazes are you talking about?

    and it's based on your actions, not your thoughts, so feel free to describe yourself anyway you'd like. Still guilty.

    Sorry, but you know nothing about me.

    Over and done. Moving on.

    So let's throw millions of people off of insurance, throw more off by ending the medicaid expansion, and close down health screening for the poor at Planned Parwnthood?

    I never said that, No Republican said that, the only thing they are trying to do is get the cost under control and get those much needed tax cuts. Sure, it's a bad bill, but no one has ever said that making sausage was beautiful, they should pass it in the House, modify it, get the Dems on board to work with them and take it from there. If Dems care so much about the poor (which they haven't for a very long time) they would have never allowed the premiums of this dreadful junk skyrocket.

    Look, obviously by your comments you aren't on board with the GOP plan and I applaud you for saying that. But the second a dreaded liberal says something about it you go on the warpath and start with the usual line by line "say the opposite or say nonsense" game. You not only distract others but now you are distracting yourself from your own points.

    What on Earth are you talking about? The only thing I get annoyed about is the fact that the liberals screwed up the entire system, completely to the point where No one can afford this Spruce Goose, it was supposed to be affordable and it's nothing even close to it and now the GOP are in actuality doing the same thing, except it's the elderly that would have to foot this thing and not like the young with Obamacare. I fault both parties and their endless feud, but liberals do tend to go bat bleep crazy over anything that doesn't fit within their narrative.

    Short sighted, unworkable, and flat out bad leadership, and we're all going to pay the price.

    Yes, they are doing the same stupid thing the Democrats did.

    Can you give us some examples of how this has impacted you?

    Has nothing to do with me, but it has everything to do with the millions of Whites that stood up and voted for Trump, that's the biggest example right there.

    You are from one of the most open and potent societies on earth and are part of the race that is the majority by far and has a lock on all institutions. How big of a tissue do I need to get before your start strumming the blues of how you are persecuted?

    Who said I was White???

    Remember, Trump had a "blacks need not apply" policy in some of his apartments and you've stated multiple times that that is not racist.

    Again, we don't know all the facts involved in that, but having lived in NYC and especially in the 70's where drugs and police corruption was out of control in the cities people like Frank Lucas that worked with the Italian mafia and oversaw all of the street drugs, it was a very dangerous and toxic environment and how do we know that some of these people weren't selling drugs in and around the neighborhood, prostitution was a mother problem, with all that chaos in the area, maybe he had more than enough reason to not let these people in. Remember, there are always 2 sides of a story, you would think liberals would have learned that by now.

    So let's hear about this reverse racism that actually meets your standards of proof when that situation does not. This is crap spouted by right wing talk radio idiots is rotting your brain.

    Right wing crap? LOL. Sure, sure. I won't get off topic, sorry, but I'm not going to blindly just let myself get spoon fed that Trump is a racist without a shred of evidence and not allowing someone to reside in your residency doesn't make you a racist.

    Has there EVER been a 'working class' Cabinet member? come on.... So now because those guys are rich, they have to apologize for their success?

    No, being filthy rich is a sin. Obama once said about the late Steve Jobs and Apple, "you didn't build that." Basically, he can't and shouldn't take credit, let's spread the wealth and keep people dependent, self-reliance is such a bad thing.

    But then again, if you are a rich liberal, it's ok, even though rich liberals are the tightest people on the planet.

    Where has compassionate conservatism gone. It has been replaced with revolution for revolution's sake and nutball oligarchs.

    Not at all, the Democrats have become the party for the rich and elite, go to California, Boston and New York, all the people that exceptionally affluent are almost all liberal. The GOP has become the party for the working class, the religious persecuted and the fighter for small business, that's pretty much the revolution that has been taking place.

    At least there were programs to help the needy during the Obama administration.

    Off the back of the tax payer, true that.

    That is, until the party of NO took power in the legislature once the right side riled up enough white animosity against a black president to put the GoP back in power.

    Here we go again, back against the wall, nothing to say, let's get the race card out.....smh.

    Yes, the GoP is in power because America is still basically racist.

    In that case, it is racist towards whites, so when the last admin. was in power, Whites were marginalized, mocked, ridiculed and had to apologetic for everything in life just for being white, even though the whites of today had nothing to do with what happened in the past and the vast majority of them helped elect the first Black president after that, they were thrown away to the side like a broken toy. I don't think its the whites that are racists, I think reverse racism was being perpetrated against whites. Liberals think racism goes one way only! Give me a break!

    Obama's presidency was a turning point for race relations.

    He made race relations worse than the levels of the 60's

    Now, all the GoP has on offer is less for those who need help the most and more for rich individuals and corporations.

    Poor people can't create private sector jobs.

    As for your reply, could you please say something relevant to the discussion that makes the slightest bit of sense?

    I did, you just don't like what I have to say.

    You don't seriously think that Obama's "Hope and Change" slogan equates to "change for the sake of change" just because it has the word "change" in it, do you?

    No, I'm saying, his hope and change wasn't the change we wanted and hasn't worked out for most Americans, socially or politically (especially for the Democrats) You guys are really an entertaining bunch, that's for sure.

    Seems that passing the law will be equally detrimental. That's what happens when you promise something to your base you know you had no chance of delivering.

    Yeah, like 8 years ago the ACA will be affordable and you can keep your doctor.

    The loss of Medicare coverage alone should send quite a few people over to the Democrat's side and help pad our 3,000,000+ vote advantage.

    Don't worry, we have a long way to go, a lot of dealing will be done. The Dems aren't going to win by huge margins based on what has happened over the last 2 months, we still have a very long way to go to fix this. Every president has had ups and downs, if it were 2 years into his admin. you would have an argument, but not after just 2 months. You guys....lol!

    I don't think there is a single person anywhere who wants government policy to simply be "change for the sake of change".

    We had to listen to "hope and change" talk for 8 years, I guess that's the new narrative now.

    Nice logic there Donny: Don't pass the bill, and you've broken your promise not to repeal and replace Obamacare; pass it, and you've broken a dozen, more specific promises on coverage and access and pricing - and cuts to Medicare.

    All they need to do and should do is just pass it through the House, it probably will be killed in the Senate, that's ok, just gut the provisions and morph it, streamline it and tailor it to what you want, this could help bring some Dems to the table and they can work on a proper bipartisan plan.

    Oh, and nice job trying to distract attention from yesterday's Russiagate hearings. Not gonna work, though.

    More like the left distracting who in the WH leaked the conversations between Flynn and the Russians, Trump's taxes and all the other leaks? I mean, they just didn't leak themselves.

    You finally got something right. I'm not "Left" or a conservative. I consider myself to be an independent (like a lot of Americans).

    Then we both has something in common, good to know.

    I will speak out against counter-factual claims, propaganda, and other misinformation that gets posted on this site, and a lot of it comes from the right-wing supporters here.

    As will I.

    Same goes for Republicans and right-wingers.

    Totally agree with you, so then both sides need to back off unless there is a smoking gun and some names, otherwise they are just wasting everyone's time.

    The flat-earthers that believe in him are a terrifying display of the state of your country.

    flat earthers? I give you guys credit, y'all do try to be.....creative, I guess.

    And all this because, what, you had a black man as a president? I'm gob smacked.

    Here we go with the race card again. Well, we could say the same, the vitriol that's going on is because the current president is White. Reverse racism! Jeeez, you guys!

    I am not "the Left."

    You're not a conservative either.

    Any U.S. citizen who didn't sleep through civics class should care about checks and balances. Political affiliations have nothing to do with this.

    Has nothing to do with civics classes, at least not these days seemingly, but the world has changed a lot.

    Nice deflection. I was talking about Trump's losses in the Federal courts.

    I know that, but as I said, let's just see where this all goes, it's not over yet.

    Right. So the Federal judges who slapped down Trump's travel bans would be examples of Trump winning, right?

    Let's see what happens once Gorsuch is appointed.

    What's that supposed to mean? Do you think that Gosurch will be a rubber stamp for whatever legislation Trump wants?

    Not at all, I think he will interpret the law accordingly and from the looks of it, the revised law seems to cover and left out all of the provisions that got it blocked in the first case. I'm not a lawyer never studied law, but every admin. has the top lawyers and in this case, they got blocked by a few looney lib judges, got it, overstepping their jurisdiction, but be that as it may, this is the world we are living in now, so I would think once all the presidents lawyers drag this to the supreme court, they just might find what Trump is doing is not unconstitutional, but we well see. It doesn't do us any good to litigate the ban here, let's see what happens.

    If so, he shouldn't be on the bench. Also, let's remember that Chief Justice Roberts didn't always vote the way the right wanted, so be careful what you wish for.

    For one, he will be confirmed and two, it goes both ways with this ruling.

    So no, the Democrats are not dicator-lite.

    Sorry, Dictator-heavy. Went through that and thank God we have that behind us.

    Let us know when the laws change as well. Unless the past statutes have been changed, they are still in effect, and even the President must abide by them.

    Oh, please. We used to not have hearings for Supreme Court justices, but things change, we used to not give aid to the enemy, sorry things change, if you don't like it, call your local congressman or go to Washington and protest, it's the liberal thing to do.

    OK, so now he can be a dictator.

    Hmmmm....the way the Dems are acting these days, I think they are more Dictator-lite with the way they want to force this president out of office and undermine the political system.

    That's just great. Perhaps you have forgotten about the whole "checks and balances" thing that was built into the Constitution?

    Now all of a sudden, the left cares about checks and balances....seriously? Dear lord.....

    He's already been challenged and has lost.

    Actually, No. Because if the left won, he wouldn't be in the WH, the GOP wouldn't have majorities throughout Washington, the House, the Senate, 33 governors the largest legislative branch. Sorry, if anyone has lost, it's the Dems. Heck, they still don't have a leader to guide them out of the darkness.

    The "leg" is called the law, and so far, Trump hasn't fared too well against the Judicial branch of our government.

    Wait until Gosurch is on the bench of the Supreme Court, let's see how things will turn out.

    Nonsense. Just absolute right wing, nonsensical garbage and you know better than that.

    Ok, you think so, but you never know.

    No one is claiming Russia hacked the voting machines,

    I never said "voting machines" I was referring to hacking period.

    Who are the Dems? The house intelligence committee is 1) Made up of both Republicans and Democrats and

    Equally divided.

    2) No one ever said they don't have proof. In fact, it is again quite the opposite; There is no doubt Russia attempted to disadvantage Clinton to the benefit of Trump.

    I already said that, but there is NO proof that the Trump admin. was in any collusion with Moscow. That is all I am saying.

    Did they actually collude with the Trump campaign? That we do not know yet, but its under investigation- gotta be something there.

    And there might NOT be anything there as well, it goes both ways and the Feds might be investigating something or someone that isn't even connected to the Trump admin. you never know. Dems and libs are focusing on ONLY one thing and that is why they keep dropping the ball constantly. Heads up!

    There is zero proof on either side actually the FBI already has some proof of Russias hacking involvement in the election, hence the investigation.

    I agree, never disputed that.

    I'm neither a Liberal or Republican but I certainly know stupid when I see it.

    Well, it would be stupid for any Liberal or Democrat to think they know more than the FBI.

    The Constitution might not say anything about this, but there are plenty of anti-nepotism laws which do. Look up the 1967 and 1993 anti-nepotism laws just for starters.

    I did and we are in 2017 things change. Journalists on TV before prime time are not supposed to give their personal opinion on anything other than just report on the news, but that's changed as well. A lot of things change and even if liberals object, it's ok. They can and Trump should just do as he wishes, unless someone wants to challenge him, but I am assuming they won't because they left knows, they have NO leg to stand on.

    You mean like the First Lady, how much does she rule her husband.

    What's wrong with that, my wife rules me! It just goes with the territory.

    So she doesn't have a government job but she has a White House office paid for by American tax payers,

    Yes, she is after all, a Trump staffer and confidant.

    comms devices paid for by tax payers and she will have access to classified information... and no-one on the Republican side sees anything wrong with this?

    No, nothing wrong with it and there is nothing in the constitution that says Trump can't appoint anyone he wants.

    If I was an American I'd be demanding someone look into this. How can that be right? if she doesn't have a government post then keep her away from anything even remotely sensitive.

    Thank God, foreigners can't govern in the US, otherwise it really would be a complete catastrophe.

    @Cortes

    Yup! Couldn't have said it better myself.

    but as of now, there is no proof, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. actually as of now it didnt happen , until proof is found if any. Americas legal system , "innocent until proven guilty" There fixed it for you.

    Exactly, falls on both sides. There is zero proof on either side. Before you libs start jumping out of your skins again, yes, I believe there was Russian tampering and doing God knows what, but as far as collusion is concerned on The Trump admin. Nada, nothing, nichts. Once again, Comey had to tell liberals this again. So both sides need to spare themselves further embarrassment and just move on.

    Yes, nothing has changed. Another lie from the President brushed off by his supporters,

    So what is it you want? You want his core supporters to crucify him? I didn't see Obama supporters doing that whenever he screwed up which was a lot. But many of us are not that partisan and will criticize Trump if he is wrong on the issues as I have done.

    and another investigation that will be forgotten by the Trump camp when it inevitably leads nowhere. How is that investigation into the millions of illegal voters going?

    And how how about the Russian conspiracy theory, how's that working out for liberals? Not good, not good at al. Keep grasping guys. The tax thing was a huge embarrassment and Maddow is still feeling the brunt of that disaster.

    Soon Trump's handlers will put another bogus story in front of him, he'll tweet it as fact, and we'll start all over while his handlers continue dismantling the government.

    Probably, you guys will just have to deal with it.
