    It's like saying no one dies because they are shot with a gun, it's the bullet that kills them, but then corporate GOP won't allow bullets to be regulated either.

    It seems that because Obama hired Flynn and fired him Trump wanted to do the "right thing", he hired Flynn. Now Trump is stuck with the Flynn saga. Trump is obviously his own worse enemy.

    The thing that some folks don't seem to get is... taking care of poor people makes you richer! I'm not an economist, but what I can see happening where I live is that we have a very productive workforce that generates a huge cash flow. And we all know who likes to profit from huge cash flows, right?
    To be perfectly honest I should point out that while this works for us, it probably drains money and resources out of third world countries, so this Trump thing and EU infighting might turn out to be a boon for them.

    I have a great idea! Take everyone who is registered republican and take away their healthcare. They don't want it. According to the conservative mindset, a person should make their own way. So make your own way, conservatives. But bear in mind, you can't use the hospitals or doctor's offices unless you can pay the whole bill. No freeloading.

    I've actually looked into it and the Australian healthcare system is one of the best out there and the cost of health is HALF per capita than what we have here in the US.

    they have a single payor system and they also have private insurance for extras (like elective surgeries).

    why don't we just adopt their system? ... oh right... the insurance companies who would lose money have a lobby that has bought our congress, who in turn have brainwashed half the public into thinking "why should I pay for someone else's healthcar"... not realizing that since the cost would be HALF per capita, they would be spending LESS on healthcare than they do now, thus SAVING money. Can't reason with close-minded idiots, I guess...

    The best thing to do is EVERYONE, & I mean everyone with sense, call their representative in the Senate and tell them how you feel about the bill. Remind them that you not only will vote against them, but will do everything you are able to do to support the opposition, to aid in their losing the vote! Let's clean house & see to it that any problems with the system we have now, Obamacare, is fixed. Then we have to, as Americans, remain active in governing. And while we are 'cleaning house', Impeach trumpo!

    These filthy excuses for human beings... slapping each other on the back and laughing about killing thousands of Americans and giving themselves massive tax breaks... "You have better health care than we do" trump to Aussie PM... and most trumpkins didn't realize that the health care bill that was keeping them alive and healthy WAS Obama Care... ("No it wasn't it's Trumps Affordable Health Care".  You stupid pathetic trumpkins. I get that you were dissatisfied with the status quo... but to turn the world over to El Diablo... sheeeeyit boy.)

    It's not that difficult to set up a for profit healthcare insurance system that is both profitable and takes good care of the insured at a reasonable cost. However, to do that the federal government must be willing to create and enforce strong regulations over the whole healthcare industry, otherwise costs tend to spiral out of control.

    This is the biggest difference between the US and other successful healthcare systems, they are all different except when it comes to regulations.

    You know, it's almost like they understand that what they're doing does more harm than good, and that they know that what they're doing is essentially giving more money to the wealthy by making lower income and less healthy groups (which are distinct groups, for now) suffer and die. Or worse, that they're voting for it because it's a "Rebublican" bill, and don't actually care what the bill contains as long as they're seen as "supporting Republican ideals". There's these little slips like Trump talking about Australia's healthcare system, the fact that many people who voted for the bill either haven't read it, or openly admit that it's awful, and the fact that they're doing the exact same problematic things that they criticized a few years ago. It IS a bad thing to rush a bill, but they don't get to criticize it if they're going to turn around and do it immediately.

    Call me a socialist, or a communist, or whatever, but single-payer healthcare is a much simpler and cheaper system for almost everyone involved. And it covers the sick and those in need, which is what healthcare is supposed to do. I mean, come on, it isn't brain surgery or rocket science. Okay, maybe some brain surgery, but that's what it's paying for, not what it requires.

    The fun part? The "great gentleman from Australia" is trying to dismantle our system for the same ideological reasons the US doesn't have single-payer healthcare yet (corporate cronyism) and the true irony is that that statement was the first actually true statement Trump has made since getting elected. (facepalm).

    Hey Seth Meyer,

    I might sound a little mean, since us Canadians actually don't drink maple syrup, we actually drink beer. I mean stuff more brown than your fake tan.

    You might think Trump's presidency is funny, but a large portion of us, actual people, think it's a disaster. Why don't you talk about Canada opening new trade systems with the EU?

    If you think canadians are so nice, maybe you should read machiavel. Sarcasm and apologetics you know, it would help your act.

    I was left with the thought, " thank goodness i live in America, here, where bullshit proposed such as described in this segment has the opportunity to be stopped". Society is all people, the trump's, the clinton's, and everything in between and beyond; the question then is, how do we rule the mob: have the mob rule itself. Everyone gets a chance, even trump's. and we're here, seeing what his personality type can do, and if enough of us dont like what he is doing, we can attempt to persuade/interfere. Good on you Seth Meyers, if i knew you in person id do some sorta awkward fist/high five combo and tell you youve been on fire this week

    For 32 years of my life, I worked for Dr.'s and or Blue Cross Blue Shield. Yes people do die because they do not have access to care or the money for the expensive policies to cover it. The GOP is so out of touch with the average working person, I would say it's funny but its not. They want people who are not rich, to work and pay the taxes that they don't, until they die, so they can't draw social security. It leave's more corporate welfare for them.
